Networking giant Cisco Systems has completed its acquisition of software company Splunk in a deal valued at approximately $28bn.

The move unites two industry leaders and promises significant benefits for customers, partners and developers.

Cisco and Splunk notified NASDAQ of the completion of the acquisition, with Splunk’s common stock ceasing trading on the exchange before the morning of March 19.

The transaction is expected to boost the networking major’s cash flow and profitability within the next two fiscal years while accelerating revenue growth.

“We are thrilled to officially welcome Splunk,” said Chuck Robbins, chair and CEO of Cisco. “As one of the world’s largest software companies, we will revolutionise the way our customers leverage data to connect and protect every aspect of their organisation as we help power and protect the AI revolution.”

Gary Steele, EVP and general manager, Splunk, said uniting the companies would “bring tremendous value to our joint customers worldwide”.
