Clari, a Sunnyvale, CA-based revenue operations leader, announced that it closed on a $225 million Series F round, raising the company’s total valuation to more than $2.6 billion. The new funding follows Clari’s $150 million Series E round in March 2021, bringing total funding in the last 12 months to $375 million while more than quadrupling the company’s valuation in two years.
The round was led by Blackstone through funds managed by Blackstone Growth (BXG), the firm’s growth equity business, and included existing investor Silver Lake, in addition to new investors Light Street Capital and Maverick Capital. Other existing investors participating in the round include B Capital Group, Bain Capital Ventures, Madrona Ventures, Northgate Capital, Sapphire Ventures, Sequoia Capital, Sequoia Capital Global Equities, and Tenaya Capital.
The company will use the proceeds of the investment round to expand its team globally and advance its technical strategy to give customers ever-greater control over their revenue. In 2021, Clari more than doubled its team to over 500, with plans to add another 300 employees in 2022, including adding twice as many employees in EMEA and formally expanding in APAC. Clari acquired its first company in 2021 and will use the proceeds from the investment round to fuel its acquisition strategy.
