News about the SolarWinds Orion hack is generating a lot of questions about what this company is and who is behind it. What we know so far is that its corporate ties include gems like communist China, the Clintons and the Obamas.

In 2016, according to the company’s 10K on the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) website, SolarWinds was acquired by investment firms Silver Lake Partners and Thoma Bravo. Two years later, the company went public through an Initial Public Offering (IPO).

Later that year, SolarWinds’ IPO was completed, and 25 million shares of the company’s common stock were sold at an issue price of $15 per share. During this process, the company raised $375 million in gross proceeds, and approximately $353 million in net proceeds.

Before SolarWinds went public, however, and before it was purchased by Thoma Bravo and Silver Lake, it was founded by a Puerto Rican billionaire by the name of Orlando Bravo who contributed $100,000 to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign for the presidency.
