Founded in 2009, IronSource is Israel’s largest web company and offers mostly monetization technology for mobile applications. CVC will acquire the stake in a secondary deal from IronSource’s founders and shareholders and become the company’s largest shareholder, though the founders will keep a controlling stake between them. Shareholders are also expected to receive $100 millions-worth of dividends ahead of the completion of the sale.

IronSource is expected to go public in the second half of 2020.

CVC and IronSource confimed Calcalist's report Thursday.
