The completion of the acquisition follows the receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals and approval of the transaction by Yodlee's stockholders, which was obtained at a special meeting of Yodlee stockholders held on November 19, 2015.

Envestnet will pay approximately $371 million in cash and issue approximately 6,084,000 shares of Envestnet common stock in the transaction. Additionally, there were approximately 1,058,000 shares issued in connection with unvested employee equity awards.
