Private equity company Thoma Bravo is in advanced discussions to purchase NextGen Healthcare, a company that specialises in health records software, reported Bloomberg News.

A deal could be finalised this week, the news agency stated, citing people with knowledge of the development.

Despite this, there has not been a definitive decision on the matter yet, and the talks may not lead to a conclusion. NextGen is currently valued at approximately $1.3bn.

Neither of the parties involved have confirmed the development.

Before Thoma Bravo began negotiations, other buyout firms had also shown interest in NextGen, as per the unnamed sources.

Last month, Reuters reported that NextGen is considering various possibilities, which includes divesting the business.
