Newsbrief: Private equity company HgCapital has acquired a majority share in The Foundry, maker of art tools such as Modo, Mari, and Nuke, among many others -- to the tune of £200 million ($312 million).

Its previous owner was another private equity firm: The Carlyle Group.

In its press release on the deal, The Foundry said the investment "kicks off its next growth phase," but was mum on concrete plans for the money.
