Press Ganey Holdings Inc. (NYSE: PGND), which helps health-care providers survey patients, agreed to be acquired by private equity firm EQT in a deal valued at about $2.35 billion.

EQT will pay $40.50 a share in cash, according to a statement. The offer means a very small premium to Monday’s closing price of $40.33 for Press Ganey, which is majority-owned by private-equity firm Vestar Capital Partners. Still, the price is 62 percent higher than Press Ganey’s initial public offering price of $25 a share in May 2015.
