Autonomy said that it was attracted to the deal because it wants to expand its presence in the worldwide legal and compliance industry.
As part of the arrangement, Interwoven stockholders will receive approximately US$16.20 a share.
The deal was reportedly financed with cash, a £220m underwritten placing and a loan from Barclays.
Following completion of the deal in the second quarter of 2009, Autonomy will have a cash balance of around US$75 million.
The company expects to generate annual costs synergies of approximately US$40 million during the 12 months following the deal completion from the elimination of duplicate costs.
The consolidated group will have a client base of 20,000 businesses across the globe.
