(Bloomberg) -- Carlyle Group LP and Symantec Corp. have agreed to revise the terms of the deal for Symantec’s Veritas data-storage unit, according to people with knowledge of the matter.

Carlyle agreed to buy Veritas data-storage unit for $8 billion last August in the biggest U.S. leveraged buyout of 2015. A debt offering of $5.5 billion to fund the takeover was postponed because of market conditions, people familiar with the matter said in November.
