In brief: Name change for Micro Focus

Acquisition brings change of identity

US/UK software developer, Micro Focus, is changing its name to Merant. The proposed name change will be voted on at a shareholders’ meeting on 4 February. The company said that it wants to shed the old name to reflect the change in its focus, in the wake of its £322 million acquisition of Intersolv back in June. ®
