Compel buys Peoplesoft house

Bolsters Oracle practice

Designing a Defense for Mobile Applications

Compel has bought Allinity Limited, a specialist Peoplesoft consultancy, for a down-payment of £1m in cash and shares.

Allinity shareholders will also get 70 per cent of the pre-tax profit above an unspecified threshold level for the year ended 30 June 2006. They are locked into the share element, today worth £400,000, for one year, and half of their shares for two years.

Welwyn Garden City -based reseller Compel will merge the business into its Oracle practice.

Allinity employs 26 staff, of which more than half are Peoplesoft consultants. The company turned over £2.7m and had pre-tax profits of £68,000 for the year to 30 June 2005. Compel forecasts that performance this year will be better, noting a pick-up in the PeopleSoft market, now that the dust has settled over the fiercely-contested takeover battle by Oracle. ®
