Infor buys Extensity, Systems Union

Infor a penny, in for $2.1bn in revenues

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Extensity, the venture capitalist-owned business software vendor formerly known as Geac has been bought by Infor - another VC enterprise. Extensity itself bought UK firm Systems Union only this April.

On paper the nascent group has revenues of $2.1bn, trailing only Oracle and SAP. Industry watchers have been surprised at a company swelling to such a size purely in the hands of VCs.

The Extensity deal was done with a mixture of cash and loans. A $150m revolving credit facility was backed with a $2.25bn term loan and a $1.425bn senior subordinated bridge facility.

Infor CEO Jim Schaper said: "Companies can now choose fully integrated solutions for specific industries as well as best-in-class standalone solutions from one provider."

With presence in 100 countries, the three companies have significant overlap in their products and midsize markets, so some consolidation can be expected.®
