JDA Software is selling itself to RedPrairie, a privately equity-backed enterprise software firm, for $1.9bn in cash.

The $45 a share deal is 33 per cent higher than JDA's closing price on October 26, the day before Reuters told the world that the company was exploring a sale.

JDA and RedPrairie specialise in different areas of the supply chain software market, and the combined entity claims annual revenues of more than $1 billion.

JDA revenues for the nine months ended September 2012 were $495.5m, so it is much bigger than its prospective owner.

JDA's board has voted for the merger and considering the premium on offer it is safe to assume that this is a done deal. JDA boss Hamish Brewer will lead the combined company as CEO.

RedPrairie is controlled by New Mountain Capital, a US private equity firm. ®
