Infor acquires SSA Global

Infor, a global enterprise software provider, will acquire SSA Global.

Under the terms of the agreement, Infor has agreed to pay $19.50 per share in cash to SSA Global’s shareholders. The agreement was approved by SSA Global’s Special Committee of independent directors, as well as the Board of Directors. The parties anticipate closing the transaction in the third calendar quarter of 2006. The closing is subject to certain conditions, including receipt of regulatory approvals and SSA Global shareholder approval. Certain shareholders representing approximately 84 percent of SSA Global’s outstanding shares have entered into voting agreements to support the merger.

“With this acquisition, Infor will become the third largest enterprise software provider in the industry with approximately $1.6 billion in revenue,” said Jim Schaper, Infor’s Chairman and CEO. “Infor has become a significant force in the industry by assembling and innovating market-specific, best-in-class enterprise software solutions, which provide customers with a flexible choice in the market.”

“In a rapidly consolidating marketplace we have seen that size and scale matter,” said Mike Greenough, Chairman, President and CEO of SSA Global.
