Infor, one of the world's largest providers of enterprise software, has completed three acquisitions which broaden its offerings and provide a wider choice of products for customers.
 
In addition to closing a deal to buy SSA Global, Infor has acquired Extensity, a supplier of financial performance management software, and Systems Union Group, a UK-based provider of financial and performance management solutions.
 
Infor already owns RunTime, a specialist division that provides software solutions for the apparel and footwear industry, which it bought from Geac Computer Corporation Ltd last November. 
 
The deals mean that Infor now has annual revenues totalling $2.1bn, offices in 100 countries and approximately 70,000 customers.  
 
"We are broadening our offering to include solutions that will enable our customers to improve performance throughout the organisation," explains Jim Schaper, chairman and CEO of Infor. 
 
"Companies can now choose fully integrated solutions for specific industries as well as standalone solutions from one provider."
 
Extensity and Systems Union products will be delivered as part of Infor's best-in-class solutions such as enterprise asset management, customer relationship management, and supply chain planning and execution. 
 
The two stage transaction was financed through a combination of cash on balance sheet and committed debt financing.
 
 The aggregate facilities are comprised of a $150m revolving credit facility, $2.25bn term loan facility, and a $1.425bn senior subordinated bridge facility.
