Infor inherits Geac's solutions and employees

Private equity firm Golden Gate Capital has acquired enterprise solution vendor Geac Computer Corp. Ltd. in an all-cash deal valued at $1 billion. Golden Gate Capital plans to "aggressively support" the Geac business units. Upon completion of the acquisition, Geac will be reorganized into two separate Golden Gate Capital portfolio companies.

As part of the reorganization, rival enterprise solution vendor Infor, also a Golden Gate Capital-funded company, will acquire Geac's enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions — including System21, Runtime, RatioPlan, Streamline, and Management Data. Product support personnel will also move to Infor.
