£334 million bid for Visma

Listed accountancy vendor Sage is to make an offer to acquire Oslo-based

recommended by Visma’s board of directors.

Visma is the largest Scandinavian vendor of business management solutions for
small and medium-sized businesses and had revenues of approximately £166m last
year

Paul Walker, Sage’s chief executive, said: ‘The proposed acquisition of Visma

is consistent with the Sage strategy of expanding geographically into new and

attractive markets. We see significant potential to build on Visma’s leading

position in the Scandinavian SME market.’
