Blue Prism to be taken over by SS&C Technologies in £1.24bn deal

(Sharecast News) - AIM-listed software company Blue Prism has agreed to be taken over by US fintech SS&C Technologies for £1.24bn in cash.
SS&C's offer trumps an earlier offer from US private equity firm Vista at £1.22bn.

Under the terms of the deal, Blue Prism shareholders will receive 1,275p a share.

The board of Blue Prism had initially backed the offer from Vista, which was sweetened from an initial £1.1bn.
