Software AG To Buy IDS Scheer

With 47.68% of the company already pledged to it by its two founders, Software AG says it intends to tender for the rest of German-based IDS Scheer AG and create a global vendor of infrastructure software and Business Process Management (BPM) that has more than 6,000 employees and upwards of $1.4 billion in sales.
