Control Data already holds preferred stock in the firm that is convertible into a 49% stake, and the agreement will increase its ownership to 100%. VTC, founded in 1984, had sales of $36m in 1986, and projects turnover of $47m this year. It will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of CDC under its existing management.
