CONTROL DATA SYSTEMS PICKS MICHAEL IN SUSSEX AS ITS LATEST ACQUISITION

By CBR Staff Writer

Control Data Systems Inc, Arden Hills, Minnesota, is scouring the globe for acquisitions these days, and its latest brings it here to the UK. It has signed a letter of intent to acquire systems integrator Michael Business Systems Plc based in Burgess Hill, near Gatwick airport in Sussex. Privately-held Michael is doing about UKP22.5m a year. Terms of the transaction are still being negotiated, and the acquisition is expected to be finalised in the first quarter. Michael specialises in personal computer local network enterprise-wide networking and integration services to more than 1,200 customers in UK commercial markets. It has 180 employees in three UK locations. This is a tremendous opportunity for us to gain access to the European market and to deliver to our customers something that no other product-independent integrator can- a European-wide network, said Michael Roberts.
