Northgate Information Solutions has completed the £54.3m acquisition of Anite Public Sector Holdings, as part of its long-term strategic expansion in the public sector service transformation market.
The deal, says Northgate, confirms its position as the UK's leading player in the local government, social housing and criminal justice public services markets.
It comes seven months after the acquisition of Northgate by private equity firm Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co (KKR).
The acquisition is part of a long-term strategy to broaden and strengthen Northgate's capacity to meet its clients' changing needs for "citizen-centred services".
Northgate has integrated seven acquisitions in the past five years. The acquisition strategy, it says, "Has generated profitable growth through promoting a performance culture, driving through innovation and putting quality at the heart of everything the company does."
