Mergers & Acquisitions

Investing in Growth

As a global leader in business infrastructure software, in flexible business applications and in Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA), we constantly seek growth via acquisitions and investments.

Software AG acquires technologies and companies that complement and enhance our product portfolio and market position or enable us to enter new geographies or business areas.

In the last years, Software AG acquired twelve companies with a total transaction volume of over US$ 1,300 million and over 4.000 employees, i.a. webMethods, Inc., a market leader in integration technologies and BPM, and IDS Scheer, the market leader in process analysis and modeling.

Our M&A team is the first contact into Software AG when it comes to M&A, minority and majority investments and joint ventures, particularly for investment banks, private equity and venture capital firms.
