merger, acquisition and takeover

Wiesbaden (euro adhoc) - With effect as of April 1st, 2008, P&I GmbH, Vienna, will be taking over E-PM and eco-STAFF, the HR business divisions of ecosys Informationstechnologie Gesellschaft m.b.H., Steyr.

ecosys is a Microsoft partner and a supplier of ERP solutions for the SME sector in Austria. ecosys is hiving off its human resources business divisions for strategic reasons. In the future the companies of the FWI Group, which ecosys also belongs to, will concentrate on their core business. The plan foresees jointly offering a total business management solution together with P&I GmbH and also tailoring this to international requirements - from business management process support to human resources.

As a result of the takeover of the E-PM business division - the human resources management solution of ecosys - P&I will be taking over about 80 customers in the SME sector - primarily in the public sector. "This will result in interesting synergy effects for P&I through the P&I HCM product", remarked Manfred Nagl, the managing director of P&I GmbH, Vienna.

By purchasing eco-STAFF - an industry business solution for manpower providers that covers the complete business process from the distribution and deployment planning function including performance documentation, as well as corporate management - P&I GmbH will be supplementing its portfolio for this promising business area. "Furthermore, P&I will be gaining a highly attractive staff of employees with a high level of specialist knowledge and an excellent understanding of the human resources processes that have to be mapped", says Nagl. "For us the location in Steyr and the resulting customer proximity with regard to the existing and target market in Upper Austria are additional factors in favour of this investment in the future".

Nagl primarily regards the product supplements as an attractive opportunity to develop new business options - especially within the strategic partnership with the corporate group of FWI Information Technology Gesellschaft m.b.H. and at the international level.

The eleven employees of the HR business division of ecosys will be taken over by P&I GmbH and will thus be integrated into a stock exchange listed and independent corporate group with a European orientation.

The parties have agreed to maintain secrecy with respect to the amount of the purchase price.
