Duluth, Georgia-based NCR Corporation has completed its acquisition of Retalix Ltd., a global provider of innovative retail software and services based in Ra’anana, Israel, with US headquarters in Plano, Texas.
“This acquisition is another demonstration of NCR’s commitment to global innovation, leadership and delivering a world-class portfolio of solutions that create significant value for our shareholders and customers,” says Bill Nuti, NCR chairman and CEO. “Retalix’s market-leading software, services capabilities, and exceptional talent are a strategic fit for NCR, and support our continued focus on a future driven by software, wrapped elegantly in hardware and services.”
In the transaction, NCR is paying a cash purchase price of $30.00 per Retalix share, implying a transaction value of approximately $650 million, excluding transaction related fees. With the completion of the transaction, Retalix has now become a wholly owned subsidiary of NCR, and its common stock has ceased to trade on the NASDAQ Global Select Market and Tel Aviv Stock Exchange and will be delisted.
