The AIM-listed provider of portfolio analysis tools said the all-cash offer of 230p per share, a 55% premium on its Thursday close price, had been approved by investors representing 65.2% of the company’s shares and is expected to complete in the fourth quarter of this year.
Rory Curran, StatPro’s chairman, said the tie-up with Confluence would offer a “more comprehensive range of support services and analytics” to its customers, adding that the US firm had indicated it would invest in the group with its “substantial resources”.
"Confluence is an excellent and complementary partner both in terms of geographical disposition and product capabilities”, he said.
Founded in 1991, Pittsburgh-based Confluence provides back-office automation systems to investment managers.
It is majority-owned by TA Associates, one of the world’s largest private equity firms.
In early trading on Friday, StatPro shares surged 53% to 227p, just shy of the takeover price.
