German business software maker SAP said on Thursday it has agreed to acquire US-based travel and expense management service Concur Technologies in a cash deal valued at $7.3 billion.

SAP said in a statement it would offer $129 per share, a 20 per cent premium over the September 17th closing price.

Based on 57 million outstanding shares, the offer for Bellevue, Washington-based Concur is valued at $7.3 billion. Including debt, the offer represents an enterprise value of about $8.3 billion, SAP said.

The Concur board of directors has unanimously approved the transaction, which is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2014 or the first quarter 2015, subject to shareholder and regulatory approvals, SAP said.
SAP is the largest software company in Europe and the third largest in the world.

It opened its first facility in Ireland in 1997 and currently employs about 1,200 people here.

Why do we punish the victims of hacking?

Hacks occur every 39 seconds, with 95% of them targeting governments, retailers and the tech industry. If the hackers are caught, they'll face prison time under the Computer Misuse Act. More often than not, the businesses who are victims of those attacks expose themselves to punishment of their own. The laws that determine the duty of protection owed to businesses and their customers is both vague and broad, making them question just how much protection...

These two statistics would suggest that perhaps women aren't just discouraged from entering the tech field, but may find it a challenging environment to work in both in terms of treatment and pay.
