Hopefully as part of the acquisition...
They'll sort out Phoenix's shambolic SCM and fulfillment processes.
I won't hold my breath though.
Acquisitive B2B tech and comms player Daisy Group has bid 160 pence per share for LSE-listed Phoenix IT Group valuing the services operation at around £133m. Talk of a deal has rumbled along for more than a year but with Phoenix in the middle of a three-year turnaround plan under the latest CEO and no longer reporting steep …
At the rate they are dumping staff it looks like they are doing the equivalent of looking down the back of the corporate sofa for loose change!
New 'rookie' CEO looks like he wants to be taken seriously as the man to sweep in new changes and ideas like so many others at so many other companies. Just hope he doesn't make the easy mistake of removing the core capability as part of an 'efficiency drive'.
Purchase of Phoenix is interesting, double the size of the company in both turnover and headcount, twice the size, double the fun.
Updated UK customers of datacenter and colo service provider Sungard Availability Services are to be transferred to Daisy Corporate Services, part of the Daisy Group, months after Sungard went into administration.
According to some reports, Daisy Group has signed a deal to acquire the UK arm of Sungard, in a move that would see the company pick up Sungard's former customers, including major banks and other financial institutions.
However, a statement given to The Register by the administrators, Teneo Financial Advisory, merely states that some Sungard customers will be transferred to Daisy Corporate Services, and it is not clear how many are included this arrangement.
