A UK website announced this morning that “Buyout giant Permira could scupper Swiss group Temenos’ plans to take over British banking technology firm Misys.”
Since 1985, the Permira funds have made close to 200 private equity investments, and today the Permira funds own over 20 companies around the world, among the most famous is Hugo Boss. In the financial sector Permira owns Acromas and Just Retirement, both firms based in UK.
Burning questions is whether Permira is the only one? And what Temenos can do about?
