FRANKFURT (Reuters) - German business Software AG can spend 1-1.5 billion euros ($1.15 billion-$1.73 billion) on acquisitions, CEO Sanjay Brahmawar told Reuters on Thursday, as he seeks to drive growth in data integration and the industrial internet.
Brahmawar, a former IBM executive appointed last year, said in an interview there would be no staff layoffs under a strategy overhaul that he has led at Darmstadt-based Software AG. Larger competitor SAP said this week it would let go of more than 4 percent of its workforce.
