    Another casualty of the BSF failure no doubt...

    "At the time, NMS represented 23 per cent of Northgate’s turnover (FY08) (now only 17 per cent because of the acquisitions made by NGA since then). So, although a simplification, you could say that NMS was bought for about 253m in 2008. The sale to Capita has therefore netted KKR almost 75 per cent less than they paid for it," he claimed."

    Northgate thought they'd tap into the educational cash cow that all of these giants thought there was... Then reality kicked in.

    Looks like Capita now own Northern Ireland, as Northgate won the BSF style bid to refresh their IT and SIMS.net was the only MIS that was going to be used.
