This morning, two Philadelphia-area companies say they have purchased European operations:
1) Qlik Technologies Inc., Radnor, says it has acquired one of its software suppliers, NComVA AB, a Sweden-based company that develops "advanced visualization technology." QlikTech has used NComVA in its QlikView business-intelligence platform since 2011, the company said. QlikTech chief technology officer Anthony Deighton called NComVA's software apploications "gorgeous" in a statement and said his company will use it to expand its products, which help clients' employees search databases from the field. In its first-quarter 2013 10-Q report, page 11, QlikTech said it will pay a maximum $10.9 million (70.4 million Swedish kronor) for NComVA. QlikTech's founders are from Sweden and the company's R&D labs are in that country.
