Roper Technologies to Buy Deltek

Tech company Roper Technologies has signed a deal to buy enterprise software and solutions provider Deltek.

The all cash deal is valued at $2.8 billion.

Roper Technologies is in the business of acquiring technology companies in global niche markets. Deltek caters to project-based businesses such as government contractors and professional services companies, and following the acquisition will operate as a distinct company within Roper.
