Tempe, Ariz. (Oct. 30, 2003) -- Tectura, a Tempe, Ariz.-based reseller for Microsoft Business Solutions, plans to make acquisitions with $12 million in financing it recently received from venture capital firm Pequot Ventures of Westport, Conn.

Tectura chief executive Terry Petrzelka said the investment, combined with Microsoft's commitment to his company, will enable Tectura "to accelerate its national expansion as a dedicated Microsoft channel partner that delivers true business value to companies across the United States."
