BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Louisiana tech companies e-Gov Systems and Antares Technology Solutions announced they will merger, though the companies will continue to operate independently.
The Advocate reports (http://bit.ly/15Qy2to ) terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Antares is a Baton Rouge software developer and consultant founded in 1988. New Orleans-based e-Gov Systems runs an online portal for payment of sales and use taxes. The two companies have 50 employees, combined.
The companies will continue to operate as they have, but will do so now under an umbrella company called Ram Ware LLC.
Ezra Hodge, chief executive officer of Ram Ware, says as far as products, clients and management structure go, the deal won't change anything.
