According to the press release, this acquisition is the conclusion of a strategy announced by Lexmark in October intended to "maximize shareholder value".  The manufacturer has also claimed that this transaction will cause "no disruption" to its activities.  The company will maintain its headquarters in the US and Paul Rooke remain at the head of it.  The company continues to invest after acquiring Kofax last year for a billion dollars, and continues to grow in the office market.
