Sanderson supplies enterprise software and services to manufacturing and multi-channel retail markets. Manufacturing turnover is reducing while multi-channel retail turnover is growing strongly. The business has been transformed by the acquisitions of Retail Business Solutions, which supplies Retail-J software. Sanderson paid an initial £12.5m, including £225,000 in shares, for RBS, which had £3.5m in the bank. An additional £1.5m may be payable depending on performance.
