Sage and Intuit

The papers today comment on a possible bid for Sage - either from Intuit or private equity. (Actually, one report suggested Infosys as a possibloe buyer - but that would just be plain daft!) As I hope readers will recall, I have long (like for at least the last 7 years now!) suggested that Intuit and Sage fit together like a hand in a glove. The geographic coverage is complementary and Intuit would take Sage coverage into the personal arena whereas Sage would extend Intuit further up the size chain.

I'd personally have liked Sage to buy Intuit - rather than the other way around. But I guess that is wishful thinking. I'd still hate to lose one of my two remaining "Boring" companies though.
