Norwegian software and outsourcing group Visma ASA said on Friday (21 April) that United Kingdom-based accounting and business management software supplier The Sage Group Plc's offer period for its voluntary offer for Visma ASA had expired.

The level of acceptances had not reached 90% and therefore the offer would lapse.
