Electronics For Imaging (EFI), the parent company of industrial inkjet systems suppliers Jetrion and VUTEk, announced on April 29 that it has reached an agreement to buy Radius Solutions, a top maker of MIS/ERP software for package printing. The purchase is subject to conditions but EFI managers said in a conference call that they expect the deal to close in the second or third quarter and to be slightly accretive to full year 2010 results.
