The offer price is a 41% premium to Aveva's closing price of 2,192 pence a share on Aug. 23, the day before Schneider disclosed that it was considering a possible offer for the rest of Aveva that it didn't already own.

The offer prices puts an enterprise value on Aveva of GBP10.15 billion.

Schneider currently owns 178.6 million shares in Aveva, or 59.14% of its issued share capital via its subsidiary Samos Acquisition Company Ltd.
