“Will we continue to invest in acquisitions? Definitely, yes,” Klaus Helmrich told a news conference when asked whether Siemens would continue to buy so-called product lifecycle management software firms at the rate it has been doing.

Siemens agreed in January to buy U.S. engineering software firm CD-adapco for $970 million, the latest in a string of acquisitions of companies that help manage products from inception through to service or disposal.
