Amshold chairman Lord Sugar has sold UK PC vendor Viglen, which has merged with government reseller XMA.

Viglen customer services boss Glyn Wragg said that it was "business as usual" but did not talk about how the takeover will affect employees, reports Channelregister.

He said: "It has been announced that Viglen Technology and XMA have merged. This merger will create a £200 million turnover company with aspirations to grow to £300 million very quickly."

Viglen CEO Bordan Tkachuk will become chairman for the merged company, while XMA's Lee Hemani will become Viglen's MD.

Lord Sugar resigned as chairman of Viglen in 2009. The company sells PCs, software, servers and storage to consumers, as well the education, healthcare and emergency services sectors.
