(Reuters) – SAPCEO Bill McDermott on Tuesday welcomed a $1.3 billion (993.2 million pounds) investment by activist investor Elliott, saying it was aligned with his goal of expanding margins through driving top-line growth.

“They have been a fantastic investor. I am very proud they have chosen SAP,” McDermott told reporters at SAP’s annual U.S. user conference in Orlando.
