Info Service Firms to Merge: Ceridian Corp. said it will acquire Comdata Holdings Corp. in a stock deal worth $900 million, creating a company with $1.3 billion in annual revenue. The news ignited a jump in the stock of Brentwood, Tenn.-based Comdata, which rose $4.3125 to $24.1875 on the Nasdaq. Minneapolis-based Ceridian rose $2.25 to $44.125 on the New York Stock Exchange. Analysts said the deal is attractive from both a financing standpoint and because of potential synergies.
