This week sees human resources service provider Ceridian Corporation begin operating under the ownership of financial services firm, Fidelity National Financial (FNF) and private equity firm, Thomas H Lee Partners following a $5.3bn (£2.6bn) acquisition deal.

FNF contributed about $525m (£253m) of the total $1.6bn (£772m) equity funding for the acquisition, and a 33% stake in Ceridian, which is based in the US and has offices in the UK.
