MONTREAL -- Lightspeed POS Inc. says it has reached agreement on an acquisition valued at $350 million that will beef up its presence in Asia-Pacific.

The Montreal-based e-commerce company says it will buy New Zealand-based VendLimited, a cloud-based retail management software company, that will about double its customer base and expand its retail footprint in the region.

The deal, expected to close by the end of April, will ultimately also give Vend customers access to Lightspeed's payments, e-commerce, loyalty and supply network products.
