The OMERS pension fund manager is reducing its stake in Constellation Software Inc. through an $89.5-million transaction with another institutional investor.

OMERS says it will continue to own more than 4.3 million common shares of Constellation, or 20.4 per cent of the Toronto-based company's equity, after selling 994,800 shares to an unidentified buyer.

Constellation develops, installs and customizes software for select industries.
