IT outsourcing and consulting firm Incentra Solutions Inc. announced today that it has acquired Helio Solutions Inc., a provider of IT and data center services, for some $10.3 million. Incentra said the final sales price consisted of $5 million in cash, six million restricted shares of Incentra common stock, and the issuance of an unsecured, convertible, three-year note for $770,000.
