Oracle Corp. (NYSE: ORCL) agreed to buy cloud-services company Textura (NYSE: TXTR) for $26 a share, expanding its engineering and construction services. The transaction is valued at about $663 million, net of Textura’s cash, Redwood City, California-based Oracle said in a statement Thursday.

Textura’s cloud services process $3.4 billion in payments for more than 6,000 projects a month, helping keep projects on time and on budget and reducing risk for developers and contractors, Oracle said. Textura will fit within Oracle Primavera, whose cloud services are “growing rapidly” as construction and engineering companies move from blueprints to digital.
