ITEM 2.  ACQUISITION OR DISPOSITION OF ASSETS.

Item 2(a).  Date, Manner and Description of Transaction.

On November 2, 2000, Portal Software, Inc. acquired solution42 AG, a German
company, pursuant to an Investment Agreement dated the same date (a copy of
which is being filed herewith as an exhibit to this Current Report on Form 8-K).
In connection with this acquisition, Portal's newly created German subsidiary
issued ordinary shares to the shareholders of solution42 in exchange for all of
the outstanding shares of solution42; these shares of Portal's German subsidiary
may be exchanged for up to 7,500,000 shares of Portal common stock pursuant to
an option Portal granted to the shareholders of solution42 in the Investment
Agreement. Portal also has the option under certain circumstances, to force such
an exchange. 681,812 of the 7,500,000 shares of Portal common stock which are
issuable in connection with the acquisition are subject to an earn-out which is
contingent upon retention of solution42's key employees for two years. The earn-
out is proportionately reduced for each such employee that leaves the employ of
Portal prior to the end of such two year period. This acquisition will be
accounted for by Portal as a purchase. Portal will take a one-time charge for
purchased in-process research and development expenses and certain acquisition
costs in the fourth quarter of its 2001 fiscal year.

The foregoing description of the Investment Agreement and the transactions
contemplated thereby does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its
entirety by reference to the full text of such document.  A copy of the
