Gartner Inc. said Monday that it finished its purchase of AMR Research Inc. for $63 million in cash.

Gartner had announced the purchase earlier this month and said it was expected to close this year. The company does not believe the purchase will have a material impact on its financial results this year, but anticipates it will add to its earnings going forward.

Shares of Gartner added 40 cents, or 2.3 percent, to $17.82 in afternoon trading.
