Tech Mahindra Limited is an Indian multinational provider of information technology (IT), networking technology solutions and Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) to various industry verticals and horizontals. Anand Mahindra is the Chairman of Tech Mahindra, which is headquartered at Pune and has its registered office in Mumbai.

Part of the Mahindra Group, Tech Mahindra is a US$4.7 billion company[3] with over 113,550 employees across 90 countries.[2] Tech Mahindra was ranked #5 in India's IT firms and overall #111 in Fortune India 500 list for 2012.[4] Tech Mahindra, on 25 June 2013, announced the completion of a merger with Mahindra Satyam.[5]

Tech Mahindra has 926 active clients as of March 2018.[2]



Mahindra & Mahindra started a joint venture with British Telecom in 1986 as a technology outsourcing firm. British Telecom initially had around 30 percent stake in the Tech Mahindra company. In December 2010, British Telecom sold 5.5 per cent of its stake in Tech Mahindra to Mahindra & Mahindra for Rs 451 crore.[6][dead link] In August 2012, British Telecom sold 14.1 per cent of its stake to institutional investors for about Rs 1,395 crore. In December 2012, British Telecom sold its remaining 9.1 per cent (11.6 million shares) shareholding to institutional investors for a total gross cash proceeds of Rs 1,011.4 crore. This sale marked the exit of British Telecom from Tech Mahindra.[7]

Acquisition of Satyam Computer Services Ltd.[edit]

After the Satyam scandal of 2008-09 Tech Mahindra bid for Satyam Computer Services, and emerged as a top bidder with an offer of Rs 58.90 a share for a 31 per cent stake in the company, beating a strong rival Larsen & Toubro.[8] After evaluating the bids, the government-appointed board of Satyam Computer announced on 13 April 2009: "its Board of Directors has selected Venturbay Consultants Private Limited, a subsidiary controlled by Tech Mahindra Limited as the highest bidder to acquire a controlling stake in the Company, subject to the approval of the Hon'ble Company Law Board." Through a subsidiary, it has emerged victorious in Satyam sell-off, a company probably two times its size in number of people. This was one of the largest merger deals in India's tech industry.

Merger with Mahindra Satyam[edit]

Mahindra Group V-C Anand Mahindra

Tech Mahindra announced its merger with Mahindra Satyam on March 21, 2012, after the boards of the two companies gave their approval, to create a 2.5 billion $ IT Company[9][10] The two firms had received the go-ahead for the merger from the Bombay Stock Exchange and the National Stock Exchange.[11] On June 11, 2013, Andhra Pradesh High Court gave its approval for the merger of Mahindra Satyam with Tech Mahindra, after the Bombay high court had already given its approval.[12][13][14][15] Vineet Nayyar said that technical approvals from the Registrar of Companies in Andhra Pradesh and Maharashtra are required which will be done in two to four weeks, and within eight weeks, the new merged entity would be in place. The new organisation would be led by Anand Mahindra as Chairman, Vineet Nayyar as Vice Chairman and C. P. Gurnani as the CEO and Managing Director.[16][17][18] On June 25, 2013, Tech Mahindra announced the completion of its merger with Mahindra Satyam to create the nation's fifth largest software services company with a turnover of USD 2.7 billion.[19][20] Tech Mahindra got the approval from the registrar of companies for the merger at 11:45 pm on June 24, 2013. July 5, 2013 has been determined as record date on which the Satyam Computer Services ('Mahindra Satyam') shares will be swapped for Tech Mahindra shares under the approved scheme.[21] Mahindra Satyam (Satyam Computer Services), was suspended from trading with effect from July 4, 2013, following the merger.[22] Tech Mahindra completed share swap and allocated its shares to the shareholders of Satyam Computer Services on July 12, 2013.[23] The stock exchanges have accorded their approval for trading the new shares effective July 12, 2013.
