EDS buys into India

Complements strategy, apparently...

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Services behemoth EDS is buying MphasiS, an Indian outsourcing firm for $380m.

Although the price of MphasiS shares, about $4.58 per share, represents a 30 per cent increase on their six month average price, investors were not impressed. MphasiS shares on the Bombay stock exchange fell 1.8 per cent to 212 rupees.

The deal depends on EDS getting 83m shares, or 52 per cent of the firm.

MphasiS employs 11,000 people in India, and another 1,000 elsewhere, and has customers in airlines, banking, brokerage, insurance, retail and technology firms.

"This offer is complementary to our overall strategy to enhance EDS' presence and capabilities in India," EDS chairman and chief executive officer Mike Jordan said.

EDS expects the deal to close in the third quarter.
