Blog: NASSCOM Official Blog

The Global Story

Globally, the technology sector valuations have been relatively steady over the last few months despite compared to most other sectors which have seen significant drop in valuations post the COVID-19 outbreak. However, the fall in valuations still makes a good business case for large technology companies to acquire new capabilities, who are sitting on large cash reserves.

New acquisition focus areas emerge to leverage opportunities in the newnormal

The Indian Story is also driven by increasing interest to acquire….

The Indian technology leaders have a similar story and together the three top companies TCS, Infosys and Wipro had a collective cash reserve of over $13 billion as of April 2020.  Also, leadership across all of them have showed interest towards acquisitions.

 …across newer areas of interest

Industry analysts believe the focus of these acquisitions will be on cognitive and self-healing IT platforms and cloud-based cyber security products and patent-led products. Another key focus areas for Indian IT companies could be the captive technology centers of global corporations.


Overall, while the M&A bandwagon has picked up globally for the technology companies, Indian companies are yet to close any new acquisition, though have gradually started the run. However, there is still time for them to pick-up some more good acquisition opportunities, till then we will wait to see where the new investments are being made.
