We are very excited to work with its outstanding management team to realize our shared growth ambitions for the company."

The Managing Director of Aditya Birla Nuvo, Dr. Rakesh Jain, said, "Our association with Minacs began in 2006, and goes back earlier with the Aditya Birla Group's entry into IT-ITeS as a sector. This relationship does not come to an end here, as our Group companies will continue to work with Minacs given its domain expertise and reputation as a globally respected business solutions provider."
