IT stocks are trading mixed led by Moser Baer and NIIT. However, Wipro and Infosys are witnessing losses. As per a leading daily, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) has acquired French firm ALTI SA for 75 m Euros (Rs 5.5 bn). This move will help TCS strengthen its presence in France and the other nations in the European region. ALTI SA is a leading French technology services firm with strong expertise in IT Services including Enterprise Solutions, Assurance and CRM solutions. We may note here that European region is only second to North America as a big market for Indian IT firms. Considering this huge opportunity, recently Infosys too had acquired Zurich based Lodestone Holding in September 2012.
