This investment places Hinduja Tech at a post-money equity value of USD 255 million.

As per the official release, the infusion of capital will allow Hinduja Tech to augment its existing capabilities in research and development through organic and inorganic means, enhance its global footprint and expand its state of the art labs to gain momentum in its journey towards emerging as a global leader in sustainable engineering mobility services.

It claims to work with automotive organisations (OEMs and Tier-X Suppliers) and disruptive mobility players in North America, Europe, APAC and India.

HT has its presence in over 38 countries and employs about 200,000 people with multiple industry verticals like mobility, lubricants and specialty chemicals, banking and finance, digital technology, energy, media and entertainment, realty, healthcare, project development and trading.
