  • Infosys is acquiring US-based data analytics firm Blue Acorn iCi for $125 million.

The Indian IT services giant Infosys announced that it will acquire US-based data analytics company Blue Acorn iCi for a lump sum of $125 million.

Already riding the rally in IT stocks after Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) earnings announcement yesterday, Infosys share price has surged 4% so far today.


“The move further strengthens Infosys’ end-to-end customer experience offerings and demonstrates its continued commitment to help clients navigate their digital transformation journey,” said the IT services major in a statement.

The deal, however, will not count towards the company’s second quarter earnings. The acquisition is expected to close during the third quarter of the current fiscal, subject to ‘customary closing conditions’, according to Infosys.

Making way in digital commerce
Blue Acorn’s complementary abilities will help Infosys thrive in the digital commerce space adding to the creative and marketing services it already has on hand after the acquisition of WONGDOODY.

Infosys President Ravi Kumar S iterated that the acquisition also reaffirms Infosys’ ongoing partnership with Adobe and the commitment to its ecosystem. It also deepens Infosys’ capabilities with Magento, Salesforce Commerce and Shopify ecosystems.
