In July, Wipro had said IVIA's local talent and long-standing relationships, combined with its own global expertise, will help expand its geographical footprint in Brazil.

The acquisition will also help Wipro set up delivery centres in the northeast of Brazil leveraging IVIA's workforce, it had noted.

IVIA was privately held and had around 722 employees (as of December 2019). It had reported a net revenue of $13.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2019, according to Wipro's July filing.
