Merger between Hinduja Global and Nxtdigital: Merger between Hinduja Global and Nxtdigital gets green light from shareholders

Mumbai: Hinduja Global Solutions (HGS) said on Friday that 94.25% of its shareholders had approved the plan of arrangement between the Nxtdigital group company and itself.

In February 2022, the HGS Board of Directors had approved the acquisition of the media and digital businesses of Nxtdigital. The National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) had convened a meeting of

Global shareholders on Sept. 2 to review the deal.

In a separate filing to the stock exchanges, Nxtdigital said 99.99% of its non-promoting shareholders voted in favor of the plan of arrangement between the company and

Solutions.

Nxtdigital said Friday’s shareholder meeting was held pursuant to the National Company Law Tribunal’s July 29 order.

“This overwhelming support from minority shareholders reflects the fact that the company has always kept the interests of minority shareholders in mind when making any strategic decision,” said Vynsley Fernandes, Managing Director and CEO of Nxtdigital in a statement.
