Wipro Expands In Brazil, Acquiring IT Outsourcer IVIA Serviços de Informática Ltda in Brazil

IT outsourcing giant Wipro Limited (NYSE: WIT, BSE: 507685, NSE: WIPRO) continues its expansion into South America, announcing this month that it has signed an agreement to acquire Brazil based IVIA Serviços de Informática Ltda.

IVIA is headquartered in the Northeast of Brazil, with offices in Fortaleza-Ceará, Recife-Pernambuco and Natal-Rio Grande do Norte. Founded in 1996, IVIA provides IT solutions including system development, maintenance, consulting and project management services to clients in different sectors such as Financial Services, Transportation, Retail, Healthcare, Consumer Goods and Manufacturing in Brazil. 

IVIA’s local talent and long-standing relationships combined with Wipro’s global expertise will help expand the geographical footprint in Brazil. The acquisition will also help Wipro set up delivery centres in the North East of Brazil leveraging IVIA’s workforce.

Wipro has a significant presence in Latin America with offices across five countries in the region – Brazil, Mexico, Chile, Colombia and Costa Rica. In Brazil, Wipro has a vision to grow the operations by bringing the best of its global experience to the local market and becoming a partner of choice as an end-to-end IT services provider. This acquisition is another significant step towards Wipro’s commitment to this region.
