New Delhi: Tech Mahindra Monday said it has extended the proposed merger of Mahindra Satyam with itself for six months.
The company in a BSE filing said that its "board of directors extended the validity of the (amalgamation) scheme by a further period of six months i.e. Up to September 30, 2013."
The board has extended "scheme of amalgamation and arrangement of Venturbay Consultants Pvt Ltd and Satyam Computer Services Ltd and C&S Systems Technologies Pvt Ltd and Mahindra Logisoft Business Solutions Ltd and CanvasM Technologies Ltd with Tech Mahindra Ltd and their respective shareholders and creditors", it said.
