The company has a revenue aspiration of $1 billion by FY31 (dollar revenue was at $146 million in FY22).
The company has said that acquisition would be a significant part of their 10-year strategy. Another likely use of the raised funds is to finance facility purchases.
The company has purchased a ready-to-use commercial property with a super built-up area of about 240,000 square feet in Bengaluru for a consideration of Rs 101 crore. "This increases our seating capacity and will augment our delivery and in-house training capabilities," the company had said.
