Wipro acquired insurtech Aggne Global for $66 mn

Wipro, Indian largest information technology services firm, acquires 60% of US-based insurtech firm Aggne Global Inc and its Hyderabad-based affiliate Aggne Global IT Services for $66 mn in an all-cash deal, with an option to purchase the remaining stake over a period of time, as per a stock exchange filing.

Revenues of the Aggne Group are $4.5 mn for calendar year 2021, $9.1 mn for 2022, and $17.9 mn 2023.

This acquisition of Aggne will strengthen Wipro’s competitive advantage in the insurance sector—particularly in the property & casualty (P&C) insurance space.

This combination will enhance Wipro’s P&C core system implementation capabilities specifically in the area of Duck Creek.

Aggne’s Swift IPs combined with Wipro’s wider offerings will position us as an end-to-end player in the P&C insurance space.
