Still, it is the remains of this once scam-hit company on which its saviour Tech Mahindra will bank upon significantly to move up the ladders of the Indian IT sector charts, say industry experts.
It came to be known by January 2009 that Satyam (a Sanskrit word that means truth) was home to India's biggest ever corporate scam, admitted to by its own founder and then Chairman B Ramalinga Raju, and the scandal broke the company's share price to as low as Rs 11.50.
Tech Mahindra on Friday announced the completion of allocation of its shares to the shareholders of Satyam Computer Services, raising the issued capital of the firm from 129 million shares to 232 million.
They last traded at a level close to Rs 120 a piece and the value of each erstwhile Satyam share is now equivalent to about Rs 130 a piece, taking into account Tech Mahindra's current share price of Rs 1,120.
Experts say it made sense for the new owner to drop the Satyam brand name from the business, given its infamous past.
