Aegis, Startek

Global outsourcing and technology services providers Aegis and Startek said they have completed their business merger transaction that will create a firm with revenues exceeding US$700 million. The merger deal was first announced in March, following Aegis’ sale to BPO firm CSP in 2017 in a deal valued at around US$291 million.
