GE exits Riyadh all-women BPO; TCS takes full control

GE is set to exit its all-women business process outsourcing firm that is a partnership with IT consulting company TCS, making the latter take full ownership of the Riyadh-based BPO provider.

Since TCS already holds a 76 per cent stake compared to GE’s 24 per cent, just over $12,000 has been agreed for complete ownership of the center, which makes up TCS’ entire delivery capability in Saudi Arabia.
