WNS eyes two small acquisitions

India-headquartered global business process outsourcing (BPO) firm WNS is looking at potentially one or two small acquisitions to build more capacity. This was announced by WNS Global Services Group CEO Keshav R Murugesh in an interview with The Hindu newspaper. Murugesh said the acquisitions will not be to build the size and scale of the BPO firm, but to build more capability. Potentially, he said WNS is looking to make acquisitions in areas like insurance processing, procurement, actuarial services, and finance and accounting. As of June 2016, WNS had more than 32,000 professionals across 42 delivery centers worldwide, including in the Philippines. WNS has been focusing on delivering organic growth for the past 5-6 years, Murugesh said.
