It is also registered as a 100 per cent export-oriented unit (EOU) under the software technology park scheme for developing computer software.

The NRI investor will take over 9,23,078 equity shares of Rs 10 each held by 11 resident Indians at cost of Rs 20 per share with non-repatriation benefits.

The company has an authorised equity capital of Rs 9 crore and authorised preferential equity of Rs 21 crore. The company's subscribed equity capital is Rs 4.23 crore which is also the company's paid-up capital.
