The company listed on the New York Stock Exchange, National Stock Exchange (India) and Bombay Stock Exchange (India). In June 2009, the company unveiled its new brand identity “Mahindra Satyam”.

Satyam plunged into a crisis in January 2009 after its founder, B Ramalinga Raju, stated that the company's profits had been overstated. Satyam had engaged PricewaterhouseCoopers as its auditors over past 10 years. The company's accounts are currently being restated. In March 2009 the company announced it would begin soliciting bids from potential buyers.[2]In April 2009, Venturebay Consultants Private Limited, a subsidiary controlled by Tech Mahindra emerged as the highest bidder to acquire a controlling stake in Satyam. A US-based investment firm owned by billionaire Wilbur Ross and an Indian construction and IT services firm, Larsen and Toubro were the other bidders.

[edit] Controversies
[edit] Maytas acquisition
In 2008, Satyam attempted to acquire (Maytas Infrastructure and Maytas Properties) founded by family relations of company founder Ramalinga Raju for $1.6 billion, despite concerns raised by independent board directors.[3] Both companies are owned by Raju's sons. This eventually led to a review of the deal by the government[4], a veiled criticism by the vice president of India[5] and Satyam's clients re-evaluating their relationship with the company[6]. Satyam's investors lost about INR 3,400 crore in the related panic selling. The USD $1.6 billion (INR 8,000 crore) acquisition was met with skepticism as Satyam's shares fell 55% on the New York Stock Exchange.[7] Three members of the board of directors resigned on 29th December 2008.[8]

[edit] World Bank
The World Bank had banned Satyam from doing business with it for 8 years due to inappropriate payments to the World Bank's staff.[9] The World Bank accused Satyam of giving improper benefits to its (the Bank's) staff and of failing to maintain documentation to support fees charged for its subcontractors. However, it clarified that Satyam was not involved in incidences of data theft or malicious attacks that had been made on the Bank's information systems. [10]

[edit] Upaid lawsuit
UK mobile payments company Upaid Systems is suing Satyam for over 1 billion US dollars on complaints of fraud, forgery and breach of contract.[11]. The matter is still sub-judice and the company has stated that it will defend in accordance with U.S procedures[12].

[edit] Accounting scandal of 2009
