Pune headquartered technology services company, Persistent Systems Ltd has acquired US-based startup Herald Technologies Inc., which operates under the name Herald Health, at an enterprise value of $5.2 million in cash.
The deal involves an upfront payment of $2.3 million to Herald's shareholders. The remaining $2.9 million is payable to management employees over a three-year period and depends on the performance and retention of those employees.
According to Persistent, the deal will strengthen its intellectual property-led offerings in the healthcare domain and create cross-sell opportunities.
