It also reports that a merchant bank has been appointed for the sale and there are two potential buyers, although no formal announcement has been made with regards to bids or expression of interest.

The company, earlier known as Bharti Telesoft was rebranded Comviva in 2009. As of March 2009, Bharti Enterprises owned 75.03% in the company. The stake increased after the company’s Vice chairman, Sanjiv Mittal sold a large proportion of his shares (7.87% ordinary plus an undisclosed percentage of preferential shares) to Bharti and Sequoia Capital, which is also an existing investor in the company.
