The group of investors is led by private equity firms Capital Square Partners (CSP) and CX Partners (CXP), the company said in a statement on Friday, adding the deal is expected to be closed in two to three months.

Minacs posted sales of $450 million and a net profit of $23 million in the fiscal year ended March 31, 2013. The company employs 21,000 people across 35 centres in 10 countries, the company said in a statement.
