The Mindtree and L&T saga has finally come to an end with co-founders of the former set to step down as board members effective July 17.
Mindtree shareholders have approved the appointment of new board members from L&T with an absolute majority of 98-99 percent.
SN Subrahmanyan, R Shankar Raman and Jayant Damodar Patil are now non-executive chairmen on the Mindtree board. The shareholders have also approved a total dividend of Rs 27 proposed by Mindtree for FY19.
Investors Moneycontrol spoke to see the takeover in the positive light and believe Mindtree could benefit from L&T as its parent.
Only about two percent of investors were against the appointment of Subrahmanyan (CEO of L&T) and Shankar Raman (CFO of L&T) as board members.
What investors expect from the Mindtree board meeting on July 17
