Just been talking to a contact of mine and he told me that one of the big Indian IT suppliers has tabled a bid to buy logica.

HCL acquired SAP service provider Axon for £441m in August 2008 but a takeover of Logica by an Indian supplier would be a much bigger deal. Last year Logica had about 40,000 employees and revenue of £3.7bn.
A senior Indian IT executive said that the likes of Logica, Steria and Capita as well as other similar companies have been targets for some time.
