Explaining the rationale behind the merger, Rajiv Hiranandani, co-founder said, "Over the past few years, we have been involved in SMS, VAS and mobile marketing services but not voice. We had two options, either to create our own entity in that space or merge with an existing player in the same space. Altruist is a voice player but doesn't have SMS services. The merger mainly happened for both companies to complement each other. They can use SMS services from our stable and we can use voice from theirs."
