^ Sonata Software North America Inc., (SSNA) a wholly owned subsidiary of Sonata Software Limited, acquired 100% stake in the Quant systems inc., (Quant) on March 10, 2023 for a purchase consideration of USD 159 mn (INR 130,348 Lakhs) (net of working capital) including cash consideration of USD 70.70 mn (INR 57,960 Lakhs) and USD 88.30 mn (INR 72,388 Lakhs) of contingent consideration payable over 2 years. The Company has re-measured the fair value of the contingent consideration payable to be USD 105.42 mn (INR 87,719 Lakhs), thereby an increase of USD 17.12 mn (INR 14,244 Lakhs). Similarly, the Company has re-measured the fair value of the contingent consideration payable with respect to an earlier acquisition, which has resulted in the change in fair value by USD 3.87 mn (INR 3,222 Lakhs). The above changes in fair value of contingent consideration payable amounting to USD 20.99 mn (INR 17,466 Lakhs) are owing to better financial performance of the acquired entities and are recorded in the Statement of Profit and Loss. The Management has disclosed the above changes in fair value as an ‘exceptional item’, considering the significance of the amount and its non-recurring nature.
