Vishal proposes to utilize the net proceeds of the Issue to part finance the cost of the proposed expansion of the facilities in Chennai and the cost of setting up of Quality Assurance Center and Marketing office in Mumbai. The expansion includes increasing Data digitalization seats from present 250 to 450, E-publishing seats from 150 to 250 and Digital Library seats from 75 to 100. The issue proceeds would also be utilized for setting up of subsidiaries in UK and USA.

Presently the Company operates from leased facilities in Chennai and Mumbai with approximately 475 workstations. As part of the expansion plans, the Company intends to set up new facilities to support the increase in business from existing and new clients. It proposes to buy an office space of approximately 15,000 sq. ft. at Special Economic Zone (SEZ) in Chennai.

Majority of the Company’s business is predominantly sourced from the United Kingdom and United States of America through tenders floated by the various government authorities, educational institutes, etc. Presently it does not have any presence in the UK and USA which many a times acts as hindrance for getting the work allotted. It feels that its offshore presence in the form of a subsidiary company would enable Vishal’s participation in the bidding process more active and fruitful. The various other marketing activities for Vishal would also be carried out from these subsidiaries.
