Wipro is scouting for acquisition of leading technology companies with new business model of the future and is evaluating a few candidates for large buyouts, a key company official said.

"We continue to be active in acquisitions," the Bangalore-based, New York Stock Exchange Limited company's Chief Financial Officer Suresh Senapaty told PTI in Bangalore.

"We are looking at acquisitions which can fill in some of the gaps that we have in our practices and our verticals and our geographies and/or in terms of technologies which are going to be technologies of Horizon 2 and Horizon 3 which means which will be some of value to us... new model of business going to be after two years and after five years," he said.

Senapaty indicated that Wipro's acquisitions, whenever they are made, would be large, saying the company generally avoided very small companies because "the impact is not going to be felt."

"We don't have (acquisition) size restrictions. But it has to fit from strategic point of view, it has to fit from cultural point of view and from financial strategy point of view," he added.
