The deal value includes both upfront and deferred payments to be made over five years, NIIT said in a stock-exchange disclosure.

Incorporated in 1988, Eagle provides technology training and work-process consulting services to clients. IT has offices in New York and at Malaga, Spain. Its consolidated revenue was $10.7 million in 2017.

Established in 1981, NIIT offers technology and computer training courses to individuals, enterprises and various institutions. It has three main lines of business – corporate learning group, skills and careers group, and school learning group.
