All about the IPO
The founder and chairman of AGS Transact Technologies, Ravi Goyal, began his entrepreneurial journey in 1997 by starting a colour matching dispenser company.
He recollects that in 2002, people used to call them the ‘king of dispensing systems’. This led him to think that if they’re not dispensing cash, they really cannot be the dispensing kings. And so, AGS Transact Technologies forayed into the finance industry.
Since then, the company has come a long way. Today, AGS Transact Technologies is India’s second largest company for ATM managed services. The company has installed, maintained or managed a network of approximately 72,000 ATMs and CRMs.
Its operations cover approximately 2,200 cities and towns, including retail and corporate outlets and oil marketing companies. The company’s three business verticals are payments solutions, banking automation solutions and other automation solutions (for petroleum and colour industry).
