End of the Road for Neoteric

Mounting losses lead the Mumbai-based ND to shut shop

Established in 1991, Neoteric infomatique, one of the country’s premier national value-added distributors, has recently decided to close down their all IT distribution operations in the Indian market. The IT ND who has been covering 50+ cities in India closed their all 35 branches across the country.

This Mumbai based IT distribution giant had revenues of close to Rs.2000 crore in FY15 and employed around 800 people. The services of the entire workforce were terminated as of June 30. Paras Harshad Shah, CEO, Neoteric Informatique who started as an IT dealer, has been working with 42 major brands including the likes of Lenovo, Gigabyte and D-Link.

Despite attempts to contact Neoteric officials, there were officially no comments from the company till the time of going to press. As per market sources, Neoteric has outstanding debt amounts of Rs. 200 crore with various vendors.  Due to huge margin losses in recent quarters, the company has decided to close their all businesses from the Indian market. Some ill-fated acquisitions in the recent past and juggling of business streams might also have contributed to Neoteric’s demise.

    Its a very strange matter that many IT distribution firms in India are closing their business , All these firms were doing million dollar business in the past and now in financial trouble is a matter of great concern. Neoteric brought many finest brands lineup into India and was doing a storm business in the past. Still dont know exactly why they faced financial loses in business, but same type business firms like Rashi, Compuage, iris etc are doing good business Now.Is its due to laser thin margins or any thing else. But the others still survives in the market.
