Ebix to acquire Indian inward remittance provider

EbixCash World Money Ltd., an India-based subsidiary of Ebix Inc., agreed to acquire a 74.84% stake in India-based foreign exchange and outward remittances provider Weizmann Forex Ltd.

The transaction values Weizmann Forex at $65.9 million, net of $17.5 million of cash remaining in the business.

EbixCash World Money will fund the acquisition in cash.
