This is Havas's second acquisition in India after Think Design, which they acquired earlier this year.

Vishnu Mohan, chairman and chief executive of Havas at India and South East Asia said: “The acquisition will reinforce our integrated offering and digital expertise in India and complement our existing capabilities. I am delighted to welcome Langoor to the Havas family.”

Ruchir Punjabi and Venu Ganganna, co-founders of Langoor in a joint statement said: “We pride ourselves in having created an agency focused on digital brand thinking – which is the future. The integration within Havas Group will add scale to the depth of our services and help us to grow even further. This acquisition is an incredible opportunity for Langoor and the team and we are excited to be part of this new journey towards further success."

The acquisition is part of the company’s ‘Together’ strategy which seeks to intensify integration for clients after merging its creative and media under one regional P&L.
