Confirming the development, an official statement from Micromax states, "Micromax and Lowe Lintas had a wonderful relationship and this mutually beneficial partnership has helped Micromax to become a leading brand in India, with a differentiated and strong equity with consumers. As we reviewed the way forward, we understood that we have differences in our vision for the brand and the category, and therefore, agreed to part ways at this juncture."
