Sudha Natrajan, president and chief operating officer, LMG, says, "Intex has focused on having a strong base in place. It has a solid foundation on the strength of which its growth story resides. To help it achieve its aggressive targets in today's multi-dimensional market, LMG will partner it in the most complementary manner."

She adds that Intex Technology has built the infrastructure bottom-up, "first focusing on the smaller cities and then moving towards big metros, while all the other companies in this field are going the other way round. Its approach is different".

LMG plans to use media innovatively and according to Natrajan, the media mix will be different from others; the layering of media will begin with semi-urban cities and then move towards bigger cities.

This 14 year old company has its businesses spanning across segments such as computer peripherals, personal computers, mobile phones, consumer electronics, memory products, retail, enterprise and international business.

In an official communiqué, Kavita Sharma, associate vice-president, LMG, says, "Intex operates in some of the very advertising-intense categories such as mobile phones and consumer electronics. We are looking forward to working with it to craft impactful media solutions."
