In 2008, Satyam attempted to acquire Maytas Infrastructure and Maytas Properties, founded by family relations of company founder Ramalinga Raju (Maytas is "Satyam" reversed) for $1.6 billion, despite concerns raised by independent board directors. Both companies are owned by Raju's sons. This eventually led to a review of the deal by the government, a veiled criticism by the vice president of India and Satyam's clients re-evaluating their relationship with the company. Satyam's investors lost about 3,400 crore in the related panic selling. The USD $1.6 billion ( 8,000 crore) acquisition was met with skepticism as Satyam's shares fell 55% on the New York Stock Exchange.
