KPIT Technologies Ltd., previously known as KPIT Engineering Ltd., listed its automotive engineering and mobility solutions business today as part of a three-step deal involving a merger and then a demerger with CK Birla Group’s Birlasoft Ltd.

The company, which started trading at Rs 100 apiece on the Bombay Stock Exchange, rose 5 percent through the trading hours to close at an intraday high of Rs 105 per share.

Auto industry is at a cusp of a major technology change. We believe we can be the leaders in that space.
