Piramal Enterprises has agreed to acquire a majority stake in Health SuperHiway over the next 12 months, the company said in a statement.

As a part of the deal, Piramal has invested Rs 60 lakh in cash which will make it a minority shareholder in HealthHiway.

According to the company, it will be investing up to an additional Rs 44.2 crore in the next 33 months, if HealthHiway achieves a set of specified growth milestones that are based on acquisition of hospital data partnerships.
