Wipro Ltd. Says It Will Defend $140 Million Lawsuit From National Grid US

India-based technology services company Wipro Ltd. (WIT) said Friday that it will vigorously contest a lawsuit filed by National Grid US seeking damages of $140 million, plus additional costs, in relation to a project dating back to 2009.

Wipro said it believed that allegations made by National Grid US--the American arm of the U.K.'s National Grid PLC (NG.LN)--were baseless and accused the company of misstating facts.

The technology services company said that it had provided services with skill and care, adding that it had received a reward relating to the project in 2014.

Wipro said that any financial implication of the lawsuit, which was filed in New York, will depend on the final judgment.
