Dépèche transmise le 7 juillet 2009 par PRNewswire

NEW YORK, July 7 /PRNewswire/ -- ExlService Holdings, Inc. ("EXL") , a leading provider of outsourcing and transformation services, announced today that it has signed a multi-year outsourcing agreement with Schneider Logistics, a global leader in logistics and transportation services.

As part of the transaction, EXL has acquired the operations of Schneider Logistics, SRO in Olomouc, Czech Republic with effect from July 3, 2009. The facility currently provides complex transaction processing services to Schneider and its clients in Europe and the U.S. and has approximately 200 highly skilled employees that will transfer to EXL as part of the transaction. Through its delivery center in Olomouc, EXL will have access to a uniquely qualified talent pool with strong multi-lingual capabilities supported by a world-class university system. The Czech Republic presents significant growth potential enabling EXL clients to leverage the labor pool in the Czech Republic to expand and diversify their outsourcing operations. The Olomouc facility will serve as EXL's third outsourcing service delivery location outside of India and The Philippines and is an important step in EXL's strategy of providing seamless global delivery to its clients from countries around the world.

"As we operate the business, we are always looking for opportunities to be more efficient and effective," said Jack Gross, Senior Vice President, International, Schneider Logistics. "This agreement positions us to continue to provide customers with excellent service while maintaining a competitive, low-cost position in the marketplace." According to Mr. Gross, the new relationship means Schneider Logistics customers will realize greater efficiencies in their business processes, including European freight audit and payment, logistics engineering, carrier contracting and brokerage business. As part of EXL, Mr. Gross observed, Olomouc-based associates will contribute their transportation and logistics expertise while benefiting from EXL's unique competencies in outsourcing solutions. The Olomouc business also will benefit from a strong cultural fit and EXL's intent to build their presence in Europe. "In evaluating this transaction we looked for a company with a stellar reputation, similar core values and a track record of success for associates, customers and the business. EXL meets all those criteria," Mr. Gross noted.

Vikram Talwar, EXL's Executive Chairman, stated: "Our relationship with Schneider Logistics is aligned with our stated objective of focusing on select industry verticals in which we can pair our domain and process expertise with our transformational capabilities to deliver value to our clients. This win represents EXL's third client in the transportation vertical. Our continued growth in transportation complements our strong position in the insurance, utilities, and banking verticals and we expect to continue to invest in industry domain and functional expertise to benefit our clients."

Rohit Kapoor, EXL's President and CEO, stated: "Our entry into Europe marks an important strategic achievement for EXL. We continue to grow in a highly focused manner and believe that we are among the most well positioned outsourcing service providers in terms of our financial strength and operational discipline. Despite the difficult economic environment, we continue to invest in expanding our range of transformation and outsourcing capabilities on a global basis for long-term growth."

Elaborating further, Mr. Kapoor added: "In evaluating our investment options, we give the topmost priority to the current and future growth requirements of our clients. We believe our expansion into Europe will benefit our clients by providing enhanced capabilities in finance and accounting as well as value-added multi-lingual capabilities. This decision will also enable us to provide near-shore business process outsourcing solutions to our European clients. Accordingly, we consider this as an opportunity to better serve our customers by bringing together the best-in-class capabilities from across the globe. And will continue our endeavor to Go Next. Now."

With the acquisition of Schneider Logistics, SRO in the Czech Republic, EXL will have twelve world-class delivery sites located across India, The Philippines and the Czech Republic. EXL is headquartered in New York and has offices in New Jersey, London and Singapore.
