Luxoft - #1 European ITO Leader in the 2009 “Global Services 100” ranking of most innovative technology services companies

New York & Moscow, Feb. 27th, 2009 – Luxoft, a global provider of high-end application and product development services, has been awarded the #1 position in the “Emerging European Markets” category of the 2009 “Global Services 100” list. In addition, Luxoft was named #3 in the “Outsourced Product Development” category. This is company’s fifth consecutive year on the list of world’s most innovative technology service companies.

Conducted by Global Services magazine and consulting firm neoIT, Global Services 100 study honors global companies that demonstrate leadership, innovation and outstanding performance in information technology outsourcing (ITO). Service provider evaluation criteria include company’s size, customer relations, technical and vertical expertise, HR practices, and others. Over the course of its existence, the Global Services 100 program has become a reliable snapshot of the outsourcing industry landscape, providing invaluable information to ITO and BPO buyer community on leading service providers in each area.

“Being recognized as a leader in our geography as well as in product outsourcing business domain is a true testament to Luxoft’s continual maturation and our laser focus on developing vertical expertise,” said Dmitry Loschinin, President and CEO of Luxoft. “We look forward to serving the global services industry for many years to come while continuing to pursue dynamic growth and global expansion.”

For Luxoft, the past year has been a year of significant milestones. The company was the first Eastern European software service provider to go global by opening a delivery center in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Luxoft’s global footprint was further strengthened later in the year when it acquired ITC Networks, a leading Romanian IT player with strong telecom expertise.

In 2008 Luxoft’s business domain excellence was underscored by inclusion in American Banker’s and Financial Insights’ “FinTech 100” list, which identifies top global vertical technology vendors serving the financial services industry. Company also received the National outsourcing Association’s Telecommunications Outsourcing Project of the Year for its groundbreaking work with its product development client, Aepona.
