Global Outsourcing Powerhouse is Silver Sponsor of ROSS 2006

New York City, May 10, 2006 - On the heels of acquiring New York City-based ITCI,  Luxoft - Russia’s leading provider of end-to-end information technology services and solutions -- continues to reinforce its commitment to the global outsourcing industry and business community by sponsoring and speaking at key events in the U.S. and abroad.

On May 11, 2006 Lilia Tsalalikhin, Luxoft’s Vice President of Strategy, will address U.S. and international executives at the  Russian-American Chamber of Commerce on the challenges and opportunities of branding and marketing a Russian Company in the U.S. The event entitled “Sophisticated Business Challenges” will take place in New York City, the new home of Luxoft USA’s headquarters.

Later in the month in Moscow, Luxoft will once again play a key role at ROSS 2006 (Russian Software & Outsourcing Summit) as a Silver Sponsor and speaker. Scheduled from May 31 through June 2, ROSS 2006 will bring together over 500 attendees across corporate, vendor, government, and influencer audiences to share ideas, best practices and opportunities for the Russian software and services outsourcing market which is estimated at $1 billion and growing.

As Chairman of RUSSOFT (The Russian Software Developers Association), which is organizing and hosting ROSS, Dmitry Loschinin, President and CEO of Luxoft, will open up the conference with an address on industry achievements over the past year and insights into where Russian outsourcing is headed next. Luxoft will also sponsor a panel on the legal and compliance considerations for Russian and international outsourcing engagements, and Loschinin will participate in a panel on Offshore Development Centers - sharing Luxoft’s experience in successfully running centers for clients like Deutsche Bank, Boeing, and others.

“This year’s ROSS marks the fifth anniversary of this dynamic event,” said Loschinin. “It’s very exciting to see the momentum that has been built for our market so quickly - with global business leaders now considering Russia and Eastern Europe a top IT outsourcing destination. I look forward to gathering with colleagues and clients at ROSS 2006 to discuss where our growing industry and Luxoft are headed in the next half-decade.”
