IAOP® Selects IBA Group for the 2014 Global Outsourcing 100 in Leaders Category

February 20, 2014

PRAGUE, February 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ –

On February, 17, 2014, the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals(R)
(IAOP(R)) revealed The 2014 Global Outsourcing 100
[http://www.iaop.org/Download/Default.aspx?ID=2401 ] and The World’s Best Outsourcing
Advisors lists. IBA Group, an alliance of IT companies with more than 2,500 people, was
named among the Global Outsourcing 100 companies.

The company names in the published 2014 Global Outsourcing 100 list are sorted
alphabetically and no rankings are provided. The 2014 Global Outsourcing 100 with rankings
will be published in the special advertising feature in the June 16 Fortune 500 issue of
FORTUNE(R) magazine.

IAOP compiled its annual ranking of the world’s best outsourcing service providers and
advisors for the eighth consecutive year. The Global Outsourcing 100 and its sub-lists are
essential references for organizations seeking new and expanded relationships with the
best companies in the industry. The lists include companies from around the world
providing the full spectrum of outsourcing services – not just information technology and
business process outsourcing, but also facility services, real estate and capital asset
management, manufacturing and logistics.

The Global Outsourcing 100 for service providers is composed of both today’s known
leaders and tomorrow’s rising stars. The judging category of Leader or Rising Star is
based on size criteria, which is a combination of yearly revenue and employee numbers set
by the judging panel. The groups are judged separately. The final ranked list is composed
of the top 75 Leaders and top 25 Rising Stars.

The application process mirrors the customers’ request for proposal (RFP) process in
many ways. The application is composed of three required parts: Company Information,
Company Profile and Evaluation Criteria. The first asks for basic contact and company
information. The second allows companies to select their top services provided, industries
served and regions where they provide services. These answers are used to qualify them for
sub lists. The third part includes numerous questions broken into four sections – Size and
Growth, Customer Satisfaction, Depth of Competence and Management Capabilities.

“At a time when there is a growing need to outsource, The Global Outsourcing 100 and
The World’s Best Outsourcing Advisors lists have become invaluable reference tools to help
companies research service providers,” said Debi Hamill, IAOP CEO. “The companies named on
these lists and sub lists have demonstrated their expertise following a rigorous,
independently judged process and represent the top in the industry.”

“Each year the competition to be named to The Global Outsourcing 100 and The World’s
Best Outsourcing Advisors lists continues to reach higher levels,” said Jagdish Dalal,
Chief Advisor, Thought Leadership, IAOP and Chairman of the judges’ panel. “Given the
strong competition, getting named to these lists is a great recognition and these
companies should be proud of achieving excellence in the field.”

“IAOP is continuously striving to make The Global Outsourcing 100 and World’s Best
Outsourcing Advisors lists important resource tools in the outsourcing decision-making
process,” said Michael Corbett, IAOP Chairman. “With developing economies expected to see
high growth and the global economy accelerating in 2014, choosing the right outsourcing
partners will be more important than ever.”

IBA Group was also selected for The Global Outsourcing 100 in the Leaders category and
recognized in numerous sub-lists in 2013, 2011, 2010, 2008 and 2006.
