Subsidiaries Formerly Known as Regulus Group and J&B Software to Operate as Single, Standalone Company

NEW YORK, NY and ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - Jun 30, 2011) - Today an affiliate of Cerberus Capital Management, L.P. ("Cerberus"), one of the world's leading private investment firms, completed its acquisition of 3i Infotech Limited's (NSE: 3IINFOTEC) US-based Global Billing & Payments unit. The acquired unit, consisting of the subsidiaries formerly known as Regulus Group and J&B Software, has become a standalone Cerberus portfolio company effective today. Under Cerberus' ownership, the new company will retain the 3i Infotech corporate name until a new corporate name is introduced.

Cerberus announced in May that it was acquiring the Global Billing & Payments unit from 3i Infotech. 3i Infotech acquired J&B Software in 2007 and Regulus Group in 2008. The companies were integrated to form the Global Billing & Payments unit of 3i Infotech.

Lynn Boggs has been named Chief Executive Officer of the new company. Boggs brings extensive experience in the financial services industry and a long history of running successful payments organizations to the new enterprise. Boggs previously served as CEO of Goldleaf Financial Solutions, Inc., which was formed in 2005 by merging with Captiva Solutions, LLC, a company Boggs founded and also served as CEO. Goldleaf was acquired by Jack Henry & Associates, Inc. in 2009. Before founding Captiva, Boggs served as President and COO of InterCept, Inc., a payments, core processing, and EFT company sold to Fidelity National Information Services, Inc. in 2004.

"I'm excited to be joining such a dynamic company," said Lynn Boggs, Chief Executive Officer. "As a standalone entity, we are perfectly positioned to expand our service and solution offerings and drive innovation in the billing and payments space. I look forward to working with the company's management team and employees to deliver excellence to clients around the globe."
