Ci&T Recognized on International Association of Outsourcing Professionals' Global Outsourcing 100

Brazilian Company Listed Among Top Outsourcers in the World for Third Consecutive Year

KING OF PRUSSIA, PA--(Marketwire - February 23, 2009) - Ci&T, a Brazilian consulting and technology outsourcing services company, has been named a Global Outsourcing 100™ outsource service provider by the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals (IAOP). This is the third year in a row that Ci&T has been honored with a place on this prestigious list of the 100 best outsourcing providers in the world.

The IAOP is considered an international benchmark in the research and development area of best practices by large corporations, providers and professional users of outsourcing as a management tool. The Global Outsourcing 100 list was announced last week at The Outsourcing World Summit 2009 in Carlsbad, Calif., and rankings will appear in a special advertising section of the May 4, 2009 edition of Fortune Magazine.

"At a time when companies that outsource are scrutinizing their suppliers more closely than ever to ensure they are delivering the high quality, value-added results being sought by customers, The Global Outsourcing 100 and The World's Best Outsourcing Advisors have become even more valuable reference tools for companies seeking to work with the best providers and advisors," said Michael Corbet, chairman, IAOP. "The companies named on these lists and sub lists have demonstrated their expertise following a rigorous, independently judged process and represent the tops in the industry."

In order to prepare its Global Outsourcing 100 report, IAOP conducts a meticulous evaluation process where independent consultants analyze the companies' ability to render global outsourcing services, according to these four criteria: company size and growth rate, corporate management, staff competency and client satisfaction.

"This is the third consecutive year that Ci&T has been recognized among the 100 best outsourcers in the world and we're sure that all of our collaborators, partners and clients are very proud," said Leonardo Mattiazzi, vice president of international business, Ci&T. "We believe this recognition is the result of our successful delivery of high-quality, value-added services to all of our global clients."

With a focus on partnering with companies to deliver both expertise and technology, Ci&T is the first and only Brazilian company to be named to the Global 100 Outsourcing list for three consecutive years. The company projects its 2009 U.S. sales will account for about 40 percent of its total business and that this will fuel the company's continued expansion in the U.S. and other geographic areas.
