Luxoft Announces Launch of Delivery Center in Latin America

Luxoft Holding, Inc (NYSE:LXFT US), a leading provider of software development services and innovative IT solutions to a global client base, today announced its plans to launch a new delivery center in Guadalajara, Mexico. An office in Guadalajara will become Luxoft’s 22nd location, 17th delivery center, and thereby expands the Company’s presence to 14 countries around the globe.

The Guadalajara office will be supporting all six business lines: Financial Services, Automotive, Travel & Aviation, Telecom, Technology and Energy by delivering services and solutions, with a focus on clients in North America. Luxoft plans for this location to be fully operational by September 1, 2014 and expects to grow the delivery headcount up to 100 employees within the first year.

“One aspect of Luxoft’s value proposition has been effective nearshore delivery within Europe, more specifically within Western Europe. Our presence in Latin America now should allow us to effectively operate a nearshore model for our clients and potential clients in North America,” said Luxoft’s Vice President for Global Delivery, Dmitry Kushnir. “Opening of this office in Guadalajara is consistent with our Global Upgrade Program and goals of expanding our global delivery network and obtaining more even distribution of talent across our key geographies.”

We believe Guadalajara has proved itself as a viable IT destination. Leading global players, such as HP, IBM, Oracle, and other leading multinationals have operations in the Guadalajara. We also believe Guadalajara is not only a hub for local talent, but serves as a hub for all of Latin America due to its strong infrastructure and security, well-developed industrial parks, and an overall attractive climate and atmosphere.

Labor market in Mexico is expected to offer Luxoft a pool of over 90,000 technical graduates, including 6,000 engineering graduates and 2,000 IT-related graduates per year in Guadalajara. The Mexican government continues to support and sponsor programs targeted at graduate students studying electronics and computer science, most notably through the Center for Post-Graduate Studies.

“We are very excited about this expansion, Latin America is a brand new region for us and it further expands our global footprint. It also significantly diversifies our offering of nearshore locations for our global clients, who place utmost importance on convenience and the logistics of delivery,” said Luxoft President and CEO, Dmitry Loschinin. “Our delivery network will now span across more than half of the globe from Ho Chi Minh City to Stuttgart to New York and soon from Guadalajara. We hope it will provide a solid support for Luxoft’s continued growth and performance excellence.”
