Centrica Extends its Strategic Outsourcing Relationship with EXL
New York, NY / New Delhi. July 14, 2008 - ExlService Holdings, Inc. (“EXL”) (NASDAQ: EXLS), a leading provider of transformational outsourcing solutions, announced today the extension of its contract with Centrica under the terms of their existing master services agreement.
Centrica has extended its contract with EXL for an additional one year period based on the existing terms and conditions in the Master Services Agreement between the parties. Over the course of the coming year, Centrica and EXL intend to work towards a longer term contract renewal, shifting the outsourcing paradigm to focus on an outcome-based engagement model with enterprise-wide transformation as key drivers of value within the outsourcing relationship.
Mr. Ian Peters, Chief Operating Officer, British Gas Residential, stated: “We are pleased to continue our existing strong relationship with EXL as they assist in British Gas’s continued drive towards enterprise cost reduction through transformation and outsourcing. As the skill sets available from our outsourcing partner, EXL, continue to evolve, we expect that we will be able to leverage skills in analytics and process re-engineering to provide us a compelling advantage in the competitive utilities marketplace that British Gas serves.”
EXL’s Executive Chairman, Vikram Talwar stated: “We are proud to continue to serve Centrica in the execution of their goals for enterprise-wide transformation. As we strengthen our relationship, the potential exists for substantial value creation for both Centrica and EXL as we deliver on our mutual goals for enhanced efficiency, effectiveness, and control. We believe the future state model we are in the process of implementing will prove superior to the traditional input-based paradigm that exists in traditional outsourcing contracts today”.
