Infosys BPO Limited, the business process outsourcing subsidiary of Infosys Limited, today announced the signing of a definitive agreement to acquire all of the outstanding share capital in Australia-based Portland Group Pty Ltd, a leading provider of strategic sourcing and category management services.

The acquisition is expected to be completed by early January 2012, subject to certain closing conditions being met.

Portland Group was founded in 1999 and today counts several large ASX 200 organizations within the Australia region as clients. It is headquartered in Sydney and has offices in Melbourne, Brisbane, and Perth. The company reported revenue of approximately AUD 31.3 million for the fiscal year ending 30 June 2011. The company employs 113 professionals.

Swaminathan D, CEO and MD, Infosys BPO said,"We are delighted to have an outstanding team of domain specialists in Portland Group join us. This acquisition would significantly deepen our capabilities and domain expertise in our Sourcing and Procurement practice. Further in a dynamic marketplace such as Australasia this will strengthen the top-end of our service offering in the strategic sourcing and category management functions. This will also enhance the competitiveness, spread of offerings and global reach for our clients."

Gavin Solsky, CEO of Portland Group Pty Ltd said,"We believe the combination of Portland Group and Infosys will provide our clients with a highly compelling proposition that does not currently exist in the sourcing and procurement services market in Australia. It will allow us to offer our clients a truly integrated and globally competitive solution to deliver procurement benefits in the most effective and efficient way possible."

Portland Group's expertise in strategic sourcing and category management services is expected to complement Infosys BPO's global Sourcing & Procurement capabilities to create a market offering that will positively impact client's business efficiency and effectiveness.

The purchase consideration for the deal is AUD 37 million, subject to customary post-completion adjustments.
