PRAGUE, May 18, 2011 - The International Association of Outsourcing Professionals(R) (IAOP(R))
published The Global Outsourcing 100(R), the listing of the world's top
outsourcing service providers in a special advertising feature of the May 23,
issue of FORTUNE(R) magazine. IBA Group, one of the largest IT companies
in Eastern Europe, ranks in the Leaders Category of the listing and is
recognized in numerous sub-lists.

On May 9, the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals(R)
(IAOP(R)) unveiled the rankings and sub-lists of The 2011 Global Outsourcing
100(R) program, recognizing the world's best outsourcing service providers.

The list includes companies from around the world that provide the full
spectrum of outsourcing services - not just information technology and
business process outsourcing, but also facility services, real estate and
capital asset management, and manufacturing and logistics. They include not
only today's leaders, but tomorrow's rising stars.

According to The 2011 Global Outsourcing 100(R) Application Processes and
Scoring Methodology, revenue is one factor to rank companies, but it is not
the dominant factor. Participating companies were required to demonstrate
excellence in categories such as size and growth, global presence, industry
recognition, certifications, customer references, employee management,
executive strength, and outsourcing experience.

According to Michael Corbett, IAOP Chairman and chair of the judges'
panel, "revenue data supplied by applicants for the Global Outsourcing 100
shows the size and strength of the outsourcing industry. Outsourcing is
enjoying strong growth and companies are outsourcing more of their operations
than ever before".

IBA Group ranks #59 in the Leaders Category and is recognized among the
Best 10 Companies by Region Served - Eastern Europe; Best 20 Leaders by
Industry Focus - Technology (Hardware and Software); Best 20 Leaders by
Industry Focus - Discrete Manufacturing, Best 10 Companies by Service
Provided - Document Management, and Best 20 Companies by Service Provided -
Research & Development. IBA Group received the highest scorings for customer
references, company certifications, employee management, and executive
leadership, and balanced performance is identified as its key strength.

Sergei Levteev, IBA Group CEO, commented: "We are proud to be one of the
Leaders of The Global Outsourcing 100 and to be honored for balanced
performance. IBA has been showing reliable productivity, stable customer
relations, and effective company management for years. IBA Group-among
