Ness Technologies Inc

Ness Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: NSTC), a global provider of IT services and solutions, today announced that it has signed a share purchase agreement to acquire 100% of the shares of Logos a.s., a privately-held, Czech-based leading IT services and consulting company. For the fiscal year ended March 31, 2008, Logos generated revenues of EUR29.7 million and was profitable. Logos has approximately 570 employees.

Logos has been one of the fastest growing IT services and solutions providers in the Czech Republic. With a strong presence in the Czech financial and telecom sectors, Logos provides a variety of IT services including consulting, custom software development, testing and quality assurance, information systems analysis, outsourcing and staffing. Upon completion of the acquisition, Logos will be merged into Ness Czech.

"The acquisition of Logos strengthens our already significant leadership position in Central and Eastern Europe, one of our fastest growing and most profitable geographies," said Sachi Gerlitz, president and CEO of Ness Technologies. "Coupled with our very strong organic growth in the region, this deal positions us for greater penetration of this strategic market."

Logos complements the Ness service portfolio, with little overlap in services and customers. Ness Czech's strong position in the utilities, manufacturing and public sectors will be complemented by Logos' strong presence in the financial and telecom industries. On the technology side, the combined company will offer deep expertise and experienced teams in leading technologies, including Microsoft, SAP, Oracle, Documentum and IBM. By combining offerings, the merged Ness Czech will be able to provide its clients with an even broader range of services - within the Czech IT services market itself as well as across the Central and Eastern European IT services market. Logos' clients will also benefit from Ness' near-shore and offshore capabilities, including its software product development center in Kosice, Slovakia.

"We are delighted to join Ness Technologies and to become the major leader in the Czech IT services market," said Pavel Stovicek, chairman of the board of directors of Logos. "Together, we will continue in an approach based on very deep understanding of customers' needs. Our highly skilled team of consulting and IT professionals will join Ness Czech specialists, creating large multi-disciplinary teams that will provide best-of-breed services based on our combined experience in business and technology."

"We are pleased by the planned merger," said Mr. Vaclav Grepl, CIO of Komercni Banka, a member of Societe Generale Group. "We work successfully with both Ness Czech and Logos today as major vendors for application development, and we believe that we will benefit from the acquisition in several ways: through a broader technology portfolio, increased flexibility, the ability to handle larger engagements and also in more strategic positioning within our organization."

Logos' customer list includes prominent companies and organizations such as: Komercni Banka (a member of Societe Generale Group), GE Money, Raiffeiensen Bank, Ceska Sporitelna (a member of Erste Bank), CSOB (a member of the KBC Group), Telefonica 02, T-Mobile, DHL, Skoda Auto (part of the Volkswagen Group) and many others.

The acquisition, which is subject to customary closing conditions, is expected to close early in the fourth quarter of 2008. The acquisition is also subject to approval by the Czech Office for the Protection of Competition.
