Stocks in this article: EBIX

ATLANTA, Aug. 27, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ebix, Inc. (Nasdaq:EBIX), a leading international supplier of On-Demand software and E-commerce services to the insurance industry, today announced that it has signed an agreement to purchase two new buildings in India, to support its continued growth and associated increased need for offshore development and BPO resources. With this, Ebix will own 5 buildings in India, since it already owns three buildings in Noida, India.

The Company announced that this decision was made to allow Ebix to double its staff capacity in India over the next few years. The purchase of these two buildings will allow Ebix to have a large office campus over an area of 4000 square meters since four of these buildings are adjoining each other. Ebix presently employs in excess of 1100 employees in India, with its core development operations being awarded the coveted Level 5 Quality status of the Carnegie Mellon Software Engineering Institute's Capability Maturity Model (CMM).

All software development work undertaken in these two new buildings is likely to be 100% tax-exempt until the year 2017/2018, under the Software Export Zone (SEZ) Act of the Govt. of India, after which the Company is likely to be entitled to a 50% tax-free status in India until 2022/2023.
