Virtusa Corporation (NASDAQ GS: VRTU), a global IT services company that combines innovation, technology leadership and industry solutions to transform the customer experience, today announced that it has acquired all the outstanding shares of TradeTech Consulting Scandinavia AB and its subsidiaries ("TradeTech"), headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden.

TradeTech is a leading consulting and IT services provider specializing in treasury and asset management for major financial institutions and multi-national corporations, primarily in the Nordic countries.

The acquisition expands Virtusa's leading position within the banking, financial services and insurance industries by increasing its asset management and treasury services domain and technology expertise. With 60 team members, TradeTech's core strengths include technology consulting, regulatory & compliance, implementation of global asset management and treasury platforms, as well as managed services. With the addition of TradeTech, Virtusa plans to leverage these complementary capabilities across its global client base, enabling Virtusa to offer a broader set of services to existing and new clients.

TradeTech expects to immediately extend Virtusa's presence within Europe, expanding Virtusa's global footprint into the Nordics, a large and growing IT services market primed for increasing its use of outsourcing. TradeTech clients will continue to benefit from local operational support and now will have access to Virtusa's global delivery model and broader services capabilities.

Kris Canekeratne, chairman and CEO of Virtusa, stated, "We are pleased to welcome Joakim Wiener, the TradeTech team members, and their clients to Virtusa. The complementary expertise that TradeTech delivers will help increase our total addressable market and provide our combined client base with expanded service offerings. In addition, this acquisition is an important step in establishing Virtusa in the Nordic countries and providing a broad set of best-in-class consulting and outsourcing service to this region."

Joakim Wiener, CEO of TradeTech, stated, "We are pleased to join the Virtusa team and believe this is a tremendous opportunity to extend our services globally. We share a common culture based on a commitment to innovation and service excellence thatt will help our combined clients accelerate their business outcomes."

TradeTech was advised by Incepto, a Nordic-based corporate finance advisory firm specializing in M&A transactions.
