iGATE Computer Systems Limited Announces Intention to Delist From the NYSE

MUMBAI, India, Sept. 7, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- iGATE Computer Systems
Limited (f/k/a Patni Computer Systems Limited) (the "Company"), a wholly owned
subsidiary of iGATE Corporation (Nasdaq:IGTE), the first integrated technology
and operation company providing Business Outcomes based solutions, today
publicly announced its intention to apply for the voluntarily delisting of its
American Depositary Shares ("ADSs") from the New York Stock Exchange (the
"NYSE") on September 28, 2012. On August 31, 2012, a notice announcing the
delisting of the ADSs from the NYSE was distributed to holders of ADSs as
required by a deposit agreement dated December 7, 2005 by and between the
Company and The Bank of New York Mellon, as Depositary.On September 18, 2012,
the Company intends to file a Form 25 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission (the "Commission") and it is expected that the last day of trading
on the NYSE will be Friday, September 28, 2012. Then, the ADSs will transition
to "level one status" and will be tradable on the U.S. over-the-counter market
beginning on Monday, October 1, 2012.

Since listing its ADSs on the NYSE in 2005, the Company has complied with the
disclosure requirements of U.S. securities laws and regulations and made
efforts to enhance voluntary disclosures to assist U.S. shareholders and
investors deepen their understanding of the Company. Meanwhile, on May 11,
2011, iGATE Corporation through its subsidiaries ("iGATE") completed the
acquisition of approximately 83% of the outstanding shares in the Company and
on March 14, 2012 commenced a delisting offer in India to (a) acquire all the
remaining issued and outstanding equity shares, par value of Rs. 2 (the
"Shares" or the "Common Stock") of its majority-owned subsidiary, the Company
and (b) delist the shares from the Bombay Stock Exchange Ltd and the National
Stock Exchange of India Limited (clauses (a) and (b), collectively, the
"Delisting Offer").In connection with the Delisting Offer, the Company opened
a subsequent offering period through May 27, 2013, pursuant to which holders
of ADSs can tender the shares underlying there ADSs at the price of Rs. 520
per share.This press release does not constitute and offer to purchase shares
or ADSs in the Company.Holders wishing to tender their shares during the
subsequent offering period should consult with the Schedule TO on file with
the Commission.

As of September 07, 2012, iGATE and its subsidiaries owned over 97% of the
outstanding equity of the Company and publicly held ADSs constituted less than
1% of the outstanding equity in the Company.

Against this backdrop, the Company believes that the costs and expenses
associated with the continued listing on the NYSE are not economically
justified, taking into account the fact that the volume of the Company's ADSs
which trade on the NYSE accounts for only a small fraction of the Company's
total outstanding equity. Therefore, the Company decided to apply for
voluntary delisting of its ADSs from the NYSE and for deregistration of its
ADSs under the Exchange Act to eliminate the associated costs and expenses and
thereby promote profitability.
