Outsourcer EPAM buys Canada IT shop for $17M


EPAM Systems, Inc., the Newtown, Bucks County software engineering-IT outsourcing company that specializes in replacing engineers in the U.S. and other Western markets with lower-paid work in the former Soviet Union and Soviet-bloc countries, says it's agreed to pay $17.4 million in cash, stock and assumed debt for Toronto-based Thoughtcorp, an "IT consultancy and software solution provider" for telecom, finance and retail companies.
