WNS Announcement on First Magnus

    MUMBAI, INDIA & NEW YORK, August 16 /CNW/ - WNS (Holdings) Limited (NYSE:  
WNS), a leading provider of offshore business process outsourcing (BPO)
services announced today that following its earnings call earlier today it was
verbally advised by First Magnus Financial Corporation, one of its customers
in the mortgage business, that they expect to stop substantially all work WNS
does for them. First Magnus was expected to account for approximately 5% of
WNS's revenue less repair payments for the period between 1 July 2007 and 31
March 2008. WNS expects that this event will have a material adverse impact on
its financial performance and the guidance it had issued earlier today. WNS is
in the process of evaluating the impact of these events in detail and will
release revised guidance as soon as possible.
