NOIDA, India and AUCKLAND, New Zealand, Jan. 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ebix, Inc. (NASDAQ: EBIX), a leading international supplier of On-Demand software and E-commerce services to the insurance, financial, healthcare and e-learning industries, today announced that it has signed a sponsorship for India’s Tour of New Zealand 2020.

The brand EBIX will have a strong presence on ground across venues during all the three series.

NZ Cricket Board in a statement said, “It’s been an exciting home season for the BLACKCAPS and with teams now looking forward to the T20 World Cup later this year, the five Match T20 Series with India is not only an ideal preparation for our squad but also a tremendous opportunity for fans to enjoy high quality T20 Cricket. We are also looking forward to the One Day and Test sides competing for supremacy to cap off an incredible home season for us where in England, India and Australia have toured our shores. We want to thank the series partners that recognize the global nature of the game and support cricket across boundaries.”

Ebix Chairman and CEO Robin Raina said, “We are delighted to be among the sponsors for the New Zealand-India series. Cricket in India has been the best marketing vehicle for brands.

We have with us commitment of millions of our committed users across the world. As we are aggressively expanding to new territories and new client base, we are glad to be associated with the Black Caps and New Zealand Cricket as sort of marketing associates in the growth.”
