    • Insurance software/Web services firm Ebix (EBIX -2%) states it's interested in making a 175 pence/share, or $685M, offer for U.K. software outsourcing/BPO services firm Xchanging (OTC:XCNGF).

    • Both Ebix ($1.12B market cap) and CSC are offering cash for Xchanging. Ebix CEO Robin Raina: "We see substantial synergies, economies of scale and growth potential for the combined business. Our interest in making an offer for Xchanging plc is borne out of our belief that a combination of the two companies could be substantially and immediately accretive to Ebix's EPS while also adhering to our other stringent criteria."
    • Xchanging is up 5.6% in London to 178.00 pence, as markets bet the bidding war isn't over. Ebix, which recently shot higher following a Q3 beat, is down moderately. Per U.K. law, the company has until Dec. 9 to "announce a firm intention" to bid for Xchanging, or to declare it doesn't intend to do so.
