NetSol Technologies to Expand Chinese Sales and Delivery Operations With Wholly Owned Subsidiary, Leveraging Fast Growing Chinese Consumer and Asset Finance Market

China Revenue Projected to Contribute Nearly 25% of Total NetSol Revenue in 2010; NetSol Financial Suite (NFS) Benefiting From Strong Growth in the Chinese Automotive and Financial Sectors

CALABASAS, CA--(Marketwire - December 8, 2009) - NetSol Technologies, Inc. "NetSol" (NASDAQ: NTWK) (NASDAQ DUBAI: NTWK), a U.S. corporation providing global business services and enterprise application solutions to private and public sector organizations worldwide, today announced that it has started the process to form a wholly owned subsidiary in China. To date, NetSol has been operating from its representative office in Beijing.

Mr. Najeeb Ghauri, NetSol Technologies, Inc. Chairman and Chief Executive Officer commented, "Netsol enjoys a leading market position in the Chinese captive asset finance software space and is benefiting from a robust pipeline. The positive impact of Chinese economic growth, government economic stimulus policies and ten consecutive years of double-digit increases in disposable incomes are driving higher levels of demand for our automotive and consumer finance software solutions. A fully owned China subsidiary will further exhibit our ongoing commitment to our clients and opens up new possibilities for marketing additional services. We expect to grow our China specific revenue to nearly 25% of total revenue in fiscal 2010.

"NetSol has grown its China business completely organically and has recently secured its ninth Chinese customer, the highest number for NetSol in any country in the APAC region. China is a key driver for NetSol and we have now put into place a business plan aimed at aggressively expanding our products and services offerings in the country," concluded Mr. Ghauri.

In addition to the company's core NetSol Financial Suite™ solutions, NetSol plans to offer the following additional services into the local market through a new Chinese Delivery Center:

--  Bespoke software development through its Global Business Services
    Division
