NetSol Technologies Issues Shareholder Update

EMERYVILLE, CA--(Marketwire - September 10, 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 on September 3, 2009, the Company received a notice of deficiency from NASDAQ. The notice arose out of an April 2009 transaction whereby a rule 144 restricted share offering was made to key employees and consultants, as an incentive plan that specifically excluded officers and directors of the Company, at a discount to the market. Since the Employee offering was made at a discount to the market at that time, the transaction was classified by NASDAQ as an employee compensation arrangement requiring shareholder approval for the transaction. As prior shareholder approval was not acquired, the transaction was deemed to be in violation of Listing Rule 5635(c).

NetSol Technologies states that at no time, when entering into the agreements with its key employees, did the Company intend to issue shares in violation of Rule 5635(c). The purchase agreements have subsequently been amended by setting the offer price to market to remedy the violation. The Company has now received notice from NASDAQ that, with this remedy, NetSol is no longer in violation of the listing rules.
