New Global Customers Including DaimlerChrysler Services and Orix Leasing Drive Revenues for Fiscal 2005 to Over $5.2 Million, With Net Income Exceeding $730,000

CALABASAS, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 21, 2005 -- NetSol Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTWK), a developer of proprietary software applications and provider of information technology (IT) services, today announced that its new wholly owned subsidiary, CQ Systems, has reported strong revenues and earnings for its fiscal 2005 year, ended March 31, 2005. CQ reported revenue in excess of $5.2 million with net profit of approximately $730,000. NetSol acquired 100 percent of CQ Systems in February of 2005.

"The successful integration of CQ Systems with NetSol's operations will pave the way for rapid market penetration in Europe," said NetSol Technologies CEO Naeem Ghauri. "We believe our combined product and service offering, coupled with CQ's powerful brand name, will result in the penetration of existing customers and numerous new sales opportunities in the coming quarters. CQ has again demonstrated strong sales with new customers including industry leaders such as Aascent Finance, Kenya Commercial Bank, Hutchinson Trust, and Ipswich & Norwich Cooperative Society."

Ghauri continued, "In addition to revenue growth, we are looking forward to improved profit margins through leveraging our development infrastructure in Lahore. This would benefit the revenue and net income for NetSol and provide for cost savings passed on to our customers. Moving forward, we also anticipate increased sales opportunities within the European marketplace."

"We are pleased with our performance and the success of NetSol as a whole since the completion of the acquisition," commented CQ Systems Managing Director Andy Elliott. "The integration of CQ with NetSol at the senior management level has to date been a seamless process. We anticipate the market acceptance of our combined product and service offerings will be reflected in our current fiscal year as our sales pipeline already exceeds our expectations."
