NetSol Provides Update on Lawsuit

CALABASAS, Calif., April 2, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NetSol Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:NTWK), a global provider of IT and enterprise software solutions, today provided an update on the previously disclosed purported shareholder class action lawsuits originally filed in July 2014 against the Company and certain executives.

The lawsuits were consolidated under the caption Rand-Heart of New York, Inc. v. NetSol Technologies, Inc., et al., U.S.D.C. Case No. 2:14-cv-5787 (SHx) (C.D. Cal.). A lead plaintiff was appointed and it subsequently filed a Consolidated Complaint. On March 19, 2015, the District Court granted the Company's motion to dismiss the Consolidated Complaint. As is common, the Court provided the lead plaintiff an opportunity to file an amended complaint.

On March 31, 2015, the lead plaintiff filed a First Amended Consolidated Complaint, which includes allegations similar to but more narrow than those in the dismissed complaint. The Company continues to believe that the claims are meritless and intends to continue to vigorously defend itself, including filing a motion to dismiss the amended complaint.

The Company expects that its future legal fees related to the lawsuit will be covered by its liability insurance policy.
