CALABASAS, Calif., May 24, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NetSol Technologies, Inc. ("NetSol" or the "Company") (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 signed an agreement worth over $2 million to implement its entire NetSol Financial Suite (NFS)™ solution, including its Wholesale and Retail platforms, with a major auto manufacturer's captive finance arm in India.

The client company, one of the five largest auto captive finance companies worldwide, will launch its financing operations in India using NetSol's industry-leading auto finance and leasing platform. NetSol is currently implementing the system for this client and expects it to go live in the second half of 2011.

A growing middle class in Asia's third-largest economy, combined with a wider selection of models and easier access to credit, drove auto sales in India up a record 31% in 2010. While the higher base will impact comparative sales in 2011, overall demand continues to increase in absolute terms, with industry analysts forecasting 12-15% growth for the year.

"Following our success in China and Thailand, this contract win further substantiates NetSol's leadership position for the leasing and financing domain in the Asia-Pacific region," stated Naeem Ghauri, President and Head of Global Sales at NetSol. "This new contract gives NetSol entry into one of the world's fastest-growing auto markets and positions us for future growth in India's burgeoning financial industry."
