Key projects are being delivered on time and on budget, quality initiatives are succeeding, and our delivery capabilities are stronger than ever. "Mr. Ghauri continued, "For the remainder of fiscal 2011, our primary focus will be to build upon our strong foundation in the Chinese market. We are working toward forming a wholly owned subsidiary in China, which will boost our local presence and enable our participation in the growing banking, big ticket leasing, and equipment rental sectors. We anticipate further penetration by NetSol into China's burgeoning captive leasing and finance market, where we currently have a large majority of the IT market share. Additionally, we see numerous opportunities in other parts of the world, including Thailand, the U.S., Saudi Arabia and Latin America. Our successful track record and global footprint in China, Thailand, the U.S., the UK, Australia, the Middle East and Pakistan gives us a clear market advantage in every corner of the globe. We enter the second half of fiscal 2011 tremendously optimistic about the growth opportunities that lie ahead."
