Mr. Ghauri, NetSol's Chairman and CEO, stated: "We have seen a noticeable increase in activity within Pakistan's public sector, and its health and private business sectors are also on the rise. As a premier IT company in Pakistan, NetSol has been invited as a pre-qualified company to tender offers for several new projects, and our business development teams are aggressively bidding for these contracts. We expect to periodically update our investors with material developments as we win these bids." The Company's management has completed several recent purchases of NetSol stock, including 500,000 shares acquired in February and March 2011.
