NetSol Technologies Issues Shareholder Update
EMERYVILLE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 09/30/08 -- NetSol Technologies Inc. "NetSol" (NASDAQ: NTWK) (DIFX: NTWK), a worldwide provider of global business services and enterprise application solutions, today announced that on September 26, 2008, the Company received simultaneously a notice of deficiency and a notice of compliance from NASDAQ. The combined notice arose out of the transaction dated July 23, 2008. NetSol currently stands in full compliance with NASDAQ regulations.
On July 23, 2008, the Company entered into an agreement with investors to issue convertible notes with a principal value of $6.0 million and a conversion rate of $3.00 per share, subject to adjustment as a result of the anti-dilution provisions of the agreement. Certain provisions of the agreements with investors, such as the anti-dilution protection and ability of the Company to pay interest in shares of common stock, created the remote possibility that the Company would issue greater than twenty percent of the issued and outstanding shares of the company at a below market price (based upon the number of shares outstanding at the time of entering into the agreement), in violation of Marketplace Rule 4350(i)(1)(D).
NetSol Technologies states that at no time when entering into the agreements did the Company or investors intend to issue shares in violation of Rule 4350(i)(1)(D), the agreement was amended immediately to remedy the unintentional consequences. The amendments remedied any deficiency and the Company is in full compliance of NASDAQ listing requirements. The conversion prices of the notes remain at $3.00 per share.
