Najeeb Ghauri, chairman and CEO of NetSol Technologies, said: While our fiscal third quarter results reflect the most challenging period of the current global economic downturn on our business, I believe we made significant progress in terms of cost reductions as well as the streamlining of our global organizational structure. The combination of our North American and European businesses into one operating segment provides improved cost efficiencies and sales effectiveness across the combined organization. Most importantly, I believe the fiscal third quarter represents the trough of the current downturn for NetSol.
