Background on the Longtop Securities Class LitigationThe actions are brought against Longtop and certain of its officers and directors for violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Longtop, headquartered in Beijing, China, designs, develops, and delivers software solutions and information technology services to the financial services industry in China. The actions allege that during the Class Period, defendants misrepresented and omitted material information regarding Longtop’s financial condition and prospects.

In response to the report, the price of Longtop’s shares fell significantly, closing at $17.73 per share on April 27, 2011. Following the publication of the Citron Research report, Longtop hosted a conference call with investors and analysts during which its senior management denied the allegations in the report. On May 9, 2011, Citron published a second report entitled “Longtop Financial (NYSE:LFT) Final Proof of Undisclosed Related Party Transactions.” In response to the report, the price of Longtop shares fell another $1.67 per share, or 8.3 percent, to close at $18.54 on May 9, 2011.
