The lead plaintiff will direct the litigation and participate in important decisions including whether to accept a settlement and how much of a settlement to accept for the Class in the action.

According to the complaint, China Sky One failed to reveal to its shareholders that the company inflated its earnings and gross margins, while failing to implement proper internal and financial controls within the company. On February 15, 2012, the Company announced that 26 middle-management level employees had resigned, and NASDAQ announced that trading of all China Sky One shares was suspended indefinitely until China Sky One released more information. China Sky One’s shares fell over 28% that same day, to close at $1.10 per share.
