Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Encourages Investors Who Suffered Substantial Losses Investing In New Oriental Education & Technology Group To Contact The Firm Before The September 21, 2012 Class Action Deadline

NEW YORK, Sept. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, is investigating potential securities fraud at New Oriental Education & Technology Group ("New Oriental" or the "Company") (NYSE: EDU).

(Logo:  http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20120119/MM38856LOGO )

The investigation focuses on whether the New Oriental and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose that:  (1) the Company improperly consolidated the earnings of a variable interest entity into its financial statements; (2) a significant number of the Company's schools and learning centers were not company-owned, but were instead operated by independent franchisees; (3) upfront franchise and other fees had artificially inflated the Company's cash balances; and (4) the Company lacked adequate internal and financial controls and as a result of the foregoing, New Oriental's financial statements were materially false and misleading.

On July 17, 2012, the Company disclosed that the Securities and Exchange Commission "had issued a formal order of investigation" as to whether the Company appropriately consolidated the earnings of Beijing New Oriental Education & Technology (Group) Co., Ltd., a variable interest entity of the Company, and its wholly-owned subsidiaries.  On this news, New Oriental's share price plummeted by $7.64 or more than 34%, to close at $14.62 on July 17, 2012.

On July 18, 2012, independent securities research firm Muddy Waters, LLC issued an analyst report predicting that the Company "will have a significant restatement, and that its auditor will resign."  On this news, New Oriental's share price declined by an additional $5.12 or more than 35%, to close at $9.50 on July 18, 2012.
