The case filed by the Rosen Law Firm is pending in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California.

NO CLASS HAS YET BEEN CERTIFIED IN THE ABOVE ACTION. UNTIL A CLASS IS CERTIFIED, YOU ARE NOT REPRESENTED BY COUNSEL UNLESS YOU RETAIN ONE. YOU MAY CHOOSE TO DO NOTHING AT THIS POINT AND REMAIN AN ABSENT CLASS MEMBER.

The Complaint asserts violations of the federal securities laws against Longtop and its officers and directors for misrepresenting the true financial condition of the Company and failing to disclose material related party transactions during the Class Period. Beginning on April 26, 2011 a series of reports issued by Citron Research and others exposed potential accounting fraud and nondisclosure of related party transactions at Longtop.

On May 17, 2011 a trading halt was instituted on Longtop’s common stock. On May 23, 2011 Longtop issued a press release announcing, among other things, (1) the resignation of its auditor, Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu CPA Ltd. (“DTT”); (2) the resignation of Longtop’s Chief Financial Officers; (3) the initiation of an SEC inquiry; (4) and the initiation of an independent investigation. According to the announcement, DTT was resigning because of “(1) the recently identified falsity of the Company's financial records in relation to cash at bank and loan balances (and possibly in sales revenue); (2) the deliberate interference by certain members of Longtop management in DTT's audit process; and (3) the unlawful detention of DTT's audit files.”

DTT also stated that it “was no longer able to rely on management’s representations in relation to prior period financial reports, that continued reliance should not longer be placed on DTT’s audit reports on the previous financial statements, and DTT declined to be associated with any of the Company’s financial communications in 2010 and 2011.

If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than July 22, 2011.
