The case is pending in the United States District Court for the Central District of California.

The Complaint charges Longtop and certain of the Company's executive officers with violations of federal securities laws. Longtop, together with its subsidiaries, designs, develops, and delivers software solutions and information technology (IT) services to the financial services industry in the People's Republic of China. The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period Defendants misrepresented and/or failed to disclose, among other things: (1) certain related party transactions relating to the Company's purported major staffing company; (2) that the Company had vastly overstated its operating margins; (3) that the Company lacked adequate internal and financial controls; and (4) that, as a result of the foregoing, the Company's statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On April 26, 2011, Citron Research issued a report on Longtop alleging that the Company's financial statements were fraudulent. The report raised serious issues concerning the quality of Longtop's earnings reports and operations and called into question the integrity of the Company's key management, specifically pointing to unfair business practices. On this news, the Company's shares declined $3.30 per share, or nearly 33%, to close on April 26, 2011, at $22.24 per share, and further declined another $4.51 per share, or more than 20%, to close on April 27, 2011, at $17.73 per share.
On May 9, 2011, Citron Research issued an additional report calling into question the Company's financial statements. On this news, the Company's shares declined $1.67 per share, or 8.2% to close on May 9, 2011, at $18.54 per share. Then, on May 17, 2011, trading in Longtop stock was halted. Finally, on May 19, 2011, Longtop announced that it would not release its fourth quarter and fiscal year 2011 results on May 23, 2011, as previously scheduled.
Plaintiff seeks to recover damages on behalf of class members and is represented by Glancy Binkow & Goldberg LLP, a law firm with significant experience in prosecuting class actions, and substantial expertise in actions involving corporate fraud.
If you are a member of the class described above, you may move the Court, no later than July 22, 2011, to serve as lead plaintiff; however, you must meet certain legal requirements.
