BOCA RATON, Fla., Feb. 25, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Saxena White P.A., which has filed a class action lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Central District of California on behalf of all investors who purchased Tongxin International Ltd. ("Tongxin" or the "Company") (Pink Sheets:TXIC) securities during the period between May 15, 2009 and December 14, 2010, inclusive (the "Class Period"), reminds investors that the deadline to serve as lead plaintiff is next Friday, March 4, 2011. If you wish to serve as a lead plaintiff, please contact Saxena White as soon as possible for more information.

The complaint alleges that during the Class Period, defendants issued materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company's business and financial results. Specifically, defendants improperly accounted for Tongxin's related-party transactions. As a result of defendants' false statements, Tongxin's stock traded at artificially inflated prices during the Class Period, reaching a high of $12.07 per share on October 20, 2009.

On June 30, 2010, Tongxin announced that it would delay filing its Form 20-F for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2009. On October 12, 2010, Tongxin announced that NASDAQ would delist the Company's stock due to its failure to timely file its Form 20-F and acknowledged that a report issued by KPMG, the forensic accountants hired by the Company's Audit Committee, concluded that the documentary support for certain of its related-party transactions was contradictory, insufficient and lacking in substantive detail and accuracy, thus calling into question the validity of the transactions. On November 20, 2010, Tongxin announced that the Company's CEO and CFO were being removed from their positions with the Company and lowered its revenue guidance for fiscal year 2010 from its prior outlook of $160 million to a range of $110 million. Then, on December 13, 2010, Tongxin announced that it had filed a civil suit against its former CFO. On this news, Tongxin's stock declined to close at $1.35 per share on December 14, 2010.
