BOCA RATON, Fla., March 25, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The law firm of Saxena White P.A.announces that a class action lawsuit has been brought on behalf of all persons who purchased the securities of ShengdaTech, Inc. ("ShengdaTech" or the "Company") (Nasdaq:SDTH) between March 15, 2010 and March 15, 2011, inclusive (the "Class Period") in the Southern District of New York.

ShengdaTech, headquartered in Shanghai, China, describes itself as a leading developer and manufacturer of nano precipitated calcium carbonate used as an additive in various products, including paint, paper, plastic, and rubber.

On March 15, 2011, ShengdaTech announced that it had appointed a special committee of the Board of Directors to investigate "potentially serious discrepancies and unexplained issues relating to the Company and its subsidiaries' financial records identified by the Company's auditors." ShengdaTech also disclosed that its audit committee had retained O'Melveny & Myers LLP as independent outside counsel, which had commenced an internal investigation, that the SEC had been notified about the investigation, and that it would not be able to file its 2010 Form 10-K in a timely manner. Following these announcements, Nasdaq halted trading of ShengdaTech shares.
