LOS ANGELES, May 6, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Glancy Binkow & Goldberg LLP announces that all persons or entities who purchased or otherwise acquired the securities of NIVS Intellimedia Technology Group, Inc. ("NIVS" or the "Company") (NYSE Amex:NIV) between March 24, 2010 and March 25, 2011, inclusive (the "Class Period"), have until May 30, 2011 to move the Court to serve as Lead Plaintiff. The securities fraud class action lawsuit was filed in the United States District Court for the Central District of California.

A copy of the Complaint is available from the court or from Glancy Binkow & Goldberg LLP. Please contact us by phone to discuss this action or to obtain a copy of the Complaint at (310) 201‑9150 or Toll Free at (888) 773‑9224, by email to shareholders@glancylaw.com, or visit our website at http://www.glancylaw.com.

The Complaint charges NIVS and certain of the Company's executive officers with violations of federal securities laws. NIVS is an integrated consumer electronics company that designs, manufactures, markets and sells intelligent audio and video products and mobile phones in China, Greater Asia, Europe and North America. The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period defendants knew or recklessly disregarded that their public statements concerning NIVS's business, operations and prospects were materially false and misleading. Specifically, the defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose: (1) that the Company had inaccurately recorded certain transactions; (2) that there were discrepancies in the Company's accounts receivables; (3) that the Company was engaged in improper acts involving the Company's accounting records and bank statements; (4) that, as a result, the Company's financial results were not prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles; (5) that the Company lacked adequate internal controls; and (6) that, as a result of the foregoing, the Company's financial results were false and misleading at all relevant times.

On March 25, 2011, the Company filed a Current Report with the SEC on Form 8-K that disclosed that the Audit Committee of the Board of the Directors had approved the dismissal of NIVS's independent auditor, MaloneBailey LLP ("MaloneBailey"). Further, the Company indicated that on March 23, 2011, MaloneBailey had provided a letter to the Audit Committee, advising that the independent auditor had encountered issues and concerns that, in their view, required additional information and procedures, including the initiation of an independent investigation, in order to verify the accuracy of certain transactions and balances recorded on the Company's financial statements and records. In a letter of resignation MaloneBailey informed the Company that it was "unable to rely on management's representations as they relate to previously issued financial statements and [they] could no longer support its audit opinion dated March 24, 2010, related to [their] audit of consolidated financial statements of the Company and its subsidiaries as of December 31, 2009, included in the Company's annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2009." According to the Company, MaloneBailey "based its resignation on what it characterized illegal acts involving the Company's accounting records and bank statements and discrepancies in accounts receivable."

Any person or group who suffered a loss as a result of purchasing NIVS securities between March 24, 2010 and March 25, 2011, may ask the Court to be appointed as Lead Plaintiff, but must file a motion no later than the May 30, 2011 deadline.
