NEW YORK, June 8, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- A Sino-Forest Corporation investor has retained Kirby McInerney LLP to investigate and possibly bring a class action lawsuit on behalf of all persons who acquired shares of Sino-Forest Corp. ("Sino-Forest" or the "Company").

The firm has been retained to investigate potential violations of the federal securities laws related to the Company's public statements. On June 2, 2011, analyst firm Muddy Waters Research ("Muddy Waters") published a report asserting that Sino-Forest greatly exaggerated its assets. For example, the report alleged that Sino-Forest overstated its forestry purchases in China's Yunnan province by more than C$800 million. Muddy Waters also claimed that the Company's "capital raising is a multi-billion dollar Ponzi scheme." On this news, shares of Sino-Forest stock lost nearly two-thirds of its value.
