Robbins Umeda LLP Announces an Investigation of ChinaCast Education Corporation

  Robbins Umeda LLP Announces an Investigation of ChinaCast Education   Corporation  Business Wire  SAN DIEGO -- June 01, 2012  Shareholder rights firm Robbins Umeda LLP is investigating possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of the law by certain officers and directors at ChinaCast Education Corporation (NASDAQ: CAST).  Robbins Umeda LLP's investigation focuses on whether the directors and officers of ChinaCast harmed the company and investors by issuing improper statements about the condition and future business prospects of the company. In particular, it is alleged that ChinaCast misled the investing public and failed to disclose known facts related to deficiencies in the company's internal controls that allegedly permitted, among other things, the wrongful transfer of $120 million in cash by Ron Chan Tze Ngon ("Mr. Chan"), the company's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, from bank accounts belonging to ChinaCast's subsidiaries.  On April 2, 2012, the NASDAQ temporarily halted trading of the ChinaCast's common stock. The very same day, ChinaCast disclosed on Form 8-K that it was assessing the impact of Mr. Chan's improper actions on the company's "overall business." As part of this disclosure, ChinaCast ominously warned that unless still outstanding issues with Mr. Chan are resolved successfully, "there may be a significant material adverse effect on its business, financial condition, results of operations and business prospects." Since these allegations have surfaced, ChinaCast has increasingly become the focus of costly public scrutiny, while deficient internal controls and unresolved management disputes at ChinaCast continue to threaten the company's business prospects and intrinsic value for shareholders.  Concerned investors in ChinaCast stock have several potential options available to them.
