The Complaint charges Velti and certain of the Company's executive officers
with violations of the federal securities laws, alleging that, throughout the
Class Period, the defendants made false and/or misleading statements, as well

results to investors. Specifically, the Complaint alleges that the defendants
made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1)

of the Company's receivables were uncollectible; (3) as a result, the
Company's revenues and receivables were overstated during the Class Period;

result of the foregoing, the Company's statements and reported financial
results were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

financial results and disclosed that the Company had made the decision to

contract receivables relating to its enterprise business. Moreover, the
Company announced a "major restructuring" of its business. On this news,
