The law firm of Harwood Feffer LLP announces that it filed a new class action lawsuit on February 9, 2009 on behalf of purchasers of the American Depository Shares ("ADSs") of Satyam Computer Services Ltd. ("Satyam" or the "Company") (NYSE:SAY) during the period January 6, 2004 through January 6, 2009 (the "Class Period"). Shareholders may obtain a copy of the complaint by calling our offices or emailing us at the e-mail addresses listed below. The action is pending in United States District Court for the Southern District of New York.

The complaint alleges that the Company and its two top executives violated Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by issuing false and misleading financial statements. On January 7, 2009, the Company's Chairman B. Ramalinga Raju sent a letter to the Satyam Board of Directors and the Securities & Exchange Board of India admitting a "multi-year" fraud in which Satyam's financial accounts and disclosures were systematically falsified. According to the letter, Raju admitted to having inflated the amount of cash on the Company's balance sheet by nearly $1 billion, incurring liability of $253 million on funds arranged by him personally, and overstating Satyam's September 2008 quarterly revenues by 76% and profits by 97%. The Complaint also alleges that Satyam's auditors PricewaterhouseCoopers Pvt. Ltd., PricewaterhouseCooopers International Limited, and PricewaterhouseCoopers were active participants in the Company's fraud. As a result of this disclosure trading in the ADSs was halted, with an estimated indication of a loss being approximately 90% of its value.

If you bought stock from January 6, 2004 through January 6, 2009, no later than March 7, 2009, you may move the court to appoint you as lead plaintiff, a representative party that acts on behalf of other class members. The court must determine whether the class member's claim is typical of other members' claims, and whether the class member will adequately represent the class. Your ability to recover is not, however, affected by your decision whether or not to serve as a lead plaintiff.

Harwood Feffer has taken a leading role in many important actions on behalf of defrauded shareholders and has recovered hundreds of millions of dollars in those efforts.
