Kirby McInerney LLP Appointed Lead Counsel in Securities Class Action Lawsuit Against Citigroup Inc

NEW YORK, Aug. 20, 2008 (LAWFUEL) — Kirby McInerney LLP has
been appointed lead counsel to act on behalf of a group of investors
who have been appointed lead plaintiff in a securities class action
against Citigroup Inc (NYSE:C). The action is brought on behalf of all
persons who purchased or otherwise acquired the common stock of
Citigroup between January 2, 2004 and November 21, 2007, inclusive (the
“class period”).

The lawsuit alleges that during the class period, the defendants issued
materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s
exposure to losses based upon the Company’s creation and/or sponsorship
of numerous off-balance sheet Variable Interest Entities (“VIE”), and
that these actions constitute violations of the Securities Exchange Act
of 1934. Defendants are Citigroup and certain of its officers and/or
directors.

Disclosure of the truth regarding exposure to VIE-related risks caused,
it is alleged, the price of Citigroup common stock to fall by
approximately half, all totaled, $122 billion in shareholder losses,
which made Citigroup common stock the worst performing stock in the Dow
Jones Industrial Average for 2007.
