LAWFUEL – The Legal Newswire – HARTFORD, Conn. — The law firm of Schatz Nobel Izard P.C., which has significant experience representing
investors in prosecuting claims of securities fraud, announces that a
lawsuit seeking class action status has been filed in the United States
District Court for the Northern District of Illinois on behalf of all
persons who purchased the publicly traded securities of Midway Games,
Inc. (“Midway”) (NYSE:MWY) between August 4, 2005 and May 24, 2006,
inclusive (the “Class Period”). Also included are those who received
Midway through its acquisitions of Pitbull Syndicate or Midway Studios

The Complaint charges Midway, a developer and publisher of major video
game systems, and certain of its officers and directors violated
federal securities laws. During the Class Period, defendants assured
investors that Midway would perform as expected in the fourth quarter
of 2005. In fact, the Company did not perform as expected because
defendants had decided to lay off 8% of the Company’s workforce and
engage in costly restructuring. Before the full costs of these
decisions were made public, however, defendants were able to sell off
over $14 million of their shares on the open market within three weeks
of one another. On May 24, 2006, defendants announced that they would
have to sell $75 million in convertible notes that would be highly
dilutive to current shareholders in order to raise cash. On this news,
Midway’s stock price fell to $7.39 per share.

If you are a member of the class, you may, no later than September 4,
2007, request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff of the
class. A lead plaintiff is a class member that acts on behalf of other
class members in directing the litigation. Although your ability to
share in any recovery is not affected by the decision whether or not to
seek appointment as a lead plaintiff, lead plaintiffs make important
decisions which could affect the overall recovery for class members,
including decisions concerning settlement. The securities laws require
the Court to consider the class member(s) with the largest financial
interest as presumptively the most adequate lead plaintiff(s).
