Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC Announces That a Class Action Has Been Filed Against Noah Education Holdings, Ltd.

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - November 10, 2008) - Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of those who purchased American Depository Shares ("ADSs") of Noah Education Holdings, Ltd. ("Noah Education" or the "Company") (NYSE: NED) in or traceable to the Company's initial public offering ("IPO") on or about October 19, 2007 to November 19, 2007 (the "Class Period")

The complaint charges Noah Education and certain of its officers, directors with violation of the Securities Act of 1933. On or about September 24, 2007, Noah Education filed form F-1 Registration Statement with the SEC for the IPO. On or about October 19, 2007 Noah Education conducted its IPO. The IPO was a financial success for the Company, as it raised over $137 million by selling 9.85 million of the Company's ADSs to investors at a share price of $14.00. Then on November 19, 2007, Noah Education disclosed that that its gross profit margins had dramatically declined from 59.4% in the same period the prior year to 50.2% in the current quarter, due largely to "an increase in the purchasing of certain raw materials components... during July and August." In response to this news, the price of Noah Education ADSs dropped from $12.46 per ADSs to $6.72 on extremely heavy trading volume.
