Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Encourages Investors Who Suffered Losses in Excess of $100,000 Investing in 21Vianet Group, Inc. (VNET) to Contact the Firm

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - September 26, 2014) - Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, is investigating potential securities fraud at 21Vianet Group, Inc. ("21Vianet" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: VNET).

The investigation focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by making false and misleading statements and/or failing to disclose material facts regarding its business and operations.

On September 10, 2014, Trinity Research Group issued a report asserting that 21Vianet has greatly exaggerated its financial performance. Specifically, the report states the following: (1) the Company overstated the number of cabinets in its IDC network by at least 14.5% and its utilization by at least 11.1 points; (2) the Company claimed to be operating 72 data centers when in fact 31 of the partnerships have been terminated; (3) the Managed Network Services business that the Company utilizes for acquisitions is operated illegally; and (4) the Company misrepresented the revenue of at least two of its acquired companies by 51% as demonstrated by financial statements filed with Chinese authorities.

When this adverse information entered the market, Vianet's stock price dropped $4.60 per share, or nearly 23%, to close at $15.52 per share on September 10, 2014.
