INVESTOR ALERT: Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Encourages Investors Who Suffered Losses in Excess of $50,000 Investing in Amira Nature Foods Ltd. (ANFI) to Contact the Firm

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - February 13, 2015) -  Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, notifies investors in Amira Nature Foods Ltd. ("Amira" or the "Company") (NYSE: ANFI) of the April 13, 2015 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed against Amira and certain executives and directors. 

A complaint has been filed in the Central District of California on behalf of all persons who purchased or otherwise acquired Amira securities pursuant and/or traceable to the Company's Registration Statement and Prospectus issued in connection with Amira's initial public offering ("IPO") or purchased or otherwise acquired Amira common stock from September 27, 2012 to February 9, 2015, inclusive (the "Class Period").

The complaint alleges that the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws with respect to its disclosures concerning its business, operations, and prospects.

Specifically, the action alleges that during the Class Period, Amira issued false and misleading statements regarding (i) the Company's rice revenue for the fiscal years 2013 and 2014; and (ii) the Company's engagement in material related-party transactions.
