INVESTOR ALERT: KGS Announces That MF Global, Ltd. Investors May Now Request Lead Plaintiff Position in Securities Class Action Lawsuit

NEW ORLEANS, LA--(Marketwire - March 8, 2008) - Kahn Gauthier Swick, LLC ("KGS") announces that shareholders of MF Global, Ltd. ("MF" or the "Company") (NYSE: MF) who purchased shares of the Company in its Initial Public Offering ("IPO") on July 19, 2007 or in the open market from July 19, 2007 through February 28, 2008 (the "Class Period"), have only until May 6, 2008 to move for appointment as Lead Plaintiff in a securities class action lawsuit currently pending in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. No class has yet been certified in this action.

UNLESS A CLASS IS CERTIFIED, YOU ARE NOT PERSONALLY REPRESENTED BY COUNSEL UNLESS YOU RETAIN AN ATTORNEY.

If you would like to discuss your legal rights, you may e-mail or call KGS Managing Partner Lewis Kahn, without obligation or cost to you, toll free 1-866-467-1400, ext. 100, via cell phone after hours at 504-301-7900, or by email at lewis.kahn@kgscounsel.com.

MF and certain of its officers and directors -- collectively, "defendants" -- are charged with including, or allowing the inclusion of, materially false and misleading statements in the Registration Statement and Prospectus issued in connection with the IPO, in violation of the Securities Act of 1933.

If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff in this class action lawsuit, you must move the Court no later than May 6, 2008. Any member of the putative class may move the Court to serve as lead plaintiff through counsel of their choice, or may choose to do nothing and remain an absent class member.

You may also choose to remain an absent class member. Critical components of a law firm's ability to successfully prosecute this action and obtain a strong recovery for you include the resources it will dedicate to prosecution of the case, including the number of lawyers the firm has available for the MF action in particular, AND especially the quality of the firm's work.
