INVESTOR NOTICE: Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Encourages Investors Who Suffered Losses in Excess of $100,000 Investing in China Finance Online Co., Ltd. to Contact the Firm

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - June 12, 2015) - Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in China Finance Online Co., Ltd. ("China Finance" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: JRJC) of the August 4, 2015 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed against the Company and certain officers.

The lawsuit, pending in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, alleges that Zhiwei Zhao, Chairman and CEO of the Company, resigned from his positions at three key Chinese VIE subsidiaries of China Finance over the past few months after it was revealed that he had an indirect equity interest in a developer the Company had previously heavily invested in.

As a result of the foregoing, China Finance Online's public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

On this news, shares of China Finance fell $1.28 per share, to close on June 3, 2015 at $5.67, a one-day decline of 22% on volume of over 3 million shares.
