Izard Nobel LLP Announces Class Action Lawsuit Against Limited Brands, Inc.

WEST HARTFORD, CT--(Marketwire - November 6, 2009) - The law firm of Izard Nobel LLP, which has significant experience representing investors in prosecuting claims of securities fraud, announces that a lawsuit seeking class action status has been filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio on behalf of those who purchased the common stock of Limited Brands, Inc. ("Limited Brands" or the "Company") (NYSE: LTD) between August 22, 2007 and February 28, 2008 (the "Class Period").

The Complaint charges that Limited Brands, a specialty retailer of women's apparel, beauty products and accessories, and certain of its officers and directors violated federal securities laws. Specifically, defendants made numerous positive statements regarding the Company's financial condition, business and prospects. The Complaint further alleges that these statements were materially false and misleading when made because defendants failed to disclose adverse events surrounding the development of a new warehouse and certain technology.

On February 27, 2008, Limited Brands issued a press release reporting fourth quarter and full year 2007 earnings. This press release significantly lowered the Company's previously issued guidance for 2008. In response to the announcement, the price of Limited Brands common stock fell from $17.82 on February 27, 2008 to $15.85 on February 28, 2008.

If you are a member of the class, you may, no later than January 6, 2010, request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff of the class. A lead plaintiff is a class member that acts on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. Although your ability to share in any recovery is not affected by the decision whether or not to seek appointment as a lead plaintiff, lead plaintiffs make important decisions which could affect the overall recovery for class members.
