Securities Class Action Lawsuit Filed Against Suntech Power Holdings Co.; Shareholders With Large Losses Encouraged to Contact Holzer Holzer & Fistel, LLC Before October 1st Lead Plaintiff Deadline

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - Sep 10, 2012) - A class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of investors who purchased American Depository Shares of Suntech Power Holdings Co., LTD ("Suntech" or the "Company") (NYSE: STP) between August 18, 2010 and July 30, 2012. The lawsuit, which was filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California, alleges that Suntech executives violated the federal securities laws by misrepresenting the existence of over 560 million (EURO) in German government bonds which were purportedly pledged to Suntech in connection with the Company's loan guarantee it made for a related entity, Global Solar Fund ("GSF"). On July 30, 2012, Suntech disclosed that investigations into the supposed security interest suggested that the German bonds did not exist and the Company filed several lawsuits seeking control of GSF. The value of Suntech's ADSs declined significantly on the news.
