WILMINGTON, Del., May 29, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Andrews & Springer LLC, a boutique securities class action law firm focused on representing shareholders nationwide, is investigating potential breach of fiduciary duty claims against the Board of Directors of ChinaCast Education, Corp. ("ChinaCast" or the "Company").
On September 26, 2013, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") filed an action against ChinaCast's former Chairman and CEO Chan Tze Ngon ("Chan") and former President Jiang Xiangyuan ("Jiang") for engaging in a scheme that improperly diverted $41 million of Company proceeds to certain ChinaCast subsidiaries where the former executives secretly held ownership stakes. Additionally, according to the SEC, Jiang used non-public information from the Company to dump over $230,000 worth of stock before the information became public. When news about the fraud and misconduct reached the public, ChinaCast's market capitalization dropped from over $200 million down to $5 million. On April 2, 2014, NASDAQ suspended trading in ChinaCast. The Company has subsequently been delisted from the NASDAQ exchange and currently trades over-the-counter. (A copy of the SEC's complaint can be found here: http://www.sec.gov/litigation/complaints/2013/comp-pr2013-200.pdf)
