THE COURT’S SETTLEMENT HEARING
The Court will hold a hearing on September 8, 2011, at 3:00 p.m., at the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, Daniel Patrick Moynihan United States Courthouse, Courtroom 17C, 500 Pearl Street, New York, New York. At this hearing, the Court will consider whether the Settlements are fair, reasonable and adequate, and should be approved, and will also consider the proposed Plan of Allocation for the proceeds of both Settlements and the application for attorneys’ fees and reimbursement of expenses. Note: The Court may change the date or time of the Settlement Hearing without further notice. If you plan to attend the Settlement Hearing, you should check with Lead Counsel (listed in the Contact Information link on the left) to be sure that the date and/or time has not changed.

WHAT IS THIS LAWSUIT ABOUT?
Lead Plaintiffs allege that Defendants violated the Securities Exchange Action of 1934 and the Securities Act of 1933, by issuing materially false and misleading statements during the Class Period about Satyam’s financial results. The Settling Defendants maintain that they have meritorious defenses to all claims that were raised or could have been raised in this Action.

THE BENEFITS OF THE SETTLEMENTS
Satyam will deposit $125 million and the PwC Entities will deposit $25.5 million into interest-bearing escrow accounts. The balance of these funds, after deduction of Court-awarded attorneys’ fees and expenses, notice and administration costs, any banking transaction costs and banking fees, any and all applicable taxes, and the establishment of a litigation fund for the continuing prosecution of the Action against the remaining defendants in the Action (the “Net Settlement Funds”), will be distributed to Class Members who timely submit valid Proofs of Claim that are accepted for payment by the Court (“Authorized Claimants”) in accordance with the plan of allocation that is approved by the Court.
