(“NIVS” or the “Company”) (AMEX: NIV) common stock between March 24, 2010 and March 25, 2011, inclusive (the “Class Period”).

What are the allegations in the complaint? NIVS is an integrated consumer electronics company that designs, manufactures, markets and sells intelligent audio and video products and mobile phones in China, Greater Asia, Europe and North America. According to the complaint, during the Class Period, defendants made false and/or misleading statements and failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects, including that the Company: (i) had inaccurately recorded certain transactions; (ii) had discrepancies in its accounts receivables; (iii) was engaged in illegal acts involving its accounting records and bank statements; (iv) failed to record its financial results in accordance with GAAP; and (v) lacked adequate internal controls.

On March 25, 2011, the Company filed a Form 8-K with the SEC that disclosed that the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors had approved the dismissal of NIVS’s independent auditor, MaloneBailey LLP. According to the Company, MaloneBailey “based its resignation on what it characterized [as] illegal acts involving the Company’s accounting records and bank statements and discrepancies in accounts receivable.

Based upon the foregoing, the complaint charges NIVS and certain of its officers and directors with violations of the federal securities laws.
