Blum & Silver, LLP Files FINRA Arbitration On Behalf of Investors Injured by Citigroup's MAT Five Fund

Coral Springs, Florida, UNITED STATES

CORAL SPRINGS, Fla., July 16, 2008 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- Blum & Silver, LLP (, announced that it has filed a FINRA arbitration claim against Citigroup on behalf of investors in Citigroup's MAT Five Fund.

Blum & Silver, LLP continues investigating loses in the MAT Five Fund and other funds which have suffered devastating losses. Citigroup recently announced that it is extending the deadline for investors to accept a tender offer previously made by Citigroup.

A class action lawsuit has been filed against Citigroup Global Markets, Inc. ("Citigroup") (NYSE:C) and other related parties in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of purchasers of MAT Five, LLC ("MAT Five), Case No. 08-CV-4152.

We believe investors will achieve better results on their claims through individual arbitration claims rather than through the class action process.

We believe investors should consider all of their legal options prior to accepting any settlement offer from Citigroup or joining a class action.

Blum & Silver, LLP continues to investigate the matter including potential liability of other participants in the Fund.
