Scott+Scott
Attorneys at Law LLP
("Scott+Scott"), a national securities and
consumer rights litigation firm, reminds investors of pending class
action lawsuits against Longfin Corp. ("Longfin" or the "Company")
(NASDAQ:LFIN) and certain of its officers, related to alleged
violations of federal securities laws. If you purchased Longfin
securities between December 15, 2017 and April 2, 2018, you are
encouraged to contact a Scott+Scott attorney at (844) 818-6980 for
additional information. The lead plaintiff deadline is June 4, 2018.

Longfin is a finance and technology company that provides trade and
physical commodities solutions for finance businesses and trading
platforms. Longfin recently began using blockchain technology to enable
global trade finance solutions.

The lawsuit alleges that Defendants issued false and misleading
statements to investors, including failing to disclose that: (i) Longfin
had material weaknesses in its operations and internal controls that
hindered the Company's profitability; and (ii) Longfin did not meet the
requirements for inclusion in the Russell 2000 and 3000 indices.

On March 26, 2018, Citron Research ("Citron") posted a tweet on Twitter
questioning the veracity of Longfin's operations. The same day, Russell
issued a statement announcing Longfin would be removed from its indices
after market close on March 28, 2018, approximately 12 days after being
added.

These events caused the price of the Company's stock to decline from
$71.10 per share on March 23, 2018, to close at $14.31 per share on
April 2, 2018, a decline of 79.9%.

On April 2, 2018, after the market closed, Longfin filed its 2017 annual
report (Form 10-K) with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC").
The annual report confirmed that Longfin had material weakness in its
internal control over financial reporting, was not profitable, and was
the subject of an SEC investigation (which later led to a Court-imposed
freeze on $27 million in illicit trading proceeds).

On this news, Longfin's share price fell another $4.42, or 30.88%, to
close at $9.89 on April 3, 2018.
