It is estimated that shareholders lost in excess of $100 billion on MCI WorldCom securities. It is believed that the proposed settlement will provide shareholders with less than 2 cents for every dollar lost. Parker & Waichman believes this proposed settlement does not provide adequate compensation for MCI WorldCom shareholders. Parker & Waichman urges shareholders to determine whether they would be better served by opting out of the proposed settlement.

Current and former shareholders who desire to opt-out of the WorldCom class action settlement must mail the opt-out form or required information before the September 1, 2004 opt-out deadline. This will permit them to pursue individual claims against the defendants, including Citigroup.
