NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 05/12/07 -- On May 11, 2007, the law firm of Sarraf Gentile LLP commenced a securities fraud class action lawsuit on behalf of those investors who acquired the securities of Optionable Inc. (OTCBB: OPBL) ("Optionable" or the "Company") during the period May 6, 2005 to May 10, 2007, inclusive (the "Class Period"). The lawsuit is pending in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York and names as defendants Optionable Inc. and certain of its top executives.

The Complaint alleges that Optionable and certain of its officers and directors violated the federal securities laws by making misleading statements concerning the Company's business prospects and growth. Specifically, throughout the Class Period, Defendants failed to disclose the following facts: (i) Optionable was engaged in improper deals with its biggest client, the Bank of Montreal ("BMO"); (ii) Optionable's business was extremely dependent upon BMO; and (iii) Defendants were able to retain BMO only because they helped its star options trader mismark options, falsify the trading price at which BMO traded those options, and hide massive losses incurred by BMO as a result of those trades. While the stock was trading at artificially inflated prices, as a result of this fraudulent scheme, Defendants sold shares of Optionable, for proceeds of over $28 million.

On April 27, 2007, BMO announced that it had lost between $300 to $400 million on trades executed through Optionable. In response to this disclosure, the Company's stock dropped 33%. Then, on May 8, 2007, BMO announced it was suspending all of its business relationships with Optionable. Finally, on May 10, 2007, it was disclosed that Deloitte & Touche LLP had conducted an audit of the trades BMO had conducted with Optionable and found that there had been "serious mismarking of the book of natural gas options." On this news, the price of Optionable fell further to $0.84, representing a total drop of nearly 90%. During the Class Period, Optionable stock traded as high as $9.10 per share.

Plaintiff is represented by the law firm of Sarraf Gentile LLP, which has extensive experience in the prosecution of class actions on behalf of investors.

If you bought the securities of Optionable between May 6, 2005 and May 10, 2007, you may, no later than July 10, 2007, move the Court to appoint you as lead plaintiff, a representative party that acts on behalf of other class members. The Court must determine whether the class member's claim is typical of other class members' claims, and whether the class member will adequately represent the class. Your ability to share in any recovery is not, however, affected by the decision whether or not to serve as a lead plaintiff. You may retain Sarraf Gentile LLP or other counsel of your choice, to serve as your counsel in this action.

If you would like to participate in this action or would like additional information about the lawsuit, please contact Joseph Gentile at Sarraf Gentile LLP, 485 Seventh Avenue, Suite 1005, New York, New York 10018 (telephone: 212-868-3610; e-mail: joseph*sarrafgentile.com).

it`s down over 90 percent since the suit was filed!!! there may be small pops here and there but i would hardly consider it a run. bag holders dumping for whatever they can, day traders flipping it for a quick buck, threads like this hyping a B/S stock! without posting VERY relevant FACTS!!, could be halted or suspended any minute!! everything about this SCREAMS stay AWAY!!! good luck!!!!
