("Carbo Ceramics" or the "Company") (NYSE: CRR - News) during the period between October 27, 2011 and January 26, 2012, inclusive (the "Class Period").

No class has yet been certified in the above action. Members of the Class will be represented by the lead plaintiff and counsel chosen by the lead plaintiff. If you wish to choose counsel to represent you and the Class, you must apply to be appointed lead plaintiff no later than April 9, 2012 and be selected by the Court.

The lead plaintiff will be selected from among applicants claiming the largest loss from investment in the Company during the Class Period. You are not required to have sold your shares to seek damages or to serve as a Lead Plaintiff.
The complaint accuses the defendants of violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by virtue of the Company's failure to disclose during the Class Period that the Company was experiencing a dramatic decline in proppant sales in the Haynesville region and was being negatively impacted by logistical problems such that it was not able to shift resources to liquid plays where drilling activity was increasing. According to the complaint, after, on January 26, 2012, Carbo Ceramics revealed that the Company had seen a 70% decline in proppant sales in the Haynesville region and that it had been unable to shift resources to various liquid plays due to logistical issues, the value of Carbo Ceramics shares declined significantly.
If you choose to retain counsel, you may retain Brower Piven without financial obligation or cost to you, or you may retain other counsel of your choice. You need take no action at this time to be a member of the class.
