SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Brower Piven Encourages Investors Who Have Losses in Excess of $100,000 from Investment in UTi Worldwide Inc. to Contact Brower Piven Before the May 16, 2014 Lead Plaintiff Deadline

STEVENSON, Md. --(Business Wire)--

Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation announces that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the United States District Court for the Central District of California on behalf of purchasers of UTi Worldwide Inc. ("UTi" or the "Company") (NasdaqGS: UTIW) common stock during the period between December 5, 2013 and February 25, 2014, inclusive (the "Class Period").

If you have suffered a loss from investment in UTi common stock purchased on or after December 5, 2013 and held through the revelation of negative information on February 26, 2014 as described below, you may obtain additional information about this lawsuit and your ability to become a lead plaintiff, at no cost to you, by contacting Brower Piven at, by email at, by calling 410/415-6616, or at Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, 1925 Old Valley Road, Stevenson, Maryland 21153. Attorneys at Brower Piven have combined experience litigating securities and class action cases of over 60 years.

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 May 16, 2014 and be selected by the Court. The lead plaintiff will direct the litigation and participate in important decisions including whether to accept a settlement and how much of a settlement to accept for the Class in the action. The lead plaintiff will be selected from among applicants claiming the largest loss from investment in Company units during the Class Period.

The complaint accuses the defendants of violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by virtue of the defendants' failure to disclose during the Class Period that the Company's lines of credit were rapidly depleting and that its liquidity problems were so severe that UTi was forced to engage in a heavily dilutive offering of convertible notes and preferred shares. According to the complaint, following the Company's February 26, 2014 disclosure of its true financial situation, the value of UTi 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.
