STEC, Inc.

 Roy Jacobs & Associates Files Class Action on Behalf of Purchasers of STEC, Inc. Securities (“STEC”)

 New York, New York—March 4, 2010—Roy Jacobs & Associates announces that it has filed a class action complaint in the United States District Court for the Central District of California on behalf of purchasers of the common stock of STEC, Inc. ("STEC") (NASDAQ: STEC) during the period from November 4, 2009 through February 23, 2010, alleging claims for securities fraud pursuant to the federal securities laws.  The Complaint was filed against STEC and its Chief Executive.

 For further information, please contact Roy L. Jacobs, Esq. toll-free at 1-888-884-4490 or by e-mail to rjacobs@jacobsclasslaw.com, or visit our Website where you can obtain further information and join the action.

 The complaint alleges that on November 3, 2009, STEC represented in a conference call that EMC’s inventory of STEC’s SSD products was affecting STEC’s sales, but that this problem could be ameliorated by energizing sales force efforts and increasing consumer education about SSDs.  In fact, however, the problem was not a lack of sales force effort or consumer knowledge about SSDs, but consumer resistance to purchasing the ultimate product due to its cost, performance, and flexibility of use. 

 Then, on February 23, 2010, STEC revealed that it believed “the first half of 2010 will be a trough period for our business due to an inventory carryover by our largest customer [EMC] . . . [B]ased on our best estimates we now anticipate [the EMC] inventory carryover to continue to negatively impact our sales to this customer during the first half of 2010, as we do not expect any meaningful production orders from this customer during that time.”  As a result, STEC is earning half the revenue analysts predicted STEC would earn.  As a result of this surprise announcement, STEC shares dropped over 23% in value on February 24, 2010, a decline of $3.15 on extraordinary trading volume, and have not recovered.

 If you purchased STEC common stock during the period from November 4, 2009 through February 23, 2010, whether or not you still hold your shares, and you are interested in discussing your rights free of charge, please contact Roy L. Jacobs.  Mr. Jacobs will be glad to personally speak with you, or you may visit our Website at www.jacobsclasslaw.com.  You may qualify to serve as Lead Plaintiff on behalf of the Class.  All motions for appointment as Lead Plaintiff must be filed by May 3, 2010.  You do not have to sell your shares to serve as a Lead Plaintiff.
