April 25, 2011 Lead Plaintiff Deadline – ITRI

Levi & Korsinsky announces that a class action lawsuit has been commenced
in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of
Washington on behalf of purchasers of the common stock of Itron, Inc.
("Itron" or the "Company") (Nasdaq: ITRI) during the period between April
28, 2010 and February 16, 2011 (the "Class Period").

New York, NY, March 10, 2011 -- Levi & Korsinsky announces that a class
action lawsuit has been commenced in the United States District Court for
the Eastern District of Washington on behalf of purchasers of the common
stock of Itron, Inc. ("Itron" or the "Company") (Nasdaq: ITRI) during the
period between April 28, 2010 and February 16, 2011 (the "Class Period").

The complaint alleges that Itron and certain of its executive officers
violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose that (i) Itron
improperly recognized revenue on a contract due to an extended warranty
obligation; (ii) the Company's revenue and financial results were
overstated during the Class Period; (iii) the Company's financial results
were not prepared in accordance with GAAP; (iv) Itron lacked adequate
internal and financial controls; and (v), as a result, the Company's
financial statements were materially misleading.

On February 16, 2011, Itron announced it was restating its financial
results to correct improperly recognized revenue on a contract due to an
extended warranty obligation. The restatement reduced total revenue for
the first nine months of 2010 by $6.1 million and both GAAP and non -GAAP
diluted earnings per share were reduced by $0.11. The next day, Itron
shares fell $6.33, to close at $57.29.

If you are a member of the class, you have until April 25, 2011 to
request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff for the class. Your
ability to share in any recovery is not affected by the decision whether
or not to serve as a lead plaintiff.
