STOCKHOLM, Sweden --(Business Wire)--

Regulatory News:

On February 8, 2013, a group of shareholders submitted a request in writing to the Board of Directors of Diamyd Medical that the Board convene an extraordinary General Meeting to address their proposal that Diamyd Medical enter into immediate liquidation. The shareholders claimed to represent 8,883,351 Series B shares in Diamyd, corresponding to about 21 percent of the votes and 30 percent of the total number of shares.

In addition to the proposed liquidation, the group of shareholders proposes that the General Meeting elect a new Board of Directors, that the company change its name to Diamyd Sverige AB (publ) and that the General Meeting submit instructions to the Board to establish a wholly owned subsidiary, which is to have the same number of shares as Diamyd and only one class of share. Diamyd should transfer all of its share holdings and about SEK 40,000,000 in cash to this subsidiary.

Due to this request, the Board of Directors has decided to convene an Extraordinary General Meeting on Wednesday, March 13, 2013. Summons will be published in Post- och Inrikes Tidningar on February 13, 2013. The summons and the letter from the shareholders is available at Diamyd's website,
