Aetrium Prevails At Court Hearing; Court Denies Plaintiffs' Motion For Temporary Injunction

ST. PAUL, Minn., Dec. 20, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aetrium Incorporated (Nasdaq:ATRM) today announced that on December 18, 2012, the presiding Judge for the Ramsey County District Court, Second Judicial District, State of Minnesota, issued an Order denying the plaintiffs group of dissident shareholders' motion for a temporary injunction. The plaintiffs dissident shareholders group, headed by Jeffrey Eberwein, initiated this lawsuit on November 29, 2012, seeking declaratory and injunctive relief relating to the company's special meeting of shareholders held on November 26, 2012 on the demand of the Eberwein group.

"More importantly, we will continue to move forward with our initiatives to respond effectively to the very challenging times still prevailing in our industry and to position ourselves to take best advantage of the opportunities that will present themselves when and as our industry turns back up to better times."
