Aetrium Reports Dismissal Of Pending Litigation

ST. PAUL, Minn., Sept. 16, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aetrium Incorporated (Nasdaq:ATRM) today announced dismissal of litigation brought against it by UTHE Technology Corporation. The litigation involved the 1992 sale by UTHE of one of Aetrium's independent international distributors located in Singapore to a group of the distributor's employees. The sale had been the subject of arbitration in Singapore not involving Aetrium for most of the intervening 20 years.

The litigation against Aetrium was originally filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California in 1993, stayed pending the Singapore arbitration, and revived by plaintiff in June 2012 after the arbitration completed. United States District Judge William Alsup dismissed some of plaintiff's claims in September 2012. Aetrium established through subsequent discovery that the remaining claims were also meritless, and Judge Alsup so concluded by his order entered September 9, 2013. The final judgment dismissing the litigation was filed on September 13, 2013.

"We are very pleased to have this litigation behind us," said Joseph C. Levesque, Aetrium's president and chief executive officer. "The litigation was a concern to our customers and shareholders, prompted significant defense costs, and proved to be very distracting to our normal course of business. We can now fully concentrate our attentions and resources on growing the value of the company."
