Diversified Private Equity Corp. announces special meeting



    TORONTO, May 28 /CNW/ - Diversified Private Equity Corp. (the "Company")
announced today that its Board of Directors has called a special meeting of
shareholders on July 20, 2009 to consider and vote upon a proposal to redeem
all of the Company's outstanding Class A Shares on March 15, 2010, being the
next annual year end of the Company, in advance of its scheduled redemption
date of March 15, 2012.

PEQ.
