Diversinet Receives Notice From AllOne of Intention to Terminate License

TORONTO, Jan. 20 /CNW/ - Diversinet Corp. (TSX Venture: DIV, OTCBB: DVNTF), a leading provider of secure application platforms for the mobile world, announced today that it has received notice from AllOne Mobile Corporation ("AllOne") and AllOne Health Group, Inc. ("AHG") that it has commenced a legal proceeding in Pennsylvania seeking the termination of the September 2008 license and revenue sharing agreement (the "License Agreement") upon payment of $3,000,000.

AllOne and AHG have asked the courts for a declaration of the parties' rights and obligations under the License Agreement. AllOne and AHG claim that their liability under the License Agreement is limited to $3,000,000. The complaint provides that, should the court provide judgment in AllOne and AHG's favor, AllOne would pay $3,000,000 to Diversinet and terminate the License Agreement.

Diversinet is seeking counsel's advice and will review all options and available remedies. Diversinet believes that the amounts due under the License Agreement, if terminated at this time, are substantially greater than AllOne and AHG's claim.

In September 2008, Diversinet entered into the License Agreement with AllOne, a wholly owned subsidiary of AHG, which in turn is a wholly owned subsidiary of Hospital Service Association of Northeastern Pennsylvania ("HSA") to cross license certain software and share revenues from the worldwide sales. HSA currently owns 6,956,152 common shares of Diversinet, representing approximately 14.5% of the issued and outstanding common shares of Diversinet.
