Hemagen  Announces Filing of Form 15 to Suspend SEC Reporting Obligations
Columbia, MD., January 30, 2013 – Hemagen Diagnostics, Inc. (“Company”) (OTCBB: HMGN) a biotechnology company that develops, manufactures, and markets approximately 70 Food and Drug Administration cleared proprietary medical diagnostic test kits and components worldwide, announced today that it has filed a Form 15 with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") to voluntarily delist the Company's securities and thus suspend  the Company’s public reporting obligations under the SEC Act of 1934.
Upon the filing of the Form 15, the Company's obligation to file periodic and current reports with the SEC, including Forms 10-K, 10-Q and 8-K, will be immediately suspended.
Hemagen expects the registration of its common stock will be terminated 90 days after such filing, in accordance with SEC regulations. Upon termination of the registration of its common stock, the Company's securities will not be eligible for trading on any national exchange or the OTC Bulletin Board.  Shareholders can call Hemagen at 800-436-2436 with questions about trading in the Company’s securities.
"The Company's board of directors approved the filing of the Form 15 after careful consideration of the  advantages and disadvantages of continuing its SEC reporting obligations," said Hemagen President & Chief Executive Officer William P. Hales. "We believe that  this is a positive step for Hemagen.  Suspending the SEC reporting obligations will allow the Company to significantly lower operating costs and management time associated with SEC reporting and Sarbanes Oxley compliance, and will allow us to allocate those resources elsewhere.  In addition, it will also allow us to keep competitive business information confidential and allow us greater flexibility in exploring corporate transactions.  We will continue to focus on strengthening our high quality product offerings and building shareholder value.”

Forward looking statements may be identified by words such as “estimates”, “anticipates”, “projects”, “plans”, “expects”, “intends”, “believes”, “should” and similar expressions or the negative versions thereof and by the context in which they are used. Such statements, whether express or implied, are based on current expectations of the company and speak only as of the date made. Reliance should not be placed on forward-looking statements because they involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause actual results, performance or achievements to differ materially from those expressed or implied.
