Medical" or the "Company"), a medical device company engaged through its subsidiaries in the research, development, manufacture and sale of innovative products for diabetes treatment and drug delivery, announced today that it has signed an agreement for a standby equity purchase agreement ("SEDA") with YA Global Investments L.P. ("YA"), a fund managed by Yorkville Advisors, LLC ("Yorkville"), whereby D. Medical would have the option, at its sole discretion, to issue and sell up to US$10 million of its ordinary shares to YA over the course of 24 months (extendable for another US$10 million over a period of additional 24 months).

Under the SEDA, D. Medical would be able to sell, and YA would be obligated to buy, up to US$500,000 of D. Medical's ordinary shares in any ten-day period. The ordinary shares sold under the SEDA would be purchased at a 3% discount to the lowest market price during the ten-day period, subject to Tel-Aviv Stock Exchange Ltd. ("TASE") limitations with respect to a minimum price. The SEDA would not prevent D. Medical from exploring and entering into other potential financing agreements. The SEDA would also be subject to the effectiveness of a shelf prospectus in Israel (which is not expected to be filled prior to August 2011) and the rules and regulations of the Israeli Securities Authority and TASE . Under the SEDA, D. Medical undertook to pay YA a commitment fee of 2%.

"As we move forward with the process of transferring the manufacturing of all of our "Spring" branded products to China and prepare to introduce and promote them in various target markets - including the United States, Canada, Europe, Mexico and the BRIC countries of Brazil, Russia, India and China - the SEDA will provide D. Medical with the flexibility to draw capital in an amount and at the time of our choosing. This will place the Company in a more comfortable position for pursuing our commercial development plans and provide a safety net to mitigate any uncertainties that may occur on our way to reaching our goals," said Efri Argaman, D. Medical's Chief Executive Officer.

"We are excited to be investing in D. Medical, an exciting innovator in the insulin-delivery device market and leader in the Israeli medical device sector," said Dr. Michael J. Nowak, Managing Director and Head of the Healthcare Group at Yorkville.
