BRIDGEPORT, Conn., Sept. 13, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Committee to Restore Stockholder Value and Integrity for Clean Diesel (the "Committee") today announced that stockholders have demanded Clean Diesel Technologies, Inc. hold a Special Stockholders' Meeting as soon as possible. Per the Clean Diesel bylaws, the Committee made the request on behalf of shareholders representing more than 25% of Clean Diesel's outstanding stock.
These stockholders have decided that the current members of the Board of Directors, who have voted to reverse merge Clean Diesel Technologies, Inc. ("CDTI") into Catalytic Solutions, Inc., a virtually bankrupt company, need to be replaced immediately so that CDTI can pursue sensible business alternatives. The Committee and these stockholders reaffirm their dissatisfaction with CDTI's current Board and management, who continue to put stockholder value at risk with this proposed merger and other questionable activities.
The Committee's goal is to restore stockholder confidence and value to Clean Diesel Technologies, Inc. The Committee encourages all shareholders to consider this information and other materials filed with the SEC. With a new Board, the Committee expects Clean Diesel to move rapidly ahead in a positive direction to restore the confidence of investors and customers.
On Behalf of the Committee to Restore Stockholder Value and Integrity for Clean Diesel,
