agreement ("Agreement") with certain subsidiaries of IMS Health Incorporated
("IMS Health").

Under the Agreement, IMS  Health has agreed to  purchase substantially all  of 
the intellectual  property, software,  customer  contracts and  certain  other 
assets of Diversinet for $3,500,000. An amount equal to one-half of the  sale 
proceeds will be deposited with an independent escrow agent to be available to
satisfy indemnity claims  by IMS Health,  if any, made  prior to the  proposed 
winding-up described below. Certain employees of Diversinet have been  offered 
employment by IMS Health, subject  to closing of the transaction  contemplated 
by the Agreement. The closing is subject to customary conditions precedent at
closing, including  Diversinet  shareholder approval.  Shareholders  will  be 
asked to  approve  the  transaction  at the  annual  and  special  meeting  of 
shareholders ("AGM"),  scheduled  for  September  11,  2013.  Holders  of  an 
aggregate of appropriately 38% of the outstanding common shares of Diversinet,
including shareholders  who  are  Directors and  their  respective  affiliated 
companies, have agreed with IMS Health to vote in favour of the transaction.

Under the  Agreement,  IMS  Health is  entitled  to  a break  fee  in  certain 
circumstances, including a $750,000 payment upon the acceptance by  Diversinet

Furthermore, the  Board will  be proposing  the voluntary  winding up  of  the 
Company pursuant  to  the  Business Corporations  Act  (Ontario).  This  will 
involve the appointment  of a liquidator  to discontinue the  business of  the 
Company and  to  satisfy all  claims  and  obligations and  to  distribute  to 
shareholders, on  a pro  rata basis,  the remaining  funds and  assets of  the 
Company. At  the  AGM,  shareholders will  be  asked  to approve  a  Plan  of 
Liquidation and  Distribution  to  take  all necessary  steps  to  effect  the 
voluntary winding up of the Company. A one time distribution to  shareholders 
is not expected  before early 2014.  While there  is no guarantee  as to  the 
amount of  the  shareholder  distribution,  Diversinet  currently  expects  to 
distribute a per share amount in the range of $0.05 to $0.065 based on  recent 
estimates of anticipated claims and obligations to be settled.

Both the approval by  shareholders of the sale  transaction and the  voluntary 
winding up of the Company will require the approval of two thirds of the votes
cast at  the  AGM.  Shareholders  will  receive  additional  details  on  the 
transaction contemplated  by  the Agreement  and  winding up  process  in  the 
management information circular to be sent to shareholders as part of the  AGM 

The Company is also delisting its common shares from the TSX Venture  Exchange 
effective August  13,  2013. Trading  of  the Company's  common  shares  will 
continue for a transitional period prior to the wind up, which is expected  to 
start on or about September  16, 2013, on the  OTCQB under the trading  symbol
