DANBURY, CT --(Marketwired - August 11, 2014) -  Biodel Inc. (NASDAQ: BIOD)
today reported financial results for the third fiscal quarter ended June 30,
Portfolio highlights since last fiscal quarter:  
--  Announcement of positive top line data from Study 3-152, a Phase 2a 
clinical trial comparing Biodel's proprietary concentrated insulin 
formulation BIOD-531 to Humalog Mix 75/25 and Humulin R U-500 in 
patients with type 2 diabetes with moderate insulin resistance; BIOD-531 
demonstrated superiority over both comparators with respect to lower 
glucose responses following standardized meal challenges. 
--  Continued progress on the glucagon rescue Glucagon Emergency Management 
(GEM) program, including filing an IND and completion of a formative 
human factors study demonstrating successful usage of the auto-    reconstitution device with little to no training; initiation of clinical 
trial and manufacture of commercial registration lots planned for 
calendar 4Q14. 
--  Presentation of four abstracts at the 74th Scientific Sessions of the 
American Diabetes Association in San Francisco, California, June 13-17, 
2014 and acceptance of two abstracts for presentation at the 50th Annual 
Meeting of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes in Vienna, 
Austria, September 16-19, 2014.
--  Implementation of an at-the-market facility for the sale of up to $14 
million of the company's common stock and an equity purchase commitment 
for an additional $15 million of the company's common stock. 
Dr. Errol De Souza, president and chief executive officer of Biodel, stated:
"We have made rapid progress in achieving multiple significant milestones
in all of our programs this quarter. On the heels of impressive Phase 1 results
earlier this year, we rapidly advanced BIOD-531 into multiple Phase 2 trials
and are pleased to report that BIOD-531 demonstrates superiority versus
Humalog Mix 75/25 and Humulin R U-500 prandial/basal insulin on postprandial
glucose responses. This morning we announced positive data from the BIOD-531
Study 3-152 meal study and are working with the FDA to get agreement on pivotal
trial design and look forward to updating you on the further advancement of
BIOD-531. We continue to advance the GEM program with the filing of the IND and
finalizing the design of the device in anticipation of manufacturing
registration lots towards the end of the year. We look forward to reporting on
additional key milestones in 2014, such as the results of our second meal study
with BIOD-531 and the initiation of a GEM clinical study."

that could cause actual results, performance or achievements to differ
materially from those described or implied in the forward-looking statements,

any such collaborations into which we enter, or our ability to commercialize
