Scott+Scott, LLC to File Lead Plaintiff Motion in Class Against Diebold Inc. Today

Scott Firm Filed Initial Complaint on December 13, 2005; Clients Allege a Vote
of No Confidence in Diebold Voting Machines.

COLCHESTER, Conn., Feb. 13 — Scott+Scott, LLC
(http://www.scott-scott.com
), which initiated on December 13, 2005 the first
securities fraud class action against Diebold, Inc. (“Diebold” or the
“Company”) (NYSE: DBD) and certain of its officers and directors, will file a
Motion for Lead Plaintiff and Lead Counsel this Monday, February 13, 2006. The
action is pending in the United States District Court for the Northern
District of Ohio (No. 05CV2873). The Class is defined in the complaint drafted
by Scott+Scott as those who purchased Diebold securities between October 22,
2003, and September 21, 2005, inclusive (the “Class Period”). However, any
purchaser of Diebold securities can contact the firm as the Class Period may
change as information is revealed. Diebold engages in the development,
manufacture, sale, and service of systems, software, and various products used
to equip bank facilities such as automatic teller machines.
On February 7, 2006, M.R. Kropko, an Associated Press business writer
quoted Diebold CEO Thomas Swidarski as stating, “there’s pieces and aspects of
each of our businesses that I’m going to be looking at with a very critical
eye in terms of what the future holds for us.” Kropko also wrote in his
article that “Diebold’s former chairman and CEO, Walden O’Dell, resigned Dec
12 after several years of controversy surrounding Diebold’s touch-screen
voting machines and O’Dell’s financial contributions to President Bush’s
campaign.”
If you wish to discuss this action or have questions concerning this
notice or your rights, please contact Scott+Scott for more information.

questions regarding participation and rights and assist with other services

The complaint alleges that defendants violated provisions of the United
States securities laws, causing artificial inflation of the Company’s stock
price. According to the complaint, during the Class Period, the Company lacked
a credible state of internal controls and corporate compliance and remained
unable to assure the quality and working order of its voting machine products.
It is further alleged that the Company’s false and misleading statements
served to conceal the dimensions and scope of internal problems at the
Company, impacting product quality, strategic planning, forecasting and
guidance and culminating in false representations of astonishingly low and
incredibly inaccurate restructuring charges for the 2005 fiscal year, which
grossly understated the true costs and problems defendants faced to
restructure the Company. The complaint also alleges over $2.7 million of
insider trading proceeds obtained by individual defendants during the Class
Period.
Finally, investors learned the truth about the adverse impact of the
Company’s alleged defective and deficient inventory-related controls and
systems on Diebold’s financial performance. As a result of defendants’
shocking news and disclosures of September 21, 2005, the price of Diebold
shares plunged 15.5% on unusually high volume, falling from $44.37 per share
on September 20, 2005, to $37.47 per share on September 21, 2005, for a
one-day drop of $6.90 per share on volume of 6.1 million shares — nearly
eight times the average daily trading volume. The stock is currently trading
at about $39.04.

The plaintiff is represented by Scott+Scott, LLC, a firm with significant
experience in prosecuting investor class actions. The firm dedicates itself to
client communication and satisfaction and currently is litigating major
