Nordion Provides Update On MAPLE Arbitration Costs Proceedings

Nordion Inc. (TSX: NDN) (NYSE: NDZ) today provided an update regarding proceedings to determine the potential award of costs from Atomic Energy of Canada Limited (AECL) associated with Nordion’s arbitration with AECL over the cancelled MAPLE project.

On September 10, 2012, Nordion stated that in the arbitration tribunal’s decision, the arbitrators had yet to decide on the issue of arbitration-related costs, and requested that Nordion and AECL make submissions within 30 days. Nordion had previously indicated that it may be responsible for a portion of AECL’s costs, which could be material.

Nordion and AECL have agreed upon a schedule with the tribunal to determine the allocation of arbitration-related costs. The parties are expected to make submissions with regard to costs, following which the tribunal is expected to hold proceedings to hear both parties during the Company’s second fiscal quarter of 2013. Nordion expects to receive a decision thereafter. The Company intends to provide an update on this issue as more information becomes available.
