Orthofix International Comments On Judge's Ruling

Orthofix International N.V., (NASDAQ:OFIX) (the Company) commented today on the federal court’s second rejection of the previously signed plea agreement between the Department of Justice and Orthofix Inc., a subsidiary of the Company, to resolve the bone growth stimulation criminal investigation.

At a hearing yesterday the court rejected the plea agreement emphasizing certain institutional concerns with binding the court’s sentencing discretion in such a proceeding. The court invited the Government and Orthofix to provide to the court a joint recommendation on sentencing which would not be binding on the court.

"The Company and the government stand behind their agreements and continue to discuss a resolution of the matter that will be acceptable to the court," said President and Chief Executive Officer Robert Vaters. "We remain confident that this matter will be resolved amicably and in a manner that is in the best interests of our shareholders."
