Nordion And Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories Settle Claims

Nordion Inc. (TSX: NDN) (NYSE: NDZ), a leading provider of products and services to the global health science market, has settled claims filed against Nordion by Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories Ltd. and certain affiliated companies (“Dr. Reddy’s”). Details of the settlement are confidential.

During fiscal 2009, Nordion was served with a Complaint from Dr. Reddy’s related to repeat study and mitigation costs of $10 million and lost profits of $70 million. This legal action, commenced by Dr. Reddy’s in New Jersey, related to certain bioequivalence studies carried out by the former MDS Pharma Services business unit from January 1, 2000 to December 31, 2004.

The settlement is expected to result in a loss of US$1.4 million for the Company after taking into account financial reserves maintained by the Company in relation to the claim. The settlement, most of which is covered by insurance, will result in a net cash outflow of US$17 million that includes insurance proceeds received to date. Nordion intends to report these items in its quarterly reporting for its second fiscal quarter of 2013.
