Orthofix concludes bone growth stimulator investigation Orthofix International announced that it has resolved all matters related to the investigation of its bone growth stimulation business. Consistent with the agreement in principle that the Company previously announced in May 2011, the Company will pay approximately $43 million to resolve all civil and criminal matters, which included a plea to obstruction of a June 2008 federal audit. These charges were previously recorded in the first quarter of 2011. As part of the resolution, the Court imposed a five-year term of probation, during which the Company must continue to comply with the terms of its previously-executed Corporate Integrity Agreement. This final settlement also includes the resolution of a related qui tam complaint filed against the Company, which remains pending against several of its competitors.
