NuVasive Seeks Acquisitions

NuVasive, Inc. (NasdaqGS:NUVA) is looking for acquisitions. Quentin Blackford, Exexcutive Vise President and Chief financial Officer of NuVasive states, "At the same time we want to balance that with our appetite to be acquisitive.

We want to look at those opportunities and ensure that we have the potential to do it."

NuVasive Announces Successful Appeal of Medtronic Verdict

NuVasive, Inc. announced that the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit overturned the damages award in the Company's ongoing patent lawsuit with Medtronic Sofamor Danek USA, Inc. and Warsaw Orthopedic, Inc. The appeal challenged a September 2011 jury verdict in the first phase of the litigation between NuVasive and Medtronic. The jury found that the three remaining patents at issue in the appeal were infringed awarding total monetary damages of $660,000 to NuVasive and approximately $102 million to Medtronic, which included lost profits, the sale of ancillary or 'convoyed' products and royalties. On March 2, 2015, the three Judge panel of the Court of Appeals issued a unanimous decision upholding the jury's finding of liability as to all patents, but overturning the damage award against NuVasive as improper. Significantly, the Court of Appeals held that the damages award was erroneous because Medtronic is not permitted to recover damages for lost profits or for the sale of convoyed products. Absent further proceedings on appeal, the case will be returned to the District Court for further proceedings to determine a proper damage award based solely on a reasonable royalty. The timing of a retrial to determine the new damages amount is difficult to predict, but could occur later in 2015.
