MISSISSAUGA, ON, July 9 /CNW/ - Atomic Energy of Canada Limited confirms
that it has received an arbitration notice from MDS regarding the Maple
project and the Interim and Long Term Supply Agreement between MDS and AECL.
In addition to receiving the arbitration notice, AECL has been served with a
statement of claim naming both AECL and the Government of Canada as
AECL believes that it has met and continues to meet its obligations under
its agreements with MDS Nordion. AECL will therefore vigorously defend both
the arbitration and the civil action. As this matter is now before the courts,
AECL will refrain from making any additional comments on this matter.
