    • In a regulatory filing, Biomet (NYSE:ZMH) discloses that the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) informed the company on March 13 that it was extending the Deferred Prosecution Agreement (DPA) and the independent compliance monitor's appointment for an additional year.
    • The DPA was originally signed in 2012 for a three-year term in response to possible violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (RICO). Pursuant to the DPA, the DOJ agreed to defer prosecution of Biomet in connection with the matters provided Biomet satisfied its obligations under the agreement. An independent compliance monitor was appointed to review the company's adherence to the DPA, particularly as it related to its international sales practices.
    • In October 2013 the company became aware of certain alleged improprieties pertaining to its operations in Mexico and Brazil, including some that predated the DPA. Based upon the results of its internal investigation, Biomet terminated, suspended or disciplined the employees and executives involved. The company discussed the matters with the DOJ and Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in April 2014. On July 2, 2014 the SEC issued a subpoena to Biomet requiring it to produce certain relevant documents. The DOJ investigation is ongoing.
    • If the DOJ determines that Biomet's activities in Brazil and Mexico breached the DPA, then it could bring further actions against the firm. The company continues to cooperate fully with authorities.
