A2 Milk settles court dispute with Lion in Australia

A2 Milk settles court dispute with Lion in Australia

By Tina Morrison

Dec. 7 (BusinessDesk) - A2 Milk, which markets milk with a protein variant said to have health benefits, has settled a court case in Australia with its rival Lion Group.

A2 faced a legal challenge in Australia from Lion over the science behind health-related claims about the milk. A2 had taken Lion to court over its milk brand's use of A2 protein claims, seeking an injunction and damages. Last month, a2 said the court hearing in the Australian Federal Court had been vacated from November until the New Year.

"A settlement has been reached in respect of the legal dispute," a2 said in a statement to the stock exchange today. "The parties have mutually agreed not to proceed with their cases against each other. The terms of the settlement are confidential."

A2 said the parties are "very satisfied" with the outcome and will remain focused on building and maintaining the strength of their individual brands.

A2 shares last traded at $8.08, and are the best performing stock on the benchmark S&P/NZX 50 Index this year, having gained 279 percent.
