MARIETTA, Ga., Feb. 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- MiMedx Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: MDXG), the leading regenerative medicine company utilizing human amniotic tissue and patent-protected processes to develop and market advanced products and therapies for the Wound Care, Surgical, Orthopedic, Spinal, Sports Medicine, Ophthalmic and Dental sectors of healthcare, announced that it has voluntarily withdrawn its tortious interference lawsuit against Organogenesis, Inc., without prejudice.  MiMedx has expressly reserved all of its rights and remedies to pursue any and all claims against Organogenesis in the future, including those that were brought in the Company's original complaint.

The Company continues to believe that Organogenesis has engaged in misconduct against MiMedx.   However, the Company has determined that, rather than expend its time and resources in a protracted litigation with Organogenesis at this juncture, the Company's efforts would be better spent continuing its investigation into the Organogenesis activities against MiMedx involving not only the Veterans Administration ("VA"), but also other governmental agencies as well as MiMedx customers. MiMedx believes that proceeding in that fashion will be more efficient because it will enable the Company to address any and all improper conduct engaged in by Organogenesis against MiMedx at one time.
