Date:7/8/2009

the cost of building a new reactor (hundreds of millions of dollars) or refurbishing the (National Research Universal) NRU (also hundreds of millions of dollars according to a representative of Natural Resources Canada).

Other Longer-Term Supply Alternatives

In addition to MAPLE, MDS Nordion will continue to examine other supply alternatives. On June 15, 2009, MDS Nordion announced an agreement with the Karpov Institute of Physical Chemistry in Russia to study the feasibility of the Karpov Institute providing the Company with a viable and reliable supply of Molybdenum-99 (Mo-99) for the global nuclear medicine market. And on April 28, 2009, MDS Nordion announced an agreement with TRIUMF, Canada's national laboratory for particle and nuclear physics, to study the feasibility of producing a viable and reliable supply of photo fission-based Mo-99.

Financial Impact

As previously disclosed, the financial impact of this extended interruption is expected to reduce MDS Nordion's adjusted EBITDA by approximately US$4 million per month.
