Sientra settles Silimed lawsuit for $10M

Sientra, Inc. agreed to pay $10 million to settle a lawsuit involving Silimed-Indústria de Implantes Ltda.

The company will pay $9 million within 30 days and the remaining $1 million by July 2018. Sientra will also be required to pay up to a further $5 million to Silimed-Indústria under certain circumstances.

The settlement does not represent an admission of liability.
