VANCOUVER, June 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - Neovasc Inc. ("Neovasc" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: NVCN) (TSXV: NVC) has today been made aware of a lawsuit filed by CardiAQ Valve Technologies in the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts including certain allegations relating to Neovasc's transcatheter mitral valve technology, including the Tiara™ device.

The complaint has not yet been served on the Company.  If CardiAQ does serve the complaint, Neovasc intends to vigorously defend itself.  Based on its understanding of the unproven allegations, the Company believes the lawsuit to be groundless and without merit.
