BENEV Capital Inc. Welcomes Sean Morrison to Its Executive Team

OAKVILLE, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Aug. 6, 2013) - BENEV Capital Inc. (TSX:BEV) (the "Corporation" or "BCI") is pleased to announce the addition of Mr. Sean Morrison to the Corporation's executive team in the position of President and Chief Executive Officer. Consistent with the Corporation's strategy articulated since the installation of a new board of directors in June, 2011, the appointment of Mr. Morrison will bolster the Corporation's M&A capabilities in seeking to source, structure and complete one or more transactions designed to transform the Corporation and create meaningful value for shareholders. Mr. Morrison's appointment is effective today.

Mr. Morrison joins Mr. Lawrence Haber, who will become the Executive Chair of the Board. As Executive Chair, Mr. Haber will continue to oversee high level issues affecting the Corporation, including strategic planning and other public company and corporate issues.

Mr. Morrison has a successful track record in the M&A industry and is the founder and managing partner of Maxam Capital Corp. which focuses on structured investments in both publicly traded and private companies. Prior to founding Maxam Capital Corp., Mr. Morrison was a partner at Capital West Partners, a Vancouver-based investment banking firm. Mr. Morrison's principal focus will be on sourcing, analysing, and executing, one or more transformational transactions consistent with the Corporation's strategy. Subject to TSX approval, in connection with Mr. Morrison's appointment, a fund to be created by Maxam Capital Corp. was granted a right to invest in the Corporation for an amount up to the lesser of (i) 10% of the total issued and outstanding common equity of the Corporation (or its successor) immediately following a transformational transaction, or (ii) $10 million. Subject to adjustment, such investment shall be comprised of publicly traded common shares of the Corporation (or its successor) priced equal to the value of the common shares ascribed in the transformational transaction, failing which it shall be the 10 trading day volume weighted average price of the Corporation's common shares as quoted on a stock exchange commencing on the first trading day immediately after announcing such transformational transaction.

"I am delighted to welcome Sean Morrison to the team," Mr. Haber commented. "Mr. Morrison will be a great asset to the Corporation. I am looking forward to working with him."
