Extendicare Announces Appointment of New CFO

Elaine E. Everson to Replace Dylan T. Mann Upon Completion of the Sale of the U.S. Operations

MARKHAM, ON--(Marketwired - May 27, 2015) - Extendicare Inc. ("Extendicare" or the "Company") (TSX: EXE) announced today that Elaine E. Everson, currently the Company's Vice-President and Controller, will succeed Dylan T. Mann as Chief Financial Officer effective with the completion of the sale of substantially all of the Company's U.S. business (the "U.S. Sale Transaction"), which is expected to occur at the end of June 2015.

Elaine Everson has been with Extendicare in various financial roles since 1985, and has served as the Company's Vice-President and Controller since 1994. Prior to joining Extendicare, Ms. Everson worked as a Chartered Accountant in public practice with Thorne Riddell, a predecessor firm to KPMG LLP. Ms. Everson is a CPA, CA and holds a Bachelor of Mathematics degree from the University of Waterloo.

Dylan Mann has been serving as Extendicare's Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer since July 2013. Mr. Mann, who works out of our U.S. head office, and resides with his family in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, has decided to remain in the United States following the completion of the U.S. Sale Transaction.

"I want to thank Dylan for his contributions to Extendicare, especially through the challenging and complex undertaking during the past few years to separate and sell our U.S. business. I wish him much success in his future endeavours," said Tim Lukenda, President and CEO of Extendicare.

"I look forward to working with Elaine in her new capacity as CFO. Her previous experience with Extendicare is a significant asset and makes her a perfect fit for this expanded role at this time. Dylan, Elaine and I will work closely together to ensure a smooth transition of the CFO position," Lukenda added.
