Extendicare Provides Update Regarding Its Engagement With Oxford Park Group

MARKHAM, ON--(Marketwired - November 16, 2015) - Extendicare Inc. ("Extendicare" or the "Company") (TSX: EXE) acknowledges the receipt earlier today of materials from Oxford Park Group ("Oxford Park"), requesting a special meeting of Extendicare's shareholders for the purpose of reconstituting Extendicare's board of directors. Oxford Park's principals are John Bitove and Phil Evershed. The Company will review these materials and will respond in due course.

In the short time that Oxford Park has been a shareholder of the Company, Extendicare's management team has met with Messrs. Bitove and Evershed on a number of occasions, and the parties have exchanged written communications, in which Extendicare invited Oxford Park's comments and suggestions. In these communications, the Company has outlined its strategy to generate growing and sustainable shareholder value by delivering care across the health care continuum to meet the needs of a growing seniors' population across Canada. Investors can learn more about Extendicare's strategy by going to www.extendicare.com/investors/events-presentations/ and selecting Extendicare Investor Presentation -- Oct. 2015.

Year-to-date, Extendicare has been one of the best performing stocks on the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") -- during this period the Company's share price increased by more than 35% while the TSX has declined by approximately 10%. Over the past number of months, analysts who cover Extendicare have increased their target prices on a number of occasions. The Company believes this is indicative of the success of Extendicare's strategy, and management remains focused on executing on its plan and driving further, sustainable value creation for all Extendicare shareholders.

The Company continues to be advised by RBC Capital Markets and Bennett Jones LLP and has engaged D.F. King and Longview Communications.
