Extenway Solutions Inc. Announces Filing of Notice of Intention to Make Proposal to Creditors

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Dec. 21, 2015) - Extenway Solutions Inc. (TSX VENTURE:EY) announces the following events:

Request for Appointment of Receiver for Extenway MD Inc. by a Secured Lender

Extenway Solutions Inc. ("Extenway" or the "Company") currently operates eight hospital installations through its wholly owned subsidiary Extenway MD Inc. ("MD"). These installations were financed through term loans from Caisse Desjardins De Beauport ("Desjardins"). The Company was not current on payments under these loan agreements but had entered into a forebearance agreement waiving this default until 11 December 2015. The Company has been unable to negotiate an extension to this agreement and therefore is in default under the loan agreements.

The Company has been advised that Desjardins has obtained court approval to exercise its rights as a secured creditor and appoint Raymond Chabot Inc. as receiver of MD. Raymond Chabot Inc. is now responsible for the operation of the system within those hospitals.

Interested parties may contact Dominic Deslandes, CPA CA Cirp Syndic of Raymond Chabot Inc. at (514) 393-4725 or deslandes.dominic@rcgt.com.

Impact on Extenway Solutions Inc.

Desjardins did not request a receiver for Extenway. However the hospital installations within MD were the major operating asset of the Company. While the Company was in advanced discussions to raise financing, losing control of the hospital installations will effectively terminate those negotiations. Consequently, while retaining significant intellectual property, Extenway would not have cash to continue operations.

Therefore the Company and its subsidiary Extenway Medical Inc. ("Medical") have filed a notice of intention to make a proposal ("NOI") to its creditors in accordance with the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act. PricewaterhouseCoopers Inc. ("PwC" or the "Trustee") has been retained as trustee. Extenway will enter into an agreement with MD's receiver to provide it services to facilitate the continued operation of the hospital contracts. In addition Extenway, subject to court confirmation, has entered into an agreement to obtain debtor-in-possession financing ("DIP") to maintain operations throughout the NOI. Finally, in addition to its legal responsibilities PwC will assist the company in making a proposal to its creditors, which will be submitted to them at a meeting to be held at a date yet to be determined. In the meantime, the company will benefit from a stay with regards to debt payments and any creditor proceedings.
