Kobex Confirms Shareholders Meeting is Proceeding on November 17, 2015; Court Rejects Kingsway's Petition for Orders in Connection With Meeting

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - November 10, 2015) - Kobex Capital Corp. (TSX VENTURE: KXM) (the "Company" or "Kobex") today announced that the Supreme Court of British Columbia (the "Court") has dismissed a Petition brought by Kingsway Financial Services Inc. ("Kingsway") in regard to certain orders with respect to the upcoming special meeting of Kobex scheduled to be held on November 17, 2015 (the "Meeting"), and adjourned consideration of the balance of the relief sought by Kingsway in its Petition to a later date. The Meeting will proceed as scheduled.

Kingsway, which is currently engaged in a proxy contest to remove the board of directors of Kobex, had commenced the Petition in the Court against Sprott Inc. and Kobex. The Petition contained certain allegations regarding a trade in Kobex shares, the shareholder rights plan dated October 8, 2015 between Kobex and Computershare Investor Services Inc. (the "Rights Plan") and the conduct of the Meeting. The Court dismissed orders sought by Kingsway in the Petition, among others, to appoint an independent chair for the Meeting, and in the alternative for an adjournment of the Meeting.

Kobex believes that the balance of the relief sought by Kingsway in the Petition is without merit and intends to continue to defend against it vigorously.

Kobex has also amended its Rights Plan effective immediately as of the date hereof. The amendments, which extend certain time periods under the Rights Plan, afford the Board of Directors of the Company the ability to continue to investigate the matters raised in the Petition, to consider any additional information and evidence that may be subsequently received, and to conduct a final determination with respect to application of the Rights Plan, all in light of the best interests of the Company. A copy of the amending agreement has been filed under Kobex's profile on SEDAR at
