Kobex Minerals Inc. Announces Intention to Terminate SEC Reporting Obligations

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Dec. 18, 2013) - Kobex Minerals Inc. (the "Company" or "Kobex") (TSX VENTURE:KXM)(OTCQB:KBXMF) - today announces that it will voluntarily file a Form 15F with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") to terminate its SEC reporting obligations and the registration of its common shares under Section 12(g) the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act").

Under SEC rules, a foreign private issuer such as the Company may deregister a class of its securities under the Exchange Act, and terminate the associated reporting obligations, if it meets certain conditions.

The Company believes that the costs associated with continuing the registration of its common shares under the Exchange Act exceed the benefits received by the Company from maintaining its registration.

The Company expects that termination of the registration of its common shares will become effective 90 days after the date of filing of the Form 15F with the SEC. However, as a result of the filing of a Form 15F, the Company's obligation to file certain reports with the SEC will be immediately suspended.

The Company will continue to meet its Canadian continuous disclosure obligations through filings with the applicable Canadian securities regulators. All of the Company's filings can be found at the System for Electronic Document Analysis and Retrieval (SEDAR) at www.sedar.com.

The termination of the SEC reporting obligations will not have an impact on the trading of the Company's securities on the TSX Venture Exchange. Its securities will no longer be quoted on the OTCQB market, but will be quoted under the same symbol on the OTC Pink market.

NEITHER TSX VENTURE EXCHANGE NOR ITS REGULATION SERVICES PROVIDER (AS THAT TERM IS DEFINED IN POLICIES OF THE TSX VENTURE EXCHANGE) ACCEPTS RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE ADEQUACY OR ACCURACY OF THIS RELEASE.
