Kobex Shareholders Warned That Kingsway's Latest Press Release Is Misleading and Irresponsible

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - November 13, 2015) - November 13, 2015 - Kobex Capital Corp. (TSX VENTURE: KXM) (OTCQB: KBXMF) (the "Company" or "Kobex") announced the serious concerns of the Board of Directors of Kobex (the "Board") regarding the misleading and irresponsible press release issued by Kingsway Financial Services Inc. ("Kingsway") earlier today.

In keeping with the pattern of incomplete and misleading public disclosure that has defined Kingsway's hostile proxy contest, Kingsway has now announced that it has the support of a "clear majority of Kobex shareholders" -- a statement that is unsupportable.

Contrary to Kingsway's press release, the preliminary results (which remain subject to audit) do not support Kingsway's public statements, but rather indicate the rejection by Kobex shareholders of the proposals advanced by Kingsway.

Kobex shareholders are cautioned that Kingsway and its representatives are not in a position to make final determinations with respect to the outcome of the special meeting of Kobex shareholders scheduled for Tuesday, November 17, 2015, given that they do not have complete information with regard to the total number of proxies deposited.

The Board strongly urges Kobex shareholders to completely disregard and place no reliance on these misleading and irresponsible public statements.

The Board reminds Kingsway of its obligations under applicable Canadian securities laws with respect to the making of intentionally misleading and irresponsible statements with respect to a publicly listed and traded company such as Kobex, which matters are taken very seriously by Kobex and the Board.

Special Meeting

The Special Meeting of Kobex Shareholders is scheduled to be held at noon (Toronto time) on Tuesday, November 17, 2015 at the offices of Stikeman Elliott LLP, 199 Bay Street, 5300 Commerce Court West, Toronto, Ontario, M5L 1B9.
