Nobilis Health Corp. Announces Notification of NYSE MKT Listing Deficiency

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - Jan 7, 2016) - Nobilis Health Corp. ("Nobilis" or the "Company") (TSX: NHC) (NYSE MKT: HLTH) announced today that the Company received a letter from NYSE Regulation, Inc. (the "NYSE") stating that the NYSE has determined that the Company is not in compliance with Sections 134 and 1101 of the NYSE MKT LLC's Company Guide (the "Company Guide") due to the Company's failure to timely file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2015 (the "3Q 10-Q") with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"). The letter also states that the Company's failure to timely file its 3Q 10-Q is a material violation of its listing agreement with the NYSE and, therefore, pursuant to Section 1003(d) of the Company Guide, the NYSE is authorized to suspend and, unless prompt corrective action is taken, remove the Company's securities from the NYSE MKT (the "Exchange").

The NYSE has informed the Company that, in order to maintain its listing on the Exchange, the Company must, by February 5, 2015, submit a plan of compliance (the "Plan") addressing how it intends to regain compliance with Sections 134 and 1101 of the Company Guide by May 23, 2016 (the "Plan Period"). If the Company's Plan is accepted by the NYSE, then the Company will be able to continue its listing during the Plan Period, during which time it will be subject to periodic review to determine whether it is making progress consistent with the Plan. If the Company's Plan is not accepted by the NYSE, then the Company will be subject to delisting proceedings. Furthermore, if the Plan is accepted by the NYSE, but the Company is not in compliance with the continued listing standards of the Company Guide by November 23, 2016, or if the Company does not make progress consistent with the Plan during the Plan Period, then the NYSE staff will initiate delisting proceedings as appropriate. Should the Company anticipate being unable to file its 3Q 10-Q by February 5, 2016, the Company will submit the Plan by February 5, 2016.
