Nobilis Updates Delay in Filing of Unaudited Interim Financial Statements

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - Dec 8, 2015) - Nobilis Health Corp. (NYSE MKT: HLTH) (TSX: NHC) ("Nobilis" or the "Company") previously announced that due to its new auditor having not completed their quarterly review procedures, it would not be in a position, by the filing deadline, to file its unaudited interim financial statements for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 (the "Financial Statements") and the related management's discussion and analysis ("MD&A") and related CEO and CFO certificates. It remains uncertain as to when the Company will be able to finalize its Financial Statements and related disclosures.

As previously announced, the Company continues to work with its auditor to resolve certain non-cash accounting matters and opening balance sheet valuations related to business combinations.

The Company has made and the Ontario Securities Commission, as principal regulator for the Company, has approved an application under National Policy 12-203 - Cease Trade Orders for Continuous Disclosure Defaults ("NP 12-203") requesting that a management cease trade order be imposed in respect of this late filing rather than an issuer cease trade order. The issuance of a management cease trade order generally does not affect the ability of persons who have not been directors, officers or insiders of the Company to trade in their securities. The Ontario Securities Commission issued the management cease trade order on Friday, December 4, 2015.

The Company confirms that it will satisfy the provisions of the alternative information guidelines under NP 12-203 by issuing bi-weekly default status reports in the form of news releases for so long as it remains in default of the filing requirements to file its Financial Statements and MD&A within the prescribed period of time. The Company confirms that there have been no failures with respect to the Company fulfilling its stated intention of satisfying the requirements of the alternative information guidelines and further confirms that there is no other material information relating to the status of the default and its affairs that has not been generally disclosed.
