Northstar Healthcare Files Form 10 U.S. Registration Statement

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - Aug 27, 2014) - Northstar Healthcare Inc. ("Northstar" or the "Company") (TSX: NHC) today announced that it has filed a Form 10 Registration Statement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"). The filing is in anticipation of Northstar's application to list the common shares of the Company on a U.S. national exchange.

"The plan of the Company is to dual list our common shares on both the TSX and a national exchange in the United States," said Harry Fleming, President of Northstar. "Our goal is to significantly increase the liquidity of our common shares by adding a U.S. listing and thereby accessing the massive U.S. investment community," said Fleming.

The Company has the authority from its June 2014 shareholder meeting to affect a reverse stock split as necessary to meet the minimum listing requirements of the chosen U. S. exchange. The Company's plan is to list under a track that requires a $2 closing price. Management does not know what the stock price will be later this fall when the actual listing will take place, but Management will be conservative in a reverse split, if necessary, at that time.

The Form 10 Registration Statement includes detailed information about Northstar, including 2013 and 2012 US GAAP audited financial statements. Subsequent amendments to the Form 10 will be filed with the SEC.

Upon the effectiveness of the Registration Statement on Form 10, Northstar will be subject to the reporting requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and as a result will file period reports and other information with the SEC. The Registration Statement on Form 10 is available on the SEC's website at www.sec.gov and on Northstar's website at www.northstar-healthcare.com.
