Kingsway Grants Exemption from Tax Benefit Preservation Plan

TORONTO, Nov. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - (TSX:KFS, NYSE:KFS) Kingsway Financial Services Inc. ("Kingsway" or the "Company") today announced that its Board of Directors (the "Board") has received and granted exemption requests under its tax benefit preservation plan (the "Plan").  One exemption request was granted to Joseph Stilwell, a member of the board of directors, and the other exemption request was granted to Long Meadow Holdings, LP ("Long Meadow").

The Plan was implemented September 28, 2010 to protect the value of the Company's net operating losses (the "NOLs") accumulated in the Company's United States subsidiaries. While the Plan is designed to penalize the economic interests of any person or group which acquires 5% or more of the Company's outstanding common shares without approval of the Board, it also provides for a limited grandfathering provision for existing 5% plus shareholders of the Company.

Mr. Stilwell beneficially owns 18.4% of the common shares of Kingsway and is eligible to submit exemption requests through the grandfathering provision of the Plan.  An exemption to purchase up to an additional 2% of shares on the open market was received by the Company on September 27, 2012.

Long Meadow currently owns roughly 3.4% of the common shares of Kingsway and is an investment partnership managed by Long Meadow Investors, LLC.  An exemption to purchase up to an additional 3.6% of shares on the open market was received by the Company on November 13, 2012.

The full Plan is available for review on the Company's website.
