(TSX VENTURE:AHI) ("Agility Health" or the "Company"), a leading provider of physical rehabilitation and software services that benefit patients, healthcare providers and employers, has learned that summary judgment has been issued in favor of the financial advisory firm in the March 7, 2013 lawsuit filed by the advisory firm against one of the Company's subsidiaries, Agility Health, LLC, as described in the Company's August 28, 2013 Information Circular. The advisory firm is seeking a commission worth approximately US$900,000, together with its attorneys' fees. The lower court is expected to rule on the amount of damages and enter a judgment against Agility Health, LLC sometime during the next four to eight months.

The Company's management has been advised by legal counsel that the appeals process will likely take more than a year to complete.
