Adjusted Cost Base Allocation Following Completion of the Recent Plan of Arrangement

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - October 19, 2016) - Element Fleet Management Corp. ("Element Fleet") and ECN Capital Corp. ("ECN Capital") (collectively, the "Companies") (TSX: EFN) (TSX: ECN) today announced estimates of the adjusted cost base allocation of the Element Fleet common shares and ECN Capital common shares for Canadian income tax purposes following the recent completion of the reorganization of Element Financial Corporation ("Element"), through a statutory plan of arrangement (the "Arrangement"). Pursuant to the Arrangement, and as outlined under the heading "Material Canadian Federal Income Tax Consequences to Shareholders" in Element's Management Information Circular dated July 28, 2016 (the "Circular"), a number of steps were undertaken that led to the exchange of Element common shares for ECN Capital common shares and Element Fleet common shares.

Please note that while the Companies believe the allocation as outlined below is a reasonable allocation for Canadian income tax purposes, such allocation is not binding on either shareholders or the Canadian tax authorities, nor is this legal or tax advice. Shareholders should therefore consult their own tax advisors in light of their particular circumstances.

For purposes of the Income Tax Act (Canada), the estimated adjusted cost base to a Resident Participating Shareholder (as defined in the Circular) of each Element common share held immediately prior to completion of the Arrangement should be allocated as follows: 79.44% to the Element Fleet common share and 20.56% to the ECN Capital common share received by a Resident Participating Shareholder pursuant to the Arrangement.

As an example, if the adjusted cost base of a pre-Arrangement common share was $10.00 to a Resident Participating Shareholder, the adjusted cost base of that share would be allocated approximately as follows:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Entity                   Percentage Allocation        Adjusted Cost Base    
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Element Fleet                   79.44%                      $7.944          
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
ECN Capital                     20.56%                      $2.056          
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Total                           100.00%                     $10.00
