(the "Company") (TSX: MIC) announced today acceptance by the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "TSX") of the Company's Notice of Intention to Make a Normal Course Issuer Bid ("NCIB"). Pursuant to the NCIB, Genworth Canada may, if considered advisable, purchase through the facilities of the TSX or through other permitted means (including through other published markets), from time to time over the next 12 months, up to an aggregate of 4,746,504 of its issued and outstanding common shares (the "Common Shares"), being approximately 5% of the Common Shares as of April 22, 2014.

Purchases may commence through the TSX on May 5, 2014 and will conclude on the earlier of the date on which purchases under the bid have been completed and May 4, 2015. Daily purchases under the NCIB will be limited to a maximum of 38,776 Common Shares, other than purchases made in compliance with the provisions of the block purchase exemption of the TSX rules and purchases from Genworth Financial, Inc., the Company's majority shareholder, and its affiliates (collectively, "Genworth Financial").
