EXCO Resources, Inc. (NYSE:XCO) ("EXCO") today announced that it has commenced mailing definitive proxy materials in connection with its upcoming special meeting of shareholders, which will take place on Monday, November 16, 2015 at 2:00 p.m., central time, at EXCO's corporate office located at 12377 Merit Drive, First Floor Conference Center, Dallas, Texas.

Upon receipt of shareholder approval to limit the benefits of EXCO's waiver of the corporate opportunities doctrine solely to Mr. Wilder, the remaining members of the Board will be obligated to present corporate opportunities to EXCO to the extent required by Texas law.

EXCO's Board recommends that shareholders vote "FOR" the proposals to be acted upon at the special meeting. Shareholders are encouraged to read the definitive proxy materials in their entirety as they provide a detailed discussion of the proposals.
