MONTRÉAL, QUÉBEC--(Marketwired - Dec. 9, 2015) - Cogeco Cable Inc. ("Cogeco Cable" or "the Corporation") (TSX:CCA) has announced its intention to change its name to Cogeco Communications Inc. This new name better expresses the company's footprint, and clearly and strongly evokes its profile and unique areas of expertise to all its internal or external stakeholders.

In order to make a change to the public company's name, the Corporation must obtain the approval of its shareholders.

In addition, the Corporation is currently undertaking a review of the name of its subsidiary, Cogeco Cable Canada. This analysis is still in the development stages and more information will be shared should any further changes take place as a result of this exercise.

It is the 11th largest cable operator in North America, operating in Canada under the Cogeco Cable Canada name in Québec and Ontario, and in the United States under the Atlantic Broadband name in western Pennsylvania, south Florida, Maryland/Delaware, South Carolina and eastern Connecticut.
