Blue Ribbon Appointed as Administrator of Two Citadel Funds

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 23, 2009) - Blue Ribbon Fund Management Ltd. ("Blue Ribbon") is pleased to announce that it has been appointed as Administrator of Citadel Diversified Investment Trust ("CTD")(TSX:CTD.UN)and Series S-1 Income Fund ("SRC")(TSX:SRC.UN) effective November 20, 2009. All of the features of the Blue Ribbon reorganization proposal as approved at the Special Meeting of Unitholders held on November 17, 2009, were enacted, including new investment strategies and investment restrictions for both funds and retaining Bloom Investment Counsel, Inc. as investment manager of the Funds.

In conjunction with the reorganization, Citadel Diversified Investment Trust was renamed Blue Ribbon Income Fund and its ticker symbol will become RBN.UN effective November 24, 2009.

The merger of SRC into the Blue Ribbon Income Fund is expected to occur on or about December 31, 2009, which should provide unitholders of both funds with greater trading liquidity and lower operating costs per unit.
