Hesperian Capital Management Ltd. Announces June 11 Rollover for Norrep Performance 2007 Flow-Through Limited Partnership and Norrep Performance 2008 Flow-Through Limited Partnership

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - April 19, 2010) - Hesperian Capital Management Ltd. ("Hesperian"), the Manager of a strategically focused group of public mutual funds and limited partnerships ("Norrep Group of Funds"), announced today that it intends to carry out the tax-deferred rollover of Norrep Performance 2007 Flow-Through Limited Partnership and Norrep Performance 2008 Flow-Through Limited Partnership into the Norrep Resource Class mutual fund on June 11, 2010. The partnerships will then be dissolved.

The rollover will be a tax-deferred exchange of flow-through limited partnership units for public mutual fund shares. The rollover will not involve fees or charges and it will not represent a disposition that triggers tax to be paid. Investors may indefinitely defer the eventual capital gains tax liability that occurs at disposition of the investment by holding the Norrep Resource Class mutual fund shares obtained in the rollover or by initiating a tax-deferred switch to another mutual fund class within the multi-class structure of Norrep Opportunities Corp.:

  • Norrep II Class for small and mid cap equity
  • Norrep Q Class for all cap equity using a quantitative methodology
  • Norrep Income Growth Class for small cap high yield equity
  • Norrep US Class for US small cap equity
  • Norrep Global Class for global small cap equity

The Norrep Funds website (www.norrep.com) will provide information as it becomes available on the rollover net asset value, exchange ratio, adjusted cost base (ACB), and the Norrep Resource Class.
