Stone Investment Group Announces Amendments to Trust Indenture

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 29, 2009) - Stone Investment Group Limited (the "Company") announced today that the holders of the Company's 9.0% senior secured debentures due December 28, 2011 (the "Debentures") have approved the waiver of interest coverage ratio defaults under the Trust Indenture governing the Debentures. The holders also approved amendments to the Trust Indenture to adjust the basis of calculation of the interest coverage ratio to avoid continuing defaults. The defaults stem from the current global economic crisis and the consequent drop in markets and assets levels. The Trust Indenture is unamended in all other respects and the Company continues to make all interest payments when due.

The waivers and amendments were approved at an extraordinary meeting of the holders of Debentures held today in Toronto.
