Partnership Objectives.

WCSB Oil & Gas Royalty Income 2009 Management Corp. (the "General Partner" of the Partnership) believes that the long term fundamental outlook for the energy sector is attractive. Although there will be volatility in energy prices over the short term, companies involved in the production of oil and natural gas will realize strong cash flow and profits attributable to attractive commodity prices driven primarily by robust global demand, limited excess production capacity and restricted supplies.

The General Partner intends to provide limited partners with: i) income; ii) capital appreciation and potential liquidity through the sale or roll-over of its assets (a "Liquidity Event"); and iii) a 100% tax deductible investment by participating in the development of, and, to a lesser extent, the exploration for oil and natural gas.

The General Partner is targeting a 16% annualized return on invested capital (net of projected tax savings) after fees and expenses.
