CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - March 24, 2011) -

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

Canoe Financial LP (the "Manager" or "Canoe"), is pleased to announce that it has completed the first closing for the initial public offering of limited partnership units ("Units") of the EnerVest 2011 Flow-Through LP (the "Partnership"), in each of the provinces of Canada, except Quebec. The total number of limited partnership units issued was 280,670 at $25.00 per unit, resulting in gross proceeds raised for the Partnership of approximately $7.0 million. The Partnership expects that there will be a second closing for this Offering in mid-April. 

The Partnership's investment objective is to provide Limited Partners with exposure to quality, tax-advantaged energy investments within two separate portfolios, consisting primarily of (i) Canadian Exploration Expense ("CEE") Flow-Through Shares of Resource Companies (the "Class CEE Portfolio"); or (ii) Canadian Development Expense ("CDE") Flow-Through Shares of Resource Companies (the "Class CDE Portfolio", and together with the Class CEE Portfolio, the "Investment Portfolios"). The Partnership provides the choice of investing in either the Class CEE Portfolio or the Class CDE Portfolio or a combination of both, allowing investors to target their specific investment requirements. Approximately 56% of proceeds raised were allocated to the Class CDE Portfolio, the balance of the proceeds were allocated to the Class CEE Portfolio.

The Investment Portfolios will be managed by Canoe Financial LP, a Calgary-based investment management firm with approximately $1.8 billion in assets under management. Canoe's investment personnel have extensive experience investing in and operating oil and natural gas companies as well as financing and structuring energy-related transactions.
