Hesperian Capital Management Ltd. Announces April 13, 2012 Rollover for Norrep Performance 2011 Flow-Through Limited Partnership

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Feb. 28, 2012) - Hesperian Capital Management Ltd. ("Hesperian"), the Manager of a strategically focused group of public mutual funds and limited partnerships (the "Norrep Group of Funds"), announced today that it intends to carry out the tax-deferred rollover of the Norrep Performance 2011 Flow-Through Limited Partnership into the Norrep Resource Class mutual fund on April 13, 2012. The Partnership 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 Canadian small and mid cap equity
  • Norrep All Cap Quant Class for Canadian all cap equity using a quantitative methodology
  • Norrep Income Growth Class for Canadian equity balanced
  • Norrep US Class for U.S.micro and small cap equity

  • Norrep Entrepreneurs Class for Canadian focused micro cap equity
  • Norrep High Yield Class for high yield fixed income
  • Norrep Global Income Growth Class for global equity balanced
