Partners Value Fund Announces Renewal of Normal Course Issuer Bid

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Dec. 11, 2014) - Partners Value Fund Inc. ("Partners Value Fund" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:PVF) announced today that it received approval from the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") for its proposed normal course issuer bid (the "Bid") to purchase up to 3,241,528 of its common shares, representing approximately 10% of the public float of its currently outstanding common shares. The period of the Bid will remain effective from December 17, 2014 to December 16, 2015, or such earlier date that the Company completes its purchases.

Purchases by Partners Value Fund pursuant to the Bid will be made by its broker, RBC Capital Markets, through the facilities of the Exchange and all applicable exchanges in Canada. The price which the Company will pay for any common shares purchased will be the market price of the common shares at the time of acquisition. Any common shares acquired through the Bid will be cancelled. Under its former normal course issuer bid that commenced on August 30, 2013 and expired on August 29, 2014, the Company acquired none of its common shares. As of December 10, 2014, there were 73,044,026 common shares outstanding.

From time to time, when Partners Value Fund does not possess material non-public information about itself or its securities, it may enter into a pre-defined plan with its broker to allow for the repurchase of shares at times when it ordinarily would not be active in the market due to its own internal trading blackout periods, insider trading rules or otherwise. Any such plans entered into with the Company's broker will be adopted in accordance with applicable Canadian securities laws.
