Pinetree Capital Announces Renewal of Normal Course Issuer Bid

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 19, 2011) - Pinetree Capital Ltd. (TSX:PNP), a Canadian investment company, announces its intention to renew its normal course issuer bid (the "Bid") to purchase up to 5,000,000 of its common shares (representing approximately 3.7% of the 136,547,273 common shares outstanding as at August 15, 2011), through the facilities of the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "TSX") and on other published markets. The Bid is subject to acceptance by the TSX.

The Bid will commence on September 1, 2011 and end on August 31, 2012. Purchases of common shares under the Bid will be made at market prices and otherwise in accordance with the rules of the TSX. All common shares purchased under the Bid will be cancelled.

Pinetree believes that recent trading prices of its shares are not, and prices from time to time throughout the duration of the Bid may not be, fully reflective of the company's underlying value. Depending upon future price movements and other factors, the purchase of its shares under the Bid may represent an attractive investment for the company and a desirable use of funds to contribute to enhancing shareholder value.

Pinetree has not purchased any of its common shares during the previous twelve months.
