Sentry Select Capital Corp. Announces Mutual Fund Terminations

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 18, 2008) - The Board of Directors of Sentry Select Capital Corp. ("Sentry Select"), as trustee of the Sentry Select Group of Funds (the "Trustee"), has determined that it is in the best interests of unitholders to terminate Sentry Select Global Value Fund and Sentry Select Global Small Cap Fund (the "Global Funds"). In compliance with securities legislation, the Trustee is hereby providing unitholders with 60 days prior written notice of the termination of the Global Funds. We anticipate the termination will occur on or about February 18, 2009.

The Trustee believes that it is in the best interest of the unitholders to terminate the Global Funds at this time, as the small asset size of the Global Funds has made it difficult for them to fulfill their respective mandates. Furthermore, the Trustee believes that, given the current economic environment, it is unlikely that the Global Funds will have the ability to attract significant new assets in the reasonably foreseeable future.

As a result of the imminent termination of the Global Funds, they are no longer accepting new purchases of their units. Sentry Select will continue to facilitate redemptions, transfers and switches prior to the terminations. Following the terminations, the outstanding liabilities of the Global Funds will be discharged and the remaining net assets will thereafter be distributed to the unitholders of the respective Global Funds. All expenses associated with the termination of the Global Funds will be borne by the Trustee.
