Sentry Select Capital Corp. Reconciles NAV Error in Sentry Select Blue-Chip Income Trust (TSX: SIT.UN)

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - March 26, 2007) - Sentry Select Capital Corp. ("Sentry Select" or the "Manager"), the manager of Sentry Select Blue-Chip Income Trust (the "Trust") (TSX:SIT.UN), announces that it has completed its review of the reconciliation process of the Trust's net asset value per unit ("NAVPU") discrepancy announced on January 25, 2007.

An administrative error in processing the July 2002 monthly redemption resulted in an understatement in the NAVPU of the Trust over the period from July 31, 2002 to January 18, 2007, inclusive (the "Period"). As a result, unitholders who redeemed units of the Trust during the Period ("Entitled Unitholders") are entitled to additional redemption proceeds from the Trust, including interest.

The Manager forwarded the additional redemption proceeds to be paid to Entitled Unitholders, together with payment allocation details, to the Canadian Depository for Securities Limited, who will direct the funds to the respective brokerage firms. Based on their records, the brokerage firms have the responsibility to determine the payments to their Entitled Unitholders.

Entitled Unitholders who changed brokerage firms since the time they redeemed units of the Trust are advised to contact their financial advisor regarding payment details.

The Manager has been advised by its legal counsel that the payments should be treated by the unitholders as additional proceeds on disposition. Unitholders should consult their tax advisors regarding the income tax consequences of these payments.
