Tuckamore Provides Update on Possible Indemnity Claim by Brompton Corp.

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - March 10, 2015) - Tuckamore Capital Management Inc. (TSX:TX)(TSX:TX.DB.B) ("Tuckamore" or the "Company") has been advised by Brompton Corp. ("Brompton") that Brompton has received notices of reassessment (the "Reassessments") from the Canada Revenue Agency (the "CRA") in which the CRA has denied the deduction to Brompton of certain non-capital losses and other tax attributes in computing Brompton's income for the 2010 to 2014 taxation years.

Tuckamore previously announced, in September 2014, that it had been notified by Brompton that in the event that Brompton is subject to taxes assessed by CRA or incurs losses or costs associated with the CRA's review, it will be seeking indemnification for approximately 40% of these taxes, losses or costs pursuant to agreements entered into by Tuckamore Holdings LP.

Tuckamore Holdings LP, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tuckamore, previously held approximately 40% of the outstanding shares of Brompton. Tuckamore Holdings LP sold its interest in Brompton in September 2011.

Brompton has recently announced that, based on the Reassessments, the total additional liability for tax, interest and penalties for the 2010 to 2014 taxation years is approximately $11.8 million, exclusive of legal costs and other costs. Brompton also notes in its announcement that it remains of the view that its tax filing position is appropriate and does not believe any additional assessment of income tax by CRA is warranted, that it intends to vigorously defend its position, and that legal proceedings through the relevant courts could take considerable time to resolve.

Tuckamore continues to monitor the situation involving Brompton, including its alternatives in respect of any potential claim for indemnification. The Company intends to follow and participate in the conduct of any negotiations, objections, appeals or other tax-related proceedings relating to the periods during which it was, indirectly, a shareholder of Brompton and to exercise all rights and remedies that it may have in respect of any claims brought by Brompton against Tuckamore Holdings LP for indemnification.
