Norrep Capital Management Ltd. Announces Closing of Centurion Short Duration 2014 Flow-Through Limited Partnership Rollover Transaction
September 29, 2015
Calgary, Alberta, September 25, 2015. Norrep Capital Management Ltd. (Norrep Capital), the manager of the Centurion Short Duration 2014 Flow-Through Limited Partnership (the Partnership), announces that it has closed a transaction (the Liquidity Transaction) pursuant to which the assets of the Partnership were transferred on a tax-deferred basis to Norrep Opportunities Corp. (Norrep Opportunities), an open end mutual fund corporation, in exchange for I Series shares of Norrep Energy Class.
Norrep Energy Class is a publicly offered mutual fund, as are the other classes of Norrep Opportunities. Norrep Opportunities is managed by Norrep Capital, which is also the portfolio adviser to the Partnership. Information about Norrep Energy Class and Norrep Opportunities is available at the Norrep Investments website (www.norrep.com) and also at www.sedar.com.
The effective date of the Liquidity Transaction (the Effective Date) is September 25, 2015. As soon as reasonably possible, the I Series shares of Norrep Energy Class that the Partnership has received as consideration for the transfer of its assets will be distributed to the Limited Partners of the Partnership on a pro rata basis and thereafter the Partnership will be dissolved. There will be no fees or costs charged to Limited Partners as a result of the Liquidity Transaction. No costs associated with the Liquidity Transaction will be charged to Norrep Opportunities.
Following the Liquidity Transaction, Limited Partners will become shareholders in Norrep Energy Class and the Partnership will be dissolved.
How the Rollover Will Work
Limited Partners will receive, on a pro rata basis, I Series shares of Norrep Energy Class with a value equal to the value of the Limited Partnership Units of the Partnership (the Units) held at the Effective Date. The number of I Series shares of Norrep Energy Class that Limited Partners will receive will be equal to the number of Units they hold multiplied by the conversion ratio. The conversion ratio will be equivalent to the Net Asset Value of Units of the Partnership (less any performance bonus paid or payable to Norrep) divided by the Net Asset Value of the I Series shares of Norrep Energy Class determined at the close of business on the day prior to the Effective Date. The ACB (adjusted cost base) for each Unit of the Partnership and each I Series share of Norrep Energy Class will be determined upon the wind-up of the Partnership.
Limited Partners may indefinitely defer the capital gains tax liability that occurs at disposition of the investment by continuing to hold the I Series shares of Norrep Energy Class or by initiating a tax-deferred switch to another mutual fund class within the multi-class structure of Norrep Opportunities.

|Norrep II Class||Canadian small/mid cap equity|
