Rollover of MRF 2012 Resource Limited Partnership

CALGARY, March 31, 2014 /CNW/ - Middlefield Mutual Funds Limited (the "Mutual Fund") is pleased to announce that it will complete a rollover of MRF 2012 Resource Limited Partnership (the "Partnership") into the Groppe Tactical Energy Class (MID 125). The Partnership will be dissolved and terminated on April 15, 2014.  There will be no fees charged on the rollover into the Mutual Fund, nor on redemptions of Mutual Fund shares.

The objective of Groppe Tactical Energy Class (MID 125) is to maximize long-term return by investing in equity and fixed income securities of issuers that operate in or have exposure to the oil and gas industry. As at February 28, 2014, Groppe Tactical Energy Class (MID 125) generated annualized total returns for the year-to-date, one, and three year periods of 11.6%, 36.4%, and 4.6%, respectively as well as an annualized total return of 11.9% since inception in July 2009. In addition, Groppe Tactical Energy is currently 5-Star rated by Globefund and received the 2012 Lipper Fund Award for the #1 Natural Resource Equity Fund Over 1-Year.

The transfer to the Mutual Fund will be a tax-free exchange, which means that no disposition will occur and therefore no capital gains tax will be payable as a result of the rollover. Investors can continue to defer the capital gains tax liability that arises upon disposition of their investment by retaining the shares of the Mutual Fund, which currently offers nine asset classes which investors can switch into tax-free. These asset classes provide significant flexibility to suit numerous investment objectives including income, growth and safety of capital. In addition to Groppe Tactical Energy, the other classes currently offered are Income Plus, ActiveIndex REIT, Precious Metals, Canadian High Yield, Canadian Dividend Growth, Global Agriculture, Uranium Focused Metals and Short-Term Income.

In addition, Middlefield Group is pleased to announce that it has filed a final prospectus relating to the initial public offering of MRF 2014 Resource Limited Partnership units. The offering is being made in each of the provinces and territories of Canada and is expected to have a final closing on or about April 29, 2014.
