Standard & Poor's Announces Changes in the S&P/TSX SmallCap Index

TORONTO, Nov. 2, 2011 /CNW/ - Standard & Poor's will make the following changes in the S&P/TSX Canadian Indices:

Shareholders of Open Range Energy Corp. (TSX:ONR) approved on November 1, 2011, the Plan of Arrangement whereby the company will spin out its modular fracturing fluid tank rental business to shareholders. For every share of Open Range held, shareholders will receive 0.8839 shares of a new company named Poseidon Concepts Corp. Poseidon Concepts will trade on TSX for the first time (the ex-date of the spin-off) on November 4, 2011, under the ticker symbol "PSN" and CUSIP number 73731R 10 3. The spun out shares of Poseidon Concepts will be added at zero price to the S&P/TSX SmallCap and Equity SmallCap Indices after the close of trading on Thursday, November 3, 2011. Effective after the close of Friday, November 4, 2011, the shares of Poseidon Concepts will be removed from the same two indices.

Company additions to and deletions from an S&P equity index do not in any way reflect an opinion on the investment merits of the company.
