FMF Capital Group Ltd. Defers Interest Payments for February



    TORONTO, March 14 /CNW/ - FMF Capital Group Ltd., (TSX:FMF.UN), today
announced that it is deferring interest payments on its subordinated notes for
the month of February.
    Based on financial results for the month of February, the Board of
Directors of the Company has determined that the Company's interest coverage
ratio remains below the applicable threshold and therefore, has decided to
exercise the Company's contractual right to defer the payment of interest on
its subordinated notes, including the subordinated note component of its
income participating securities (IPSs), for the month of February, which would
otherwise be payable on March 15, 2007. The Board of Directors expects to
defer interest for the month of March and will make this determination in
April 2007 after reviewing the Company's financial results including March. In
addition, no dividends will be paid on the common shares for the month
February.
