MONTREAL, Sept. 19 /CNW Telbec/ - As provided in the prospectus of Global
Diversified Investment Grade Income Trust (the "Trust") (TSX symbol: DG.UN), a
net asset value ("NAV") is published monthly for the units of the Trust. In
order to calculate the NAV of the Trust, the trustee, Global Digit Management
Inc. (the "Trustee") receives from Winchester Capital, a division of Deutsche
Bank A.G. (the "Bank") an indicative price on the value of the financial
contracts. The published NAV for the units of the Trust was $5.70 as of
August 31, 2008, factoring in the prior indicative price received.
Based on the latest indicative price received from the Bank, the
estimated NAV as at September 30, 2008 would be approximately $3.36
representing a reduction of about 41% from the NAV as at August 31, 2008, in
the absence of material variations in the value of the other components of the
NAV since August 31, 2008.
The Trustee understands that the decline in the quoted indicative price
is primarily attributable to recent volatility observed in the financial
markets, which in turn has triggered significant volatility in the pricing of
the financial contracts. It is not possible to predict when these market
factors will stabilize and it is reasonable to expect further volatility in
future months which would result in either higher or lower NAVs per unit.
