TORONTO, April 15 /CNW/ - Jovian Capital Corporation ("Jovian") (TSX:
JOV) and its subsidiary AlphaPro Management Inc. ("AlphaPro") are pleased to
announce that the syndicate agents for the initial public offering of the
Horizons AlphaPro Gartman Fund (the "Fund"), led by CIBC World Markets Inc.
and BMO Capital Markets, have exercised the over-allotment option for an
additional 265,000 Class A units of the Fund. In total, the Fund has issued
approximately 5.8 million Class A and Class F units, for gross proceeds of
approximately $58 million. The Class A units are listed for trading on the
Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") under the symbol HAG.UN.
The Fund has been created to provide investors with the opportunity for
capital appreciation through exposure to the investment strategies of The
Gartman Letter, L.C. ("Gartman") founded by Dennis Gartman who is also author
and editor of the daily publication The Gartman Letter(TM).
The Fund is expected, subject to regulatory approval, to automatically

The Fund uses equity securities, futures contracts and ETFs to provide
the Fund with long and short exposure to multiple asset classes which may
include but are not limited to global equities, commodities, fixed income and
currencies. The net proceeds of the offering are invested in an actively
managed portfolio of investments that Gartman believes will provide the
greatest opportunity for consistent capital appreciation through all market
and business cycles.
