million for Mavrix Mutual Funds for the month ended January 31, 2009.

markets helped our total AUM remain virtually unchanged for the month," said
David Balsdon, CCO and Secretary-Treasurer. "Gross redemptions for Mavrix in
January have been the lowest reported in over five years and we continue to
see sales strength in our conservative income-oriented mutual funds, such as
the Mavrix Balanced Monthly Pay Fund and the Mavrix Strategic Bond Fund."
