S SPLIT CORP. ISSUES WARRANTS

/NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES/

TORONTO, Aug. 24 /CNW/ - (TSX: SBN; SBN.PR.A) - S Split Corp. (the "Fund") is pleased to announce that it has issued to holders of its Class A Shares, Warrants to subscribe for Class A Shares and Preferred Shares of the Fund together in units ("Units").

Under the warrant offering, the Fund issued one Warrant for each Class A Share of the Fund held by holders of record on August 23, 2010. Each Warrant entitles its holder to acquire one Unit at a subscription price of $19.13 commencing on August 24, 2010 and ending on the expiry date of January 17, 2011. The Warrants trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol SBN.WT.A and will continue trading until noon (Toronto time) on the expiry date.

The exercise of Warrants by holders will provide the Fund with additional capital that can be used to take advantage of attractive investment opportunities and is also expected to increase the trading liquidity of the Class A Shares and the Preferred Shares and to reduce the management expense ratio of the Fund.

The Fund invests in a portfolio of common shares of The Bank of Nova Scotia. To generate additional returns above the distributions earned on its securities, the Fund may, from time to time, write covered call options in respect of some or all of the securities in its portfolio. The Fund may also, from time to time, write cash-covered put options in respect of securities in which the Fund is permitted to invest. The Fund's investment portfolio is managed by its investment manager, Mulvihill Capital Management Inc.
