Sprott Asset Management Expands its Leading Suite of Precious Metals Funds with Launch of Two Industry Firsts - Sprott Silver Equities Class and Sprott Silver Bullion Class

TORONTO, Feb. 9, 2012 /CNW/ - Sprott Asset Management LP ("Sprott") is pleased to announce the upcoming launch of three new precious metals-related funds on February 28, 2012. Sprott Silver Equities Class is the first fund of its kind in Canada, while Sprott Silver Bullion Class is the first silver bullion fund to be offered within a mutual fund corporation structure. Sprott Gold Bullion Class is also being launched to provide investors with greater investment choice within Sprott Corporate Class Inc. ("Corporate Class"), a mutual fund corporation designed to provide greater tax-efficiency for investors. With the addition of these three funds, Corporate Class now offers eleven different share classes for investors to switch between without triggering an immediate taxable event.

"We are pleased to build on our leadership position in the precious metals category", said James Fox, President of Sprott. "With the launch of these new funds, we continue to demonstrate our commitment to developing innovative new products to help our clients achieve their investment objectives."

Sprott's bullion funds are a convenient, liquid and cost-effective way to hold physical gold and silver, while the Sprott Silver Equities Class invests primarily in mining companies that are focused on silver exploration and production. "We strongly believe that investors should have an allocation to precious metals in their portfolios," said Eric Sprott, Chief Investment Officer of Sprott.
