TORONTO, May 9, 2013 /CNW/ - AlphaNorth Partners Fund Inc. (the
"Company") is pleased to announce a reorganization (the "Reorg") to
take place on a tax-deferred basis for the Company and its Shareholders
effective May 31, 2013.
Upon completion, the Reorg will separate the Company's interest in an
investment from the main portfolio, and transfer such interest to a
newly formed limited partnership, to be named AlphaNorth Partners Fund
LP (the "Partnership").
The Manager previously indicated that a Reorg would be considered if an
illiquid investment held the potential to substantially increase in
value, and a spin-out of such investment would be necessary for the
Company to maintain its status as a mutual fund corporation under the Income Tax Act (Canada).
Shareholders will continue to hold their current investment in Class A
Shares or Class D Shares as applicable in the Company, and will receive
a new investment in corresponding Class A or Class D Units in the
