Assiniboia Farmland Limited Partnership Announces Brokered Private Placement


REGINA, Nov. 22, 2011 /CNW/ - Assiniboia Farmland Limited Partnership (the "Partnership" or "Assiniboia Farmland") is pleased to announce it has engaged GMP Securities L.P., as lead agent along with Canaccord Genuity Corp., in connection with the offer and sale of up to $20,000,000 of partnership units ("Units") at the price of $41.00 per Unit, with a minimum subscription of $25,000. The Units will be offered as a private placement offering pursuant to the accredited investor and family, friends and business associates exemptions of National Instrument 45-106 - Prospectus and Registration Exemptions.

"In a time of unstable markets and global risk, Saskatchewan farmland offers a haven of safety and growth," said Doug Emsley, President of the Partnership's general partner. "According to Farm Credit Canada, Saskatchewan farmland values led the country in the first half of this year, and the published pricing NAV of Assiniboia Farmland Units rose by over 30%."

The proceeds of the offering will be used to continue to acquire farmland in Saskatchewan and grow the Partnership's portfolio in a manner consistent with its business plan. The offering is expected to close on or about December 16, 2011.

Assiniboia Farmland Limited Partnership is the largest farmland investment partnership in Canada, with approximately 110,000 acres of Saskatchewan farmland under management.  The Partnership is the only Saskatchewan farmland partnership headquartered in Saskatchewan.  Based in Regina, the Partnership provides investors with an opportunity to gain exposure to Saskatchewan farmland while providing stable semi-annual cash distributions to investors.
