/NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR
DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES./
TORONTO, May 28 /CNW/ - Creststreet 2007 General Partner Limited is
pleased to announce that, pursuant to approval by the unitholders of the
Creststreet 2007 Limited Partnership (the "Partnership") at a special meeting
held on May 14, 2009, it has completed the transfer of substantially all of
the public securities component of the Partnership's portfolio, along with
cash and certain private securities, to Creststreet Energy Opportunities Fund
(the "Fund"), in exchange for series 2009 shares of the Fund, FundSERV Code
CAM903, ("Series 2009 shares") of equal value. The Partnership then
distributed the Series 2009 shares to unitholders of the Partnership as a
return of capital distribution.
Unitholders of the Partnership received 0.20786714666 Series 2009 shares
for each Partnership unit held, which represents 70% of the value of a
unitholder's units of the Partnership on May 27, 2009. At the time of the
transfer the Net Asset Value of the Partnership was $2.8588 and the Net Asset
Value of the Series 2009 shares was $9.5883. Unitholders will continue to hold
the same number of Partnership units, the value of which is reduced by the
value of the distribution paid. Tax reporting for this distribution will be
included on the 2009 T5013A tax reporting issued by the Partnership to all
unitholders in March 2010.
The Partnership will continue to hold the remaining 30% of its portfolio
which is comprised principally of private securities. The Partnership will
endeavor to sell such private securities and will reinvest the net proceeds
therefrom on a basis substantially similar to Fund's investment objectives,
except that no additional private securities will be purchased. The
Partnership will then complete a second transfer of all of its assets to Fund
on a tax-deferred basis as soon as it has achieved sufficient liquidity on its
private investments to allow the transfer to proceed and, in any event, no
later than May 29, 2011. Upon completion of the second transfer, the
Partnership will be dissolved and the Fund shares received will be distributed
to unitholders of the Partnership on a tax-deferred basis.
