Further to Pinetree's press release of January 26, 2011, this announcement expands on Pinetree's established practice of releasing NAV on a quarterly basis, and reflects our response to shareholder interest in receiving NAV information more frequently."I am pleased to report our NAV for January 31, 2011.

This is the start of providing monthly updates which we believe will be beneficial to investors and analysts and will provide a benchmark to evaluate our progress", states Sheldon Inwentash, Chairman and CEO.Use of Non-GAAP Financial MeasuresNAV is a non-GAAP financial measure calculated as the value of total assets less the value of total liabilities divided by the total number of common shares outstanding as at a specific date. The term NAV does not have any standardized meaning according to GAAP and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. There is no comparable measure presented in Pinetree's financial statements and thus no applicable quantitative reconciliation for such non-GAAP financial measure.About PinetreePinetree Capital Ltd.
