CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Apr 10, 2017) - Norrep Capital Management Ltd. (Norrep Capital), the promoter and manager of the Norrep Short Duration 2016 Flow-Through Limited Partnership (the Partnership) announces that the previously announced tax deferred transfer of the assets of the Partnership to Norrep Opportunities Corp. (Norrep Opportunities), an open end mutual fund corporation, in exchange for MF Series shares of Norrep Energy Class, a class of shares of Norrep Opportunities (MF Series Shares), has been completed effective April 10, 2017 (the Liquidity Transaction).
The net asset values were calculated as at the close of business on April 10, 2017. The Partnership closed at a final price of $7.72 per unit. The Partnership received an aggregate of 788,082 MF Series Shares with a net asset value of approximately $7,712,176. As a result of the transfer, each limited partner of the Partnership will receive, effective upon dissolution of the Partnership, approximately 0.7894 of a MF Series Share for each limited partnership unit based on a net asset value of $7.72 per unit. The estimated adjusted cost base for the Partnership is $2.4427 per unit, which translates to $3.0946 per share for the MF Series Shares distributed to limited partners. The MF Series Shares will be distributed to the limited partners within five business days following the date of dissolution of the Partnership.
The Partnership will be dissolved in accordance with the Partnership Act (Alberta) on April 11, 2017.

There are no fees for investors related to the Liquidity Transaction and no costs associated with the Liquidity Transaction will be charged to Norrep Opportunities. The Liquidity Transaction does not represent a taxable event. Investors may defer the capital gains tax liability that would otherwise occur upon the disposition of the investment by continuing to hold the MF Series Shares of Norrep Energy Class.
