TORONTO: Oil Sands Split Trust (the “Trust”) announces that a contingent reserve in the amount of $1,193,026 has been created as a result of an internal review of the amount paid to holders of the Trust’s Capital Units who participated in the Trust’s 2008 special annual retraction (the “Retracting Unitholders”). Sentry Select Capital Corp., as the administrator of the Trust (the “Administrator”), is proceeding with its internal review process in order to make a determination regarding the possible entitlement of Retracting Unitholders to receive an additional payment of approximately $15.08 per Capital Unit submitted for retraction. The Administrator will issue a further press release as soon as it completes its internal review process, which is expected to occur in January 2009.
