2007-09-19

TORONTO: Sentry Select Capital Corp. (“Sentry Select” or “Manager”) is pleased to announce that Sentry Select Diversified Income Trust (the “Trust”) has filed, and received a receipt for, a preliminary short-form prospectus across Canada, qualifying units of the Trust (the “Trust Units”) to be issued in connection with its exchange offer (the “Exchange Offer”) for securities of issuers (the “Issuers”) listed below.

Deposit date and closing: Acceptances of the Exchange Offer must be deposited with Computershare Investor Services Inc. through CDS Clearing and Depository Services Inc. (“CDS”) until 4:00 pm (Toronto time) on October 15, 2007 (the “Deposit Date”). Subject to the satisfaction of the conditions of the Exchange Offer, the closing is expected to occur on or about October 26, 2007.

Exchange ratio: Trust Units may be purchased by the exchange of eligible securities of any Issuer named below. The number of Trust Units issuable for the securities of each Issuer (the “Exchange Ratio”) will be determined by dividing the volume weighted average trading price of such securities on the Toronto Stock Exchange (“TSX”) during the period of three consecutive trading days ending on the Deposit Date (the “Pricing Period”) by the volume weighted average trading price of the Trust Units on the TSX during the Pricing Period.

Acceptance: The Exchange Offer will remain open for acceptance until 4:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on October 15, 2007. The Exchange Offer may be accepted only by means of a book-entry deposit through CDS. Holders of securities of an Issuer who wish to accept the Exchange Offer must request their investment adviser, investment dealer, bank, trust company or other nominee to effect the transaction for them and should do so not later than October 12, 2007 to ensure that their securities are included in the deposit to be made through CDS on October 15, 2007. Some nominees may require an earlier deadline for receiving instructions concerning a deposit.

Reimbursement of expenses: The Manager has agreed to reimburse the Trust for the expenses of the Exchange Offer, including the solicitation and agency fees, incurred by the Trust in 28 equal quarterly instalments (due January 1, April 1, July 1 and October 1), together with interest, beginning on January 1, 2009. This obligation will be evidenced by a promissory note to be issued at the closing of the Exchange Offer, which will bear interest from the date of issue at the prime rate of interest posted from time to time by the Trust’s bank.
