TORONTO, CANADA--(Marketwired - April 5, 2013) -

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES.

Pinetree Capital Ltd. (TSX:PNP) announces that it has amended the terms of its normal course issuer bid (the "Bid") for the company's 8% convertible unsecured subordinated debentures due May 31, 2016 ("Debentures") (TSX: "PNP.DB"), to increase the amount of Debentures that it can purchase under the Bid from $3,750,000 principal amount to $7,440,000 principal amount. The increased amount represents 10% of the "public float" of the Debentures that were outstanding at the commencement of the Bid on May 18, 2012.

Purchases of Debentures can be made under the Bid through the facilities of the TSX and on other alternative Canadian trading systems, up to a maximum of $28,293 principal amount per day (subject to the company's ability to rely upon the "block purchase exception" under the TSX rules). All purchases will be made at market prices and otherwise in accordance with the rules of the TSX, and all Debentures purchased under the Bid will be cancelled. To date, Pinetree has purchased an aggregate of $2,948,000 principal amount of Debentures under the Bid at a volume weighted average price of $79.59 per $100 principal amount of Debentures. The Bid expires on May 17, 2013.
