TORONTO, CANADA--(Marketwired - Jan. 14, 2015) - Pinetree Capital Ltd. (TSX:PNP)(TSX:PNP.DB) announces that it is temporarily suspending the company's practice of publicly disclosing its unaudited net asset value per share ("NAV") as at the end of each month, commencing with the December 2014 calculation, pending completion of the company's audited financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2014. Pinetree will resume disclosing its monthly unaudited NAV once the financial statements are finalized. The statements must be publicly filed by March 31, 2015.
NAV is calculated as at a particular date and is, by its nature, historical, and may not be reflective of Pinetree's future performance.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
NAV is a non-GAAP (general accepted accounting principles) 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 GAAP measure presented in Pinetree's consolidated financial statements and thus no applicable quantitative reconciliation for such non-GAAP financial measure. The Company has calculated NAV consistently for many years and believes that NAV can provide information useful to its shareholders in understanding its performance, and may assist in the evaluation of its business relative to that of its peers.
