TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - March 01, 2016) -  NexC Partners Corp. (the "Company") (TSX: NXC) would like to announce that the annual redemption condition for the March 2016 annual redemption has been triggered as described in the Company's prospectus. Over the four month period ended February 28th, 2016, the Class A shares traded on the TSX at an average discount to net asset value ("NAV") of 5.21% on a volume weighted basis. 

Shareholders may tender their Class A, Class F or Class J shares for redemption and will receive a Redemption Price equal to NAV per Class A Shares, Class F Shares or Class J Shares, respectively, on the Annual Redemption Date, less any cost associated with the redemption. As described in the Prospectus, for the purposes of calculating the Net Asset Value per share for the annual redemption, the Company's investment in Purpose Investments Inc. (the "Manager"), will be valued at book value as shown on the Manager's most recent audited annual financial statements. The current book value of the Manager, as shown in its most recent audited annual financial statements is zero and therefore will result in a reduction to NAV per share in the determination of the Redemption Price of approximately $0.49 per share redeemed. Payment of redemption proceeds will be made on or about the 15th business day of the month following the Annual Redemption Date.
