GrowthWorks Canadian Fund Granted Extension under Creditor Protection and Order to Initiate Claims Process

TORONTO, Jan. 9, 2014 /CNW/ - GrowthWorks Canadian Fund Ltd. (the "Fund"), which previously announced that it obtained orders of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice (the "Court") granting it creditor protection pursuant to the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act (Canada) ("CCAA") until and including January 15, 2014, today announced that it has obtained a further extension of the "Stay Period" until and including March 7, 2014, pursuant to an order of the Court issued on January 9, 2014 (the "Stay Extension Order").  The Stay Extension Order continues and extends the stay of proceedings, which has stayed certain creditor claims and the exercise of contractual rights against the Fund.

The Stay Extension Order provides the Fund with the necessary protection to continue to pursue the divestment of its investment portfolio and other strategic options, with a view to maximizing the return on its assets under the oversight of the Board of Directors of the Fund and FTI Consulting Canada Inc., in its capacity as Court-appointed monitor in the CCAA proceedings (the "Monitor"), and with the advice of its advisors.

The Fund also announced that it today obtained an order setting out a process for creditors of the Fund to prove any creditor claims that they may have against the Fund or against officers and/or directors of the Fund (the "Claims Procedure Order"). The Fund believes that the Claims Procedure Order will facilitate negotiation with bidders participating in the Fund's previously announced Sale and Investor Solicitation Process ("SISP"). Pursuant to the Claims Procedure Order, creditors of the Fund are entitled to file claims against the Fund and/or its directors and officers until 5:00 pm Toronto time on March 6, 2014.

A copy of the Stay Extension Order, the Claims Procedure Order and the
Fifth Report of the Monitor are available, and details relating to this case may be accessed, on the Monitor's website at http://cfcanada.fticonsulting.com/GCFL/
