FOURTH QUARTER 2013 HIGHLIGHTS

During the fourth quarter, the Corporation took further steps to solidify and build upon the foundation of its three operating platforms - self storage facilities, private equity funds and natural gas assets. For the three months ended December 31, 2013, the Corporation:


--  Realized a distribution of $76,000 from Real Storage Private Trust
    representing the Corporation's share of a 3% per annum distribution on
    invested capital which is paid quarterly.
--  Realized a distribution of $716,000 from the Network 2012 Fund
    representing the Corporation's share of the distribution of proceeds on
    the sale of an oil and gas investment which $502,000 represents a return
    of capital.
--  Generated $1.0 million in revenue during the fourth quarter of 2013,
    compared to $1.2 million during the same period in 2012. This decrease
    was primarily due to decrease in natural gas production which was offset
    by higher natural gas prices.
--  Reported net income from continuing operations of $466,000 compared to a
    loss of $293,000 during the same period in 2012, of which $540,000
    related to an income tax recovery.

As at December 31, 2013, Wilmington had assets under management in its operating platforms of approximately $144 million ($56 million representing Wilmington's share).

The Corporation received total proceeds of USD $20.0 million comprised of cash proceeds of USD $983,000 and the transfer of the secured debt of USD $19.0 million to the purchaser. Cash proceeds from the sale were used to settle certain loans payable. The sale was part of the steps in rationalizing the Corporation's core business.

Outlook

2012 and 2013 have been formative years and the Corporation believes that the foundation for achieving future growth through its three operating platforms - self-storage, private equity and oil and natural gas - is now in place. In the years ahead, the Corporation expects to add scale to these operating platforms, improve valuations and earn attractive cash flow and total returns for shareholders.
