FIRST QUARTER 2014 FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS

During the first quarter 2014, the Corporation completed strategic plans for each of its three operating platforms - self-storage facilities, private equity funds and natural gas assets and the focus is centered on building upon the foundation in and adding scale to each of the operating platforms. The Corporation achieved the following during the three months ended March 31, 2014:

--  Recorded an unrealized gain of $405,000 on investments of Network 2012
    Fund; 

--  Received a distribution of $75,000 from Real Storage Private Trust
    representing the Corporation's share of a 3% per annum distribution on
    invested capital which is paid quarterly; 

--  Generated an operating netback of $2.22 per mcf from the Shackleton
    Partnership 2011 LP; and  

--  Brought on stream Northpoint Resources Ltd.'s first horizontal well with
    production levels of approximately 2,300 mcf per day. 

As at March 31, 2014, Wilmington had assets under management in its operating platforms of approximately $148.0 million ($56.0 million representing Wilmington's share).

STRATEGIC PLAN

Wilmington continues to advance its principal objectives of making investments capable of generating appreciation in value as opposed to current income and to maximize shareholder returns by investing its own capital alongside partners and co-investors in hard assets and private equity funds. These assets are managed through the Corporation's operating platforms where Wilmington can add scale and improve valuations.

OPERATIONS REVIEW

Storage Facilities

Real Storage Private Trust ("Trust")

The Trust (42.13% owned) owns 20 self-storage facilities comprising 787,000 square feet of rentable area and one development property. The Trust recorded significant period over period improvements in 2014 as the facilities in Western Canada, which were for the most part in the initial lease up stage, achieved stabilized occupancy levels. During the first quarter of 2014, same store occupancy levels averaged 82%, compared to 78% in 2013; same store operating margins improved to 52% in the first quarter of 2014 from 51% in the comparable quarter of 2013.

During the third quarter 2013, the Trust commenced quarterly distributions to its unit holders equivalent to 3% per annum on invested capital. For the three months ended March 31, 2014, the Trust declared a distribution of $178,000 (Corporation's share - $75,000). During 2014, the Trust plans on increasing the net rentable area of its property portfolio to over 1.0 million square feet.

Private Equity

Network Capital Management Inc. ("NCI") and Network 2012 Fund

NCI (50% owned) has funds under management now totaling approximately $41.5 million and the majority of Network's available capital has been successfully deployed in a strong mix of junior oil and gas and service companies. The Corporation invested $8.0 million of capital in the Network 2012 Fund and has received cumulative distributions of $716,000 to date. Plans are in place for NCI to raise an additional fund in 2014, which would represent the 16th fund raised by NCI since inception.

Natural Gas Assets

Shackleton 2011 Limited Partnership (the "Shackleton Partnership" or the "Partnership")

The Shackleton Partnership (59% owned) owns a 100% interest in natural gas wells in Southwestern Saskatchewan. The Shackleton Partnership's natural gas production volumes amounted to 595 boe per day for the first quarter of 2014. The weighted average price realized during the first quarter of 2014 was $4.30 per mcf and operating netbacks averaged $2.22 per mcf (realized price of $3.18 per mcf and netbacks of $1.90 per mcf for the comparable period in 2013). Of its 2014 production, approximately 50% has been hedged under fixed price contracts with an average price of $3.61 per GJ.

Given the improved natural gas pricing environment, the Partnership is focused on production optimization through well workovers and introducing new technology.

Northpoint Resources Ltd. ("Northpoint")

On July 30, 2013, the Corporation added to its natural gas platform by investing in Northpoint, a privately held oil and gas producer with assets in the Altares region of Northeastern British Columbia. The Corporation acquired a 36.5% ownership interest in Northpoint for total cash consideration of $2.2 million. In addition and as part of an overall recapitalization plan, the Corporation acquired $798,000 of a 10%, $5.0 million debenture issue by Northpoint which matures on August 1, 2017. Northpoint's achieved oil and natural gas sales volumes of 1,283 boe per day for the first quarter of 2014 compared to 1,286 boe per day during Q1 2013. During December 2013, Northpoint drilled its first horizontal well which is producing approximately 2,300 mcf per day (383 boe per day). Although the production fell short of original expectations, no significant rates of decline in production are being experienced. Plans call for drilling a second well in Q3 or Q4 of 2014.

The weighted average price realized during the first quarter of 2014 was $4.65 per mcf and operating netbacks averaged $1.66 per mcf (realized price of $3.52 per mcf and netbacks of $1.59 per mcf for the comparable period in 2013).

Outlook

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 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.
