Increase in net assets attributable to holders of Class A units amounted to C$0.86 million or C$0.59 per Class A unit. Increase in net assets attributable to holders of Class U units amounted to C$0.09 million or C$1.16 per Class U unit.

The Fund's investment objectives are to provide unitholders with (i) stable quarterly cash distributions; and (ii) the opportunity for capital appreciation.

To achieve its investment objectives, the Fund invests in an actively managed portfolio consisting of equity securities of any issuer included in the NASDAQ-100 IndexSM (the "NASDAQ 100"). The NASDAQ 100 includes 100 of the largest U.S. domestic and international non-financial securities listed on the NASDAQ Stock Market based on market capitalization. The Fund may invest in the equity securities of any one issuer up to 10% of the net asset value.

The Fund employs a proprietary investment strategy, Strathbridge Selective Overwriting ("SSO"), to enhance the income generated by the portfolio and to reduce volatility. The Fund intends to strategically write covered call options from time to time, in respect of the securities held in its portfolio. In addition, the Fund may write cash covered put options in respect of securities in which it is permitted to invest.

The Fund's investment portfolio is managed by its investment manager, Strathbridge Asset Management Inc. The Class A units are listed on the TSX under the symbol NGI.UN and the Class U units do not trade on an exchange.
