Correction from Source -- Gluskin Sheff + Associates Inc.
Company Release - 02/10/2011 16:05

In c9746 transmitted at 16:05e today, an error occurred in the second paragraph following the table. In the last sentence of that paragraph, the two figures should have read "$177 million" and "$482 million" and not "$177 billion" and "$482 billion". Corrected copy follows:


TORONTO, Feb. 10 /CNW/ - Gluskin Sheff + Associates Inc. (the "Company") announced today its results for the three months ended December 31, 2010.

Financial Highlights:

(unaudited, $ '000s) 3 Months 3 Months
Ended Ended
Dec. 31, 2010 Dec. 31, 2009
Assets Under Management ($ in millions) $ 6,009 $ 5,350
Base Management Fees $ 21,024 $ 18,777
Performance Fees 15,819 44,234
Investment and Other Income (Loss) 767 268
Total Revenue $ 37,610 $ 63,279
Base EBITDA $ 10,453 $ 9,671
Net Income $ 14,107 $ 21,580
Basic Earnings per Share $ 0.48 $ 0.74
Diluted Earnings per Share $ 0.48 $ 0.73

The Company's revenues are derived from Base Management Fees, calculated as a percentage of Assets Under Management ("AUM"), Performance Fees, which are earned when the Company exceeds prespecified rates of return, and Investment and Other Income.

During the quarter, AUM increased by approximately $160 million from $5.8 billion as at September 30, 2010 to $6.0 billion as at December 31, 2010. This increase is attributable to positive investment performance of approximately $258 million and net withdrawals of approximately $98 million. AUM increased by approximately $0.7 billion from December 31, 2009 ($5.3 billion) to December 31, 2010 ($6.0 billion). This increase in AUM is attributable to net additions of approximately $177 million and approximately $482 million in positive investment performance.

For the three months ended December 31, 2010, Base Management Fees increased to approximately $21.0 million from $18.8 million for the three months ended December 31, 2009, an increase of approximately 12%. This increase was due primarily to the increase in average AUM over the period.

Net Income was $14.1 million or $0.48 per common share for the three months ended December 31, 2010 down from $21.6 million or $0.74 per common share for the three months ended December 31, 2009.

"We are mindful of risk to capital in this volatile environment," said Jeremy Freedman, President and Chief Executive Officer. "This economic story has not yet been fully written, and we continue to focus on the pursuit of strong risk-adjusted returns over investment cycles. Doing so will serve both our clients and our shareholders well."
