February 15, 2008
TORONTO, Ontario (February 15, 2008) – Pinetree Capital Ltd. (TSX: PNP), announces that on February 14, 2008, it acquired ownership of 1,500,000 common shares (“Common Shares”) of Gold Summit Corp. (“Gold Summit”) and 1,500,000 common share purchase warrants (the “Warrants”). Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to acquire one additional common share until February 14, 2010, at a price of $0.25. In the event that the Warrants are fully exercised, these holdings represent approximately 5.2% of the total issued and outstanding common shares of Gold Summit as of February 14, 2008, calculated on a partially diluted basis assuming the exercise of the Warrants only. As a result of this transaction, Pinetree and its joint actors held, as at February 14, 2008, an aggregate of 6,300,000 common shares of Gold Summit and convertible securities exercisable into 4,300,000 common shares of Gold Summit (the “Convertible Securities”), including the Warrants. Of these totals, Pinetree directly holds 5,500,000 common shares and rights to acquire 3,500,000 common shares of Gold Summit upon exercise of convertible securities (the “Pinetree Convertible Securities”), including the Warrants. If Pinetree and its joint actors were to exercise all of the Convertible Securities, their combined ownership would represent a total of 10,600,000 common shares of Gold Summit, or approximately 17.5% of such shares outstanding as of February 14, 2008, calculated on a partially diluted basis assuming the exercise of the Convertible Securities only. If Pinetree were to exercise all of the Pinetree Convertible Securities, its direct ownership would represent a total of 9,000,000 common shares of Gold Summit, or approximately 15.0% of such shares outstanding as of February 14, 2008, calculated on a partially diluted basis assuming the exercise of the Pinetree Convertible Securities only.
These transactions were made for investment purposes and Pinetree and each of its joint actors could increase or decrease their respective investments in Gold Summit depending on market conditions or any other relevant factor.
