Criterion Press Release: Criterion U.S. Buyback Fund Announces Redemption Resumption

TORONTO, November 6, 2009 – Criterion Investments Inc., the manager and trustee of Criterion U.S. Buyback Fund (the “Trust”) announces that the process for winding up the Trust has been changed. Unitholders are permitted to redeem their units anytime between now and the termination date which is expected to be December 29, 2009. Any redemption requests during that time may be subject to a redemption charge or fee if initially purchased on a deferred sales charge or low load basis. However, unitholders of record as of the date of termination of the Trust will receive their proportionate share of all property and assets of the Trust and any redemption fee or charge that would normally be associated with a redemption will be waived and absorbed by Criterion.
