("Homburg Invest" or the "Company") said today that, following a hearing held August 11, 2011 before the Nova Scotia Securities Commission, that it acknowledges that it violated Section 18 of the Nova Scotia Securities Act when the Company failed to file a News Release and a Material Change Report in a timely manner with respect to an Instruction received from the Netherlands Authority for Financial Markets on April 22, 2011.  The Company filed such News Release and Material Change Report on May 30, 2011 following the dismissal of Homburg Invest's objection to the Instruction by the District Court of Rotterdam in the Netherlands.  The Company has agreed to pay a $75,000 fine plus costs to settle the matter with the Nova Scotia Securities Commission.
