Toronto, ON. (March 18, 2011) – GMP Capital Inc. (“GMP”) (TSX: GMP and GMP.PR.B) announced that
it has re-filed its audited financial statements and accompanying management’s discussion and analysis
for the year ended December 31, 2010 to correct a calculation error relating to earnings per common
share for 2009.
The correction relates to amounts recorded in connection with the redemption of GMP’s Series A
preferred shares in December 2009. The amounts were charged to retained earnings, as required, but
were not deducted in computing net income available to common shareholders. The earnings per
common share (“EPS”) for 2009 has accordingly been revised from $0.64 per basic EPS and $0.59 per
diluted EPS, as originally reported, to $0.52 per basic EPS and $0.48 per diluted EPS. The correction
and re-filing has no effect on EPS for 2010 and does not otherwise affect GMP’s financial statements for
the years ended 2010 and 2009.
