About Crius Energy

Crius Energy has been established to provide investors with a stable and consistent distribution-producing investment through the acquisition of an ownership interest in the Company by an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Crius Energy. The Company is one of the largest independent energy retailers operating in the United States, with more than 500,000 residential customer equivalents. The Company serves residential and small to medium-size commercial customers in the United States and markets its products through a variety of sales channels and brand names. The Company currently sells electricity in 11 states and the District of Columbia and natural gas in five states.

Crius Energy is a "mutual fund trust" under the Income Tax Act (Canada) (the "Tax Act"). The Trust will not be a "SIFT trust" (as defined in the Tax Act), provided that the Trust complies at all times with its investment restriction which precludes the Trust from holding any "non-portfolio property" (as defined in the Tax Act). Material information pertaining to Crius Energy may be found on www.sedar.com or www.criusenergytrust.ca.

Non-IFRS Financial Measures

Statements throughout this news release make reference to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA which are non-International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") financial measures commonly used by financial analysts in evaluating financial performance of companies, including companies in the energy retailing industry. Accordingly, management believes EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA may be useful metrics for evaluating the Trust's financial performance as they are measures that management uses internally to assess performance, in addition to IFRS measures. As there is no generally accepted method of calculating EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, these terms as used herein are not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. The items excluded from EBITDA are significant in assessing the Trust's operating results and liquidity. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation from, or as an alternative to, net income or other data prepared in accordance with IFRS. EBITDA is calculated as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as EBITDA adjusted to exclude any change in the fair value of derivative instruments. Below is a reconciliation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to net income as calculated under IFRS for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 (for a reconciliation for the six months ended June 30, 2012, please refer to the prospectus filed by Crius Energy on November 2, 2012).

1  As part of the business integration of Public Power and Regional Energy Holdings, the Company adopted a uniform method for the calculation of residential customer equivalents.  This resulted in a decrease in second quarter residential customer equivalent count of approximately 11,000 (or 2.2%) residential customer equivalents from previous disclosures.  The new method will be adopted consistently in the future.
