Mar 11, 2011, 02:54 ET from Tetragon Financial Group Limited

LONDON, March 11, 2011 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- TFG will provide to self-identified U.S. shareholders of TFG for the 2010 calendar year, on a confidential basis only, information necessary for such a shareholder to satisfy its U.S. federal income tax filing obligations, including such information necessary to make qualified electing fund (QEF) elections under the U.S. tax rules for Passive Foreign Investment Companies (PFICs).

Any such shareholders who wish to receive this confidential information should provide their contact details to TFG's Investor Relations department at the contact details below.

TFG will use reasonable efforts to provide information with respect to underlying portfolio companies that it has reasonably determined to be PFICs. Although estimates of such underlying PFIC information may be provided earlier, TFG may not be able to provide actual underlying PFIC information in advance of the April 15 tax return deadline applicable to most individual U.S. taxpayers, and so such shareholders may wish to request an extension of their tax filing deadline. In addition, TFG will not accept any liability for the accuracy or completeness of any such provided information.
