J. Colter Eadie, Chief Executive Officer of Transeastern commented, "During the third quarter we have consolidated our operational and management team as we have transitioned from the closing of the successful initial public offering in May 2014 to our roles as operators and managers. The team has worked hard to complete the necessary maintenance and start operating the projects. Most of the critical capital expenditures required to advance our portfolio to steady state production have been completed. Our focus will now shift to the application of best practice operational management to maximize the availability of the projects going forward."

Mr. Eadie concluded, "With Transeastern, we have taken the first steps in the development of a world class management platform that will continue to develop and operate renewable energy assets globally. We have been actively seeking acquisition opportunities for renewable projects throughout Europe in order to grow our business on an accretive basis while minimizing risk through diversification. Our goal is to become a vertically integrated energy player in Europe and beyond while creating long-term value for unitholders."

About Transeastern

The Trust, through its direct and indirect subsidiaries in Canada, the Netherlands and Romania, has been formed to acquire interests in renewable energy assets in Romania, other countries in Europe and abroad that can provide stable cash flow to the Trust and a suitable risk-adjusted return on investment. The Trust seeks to provide investors with long-term, stable distributions, while preserving the capital value of its investment portfolio through investment, principally in a range of operational assets, which generate electricity from renewable energy sources, with a particular focus on hydroelectric power.

The Trust intends to qualify as 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).
