On February 3, 2005, the MFDA issued Bulletin #0124 – C providing notice to Members of the
Temporary Order of the Ontario Securities Commission which prohibits Portus Alternative Asset
Management Inc. (“Portus”) from opening any new client accounts, or accepting any new funds
or assets for investment in respect of any existing client accounts.
The Bulletin also noted that a number of other Securities Commissions have issued similar
orders or have raised similar concerns. Members may obtain further information regarding the
specific orders and the terms and conditions imposed on Portus’ registration in different
