  1. Working Capital is calculated as cash, adjusted for management's estimate for known liabilities and is subject to change with future estimates or financial reports.
  2. Olive defines Liquid Investments as investments whose position can be liquidated in less than one day's average trading volume for that security.

Samuel Pelaez, the Company's President, CEO, CIO, and Director stated: "Gold and copper prices hit all-time highs during the month of May, with corresponding moves in large cap producers. Oil prices declined sharply in a politically charged environment. The junior resource complex, which had trailed its larger counterparts, finally outperformed this large cap complex as we had expected. Olive continued to deploy capital into the junior resource space expecting the sector to continue to catch up to its larger peers."

Derek Macpherson, Executive Chairman stated: "Olive had several investments outperform in May, increasing NAV per share by about 5% in the month. While Olive's investments in copper, gold and silver companies drove this strong performance, the Company also saw outperformance in select platinum group metals (PGM) and nickel investments, despite those commodities being out of favour."

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

This press release contains references to NAV or "net asset value per share" which is a non-GAAP financial measure. NAV is calculated as the value of total assets less the value of total liabilities divided by the total number of common shares outstanding as at a specific date. The term NAV does not have any standardized meaning according to GAAP and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. There is no comparable GAAP financial measure presented in the Company's consolidated financial statements and thus no applicable quantitative reconciliation for such non-GAAP financial measure. The Company believes that the measure provides information useful to its shareholders in understanding the Company's performance, and may assist in the evaluation of the Company's business relative to that of its peers. This data is furnished to provide additional information and does not have any standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP. Accordingly, it should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with GAAP, and is not necessarily indicative of other metrics presented in accordance with GAAP. Existing NAV of the Company is not necessarily predictive of the Company's future performance or the NAV of the Company as at any future date.
