Man Investments Canada Corp. (“Man Canada”) is pleased to announce that the Man GLG Emerging Markets Income Fund (the “Fund”) has completed its initial public offering of 10,049,921 Class A Units and 1,950,079 Class F Units, for aggregate proceeds of $120,000,000. The Class A Units commence trading Friday, November 18, 2011 on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) under ticker name EMY.UN. The Class F Units will not be listed on any stock exchange.

The Fund’s investment objectives are: i) to provide holders of Units (the “Unitholders”) with monthly
tax-advantaged distributions; and ii) to preserve capital while providing the opportunity for longterm
capital appreciation for Unitholders. The Fund will not have a fixed distribution amount, but
the distributions are initially targeted to be 6% per annum on the subscription price of $10.00 per
Unit ($0.05 per Unit per month or $0.60 per Unit per annum). The Fund has been created to
provide exposure to an actively managed, liquid and diversified portfolio of securities across
various asset classes primarily within global emerging markets such as Latin America, Central and
Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia (the “Portfolio”). The Portfolio will be managed by
GLG Partners LP. In managing the Portfolio, GLG Partners LP will pursue its strategy through both
active trading and investment principally in interest rate securities and instruments, sovereign and
corporate credit instruments and other fixed income securities, foreign exchange instruments and
derivatives that provide exposure to these asset classes.

Toreigh Stuart, Chief Executive Officer of Man Canada, said: “We are very pleased with the success of
this offering. In today’s volatile markets, we believe this has proven that investors are seeking liquid
investments and diversifying returns through exposure to emerging market economies.”
