TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 12/07/12 -- Dundee Corporation
(TSX:DC.A)(TSX:DC.PR.A)(TSX:DC.PR.B) (the "Corporation") today
announced that it has chosen to discontinue the services of each of
Standard & Poor's and DBRS with regards to maintaining a credit
rating for the Corporation. The Corporation has determined that since
it has limited amounts of public debt outstanding, and no current
intention to issue additional public debt, there is no need for it to
maintain the credit ratings, nor incur the significant associated
costs of maintaining such ratings.
