CALGARY, July 31, 2013 /CNW/ - Middlefield Group, on behalf of MINT Income Fund ("MINT" or the "Fund"), is pleased to announce that it has filed a
final prospectus in connection with an offering (the "Offering") of
Class A units (the "Class A Units"). The Fund may accept cash subscriptions for Class A Units at a price of
$10.0208 per Class A Unit until the day prior to the closing of the

are not eligible to be surrendered for the annual redemption in
November 2013, and (ii) the Class A Units will be converted into
Existing Units automatically as of November 15, 2013 on a one-for-one
