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 Offering or an exchange of securities of certain eligible issuers. Closing of the Offering is expected to take place on or about August 13, 2013.

The Class A Units have similar attributes as the Fund's existing class of trust units (the "Existing Units") except that (i) the Class A Units 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 basis. Accordingly, all Class A Units and Existing Units (collectively, the "Units") will have the same investment objectives, strategy, guidelines and portfolio, which is comprised primarily of equity income securities, as well as the same net asset value per Unit.
