MONTREAL, Nov. 28, 2011 /CNW/ - O'Leary Funds Management LP (the "Manager"), the trustee and manager of O'Leary Canadian Diversified Income Fund (the "Fund") announces that the date to determine the exchange ratios for the exchange offer by the Fund has been extended to December 5, 2011.

The Fund has been created to invest in investment grade and high yield corporate bonds and dividend-paying equity securities primarily of large and mid-cap Canadian issuers, and to a lesser extent of dividend-paying equity securities of large-cap U.S. issuers.
