TORONTO, Sept. 9 /CNW/ - INDEXPLUS Income Fund announced today its
intention to make a normal course issuer bid for its units through the
facilities of the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "TSX"). This normal course
issuer bid is intended to commence on September 11, 2008 and will terminate on
September 10, 2009. In accordance with the Declaration of Trust by which
INDEXPLUS is governed, market purchases pursuant to its normal course issuer
bid may be effected by the Fund.
The Fund had 19,402,845 units issued and outstanding as at September 2,
2008. INDEXPLUS may, during the 12 month period commencing September 11, 2008
purchase on the TSX up to 1,939,050 units, being 10% of the public float of
19,390,502 units and may not, in any 30 day period, purchase more than 388,056
units, being 2% of the units issued and outstanding. INDEXPLUS will hold in
