Middlefield Can-Global REIT Income Fund Announces Exchange Ratios

CALGARY, Nov. 9, 2012 /CNW/ - Middlefield Group, on behalf of Middlefield Can-Global REIT Income Fund (the "Fund"), is pleased to announce the exchange ratios for the exchange offer by the Fund (the "Exchange Option") being made under the final prospectus of the Fund dated October 26, 2012.

The Fund's investment objectives are to:

(i) provide holders of units of the Fund (the "Units") with stable monthly cash distributions, and

(ii) enhance long-term total return through capital appreciation of the Fund's investment portfolio,

through an investment strategy which is focused on primarily equity-based securities of issuers operating in the Canadian and global real estate sectors utilizing active and low-cost passive portfolio management.

The initial target distribution yield for the Fund is expected to be 6.5% per annum based on the original subscription price (or $0.05416 per Unit per month or $0.65 per Unit per annum).

Middlefield Capital Corporation will act as the investment advisor to the Fund.

The number of Units issuable for each class of security of an Exchange Eligible Issuer (as listed below) (the "Exchange Ratio") has been determined for common shares and income trust units, by dividing the weighted average trading price of such security on the Toronto Stock Exchange (or such other exchange or market on which such security is then listed) during the period of five consecutive trading days ending on November 9, 2012 (the "Pricing Period"), as adjusted to reflect distributions declared by any Exchange Eligible Issuer that will not be received by the Fund, by $10.00. Holders of securities of Exchange Eligible Issuers who deposited such securities pursuant to the Exchange Option will continue to be holders of record up to but not including the date of the closing of the offering of Units and will be entitled to receive distributions in respect of such securities of Exchange Eligible Issuers up to but not including such date. Each Exchange Ratio will be rounded down to five decimal places.

The table below sets out the Exchange Eligible Issuers, the securities of which may be accepted by the Fund pursuant to the Exchange Option including the name of the Exchange Eligible Issuer, its ticker symbol, its CUSIP number, its ISIN, its volume weighted average trading price during the Pricing Period and the Exchange Ratios.
