    This press release contains forward-looking information. The
forward-looking information contained in this press release is based on
historical information concerning the distributions and dividends paid on the
securities of issuers historically included in the portfolio of MINT Income
Fund. Actual future results, including the amount of distributions paid by the
Fund, may differ from the monthly distribution amount. Specifically, the
income from which distributions are paid may vary significantly due to:
changes in portfolio composition; changes in distributions and dividends paid
by issuers of securities included in the Fund's portfolio from time to time;
there being no assurance that those issuers will pay distributions or
dividends on their securities; the declaration of distributions and dividends
by issuers of securities included in the portfolio will generally depend upon
various factors, including the financial condition of each issuer and general
economic and stock market conditions; and the uncertainty of realizing capital
gains. The risks, uncertainties and other factors that could influence actual
results are described in the Fund's prospectus dated May 30, 2006 and other
documents filed by the Fund with the Canadian securities regulatory
authorities. The forward-looking information contained in this press release
constitutes the Fund's current estimate, as of the date of this press release,
with respect to the matters covered hereby. Investors and others should not
assume that any forward-looking statement contained in this press release
represents the Fund's estimate as of any date other than the date of this
press release.
