    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; the level of borrowing by the Fund; 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 November 26, 2007 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.
