CALGARY, Jan. 3, 2014 /CNW/ - Middlefield Group, on behalf of MINT Income Fund ("MINT" or the "Fund"), is pleased to announce that any Warrants
exercised on or before the Warrant Expiry Time (as defined below) will
receive the Fund's January 31, 2014 distribution of $0.06 per Unit.
Warrants can now be exercised.
Each Warrant of the Fund entitles the holder to purchase one MINT Unit
at a subscription price of $9.88 and can be exercised at any time on or
before 4:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on January 31, 2014 (the "Warrant
Expiry Time"). Dealers may impose earlier deadlines for exercise.
Warrants not exercised by the Warrant Expiry Time will automatically
expire and be void and of no value. Assuming all Warrants were
exercised, the Fund's net asset value as at January 2, 2014 was $10.31.
The net proceeds from the exercise of Warrants will be invested by the
Fund in accordance with its investment objectives which include
providing holders of Units with (i) a high level of sustainable income
distributed monthly over the life of the Fund, (ii) a cost-effective
method of reducing the risk of investing in high income securities, and
(iii) the potential for capital appreciation by investing in an
actively managed, diversified portfolio comprised primarily of high
yielding equity securities.
As at December 31, 2013, the Fund generated a total annualized return of
8.3%, 5.4%, 16.8%, 12.0% and 11.6% respectively for the one, three,
five and ten year periods then ended and the period since inception on
March 13, 1997.
The Fund's Units and Warrants trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange under
the symbols MID.UN and MID.WT, respectively.
