O'Leary BrIC-Plus Income & Growth Fund: Announces Exchange Ratios

TORONTO, March 10 /CNW/ - O'Leary Funds Management LP (the "Manager"), the trustee and manager of O'Leary BrIC-Plus Income & Growth 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 for the Fund dated February 24, 2010. The closing of the initial public offering of Units is expected to occur on March 19, 2010.

The Fund has been created to invest globally primarily in publicly-traded dividend-paying equity securities, preferred shares, convertible debt securities and corporate bonds of issuers having market capitalizations of at least $1 billion, and having significant operations or sales in major emerging markets such as Brazil, Russia, India and China, as well as other rapidly developing countries such as Taiwan, South Korea, Australia, Mexico and others. The Fund's investment objectives are:

    
    (i)    to maximize total return for holders of Trust Units
           ("Unitholders"), consisting of distributions, interest and
           dividend income and capital appreciation; and

    (ii)   to provide Unitholders with monthly distributions initially
           targeted to be $0.05 per Trust Unit ($0.60 per annum representing
           an annual cash distribution of 5% based on the $12.00 per Unit
           issue price).
    

The Manager has retained Stanton Asset Management Inc. (the "Portfolio Advisor") to provide investment advisory services to the Fund. The Portfolio Advisor is a Canadian investment firm focused on global investment opportunities, and is also the manager of a variety of specialized funds. The Portfolio Advisor, together with Savtrev, Inc., will implement the investment strategy of the Fund.

On or before April 1, 2012, the Fund will become an open-end mutual fund, the Trust Units of the Fund will be delisted and the Trust Units will become redeemable at their net asset value per Trust Unit on a daily basis. Prospective purchasers may purchase Units either by cash payment or by an exchange of freely tradable securities of each class or series of securities described in the table below.

The number of Units issuable in exchange for the securities of an exchange eligible issuer (the "Exchange Ratio") deposited by a prospective purchaser pursuant to the Exchange Option was determined for income trusts, preferred shares and dividend-paying equity securities by dividing the volume weighted average trading price of such securities on the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "TSX") during the five consecutive trading days ending on March 8, 2010 (the "Pricing Period"), as adjusted to reflect distributions declared by an Exchange Eligible Issuer that will not be received by the Fund, by $12.00. For greater certainty, the distribution payable on the securities of any Exchange Eligible Issuer that are deposited under the Exchange Option and which have a record date before the Closing will be received by the prospective purchaser who deposited such securities and not by the Fund. The Exchange Ratios were rounded down to four 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 CUSIP number, its ticker symbol, its volume weighted average trading price during the Pricing Period and the Exchange Ratios.
