Boyd Group Income Fund announces Normal Course Issuer Bid for its trust units


    WINNIPEG, Oct. 4 /CNW/ - The Boyd Group Income Fund (TSX: BYD.UN) (the
"Fund") today announced that the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") has approved
its Notice of Intention to carry out a Normal Course Issuer Bid (the "Bid") to
purchase for cancellation, from time to time, as the Fund considers advisable,
its issued and outstanding trust units (the "Units"). There are currently
9,638,204 Units issued and outstanding. Of this amount, 9,359,149 Units
constitute the "public float" calculated in accordance with the rules of the
TSX. In accordance with TSX requirements, the maximum number of Units to be
purchased on a daily basis will be 2,047. The Fund intends to purchase for
cancellation up to a maximum of 515,844 Units, or approximately 5.5% of the
Fund's current "public float". Purchases will be made on the open market
through the TSX. The price the Fund will pay for any Units purchased through
the Bid will be the prevailing market price of the Units on the TSX at the
time of such purchase. The actual number of Units that may be purchased for
cancellation and the timing of such purchases will be determined by the Fund.
    The Bid will commence on October 15, 2007 and will terminate on
October 14, 2008 or such earlier time as the Bid is completed or terminated at
the option of the Fund.
    The Trustees of the Fund believe that, from time to time, the market
price of the Units may not fully reflect the underlying value of the Units and
that at such times the purchase of Units would be in the best interest of the
Fund. Such purchases will increase the proportionate ownership interest of all
remaining unitholders. In addition, the purchases by the Fund may enhance
liquidity for Fund unitholders.
    The Fund has not made any purchases of Units during the previous 12
