Desjardins Securities to tender to Liquor Stores offer

    MONTREAL, June 6 /CNW Telbec/ - Desjardins Securities Inc. announced
today that it intends to tender 606,600 units of Liquor Barn Income Fund
(TSX:LBN.UN) to the enhanced offer from Liquor Stores Income Fund
    "We believe that this is a situation where the combined entities will be
greater than the sum of the parts," said Ron Mayers who manages a proprietary
fund for Desjardins Securities. "Under the circumstances, we feel that the
best way for us to realize value, as Liquor Barn unit holders, is to tender
and receive units in Liquor Stores. We feel that the value of the units of the
combined entity will exceed the value of the units of Liquor Barn on a
stand-alone basis ", Mayers said.

largest cooperative financial group in Canada. It offers a full range of
