WINNIPEG, Dec. 23 /CNW/ - Exchange Income Corporation (TSX:EIF) (the "Corporation") announced today that it has received the final approval from the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "TSX") to list its common share purchase warrants (the "Warrants") issued on April 7, 2009 and expiring on April 7, 2011 on the TSX. The Warrants were originally issued by the predecessor of the Corporation, Exchange Industrial Income Fund (the "Fund"), and initially entitled the holder to exercise into trust units of the Fund. However, as a result of the conversion of the Fund to the Corporation, the Warrants are now an obligation of the Corporation and each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one common share of the Corporation at a price of $10.00 until April 7, 2011. The TSX has granted its final approval for the listing of the Warrants, and the Warrants will be listed and posted for trading on the TSX on December 29, 2009 under the symbol "EIF.WT".
