Great Lakes Hydro Income Fund Announces Filing of Audited Annual Financial Statements and Restatement


    GATINEAU, QC, March 31 /CNW Telbec/ - (GLH.UN) - Great Lakes Hydro Income
Fund (the "Fund") today announced that it has filed with the regulatory
authorities its audited annual consolidated financial statements and
management's discussion and analysis for the fiscal year ended December 31,
    The restatement relates to the legal transfer of an unused substation.
While arranging the transfer in early 2008, it was realized that the
commitment to transfer the asset arose in a prior period. As a result, a
long-term liability has been retroactively recorded in 2006 to recognize the
liability which had not been properly recorded at the time. The net impact on
the Fund's 2007 and 2006 financial statements is an increase in liabilities of
approximately $4.7 million and an approximate $4.4 million reduction in
Unitholders' Equity.
    The restatement is a non-cash event and does not impact the Fund's
Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows.
