OFI Income Fund announces March 2007 Cash Distribution

    OTTAWA, March 22 /CNW/ - OFI Income Fund (OFB.un) announced today that
its March cash distribution of $ 0.104167 per Fund unit covering the period of
March 1, 2007 to March 31, 2007, will be paid on April 16, 2007 to unitholders
of record at the close of business on March 30, 2007.
    In light of a challenging environment due to delays in the start-up of
the new Tillsonburg facility and the softening housing market, no distribution
will be paid to the holders of Class B limited partnership units for the
quarter period from January 1, 2007 to March 31, 2007. Joseph Skarzenski,
President, Chief Executive Officer and Chair of the Board of Trustees of the
Fund, stated "With this decision the trustees of the Fund are erring on the
side of caution, regardless of our significant cash position standing at
approximately $6.0 million at the end of February". This highlights how the
unique structure, put in place at the time of the Fund's IPO in September
2005, works to protect the public unitholders in times of market uncertainty,
thereby ensuring that Fund unitholders will receive their cash distribution in
