O'Leary Canadian Income Opportunities Fund (TSX: OCY.un/OCY.wt) raises an additional $4.3 million for total gross proceeds of $130.6 million, as the Over-Allotment Option is exercised by the Agents

    TORONTO, June 18 /CNW/ - O'Leary Funds Management LP is pleased to
announce that on June 17, 2009, the O'Leary Canadian Income Opportunities Fund
(the "Fund") successfully issued an additional 385,000 Trust Units and 385,000
Warrants pursuant to the exercise by the Agents of their Over-Allotment
Option. Total gross proceeds are now $130,620,000. The Units issued at
closing, together with the Units issued pursuant to the Over-Allotment Option,
have separated into Trust Units and Warrants and now trade on the Toronto
Stock Exchange independently under the symbols: OCY.un and OCY.wt.
    The initial monthly cash distribution of $0.09 per unit is anticipated to
be payable on July 15, 2009 to unitholders of record on June 30, 2009.
Additionally, each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Trust Unit at a
subscription price of $12.00 on or before 5:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on November
30, 2010.
    The Fund will permit investors to capitalize on the knowledge and
capabilities of Stanton and Savtrev, Inc. ("O'Leary") who will work together
to identify securities providing income and the potential for capital
appreciation. The Portfolio Advisor and O'Leary believe that a portfolio of
primarily Canadian corporate bonds, convertible debt securities, preferred
shares, income trust units and dividend-paying equities, will provide
investors with the opportunity to earn attractive total returns and income,
while diversifying risk.

    The Fund's investment objectives are:

    (i) to maximize total return for holders of Trust Units ("Unitholders"),
        consisting of distributions, interest and dividend income and capital
        appreciation; and

    (ii) to provide Unitholders with monthly distributions initially targeted
         to be $0.09 per Trust Unit ($1.08 per annum representing an annual
         cash distribution of 9.0% based on the $12.00 per Unit issue price).

    The syndicate of agents was co-led by CIBC World Markets Inc. and RBC
Capital Markets and includes BMO Capital Markets, National Bank Financial
Inc., Scotia Capital Inc., Blackmont Capital Inc., HSBC Securities (Canada)
Inc., Raymond James Ltd., Canaccord Capital Corporation, Dundee Securities
Corporation and Wellington West Capital Markets Inc.
