O'Leary Founder's Series Income & Growth Fund (TSX: OFS.un / OFS.wt) raises
an additional $5.34 million for total gross proceeds of $155.34 million, as
the Over-Allotment Option is exercised by the Agent

TORONTO, Nov. 12 /CNW/ - O'Leary Funds Management LP is pleased to announce that on November 12, 2009, the O'Leary Founder's Series Income & Growth Fund (the "Fund") successfully issued an additional 445,000 Trust Units and 445,000 Warrants pursuant to the exercise by the Agents of their Over-Allotment Option. Total gross proceeds are now $155,340,000. 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: OFS.un and OFS.wt, respectively.

The initial monthly cash distribution of $0.06 per Trust Unit is anticipated to be payable on December 15, 2009 to Unitholders of record on November 30, 2009. Additionally, each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one Trust Unit at a subscription price of $11.50 on or before 5:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on September 30, 2010.

The Fund will permit investors to capitalize on the knowledge and capabilities of Stanton Asset Management Inc. (the "Portfolio Advisor") 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 the Fund will provide investors with the opportunity to earn attractive income and total returns, while diversifying risk.

    (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 $0.06 per Trust Unit ($0.72 per annum representing an annual
        cash distribution of 6.0% based on the $12.00 per Unit issue price).
