Income Fund (the "Fund"), announces that pursuant to the special meeting held
today, Unitholders have approved the special resolution to liquidate and
dissolve the Fund. 88.19% of the votes expressed at the special meeting were

Given this approval, the Administrator will instruct the Portfolio

ensure that all liabilities of the Fund will be discharged from its assets and
the remaining assets will be distributed in cash to Unitholders proportional

Prior to this final cash distribution, the Administrator will prepare a
closing balance sheet and the auditors of the Fund, PricewaterhouseCoopers
LLP, will audit it. The Administrator expects to proceed with the final cash
distribution as soon as possible after the completion of the audit. The final
cash distribution is anticipated to take place prior to June 30, 2008.
Following the payment on March 14, 2008 to holders of Units on record as
of February 29, 2008, there will be no monthly distribution made by the Fund
prior to the final cash distribution. As of March 11, 2008, the Net Asset
