Parkland Income Fund Announces Its Intention To Pay Special Distribution As A Combination Of Cash And Fund Units

    RED DEER, AB, Jan. 7 /CNW/ - Parkland Income Fund (TSX: PKI.UN)
previously announced that a special distribution of $0.77 per Fund unit would
be paid in cash or a combination of cash and Fund units on January 15, 2008 to
unitholders of record on December 31, 2007. The Board of Directors has
determined the payment will be made in a combination of cash and Fund units.
The cash payments will total $0.35 per Fund unit while the unit payments will
total $0.42 per Fund unit. The number of Fund units was established with
reference to the 10 day weighted average trading price as at date of record
December 31, 2007 which was $16.05 per unit. Consequently, the Fund unit
portion of the special distribution will be 0.02617 Fund units per Fund unit
owned on the date of record. No fractional Fund units will be issued. A cash
payment will be made for the fractional amounts. The special payments will
apply equally to Parkland's Fund Units and Class B and Class C Limited
Partnership units.
