Teranet Announces Appointment of Special Committee and Approval of Unitholder Rights Plan

    TORONTO, Sept. 5 /CNW/ - Teranet Income Fund (TSX: TF.UN) (the "Fund")
announced that the board of directors of Teranet Inc. ("Teranet"),
administrator of the Fund, has established a special committee of independent
directors (the "Special Committee") to manage the process that Teranet has
established and this Special Committee will also evaluate the proposal by
Borealis Infrastructure Management Inc. ("Borealis") to make an unsolicited
offer to acquire all of the outstanding trust units of the Fund and Class B
limited partnership units of Teranet Holdings Limited Partnership.
    The Special Committee, together with Teranet's advisors, will evaluate
and consider the adequacy of Borealis' proposal, consider the full range of
alternatives to maximize unitholder value and make a recommendation to the
board of Teranet. Until the Special Committee receives the offer or completes
its review, it will not comment on the offer, nor will it speculate as to any
future course of action it or Teranet may take.
    Until Teranet provides a formal response to the unsolicited bid,
unitholders are advised to take no action with respect to the Borealis offer.
    The Fund also announced that its board of trustees and Teranet's board of
directors approved the adoption of a unitholder rights plan (the "Plan") to
encourage the fair and equal treatment of all unitholders in connection with
any unsolicited take-over bid. The Plan is subject to all required regulatory
approvals and unitholders will be asked to confirm the Plan at a special
meeting of unitholders to be held within six months.
