forward-looking information contained in this press release is based on
historical information concerning the distributions and dividends paid on the
securities of issuers historically included in the portfolio of Uranium
Focused Energy Fund. Actual future results, including the amount of
distributions paid by the Fund, may differ from the monthly distribution
amount. Specifically, the income from which distributions are paid may vary

distributions and dividends paid by issuers of securities included in the
Fund's portfolio from time to time; there being no assurance that those
issuers will pay distributions or dividends on their securities; the
declaration of distributions and dividends by issuers of securities included
in the portfolio will generally depend upon various factors, including the
financial condition of each issuer and general economic and stock market
conditions; and the uncertainty of realizing capital gains. The risks,
uncertainties and other factors that could influence actual results are
described under "Risk Factors" in the Fund's prospectus dated February 27,
2007 and other documents filed by the Fund with the Canadian securities
regulatory authorities. The forward-looking information contained in this
