January 30, 2014

CALGARY , Jan. 30, 2014 /CNW/ - Middlefield Group , on behalf of MINT Income Fund ("MINT" or the "Fund"), would like to remind Warrant Holders that the Warrants expire tomorrow January 31, 2014 at 4:00 p.m. ( Toronto time). Warrants exercised on or before the Warrant Expiry Time will receive the Fund's January 31, 2014 distribution of $0.06 per Unit. Each Warrant of the Fund entitles the holder to purchase one MINT Unit at a subscription price of $9.88 . Assuming the exercise of all Warrants, the Fund's current net asset value is $10.39 , which is in excess of the $9.88 subscription price. Dealers may impose earlier deadlines for exercise. Warrants not exercised by the Warrant Expiry Time will automatically expire and be void and of no value. The net proceeds from the exercise of Warrants will be invested by the Fund in accordance with its investment objectives which include providing holders of Units with (i) a high level of sustainable income distributed monthly over the life of the Fund, (ii) a cost-effective method of reducing the risk of investing in high income securities, and (iii) the potential for capital appreciation by investing in an actively managed, diversified portfolio comprised primarily of high yielding equity securities. As at December 31, 2013 , the Fund generated a total annualized return of 8.3%, 5.4%, 16.8%, 12.0% and 11.6% respectively for the one, three, five and ten year periods then ended and the period since inception on March 13, 1997 . The Fund's Units and Warrants trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbols MID.UN and MID.WT, respectively. Certain statements included herein constitute forward-looking statements.
