Can-60 Income Corp. Files Preliminary Prospectus

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 24, 2010) - Can-60 Income Corp. (the "Company") announces that it has filed a preliminary prospectus dated August 23, 2010 with the securities regulatory authorities of all of the Canadian provinces and territories for an initial public offering of equity non-voting shares (the "Shares") at $10 per Share.

The Company was created to invest on an equal weight basis in a portfolio (the "Portfolio") of the securities of the issuers comprising the S&P/TSX 60 Index, from time to time (the "Portfolio Issuers"). The S&P/TSX 60 Index is comprised of 60 of the largest Canadian issuers listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange as measured by market capitalization. The Portfolio will initially be approximately equal weighted, and each month First Asset Investment Management Inc. (the "Manager" or "First Asset") will employ a covered call option writing program on approximately, and not more than, 25% of the securities of each Portfolio Issuer, in order to seek to earn attractive tax effective income from dividends, distributions and call option premiums, lower the overall volatility of returns associated with owning a portfolio of these securities, and to generate capital appreciation for holders of Shares of the Company (the "Shareholders").

The objectives of the Company are to provide Shareholders with:

  (a) quarterly distributions;
  (b) the opportunity for capital appreciation; and
  (c) lower overall volatility of Portfolio returns than would be experienced by owning a portfolio of the securities of the issuers that comprise the S&P/TSX 60 Index.

The Company will not have a fixed distribution, but intends to set periodic distribution targets. Based on the Manager's current estimates, the initial distribution target for the Company is expected to be $0.1625 per quarter ($0.65 per annum to yield 6.5% on the subscription price of $10 per Share).

First Asset is a Canadian wealth management company that manages and administers approximately $1.65 billion in assets.

Prospective purchasers may purchase Shares either by cash payment or an exchange of freely tradeable securities of each class or series of securities described in the table below. Prospective purchasers under the Exchange Option will be required to deposit their eligible exchange securities prior to 5:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on September 23, 2010 in the manner described in the preliminary prospectus.
