Resolve Announces a Distribution Change

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 19, 2008) -

Attention Business and Financial Editors:

The Trustees of Resolve Business Outsourcing Income Fund (TSX:RBO.UN) announced today that, until further notice, monthly cash distributions to its unitholders will be suspended. The October 2008 distribution will be paid as previously announced.

The Trustees believe that the suspension of distributions is prudent in light of Resolve's need, in the current economic and market environment, to maximize cash available for growth capital expenditures and to provide ongoing capital flexibility.

While the fundamentals of Resolve's business remain sound, the Trustees believe that a conservative approach should be taken in managing the Fund's cash flow and debt levels to ensure the availability of cash required to maintain the business and fund growth opportunities while also providing for ongoing compliance with the terms of Resolve's credit facilities. This step is being taken in the light of the current economic downturn that has negatively impacted Resolve's access to and cost of capital and is impacting certain of Resolve's businesses more than was expected.

The Trustees will provide further updates as circumstances warrant.
