Resolve Business Outsourcing Income Fund Trustees Approve Unitholder Rights Plan

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews – Dec. 8, 2006) –

Attention Business Editors:

Resolve Business Outsourcing Income Fund (the "Fund")(TSX:RBO.UN) announced that the Trustees of the Fund have approved the adoption of a unitholder rights plan ("Rights Plan") for which unitholder approval will be sought at the Resolve annual meeting of unitholders to be held by June 8, 2007. The TSX has accepted notice for filing of the Rights Plan.

The purpose of the Rights Plan is to provide unitholders and the Trustees of the Fund with adequate time to consider and evaluate any unsolicited bid made for the Fund, to provide the Trustees with adequate time to identify, develop and negotiate value-enhancing alternatives, if considered appropriate, to any such unsolicited bid, to encourage the fair treatment of unitholders in connection with any take-over bid for the Fund and to ensure that any proposed transaction is in the best interests of the unitholders of the Fund.

The Rights Plan is similar to other rights plans adopted by many Canadian income trusts and corporations. The Rights Plan is not triggered if an offer to acquire Fund units would allow sufficient time for unitholders to consider and react to the offer and would allow unitholders to decide to tender or not to tender without the concern that they will be left with illiquid Fund units should they not tender. The issuance of the rights will not change the manner in which unitholders trade their Fund units.

The Rights Plan was not proposed in response to, or in anticipation of, any pending, threatened or proposed acquisition or take-over bid. The Trustees did not adopt the Rights Plan to prevent a take-over of the Fund, to secure the continuance of management or the directors in their respective offices or to defer offers for the units of the Fund.
