Brompton Equal Weight Income Fund Renews Normal Course Issuer Bid

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Aug. 25, 2005) - Brompton Equal Weight Income Fund (TSX:EWI.UN) intends to renew its normal course issuer bid through the facilities of the TSX to purchase up to 3,156,000 units of the Fund representing approximately 10% of the public float of 31,562,164 units. The Fund had 31,594,834 units issued and outstanding as at August 16, 2005. Since September 2, 2004, the Fund has purchased 95,110 units under its current bid at an average price of $11.88 per unit and has subsequently cancelled such units.

The Trust Units may be purchased for cancellation from September 2, 2005 to September 1, 2006 through the facilities of the TSX and may only be purchased at a price per unit not exceeding the last published net asset value per unit. Purchases pursuant to the normal course issuer bid would be accretive and therefore enhance returns to continuing unitholders.
