Canadian Income Management (TSX: CNM.UN, CAI.DB) Provides an Update on Net Asset Value and Debentures

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 9, 2008) - Canadian Income Management CIM Limited ("CIM"), the administrator of Canadian Income Management Trust (the "Trust")(TSX:CNM.UN), and Canadian Income Management Inc. (the "Corporation") (TSX:CAI.DB) wish to provide an update on the Trust's net asset value ("NAV") and the Corporation's debentures.

As of October 8, 2008, the NAV, calculated in accordance with Canadian Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, was $nil per unit. Due to the recent market volatility and the leveraged component of Canadian Income Management Limited Partnership (the "Partnership"), if the Corporation's debentures were to mature today, the Partnership could repay approximately $87 of the principal amount per debenture. The debentures mature on August 31, 2012, and the Corporation will provide regular updates as the conditions change. The updates will be available on the Canadian Income Management page of

The market volatility that has contributed to the decline in the Trust's NAV has not compromised the investment manager's outlook concerning the interest payments on the debentures. The investment manager continues to closely monitor all positions in the Partnership's portfolio (the "Portfolio") and is confident that the cash flow currently being generated from the Portfolio is sufficient to cover all debenture interest payments and expenses. Based on the current distribution amounts within the Portfolio, the interest coverage on the debentures after operating expenses of the Partnership, Trust and the Corporation is 1.53 times.
