Canexus Announces Purchase of Additional Foreign Exchange Option Protection and September Cash Distribution

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Sept. 5, 2007) - Canexus Income Fund (TSX:CUS.UN) (the "Fund") today announced the cash distribution for the period September 1, 2007, to September 30, 2007, has been set at $0.0729 per unit. The distribution will be paid on October 15, 2007, to unitholders of record as at September 28, 2007. This payment is consistent with the Fund's distribution policy.

On August 15, 2007, Canexus acquired foreign exchange call options on US$5.0 million per month which entitles us to sell US dollars and acquire Canadian dollars at a price of US$0.9497 per Canadian dollar from September 5, 2007, through to February 27, 2008. These options are designed to protect our cash flow if the Canadian dollar strengthens while allowing our cash flow to benefit from any devaluation of the Canadian dollar relative to the US dollar. This new call option program protects more than half our net US dollar cash flow per month through February 27, 2008. All long-term debt is denominated in US dollars to further manage currency risk.
