Coxe Global Agribusiness Income Fund to Be Wound Up

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Aug. 30, 2016) -


BMO Nesbitt Burns Inc., the administrator (the "Administrator") of Coxe Global Agribusiness Income Fund (TSX:CAG.UN) (the "Fund") announces the special meeting (the "Special Meeting") of unitholders of the Fund (the "Unitholders") was held today. At the Special Meeting, Unitholders did not approve the previously announced merger of the Fund and Global Water Solutions Fund, as contemplated in the management information circular dated July 29, 2016 (the "Circular").

In accordance with the Fund's declaration of trust, the Administrator may, in its discretion, on at least 30 days' notice to Unitholders, terminate the Fund without the approval of Unitholders if, in the opinion of the Administrator, it would be in the best interests of the Unitholders to terminate the Fund. As set out in the Circular, since the Fund's investment manager tendered its resignation and the Merger was not approved, the Fund will be terminated in accordance with its declaration of trust.

The Fund will be terminated on October 7, 2016, or as soon as practicable after such date. Following the conversion of the assets of the Fund to cash, and the satisfaction of, or provision for, all liabilities of the Fund, the net assets of the Fund will be distributed to Unitholders on a pro rata basis based on the NAV of the classes of Units. Following such distribution, the Fund will terminate.
