diversiTrust™ Income+ Fund Announces Issuer Bid

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - April 27, 2007) - Goodman & Company, Investment Counsel Ltd. ("Goodman & Company"), the manager of diversiTrust™ Income+ Fund (TSX:DTP.UN) (the "Fund"), announces a normal course issuer bid. In accordance with the terms of its initial public offering, the Fund intends to purchase, through the facilities of the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX"), up to 614,908 trust units of the Fund (the "Trust Units") representing approximately 10% of the public float. The public float of the Fund as of April 17, 2007 was 6,149,087 Trust Units.

The Trust Units may be purchased for cancellation commencing on May 1, 2007 through to April 30, 2008 through the facilities of the TSX and may be purchased when the net asset value per Trust Unit exceeds its trading price. A Notice of Intention to Make a Normal Course Issuer Bid has been accepted by the TSX effective as of April 17, 2007.

The purpose of the normal course issuer bid is to provide the Fund with a mechanism to decrease the potential spread between the net asset value per Trust Unit and the market price of the Trust Units. The Fund had 6,200,318 Trust Units issued and outstanding as of April 17, 2007. For the period May 1, 2006 to April 17, 2007, 149,600 Trust Units were purchased by the Fund under its normal course issuer bid at an average market price of $12.36575 per Trust Unit (excluding commission charges).

The Fund is a TSX-listed closed-end investment trust, which seeks to provide a stable monthly distribution through investment in a diversified portfolio consisting primarily of business, resource, real estate and utility trusts, dividend paying equities and other high-yielding securities. As of April 17, 2007 the net asset value was $12.61 per Trust Unit and the closing trading price was $11.69 per Trust Unit (representing a discount of 7.3% when measured against the net asset value per Trust Unit).
