Excel Funds Management Inc. Announces Change to Its Mutual Fund Line-Up

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Nov. 17, 2014) - Excel Funds Management Inc. ("Excel Funds") announces that it has, after obtaining all of the requisite unitholder and regulatory approvals, completed its merger of the Excel Capital Income Fund into the Excel High Income Fund, effective November 17, 2014.

Unitholders of each series of the Excel Capital Income Fund have received securities of the equivalent series of the Excel High Income Fund, determined on a dollar-for-dollar basis.

Securities of Excel Capital Income Fund have not been offered for investment as at April 8, 2013, following the March 21, 2013 federal budget which included measures that would eliminate certain tax benefits in investment funds that use forward contracts to convert income to capital gains for tax purposes. The Excel Capital Income Fund will be wound up as soon as possible following the merger.

Excel Funds looks forward to continuing to serve the interests of unitholders of the Excel High Income Fund.
