Faircourt Asset Management Inc. Announces Reduction in Distribution for the Shares of Faircourt Gold Income Corp.

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Sept. 18, 2015) -

THIS PRESS RELEASE IS NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION IN THE UNITED STATES OR OVER UNITED STATES WIRE SERVICES.

Faircourt Asset Management Inc. (the "Manager"), as manager of Faircourt Gold Income Corp. (TSX:FGX) (the "Fund"), announces today that the monthly distribution on the shares will be reduced from $0.048 per month per share ($0.576 per annum per share) to $0.024 per month per share ($0.288 per annum per share) on a going forward basis.

The Fund's distribution, funded primarily by option writing, has helped the Fund outperform the S&P/TSX Global Gold Index since the Fund's inception. However, with the prolonged and very challenging environment experienced by gold companies since 2012, the Fund has seen its Net Asset Value (NAV) decline. The Manager believes that the gold market may be approaching a bottom, and managing the distribution level represents an opportunity to assist in growing the NAV of the Fund. Specifically, in a rising price environment a lower distribution will reduce the potential for capping the Fund's returns through reduced option writing on securities currently held in the Fund's portfolio. As a result, the Manager determined that it is in the best interest of the Fund to reduce the monthly distribution from $0.048 per share per month to $0.024 per share per month, representing a current yield of approximately 11%.

The September distribution payable on the shares of the Fund will be paid as follows:
