Flaherty & Crumrine Investment Grade Fixed Income Fund Files Final Prospectus for Warrants Offering

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 4, 2009) - Flaherty & Crumrine Investment Grade Fixed Income Fund (TSX:FFI.UN) is pleased to announce that it has filed a final prospectus for an offering of warrants to unitholders of the Fund. Each unitholder of record on December 15, 2009 will receive one-half of a warrant for each unit held.

One warrant will entitle the holder to purchase a unit upon payment of the subscription price. The subscription price will be $9.07, which is equal to the sum of the most recently calculated NAV per unit prior to the date of filing the preliminary prospectus and the estimated per unit fees and expenses of the offering. Warrants may be exercised on or before June 15, 2010, the expiry date. The Fund has applied to list the warrants (under the ticker symbol FFI.WT.A) and the units issuable on the exercise thereof on the TSX. Warrants will be distributed to client accounts on a best-efforts basis after the December 15 record date.

Successful completion of the warrants offering will provide the Fund with additional capital that can be used to take advantage of attractive investment opportunities, and it is also expected to increase the trading liquidity of the units and reduce the ongoing management expense ratio of the Fund.
