Global Healthcare Income & Growth Fund Announces Distributions

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Oct. 20, 2015) - Global Healthcare Income & Growth Fund (the "Fund") (TSX:HIG.UN) is pleased to announce its first distribution in the amount of $0.06167 per unit to be paid on November 13, 2015 to unitholders of record at the close of business on October 30, 2015. This distribution covers the period from the closing of the initial public offering on September 24, 2015 to October 30, 2015 and is, therefore, higher than the anticipated normal monthly distribution rate.

The Fund also announces distributions in the amount of $0.05 per unit for record dates in November and December 2015 as follows:

Record Date Payment Date
November 30, 2015 December 14, 2015
December 31, 2015 January 15, 2016

The Fund is pleased to announce that it has initiated a distribution reinvestment plan ("DRIP"). The DRIP provides unitholders with the ability to automatically reinvest distributions and realize the benefits of compound growth. Under the DRIP, if the 10 day weighted average trading price prior to the distribution payment date (the "Trading Price") is higher than the net asset value per unit ("NAV"), such that the Fund is trading at a premium to NAV, unitholders will benefit from reinvesting distributions at a lower value, generally being NAV. If the Trading Price of the units is lower than the NAV, such that the Fund is trading at a discount to NAV, unitholders will generally benefit from reinvesting at below NAV through the acquisition of units in the market. The DRIP provides an attractive reinvestment mechanism in both circumstances when the Fund trades at a premium or a discount to NAV. Contact your investment advisor to enroll in the Fund's DRIP and please visit our website for complete details of the DRIP plan.
