Mulvihill Premium Global Telecom Fund Announces Semi-Annual Results

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 22, 2008) - Mulvihill Premium Global Telecom Fund (the "Fund") (TSX:GT.A)(TSX:GT.PR.A) announces results for the period ended December 31, 2007. Net realized loss before preferred share transactions amounted to $3.1 million or $1.43 per Unit. Net asset value per Unit was $13.96. Distributions to Preferred shareholders for the period amounted to $0.9 million or $0.41 per Preferred Share.

Each Unit consists of one Class A share and one Preferred share. Preferred share distributions are cumulative at a rate of 5.5% of their par value of $15.00. In respect of the Class A Shares, the Fund's Telecom Universe has experienced a sharp decline resulting in a reduction in the Fund's net asset value per unit. As a result, the distributions on the Class A shares continue to be suspended until such time as the value of the underlying portfolio and coverage on the Preferred shares improves.

The Fund is a mutual fund corporation, which invests its net assets in a diversified portfolio consisting principally of common shares issued by corporations within the Fund's Global Telecom Universe. To generate additional returns above the dividend income earned on the portfolio, the Fund may from time to time, write covered call options in respect of all or part of the common shares in the portfolio. In addition, the Fund may write cash covered put options in respect of securities in which the Fund is permitted to invest.

The Fund's investment portfolio is managed by its investment manager, Mulvihill Capital Management Inc. The Fund's Preferred and Class A shares are listed on The Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbols GT.PR.A and GT.A.
