Noranda Income Fund Postpones Date of Annual General Meeting of Unitholders

SALABERRY-DE-VALLEYFIELD, QUÉBEC--(Marketwired - April 13, 2015) - Noranda Income Fund (TSX:NIF.UN) (the "Fund") announced today that the Board of Trustees of Noranda Operating Trust (the "Board") has postponed the date for the annual general meeting of the holders of priority units and special fund units. Mr. John Swidler, one of the four independent trustees of Noranda Operating Trust, has advised the Fund of his decision not to stand for re-election at the upcoming meeting should a suitable replacement be identified. The Board has determined to retain an executive search firm to assist it in identifying and selecting an Independent Trustee candidate. The meeting has been delayed in order to provide additional time to conduct the search process and to select an acceptable replacement. The Board has not established a new meeting date at this time. The Administrator, on behalf of the Fund, will fix the record date for determining those unitholders entitled to receive notice and vote at the meeting once the new meeting date has been set. The Fund will announce the new meeting and record date in due course.
