Brand Leaders Plus Income Fund Files Final Prospectus

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 06/27/14 -- Harvest Portfolios Group Inc. (the "Manager") is pleased to announce that a final prospectus for Brand Leaders Plus Income Fund (the "Fund") has been filed with, and a receipt therefor issued by, the securities regulatory authorities in each of the provinces and territories of Canada.

The Fund proposes to issue Class A Unit and Class U Units at a price of $10.00 per Class A Unit and US$10.00 per Class U Unit (the "Offering"). The Toronto Stock Exchange has conditionally approved the listing of Class A Units and upon the Fund fulfilling all the listing requirements, the Class A Units will be listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol HBF.UN.

The Fund's investment objectives are to provide Unitholders with (i) monthly cash distributions; (ii) the opportunity for capital appreciation; and (iii) lower overall volatility of portfolio returns than would otherwise be experienced by owning equity securities of Brand Leaders directly.

To seek to achieve its investment objectives, the Fund will invest in an equally-weighted portfolio of equity securities of 20 Brand Leaders from the Brand Leaders Investable Universe that have a market capitalization of at least US$10 billion at the time of investment and meet certain investment characteristics.

In order to seek to generate additional returns, Highstreet Asset Management Inc. (the "Investment Manager" or "Highstreet") may sell call options each month on up to 33% of each equity security held in the portfolio.

Highstreet will be responsible for the execution of the Fund's overall investment strategy, including managing the composition of the portfolio.

The indicative distribution amount will be $0.0542 per Class A Unit per month ($0.65 per annum representing an annual cash distribution of 6.5% based on the $10.00 per Class A Unit issue price) or US$0.0542 per Class U Unit per month (US$0.65 per annum representing an annual cash distribution of 6.5% based on the US$10.00 per Class U Unit issue price).

The Offering is scheduled to close on July 24, 2014.

The syndicate of agents for the Offering is being co-led by CIBC, BMO Capital Markets and Scotia Capital Inc., and includes National Bank Financial Inc., Canaccord Genuity Corp., Desjardins Securities Inc., GMP Securities L.P., Raymond James Ltd., Dundee Securities Ltd., Global Securities Corporation, Industrial Alliance Securities Inc. and Mackie Research Capital Corporation (collectively, the "Agents").
