OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - July 8, 2013) - Brookfield Soundvest Capital Management Ltd. (TSX:BSE.UN) (the "Manager"), the manager of Brookfield Soundvest Equity Fund (the "Fund"), today announced that the Fund intends to purchase up to 383,172 listed units of the Fund (the "Units") for cancellation by way of a normal course issuer bid on the open market through the facilities of the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "TSX") or the following alternative markets, if eligible: CHI-X Canada, Alpha ATS, MATCH Now (Triact Canada), Omega ATS and Pure Trading. The 383,172 Units represent approximately 10% of the public float of the Fund. At June 28, 2013, there were 3,838,106 Units issued and outstanding. The public float of 3,831,723 Units has been calculated as the issued and outstanding Units less the Units held by insiders of the Fund.

The normal course issuer bid will commence on July 10, 2013 and end on July 9, 2014 or on such earlier date as the Fund may complete its purchases or provide notice of termination. The price to be paid for the Units under the normal course issuer bid will be the market price at the time of purchase. All Units purchased by the Fund under this bid will be promptly cancelled.
Under the normal course issuer bid, the Fund may not purchase in any 30 day period more than 76,762 Units, representing 2% of the issued and outstanding Units as at June 28, 2013.

In the past twelve months the Fund has purchased 10,800 Units at an average price of $5.16 per unit under a normal course issuer bid which ended on July 9, 2013.

The Fund commenced trading as Brookfield Soundvest Equity Fund on January 5, 2010 following the merger of Brascan Soundvest Diversified Income Fund and Brascan Soundvest Total Return Fund with Brascan Soundvest Focused Business Trust.

To the knowledge of the Manager, no director, senior office or other insider of the Manager intends to sell any Units under this normal course issuer bid. Sales by such persons through the facilities of the TSX or elsewhere may occur if the circumstances or decisions of any such person changes.
