Toronto, September 3, 2003: Mulvihill Premium U.S. (the "Fund") has declared an increase in its quarterly distribution to C$0.40 per Unit payable September 30, 2003 to unitholders of record as of September 15, 2003.

The Fund has sufficient capital loss carryforward amounts to shelter realized gains in the current period and provide capital loss carryforwards for future periods. As a result, distributions in the current period were non-taxable and will reduce each unitholders cost base.

In order to generate returns above the dividend income generated by the portfolio, the Fund may write covered call options in respect of all or part of the securities 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.

Unitholders of Mulvihill Premium U.S. may elect to have their distributions reinvested into additional units by enrolling in the Fundıs Distribution Reinvestment Plan. Unitholders may enroll in the Plan by contacting their investment advisor.
