October 29, 2018

CALGARY, Oct. 29, 2018 /CNW/ - Enbridge Income Fund Holdings Inc. (TSX: ENF) (ENF or the Company) will hold a special meeting (Special Meeting) of ENF shareholders on November 6, 2018 in Calgary, Alberta.  At the Special Meeting, shareholders will be asked to vote on a proposal (the Proposed Arrangement) from Enbridge Inc. (Enbridge) to acquire all of the outstanding ENF shares not already owned by Enbridge, resulting in ENF becoming a wholly-owned subsidiary of Enbridge.

Special Meeting of Shareholders

When:             

November 6, 2018


10:00 a.m. MT (12:00 p.m. ET)



Where:           

Metropolitan Conference Centre


333- 4th Avenue S.W., Lecture Theatre


Calgary, Alberta

Two leading independent proxy advisory firms, Glass, Lewis & Co., LLC and Institutional Shareholder Services Inc. (ISS), have both recommended that ENF shareholders vote in favor of the Proposed Arrangement.

Shareholders of record as of the close of business on October 5, 2018 will be entitled to vote at the Special Meeting. The Company encourages shareholders to vote as soon as possible and no later than 10:00 am. (Calgary time) on Friday, November 2, 2018 to ensure their votes are counted. Copies of the Notice of Special Meeting, the Management Information Circular and related documents are available on the Company's website at www.enbridgeincomefund.com and have been filed under ENF's profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

Shareholders who have questions or require assistance in voting their proxy may direct their inquiry to the proxy solicitation agent, D.F. King Canada, by calling toll free in North America at 1-866-521-4425 (1-212-771-1133 by collect call) or by email at inquiries@dfking.com.

Live Audio Webcast

Enbridge will host a live audio webcast of the Special Meeting on November 6, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. Mountain Time (12:00 p.m. Eastern Time). Analysts, members of the media and other interested parties can access the call toll free at (877) 930-8043 or within and outside North America at (253) 336-7522 using the access code of 1499766#.

A webcast replay will be available on the Company's website approximately two hours after conclusion of the Special Meeting. An Mp3 and transcript will follow shortly thereafter. The replay will be available for seven days after the call toll-free (855) 859-2056 or within and outside North America at (404) 537-3406 (access code 1499766#).

Tax Election

The Proposed Arrangement has been structured to provide Canadian ENF shareholders with an automatic tax deferral with respect to their Share Consideration or they can elect to file a Section 85 Election to obtain a full tax deferral, on the Share Consideration and the Cash Component. It is not expected that the incremental gain that could be deferred by filing a Section 85 Election will be significant for most Canadian ENF shareholders. Eligible Canadian resident registered ENF shareholders who wish to make an election under section 85 of the Income Tax Act (Canada) in connection with the Proposed Arrangement must complete, sign and return the Letter of Transmittal indicating that they wish to make such an election, along with the share certificate(s) representing their ENF shares, to AST Trust Company (Canada) (the Depositary) prior to 5:00 p.m. (Calgary time) on November 6, 2018 (the Election Deadline).

Beneficial ENF shareholders that do not have their ENF shares registered in their name (rather, such ENF shares are registered in the name of a broker or other intermediary) should contact their broker or other intermediary for instructions and assistance regarding the timing of, and their eligibility to make, the Section 85 Election in respect of their ENF shares. Every broker and other intermediary has its own procedures with respect to the Section 85 Election and may have a deadline that is earlier than the Election Deadline. ENF shareholders are directed to the "About Enbridge Acquisition FAQs" on the ENF website for more information at www.enbridgeincomefund.com.
