Aberdeen Asia-Pacific Income Investment Company Limited Announces Normal Course Issuer Bid

Aberdeen Asia-Pacific Income Investment Company Limited Announces Normal 
Course Issuer Bid 
TORONTO, July 16, 2013 /CNW/ - Aberdeen Asia-Pacific Income Investment Company 
Limited (TSX: FAP) (the "Company"), a closed-end investment company trading on 
The Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX"), announced today that the TSX has accepted 
notice of its intention to make a normal course issuer bid, through which the 
Company will make open market purchases on the TSX or the following 
alternative markets, if eligible: Alpha ATS, CHI-X Canada, MATCH Now (TriAct 
Canada), Omega ATS and Pure Trading.  During the bid, which will commence July 
18, 2013 and end no later than July 17, 2014, the Company may purchase up to 
2,624,900 ordinary shares, which is approximately 5% of the total of the 
Company's 52,498,015 ordinary shares issued and outstanding as at July 5, 
2013. The actual number of shares purchased, the time of the purchases and the 
prices at which the shares will be bought will depend upon future market 
conditions. The Company will not purchase in any 30 day period more than 
1,049,960 ordinary shares, being 2% of the 52,498,015 issued and outstanding 
ordinary shares as at July 5, 2013. The Company will cancel shares purchased 
under the bid.  In the previous 12 months, the Company did not purchase any of 
its outstanding shares under its current normal course issuer bid which will 
expire on July 17, 2013.

The Company's directors believe that from time to time the purchase of 
ordinary shares of the Company may be a worthwhile investment for the Company 
that should benefit continuing shareholders.  The Company's directors believe 
that normal course issuer bid purchases of shares for cancellation may, by 
reducing the number of outstanding shares, reduce the discount that may exist 
between the market price of the shares and the Company's net asset value per 
share. 
Closed-end funds have a one-time initial public offering and then are 
subsequently traded on the secondary market through one of the stock 
exchanges. The investment return and principal value will fluctuate so that an 
investor's shares may be worth more or less than the original cost. Shares of 
closed-end funds may trade above (a premium) or below (a discount) the net 
asset value (NAV) of the fund's portfolio. There is no assurance that a fund 
will achieve its investment objective. Past performance does not guarantee 
future results.
