CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Aug. 13, 2012) -
NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
EnerVest Diversified Income Trust ("EnerVest" or the "Fund") (TSX:EIT.UN) announces that it has filed a final prospectus for an offering of warrants to unitholders of the Fund (the "Offering"). Each unitholder of record on August 22, 2012 will be entitled to one-quarter of a warrant for each EnerVest unit held.
At any time prior to the expiry date of 5:00 p.m. (Calgary time) on February 22, 2013 each whole warrant will entitle the holder to subscribe for one unit of EnerVest upon payment of the subscription price of $13.26. The subscription price represents a 5% discount to the most recently calculated net asset value per unit prior to the date of the Fund's preliminary prospectus dated May 10, 2012. The warrants are also subject to a call right provision which allows the Fund to call the warrants at any time. If the warrants are called, investors will have 20 business days to exercise them, after which they will expire.
Warrants issued pursuant to the Offering will not be eligible to receive distributions. However, subject to applicable record dates, units received upon exercise of the warrants will be eligible to receive distributions from the Fund.
The warrants are being provided exclusively to EnerVest unitholders. Unitholders will have the opportunity to exercise their warrants to acquire additional units at a pre-determined price potentially lower than the market price of EnerVest units. Proceeds from exercise of the warrants will provide the Fund with additional capital, allowing the Fund to take advantage of investment opportunities and may reduce the ongoing management expense ratio of the Fund.
The warrants distributed under this prospectus have been conditionally approved for listing on the TSX under the symbol EIT.WT.C. The units issuable upon exercise of the Warrants will be freely tradable EnerVest units (EIT.UN). Once the warrants begin trading, investors will have the opportunity to buy or sell the warrants, which will trade independently of the existing EnerVest units. Warrants will be distributed to client accounts by brokers and custodians on a best-efforts basis after the record date. The Fund will pay an exercise fee of $0.30 per warrant at the time the warrant is exercised, payable to the investment advisor of the CDS participant whose client is exercising the warrant.
The warrants are not qualified for distribution in the United States of America. For further details please consult the final prospectus and your investment advisor. A copy of the final prospectus has been filed on SEDAR at www.sedar.com. Full details about this Offering will be available on our website at www.canoefinancial.com or you can contact us at 1-877-434-2796.
