CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Nov. 2, 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) provides information on the 2012 voluntary cash redemption.
Voluntary Annual Cash Redemption Information
Requests for redemption of approximately 25.3 million units of the Fund, representing approximately 27.6% of the current issued and outstanding units, have been submitted by unitholders. The Fund's Declaration of Trust limits an annual redemption to 10% of the issued and outstanding units on the Redemption Date of November 22, 2012. Accordingly, redemption requests will be pro rated to between 36% and 44% of units tendered. As there are a significant number of warrants outstanding that may be exercised between now and the Redemption Date, for additional units of the Fund, this pro ration cannot be definitively determined at this time. For greater clarity, in the event no additional warrants are exercised by November 22, 2012, approximately 36% of units tendered will be redeemed. Conversely, if all outstanding warrants are exercised by November 22, 2012, approximately 44% of units tendered will be redeemed. The final results will be communicated to Unitholders as soon as practicable after November 22, 2012.
Payment of the redemption proceeds will be made on or before December 7, 2012 at a redemption price equal to 95% of the average net asset value based on the three business days preceding November 22, 2012, less direct costs. Any units not accepted for redemption will be returned to redeeming unitholders on or before December 7, 2012.
Units that have been accepted for redemption will remain eligible for the November 2012 distribution.
