Bonterra Declares October Dividend
Bonterra has announced its dividend to holders of common shares for the month of October 2008. The record date for the dividend is November 24, 2008, and the ex-dividend date is November 20, 2008.
The dividend will be paid on November 28, 2008. The amount of the dividend will be $0.26 per common share as previously disclosed in the press release dated November 6, 2008. As the previously announced Plan of Arrangement closed on November 12, 2008, the payment is a dividend to shareholders and accordingly, no further distributions will be made to unitholders of Bonterra Energy Income Trust. Any unitholder who has traded units ex-distribution prior to the issuance of this press release is invited to contact Bonterra for further information. The dividend is considered an "eligible dividend" for tax purposes.
In addition, further to the press release dated November 12, 2008, pursuant to articles of reorganization which were filed in connection with a Plan of Compromise and Arrangement under the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act (Canada) and the Canada Business Corporations Act, the former common shares of SRX Post Holdings Inc. (the predecessor name to Bonterra Oil & Gas Ltd.) were converted into Class A redeemable preferred shares on November 12, 2008. These Class A redeemable preferred shares may be redeemed and cancelled by Bonterra Oil & Gas Ltd. for no consideration.
