Vermilion Energy Trust Reinstates Distribution Reinvestment Plan

Vermilion Energy Trust announced that, beginning with the January 15, 2010 distribution, the Distribution Reinvestment Plan (the Plan) is being reinstated. The Plan allows eligible holders of Trust Units (available only to residents of Canada) to conveniently purchase additional Trust Units by reinvesting their cash distributions. Vermilion Energy Trust is offering a 5% bonus incentive to participate in the Plan. If you participate, you will receive additional trust units equal to 5% of your cash distributions, as applicable, based on a 10 day weighted-average trading price (Investment Price) for trust units issued from treasury or the average market price (Market Purchase Price) for which trust units are acquired through the Toronto Stock Exchange.
