Enerplus Announces Cash Dividend For June 2012

Stocks in this article: ERF

CALGARY, May 29, 2012 /CNW/ - Enerplus Corporation ("Enerplus") (TSX: ERF) (NYSE: ERF) is pleased to announce that a cash dividend in the amount of CDN$0.18 per share will be payable on June 20, 2012 to all shareholders of record at the close of business on June 8, 2012. The ex-dividend date for this payment is June 6, 2012.

The CDN$0.18 per share dividend is equivalent to approximately US$0.18 per share if converted using a Canadian per US dollar exchange rate of 0.9765. The U.S. dollar equivalent dividend will be based upon the actual Canadian/US exchange rate applied on the payment date and will be net of any Canadian withholding taxes that may be applicable.

The dividend paid by us is considered an "eligible dividend" for Canadian tax purposes. For U.S. income tax purposes, dividends are considered "qualified dividends".

On May 11, 2012 Enerplus shareholders approved the implementation of a Stock Dividend Program ("SDP") for investors effective June 1, 2012.  The SDP is now available to all shareholders of Enerplus, and replaces the Dividend Reinvestment Plan ("DRIP") which was only available to Canadian resident shareholders.  Effective on May 25, 2012, the DRIP plan was terminated. In order to participate in the new SDP and receive stock dividends relating to the June 20 dividend payment date, shareholders must contact their broker or financial intermediary on or prior to June 4, 2012.  If you are a registered owner, click here to complete the enrollment form:  https://www.enerplus.com/files/pdf/investor-relations/Enerplus_Stock%20Dividend_Form_E05.pdf.  For more information on the benefits of the SDP please visit our website at:  http://www.enerplus.com/investor/dividends/stockdividendprogram.cfm.
