Enerplus pays monthly cash dividends to our shareholders. Dividends are paid from the cash flow generated from the sale of our oil and natural gas production. Cash dividends are paid to shareholders of record on or about the last day of each month. For U.S. shareholders, dividends are converted into US$ on the payment date.
Effective with the October 2014 dividend, all dividends will now be paid on or about the 15th day of the month, approximately five days earlier than previously paid. All record dates and ex-dividend dates will also be adjusted accordingly with future record dates being on or about the last business day of the previous calendar month. We continue to expect that all dividends paid by Enerplus are considered an “eligible dividend” for Canadian tax purposes. For U.S. income tax purposes, Enerplus’ dividends are considered “qualified dividends”. Click here for more information on the tax treatment of Enerplus’ dividends.
