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.
All dividends are paid on or about the 15th day of the month. Record dates and ex-dividend dates are on or about the last business day of the previous calendar month. For U.S. shareholders, dividends are converted into US$ on the payment date. 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.
