EnerVest Diversified Income Trust ("EnerVest" or "the Fund") (TSX:EIT.UN) is pleased to announce the April distribution of $0.10 per unit. The record date for this distribution is April 30, 2010 and the payment date will be May 14, 2010. The ex-distribution date for this payment is April 28, 2010.

About the Distribution

EnerVest's objective is to deliver a consistent, high-yield, monthly cash distribution from a portfolio of income-generating and capital growth oriented securities. At current unit prices, EIT.UN is providing our unitholders with a yield of approximately 8.8%.

Update on the Warrants

Over the past several weeks the EnerVest units have been trading above the warrant subscription price of $13.31. EnerVest units are trading at $13.55 at the close of business on April 16, 2010. EnerVest wishes to remind warrantholders that by exercising their warrants and receiving EnerVest units prior to the April 30, 2010 distribution record date, they will be entitled to receive the next distribution of $0.10 per unit, paid May 14, 2010. The Fund will pay an exercise fee of $0.20 per warrant at the time the warrant is exercised. This fee is payable to the investment advisor of the CDS participant whose client is exercising the warrant.

Warrantholders who wish to exercise their warrants must instruct their investment advisor and provide payment equal to the subscription price for each warrant exercised. Once payment is received the warrants will be cancelled and the investor will receive EnerVest units. Investors are encouraged to consult directly with their investment advisor to confirm the time required to complete this process. Registered unitholders, those who hold a physical unit certificate, who wish to exercise warrants are encouraged to contact Computershare Trust Company of Canada directly at 1-800-564-6253.
