EnerVest Diversified Income Trust Announces Beginning of Warrant Trading

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Aug. 23, 2012) -

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

EnerVest Diversified Income Trust ("EnerVest" or the "Fund") (TSX:EIT.UN) announced today that warrants recently issued to its unitholders under a Warrant Offering have begun trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) under the symbol EIT.WT.C.

Each unitholder of record on August 22, 2012 was entitled to receive one-quarter of a warrant for each EnerVest unit held. Warrants will be distributed to client accounts by brokers and custodians on a best-efforts basis after the record date.

At any time prior to the expiry date of 5:00 p.m. (Calgary time) on February 22, 2013 each whole warrant will entitle the holder to subscribe for one unit of EnerVest upon payment of the subscription price of $13.26. Warrantholders must deliver payment and instructions sufficiently in advance to allow the broker/dealer to properly exercise the warrants on the Warrantholder's behalf. Warrantholders are encouraged to contact their broker/dealer, as each broker/dealer may have an earlier cut-off time to accept warrant exercise instructions.

Proceeds from exercise of the warrants will provide the Fund with additional capital, allowing the Fund to take advantage of investment opportunities and may reduce the ongoing management expense ratio of the Fund.

The current effective yield on the warrant subscription price of $13.26 is approximately 9 percent.

The Fund will pay an exercise fee of $0.30 per warrant at the time the warrant is exercised, payable to the investment advisor of the dealer whose client is exercising the warrant.

The warrants are not qualified for distribution in the United States of America. For further details please consult the final prospectus and your investment advisor. A copy of the final prospectus has been filed on SEDAR at www.sedar.com. Full details about the Warrant Offering are available on our website at www.canoefinancial.com or you can contact us at 1-877-434-2796.

Distribution

The EnerVest Diversified Income Trust pays a monthly distribution of $0.10 per unit, which has been confirmed for the remainder of 2012. The next monthly distribution will be paid on September 14, 2012 to unitholders of record on August 31, 2012. If a unitholder exercises their warrants sufficiently in advance of the distribution record date (August 31, 2012), the unitholder will be entitled to receive that monthly distribution. Units not issued prior to each monthly distribution record date will not be eligible to receive the applicable distribution. Record, payment and ex-distribution dates for each distribution will continue to be provided via news release on a monthly basis.
