CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - July 14, 2011) -

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) announces the July 2011 distribution and the 2011 voluntary cash redemption.

JULY 2011 DISTRIBUTION

The July distribution will be $0.10 per unit to be paid on August 15, 2011 to unitholders of record on July 29, 2011. The ex-distribution date for this payment is July 27, 2011. The Fund'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 unitholders with a yield of approximately 8.3%.

VOLUNTARY ANNUAL CASH REDEMPTION

The redemption date for the Fund's annual voluntary cash redemption will be September 6, 2011. Unitholders have the option to redeem units of the Fund at a price equal to 95% of the average Net Asset Value (NAV) of the three trading days preceding the September 6, 2011 redemption date, less direct costs. Direct costs are expected to be less than 1%. If redemption requests exceed 10% of the aggregate outstanding units of the Fund, the Fund will process redemptions to this maximum on a pro rata basis based on the amount tendered.

Unitholders wishing to redeem their units must provide notice of their intent to redeem with their investment advisor or brokerage office no later than August 16, 2011. Please note that investment firms may impose an earlier deadline in order to facilitate the processing of redemption requests. Therefore, investors are strongly urged to consult their financial advisor or brokerage office directly to confirm the internal deadlines. Registered unitholders (those unitholders that hold a physical share certificate in their name) should contact the Fund's transfer agent, Alliance Trust Company at (403) 237-6111 to redeem their units.

Units that have been tendered and accepted for redemption will remain eligible for the July and August distribution. Payment of the redemption proceeds will be made on or before September 13, 2011.

Please note that any redemption requests made by non-resident unitholders may be subject to withholding tax.
