EnerVest Diversified Income Trust Announces Renewal of Normal Course Issuer Bid

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Sept. 29, 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), announced today that it has renewed its normal course issuer bid ("NCIB") with the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX"). The TSX has accepted EnerVest's Notice of Intention to have a NCIB in place.

As of September 21, 2011 EnerVest had 87,760,409 issued and outstanding units and had a public float of 87,625,547 units. Under the NCIB, in the next twelve months, EnerVest may purchase up to 8,762,554 of its issued and outstanding units on the open market through the facilities of the TSX, representing 10% percent of the public float. However, EnerVest may not purchase more than 2% of the issued and outstanding units during any 30 day period, which as at September 21, 2011 represents 1,755,208 units. The price which EnerVest will pay for any units purchased will be the prevailing market price of such units on the TSX at the time of purchase. Decisions regarding purchases of units pursuant to the NCIB will be made by EnerVest.

The NCIB will commence on October 1, 2011, and will terminate on September 30, 2012 or at such earlier time as the NCIB is completed or terminated at the option of EnerVest.

EnerVest believes that from time to time the purchase of EnerVest units for cancellation will increase the proportionate interest of, and be advantageous to, all remaining unitholders. Any purchases made by EnerVest may also afford increased liquidity to those unitholders of EnerVest who may wish to dispose of their units.
