EnerVest Diversified Income Trust Announces Warrant Offering

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Sept. 20, 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 that it has filed its preliminary prospectus, for an offering of Warrants (the "Offering") to unitholders of the Fund. Subject to the Fund obtaining necessary regulatory and TSX approvals, unitholders will receive Warrants on the basis of one-quarter of a Warrant for each whole unit (a "Unit") held on the record date, which will be determined upon the filing of the final prospectus.

Each whole Warrant will entitle the holder to subscribe for one Unit upon payment of the subscription price which will be the lesser of (i) $14.23, which is 95% of the most recently calculated NAV per unit prior to the date of the preliminary prospectus and (ii) 95% of the most recently calculated NAV per unit prior to the date of filing the final prospectus. Subject to more specific terms outlined in the prospectus, the Warrants will be exercisable for nine months following their date of issue, subject to a call right exercisable by the Fund should the trading price of the Units exceed the subscription price for 10 consecutive trading days.

The Fund has applied to list the Warrants distributed under this prospectus, and the Units issuable upon the exercise thereof, on the TSX. Once the Warrants begin trading, Warrant holders will have the opportunity to buy or sell their Warrants, which will trade independently of the existing EnerVest Units.

The Warrants are not qualified for distribution in the United States of America. For further details please consult the prospectus and your investment advisor. A copy of the preliminary prospectus has been filed on SEDAR at www.sedar.com. Full details about this Offering will be available on our website at www.canoefinancial.com.
