EnerVest Energy and Oil Sands Total Return Trust Announces Special Meeting of Unitholders

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Feb. 6, 2013) -


EnerVest Energy and Oil Sands Total Return Trust (the "Fund") (TSX:EOS.UN) today announced that a special meeting of unitholders will be held on Tuesday, March 26, 2013 at 10:00 am (Calgary time) at The Conference Centre, First Canadian Centre, 350 - 7th Avenue S.W., Calgary, Alberta. The record date for the purpose of determining the unitholders entitled to receive notice and vote at the special meeting is the close of business on February 15, 2013.

The purpose of the special meeting is to consider and, if deemed appropriate, approve amendments to the Fund's declaration of trust including: expanding the investment focus of the Fund to include other energy issuers in addition to oil sands related issuers and oil and gas issuers, permitting Canoe Financial LP to terminate the Fund without a unitholder meeting if it is no longer economically feasible to continue the Fund or it would otherwise be in the best interests of the Fund, and expanding the circumstances under which the Fund may merge with another fund without a unitholder meeting.

A management information circular providing full details of the proposed amendments will be mailed to all unitholders of record as of February 15, 2013 on or about February 21, 2013. The management information circular will also be available on www.sedar.com and on the Canoe Financial website.
