Winalta Announces Increase in Quarterly Dividend

CALGARY, March 5, 2014 /CNW/ - Winalta Inc. ("Winalta" or the "Company") is pleased to announce a quarterly cash dividend of $0.02 per class "A" common share payable on March 31, 2014 to all shareholders of record on March 17, 2014.  The ex-dividend date for this payment is March 13, 2014. This dividend is an eligible dividend for Canadian income tax purposes.

The Board of Directors has approved a $0.01 per share quarterly dividend increase to $0.02 per share for an effective $0.08 per share dividend on an annualized basis. The increase in the quarterly dividend is a result of strong operating performance in conjunction with better visibility of revenue in deployment of both Integrated Wellsites Systems and conventional Wellsites in the steadier SADG and Pad drilling industry.

Winalta Oilfield Rentals specializes in innovative and high-quality modular buildings for the Western Canadian Oil and Gas Industry. Winalta's rental fleet is comprised of single-unit Wellsites, Integrated Wellsite Systems (IWS), Dedicated Geo Labs, and Drill Camps.

Neither the TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
