Keyera Announces Dividend Increase

CALGARY, Feb. 17 /CNW/ - Keyera Corp. ("Keyera") (TSX:KEY) (TSX:KEY.DB) (KEY.DB.A) announced today a 6.7% increase in its monthly cash dividend from $0.15 to $0.16 per share, beginning with the March 2011 dividend payable on April 15, 2011. With this increase, Keyera's annual dividend will be $1.92 per share. This is the eighth dividend increase since Keyera went public in 2003, and represents a 7.5% compound annual growth rate in dividends since that time.

"I am very pleased to announce this latest increase to our monthly dividend," said Jim Bertram, President and CEO. "Over the past several years, we have grown our business substantially in our Gathering and Processing and Liquids Business Units. This dividend increase is a result of our strong financial performance, low payout ratio and numerous business initiatives. It is also consistent with our philosophy of increasing our dividend when possible, while balancing future capital needs and maintaining a prudent capital structure."
