CALGARY, June 11 /CNW/ - Enterra Energy Trust ("Enterra" or the "Trust") has filed a preliminary base shelf prospectus in Canada and in the U.S. under which the Trust may periodically sell up to $300 million in trust units, subscription receipts or warrants.
This shelf prospectus, when approved in final form by regulators, will provide Enterra with the ability to raise equity efficiently under a prospectus supplement for a period of 25 months. The Trust's previous shelf prospectus was filed in 2005 and expired in December 2007. If Enterra intended to issue new units during the life of the shelf, a required prospectus supplement would be filed, detailing the terms of any offering and the purpose of the funds being raised.
Blaine Boerchers, Enterra's Chief Financial Officer, said, "Now that we have our conventional banking facilities in good order, the filing of the shelf prospectus further enhances our financial flexibility. Enterra has no plan to sell units at this time but, if a suitable, value-adding opportunity arose, this filing would allow us to do so in a timely manner."
