TORONTO, Sept. 16, 2013 /CNW/ - September 16, 2013 - Marret Resource Corp. (TSX: MAR) (the "Company") announced today that it has declared a monthly dividend of $0.023334 per share on its outstanding common shares. The dividend is payable on October 15, 2013 to shareholders of record at the close of business on September 30, 2013, and is an eligible dividend pursuant to subsection 89(14) of the Income Tax Act (Canada).
The Company previously announced the adoption of a Dividend Reinvestment Plan (the "Plan") which allows eligible shareholders to direct that cash dividends paid on all or a portion of their common shares be reinvested in additional common shares. For the purposes of this dividend, any such shares to be acquired for the Plan will be purchased by way of market purchase through the facilities of the TSX or alternative Canadian markets in accordance with the terms of the Plan. The price of the shares purchased by the Plan will be the average market price, excluding any brokerage commissions, of all shares so purchased by the Plan Agent, Computershare Trust Company of Canada. No assurances can be made that there will be a sufficient number of additional shares available in the market to satisfy the requirements of the Plan. If an insufficient number of shares are available in the market to satisfy the requirements of the Plan, any deficit will be made up by a supplementary treasury purchase. The price of the shares purchased by a supplementary treasury purchase, if applicable, will be the average price of the shares successfully purchased by market purchase, without any additional discount.
To participate in the Plan in time for the reinvestment of this dividend payable on October 15, 2013, eligible shareholders whose shares are registered in their name must enroll by no later than 4:00 p.m. on September 23, 2013. Eligible shareholders who hold their shares in the name of a nominee should contact their nominee to inquire about the timing of their enrolment. Any enrollment form received after such time will be applied to the next applicable dividend record date. Enrollment under the Plan can otherwise be made at any time. Once a participant has enrolled in the Plan, participation continues automatically unless terminated or suspended in accordance with the terms of the Plan.
A copy of the Plan and the enrolment form are available on Marret Asset Management Inc.'s website at www.marret.com or by calling Marret at (416) 214-5800 or at Computershare's website at www.investorcentre.com.
