TORONTO, March 15, 2013 /CNW/ - 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 April 15, 2013 to shareholders of record at the close of
business on March 28, 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 April 15, 2013, eligible shareholders whose shares are
registered in their name must enroll by no later than 4:00 p.m. on
March 21, 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
