Calgary, AB – June 6, 2014 – Dixie Energy Trust (the “Trust“) announces that its administrator, Dixie Energy Ltd. (“Dixie”), has entered into a supplemental trust indenture (the “Supplemental Trust Indenture”) with Olympia Trust Company (the “Trustee”) to amend the trust indenture (the “Trust Indenture”) dated February 28, 2013 between Dixie and the Trustee. The purpose of the amendments is to, among other things, extend the time period required for holding the 2014 annual meeting (the “Annual Meeting“) of holders of trust units of the Trust (“Unitholders“). The amendments to the Trust Indenture do not require Unitholder approval as the rights of Unitholders are not materially prejudiced by such amendments. A copy of the Supplemental Trust Indenture can be found on the SEDAR profile of the Trust at www.sedar.com.
Dixie is currently in the process of evaluating a conversion of the Trust from a trust to a corporate structure (the “Trust Conversion”). If Dixie decides to proceed with the Trust Conversion, the Trustee will be required to convene a meeting of Unitholders (the “Unitholder Meeting”) to, among other things, consider, and if thought fit, approve the Trust Conversion. Dixie believes it is more cost effective and administratively efficient to convene a single meeting of Unitholders for consideration of the Trust Conversion and Annual Meeting matters rather than hold two Unitholder meetings within a short period of time. Therefore, under the Supplemental Trust Indenture, the Annual Meeting for 2014 shall be held not later than December 31, 2014, and for each successive fiscal year of the Trust, on or before the date that is 15 months from the date of the most recently held Annual Meeting.
