The ex-dividend date is December 27, 2012.
Newalta recently implemented a dividend reinvestment plan (the "DRIP") that provides eligible shareholders with the opportunity to reinvest their quarterly dividends to acquire additional Newalta shares at a purchase price equal to 95% of the Average Market Price (as defined in the DRIP). Enrollment forms are available on our website at www.newalta.com : www.newalta.com or from Valiant Trust Company, as plan agent. The deadline for registered shareholders to complete and deliver enrollment forms to Valiant Trust Company is 3:00 pm (MST) on the business day immediately preceding the record date. Beneficial shareholders should contact their broker, investment dealer, financial institution or other nominee through which their Newalta shares are held for enrolment instructions and deadlines.
Newalta expects that the dividends will be "eligible dividends" for income tax purposes and thus qualify for the enhanced gross-up and tax credit regime for certain shareholders.
