Dividends

Dividends are an integral part of our value proposition and strategy.  For approximately 25 years we have provided a source of monthly cash flow to our investors, paying over $5 billion, or approximately $43.76* per share, in cash distributions and dividends over that time. We remain committed to our dividend paying model as we execute our differentiated strategy and build future value for our investors. 

*To December 31, 2013, based on shares issued at inception.

FINANCIAL FLEXIBILITY

We have taken several measures to safeguard our dividend, maintain our financial and balance sheet strength and provide additional flexibility to ensure that we have the financial means and discipline to develop the Lindbergh thermal bitumen project. These measures include:

We remain committed to a dividend of $0.04 per share per month and expect to be able to fund the capital requirements of our conventional drilling program, as well as the first phase (12,500 bbl/d) of Lindbergh through 2014, without taking on additional debt.
