Encana Amends Its Dividend Reinvestment Plan

CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/25/13 -- Encana Corporation (TSX:ECA) (NYSE:ECA) ("Encana") today announced that it has amended its Dividend Reinvestment Plan (the "DRIP") to permit the company to issue from its treasury Encana common shares at a discount to the average market price for the common shares (as defined in the DRIP) for the applicable dividend payment date. Beginning in the second quarter of 2013, Encana's Board of Directors has determined that all common shares distributed to participating shareholders pursuant to the DRIP will be newly issued from Encana's treasury at a discount of two percent.

By participating in the DRIP, shareholders can automatically reinvest all or any portion of the cash dividends paid on their common shares in additional Encana common shares, without charge for any commissions, service charges or brokerage fees under the DRIP. By issuing common shares at a discount under the DRIP, Encana is seeking to encourage greater shareholder participation in the program.

Shareholders who currently participate in the DRIP will automatically have the discount applied to the reinvestment of any future cash dividends declared by the Board of Directors, and do not need to complete a revised Enrollment Authorization Form to continue to participate in the DRIP. The two percent discount will remain in effect for all cash dividends that may be declared by Encana's Board of Directors, beginning in the second quarter of 2013, until otherwise announced by Encana.

Registered shareholders who wish to participate in the DRIP must deliver a completed Enrollment Authorization Form to CIBC Mellon Trust Company, as DRIP Agent, no later than 4:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on the fifth (5th) business day immediately preceding the record date for the payment of cash dividends on common shares. Beneficial owners of common shares who wish to participate in the DRIP must arrange with their broker, investment dealer, financial institution or other nominee to enroll in the DRIP on their behalf. Nominee holders of common shares should consult the DRIP for instructions on enrolling one or more eligible beneficial owners of common shares who wish to participate in the DRIP.

A complete copy of the DRIP, together with a related series of Questions and Answers and an Enrollment Authorization Form, are available on Encana's website at www.encana.com or by contacting CIBC Mellon Trust Company at (866) 580-7145 or (416) 682-3863 or by email at [email protected].

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
