Cardinal's long-term objective is to set a dividend policy at prudent levels while withholding sufficient funds to finance capital expenditures required to grow its production base by a target of 5% to 10% annually. This in turn, is expected to provide a stronger base of cash flow leading to consistent dividends into the future. Cardinal's dividend policy is reviewed monthly and is based on a number of factors including current and future commodity prices, foreign exchange rates, the Company's hedging program, current operations including production levels, operating costs, royalty burdens and debt service requirements, available investment opportunities and the satisfaction of applicable corporate liquidity and solvency tests for the declaration and payment of dividends.

Cardinal has declared this dividend to be paid on February 17, 2014 to shareholders of record on January 31, 2014 with an ex-dividend date of January 29, 2014. The Board of Directors of Cardinal has declared the dividend payable in either cash or common shares at the election of the shareholder. This dividend has been designated as an "eligible dividend" for Canadian income tax purposes.
