The board of directors acknowledges the level of support received for Crescent Point's executive compensation and will consider this vote in structuring future compensation packages.

"Our executive compensation programs are adjusted on an ongoing basis to reflect the rapid growth and performance of the company. From inception, Crescent Point's executive compensation has been very aligned with shareholders. In 2013, 90 percent of executive compensation was equity-based, which is restricted and vests in periods of up to three years. To put our 2013 executive compensation in context, our total corporate G&A cost, including equity-based compensation, is one of the lowest among our peers at less than eight percent of our netback. We've calculated the average of our peer group, as listed in our information circular, to be approximately 13 percent," said Hugh Gillard, the chair of Crescent Point's compensation committee. "However, as indicated in the Company's information circular, an independent consultant was retained earlier in the year to provide advice on compensation structure. Once completed, we will provide a timely response to shareholders explaining the actions by the board."

Crescent Point is one of Canada's largest light and medium oil producers, with a market capitalization of more than CDN$18 billion and an annual dividend of CDN$2.76 per common share.
