On behalf of the directors, officers and staff of Arsenal, we would like to thank our shareholders for their continued support.

For more details of the matters considered at the shareholders meeting, shareholders may access the Corporation's Management Information Circular dated May 9, 2014 posted on the Canadian System for Electronic Document Analysis and Retrieval (SEDAR) at www.sedar.com or on the Corporation's website at www.arsenalenergy.com

Share Dividend Plan

As a result of shareholders approval at the meeting, Arsenal expects that the amendment to its Articles and required approvals to implement the Share Divided Plan will be in place by the declaration date of the next quarterly dividend, if such dividend is declared by the Board of Directors. The Share Dividend Plan will allow shareholders to elect to receive dividends in the form of Arsenal common shares instead of receiving a cash dividend. Participation in the Share Dividend Plan is optional and allows Arsenal shareholders to continue to receive cash dividends unless they elect to participate in the Share Dividend Plan.

Benefits of the Share Dividend Plan

- Dividends will be paid in the form of shares to those shareholders who elect to participate in the Share Dividend Plan at the weighted average market price calculated 5 trading days before the payment date and all fees associated with the Share Dividend Plan will be paid by Arsenal.

- Participation in the Share Dividend Plan is not expected to generate dividend income for Canadian shareholders holding their shares in taxable accounts. Shares issued under the Share Dividend Plan will have a nominal cost for Canadian tax purposes and as a result, receipt of share dividends under the Share Dividend Plan will effectively result in a downward adjustment to the shareholder's cost base and would be taxed as a capital gain or loss upon the eventual sale of the shares. In addition, Canadian shareholders participating in the Share Dividend Plan may also benefit if the tax rate on capital gains is lower than the tax rate on dividend income applicable to their individual circumstances.

- Non-Canadian shareholders holding Arsenal shares in a taxable account who elect to participate in the Share Dividend Plan are not expected to be subject to Canadian withholding taxes that typically range from 15% - 25% on dividends paid by Arsenal. Therefore the number of shares received under the Share Dividend Plan will reflect the entire amount of the stock dividend.

- Shareholders can elect to receive share dividends on all or some of their shares.

- Shareholders with tax-deferred accounts are not expected to be impacted.

All shareholders are advised to consult their own tax advisors regarding the tax consequences to them of receiving cash or share dividends. For more details discussing the potential tax consequences of the Share Dividend Plan, please refer to Arsenal's Management Information Circular dated May 9, 2014 filed on SEDAR and available on our website at www.arsenalenergy.com.

How to Enroll in the Share Dividend Plan

Shareholders wishing to participate in the Share Dividend Plan should contact their broker or intermediary or, in the case of registered shareholders, contact our transfer agent, Alliance Trust Company, or visit our website to obtain the necessary enrolment forms.
