PetroBakken is pleased to provide two convenient cost-effective methods for shareholders to increase their investment in PetroBakken. The Share Dividend Plan ("SDP") is now available to most shareholders, enabling shareholders to receive dividends in the form of common shares at a 5% discount to the average market price. While similar to our Dividend Reinvestment Plan ("DRIP"), the SDP has certain tax attributes which may be more attractive to some shareholders.
