Bonavista Energy Corporation Confirms Dividend for December

Bonavista Energy Corporation Confirms Dividend for December 17, 2012 
CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/15/12 -- Bonavista Energy
Corporation ("Bonavista") (TSX:BNP) confirms that its monthly cash
dividend generated from November production will be $0.12 per common
share, payable on December 17, 2012. Our long term objective is to
maintain a dividend policy that provides an attractive cash return to
our shareholders, while reinvesting the remainder of our funds from
operations to increase our production and equity value.  
Our dividend policy is reviewed monthly and is based on a number of
factors including current and future commodity prices, foreign
exchange rates, our commodity hedging program, current operations and
future investment opportunities. We continually monitor the impact of
all of these factors and have adjusted our capital program for 2012
accordingly. We remain concerned about sustained low natural gas
prices and the more recent decrease in oil and natural gas liquids
pricing. While we have preserved the current dividend level through a
combination of capital spending adjustments, shareholder
participation in our Dividend Reinvestment Plan, Stock Dividend
Program and non-core asset divestitures, we will continue to closely
monitor the current dividend level throughout the remainder of 2012. 
Bonavista has declared this dividend to be paid on December 17, 2012
to common shareholders of record on November 30, 2012, with an
ex-dividend date of November 28, 2012. The Board of Directors of
Bonavista declared the dividend payable in either cash or common
shares at the election of the shareholder. Any common shareholder
choosing to receive common shares instead of cash must submit his or
her stock dividend confirmation notice no later than 4:30 p.m.
(Calgary time) on the fourth business day immediately prior to the
record date for the declared dividend payment, being November 27,
2012. 
This dividend has been designated as an "eligible dividend" for
Canadian income tax purposes. 
Stock Dividend Program  
At its annual and special meeting of shareholders held on May 3,
2012, the Bonavista shareholders approved the implementation of a
Stock Dividend Program which enables common shareholders to elect to
receive dividends in the form of common shares
 at 95% of the weighted
average market price calculated 5 days before the payment date and
all fees associated with the Stock Dividend Program will be paid by
Bonavista. Participation in the Stock Dividend Program is optional.  
While the Stock Dividend Program is similar to Bonavista's Dividend
Reinvestment Plan, the Stock Dividend Program has certain advantages
which are described in more detail in Bonavista's Management
Information Circular dated March 19, 2012 which is available on SEDAR
at www.sedar.com and on Bonavista's website at
www.bonavistaenergy.com. For further information regarding the Stock
Dividend Program, please contact Valiant Trust Company at
403-233-2801.  
Dividend Reinvestment Plan  
Bonavista also has a Dividend Reinvestment Plan which enables
eligible common shareholders to increase their investment in
Bonavista by reinvesting their monthly cash dividend. We expect to
maintain the Dividend Reinvestment Plan as a complement to our Stock
Dividend Program indefinitely.
