CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/13/14 -- Encana Corporation
(TSX:ECA)(NYSE:ECA) announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary,
Encana Acquisition ULC (the "Purchaser") has received the required
consents to approve the proposed amendments to the indenture under
which the 5.80% Notes due May 1, 2014 (CUSIP / ISIN Numbers 292506AA0
/ US292506AA00) (the "Notes") issued by Encana Holdings Finance Corp.
(the "Issuer") were issued. The Purchaser has also extended the
consent payment deadline to 10:00 a.m., New York City time, on March
28, 2014 (the "Extended Consent Payment Deadline"). The complete
terms and conditions of the tender offer and consent solicitation are
set forth in the Offer to Purchase and Solicitation of Consents (the
"Tender Offer and Consent Solicitation Statement"), dated February
28, 2014, and the related Letter of Transmittal and Consent which
have been sent to holders of the Notes. Under the terms of the tender
offer and consent solicitation, holders who have previously tendered
their Notes can no longer validly withdraw those Notes from the
tender offer.  
Based on information provided by the Tender Agent and Information
Agent for the tender offer and consent solicitation, holders of an
aggregate principal amount of approximately US$764 million, being
approximately 76% of the aggregate principal amount of the Notes
outstanding, provided consents. The consents received exceed the
amount required to approve the proposed amendments to the indenture
under which the Notes were issued. The Issuer, Encana Corporation, as
guarantor, and Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas, the trustee
under the indenture governing the Notes, intend to execute a
supplemental indenture containing the proposed amendments promptly
following the acceptance for purchase of a majority in aggregate
principal amount of the outstanding Notes pursuant to the terms of
the tender offer and consent solicitation, which is expected to be on
or about March 31, 2014 (the "Settlement Date"). The supplemental
indenture will thereafter be binding on all holders of the Notes,
including holders whose Notes were not purchased in the tender offer. 
Holders who validly tender their Notes at or prior to the Extended
Consent Payment Deadline, and whose Notes are accepted for purchase,
will receive a consent payment equal to US$2.50 per US$1,000
principal amount of Notes in addition to the tender offer
consideration of US$1,004.59 for each US$1,000 principal amount of
the Notes plus accrued and unpaid interest on the tendered Notes from
the last interest payment date to, but not including, the Settlement
Date The tender offer for the Notes will expire at 10:00 a.m. New
York City time, on March 28, 2014 unless extended by the Purchaser.  
The Issuer expects to redeem any and all of the Notes not tendered by
issuing a notice of redemption as soon as practically possible after
the tender offer expires. 
The Purchaser reserves the right to waive any and all conditions of
the tender offer and consent solicitation or to extend the consent
payment deadline or expiry date. If any condition of the tender offer
and consent solicitation is not satisfied, the Purchaser reserves the
right to withdraw the tender offer and consent solicitation and not
accept any Notes for purchase, or to amend the terms of the tender
offer and consent solicitation.
