Pembina Pipeline Corporation (Pembina) announced that its Board of Directors declared a common share cash dividend for December 2015 of CAN$0.1525 per share to be paid, subject to applicable law, on 15 January 2016 to shareholders of record on 31 December 2015. This dividend is designated an ‘eligible dividend’ for Canadian income tax purposes. For non-resident shareholders, Pembina's common share dividends should be considered ‘qualified dividends’ and may be subject to Canadian withholding tax.

The actual US dollar dividend will depend on the Canadian/US dollar exchange rate on the payment date and will be subject to applicable withholding taxes.
