CALGARY, April 16, 2014 /CNW/ - (ARX - TSX) ARC Resources Ltd. ("ARC") confirms that a dividend of $0.10 per share designated as an eligible dividend will be paid on May 15, 2014 to shareholders of record on April 30, 2014. The ex-dividend date is April 28, 2014. As at April 16, 2014 the trailing twelve-month payments to investors, including the April 15, 2014 payment, total $1.20 per share.
ARC's shareholders may receive dividend payments in the form of cash or common shares through the company's Stock Dividend Program ("SDP"). Shareholders may reinvest cash dividends into additional common shares of ARC through the Dividend Reinvestment Plan ("DRIP"). Participation in the SDP or DRIP is optional. Shareholders will continue to receive dividend payments in cash unless they choose to participate in the SDP or DRIP.
The SDP provides the option for shareholders to receive dividends in the form of common shares of ARC in lieu of receiving a cash dividend on the dividend payment date. Common shares issued under the SDP are issued at a five per cent discount to the prevailing market price, as defined under the company's SDP, with no broker fees or commissions.
ARC's DRIP provides the option for Canadian holders of ARC common shares to have their cash dividends reinvested into additional common shares of ARC. Common shares issued under the DRIP are issued at a five per cent discount to the prevailing market price, as defined under the company's DRIP, with no broker fees or commissions.
The SDP will generally be available to most shareholders and is expected to provide many shareholders with Canadian income tax treatment that is more favourable than ARC's existing DRIP. Shareholders, wherever resident, are encouraged to consult their own tax advisors regarding the tax consequences to them of receiving cash or stock dividends.
Additional information on the SDP and DRIP including the Dividend Reinvestment/Stock Dividend Enrollment Form can be found on the company's website at www.arcresources.com or by contacting your financial institution or investment advisor. The availability of the SDP and DRIP and the respective terms and conditions are subject to the discretion of ARC's management and the Board of Directors.
ARC is one of Canada's largest conventional oil and gas companies with an enterprise value of approximately $11 billion. ARC's common shares trade on the TSX under the symbol ARX.

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...
