CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - March 16, 2015) - Newalta Corporation (TSX:NAL) announced that it has declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.125 per common share for the first quarter of 2015, payable on April 15, 2015 to all shareholders of record on March 31, 2015. The ex-dividend date is March 27, 2015.

On February 19, 2015, the Board of Directors suspended the Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRIP), effective with the dividends payable on April 15, 2015, to eliminate the dilution associated with the issuance of Shares through the DRIP.

Newalta expects that the dividends will be "eligible dividends" for income tax purposes and thus qualify for the enhanced gross-up and tax credit regime for certain shareholders.
