CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Dec. 15, 2015) - Peyto Exploration & Development Corp. (TSX:PEY) ("Peyto") confirms that the monthly dividend with respect to December 2015 of $0.11 per common share is to be paid on January 15, 2016, for shareholders of record on December 31, 2015. The ex-dividend date is December 29, 2015.

Dividends paid by Peyto to Canadian residents are eligible dividends for Canadian income tax purposes.

Peyto has renewed and extended its syndicated $1.0 billion revolving credit facility with a new stated term date of December 4, 2019. In addition, Syndicate members have agreed to add an accordion provision that allows for the pre-approved increase of the facility up to $1.3 billion, at Peyto's request, through additional commitments by existing facility lenders or by adding new financial institutions to the syndicate. Any additional amounts will be governed by the same financial covenants as the existing $1.0 billion facility with fees being incurred at the time it is requested. This expanded capacity should allow Peyto to capitalize on additional opportunities during this current downturn in commodity prices, if and when they arise.
