CALGARY, Jan. 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ - Pembina Pipeline Corporation ("Pembina" or the "Company") (TSX: PPL; NYSE: PBA) announced today that its Board of Directors declared a common share cash dividend for January 2015 of $0.145 per share to be paid, subject to applicable law, on February 13, 2015 to shareholders of record on January 25, 2015.
For shareholders receiving their common share dividends in U.S. funds, the January 2015 cash dividend is expected to be approximately U.S. $0.1228 per share (before deduction of any applicable Canadian withholding tax) based on a currency exchange rate of 0.8466. The actual U.S. dollar dividend will depend on the Canadian/U.S. dollar exchange rate on the payment date and will be subject to applicable withholding taxes.
Pembina's Board of Directors also declared quarterly dividends on the Company's preferred shares: Series 1, 3, 5 and 7. All preferred share dividends are payable on March 1, 2015 to shareholders of record on February 1, 2015:

|Preferred Shares, Series 5 (PPL.PR.E)||$0.3125|
|Preferred Shares, Series 7 (PPL.PR.G)||$0.28125|
These dividends are designated "eligible dividends" 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.
Pembina pays cash dividends on its common shares in Canadian dollars on a monthly basis to shareholders of record on the 25th calendar day of each month (except for the December record date, which is December 31st), if, as and when determined by the Board of Directors. Should the record date fall on a weekend or a statutory holiday, the effective record date will be the previous business day. The dividend payment date is the 15th of the month following the record date. Should the payment date fall on a weekend or on a holiday the business day prior to the weekend or holiday becomes the payment date.
