Penn West Petroleum, declared that it received notification on September 4, 2015 from the New York Stock Exchange that Penn West is no longer in compliance with one of the NYSEs continued listing standards applicable to Penn West because the average closing price of Penn Wests common stock was less than US$1.00 per share over a successive 30 trading day period. As of September 2, 2015, the average closing price of Penn Wests common stock over the preceding successive 30 trading day period was US$0.99 per share. The issuance by the NYSE of the notification is non-discretionary and is sent automatically when a listed companys stock price falls below the minimum price-listing standard.

Non-compliance with the NYSEs price listing standard does not affect Penn Wests business operations or its reporting requirements to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC), nor does it breach or cause an event of default under any of Penn Wests agreements with its lenders. Penn West continues to comply with the terms of all of those agreements. In addition, non-compliance with the NYSE price-listing standard does not affect the continued listing and trading of Penn Wests common shares on the Toronto Stock Exchange (the TSX).

Under the NYSEs rules, Penn West has a period of six months from the date of the NYSE notification to regain compliance with the NYSEs price listing standard and avoid delisting. If Penn West determines to remedy the non-compliance by taking action that requires shareholder approval, then Penn West may seek to obtain such shareholder approval at its next annual meeting, which may take place more than six months from the date of the NYSE notification. Penn West can regain compliance if, during the applicable cure period following receipt of the NYSE notification, on the last trading day of any calendar month, Penn Wests common stock has a closing price and a 30 trading day average closing price of at least US$1.00 per share. In the event that at the expiration of the applicable cure period, Penn West has not regained compliance, the NYSE will commence suspension and delisting procedures. Administration of Penn West will actively monitor the stock price and evaluate all available options in order to regain compliance with the NYSEs price listing standard within the applicable cure period.

Penn West intends to notify the NYSE within 10 business days from the date of the NYSE notification that it intends to cure this price deficiency and return to compliance with the NYSEs price listing standard before the expiration of the applicable cure period.
