SPECIAL MEETING OF SHAREHOLDERS
In connection with its previously announced plan of arrangement (the "Arrangement") with Renegade Petroleum Ltd ("Renegade"), Canadian Phoenix has scheduled a special meeting of its shareholders to be held on December 13, 2012 (the "Meeting"). The Notice of Meeting, Management Information Circular (the "Circular"), Form of Proxy and Letter of Transmittal were mailed on November 19, 2012 to the shareholders of record on November 9, 2012, and are available on the Corporation's website www.canadian-phoenix.com and on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
At the Meeting, Canadian Phoenix Shareholders will be asked to consider and vote upon the Arrangement, which, through a series of steps outlined in the Circular, will result in:
1. Canadian Phoenix providing $75 million of its cash and cash equivalents to Renegade to support its acquisition of oil-weighted oil assets in Saskatchewan and to transform to a dividend paying company; 2. Canadian Phoenix shareholders receiving 0.5985 Renegade common shares for each Canadian Phoenix common share, while retaining a common share in the post-Arrangement Canadian Phoenix; and 3. The completion of a $114.3 million private placement of subscription receipts (the "Private Placement") in Canadian Phoenix Acquisition Corp. ("AcquisitionCo), a newly created, wholly-owned subsidiary of Canadian Phoenix. Proceeds from the Private Placement were received in escrow on November 16, 2012. Upon approval and completion of the Arrangement, the Private Placement proceeds will be released from escrow, the subscription receipts will ultimately be converted to common shares of Renegade, and Renegade will take control of AcquisitionCo.
Canadian Phoenix is very pleased to be entering into this transaction with the team at Renegade. This transaction meets all the criteria for which the Canadian Phoenix Board of Directors has been searching over the past two and a half years:
-- Strong management team; -- Good valuation metrics; -- Excellent asset base; and -- Sustainable and defined business plan.
Michael Atkinson, Canadian Phoenix's president and CEO states, "We look forward to supporting Renegade's strong management team as they transform into a dividend paying corporation within the Canadian oil and gas industry. We are very pleased about the valuation metrics of Canadian Phoenix's investment and the solid business model that Renegade is deploying."
In addition to the Arrangement, at the Meeting, the Canadian Phoenix shareholders will also be asked to consider and vote upon the following items concerning the Corporation's post-Arrangement structure:
1. A special resolution authorizing the change of name of Canadian Phoenix to "Knol Resources Corp.", or such other name as the directors of Canadian Phoenix determine is appropriate and which name change will not be implemented unless the Arrangement becomes effective 2. A special resolution approving an amendment to the articles of incorporation of Canadian Phoenix to consolidate the issued and outstanding new common shares of Canadian Phoenix issued in connection with the Arrangement (the "Canadian Phoenix New Common Shares") on the basis of one (1) post-consolidation Canadian Phoenix New Common Share for up to every 10 pre-consolidation Canadian Phoenix New Common Shares and which consolidation will not be conducted unless the Arrangement becomes effective; and 3. Subject to the Arrangement being completed, an ordinary resolution approving a post-Arrangement private placement of Canadian Phoenix New Common Shares and which private placement will not be conducted unless the Arrangement becomes effective.

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...

We’ve worked with dozens of early adopters across numerous industries and will debunk common misperceptions, which starts with understanding that many of the connected products we’ll use over the next 5 years are already products, they’re just not yet connected. With an IoT product, time-in-market provides much more essential feedback than ever before. Innovation comes from what you do with the data that the connected product provides in order to enhance the customer experience and optimize busi...

A critical component of any IoT project is the back-end systems that capture data from remote IoT devices and structure it in a way to answer useful questions. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle large data sets, but they are not well suited to many IoT-scale products and the need for real-time insights. At Fuze, we have developed a backend platform as part of our mobility-oriented cloud service that uses Big Data-based approache...

See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, in product and marketing at Tintri, will discu...
