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:

    to Renegade to support its acquisition of oil-weighted oil assets in
    Saskatchewan and to transform to a dividend paying company;

    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.

--  Strong management team; 
--  Good valuation metrics;

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

    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
