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.
