This press release may contain forward-looking statements including expectations of future production, cash flow and earnings. Certain information regarding Exceed in this news release including management's assessment of future plans and operations, timing of drilling and tie-in of wells, productive capacity of the new wells, expected production rates, drilling success rates, dates of commencement of production, may constitute forward-looking statements under applicable securities laws and necessarily involve risks. These statements are based on current expectations that involve a number of risks and uncertainties, which could cause actual results to differ from those anticipated. These risks include, but are not limited to: the risks associated with the oil and gas industry (e.g. operational risks in development, exploration and production; delays or changes in plans with respect to exploration or development projects or capital expenditures; the uncertainty of reserve estimates; the uncertainty of estimates and projects relating to production, costs and expenses, and health, safety and environmental risks), commodity price, price and exchange rate fluctuation and uncertainties resulting from the potential delays or changes in plans with respect to exploration or development projects or capital expenditures. Readers are cautioned that the foregoing list of factors is not exhaustive. Additional information on these and other factors that could affect Exceed's operations or financial results are included in Exceed's reports on file with Canadian securities regulatory authorities that may be accessed at www.sedar.com or through the Company's website, www.exceedenergy.com. Furthermore, the forward-looking statements contained in this news release are made as at the date of this news release and Exceed does not undertake any obligation to update publicly or to revise any of the included forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as may be required by applicable securities laws.

Disclosure provided herein in respect of barrels of oil equivalent (boe) may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A boe conversion ratio of 6 Mcf: 1 Bbl is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead.

The TSX Venture Exchange has not reviewed and does not accept responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
