Pursuant to the Arrangement, Sabretooth has acquired all of the issued and outstanding common shares of Bear Ridge ("Bear Ridge Shares") for aggregate consideration to Bear Ridge shareholders of 18.6 million Sabretooth common shares and $57.25 million in cash. Sabretooth now has 39.2 million shares outstanding, of which approximately 47% are held by former Bear Ridge shareholders. Bear Ridge is now a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sabretooth.

Pursuant to the terms of the Arrangement and the results of prorating, Bear Ridge shareholders who elected to receive Sabretooth common shares under the Arrangement will receive, for each Bear Ridge Share held, 0.525 of a Sabretooth common share, and shareholders who elected to receive cash under the Arrangement will receive, for each Bear Ridge Share held, approximately $0.973 in cash and 0.282 of a Sabretooth common share.

Sabretooth will continue to be managed by its current executive team and Board of Directors, with the addition of Mr. Vincent Chahley, former director of Bear Ridge, as a director of Sabretooth.

Sabretooth Highlights

With the Arrangement, Sabretooth has added to its high quality land and production base. Sabretooth now has;

- Approximately 155,000 net acres of undeveloped land and an expanded and diversified portfolio of low risk multi-zone drilling and completion opportunities in the Peace River Arch area in Alberta and British Columbia.

- Operatorship of 70% of its production, 85% gas weighted.

- Increased cash flow and critical mass, facilitating additional drilling in the Peace River Arch and British Columbia core areas.

Sabretooth believes that this strategic business combination is an exciting growth opportunity augmenting its already attractive land and production position.
