(1) "Funds flow from operations" should not be considered an alternative to,
or more meaningful than, cash flow from operating activities as
determined in accordance with IFRS as an indicator of Renegade's
performance. "Funds flow from operations" represents cash flow from
operating activities prior to changes in non-cash working capital,
transaction costs and decommissioning provision expenditures incurred.
Renegade also presents funds flow from operations per share whereby per
share amounts are calculated using weighted average shares outstanding
consistent with the calculation of earnings per share.

(2) Due to the anti-dilutive effect of Renegade's net loss for the three
months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, the diluted number of shares is
equal to the basic number of shares. Therefore, diluted per share
amounts of the net loss are equivalent to basic per share amounts.

(3) A conversion ratio of 1 barrel of oil equivalent ("boe"): 6 Mcf has been
used, which is based on an energy equivalency conversion method
primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not necessarily
represent a value equivalency at the wellhead. Boes may be misleading,
particularly if used in isolation.

More particularly, this press release contains statements concerning Renegade's capital expenditure program, Renegade's drilling plans, the expected ability of Renegade to execute on its exploration and development program and Renegade's anticipated production (both in terms of quantity and raw attributes).The forward-looking statements contained in this document are based on certain key expectations and assumptions made by Renegade, including: (i) with respect to capital expenditures, generally, and at particular locations, the availability of adequate and secure sources of funding for Renegade's proposed capital expenditure program and the availability of appropriate opportunities to deploy capital; (ii) with respect to drilling plans, the availability of drilling rigs, expectations and assumptions concerning the success of future drilling and development activities and prevailing commodity prices; (iii) with respect to Renegade's ability to execute on its exploration and development program, the performance of Renegade's personnel, the availability of capital and prevailing commodity prices; and (iv) with respect to anticipated production, the ability to drill and operate wells on an economic basis, the performance of new and existing wells and accounting risks typically associated with oil and gas exploration and production.Although Renegade believes that the expectations and assumptions on which the forward-looking statements are based are reasonable, undue reliance should not be placed on the forward-looking statements because Renegade can give no assurance that they will prove to be correct.
