Reasons for and Benefits of the Arrangement
Both Baytex and Raging River expect the Arrangement to offer a number of long-term strategic, financial and operational benefits and advantages for shareholders, including the following:
Share Exchange Information and Tax Treatment
Pursuant to the Arrangement, Raging River shareholders will receive the Baytex shares they are entitled to receive on a taxable basis unless they complete and file a Letter of Transmittal and Election Form and elect to receive the Baytex shares on a tax-deferred basis.
Generally, a Raging River shareholder whose adjusted cost base of their Raging River shares is greater than the fair market value of the Raging River shares should not need to elect to receive the Baytex shares pursuant to the Arrangement on a tax-deferred basis since, absent such election, such Raging River shareholder will realize a capital loss on the disposition of the Raging River shares pursuant to the Arrangement.
Generally, a Raging River shareholder whose adjusted cost base of their Raging River shares is less than the fair market value of the Raging River shares should consider electing to receive the Baytex shares pursuant to the Arrangement on a tax-deferred basis prior to the Election Deadline in order to receive the Baytex shares pursuant to the Arrangement on a tax-deferred basis and, accordingly, not realize a capital gain on the disposition of their Raging River shares pursuant to the Arrangement.
Raging River shareholders who wish to receive the Baytex shares on a tax-deferred basis must send in (i) their Letter of Transmittal and Election Form and (ii) their share certificate(s) or Direct Registration System Advice representing their Raging River shares to Computershare Investor Services Inc. (the "Depositary") prior to 5:00 p.m. (Calgary time) on August 20, 2018 (unless such time is extended by agreement of Raging River and Baytex) (the "Election Deadline").
Raging River shareholders who do not hold their Raging River shares in their own name should instruct their broker or other intermediary to complete and deliver a Letter of Transmittal and Election Form in respect of such holders' Raging River shares to the Depositary prior to the Election Deadline.
The information contained above relating to the tax impacts of the Arrangement and the procedure relating to the exchange of Raging River shares for Baytex shares is of a summary nature and therefore is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by the more detailed information contained in the Circular which is important and should be reviewed carefully.

Advisory Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
In the interest of providing the shareholders of Baytex and Raging River and potential investors with information regarding Baytex, Raging River and the combined company resulting from the Arrangement, including management's assessment of future plans and operations, certain statements in this press release are "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and "forward-looking information" within the meaning of applicable Canadian securities legislation (collectively, "forward-looking statements"). In some cases, forward-looking statements can be identified by terminology such as "anticipate", "believe", "continue", "could", "estimate", "expect", "forecast", "intend", "may", "objective", "ongoing", "outlook", "potential", "project", "plan", "should", "target", "would", "will" or similar words suggesting future outcomes, events or performance. The forward-looking statements contained in this press release speak only as of the date thereof and are expressly qualified by this cautionary statement.
Specifically, this press release contains forward-looking statements relating to but not limited to: the expected long-term benefits of the Arrangement; that the combined organization will have world class assets, have an attractive growth and free cash flow profile, have a strong balance sheet, have high return oil-weighted assets, have a superior capability to optimize capital allocation, have strong oil price diversification, have an enhanced platform for developing emerging plays, have a top tier team with a focus on operational excellence and have increased scale and trading liquidity; whether the Election Deadline will be extended; and certain other matters relating to the Arrangement.
These forward-looking statements are based on certain key assumptions regarding, among other things: the timing of receipt of regulatory and shareholder approvals for the Arrangement; the ability of the combined company to realize the anticipated benefits of the Arrangement; petroleum and natural gas prices and differentials between light, medium and heavy oil prices; well production rates and reserve volumes; the ability to add production and reserves through exploration and development activities; capital expenditure levels; the ability to borrow under credit agreements; the receipt, in a timely manner, of regulatory and other required approvals for operating activities; the availability and cost of labour and other industry services; interest and foreign exchange rates; the continuance of existing and, in certain circumstances, proposed tax and royalty regimes; the ability to develop crude oil and natural gas properties in the manner currently contemplated; and current industry conditions, laws and regulations continuing in effect (or, where changes are proposed, such changes being adopted as anticipated). Readers are cautioned that such assumptions, although considered reasonable by Baytex and Raging River at the time of preparation, may prove to be incorrect.
Actual results achieved will vary from the information provided herein as a result of numerous known and unknown risks and uncertainties and other factors. Such factors include, but are not limited to: completion of the Arrangement could be delayed if parties are unable to obtain the necessary regulatory, stock exchange, shareholder and court approvals on the timeline planned; the Arrangement will not be completed if all of these approvals are not obtained or some other condition of closing is not satisfied; the volatility of oil and natural gas prices and price differentials; the availability and cost of capital or borrowing; that credit facilities may not provide sufficient liquidity or may not be renewed; failure to comply with the covenants in debt agreements; risks associated with a third-party operating the Eagle Ford properties; availability and cost of gathering, processing and pipeline systems; public perception and its influence on the regulatory regime; changes in government regulations that affect the oil and gas industry; changes in environmental, health and safety regulations; restrictions or costs imposed by climate change initiatives; variations in interest rates and foreign exchange rates; risks associated with hedging activities; the cost of developing and operating assets; depletion of reserves; risks associated with the exploitation of properties and ability to acquire reserves; changes in income tax or other laws or government incentive programs; uncertainties associated with estimating oil and natural gas reserves; inability to fully insure against all risks; risks of counterparty default; risks associated with acquiring, developing and exploring for oil and natural gas and other aspects of operations; risks associated with large projects; risks related to thermal heavy oil projects; risks associated with use of information technology systems; risks associated with the ownership of securities of Baytex and Raging River, including changes in market-based factors; risks for United States and other non-resident shareholders, including the ability to enforce civil remedies, differing practices for reporting reserves and production, additional taxation applicable to non-residents and foreign exchange risk; and other factors, many of which are beyond control. These and additional risk factors are discussed in Baytex's Annual Information Form, Annual Report on Form 40-F and Management's Discussion and Analysis for the year ended December 31, 2017, filed with Canadian securities regulatory authorities and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and in Raging River's Annual Information Form for the year ended December 31, 2017, filed with Canadian securities regulatory authorities and in Baytex's and Raging River's other public filings.
The above summary of assumptions and risks related to forward-looking statements has been provided in order to provide shareholders and potential investors with a more complete perspective on the combined company's current and future operations and such information may not be appropriate for other purposes.
There is no representation by Baytex or Raging River that actual results achieved will be the same in whole or in part as those referenced in the forward-looking statements and neither Baytex nor Raging River 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 law.
