? Raging River reported quarterly results for a 15-day period ended March 31, 2012, following the spin out from Wild Stream Exploration. As it was a stub period, the relevant information in the update primarily pertained to operational results from the company's field activities.
? Although results are preliminary, average initial productivity in the latest Viking wells has shown a ~25% improvement due to "tweaks" in the completion design. The average 60-day production rate for 13 wells completed in Q1/12 with the revised design has been ~50 Bbl/d.
