("Legacy" or the "Company") excludes the effect of outstanding stock options and share warrants outstanding and uses the weighted average common shares (basic) where the Company has a net loss for the period. In calculating, funds generated by operations per share diluted, the Company includes the effect of outstanding stock options and share warrants using the treasury stock method.(3)  Boe means barrel of oil equivalent.  All Boe conversions in this report are derived by converting natural gas to oil equivalent at a ratio of six thousand cubic feet of natural gas to one barrel of oil equivalent.  Boe may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation.  A Boe conversion rate of 1 Boe: 6 Mcf is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead.(4)  In addition to cash consideration paid for acquisitions and as part consideration, thereof, for the year ended December 31, 2011, the Company issued 6.2 million common shares valued at $102.7 million using the share price of Legacy on the acquisition date (2010 - 29.5 million common shares valued at $341.2 million on the acquisition dates) and for the three months ended December 31, 2011, the Company issued no common shares as part consideration for acquisitions (2010 - 0.9 million common shares valued at $10.9 million).ACCOMPLISHMENTSClosed the Pierson Spearfish asset acquisition; acquired high quality, high netback, light oil assets with an associated significant development horizontal drilling inventory in the Company's Williston Basin core areaDrilled 133 gross (99.0 net) oil wells in 2011, with a 100 percent success rate.

Year end 2011 net debt was $376.5 million, representing approximately 1.3 times estimated forward cash flow (using strip pricing)Legacy received the APEX Award for Annual Report of the Year for its 2010 annual report and also was awarded best financial statements and analysis by Oilweek Magazine/ATB Financial at the 36th Annual Report AwardsOperations OverviewAlthough the Company had to navigate challenging operating conditions due to the unprecedented spring runoff and pervasive flooding in the majority of its core operating areas, Legacy was able to successfully advance a number of its key development and emerging light oil resource plays.  The Company drilled 133 gross (99.0 net) oil wells in 2011, up from 97 gross (66.9 net) wells in 2010, with a 100 percent success rate.  In the fourth quarter of 2011, the Company drilled 42 gross (33.0 net) oil wells, with a 100 percent success rate.  Activity in the fourth quarter included the drilling of 11 gross (9.8 net) Spearfish horizontal wells in the Company's Pierson and Bottineau County areas.Legacy was forward-thinking and anticipated a potential "services crunch" in the third and fourth quarter of 2011, due to most of industry trying to catch up on capital activities after the flooding and weather conditions in mid-2011.  The Company's fracture services arrangement and proactive management of its drilling fleet enabled Legacy to not only meet but exceed its originally forecast exit rate guidance.  This accomplishment is a testament to the Company's ability to manage its base corporate declines as well as the performance of its organic capital program.  This successful operational momentum has continued into the first quarter 2012, with Legacy having drilled 47 gross (34.8 net) wells to-date, with a 100 percent success rate.Legacy's exposure to the Spearfish light oil resource play increased dramatically in 2011, with the acquisition of the Pierson asset in Manitoba.  At the end of 2011, Legacy had 75,160 net undeveloped acres in both Pierson and Bottineau County, North Dakota.  In a year challenged by weather-caused access issues, the Company was able to drill 20 (18.6 net) wells in the play.  Operational momentum has progressed in 2012, with 12 (10.3 net) wells already drilled to date.Legacy continues to evolve the completion design at Pierson and is demonstrating much better performance than the previous operator, a phenomenon that has been witnessed in a number of other Legacy acquired assets.  In Pierson, Legacy-drilled wells have produced 85 percent more oil in the first five months of production compared to the previous operator's wells in the area.  The Company believes this performance will lead to superior long term performance and ultimately higher per well reserve bookings.  Success also continues in Bottineau County, with wells meeting or exceeding internal expectations.  Bottineau County is an extension of the Spearfish play from Canada into North Dakota, and represents a significant unbooked drilling inventory.In the Spearfish, Legacy has identified in excess of 440 net undeveloped locations (88 percent unbooked), at a spacing of eight wells per section.  This risked inventory only includes a portion of the Bottineau County lands and incorporates the well results, geological control and 3D seismic at Pierson.  The Company's spacing assumption of eight wells per section could prove to be conservative as other operators are drilling the Spearfish at 24 wells per section.  Legacy has been developing the play with one mile long horizontal wells while other operators have been drilling one-half mile horizontal wells.  Based on similar spacing, Legacy's number of undeveloped locations would increase by 50 percent.The Company has also been at the forefront in identifying the waterflood potential in the Spearfish.  Based on analogy to the South Pierson Unit, which has been under waterflood since 1993, Legacy anticipates waterflood to result in a 14 percent recovery factor of the original oil in-place.At Turner Valley, the Company drilled 4 (3.2 net) successful horizontal Rundle oil wells in 2011 (2 gross (1.7 net) in the fourth quarter of 2011) and completed one of these wells with a multistage acid fracture stimulation before year-end.  This first well came on production in November 2011 with an initial production of 225 Boe per day and has stabilized at a rate of approximately 170 Boe per day.  The three other horizontal wells came on production at various times in the first quarter of 2012 and are exhibiting encouraging rates that are improving over time as water cuts continue to decrease.  The recompletion of an existing Rundle horizontal well (7 year old well) in February 2011 with a multistage acid fracture stimulation increased production from 25 Boe per day to 110 Boe per day and the well currently is producing at 100 Boe per day.  Also at Turner Valley, Legacy had additional success with another test of its jet pump skid.  The subject well was producing at 18 Boe per day prior to installing the jet pump, and the rate has since increased to 45 Boe per day.  The Company will provide an operational update on these wells in the coming months.At Taylorton, modification of the fracture stimulation treatments has led to continual improvements in production rates, with a number of wells achieving the highest initial production rates to-date.  Legacy drilled 9 wells that had 30 day initial production rates in excess of 260 Boe per day per well.  These wells have continued to perform, with 90 day average production rates of 260 Boe per day per well and six month production rates averaging 190 Boe per day per well.  The Company also began injection in April 2011 in a pilot waterflood and has plans to expand this project in 2012.  This pilot waterflood could lead to incremental reserve bookings and lower production decline rates and could be expanded depending upon results.At Star Valley, Legacy has applied its leading fracture stimulation design developed in Heward to this area with good success.  As a result, the Company believes the Bakken play boundaries have expanded and has increased its drilling location inventory to more than 50 net wells in Star Valley.  At Heward/Stoughton, the Company initiated a pilot waterflood at Heward in November 2011, which could lead to incremental reserve bookings and lower production decline rates and could be expanded depending upon results.The Torquay (Three Forks) coreflooding study at Frys/Antler was completed in 2011 and Legacy combined the study with a comprehensive geological and geophysical review of the area.  Reservoir characteristics, including net pay, porosity and permeability appear similar to the highly successful waterflood in the Sinclair Three Forks 'B' pool located in Manitoba, directly offsetting the Company's lands.  This waterflood project has been underway since mid-2006 and has now been expanded to more than 24 sections and is expected to recover up to 30 percent of the Petroleum Initially in Place ("PIIP"), a more than five‐fold increase in recovery factor over primary production.  The Legacy study indicates similar potential waterflood recoveries of approximately 30 percent of the PIIP.  Legacy has exposure to more than 90 MMSTB of net PIIP in the Torquay at Frys/Antler area (as independently mapped by GLJ Petroleum Consultants Ltd., August 1, 2009).  Pilot waterflood implementation on Legacy operated lands is expected later in 2012. No reserves are assigned to waterflood in this area in the December 31, 2011 reserves report.At Maxhamish, Legacy constructed an all-season road and an additional well pad to permit year-round drilling activity.  The Company drilled and fracture stimulated two additional Chinkeh horizontal wells.  Liner difficulties in the first well resulted in only half the wellbore being effectively stimulated.  However, initial production rates have been encouraging.  The second well came on production in January 2012 and continues to recover load fluid and formation oil, but is rate constrained due to surface production equipment limitations.  Legacy continues to be encouraged with the play, as the two horizontal wells drilled in 2010 have been producing at a stabilized rate of approximately 55 Boe per day per well after almost two years of production.Legacy, as operator, drilled and completed two strat to horizontal wells in the Big Valley (Three Forks) formation in the southern Alberta Bakken light oil play.  Results have been encouraging but in line with an exploratory, early stage play.  Both strat wells encountered multiple oil saturated horizons and the horizontal laterals were drilled into a light oil bearing, overpressured reservoir.  Technical work continues on analyzing the geological and reservoir model based on the data gathered from these two wells and will be integrated with recent successes other operators have announced in immediate proximity to Legacy's land.  Together, all the information will be used to determine the pace of development in 2012.RESERVESIn accordance with National Instrument 51-101 - Standards of Disclosure for Oil and Gas Activities ("NI 51-101"), Sproule Associates Ltd. ("Sproule") evaluated, as at December 31, 2011, materially all of Legacy's oil, natural gas liquids and natural gas reserves. Legacy's annual information form for the year ended December 31, 2011 (the "AIF") contains Legacy's reserves data and other oil and natural gas information for the period ended December 31, 2011 as mandated by NI 51-101. A copy of the AIF can be obtained under Legacy's profile at www.sedar.com or at www.legacyoilandgas.com. The summary information provided below should be read in conjunction with the detailed information in the AIF.As of December 31, 2011, Legacy's total gross proved plus probable reserves base was 88.0 MMBoe, an increase of 13% year over year.  Total proved plus probable reserves additions [before divestitures] were 14.7 MMBoe.  These additions represent 318 percent of the 4.6 MMBoe produced during 2011. Light and medium oil and NGL's accounted for 84 percent of the proved plus probable reserves base.Legacy's gross total proved reserves base was 52.4 MMBoe.  Total proved reserves represent 60 percent of the total proved plus probable reserves.  Proved producing reserves represent 66 percent of the total proved reserves base.  Total proved reserves additions [before divestitures] were 8.8 MMBoe.  These additions represent 191 percent of the 4.6 MMBoe produced during 2011.  Light and medium oil and NGL's accounted for 81 percent of the total proved reserves base.The following table is a summary, as at December 31, 2011, of Legacy's petroleum and natural gas reserves as evaluated by Sproule.  It is important to note that the recovery and reserves estimates provided herein are estimates only. Actual reserves may be greater or less then the estimates provided herein. Reserves information may not add due to rounding.Gross Company Reserves Summary (1) Using Sproule December 31, 2011 Forecast Prices and CostsAs at December 31, 2011   Light and  Total Oil Medium OilNatural GasNGL'sEquivalent (MBbl)(MMcf)(MBbl)(MBoe)Proved Producing23,314.641,536.94,596.934,834.3Proved Developed Non-Producing539.675.921.8574.0Proved Undeveloped12,106.218,838.31,749.916,995.8Total Proved35,960.460,451.36,368.652,404.1Total Proved plus Probable64,428.585,528.29,309.287,992.4(1) Gross Company Reserves means the Company's working interest reserves before calculations of royalties and before consideration of the Company's royalty interest..CAPITAL EXPENDITURES AND FINDING, DEVELOPMENT AND ACQUISITION COSTSLegacy incurred capital expenditures of $549.2 million in 2011, of which $215.3 million was spent on strategic corporate and property acquisitions and $334.0 million on organic opportunities.The Company's total proved plus probable F&D costs for 2011 were $25.44 per Boe (excluding FDC) which generated a 2.0 times recycle ratio, based on the fourth quarter 2011 average operating netback. 2011 Capital Expenditures                                                 Total Proved plus Probable (2)Total Proved (2)Capital costs ($ thousands)    Exploration & development drilling & associated costs318,352318,352  Land & seismic15,60115,601  Net acquisitions215,289215,289  Change in FDC (1) 147,28279,0172011 Reserve Additions (MBoe) (3)  Exploration & development13,1257,634Net acquisitions1,5501,184   Finding & Development Costs ($ per Boe) (4)  3-year weighted average cost, excluding change in FDC25.2542.433-year weighted average cost, including change in FDC35.7251.602011 excluding FDC25.4443.752011 including FDC36.6654.102010 excluding FDC25.4038.612010 including FDC35.6047.76   Finding, Development & Acquisition Costs ($ per Boe) (5)  3-year weighted average cost, excluding change in FDC22.0835.053-year weighted average cost, including change in FDC28.6840.462011 excluding FDC37.4362.292011 including FDC47.4671.252010 excluding FDC14.5422.722010 including FDC20.0931.39(1) The aggregate of the exploration and development costs incurred in the most recent financial period and the change during that period in estimated future development costs generally will not reflect total finding and development costs related to reserve additions for that period(2) Based on gross reserves meaning the total company interest (operated and non-operated) share before deduction of royalties payable to others(3) Boe conversion ratio for natural gas of 1 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(4) Includes revisions.

Continuous refinement of mapping, completion programs and production strategies has provided a number of positive results:Spearfish production has outperformed the Sproule proved plus probable type curveMore than 385 net locations are unbooked in the Spearfish  which could grow to nearly 600 net locations with inclusion of all Spearfish lands held in North DakotaThe infill horizontal multi-stage fracture stimulation program in Turner Valley has generated positive early resultsTaylorton Bakken continues to deliver strong results with nine wells averaging more than 260 Boe per day per well over the first 30 days of production and averaging 260 Boe per day per well over the first 90 days of productionSuccess in conventional Mississippian at Alameda, Edenvale, Manor and SteelmanIn 2012, we are demonstrating  better capital efficiencies compared to 2011 which will further improve  economics and  provide risk protection to the capital program:Weather has been more typical compared to 2011Contracted fit for purpose horizontal drilling rigs and equipment  (top drives, larger pumps)Moved to more manufacturing-type development in some of our emerging plays such as the SpearfishCosts have stabilized for key servicesLegacy's light oil assets and strong financial position not only provide downside mitigation in periods of lower commodity prices or volatility, but also provide upside torque to the continued operational success achieved in the past nine months due to:Production that is 85 percent weighted to light oil and NGL'sCurrent operating netbacks greater than $52.00 per BoeOperating costs have decresed  and the expectation of this trend is to continue throughout 2012Surplus capacity on banking facilityLegacy embarks on 2012 positioned with high quality light oil assets, a strong balance sheet, significant opportunity inventory and dedicated people for continued aggressive and disciplined growth.ANNUAL GENERAL MEETINGLegacy's Annual General Meeting, is scheduled for 3:00 pm on May 29, 2012 at The Petroleum Club, McMurray Room, located at 319 - 5th Avenue SW, Calgary, AB.To view Legacy's audited financial statements, the related MD&A and the AIF for the years ended December 31, 2011, December 31, 2010 and December 31, 2009 please visit our web site at www.legacyoilandgas.com or www.sedar.com.

Since forward-looking statements address future events and conditions, by their very nature they involve inherent risks and uncertainties. Actual results could differ materially from those currently anticipated due to a number of factors and risks. These include, but are not limited to, risks associated with the oil and gas industry in general (e.g., operational risks in development, exploration and production; the uncertainty of reserve estimates; the uncertainty of estimates and projections relating to production, costs and expenses, and health, safety and environmental risks), constraint in the availability of services, commodity price and exchange rate fluctuations, adverse weather conditions and uncertainties resulting from potential delays or changes in plans with respect to exploration or development projects, waterflood projects or capital expenditures.
