PGNX Announces Shareholder Approval and Declares $0.45 Per Share Special Distribution by Way of Return of Capital

KELOWNA, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/06/12 -- PGNX Capital Corp. (NEX BOARD:PGN.H) ("PGNX") (formerly, Paragon Pharmacies Limited, "PGNX" or the "Corporation", TSXV: PGN.V) is pleased to announce that, further to the announcement of October 12, 2012, the shareholders of PGNX have unanimously approved a special resolution to reduce PGNX's stated capital in connection with the proposed $0.45 per share cash distribution by way of a return of capital. This approval was obtained at a Special Meeting of Shareholders held November 6, 2012 in Winnipeg.

The record date for the special distribution has been set at November 9, 2012 (the "Record Date") and the payment of the special distribution is expected to occur on November 15, 2012. This special distribution is derived from proceeds realized from the sale by PGNX of substantially all of its assets on August 1, 2012.

As this distribution of $0.45 per share will exceed 25% of the market value of PGNX's listed securities, the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV") has determined to implement due bill trading in respect of the special distribution. The due bill trading will commence on November 7, 2012, being two days prior to the Record Date. The "ex-distribution" date (the date on which purchases of PGNX Common Shares will no longer have an attaching right to the distribution) will be November 16, 2012, the first trading day following the distribution payment date. The due bill redemption date will be November 20, 2012.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course).

And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
