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.

My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake.

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications? To answer this, first we have to look and explore the security models of the technologies that IoT is founded upon. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nevi Kaja, a Research Engineer at Ford Motor Company, will discuss some of the security challenges of the IoT infrastructure and relate how these aspects impact Smart Living.

Apache Hadoop is emerging as a distributed platform for handling large and fast incoming streams of data. Predictive maintenance, supply chain optimization, and Internet-of-Things analysis are examples where Hadoop provides the scalable storage, processing, and analytics platform to gain meaningful insights from granular data that is typically only valuable from a large-scale, aggregate view. One architecture useful for capturing and analyzing streaming data is the Lambda Architecture, represent...
As organizations realize the scope of the Internet of Things, gaining key insights from Big Data, through the use of advanced analytics, becomes crucial.

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing. While we’ve seen a lot of focus on the “A” and even on the “M”, there are very few examples of why the “C" is equally important in the DevOps equation. In her session at @DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, of F5 Networks, explored HTTP/1 and HTTP/2 along with Microservices to illustrate why a collaborative culture between Dev, Ops, and the Network is critical to ensuring success.
