OPERATING HIGHLIGHTS

During the third quarter, the Corporation continued to take steps to solidify the foundation of its three newly formed operating platforms - self storage facilities, private equity funds and natural gas assets. Those steps included enhancing the management teams, implementing operational, accounting and reporting systems and developing a solid pipeline of new opportunities.

Real Storage Private Trust (44.78% owned) continued to show operational improvements across its portfolio of 17 self-storage facilities containing 648,978 square feet of rentable area and one development site. The five properties located in western Canada, which were acquired in February, 2011, performed exceptionally well and are expected to reach stabilized occupancy levels in 2012. The majority of the western facilities are newly constructed and in the initial lease-up stage. Overall, occupancy across the portfolio averaged 81% for the three months ended September 30, 2012 as compared to 75% for the same period in 2011. Operating margins for the three months ended September 30, 2012 increased to 57%, up from 54% achieved for the comparable period in 2011.

On the private equity front, Network Capital Management Inc. (50% owned) successfully closed its $22.3 million 2012 fund. Network's committed funds under management now total $50 million and the majority of Network's available capital has been successfully deployed in a strong mix of junior oil and gas and service companies. Wilmington committed $8 million of capital to the 2012 fund.

The natural gas assets owned through the Shackleton Partnership (59% owned) have proven to be of high quality and present good opportunities for growth and future development once we reach a more favorable natural gas pricing environment. The weighted average price realized during the quarter was $2.28 per mcf and operating netbacks averaged $0.81 per mcf. Natural gas production volumes amounted to 4,911 mcf per day (818 boepd) for the third quarter. Estimated proved plus probable reserves attributable to the Shackleton assets as evaluated by GLJ Petroleum Consultants Ltd. with an effective date of December 31, 2011 were 24,392 MMcf. The outlook for natural gas pricing has improved significantly and a better pricing environment will be beneficial to the future operating performance of the Shackleton assets. Of its 2013 production, approximately 25% has been hedged at $3.65 per mcf.

OUTLOOK

The Corporation believes that the foundation for achieving future growth through its three operating platforms - the Real Storage Private Trust, Network Capital Management Inc. and the Shackleton Partnership - are now firmly in place. In the years ahead, the Corporation expects to add scale to these operating platforms, improve valuations and earn attractive cash flow and total returns for shareholders.

Boe Conversion: Certain natural gas volumes have been converted to barrels of oil equivalent ("boe") whereby 6,000 cubic feet (mcf) of natural gas is equal to 1 barrel (bbl) of oil. This conversion ratio (6:1) is based on an energy equivalency conversion applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Arvind Radhakrishnen discussed how IoT offers new business models in banking and financial services organizations with the capability to revolutionize products, payments, channels, business processes and asset management built on strong architectural foundation. The following topics were covered: How IoT stands to impact various business parameters including customer experience, cost and risk management within BFS organizations.
Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments. The networking architecture of the solution isolates the network traffic into different network planes (e.g., management, control, and media). This naturally makes support for multiple interfaces in container orchestration engines an indispensable requirement.
"I will be talking about ChatOps and ChatOps as a way to solve some problems in the DevOps space," explained Himanshu Chhetri, CTO of Addteq, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Businesses and business units of all sizes can benefit from cloud computing, but many don't want the cost, performance and security concerns of public cloud nor the complexity of building their own private clouds. Today, some cloud vendors are using artificial intelligence (AI) to simplify cloud deployment and management. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Ajay Gulati, Co-founder and CEO of ZeroStack, discussed how AI can simplify cloud operations. He covered the following topics: why cloud mana...
Recently, REAN Cloud built a digital concierge for a North Carolina hospital that had observed that most patient call button questions were repetitive. In addition, the paper-based process used to measure patient health metrics was laborious, not in real-time and sometimes error-prone. In their session at 21st Cloud Expo, Sean Finnerty, Executive Director, Practice Lead, Health Care & Life Science at REAN Cloud, and Dr. S.P.T. Krishnan, Principal Architect at REAN Cloud, discussed how they built...
In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Michael Burley, a Senior Business Development Executive in IT Services at NetApp, described how NetApp designed a three-year program of work to migrate 25PB of a major telco's enterprise data to a new STaaS platform, and then secured a long-term contract to manage and operate the platform. This significant program blended the best of NetApp’s solutions and services capabilities to enable this telco’s successful adoption of private cloud storage and launching o...
Enterprises are universally struggling to understand where the new tools and methodologies of DevOps fit into their organizations, and are universally making the same mistakes. These mistakes are not unavoidable, and in fact, avoiding them gifts an organization with sustained competitive advantage, just like it did for Japanese Manufacturing Post WWII.

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
With tough new regulations coming to Europe on data privacy in May 2018, Calligo will explain why in reality the effect is global and transforms how you consider critical data. EU GDPR fundamentally rewrites the rules for cloud, Big Data and IoT. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Adam Ryan, Vice President and General Manager EMEA at Calligo, examined the regulations and provided insight on how it affects technology, challenges the established rules and will usher in new levels of diligence arou...
For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.
