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.

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...
The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

Identity is in everything and customers are looking to their providers to ensure the security of their identities, transactions and data. With the increased reliance on cloud-based services, service providers must build security and trust into their offerings, adding value to customers and improving the user experience. Making identity, security and privacy easy for customers provides a unique advantage over the competition.
There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate a...

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
So, you bought into the current machine learning craze and went on to collect millions/billions of records from this promising new data source. Now, what do you do with them? Too often, the abundance of data quickly turns into an abundance of problems. How do you extract that "magic essence" from your data without falling into the common pitfalls? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Natalia Ponomareva, Software Engineer at Google, provided tips on how to be successful in large scale machine learning...
If you had a chance to enter on the ground level of the largest e-commerce market in the world – would you? China is the world’s most populated country with the second largest economy and the world’s fastest growing market. It is estimated that by 2018 the Chinese market will be reaching over $30 billion in gaming revenue alone. Admittedly for a foreign company, doing business in China can be challenging. Often changing laws, administrative regulations and the often inscrutable Chinese Interne...
In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.
Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...
