HOUSTON, Nov. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Salient Partners L.P. (Salient), a $17.4 billion asset management firm, has launched the Salient MLP & Energy Infrastructure Fund II (Class A Ticker: SMAPX, Class C Ticker: SMFPX, Class I Ticker: SMLPX). This is the firm's first mutual fund focused on master limited partnerships (MLPs) and energy infrastructure companies, giving investors the potential to capitalize on the investment opportunities available in this industry.
The Salient MLP & Energy Infrastructure Fund II (the "Fund") seeks to provide a high level of total return and emphasizes making quarterly cash distributions to shareholders. Its strategy entails investing at least 80 percent of its net assets in equity securities of MLPs and energy infrastructure companies of all market capitalizations. The Fund may, for example, invest in MLP Affiliates, C-Corps, Shipping LPs and Royalty Trusts, broadening the traditional range of energy infrastructure investment opportunities.
The Fund announced its first quarterly distribution of $0.125 per share for the period of September 19, 2012 to November 30, 2012.
The distribution for the quarter ended November 30, 2012 will be payable on December 5, 2012 to common stockholders of record on November 21, 2012. It is anticipated that a significant portion of this distribution will be treated as a return of capital for tax purposes. The final determination of such amount will be made in early 2013 when the Company can determine its earnings and profits for the 2012 fiscal year. The final tax status of the distribution may differ substantially from its preliminary information.
The Fund's investments are concentrated in the energy infrastructure industry with an emphasis on securities issued by MLPs, which may increase price fluctuation. The value of commodity-linked investments such as the MLPs and Energy Infrastructure Companies (including Midstream MLPs and Energy Infrastructure Companies) in which the Fund invests are subject to risks specific to the industry they serve, such as fluctuations in commodity prices, reduced volumes of available natural gas or other energy commodities, slowdowns in new construction and acquisitions, a sustained reduced demand for crude oil, natural gas and refined petroleum products, depletion of the natural gas reserves or other commodities, changes in the macroeconomic or regulatory environment (including the risk that an MLP could lose its tax status as a partnership), environmental hazards, rising interest rates and threats of attack by terrorists on energy assets, each of which could affect the Fund's profitability.
In addition, investing in MLPs involves additional risks as compared to the risks of investing in common stock, including risks related to cash flow, dilution and voting rights. Such companies may trade less frequently than larger companies due to their smaller capitalizations which may result in erratic price movement or difficulty in buying or selling.
Additional management fees and other expenses are associated with investing in MLP funds. The Fund is subject to certain MLP tax risks and risks associated with accounting for its deferred tax liability which could materially reduce the net asset value. An investment in the Fund does not offer the tax benefits of a direct investment in an MLP.
No fund is a complete investment program and you may lose money investing in a fund. The Fund may engage in other investment practices that may involve additional risks and you should review the Fund's prospectus for a complete description.
You should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of the Fund carefully before investing. The prospectus contains this and other information about the Fund and is available, along with information on other Salient funds, by calling 866-667-9228 or from your financial professional. The prospectus should be read carefully before investing.

Early adopters of IoT viewed it mainly as a different term for machine-to-machine connectivity or M2M. This is understandable since a prerequisite for any IoT solution is the ability to collect and aggregate device data, which is most often presented in a dashboard. The problem is that viewing data in a dashboard requires a human to interpret the results and take manual action, which doesn’t scale to the needs of IoT.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee...
