In connection with the Listing, the Company will conduct a fully marketed offering of units (the "Units") in Israel, for aggregate gross proceeds of a maximum of up to $10,320,000 (the "Offering").

The final offering pricing and warrant exercise prices will be determined based on a Dutch auction process (the "Auction"), to be conducted in accordance with Israeli securities law. The minimum price per Common Share comprising the Unit set for the opening of the Auction is 0.50 New Israeli Shekels ("NIS") (CAD$0.129). Each Series 1 Warrant will be exercisable to acquire one common share of the Company (a "Warrant Share") at a minimum price of NIS0.50 (CAD$0.129) for a period of 18 months after the closing of the Offering. Each Series 2 Warrant will be exercisable to acquire one Warrant Share at a minimum price of NIS0.55 (CAD$0.14), for a period of 36 months after the closing of the Offering. No binding agreements of purchase and sale will be entered into until a final short form prospectus is filed in Canada disclosing the final pricing and deal size, and a receipt is issued for the final short form prospectus by the Ontario Securities Commission.

The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering to complete the drilling of the first well on the Gabriella license, and to continue the exploration and development activities on the Yitzhak and Samuel offshore licenses.

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.

The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...

Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning.

HyperConvergence came to market with the objective of being simple, flexible and to help drive down operating expenses. It reduced the footprint by bundling the compute/storage/network into one box.

If you want to scale in a certain way, let's say you identified a need for more storage and want to add a device that is not sold by the HyperConverged vendor, forget about it...
