TORONTO, Dec. 17, 2012 /CNW/ - Plantro Ltd. ("Plantro") and its sole shareholder, Matthew Proud ("Proud") together with Seastone Investments Limited ("Seastone"), the investment company of Proud's brother, Tyler Proud, are pleased to announce their take-over bid (the "Offer") for all of the issued and outstanding common shares of OneMove Technologies Inc. (TSX-V: OM) ("OneMove" or the "Company") at a price of Cdn.$0.425 per share. According to publicly available information, OneMove has 12,503,518 issued and outstanding common shares. The Offer will represent a premium of approximately 32% to the volume weighted average trading price of the common shares on the TSX-V for the 50 day period ended December 14, 2012.
Seastone, Plantro and Proud (together, the "Offeror") will file a joint amended early warning report indicating that, inter alia, they may be considered to be 'acting jointly and in concert' in respect of OneMove's securities, as such phrase is defined in section 91 of the Securities Act (Ontario). Collectively the Offeror owns or has control or direction over an aggregate of 2,985,500 common shares representing approximately 23.9% of the Company's issued and outstanding shares and warrants to acquire up to an additional 2,800,000 common shares representing approximately an additional 18.3% of the Company's common shares.
Assuming the exercise of the warrants held by the Offeror, the Offeror would own or have control or direction over an aggregate of 5,785,500 common shares representing approximately 37.8% of the Company's common shares.
There is currently no agreement, commitment or understanding between the Offeror and 2352512 Ontario Inc., a corporation owned by Proud's father, regarding their respective ownership of securities of the Company or the Offer. 2352512 Ontario Inc. currently owns 800,000 common shares representing approximately 6.4% of the Company's common shares and warrants to acquire up to an additional 800,000 common shares representing approximately an additional 6.0% of the Company's common shares, which taken together with securities held by the Offeror, represent approximately 45.9% of the Company's outstanding common shares (assuming exercise of warrants).
In addition, holders of an aggregate of approximately 2,000,000 (or 16%) of the Company's common shares not already owned by the Offeror have indicated their support for the Offer by entering into lock-up agreements.
By way of letter dated December 14, 2012, Plantro invited the Company to negotiate a support agreement in respect of the Offer which the Company declined.
The Offer will be made through a wholly owned subsidiary of Plantro and will be conditional on, among other things, the deposit of that number of common shares which, when taken together with the shares already owned by the Offeror, constitutes at least 66 2/3% of the shares. The Offeror has sufficient cash resources on hand that will be relied upon to take up and pay for common shares deposited and not withdrawn under the Offer.
The purpose of the Offer is to acquire all of the common shares not already owned by the Offeror. As the Offer is an "insider bid" as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 ("61-101"), the Offeror has asked the Company to prepare a valuation pursuant to 61-101. The Offeror intends to commence the Offer as soon as practicable following receipt of the valuation from the Company, at which time the Offer documents will be filed with applicable securities regulatory authorities and copies will be delivered to OneMove. The Offeror intends to request a list of securityholders from the Company and, when received, will send the Offer documents to OneMove's securityholders. Copies of the Offer documents will also be available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

There are 66 million network cameras capturing terabytes of data. How did factories in Japan improve physical security at the facilities and improve employee productivity? Edge Computing reduces possible kilobytes of data collected per second to only a few kilobytes of data transmitted to the public cloud every day. Data is aggregated and analyzed close to sensors so only intelligent results need to be transmitted to the cloud. Non-essential data is recycled to optimize storage.

Culture is the most important ingredient of DevOps. The challenge for most organizations is defining and communicating a vision of beneficial DevOps culture for their organizations, and then facilitating the changes needed to achieve that. Often this comes down to an ability to provide true leadership. As a CIO, are your direct reports IT managers or are they IT leaders? The hard truth is that many IT managers have risen through the ranks based on their technical skills, not their leadership abi...

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. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

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. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress.

Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications. The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits. Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
