Concerned Shareholder of Auro Resources Corp. Receives Support From ISS Proxy Advisory Services

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/23/12 -- Shareholders of Auro Resources Corp. (the "Company"), please take notice that:

ISS Proxy Advisory Services, a leading independent international corporate governance analysis and proxy advisory firm, has issued a report recommending that its clients vote the GREEN proxy for the Dissident Nominees for the board of directors of the Company at the annual general and special meeting of shareholders of the Company to be held on January 3, 2013 (the AGM). The ISS report is used by institutional investors in Canada and the U.S. to assist them in making their proxy voting decisions.

In making its recommendation, ISS considered whether David Elliott, the Concerned Shareholder, made a compelling case that the change in management is warranted. ISS reviewed the information provided in the information circular (the Dissidents Information Circular) filed by the Concerned Shareholder on December 20, 2012. Copies of the Dissidents Information Circular have been mailed to shareholders and are available online at www.sedar.com under the Company's profile, or by contacting Laurel Hill Advisory Group.

In recommending that its clients vote FOR the Dissident Nominees on the GREEN proxy, ISS cited, among other things, the following reasons for their recommendation:


--  The Company's Total Shareholder Return significantly underperformed the
    TSX Venture Composite Index over the previous 1, 3 and 5-year periods,
    falling by 75%, 85.3% and 93.8%, respectively;

--  The current board clearly lacks independent oversight, which raises
    concerns about self-dealing of current directors as evidenced by
    dissident allegations against current management;

--  The proposed new board comprising the Dissident Nominees will be wholly
    independent;

--  Only one management nominee appears to have relevant experience in the
    mining sector;

--  Three of the Dissident Nominees appear to have sophisticated experiences
    in mining, which will be expected to add competent technical expertise
    to the board, and which will be beneficial in helping build a new
    strategy to turn the Company around; and 

--  Dissident Director Cyrus Driver is a Chartered Accountant who is
    expected to bring more competent oversight to the Company's audit
    committee.

The Concerned Shareholder appreciates the recommendation of ISS and encourages the shareholders of Auro Resources to vote their GREEN proxy prior to December 28, 2012 at 5:00pm Pacific Time. You may support the Concerned Shareholder in this way even if you have already completed and signed a white proxy distributed to you by management of the Company. YOU MAY CHANGE YOUR VOTE BY SUBMITTING A GREEN PROXY WITH A LATER DATE. A LATER DATED GREEN PROXY AUTOMATICALLY REVOKES ANY EARLIER PROXY. If you have any questions or need assistance in voting your shares please contact the Concerned Shareholder's proxy solicitation agent, Laurel Hill Advisory Group 1-877-452-7184, collect 416 304-0211 email: [email protected]

David Elliott, Concerned Shareholder

In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent. Containers without persistence miss out on many benefits, and in many cases simply pass the responsibility of persistence onto other infrastructure, adding additional complexity.

Unsecured IoT devices were used to launch crippling DDOS attacks in October 2016, targeting services such as Twitter, Spotify, and GitHub. Subsequent testimony to Congress about potential attacks on office buildings, schools, and hospitals raised the possibility for the IoT to harm and even kill people. What should be done? Does the government need to intervene? This panel at @ThingExpo New York brings together leading IoT and security experts to discuss this very serious topic.

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busine...
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete.
