United Silver Corp. Announces the Court-Appointment of a Receiver

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/09/14 -- United Silver Corp. (TSX: USC)(OTCQX: USCZF)(FRANKFURT: UM8) (the "Company" or "USC") announces that pursuant to an order of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice (Commercial List) dated January 9, 2014, Duff & Phelps Canada Restructuring Inc. was appointed as receiver and manager ("Receiver") of the property, assets and undertaking of USC and the Receiver has been advised that the directors of USC have resigned. The Receiver was appointed pursuant to an application brought by USC's secured creditor, HUSC, LLC ("HUSC").

The stability and certainty of a Court-supervised receivership is expected to assist to protect the business and preserve the value of the assets of USC, including the Crescent Mine, in which USC has an indirect 80% ownership interest. The Court-supervised receivership is also expected to provide a mechanism to address the Company's short term liquidity requirements. HUSC has indicated that it intends to foreclose on the assets of USC's operating subsidiaries, which are not subject to the receivership proceedings, in accordance with security agreements granted previously by the subsidiaries to HUSC in 2012.

This talk centers around how to automate best practices in a multi-/hybrid-cloud world based on our work with customers like GE, Discovery Communications and Fannie Mae. Today’s enterprises are reaping the benefits of cloud computing, but also discovering many risks and challenges.

In his Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, will explore t...
