MONTREAL, Jan. 10, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Maudore Minerals Ltd. (MAO: TSX-Venture; MAOMF: US OTC; M6L: Frankfurt Exchange) announces that it will no longer proceed with the rights offering that it initiated on December 20, 2013 and that was scheduled to expire at 5:00 p.m. (Montreal time) on January 10, 2014 (the "Rights Offering").
On January 8, 2014, Maudore finalized its revised 2014 mining operations plan and financial forecast (the "2014 Budget") which showed materially lower free cash flow for 2014 than originally anticipated primarily due to: (i) lower gold price assumptions, (ii) increased working capital requirements related to the restart of the Sleeping Giant mine and (iii) the shift of certain production from 2014 to 2015. The majority of the reduced cash flow for 2014 represents production timing issues and not a lower life-of-mine production forecast. As a result of the reprofiling of cash flows in the 2014 Budget, the ability of the Company to meet its contractual repayment obligations agreed to under the consensual restructuring proposal entered into with its major creditors (the "Consensual Restructuring") has become challenging.
In light of the foregoing, Maudore has entered into discussions with Cyrus Capital Partners ("Cyrus"), in its capacity as a manager to FBC Holdings S.à r.l ("FBC"), regarding certain changes to the covenants and maturity of the proposed $6,000,000 liquidity facility that FBC was to provide Maudore as part of the Consensual Restructuring. Cyrus has advised Maudore that it will require more time to diligence the 2014 Budget to determine whether to amend the previous terms of its financial support of Maudore in order to accommodate the cash flow profile of the 2014 Budget. Cyrus may also require that the Company agree to certain other terms to protect its existing investment as part of its continued forbearance and support of the Company. The Company has not yet had discussions with its other secured and unsecured creditors about the 2014 Budget and its implications for the previously agreed terms of the Consensual Restructuring.
As a result of the required changes to the Consensual Restructuring and the uncertainties surrounding the ability to secure creditor approval of any changes, the Company has decided that it will no longer proceed with the Rights Offering and all funds held by the Transfer Agent will be returned to subscribers.
Maudore intends to continue assessing its strategic alternatives given its current financial situation. Further announcements will be made by the Company in due course.

If there is anything we have learned by now, is that every business paves their own unique path for releasing software- every pipeline, implementation and practices are a bit different, and DevOps comes in all shapes and sizes. Software delivery practices are often comprised of set of several complementing (or even competing) methodologies – such as leveraging Agile, DevOps and even a mix of ITIL, to create the combination that’s most suitable for your organization and that maximize your busines...

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...

See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, in product and marketing at Tintri, will discu...

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...

There is an ever-growing explosion of new devices that are connected to the Internet using “cloud” solutions. This rapid growth is creating a massive new demand for efficient access to data. And it’s not just about connecting to that data anymore. This new demand is bringing new issues and challenges and it is important for companies to scale for the coming growth. And with that scaling comes the need for greater security, gathering and data analysis, storage, connectivity and, of course, the...
