The Strathroy Acquisition

Tenants include BDO Financial Services LLP, Staples Canada Inc., Dollar Tree Canada and Dominos Pizza. In addition to strong cash flow from the property, as-yet untenanted new construction of 4,000 sq.ft. provides a low-risk opportunity to increase Net Operating Income.
Tempus is executing its business strategy, and is now in negotiations to acquire various other properties outside of the Greater Toronto Area.
Tempus also continues with its normal course due diligence review of the privately-held assets identified in its April 23, 2013 press release, for which the purchase price is $100,003,136.
Letter of Intent with Panda
Tempus also is continuing with its previously announced Letter of Intent dated December 5, 2013 with Panda Capital Inc. ("Panda") whereby Panda will acquire all of Tempus' common shares in exchange for Panda common shares (the "Proposed Transaction"). Panda is a Capital Pool Company whose shares are currently listed on the NEX division of the TSXV. The Proposed Transaction is intended to be Panda's Qualifying Transaction pursuant to TSXV policies and is subject to regulatory approval.

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 However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die.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.
