Aben Resources Announces Shares-for-Debt Settlement, Share Consolidation and Amendment to Articles

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/14/14 -- Aben Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE: ABN)(FRANKFURT: E2L)(PINKSHEETS: ABNAF) ("Aben" or the "Company") announces the following transactions:

Shares for Debt

The Company has entered into a shares-for-debt agreement with TerraLogic Exploration Inc. ("TerraLogic") (the "Agreement") to satisfy the remaining amount owing under a geological consultant services agreement between Aben and TerraLogic dated March 19, 2012 (the "Consultant Agreement"). Aben will pay CAD$50,000 in cash and issue 6,728,000 common shares in the capital of the Company, as constituted prior to the share consolidation referred to hereafter, to TerraLogic at a deemed price of $0.05 per share to satisfy the debt of CAD$386,400 owing under the Consultant Agreement. The Agreement is subject to approval from the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") and the common shares will be subject to a four (4) month hold period upon issuance.

Share Consolidation

The Company has convened an Annual and Special General Meeting to be held February 20, 2014 (the "Shareholders' Meeting"). At the Shareholders' Meeting, the shareholders will be asked to approve a consolidation of the Company's share capital on the basis of one post-consolidation share for each 10 pre-consolidation shares. The issued capital of the Company is currently 125,631,846 common shares, which will become 12,563,185 common shares, before adjustments for fractions and subject to the issuance of additional shares in the intervening period, after the consolidation. The purpose of the consolidation is to make the Company's securities more attractive to potential investors, and others who may have an interest in receiving shares in other transactions, by increasing the market price for the Company's post-consolidation shares above the minimum issue price thresholds established by the Exchange.

The proposed consolidation is subject to the approval of the Company's shareholders and the Exchange.

Amendment to Articles

The Exchange has recently amended its policy to provide that share consolidations may be effected by a resolution of a company's directors, without shareholder approval, for consolidations with a consolidation ratio of up to 10:1. The Company's articles currently require shareholder approval of all consolidations, regardless of the consolidation ratio. The Exchange's policy amendment enables a listed company to act quickly, efficiently and with minimal expense to consolidate its share capital in circumstances where capital is needed, but Exchange policy prevents the company from conducting a private placement at the current market price for its shares. The Company's management believes it to be in the best interests of the Company that the Company be able to avail itself of this policy amendment. Accordingly, it is proposed that the articles of the Company be amended to permit share consolidations to be effected by a resolution of the directors only. A resolution to this effect will be placed before the shareholders at the Shareholders' Meeting.

The amendment to the Company's articles is subject to the approval of the shareholders and the TSX Venture Exchange.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate.

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.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
