The warrants expire in three years and are subject to adjustment in certain events.
The Debt Financing is subject to a prepayment right by the Company at 116% of the principal amount at anytime following six months from the date of closing, subject to a 60 day notice period and the holder's right to exercise its conversion rights during any such notice period.
The Debt Financing is expected to be completed on or about February 6, 2014 and is subject to receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSX, and satisfaction to all other customary closing conditions.
The Company intends to use the proceeds of the Debt Financing to accelerate the development and market introduction of its RiskPro and and GeoPro 3D Business Intelligence software products for governments, enterprises and consumers.
Intermap's RiskPro software application combines cutting-edge analytics and best-of-class terrain data into a clear, visual risk management solution. RiskPro allows users to analyze, visualize, and customize risk forecasting for any location in the world. Large portfolios of locations can be imported, analyzed and inspected quickly and easily. RiskPro users have access to the most current datasets, including the Company's proprietary flood and fire models. Organizations using RiskPro benefit by rapidly receiving answers regarding the multiple risks on their facilities, portfolios, and assets. The answers that RiskPro delivers help users properly protect and insure their people, property, and infrastructure.
Intermap's GeoPro is a centralized data repository that integrates all types of geospatial and non-geospatial data within a secure and virtualized environment. GeoPro allows users to deliver advanced analytics by combining datasets in never before imagined ways to produce unique insights and answers. The software's policy-based log-in and control features enable administrators to support as many users as desired and set the content access to match the needs of their organization. GeoPro is powerful enough for the advanced GIS user, but simple enough for non-GIS users. GeoPro differs from other GIS software on the market as it delivers straight forward answers, as opposed to delivering another map or data layer to be interpreted by the user. GeoPro can be bundled with data from Intermap's extensive worldwide NEXTMap® database to allow users to immediately begin productive use of the software.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

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...
