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.

Intermap's GeoPro is a centralized data repository that integrates all types of geospatial and non-geospatial data within a secure and virtualized environment.

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.

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...
