Eurogas International Inc. Announces 2013 Financial Results

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 01/30/14 -- Eurogas International Inc. (CSE: EI) ("Eurogas International" or the "Corporation") today reported its 2013 financial results. The Corporation's audited financial statements, along with the accompanying management's discussion and analysis have been filed on the System for Electronic Document Analysis and Retrieval ("SEDAR") and may be viewed by interested parties under the Corporation's profile at www.sedar.com or the Corporation's website at www.eurogasinternational.com.

FINANCIAL RESULTS

During the year ended December 31, 2013, the Corporation incurred a net loss of $2.1 million (2012 - $2.1 million), or a loss of approximately $0.07 per share (2012 - $0.07 per share).

Farmout Agreement with DNO Tunisia AS

In June 2013, the Corporation and its joint venture partner, Atlas Petroleum Exploration Worldwide Ltd. ("APEX" and, together with the Corporation, the "Original Contractors") entered into negotiations to complete a farmout agreement with DNO Tunisia AS, a subsidiary of DNO International ASA, in respect of the Sfax Permit. The farmout agreement with DNO (the "DNO Agreement") provides for DNO acquiring an 87.5% working interest in the Sfax Permit in exchange for a US$6 million cash payment to the Original Contractors, and the carrying of 100% of all future costs associated with the Sfax Permit, including the associated drilling commitments. DNO will assume operatorship of the Sfax Permit under the terms of the DNO Agreement. The DNO Agreement was completed on January 17, 2014, whereupon the Corporation received US$2.7 million, representing its 45% interest of the US$6.0 million cash payment received from DNO.

Under the terms of the DNO Agreement, the Original Contractors will be entitled to 12.5% of the profit oil or profit gas component of production from the Sfax Permit, to a maximum of US$125 million (or 12.5% of the profit oil or profit gas from the production of 75 million barrel of oil equivalents, whichever comes first). Thereafter, the Original Contractors are entitled to 6.25% of the profit oil or profit gas component of production from the Sfax Permit to a maximum of an additional US$75 million (or 6.25% of the profit oil or profit gas component from the production of an additional 45 million barrel of oil equivalents, whichever comes first). The Corporation is entitled to 45% of any payments made to the Original Contractors under these arrangements.

The Original Contractors have conceded a temporary deferral of 50% of their entitlement to a share of the profit oil or profit gas component of production from the Sfax Permit, as outlined above, until such time as DNO recovers $150 million of total incurred costs, including costs to be incurred by DNO subsequent to completion of the DNO Agreement, from the cost oil or cost gas component of production on the Sfax Permit.

In addition to their entitlement to a share of the profit oil or profit gas, the DNO Agreement also provides the Original Contractors with entitlement to receive 20% of the cost oil or cost gas component of production from the Sfax Permit, to a maximum of the lesser of 18% of the costs incurred by the Original Contractors prior to completion of the DNO Agreement, or US$20 million.

Under the terms of the DNO Agreement, and with the approval of the Tunisian authorities, DNO has contractually assumed full responsibility for completion of the drilling obligations associated with the Sfax Permit, including any compensatory payments that may arise as a result of non-compliance. In that regard, DNO has provided a full guarantee to the Tunisian governmental authorities.

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.
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.

Traditional on-premises data centers have long been the domain of modern data platforms like Apache Hadoop, meaning companies who build their business on public cloud were challenged to run Big Data processing and analytics at scale.

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...
