MONTREAL, QUEBEC -- (Marketwired) -- 03/03/14 -- McWatters Mining Inc. ("McWatters" or the "Corporation") hereby notifies the holders of Class A Preferred Shares in its share capital ("Class A Preferred Shares") that the board of directors of the Corporation has adopted earlier today a resolution pursuant to which the Corporation will redeem all of the Class A Preferred Shares which will be outstanding as of 5:00 p.m. (Montreal time) on March 5, 2014.
As a result, each holder of Class A Preferred Shares of record as of 5:00 p.m. (Montreal time) on March 5, 2014 will be entitled to receive a redemption amount of $0.000535 per share. A cheque will be mailed shortly thereafter by Computershare Investor Services Inc. ("Computershare") to each holder of Class A Preferred Shares entitled to $2.00 or more in the aggregate whose address in the Corporation's records is accurate, without any further action being required from the holder. Holders of Class A Preferred Shares who have not received their cheque before March 31, 2014 should contact Computershare at 1.800.564.6253 in the case of registered holders, or their broker or other intermediary in the case of beneficial holders, in order to claim their entitlement. All funds necessary for the payment of the redemption amounts to the holders of Class A Preferred Shares have already been delivered by the Corporation to Computershare.
All Class A Preferred Shares will be automatically redeemed as of 5:00 p.m. (Montreal time) on March 5, 2014 and, from and after such time, the holders of Class A Preferred Shares will no longer have any rights as shareholders of the Corporation other than to receive the redemption amounts to which they are entitled.
The adoption by the board of directors of the Corporation of the resolution giving effect to the redemption of all Class A Preferred Shares by the Corporation follows the approval by the shareholders of the Corporation, at a special meeting held earlier today, of amendments to the articles of the Corporation which now allow the Corporation to redeem the Class A Preferred Shares at its option and without the consent of the holders thereof.

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...

Choosing the right cloud for your workloads is a balancing act that can cost your organization time, money and aggravation - unless you get it right the first time. Economics, speed, performance, accessibility, administrative needs and security all play a vital role in dictating your approach to the cloud. Without knowing the right questions to ask, you could wind up paying for capacity you'll never need or underestimating the resources required to run your applications.

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, ...

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
