McWatters Mining Inc. Notifies Holders of the Redemption of All Class A Preferred Shares

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.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...
