VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/05/14 -- Blox, Inc. (OTCQB: BLXX) ("Blox" or the "Company") is pleased to announce it has completed its acquisition of International Eco Endeavors Corp., a private British Columbia, Canada corporation ("Eco Endeavors"), on February 27, 2014, pursuant to the terms of an amalgamation agreement, as amended (the "Amalgamation Agreement"), among Blox, Ourco Capital Ltd. ("Ourco"), Blox's wholly-owned subsidiary, Eco Endeavors, and two affiliated subsidiaries of Eco Endeavors. Blox closed the Amalgamation Agreement and completed the amalgamation of Ourco and Eco Endeavors under the name "Blox Energy Inc." ("Amalco"), thereby acquiring all of the issued and outstanding shares of Amalco on February 27, 2014. Following the amalgamation, Blox became a renewable energy company that indirectly owns an operating biogas plant in Hungary. Blox is also engaged in the development of other renewable energy projects and intends to expand into the provision of renewable energy services by applying sustainability initiatives to the industries of mining, technology, and infrastructure development.
Pursuant to the terms of the Amalgamation Agreement, and on the closing date thereof, all of the issued and outstanding common shares of Eco Endeavors were cancelled, and the former shareholders of Eco Endeavors received in exchange 60,000,000 units of Blox on a pro rata basis. Each unit consists of one common share and one share purchase warrant, each warrant exercisable into an additional common share of Blox at an exercise price of US$0.05 per share for a period of five years from the closing date. Based upon the price of the concurrent financing of US$0.05 per unit, the aggregate value of the common shares issued to the former Eco Endeavors shareholders was US$3,000,000.
In connection with the closing of the Amalgamation Agreement, Blox completed a non-brokered private placement, pursuant to which Blox issued an aggregate of 20,000,000 units at a price of $0.05 per unit for gross proceeds of US$1,000,000. Each unit consisted of one common share and one share purchase warrant, each warrant entitling the holder to acquire an additional common share at the exercise price of US$0.05 for a period of five years from the closing of the financing.
"The completion of this transaction serves as a significant milestone in the foundation of Blox," says the Company's new President and Chief Executive Officer, Robert Abenante. "As we proceed with our planned acquisitions, we are confident the continued growth will enable us to capitalize on many global opportunities." Blox anticipates closing its acquisition of Quivira Gold Ltd., as announced in its news release dated June 24, 2013, in the coming quarter.
Upon the closing of the Amalgamation Agreement, the Company's board of directors appointed Robert Abenante as a director of Blox and Robert Abenante, Cedric Wilson, and Robert Ironside were appointed directors of Amalco. Effective as of the closing of the Amalgamation Agreement, Ronald Renne resigned from all executive officer positions and Robert Abenante was appointed as Chief Executive Officer and President, Kimberly Gillett was appointed Corporate Secretary, and Marco Parente was appointed as Interim Chief Financial Officer.
"We are pleased to welcome Mr. Abenante and his team to Blox. The amalgamation brings years of experience in the renewable energy industry to the Company and we are confident this transaction will play a significant role in realizing the Blox vision," says the Company's Chairman, Ronald Renne.
Following the closing of the transaction, Blox had 101,572,464 common shares issued and outstanding. Blox anticipates filing a current report on Form 8-K, which will include the information required by a registration statement on Form 10, on EDGAR and SEDAR on or before March 5, 2014. The Form 8-K will include additional details regarding the terms of the Amalgamation Agreement, other agreements entered into pursuant to the Amalgamation Agreement, and financial statements for Eco Endeavors.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.

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...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
