GrowthWorks Canadian Fund Ltd. Provides Update on Sale and Investor Solicitation Process and Issues Default Status Report Pursuant to National Policy 12-203

TORONTO, March 6, 2014 /CNW/ - GrowthWorks Canadian Fund Ltd. (the "Fund"), which previously announced that it obtained orders of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice (the "Court") granting it creditor protection pursuant to the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act (Canada) ("CCAA") until and including March 7, 2014, today announced that it has obtained an order of the Court (the "Stay Extension Order") to further extend the "Stay Period" until and including April 10, 2014. The Stay Extension Order continues and extends the stay of proceedings, which has stayed certain creditor claims and the exercise of contractual rights against the Fund.

The Fund has completed its sale and investor solicitation process (the "SISP"). During Phase 1 of the SISP, the Fund solicited non-binding letters of intent from parties interested in purchasing or investing in the Fund's business and property. Six interested parties qualified to participate in Phase 2 of the SISP. During Phase 2 of the SISP, additional information relating to the Fund's portfolio of investments was provided to the participating bidders. Two proposals were submitted by the Phase 2 bid deadline, neither of which constituted a "Qualifying Bid" (as defined in the SISP) since, among other reasons, neither included a purchase price or funds to be invested in an amount sufficient to satisfy in full in cash the Fund's payment obligations to Roseway Capital S.a.r.l. ("Roseway") under the Participation Agreement between the Fund and Roseway dated May 28, 2010, as amended. No offer to complete a merger transaction was received. Following discussions between the Fund, its advisors, FTI Consulting Canada Inc. in its capacity as Court-appointed monitor (the "Monitor") and Roseway and its advisors, neither proposal was accepted.

Together with the assistance of the Monitor, the Fund and its advisors are currently in discussions with Roseway and its advisors to formulate an appropriate asset management and realization plan, with a view to maximizing the return on the Fund's portfolio investments for the benefit of its stakeholders.

The Fund is also providing a default status report in accordance with the alternative information guidelines set out in National Policy 12-203 Cease Trade Orders for Continuous Disclosure Defaults ("NP 12-203").  On December 3, 2013, the Fund announced (the "Default Announcement") that it did not file its audited annual financial statements and related management report of fund performance for the year ended August 31, 2013 under National Instrument 81-106 Investment Fund Continuous Disclosure (collectively, the "Financial Documents") or an annual information form by November 29, 2013, the deadline prescribed by applicable securities legislation.  There have been no material changes to the information contained in the Default Announcement or any other changes required to be disclosed under NP 12-203.  The Fund still intends to file the Financial Documents and other applicable continuous disclosure documents as soon as is commercially reasonable, or as required by the Court pursuant to the Fund's CCAA Proceedings.

Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
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 smart...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
An IoT product’s log files speak volumes about what’s happening with your products in the field, pinpointing current and potential issues, and enabling you to predict failures and save millions of dollars in inventory.

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.

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
