ERIE, PA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/21/14 -- Fortitude Group, Inc. (OTC: FRTD) announced today the progress for the special share issuance of Affinity Mediaworks Corp. (OTCQB: AFFW).

As previously announced, 9,250,000 shares of Affinity Mediaworks Corp., which represents approximately 14% of the to-be-issued and outstanding stock of Affinity Mediaworks, are being issued as a special share issuance to bonafide shareholders of record of Fortitude Group, Inc. as of 6:00 pm on March 14, 2014. This issuance has been calculated for every 92 FRTD shares beneficially owned by a Fortitude shareholder. They shall be entitled to receive 1 new additional share of Affinity Mediaworks. Affinity Mediaworks is set to invest $4,000,000 for a 45% equity ownership in PRIMARQ in April 2014. Based on preliminary pro-forma numbers, while still a pre-revenue company, within 90-days of funding PRIMARQ is set to ramp up to over $200 million per year in revenue.

As of March 17, 2014, management of the Company has ordered its current NOBO (Non-Objecting Beneficial Owner) list from DTC as well as its most recent certified shareholders list from the company's transfer agent. The completion of the bonafide shareholders list should be completed by March 31, 2014. To help ensure bonafide shareholders of record do not miss out on this special share issuance, the Company is pleased to announce that beginning March 22, 2014, shareholders of the Company can go to http://www.FRTDIssuance.com and input their personal information which will include their name, address, phone number, number of shares beneficially owned as of March 14, 2014, purchase price and a required screenshot upload to verify the shareholders brokerage position.

The Board of Directors of Affinity Mediaworks Corp. have ratified and instructed the issuance of 9,250,000 shares of Affinity to the Company's transfer agent, to be issued in the name of Fortitude Group, Inc. and sent via overnight currier to Fortitude. Management of Fortitude expects to be in receipt of the certificate during the week of March 24, 2014.

Certificates will be sent to bonafide shareholders of record of Fortitude no later than the second week of April, 2014.

The 9,250,000 shares of Affinity Mediaworks Corp. being distributed to Fortitude bonafide shareholders of record will carry registration rights and be registered in the Company's S-1(which will be filed with the SEC April 2014). The average timeline for an S-1 to be deemed effective is 90-days from the initial submission to the SEC.

We have listened to these comments and hope this update will help bring clarity to how this transaction is being completed.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm. In his Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, will explore t...
