Seair Announces Proposed Offering and 2012 Debenture Amendments

CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/08/14 -- Seair Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SDS) ("Seair" or the "Company") announces that it has engaged Integral Capital Markets, a division of Integral Wealth Securities Limited ("Integral") as its exclusive agent on a private placement offering of convertible debentures (the "Offering"). The Offering will be a minimum of $500,000 and up to a maximum of $1,000,000 million of secured, subordinate, convertible, redeemable debentures (the "2014 Debentures") having the following principal terms:

1.  Conversion at $0.30 per common share in the capital of the Company (the
    "Common Shares") at the holder's option, any time prior to maturity. 

2.  The Company can force the conversion of the 2014 Debentures into Common
    Shares at any time starting six months after closing if (a) the Common
    Shares trade above a volume weighted average of $0.38 per share for 20
    consecutive trading days and (b) the Company has previously reported a
    quarter with positive net income;

3.  Debentures rank pari passu with the Company's existing 8% secured,
    subordinate, convertible, redeemable debentures due December 31, 2015
    (the "2012 Debentures"); and

4.  Maturity is December 31, 2015.

5.  The Company will have a redemption option upon no less more than 60 days
    and less than 30 days notice, (the "Redemption Notice"). Holders will
    have the right to convert their 2014 Debentures prior to the expiry of
    the Redemption Notice. 

The 2014 Debentures will be governed pursuant to a trust indenture to be entered into on or prior to the closing of the Offering.

The Company expects to close the Offering in May 2014. As a condition precedent to the closing of the Offering, the Company must receive approval of the holders of the 2012 Debentures to amend the terms thereof as follows:

1.  to permit the security to be granted in respect of the 2014 Debentures
    to rank pari passu with the 2012 Debentures;

2.  to remove security restrictions on the assets comprising the Company's
    septic division to allow for their sale in addition to their rental and
    to provide for the division of any proceeds resulting from such sales;

3.  to provide the Company with an option to pay interest payable on the
    2012 Debentures in Common Shares instead of cash.

There will not be any changes to the conversion price or the maturity date of the 2012 Debentures.

In connection with the amendment of the terms of the 2012 Debentures, the Company will call a meeting of the holders of the 2012 Debentures, such meeting currently anticipated to be held mid-May, 2014.

"We are happy to be working with Integral and I'm comfortable that we will be able to close this transaction, including the proposed modifications to the 2012 Debentures, before the end of May 2014" said Jim Laird, CFO. "We believe these changes to the 2012 Debentures, including the ability to sell under-utilized septic assets which don't fit our current strategy, will provide the Company with the required working capital to support the business as our strategic partnership revenue comes online before the end of 2014. We look forward to discussing more details with our shareholders at our AGM on May 20, 2014."

Please refer to the Company's SEDAR filings for further information on these proposals. The Offering and amendment to the 2012 Debentures are subject to all applicable approvals including, but not limited to, the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.


Seair Inc. develops proprietary technology and equipment that diffuses gases, such as oxygen, ozone and carbon dioxide, into liquids. Seair's patented technologies can produce micron size bubbles that are more efficient than other diffusion technologies because the diffused gases remain in solution for extended periods of time, leading to increased productivity and lower operating costs. The process facilitates gas-based treatment of complex and challenging industrial wastewater and allows Seair to provide full water reuse and closed loop systems.

Seair applications include oil sands SAGD water solutions, frac and produced water treatment, industrial ponds treatment, mine dewatering/treatment, end-to-end sewage treatment for permanent residential communities and remote work camps, golf course irrigation and pond treatment. Seair is also working on a project for industrial emissions treatment.

We all know that data growth is exploding and storage budgets are shrinking.

After you have your data under control, you can then analyze it in one place, saving time and resources.
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation.

How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.
Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...
