BRAMPTON, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 04/30/14 -- Brampton Brick Limited ("BBL" or the "Company") (TSX:BBL.A) announced today that the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "Exchange") has accepted a notice filed by BBL of its intention to make a Normal Course Issuer Bid (the "Bid").
The notice provides that BBL may, during the 12 month period commencing May 6, 2014 and ending May 5, 2015, purchase on the Exchange up to 460,086 Class A Subordinate Voting shares in total, being approximately 5% of the total number of Class A Subordinate Voting shares outstanding. The price which BBL will pay for any such shares will be the market price at the time of acquisition. The actual number of Class A Subordinate Voting shares which may be purchased pursuant to the Bid and the timing of any such purchases will be determined by management of BBL. As at April 21, 2014 there were 9,201,723 Class A Subordinate Voting shares and 1,738,631 Class B Multiple Voting shares outstanding. The average daily trading volume of Class A Subordinate Voting shares ("ADTV") for the most recently completed six calendar months is 975. The maximum number of Class A Subordinate Voting shares that may be purchased in one day pursuant to the Bid will be the greater of 1,000 and 25% of ADTV. All Class A Subordinate Voting share purchases will be made on the open market through the facilities of the Exchange and will be purchased for cancellation.
BBL believes that its Class A Subordinate Voting shares have been trading in a price range which does not adequately reflect the value of such shares in relation to the business of BBL and its future business prospects. As a result, depending upon future price movements and other factors, BBL believes that its outstanding Class A Subordinate Voting shares may represent an attractive investment to BBL. Furthermore, the purchases are expected to benefit all persons who continue to hold Class A Subordinate Voting shares by increasing their equity interest in BBL.

If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

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...
