MONTREAL, CANADA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/02/14 -- Affinor Resources (CSE: AFI)(FRANKFURT: 1AF)(PINKSHEETS: RSSFF) ("Affinor" or the "Corporation) executes master plan to begin global food production.
Affinor is excited to announce it has reached an agreement in principle to secure an exclusive license (the "License") to the world's first automated technology growing non-GMO grade A1 market ready strawberries with Vertical Designs Ltd. ("VDL"). Large, sweet berries grown purely from water and organic soil result from using a new automated software driven growing system. Mechanical pollination and zero water waste provide Affinor with the ability to grow crops indoor year-round regardless of seasonality.
VDL systems are not typical farming methods. They have been designed to industrialize, automate and mass-produce strawberries for global demand; working to solve global food security and shortage issues.
Affinor will use proprietary technology, optimized separately for growing leafy green vegetables and other food and produce items responding to market demands.
The advantage over traditional growing methods includes:
-- Zero water waste; -- Reduced Shipping costs and reliance on fossil fuels; -- Elimination of pesticides and other chemicals; -- Mechanical pollination helps save threatened bee colonies; -- 10 to 15 times increased yield per square foot of land; -- Dramatically reduced spoilage and extended shelf life of crops produced; -- Minimized environmental impact in terms of water use, land, and power; -- Less variable pricing with consistently available local product; -- Reduced capital requirements to maintain large scale farming equipment; -- Jobs creation and opportunities for employment in remote communities.
Pursuant to the terms of the Licence, Affinor will pay an aggregate $250,000 and issue a total of 1,000,000 common shares of the Corporation (the "Issuance") at deemed price of $0.25 per share to VDL upon the execution of the definitive Licence, which is expected to be early next week. In exchange VDL will run the development budgets, designs and deliver a turnkey production facility as well as secure purchasing agreement for all of the Corporation's production. VDL will be entitled to 5% net royalty on the production.
VDL being a related party to Affinor within the meaning of Regulation 61-101 respecting Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions (the "Regulation 61-101"). The Issuance will constitutes a "related party transaction" within the meaning of Regulation 61-101. However, the directors of the Corporation have determined that the exemptions from formal valuation and minority approval requirements provided for respectively under subsections 5.5(a) and 5.7(1)(a) of Regulation 61-101 can be relied on as neither the fair market value of the securities issued in favour of the related party nor the fair market value of the consideration paid for these securities exceed 25% of the Corporation's market capitalization. None of the Corporation's directors has expressed any contrary views or disagreements with respect to the foregoing. A material change report in respect of this related party transaction will be filed by the Corporation but could not be filed earlier than 21 days prior to the closing of the Licence due to the fact that the terms of the License were not confirmed and the necessity to act in a timely manner.
Sebastien Plouffe, President and CEO of Affinor, comments: "This transaction is exactly what our shareholders needed. While waiting for Health Canada to issue licences regarding Medical Marijuana in order to become a grower of premier in Medical Marijuana, we are taking a huge step to achieve our utimate goal to generate revenues and profits by setting the company to produce other major cash crops such as Romaine lettuce and Strawberies. We believe that this model will revolutionize the world in the area of food production by which a 12 months per year production will be executed without any pesticide and with very high quality products. We already have targeted the location to build the first facility and we shall execute the plan as soon as possible. Thanks VDL for this amazing opportunity, we are defininitly building a strong and long term relation with one of the best in the industry."
All securities issued pursuant to the Issuance will be subject to a hold period ending fourth month a day after their issuance.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Luis Lopez, CEO of Kurento, introduced the technologies required for implementing these idea...

While not quite mainstream yet, WebRTC is starting to gain ground with Carriers, Enterprises and Independent Software Vendors (ISV’s) alike. WebRTC makes it easy for developers to add audio and video communications into their applications by using Web browsers as their platform. But like any market, every customer engagement has unique requirements, as well as constraints. And of course, one size does not fit all. In her session at WebRTC Summit, Dr. Natasha Tamaskar, Vice President, Head of C...

The idea behind this session is my blog post - 5 Logstash Alternatives - which is unfortunately too short to do the presented log shippers justice. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Radu Gheorghe, Software Engineer at Sematext Group, will talk more about the things that matter: kinds of buffers, protocols, ways of parsing, correlating and de-duplicating messages, as well as supported inputs and outputs. And of course performance. All this should let you know which log shipper...

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. In this power panel at @...

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 ...
