BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS -- (Marketwired) -- 05/05/14 -- Crossover Healthcare Fund ("Crossover") announces that pursuant to certain acquisitions ("Acquisitions") it has acquired direct or beneficial ownership in securities of Pivotal Therapeutics Inc.

Prior to the Acquisitions, Crossover beneficially owned or controlled, directly or indirectly, 464,500 Common Shares or 0.6% of the issued and outstanding Common Shares of Pivotal.

Pursuant to a non-brokered private placement ("Private Placement") Crossover subscribed for 12,462,768 units of Pivotal ("Units") at the price of CDN $0.22 per Unit, each Unit consisting of one Common Share and one-half of a Common Share purchase Warrant, for aggregate consideration of CDN $2,741,809. Directly after the closing of the Private Placement, Crossover held ownership of an aggregate of 12,927,268 Common Shares and 6,231,388 Warrants.

In addition, Crossover acquired 1,649.28 Debt Units of Pivotal at a price of CDN $1,000 per Debt Unit for aggregate consideration of CDN $1,649,280 (the "Debt Financing"). Each Debt Unit consists of a convertible promissory note (the "Notes") and Warrants to purchase 1,200 Common Shares of Pivotal. Crossover may convert the Notes into Common Shares for CDN $0.20 per Common Share at any time prior to two (2) years from the date of issuance of the Notes. Each Warrant may be exercised to purchase one Common Share upon payment of the exercise price of CDN $0.30 per Common Share, exercisable after the date of issuance and shall expire five (5) years after the date of issuance. Pivotal issued 250,000 Warrants to Crossover as payment for interest accrued in connection with Crossover's ownership of Debt Units purchased under the Debt Financing.

As a result of the Acquisitions, Crossover currently holds 12,927,268 Common Shares representing 14.1% of the 91,916,277 issued and outstanding Common Shares.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
