U3O8 Corp. to Renew Shareholders Rights Plan

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 05/09/14 -- U3O8 Corp. (TSX: UWE)(OTCQX: UWEFF), a Canadian-based company focused on exploration and development of uranium resources and associated commodities in South America, announced that its Board of Directors (the "Board") has adopted a resolution to renew its current shareholders rights plan, which is due to expire on May 25, 2014.

U3O8 Corp. has had a shareholders rights plan in place since 2008 (the "2008 Plan"). The 2014 shareholders rights plan (the "2014 Plan") is substantially similar to, and maintains the protection afforded to shareholders under the 2008 Plan and was not adopted in response to any anticipated take-over bid.

The 2014 Plan is effective immediately and will be submitted for shareholder approval at U3O8 Corp's 2014 annual meeting. A complete copy of the 2014 Plan will be filed on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

The Plan encourages fair treatment of shareholders should a take-over bid be made for U3O8 Corp., and will provide the Company's Board and shareholders more time to consider an unsolicited take-over bid for U3O8 Corp. The Plan is intended to discourage coercive or unfair take-over bids and gives the Board time to pursue alternatives to maximize shareholder's value, if appropriate, in the event of an unsolicited take-over bid.

About U3O8 Corp.

U3O8 Corp. is focused on exploration and development of uranium resources and associated commodities in South America. The company's uranium resources comprise three deposits defined in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 located in Colombia, Argentina and Guyana:

--  Berlin Deposit, Colombia - a preliminary economic assessment ("PEA")
    shows that Berlin could be a zero cash cost uranium producer thanks to
    revenue from by-products of phosphate, vanadium, nickel, rare earths
    (yttrium and neodymium) and other metals occurring in the same deposit;

--  Laguna Salada Deposit, Argentina - a PEA is due shortly on this near
    surface, free-digging uranium, vanadium deposit that is potentially
    amenable to low-cost mining and processing methods; and

--  Kurupung Deposit, Guyana - an initial uranium deposit in a large
    emerging uranium district.

U3O8 Corp. also recently announced an opportunity with potential to generate modest cash flow in the short-term from the Carina property in Argentina - various options are being evaluated to maximize this non-core asset that offers near-term production prospects for frac sand for potential use in the shale oil and gas industry.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Le...
