West Point Enters Exclusive Licensing Agreement with Cannabix Breathalyzer Inc.

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/15/14 -- West Point Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE: WPO) (the "Company") is pleased to announce it has entered into a binding letter of intent ("LOI") with Cannabix Breathalyzer Inc. ("Cannabix") dated May 13, 2014, which is developing a cutting edge marijuana breathalyzer for use by law enforcement to test for drug-impaired drivers, in particular drivers who are impaired due to the use of marijuana.

Cannabix's drug-impairment recognition system is based on breath testing technology that has been developed in Sweden and has been clinically researched and proven to be successful in testing individuals for recent consumption of the THC component of marijuana. Cannabix is advancing its products to enable law enforcement personnel to use this technology to enhance detection of marijuana impaired driving offences on North American roads at a time when marijuana is becoming legal in many jurisdictions. Cannabix holds patent applications on leading edge technology to breath test for marijuana impairment. West Point will be acquiring 100% of the exclusive North American licensing rights to Cannabix's technology.

Terms of the transaction

The LOI contemplates the company paying 7.5 million common shares to Cannabix for the exclusive licensing of the Cannabix Breathalyzer and issuing 7.5 million warrants exercisable at $0.075, exercisable for one year.

Financing

The company intends to raise a minimum $500,000 via a non-brokered financing at $0.05 cents per unit. Each Unit consists of one common share and one-half of one non-transferable common share purchase warrant exercisable at $0.10 cents per common share for a period of 12 months from the date of closing. All warrants are subject to an early acceleration provision which provides for the mandatory exercise or expiry of the Warrants in the event West Point's shares close at $0.13 or higher for at least 10 consecutive trading days. In such event, the Warrants will accelerate and expire 30 days after the Company has given notice of the accelerated conversion to the Warrant holders. Finders' fees may be payable in connection with the private placement in accordance with exchange policies.

As conditions of closing, along with minimum $500,000 financing required to be raised, Cannabix will nominate two members to the Board of Directors of the company.

Additional milestone payments

The LOI contemplates future share payments upon reaching the following milestones: The issuance of 7,500,000 of common shares of West Point within 14 business days of production of prototype of product. Furthermore, upon receipt of the final patent, the company will issue 5,000,000 common shares of West Point.

For far too long technology teams have lived in siloes. Not only physical siloes, but cultural siloes pushed by competing objectives.

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged.

The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality.

Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control.
