MONTREAL, QUEBEC -- (Marketwired) -- 05/15/14 -- Peak Positioning Technologies Inc. (TSX VENTURE: PKK) ("Peak" or the "Company") today announced that it has concluded its due diligence, has filed the necessary documents with the TSX Venture exchange related to its planned acquisition of the assets associated with Quickable marketplace, and has set a closing agenda to close on the transaction on June 13, 2014.
Peak and Quick Technologies LLC ("Quick Tech"), the current owner of Quickable, are working diligently to draft and execute the necessary legal documents to officially transfer the Quickable assets to Peak. As compensation for the Quickable assets, Quick Tech will receive from Peak, at the closing of the transaction, CAD$200,000 in cash, CAD$200,000 in interest-free promissory notes and 20 million Peak shares at a deemed price of CAD$0.05 per share for a total consideration at closing of CAD$1.4 million. Quick Tech will also receive 5% of the top-line revenues generated by the Quickable.com assets through the end of calendar year 2016 up to a maximum of CAD$600,000 in cash, bringing the total compensation payable to Quick Tech for the Quickable.com assets to CAD$2 million.
"We view Quickable as a key component of our strategic plan going forward, particularly for its potential in the fast-growing Chinese mobile e-commerce market", said Johnson Joseph, President and CEO of Peak. "With that in mind, we strongly believe that this transaction is structured in a way that creates a win-win situation for both Peak and Quick Tech, and that it will ultimately bring significant value to all Peak shareholders", concluded Mr. Joseph.
Debt Settlement with Newfield Partners LLC
Peak also announced that it has settled a "shares for debt" transaction with Newfield Partners LLC ("Newfield"). On May 12, 2014, Peak issued 1,670,040 common shares to Newfield at a deemed price of $0.05 per share to repay $83,502 worth of short-term notes payable to Newfield, which matured on April 30, 2014.
Pursuant to Policy 5.9 of the TSXV and Multilateral Instrument 61-101 Respecting protection of minority security holders in special transactions ("MI 61-101"), the debt settlement transaction constitutes a "related party transaction" as Newfield is controlled by Mr. David Kugler (the "Related Party"), who is a member of Peak's Board of Director. In reviewing the applicable valuation requirements under MI 61-101, Peak has determined that the exemption set out in subsection 5.5 (c) of MI 61-101 is applicable since the transaction is a distribution of securities of Peak to the Related Party for cash consideration. In addition, subsection 5.7(b) provides that a transaction meeting such criteria is also exempt from the minority shareholder approval requirement. Peak has not filed a material change report 21 days prior to the closing of the debt settlement transaction as no agreement to that effect was in place at that time.

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises.
The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels.
With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively.
What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...

Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, wh...

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud.
In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of So...

What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...

As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
