BENEV Capital Inc. Announces Receipt of Director Nominees from Difference Capital Financial Inc. and Confirms Corporate Strategic Direction

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/27/14 -- BENEV Capital Inc. (TSX VENTURE: BEV.H) (the "Corporation" or "BCI") confirmed that it has received from Difference Capital Financial Inc. ("DCF") information regarding five (5) proposed director nominees. BCI is reviewing this information and will assess whether it complies with BCI's advance notice by-law, recently approved by shareholders.

As BCI announced last week, its Board has approved a corporate strategy to purchase, primarily, top-line royalty streams from a number of growing Canadian multi-location businesses and franchisors. The structure of the royalty acquisitions is expected to be similar to other successful, publicly traded top-line multi-location business royalty companies.

The BCI Board has concluded that a multi-royalty structure would be a good value enhancing strategy for BCI. If BCI successfully completes a royalty transaction, it would be BCI's intention to thereafter pay out substantially all of its distributable cash to shareholders, as is the case with similar publicly traded issuers.

BCI believes there are numerous growing Canadian multi-location businesses and franchisors that would be interested in this type of transaction and that it would be able to acquire those royalties on an accretive basis.

DCF's news release, issued yesterday, claimed inaccurately that BCI announced a dramatic shift in strategy and that it was made without consultation with the Corporation's major shareholders, including DCF. That is simply not true. Firstly, there has been no dramatic shift in BCI's strategy. BCI has been pursuing a transformative transaction for several years, with a preference on acquiring an income producing asset. Last week's press release simply provided BCI's shareholders with some clarity on our Corporate Strategic Direction with respect to acquiring an income producing asset. Secondly, the Corporation did consult with shareholders, including DCF and several other significant shareholders, prior to the announcement of its Corporate Strategic Direction.

In addition, for several months, DCF has been invited to present a proposed transaction to the BCI Board. No coherent or well thought-out proposal has been presented by DCF.

Furthermore, as BCI has already announced, the completion of any proposed transformative transaction would be subject to BCI shareholder approval.

To Really Work for Enterprises, MultiCloud Adoption Requires Far Better and Inclusive Cloud Monitoring and Cost Management … But How? Overwhelmingly, even as enterprises have adopted cloud computing and are expanding to multi-cloud computing, IT leaders remain concerned about how to monitor, manage and control costs across hybrid and multi-cloud deployments. It’s clear that traditional IT monitoring and management approaches, designed after all for on-premises data centers, are falling short in ...

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. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...

For far too long technology teams have lived in siloes. Not only physical siloes, but cultural siloes pushed by competing objectives. This includes informational siloes where business users require one set of data and tech teams require different data. DevOps intends to bridge these gaps to make tech driven operations more aligned and efficient.
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
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. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
