CARLSBAD, CALIFORNIA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/31/14 -- Pacific Vector Holdings Inc. (TSX VENTURE:PVH) (the "Company") is providing this corporate update and the bi-weekly Default Status Report in accordance with National Policy 12-203 - Cease Trade Orders for Continuous Defaults ("NP 12-203"). On May 1, 2014 the Company disclosed in the default notice (the "Default Notice") that, for reasons disclosed in the Default Notice, there would be a delay in the filing of its annual financial statements, accompanying Management Discussion and Analysis and related CEO and CFO certifications of annual filings for the financial year ended January 7, 2014 (collectively, the "Required Filings").
As a result of this delay in filing the Required Filings, a management cease trade order was granted to the Company. The MCTO restricts all trading on the securities of the Company, whether direct or indirect, by the Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer of the Company until such time as the Required Filings have been filed by the Company. The MCTO does not affect the ability of all other shareholders who are insiders of the Corporation to trade their securities.
Below is the update on the status of the financing and a corporate update.
As announced on May 23, 2014, the Company was unable to obtain an immediate bridge of three hundred thousand dollars which would have allowed for the payment of current obligations. As a result, a first secured lender whose one million dollar loan was due April 17, 2014, has filed a notice of default. In addition, another secured lender, owed four hundred thousand dollars which matured on April 21, 2014 and an unsecured lender, owed one million dollars which matured on October 31, 2013 have filed notices of default. The Company is diligently working to cure the defaults.
As a result of the Company's financial circumstances, its stock price has reacted negatively and its ability to complete the conversion of US$6,959,987 in debt to equity and its ability to raise additional equity or debt has been greatly inhibited.
The Company has continued to advance the sale of the assets of Reno Wilson Inc. (Gatorz Eyewear) to a third party for gross proceeds of approximately $1.2M which is subject to fluctuations based on the value of the inventory and accounts receivable. The purchaser has completed the first draft of the legal agreements but the documents and structure will need to change as a result of the notice of default from the secured lender.
On May 28th, the Company's wholly owned subsidiary PVH DNA Inc. entered into a rescission agreement (the "Agreement") with DNA LLC, which is the company that owns the Alien Workshop, Habitat and Reflex skateboard brands.
The Agreement rescinds PVH DNA's 51% interest in DNA LLC and cancels the license that PVH DNA had to sell those brands.
Under the Agreement, the Company has 6 months to sell its current inventory of Alien Workshop, Habitat and Reflex skateboard branded products. In exchange Dyrdek Enterprises, the second largest shareholder which owned 46.5% of DNA LLC, has agreed to take over stewardship of DNA LLC and pay the final payroll for the PVH DNA employees.
The Company also closed its only retail location in New Mexico bringing the total number of retail locations closed since March to 19. The Company continues to have 15 retail locations in operation.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? 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 ...
