Sonomax Technologies Inc. (CSE:SHH) is providing this bi-weekly default status report in accordance with National Policy 12-203 Cease Trade Orders for Continuous Disclosure Defaults. On May 6, 2014, Sonomax announced by way of press release that for the reasons disclosed therein, the filing of Sonomax’s audited financial statements for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2013 and the related management’s discussion and analysis (collectively, the “2013 Annual Financial Statements”) would not be completed by the legal deadline of April 30, 2014.
As a result of the delay in filing the 2013 Annual Financial Statements, Sonomax’s principal regulator, the Autorité des marchés financiers, granted a management cease-trade order (“MCTO”) to Sonomax. The MCTO restricts all trading in securities of Sonomax, whether direct or indirect, by Sonomax’s six directors and senior officers until such time as the 2013 Annual Financial Statements are filed by Sonomax. The MCTO does not affect the ability of other shareholders of Sonomax to trade their securities.
As previously reported, Sonomax’s failure to file the 2013 Annual Financial Statements by the prescribed deadline is due to Sonomax making the necessary arrangements to complete its 2013 annual audit. In particular, in light of its difficult financial situation, Sonomax must make satisfactory arrangements to pay its auditors. Sonomax again confirms that is actively seeking the necessary funding and is confident that it will be able to make such satisfactory financial arrangements with its auditors shortly.
Pursuant to the provisions of the alternative information guidelines specified by National Policy 12-203, Sonomax reports that since May 6, 2014, except as stated in this default status report, there have not been any material changes to the information contained therein; nor any failure by Sonomax to fulfill its intentions as stated therein with respect to satisfying the provisions of the alternative information guidelines, and there are no additional defaults or anticipated defaults subsequent to the disclosure therein, other than the delay in filing the 2013 Annual Financial Statements and a default in filing Sonomax’s interim financial statements and related management discussion and analysis for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 by the prescribed deadline of May 30, 2014. Further, Sonomax confirms that, at the date hereof, there are no insolvency proceedings against it and no other material information concerning the affairs of Sonomax that has not been generally disclosed.
Until the 2013 Annual Financial Statements are filed, Sonomax intends to continue to satisfy the provisions of the alternative information guidelines specified by National Policy 12-203 by issuing bi-weekly default status reports in the form of further press releases, which will also be filed on SEDAR. Sonomax would file, to the extent applicable, its next default status report on or about July 4, 2014.
Sonomax also announces the resignations of Mr. Peter Malouf, Chairman, and Mr. Peter Brennan, Vice-Chairman of the Board of Directors of Sonomax. Management would like to thank these gentlemen for many years of service and dedication to Sonomax. As Sonomax starts down a path to attempt to reorganize the company, it is no longer possible for them to stay on the Board. As a result, the Board of Directors of Sonomax consists of Nick Laperle, Adam Schwartz and Kevin Veenstra.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

In today's enterprise, digital transformation represents organizational change even more so than technology change, as customer preferences and behavior drive end-to-end transformation across lines of business as well as IT. To capitalize on the ubiquitous disruption driving this transformation, companies must be able to innovate at an increasingly rapid pace. Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facin...

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...

Culture is the most important ingredient of DevOps. The challenge for most organizations is defining and communicating a vision of beneficial DevOps culture for their organizations, and then facilitating the changes needed to achieve that. Often this comes down to an ability to provide true leadership. As a CIO, are your direct reports IT managers or are they IT leaders? The hard truth is that many IT managers have risen through the ranks based on their technical skills, not their leadership ab...
