VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/20/14 -- Mediterranean Resources Ltd. (TSX: MNR)(FRANKFURT: MHM1) ("Mediterranean" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the cease trade order dated May 2, 2014 issued by the British Columbia Securities Commission was revoked on June 3, 2014, and the cease trade orders dated April 16, 2014 and May 14, 2014 issued by the Manitoba Securities Commission were revoked on April 17, 2014 and June 4, 2014, respectively. The Company filed an application on June 16, 2014 with the Ontario Securities Commission ("OSC") for the revocation of the cease trade order dated May 20, 2014 (the "OSC CTO"). The cease trade orders were issued in connection with the Company's late filing of its financial statements, management's discussion and analysis, annual information form and related certifications for the year ended December 31, 2013.
The Company is also pleased to announce that it has received a further extension with respect to the delisting of its common shares (the "Shares") from the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX"), and that the Shares will now be delisted from the TSX at the close of business on Thursday July 17, 2014. On May 16, 2014, the TSX announced its decision to delist the Shares at the close of business on June 16, 2014. On May 23, 2014, the Company appealed the decision of the TSX with respect to the delisting of the Shares, and on June 10, 2014 the TSX announced an extension of the delisting date to June 19, 2014 in order to hear an appeal from the Company. On June 19, 2014, following the hearing of the Company's appeal on June 18, 2014, the TSX announced a further extension of the delisting date to July 17, 2014.
The Company has made an application to the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV") to migrate the listing of its Shares from the TSX to the TSXV. There can be no assurance that a listing on the TSXV will be obtained before the Company is delisted from the TSX, or at all. The TSX has indicated that further extensions to the delist date may be granted if the TSX is confident that the Company is actively working to move to another market.
Once the OSC CTO has been revoked, management of the Company intends to apply to the TSX to request that the suspension on trading of the Shares be lifted while the Company focuses on recommencing business operations of the Company, including development of the Company's primary assets in Turkey.
Signed on behalf of the Board of Directors,
Robert Abenante, Chairman, President & CEO

Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats. In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.

Digital Transformation is the ultimate goal of cloud computing and related initiatives. The phrase is certainly not a precise one, and as subject to hand-waving and distortion as any high-falutin' terminology in the world of information technology. Yet it is an excellent choice of words to describe what enterprise IT—and by extension, organizations in general—should be working to achieve. Digital Transformation means: handling all the data types being found and created in the organizat...
