Bullion Management Services Inc. Announces Proposed Merger of the BMG Gold Advantage Return BullionFund With the BMG Gold BullionFund

MARKHAM, ON -- (Marketwired) -- 06/24/14 -- Bullion Management Services Inc. (the "Manager") announced today a proposal to terminate the BMG Gold Advantage Return BullionFund (the "Fund") by way of a transfer of assets (the "Merger") to the BMG Gold BullionFund (the "Continuing Fund" and together with the Fund, the "Funds") on or around August 26, 2014 (the "Effective Date"). The Merger is subject to the approval of unitholders of the Fund (the "Unitholders") at the Meeting (defined below) as well as approval of the applicable regulatory authorities. If approved and implemented, the Merger will be effected on a taxable basis.

The independent review committee of the Funds has provided its decision that, in its opinion, the Merger provides a fair and reasonable result for each of the Funds.

If necessary approvals are not obtained, the Manager intends to terminate the Fund on or around the Effective Date.

The Merger

The Fund and the Continuing Fund have the same manager, substantially similar investment objectives and strategies, fee structures, and valuation procedures. The Manager expects that the implementation of the Merger will form a larger, open-ended mutual fund that is expected to result in potentially lower management expense ratio, economies of scale and cost synergies for the unitholders of the Funds.

The Manager intends to seek approval of Unitholders for the Merger at a special meeting of Unitholders duly called and held to consider the Merger and related matters, including changes to the declaration of trust governing the Funds, on or around August 22, 2014 (the "Meeting").

Unitholders should note the following in relation to the Merger:

  • The investment objectives, valuation procedures and fee structure of the Funds are substantially similar;
  • The Merger will be effected on a taxable basis; and
  • Unitholders of the Fund may choose, prior to the Merger, to surrender their units for redemption up to the close of business on August 25, 2014, the business day immediately before the Effective Date.

Unitholders of the Fund on the proposed record date, July 22, 2014, will be entitled to receive notice of and vote at the Meeting. They will also receive the management information circular (the "Circular") which will include the details about the Merger, including the differences between the Fund and the Continuing Fund. The Circular is expected to be mailed on or around July 29, 2014. The Circular will also be available on www.sedar.com and posted on the Manager's website. Unitholders are encouraged to read the Circular in its entirety and consult with their investment advisors regarding the Merger.

Subject to receipt of applicable approvals, the Merger is expected to be implemented on or around the Effective Date.

Unitholders of the Fund will also be sent a written notice 60 days before the Effective Date notifying them that the Fund will terminate on or around the Effective Date if the Merger is approved and implemented, and also that if the Merger is not approved, the Manager still intends to terminate the Fund on or around the Effective Date.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
An IoT product’s log files speak volumes about what’s happening with your products in the field, pinpointing current and potential issues, and enabling you to predict failures and save millions of dollars in inventory.

"We are the public cloud providers. We are currently providing 50% of the resources they need for doing e-commerce business in China and we are hosting about 60% of mobile gaming in China," explained Yi Zheng, CPO and VP of Engineering at CDS Global Cloud, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 19th Cloud Expo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...

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 ...
Financial Technology has become a topic of intense interest throughout the cloud developer and enterprise IT communities. Accordingly, attendees at the upcoming 20th Cloud Expo at the Javits Center in New York, June 6-8, 2017, will find fresh new content in a new track called FinTech.
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...

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 Soli...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
