TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 06/24/14 -- Killbear Acquisition Corp. (TSX VENTURE: KBA.P) (the "Corporation"), a capital pool company listed on the TSX Venture Exchange Inc. (the "Exchange"), is pleased to announce that it has entered into a term sheet dated June 24, 2014 and a subscription agreement dated June 24, 2014 (the "Agreements") with Yangaroo Inc. ("Yangaroo"), a company listed on the Exchange under the symbol "YOO", providing for its participation in Yangaroo's proposed brokered private placement (the "Private Placement") which, upon completion, will constitute the Corporation's qualifying transaction pursuant to the policies of the Exchange (the "Qualifying Transaction").
Under the Agreements, the Corporation will purchase common shares in the capital of Yangaroo (the "Yangaroo Shares") at a price of $0.30 per Yangaroo Share with all of its available cash reserves after deducting the anticipated transaction costs related to the Qualifying Transaction which are currently estimated at approximately $60,000, for an aggregate consideration of approximately $300,000 and up to a maximum of $324,000 depending on the actual transaction costs required to complete the Qualifying Transaction.
Following the completion of the Private Placement, the Corporation will undertake the necessary steps to distribute the Yangaroo Shares on a pro rata basis to its shareholders (the "Distribution") and thereafter the Corporation intends to delist its common shares from the Exchange and commence a voluntary dissolution in accordance with Section 237 of the Business Corporations Act (Ontario) (the "Dissolution").
The Yangaroo Shares will be issued to the Corporation and its shareholders pursuant to applicable prospectus and registration exemptions under National Instrument 45-106. Subject to certain disclosure and regulatory requirements and to customary restrictions applicable to distributions of shares from "control persons", the Yangaroo Shares distributed pursuant to the Distribution may be resold in each province and territory in Canada, subject in certain circumstances, to the usual conditions that no unusual effort has been made to prepare the market or create demand for the Yangaroo Shares and that no extraordinary commission or consideration is paid in respect of any trade.
The Corporation intends to make the Private Placement and subsequent Distribution and Dissolution its proposed "Qualifying Transaction" pursuant to Policy 2.4 of the Exchange. Yangaroo does not anticipate any new Control Person (as such term is defined in Exchange policies) will be created in connection with the Private Placement.
The Qualifying Transaction is an arm's length transaction for the purposes of the Exchange.
It is proposed that a special meeting of shareholders of the Corporation will be held on or before August 14, 2014, or such other date as permissible by applicable securities laws (the "Meeting"), at which time the shareholders will be asked to vote for or to vote against or withhold from voting for, inter alia, resolutions approving the Private Placement, Distribution and Dissolution of the Corporation.
The Corporation and Yangaroo anticipate that the Corporation's purchase of Yangaroo Shares will occur as soon as practicable following approval of the Private Placement by the shareholders of the Corporation at the Meeting after which the Corporation will immediately commence the distribution of Yangaroo Shares and the Dissolution.

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...

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

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.

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...
