CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/30/14 -- Mart Resources, Inc. (TSX VENTURE: MMT) ("Mart" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the declaration of a quarterly dividend of $0.015 (one and one-half cents) per common share. The dividend is designated as an eligible dividend for the purposes of the Income Tax Act (Canada) and will be paid on July 28, 2014 to shareholders of record at the close of business on July 18, 2014. The ex-dividend date is July 16, 2014.
Pursuant to the Company's dividend policy, the declaration of regular quarterly dividends is determined quarterly based upon Mart's cash flows, liquidity, capital expenditure budgets, earnings, financial condition and other factors as the Board of Directors may consider appropriate from time to time. In view of Mart's ongoing drilling program on the Umusadege field, additional capital required for the possible acquisition of a participating interest in a Nigerian oil mining lease, and uncertainty regarding timing of first oil through the Umugini Pipeline, Mart's Board of Directors have reduced the dividend this quarter to preserve cash to fund the capital needs of the Company's ongoing business and growth opportunities.
Share Dividend Plan and Enrollment
Mart's shareholders may receive dividend payments in the form of cash or common shares through the Company's recently adopted Share Dividend Program ("SDP"). Participation in the SDP is optional. Shareholders will continue to receive dividend payments in cash unless they chose to participate in the SDP. Shareholders wishing to participate in the SDP should contact their broker or intermediary or, in the case of registered shareholders, contact Mart's transfer agent, Computershare Trust Company of Canada or visit the Company's website at www.martersources.com to obtain the necessary enrollment forms. Enrollment is required by July 14, 2014 in order to participate in the SDP for the current dividend. Shareholders who enroll in the SDP will continue to receive shares until they terminate their enrollment as specified in the enrollment form.
The SDP provides the option for shareholders to receive dividends, as and when declared, in the form of common shares of Mart in lieu of receiving a cash dividend on the dividend payment date. Common shares issued under the SDP are issued at a five per cent discount to the prevailing market price as defined in the Company's SDP, with no broker fees or commissions. The SDP will generally be available to most shareholders and is expected to provide many shareholders with Canadian income tax treatment that is different from the income tax consequences applicable to cash dividends. Shareholders, wherever resident, are encouraged to consult their own tax or legal advisors regarding the tax consequences to them of receiving cash or share dividends.
Additional information on the SDP including the SDP Enrollment Form can be found at the Company's website at www.martresources.com or by contacting your financial institution or investment advisor. The availability of the SDP and the respective terms and conditions are subject to the discretion of Mart's management and Board of Directors.

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as...

The web app is agile. The REST API is agile. The testing and planning are agile. But alas, data infrastructures certainly are not. Once an application matures, changing the shape or indexing scheme of data often forces at best a top down planning exercise and at worst includes schema changes that force downtime. The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software organ...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, discussed why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices rathe...

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.

The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.
