JACKSONVILLE, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 06/30/14 -- Quasar Aerospace Industries, Inc. (OTC Pink: QASP) (PINKSHEETS: QASP) ("Quasar" or "the Company")
Quasar Aerospace Industries, Inc. previously announced that it entered into a Definitive Agreement under which Quasar through its subsidiary, Green Energy Investments, Inc. acquires Hydro-Grow Supply, Inc., a Colorado based hydroponic grow store. The transaction provides a solid platform to allow us to maximize the grow store's strength to create a unique competitor in the marketplace with capabilities of being a leading service provider to the legal and medical marijuana industry nationwide.
Hydro-Grow possesses a high-quality customer base, significant revenue, a large selection of products, equipment and grow supplies. It also has the ability to become the best-in-class nationwide hydroponic grow store with expansion and growth being enabled by this transaction. The grow store currently does little to no advertising, therefore, Quasar is working on creating a new web presence to significantly increase the marketing and sales being generated by the grow store. Quasar is pursuing an E-Commerce strategy with an expert in the field to see that our grow store is able to increase its visibility as well as its revenues. The grow store's website will provide an online shopping cart to avail itself an additional method to sell grow supplies and equipment to customers nationwide. As the E-Commerce strategy is put into place details in reference to the projected increase in revenues will be released to the public. Quasar is thrilled about being able to be part of the legal and medical marijuana industry as promised.
New developments in relation to this acquisition continue to be pursued for implementation which brings great excitement to the future of Quasar. Quasar will be unleashing a branding to the marketplace to become a known name in the industry at the same time capturing additional revenues through the sale of branding merchandise. The merchandise will be available to purchase in stores as well as online. Quasar is aligning with grow specialists which will allow us to host Grow Seminars throughout the nation. New developments are on the horizon each day including talking to other providers in the legal and medical marijuana industry. Quasar intends for its grow stores to be one of the largest grow store operations in nation. We want to be front runners and plan to capture the marijuana industries business through dispensaries and all other legal and registered growers for all their grow store supply and equipment needs. We are entering the marijuana industry as it is just beginning to expand throughout the country and we intend to be a pinnacle service provider to the market. The grow store will be adding new services to further increase its revenues such as offering installation. Quasar is conducting a market analysis and seeking out the best location to open its second grow store in the near future. The inventory obtained with this acquisition shall allow this to occur rapidly. Additionally, Quasar plans on providing community out-reach programs to give back to the community.
The acquisition is for one hundred percent (100%) of the assets of Hydro-Grow for the sum of two hundred and fifty thousand dollars ($250,000). Quasar believes that this is an amazing opportunity wherein Quasar shall retain full control and realize all the revenues generated by the grow store and related ventures. Included in this acquisition is approximately one hundred and sixty thousand ($160,000) worth of inventory valued at cost as well as a 20ft. steel storage container and all other tangible assets. Quasar believes this acquisition will yield an above market return on investments "as-is" but an even greater return as it implements a branding, marketing and distribution strategy.
Quasar has put a manager in place that is currently undergoing thirty (30) days of training at the grow store to prepare for taking over the store operation. In addition, contracts with vendors, suppliers, and distributors are being finalized and all other pertinent contracts, leases, licenses and agreements are being completed in preparation for the change in ownership.
Quasar determined that ownership of one hundred (100%) of the grow store became a necessity as our business plan provides that the acquisition of a grow store was our first step. All future developments will be based on this ownership. The branding, second and future stores and the creation of our cultivation centers nationwide, Quasar needed to have full control to move forward without any hindrance and to allow Quasar to recognize the revenues that will be generated. Each future development is based on this initial acquisition: the second store will utilize the resources, platform and inventory provide by this acquisition; the branding will be under our control and without any interference from a third party; and the cultivation centers will utilize the inventory of the grow store for its build out. In order to allow Quasar to grow according to plan and maximize its revenues having majority authority in all marketing, distribution, and developments could not be overlooked.
An upcoming press release will be issued with financial information for Hydro-Grow including historical revenues and a final tally of assets acquired. Until the new website is complete, photos of the Hydro-Grow have been posted on Quasar's Facebook and Twitter accounts and corporate updates will be posted through these sources as well.
Quasar has filed its amended first quarter financials with OTC Markets and has returned to Pink current information status. We will update the public once an auditor has been selected for moving forward with uplisting.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Sum...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
