About Quantum International Income Corp
QIIC is an Ontario corporation which was originally amalgamated on August 15, 1995. After engaging in several ventures over the subsequent decade, the Company divested itself of substantially all of its assets in February, 2005. The Company has traded on the NEX since March 16, 2005. Since 2005, the Company has had no active operations and its primary business has been to identify and evaluate businesses or assets with a view to completing a reactivation from the NEX pursuant to the policies of the Exchange.
On June 18, 2013, QIIC entered into a reorganization and investment agreement with Mr. Grant White, pursuant to which the Company agreed to: (i) appoint Mr. White as Chief Executive Officer; (ii) nominate new directors for election to the Company's board of directors; (iii) consolidate its issued and outstanding share capital on the basis of one (1) post-consolidation share for each ten (10) pre-consolidation shares; (iv) undertake to complete a non-brokered private placement of common shares and warrants of the Company; and (v) change its name from "E.G. Capital Inc." to "Quantum International Income Corp." (collectively, the "Reorganization"). The Reorganization was entered into in order to better position the Company to complete its reactivation from the NEX. Mr. White's appointment as CEO was effective on June 18, 2013; Mr. Manu Sekhri joined as President and a new slate of directors were elected at the annual and special meeting of the shareholders of QIIC held on November 21, 2013; the consolidation and name change became effective on March 13, 2014 and the Company completed the non-brokered private placement to raise aggregate gross proceeds of $1,160,000 on March 19, 2014.
As of the date hereof, there are 25,460,105 common shares of QIIC issued and outstanding, as well as 23,200,000 warrants to purchase common shares of QIIC at a price of $0.10 per common share at any time prior to March 19, 2015. As of the date hereof, no person owns, controls or directs 10% or more of the outstanding common shares of QIIC.
QIIC intends to seek opportunities to acquire and grow businesses in order to generate stable distributions for its shareholders, as well as to achieve overall capital appreciation. The Company will seek to acquire operating businesses with a proven track record, an opportunity for growth and whose management wishes to continue to operate the business going forward. The Company's investment approach will be to grow through the acquisition of "platform" businesses that are consistent with its business strategy and acquisition criteria and then to continue to build revenues and earnings within these businesses. Potential acquisition targets may be private or public companies in a variety of industries, thereby allowing for diversification. Acquisition of all or a majority of the ownership of each such business is preferred. Value will be created by seeking out high growth, high margin opportunities where the acquired businesses can maintain and develop the deep knowledge, expertise and understanding of their customers' needs required to deliver superior service and command higher pricing and margins than the competition.
This press release may contain forward-looking statements relating to the Corporation. Among the important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those indicated by such forward looking statements are competitive pressures, technical difficulties, market acceptance, changes in customer requirements, and general economic conditions, and other risks and uncertainties as described from time to time in Corporation's reports, registration statements and filings filed by the Corporation with securities regulatory authorities.

Data is an unusual currency; it is not restricted by the same transactional limitations as money or people. In fact, the more that you leverage your data across multiple business use cases, the more valuable it becomes to the organization. And the same can be said about the organization’s analytics. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Bill Schmarzo, CTO for the Big Data Practice at Dell EMC, introduced a methodology for capturing, enriching and sharing data (and analytics) across the organization...

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...

The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds. While there is a lot of spend in IT departments in virtualization, these aren’t yet translating into a true “cloud” experience within the enterprise.

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again. In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackIQ...
