CHC Realty Capital Corp. Announces Property Acquisitions and Private Placement

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 07/03/14 -- CHC Realty Capital Corp. ("CHC" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:CHC) is pleased to announce that it has entered into conditional agreements to complete three acquisitions of student housing properties located in Windsor, Ontario and Trois-Rivieres, Quebec from three different arm's length vendors. The acquisitions are subject to certain conditions, including the completion of due diligence and financing arrangements to the satisfaction of the Company, and the receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV").

The first acquisition consists of a property located in Windsor, Ontario, approximately 0.75 km from the University of Windsor, and having 117 beds in 87 student apartments in two buildings. The purchase price for the property is $5.9 million, subject to adjustments. The Company has paid the vendor a $100,000 initial refundable deposit in respect of the acquisition, which will become non-refundable (subject to certain exceptions) upon the removal of CHC's due diligence condition, and at which time CHC will pay the vendor a second $200,000 non-refundable (subject to certain exceptions) deposit.

The second acquisition consists of a property located in Windsor, Ontario, approximately 0.8 km from the University of Windsor, and having 51 beds in 32 student apartments in one building. The purchase price for the property is $1.6 million, subject to adjustments. The Company has paid the vendor a $50,000 initial refundable deposit in respect of the acquisition, which will become non-refundable (subject to certain exceptions) upon the removal of CHC's due diligence condition, and at which time CHC will pay the vendor a second $75,000 non-refundable (subject to certain exceptions) deposit.

The third acquisition consists of a property located in Trois-Rivieres, Quebec, on the campus of the Universite du Quebec a Trois-Rivieres, and having 306 beds in 77 student apartments in six buildings. The purchase price for the property is $5.5 million, subject to adjustments. The Company has paid the vendor a $75,000 initial refundable deposit in respect of the acquisition, which will become non-refundable (subject to certain exceptions) upon the removal of CHC's due diligence condition, and at which time CHC will pay the vendor a second $400,000 non-refundable (subject to certain exceptions) deposit. CHC has also paid the vendor a $25,000 initial non-refundable deposit.

In connection with the acquisitions, CHC also announces that it intends to complete a non-brokered private placement to raise approximately $8.0 million through the issuance of subscription receipts at a price to be determined in the context of the market. The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the private placement, together with mortgage financing on the properties, to complete the acquisitions of the Windsor, Ontario and Trois-Rivieres, Quebec properties, and for general corporate purposes. On closing, the proceeds from the private placement, less an amount equal to the second deposits to be paid to the vendors in connection with the acquisitions, will be deposited in escrow with a third party arm's length escrow agent pending completion of the acquisitions. Immediately prior to the completion of the acquisitions, the funds held in escrow will be released to CHC and each subscription receipt will automatically convert into one common share of the Company without payment of additional consideration. If the escrow release conditions are not satisfied on or before October 31, 2014, the proceeds will be returned to the subscribers. In addition, if not all of the acquisitions are to be completed, the funds required for any acquisitions which are not to be completed will be returned to the subscribers.

The subscription receipts will be offered by way of private placement in all of the provinces of Canada, and in jurisdictions outside of Canada provided that no prospectus filing or comparable obligation arises in such jurisdictions. Pursuant to applicable Canadian securities laws, all securities issued pursuant to the private placement will be subject to a statutory hold period expiring on date that is four months and a date from the day of closing of the private placement.

The private placement is expected to close on or about July 31, 2014. Closing is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary approvals including the approval of the TSXV.

The securities described herein have not been registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States unless registered under the Act or unless an exemption from registration is available.

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...
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon.

Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value.

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...
More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development.

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.
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself?
