VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/08/14 -- Strategic Metals Ltd. ("Strategic" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:SMD) announces that it has approved the adoption of a new shareholder rights plan (the "new rights plan"), to be effective upon the termination of the existing shareholder rights plan at Strategic's 2014 annual general meeting, scheduled to be held on July 11, 2014. The new rights plan has been designed to encourage the fair and equal treatment of shareholders in connection with any takeover bid for Strategic's outstanding securities, and will provide the board of directors with additional time to assess the advantages and disadvantages of any particular offer, and to seek out alternative proposals in the best interests of all shareholders. The new rights plan will essentially be a continuation of the shareholder rights plan adopted by Strategic on January 3, 2012, as ratified by its shareholders at the annual general and special meeting held on June 25, 2012.
Strategic will not be adopting the new rights plan in response to any specific proposal to acquire control of its outstanding securities. The new rights plan will be similar to plans adopted by other Canadian companies and ratified by their shareholders. It is not the intention of the new rights plan to entrench management or prevent a change of control of Strategic to the detriment of shareholders. The new rights plan will not apply to takeover bids that meet certain requirements including that the bid be made by way of a takeover bid circular and be left open for at least 60 days so as to ensure that shareholders will have an adequate opportunity to assess the merits of any such bid.
The new rights plan will be subject to TSX Venture Exchange acceptance and to Strategic obtaining ratification thereof at an annual general meeting of shareholders to be held within six months - in that regard, said shareholder ratification will be sought at Strategic's 2014 annual general meeting. If ratified, the new rights plan will have an initial term which will expire at Strategic's annual general meeting of shareholders to be held in 2017; the new rights plan may also be reconfirmed and extended at that annual general meeting and at every third annual general meeting thereafter. If ratified as disclosed above, a copy of the new rights plan will be available for viewing on SEDAR and may also be obtained from Strategic subsequent to its 2014 annual general meeting of shareholders.

Tricky charts and visually deceptive graphs often make a case for the impact IT performance has on business. The debate isn't around the obvious; of course, IT performance metrics like website load time influence business metrics such as conversions and revenue. Rather, this presentation will explore various data analysis concepts to understand how, and how not to, assert such correlations. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Leo Vasiliou, Director of Web Performance Engineering at Catchpoint Sys...

Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, discussed the impact of technology on identity. Sho...

There are 66 million network cameras capturing terabytes of data. How did factories in Japan improve physical security at the facilities and improve employee productivity? Edge Computing reduces possible kilobytes of data collected per second to only a few kilobytes of data transmitted to the public cloud every day. Data is aggregated and analyzed close to sensors so only intelligent results need to be transmitted to the cloud. Non-essential data is recycled to optimize storage.
