Ontario Court of Appeal Rules in Favour of Unique Broadband Systems, Inc.

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 07/10/14 -- In its previous press releases dated May 6, 2014, November 4, 2013 and May 22, 2013, Unique Broadband Systems, Inc. ("UBS" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: UBS.H) announced that (i) certain, but not all, of the claims of Jolian Investments Limited ("Jolian") and Mr. Gerald McGoey, in the aggregate approximate amount of $9.5 million, were disallowed in connection with the Company's ongoing CCAA proceedings, (ii) UBS was granted leave to appeal the judgment of the Honourable Madam Justice Mesbur in which she found that, pursuant to its services agreement with UBS (the "Jolian MSA"), Jolian was entitled to an enhanced severance as a result of the termination of its contract with UBS, which Jolian calculated to be an amount in excess of $4 million, and (iii) the Jolian parties brought a cross-appeal in respect of Justice Mesbur's decision disallowing their claim for payment of the cancellation of the Company's share appreciation rights plan and deferred bonus, and indemnification of legal fees and expenses.

The appeal and cross-appeal was heard on June 17, 2014.

The Company is pleased to report that the Court of Appeal released its decision today granting the Company's appeal and dismissing the Jolian parties' cross-appeal. The Court of Appeal upheld the Trial Judge's findings that McGoey breached his fiduciary duties owed to the Company and shareholders and held that under the correct interpretation of the Jolian MSA, Jolian is not entitled to receive any enhanced severance as a result of McGoey's wrongful conduct. As a result, the Jolian parties have been ordered to disgorge $200,000 that was advanced to the Jolian parties before McGoey was removed from the Company's board by shareholders and to pay the costs of the trial and the appeal.

The Court of Appeal decision is a vindication of the Company's opposition to the Jolian parties' claims at trial and its appeal of the trial decision.

A copy of the Court of Appeal decision and other information pertaining to the CCAA claims process can be found on the monitor's website at www.duffandphelps.com/restructuringcases under the UBS link.

We all know that end users experience the Internet primarily with mobile devices.

One of the biggest challenges with adopting a DevOps mentality is: new applications are easily adapted to cloud-native, microservice-based, or containerized architectures - they can be built for them - but old applications need complex refactoring. On the other hand, these new technologies can require relearning or adapting new, oftentimes more complex, methodologies and tools to be ready for production.

Enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than most of us in security expected. CIOs are going from 0 to 100 in cloud adoption and leaving security teams in the dust. Once cloud is part of an enterprise stack, it’s unclear who has responsibility for the protection of applications, services, and data. When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...

Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era.

Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...
