Corona Announces TSX Approval of Normal Course Issuer Bid

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 07/14/14 -- Corona Gold Corporation ("Corona") (TSX: CRG) announces that it has received acceptance from the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") of its Notice of Intention to make a Normal Course Issuer Bid to purchase its outstanding common shares from time to time in accordance with the normal course issuer bid procedures of the TSX and applicable Canadian securities laws. Its current normal course issuer bid expires on July 15, 2014. Over the past 12-months, Corona did not purchase any shares under such bid.

Pursuant to the issuer bid, Corona may purchase for cancellation up to 1,219,078 of its outstanding common shares during the 12-month period commencing July 16, 2014 and ending July 15, 2015. The total aggregate number of common shares which Corona may purchase pursuant to the issuer bid represents approximately 5.7% of the 21,411,901 issued and outstanding common shares of Corona as at July 7, 2014 being 10% of the "public float" as such term is defined in TSX policies.

The price which Corona will pay for any common shares purchased under the normal course issuer bid will be the market price at the time of such purchase. All purchases of common shares by Corona will be made through the facilities of TSX or other eligible designated exchanges and alternative trading platforms.

Other than as otherwise permitted pursuant to once-a-week block purchases in accordance with TSX rules, Corona may purchase up to 1,873 common shares per day, which represents approximately 25% of the Corona's average daily trading volume for the six calendar months prior to July 2014 (being 7,493 common shares).

Corona believes that its common shares currently trade in a price range that does not adequately reflect their underlying value based on Corona's business and strong financial position. As a result, depending upon future price movements and other factors, Corona believes that its outstanding common shares represent an attractive investment and a desirable use of a portion of its corporate funds.

From time to time, when Corona does not possess material non-public information about itself or its securities, it may enter into a pre-defined automatic purchase plan with its broker to allow for the repurchase of shares at times when Corona ordinarily would not be active in the market due to its own internal trading blackout periods, insider trading rules or otherwise, as applicable. Any such plans entered into with Corona's broker will be adopted in accordance with applicable Canadian securities laws and TSX policies.

DevOps theory promotes a culture of continuous improvement built on collaboration, empowerment, systems thinking, and feedback loops. But how do you collaborate effectively across the traditional silos? How can you make decisions without system-wide visibility? How can you see the whole system when it is spread across teams and locations? How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?

Enterprises have been using both Big Data and virtualization for years. Until recently, however, most enterprises have not combined the two. Big Data's demands for higher levels of performance, the ability to control quality-of-service (QoS), and the ability to adhere to SLAs have kept it on bare metal, apart from the modern data center cloud. With recent technology innovations, we've seen the advantages of bare metal erode to such a degree that the enhanced flexibility and reduced costs that cl...
