VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/14/14 -- Kazax Minerals Inc. ("Kazax" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:KZX) Further to the Company's news release of July 7, 2014, the Company is pleased to announce it has closed its previously announced non-brokered private placement (the "Private Placement") of convertible unsecured non-interest bearing debentures (the "Debentures") for aggregate proceeds of C$3,200,000 (the "Aggregate Proceeds"). The Private Placement is subject to final approval by the TSX Venture Exchange.
The Debentures will mature on and become payable on July 14, 2017 (the "Maturity Date") and are direct, unsecured obligations of the Company, ranking equally with all other unsecured indebtedness of the Company. Upon receipt of (i) all necessary approvals from the Kazakh Ministry of Industry and New Technologies; and (ii) approval by the requisite majority of shareholders of the Company on or before the Maturity Date for the Debentures, the principal amount of the Debentures will automatically be converted into units of the Company (the "Units"); provided, however, (iii) that the Debentures will only be converted into Units where such conversion would not result in a reduction in the existing percentage of common shares of the Company held by persons other than insiders or their associates and affiliates and not subject to resale restrictions.
The conversion of the Debentures into Units shall be at a conversion price of: (i) $0.05 per Unit if conversion occurs within the first year of issuance; and (ii) $0.10 per Unit if conversion occurs within the following two years.
Each Unit will be comprised of one common share (a "Share") of the Company and one-half of one share purchase warrant, with each whole warrant (a "Warrant") exercisable to purchase one additional common share of the Company (a "Warrant Share") until July 14, 2017 at an exercise price of $0.10. In the event that the closing price of the common shares of the Company on the Exchange is equal to or exceeds $1.00 for a period of 10 consecutive trading days (the "Acceleration Event"), the Warrants will expire on the date which is 90 calendar days after the Company provides notice that the Acceleration Event has occurred.
The Debentures, and any Shares, Warrants and Warrant Shares issued upon conversion of the Debentures or exercise of the Warrants, will be subject to a hold period expiring November 15, 2014.
The proceeds of the Private Placement will be used for general working capital purposes.
Under the Private Placement, Mr. Moshtagh Moshtaghi, of 21 Manor House Drive, London England, acquired ownership of Debentures in the principal amount of $1,600,000 (representing 50% of the Debentures issued pursuant to the Private Placement).

While this has unlocked huge opportunities to accelerate the deployment of new capabilities or increase economic efficiencies within an organization, i...

You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”
