Tuckamore Acknowledges Receipt of Financing Proposal

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 07/29/14 -- Tuckamore Capital Management Inc. (TSX: TX)(TSX: TX.DB.B) ("Tuckamore" or the "Company") acknowledges that it has received a proposal to provide equity financing from Access Holdings Management Company LLC ("Access"). The Company is in the process of reviewing the proposal with its legal and financial advisors.

On Friday, July 25, 2014, Tuckamore was pleased to announce that, among other things, it had entered into a subscription agreement (the "Placement Agreement") with Orange Capital Master I, Ltd. ("Orange Capital") in respect of a $12.5 million private placement. Tuckamore would like to clarify the most recent incorrect statements press released by Access:


--  Contrary to Access' statements, Orange Capital will pay no less than
    $0.75 per share for shares sold to it under the Placement Agreement.

--  Orange Capital has agreed to assist Tuckamore in amending, extending or
    refinancing the Company's 8% secured debentures outstanding due March
    2016. The Company disclosed the potential for a refinancing fee
    believing that transparency with its shareholders is consistent with
    best practices of corporate governance. Contrary to Access' suggestion,
    there is no connection between the private placement and the payment of
    any earned refinancing fee nor is there any contractual obligation by
    the Company to complete a refinancing with Orange Capital. Any
    prospective fee earned by Orange Capital in connection therewith will
    depend entirely on the future value provided by Orange Capital and is
    contingent on a successful debt refinancing, as determined by the
    independent members of the Company's reconstituted Board of Directors.

--  Finally, contrary to Access's allegations, only Birch Hill will receive
    reimbursement for expenses in connection with the previously terminated
    arrangement, no member of management will receive a reimbursement for
    expenses.

Tuckamore will continue to consult with and update shareholders in due course.

Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments. The networking architecture of the solution isolates the network traffic into different network planes (e.g., management, control, and media). This naturally makes support for multiple interfaces in container orchestration engines an indispensable requirement.

Any startup has to have a clear go –to-market strategy from the beginning. Similarly, any data science project has to have a go to production strategy from its first days, so it could go beyond proof-of-concept. Machine learning and artificial intelligence in production would result in hundreds of training pipelines and machine learning models that are continuously revised by teams of data scientists and seamlessly connected with web applications for tenants and users.
