OTTAWA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 07/30/14 -- International Datacasting Corporation ("IDC" or the "Corporation") (TSX:IDC), a global leader in digital content distribution solutions for the world's premiere broadcasters, today announced that the completion of its previously announced non-brokered private placement (the "Private Placement") of Common Shares for gross proceeds of $394,325. The proceeds of the Private Placement will be used to provide working capital to fund IDC's operations.
The subscribers include Christopher Van Staveren (a director and the Chairman of the Board), Eric Apps (a director), David Charron (a director), David Smith (a director), Doug Lowther (a director and President and Chief Executive Officer), Chris Barrett (Vice-President, Engineering and Operations), Steven Archambault (Chief Financial Officer), Steeve Huin (Vice-President, Products and Services) and Gary Carter (Vice-President and Chief Technology Officer), who purchased an aggregate of approximately $299,000 worth of Common Shares pursuant to the Private Placement. The remaining approximately $95,000 worth of Common Shares issued pursuant to the Private Placement was issued to subscribers who are employees of the Corporation and one additional individual who will be joining the Corporation as an employee in the near term.
4,281,487 Common Shares were issued pursuant to the Private Placement at a price of $0.0921, being the five day volume weighted average (VWAP) of the Common Shares determined as of July 15, 2014 (the day IDC applied to the Toronto Stock Exchange for conditional approval of the Private Placement).
Each of Messrs. Van Staveren, Apps, Charron, Smith, Lowther, Barrett, Archambault, Huin and Carter are "related parties" of IDC for the purposes of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"). Other than improving IDC's working capital position and increasing the number of Common Shares held by directors, officers and employees, the Private Placement is not expected to have any effect on IDC's business and affairs. The Private Placement is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 since the up to $299,000 worth of Common Shares to be issued to related parties did not exceed 25% of IDC's market capitalization at the time the related parties agreed to participate in the Private Placement.
Prior to the completion of the Private Placement, the "related parties" of IDC owned an aggregate of 2.7% of IDC's 58,506,290 then issued and outstanding Common Shares (not including Common Shares issuable on the exercise of outstanding options or in settlement of restricted share units). Taking into account the Common Shares issued pursuant to Private Placement, the "related parties" own an aggregate of 7.7% of the Corporation's issued and outstanding Common Shares. In addition, an aggregate of 3,244,570 Common Shares have been issued to insiders of the Corporation pursuant to the Private Placement which amounts to approximately 5.5% of the Corporation's issued and outstanding Shares prior to the completion of the Private Placement.
Mr. Doug Lowther, International Datacasting Corporation's President and CEO, said "We are pleased to confirm the successful closing of the placement that we announced earlier this month. These funds are expected to provide additional flexibility to secure potential large orders in the second half of Fiscal 2015, while minimizing dilution to existing shareholders which would result from a larger equity offering."
A material change report with respect to the Private Placement has been filed under the Corporation's profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com. A material change report was not filed prior to the date of the closing of the Private Placement as it was not practicable to do so given the timing of the application to the TSX for approval of the Private Placement and the date of the conditional approval of the TSX for the Private Placement. All material information with respect to the Private Placement was previously disclosed in the press release of IDC dated July 17, 2014, which was the date that the TSX conditional approved the Private Placement.

As pervasive as cloud technology is -- and as persuasive as the arguments are for using it -- the cloud has its limits. Some companies will always have security concerns about storing data in the cloud and certain high-transaction applications will always be better suited for on-premises storage. Those statements were among the bottom-line takeaways delivered at Cloud Expo this week, a three day, bi-annual event focused on cloud technologies, adoption and associated challenges.

With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle. But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them? More of the data will need to be handled at - or closer to - the devices themselves.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

Building a cross-cloud operational model can be a daunting task.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm. In his Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, will explore t...
