Self Storage Group Adopts Stockholder Rights Plan

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 08/01/14 -- Self Storage Group, Inc. (formerly Global Income Fund, Inc.) (OTCQB: SELF) (the "Company") announced today that its Board of Directors, after careful consideration and based on the recommendation of a special committee comprised solely of the independent directors, by the unanimous vote of the directors present, adopted a stockholder rights plan (the "Plan"). This action has been taken in furtherance of implementing the Company's business proposal, approved by its stockholders, to change the Company's business from an investment company to an operating company that owns, operates, manages, acquires, develops and redevelops professionally managed self storage facilities and seeks to qualify as a real estate investment trust ("REIT") for federal tax purposes (the "Business Proposal"). In approving the Plan, the Board seeks to preserve the Company's ability to fully implement the Business Proposal and to discourage the accumulation of shares by persons or groups of persons to such an extent that concentrated ownership may adversely affect the Company's ability to deregister as an investment company and continue to qualify as a REIT for federal tax purposes.

Since stockholder approval of the Company's Business Proposal, which is fully described in the Company's proxy materials available at www.selfstoragegroupinc.com, the Company has taken numerous steps to implement the Business Proposal including, among other things, acquiring and operating self storage facilities, terminating its investment management agreement, converting to internal management, qualifying as a REIT for federal tax purposes, and applying to the Securities and Exchange Commission to deregister as an investment company. Until the Business Proposal is fully implemented, the Company's Board of Directors has the power to change or modify the Business Proposal if it concludes that doing so would be in the best interests of the Company and its stockholders.

The Company qualified for REIT tax treatment in 2013 and a key requirement that the Company must satisfy to continue to qualify as a REIT for federal tax purposes is that no more than 50% of the value of the Company's outstanding shares may be owned directly, indirectly, or constructively by five or fewer individuals (or certain entities). The accumulation of the Company's common stock by a person, or a related group of persons, could frustrate the expressed desire of the Company's stockholders to fully implement the Business Proposal by continuing to qualify as a REIT for federal tax purposes.

To implement the Plan, the Board of Directors declared a special dividend distribution of one non-transferrable right for each outstanding share of the Company's common stock, par value $.01 per share, to stockholders of record at the close of business today, August 1, 2014. Each right entitles the registered holder to purchase from the Company one share of its common stock, par value $.01 per share, subject to adjustment. The rights will be distributed as a non-taxable dividend and will expire at the close of business on November 28, 2014 unless earlier redeemed or exchanged by the Company. The rights will be evidenced by the underlying Company common stock and no separate rights certificates will presently be distributed.

Subject to certain exceptions in the rights agreement ("Rights Agreement"), the rights will become exercisable 10 days following a public announcement that a "person" (as defined in the Rights Agreement) or a group of affiliated or associated persons have acquired "beneficial ownership" (as defined in the Rights Agreement) of 19% or more of the outstanding shares of the Company's common stock. In this event, however, any person who "beneficially owns" (as defined in the Rights Agreement) more than 17% of the outstanding common shares of the Company's common stock will not be permitted to exercise any rights associated with common shares beneficially owned in excess of 17% of the outstanding common shares of the Company, and those additional rights will be deemed null and void. The Board of Directors may terminate the Plan at any time or redeem the rights, for $.01 per right, at any time before a person or a group of affiliated or associated persons beneficially owns 19% or more of the Company's common stock.

UNDER CERTAIN CIRCUMSTANCES, AS SET FORTH IN THE RIGHTS AGREEMENT, CERTAIN RIGHTS OWNED BY ANY PERSON WHO IS OR BECOMES AN ACQUIRING PERSON (AS DEFINED IN THE RIGHTS AGREEMENT) SHALL BECOME NULL AND VOID. YOU SHOULD OBTAIN, CAREFULLY READ, AND RETAIN A COPY OF THE RIGHTS AGREEMENT.

A copy of the rights agreement specifying the terms and conditions of the rights is available on the Company's website at www.selfstoragegroupinc.com and will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Additional details regarding the Plan will be outlined in a summary to be mailed to all stockholders following the record date.

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud?

How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...
Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
