("Sulliden") (TSX:SUE)(LMA:SUE)(OTCQX:SDDDF) have completed the previously announced plan of arrangement (the "Arrangement"), pursuant to which Rio Alto acquired all of the issued and outstanding common shares of Sulliden ("Sulliden Shares"). As of today, and including the 151,694,886 Rio Alto common shares issued as consideration under the Arrangement, Rio Alto has 328,802,568 common shares issued and outstanding. No Rio Alto common shares were issued under the Arrangement in respect of the 26,966,292 Sulliden Shares that were held by Rio Alto immediately prior to the completion of the Arrangement. Please refer to the joint press release of Rio Alto and Sulliden dated May 28, 2014 for additional information regarding these Sulliden Shares. An additional 20,905,870 Rio Alto common shares have been reserved for issuance in connection with new Rio Alto options issued to the former option holders of Sulliden and in connection with the Rio Alto common shares that may be issued upon the exercise of existing warrants to purchase Sulliden common shares.

In connection with the Arrangement, two Sulliden nominees joined the Board of Directors of Rio Alto, being Mr. Peter Tagliamonte, the Co-Chairman and CEO of Sulliden prior to the Arrangement and Bruce Humphrey, a Director of Sulliden prior to the Arrangement.

Alex Black, President and Chief Executive Officer of Rio Alto, stated, "We are very excited about the prospects of Rio Alto and the value proposition we are able to deliver to our shareholders based on strong existing gold production at La Arena and future gold production at Shahuindo. The similarities and proximity of Shahuindo to our La Arena mine allow us to leverage the core skills of our management and operating teams and with the transaction now complete, we are eager to focus our efforts on increasing oxide reserves at La Arena and building Shahuindo. We have begun the process of integrating Sulliden's operations with our own and continue to identify value generative opportunities as we prepare to deliver on our commitment of gold production at Shahuindo by late 2015 or early 2016."

Former Sulliden shareholders were also issued 31,590,893 common shares in Sulliden Mining Capital Inc. ("SpinCo") that are expected to commence trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange on or about August 11, 2014 under the ticker symbol "SMC". Pursuant to the Arrangement, SpinCo assumed Sulliden's interests in the East Sullivan property near the town of Val D'Or in Quebec.

It is expected that Sulliden's shares will cease trading and will be delisted from the TSX, BVL and the OTCQX in approximately 2-3 business days in accordance with the rules of the TSX, BVL and OTCQX.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
