VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/06/14 -- Spearmint Resources Inc. (the "Company" or "Spearmint") (TSX VENTURE:SRJ) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an arrangement agreement (the "Arrangement Agreement") with Sheslay Mining Inc. ("Spinco"), a private British Columbia company in which the Company currently holds a nominal interest. The Company also wishes to announce that it has entered into a non-binding letter of intent (the "LOI") with Alliance Growers Corp. ("Alliance"), a private British Columbia company.
Pursuant to the Arrangement Agreement, the Company has agreed to transfer $20,000 cash to Spinco in consideration for the issuance of 800,000 common shares of Spinco (or 24.2%) and to distribute these common shares to the Company's shareholders on a pro-rata basis pursuant to a plan of arrangement under the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia) (the "Plan of Arrangement").
The Company will seek approval of the Plan of Arrangement at an annual and special general meeting of its shareholders to be held on September 8, 2014 (the "Meeting"). Further information regarding the Arrangement Agreement, the Plan of Arrangement and the LOI will be set forth in the notice of meeting and information circular to be prepared in connection with the Meeting. Copies of the Arrangement Agreement and LOI will also be filed on SEDAR.
Should the Plan of Arrangement receive approval at the Meeting, it is anticipated that the Plan of Arrangement will be made effective shortly thereafter. Upon completion of the Plan of Arrangement, Spinco will become a reporting issuer in British Columbia and Alberta. Upon completion of the Plan of Arrangement, it is intended that Spinco will enter into a definitive agreement to acquire a business. Completion of the Plan of Arrangement is subject to certain conditions, including shareholder approval, the approval of the Supreme Court of British Columbia and the TSX Venture Exchange.
Should the Plan of Arrangement be implemented, it is anticipated that shareholders of the Company will:
-- retain their current interest in the Company; and -- obtain a 24.2% interest in Spinco, which will be a reporting issuer in British Columbia and Alberta and will have approximately $20,000 in cash to acquire a business.
The directors of the Company have unanimously concluded that the Arrangement is in the best interests of the Company and fair to all shareholders of the Company.
The LOI contemplates that subsequent to and subject to completion of the Plan of Arrangement, Spinco and Alliance anticipate entering into a definitive agreement (the "Definitive Agreement"), whereby Spinco will pursue a transaction involving a potential business combination of Spinco and Alliance (the "Transaction"). The entering into of the Definitive Agreement remains subject to a number of conditions, including completion of satisfactory financial, legal and business due diligence in respect of Alliance and finalization of all key terms. Should Spinco and Alliance enter into the Definitive Agreement, the Transaction would remain subject to a number of further conditions. The Company and Alliance are at arm's length.
On behalf of the board of directors of
SPEARMINT RESOURCES INC.

There are 66 million network cameras capturing terabytes of data. How did factories in Japan improve physical security at the facilities and improve employee productivity? Edge Computing reduces possible kilobytes of data collected per second to only a few kilobytes of data transmitted to the public cloud every day. Data is aggregated and analyzed close to sensors so only intelligent results need to be transmitted to the cloud. Non-essential data is recycled to optimize storage.

Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
