Ivanhoe Energy to Proceed with 7:1 Share Consolidation to Regain Compliance with NASDAQ Listing Requirements

CALGARY, Aug. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - Ivanhoe Energy (TSX: IE) (NASDAQ: IVAN)  announced today that it will proceed with the share consolidation as proposed in the Management Proxy Circular and approved at the Company's special meeting of shareholders on Wednesday August 13, 2014.  Shareholders holding 51% of the Company's outstanding common shares attended the meeting in person or by proxy and 82% of the votes cast were in favour of the resolution. The Company's Board of Directors has selected a share consolidation ratio of one new common share for every seven existing common shares.

The consolidation of the Company's common shares is intended to establish the basis for the shares to trade above $1.00, as per the listing requirements of the NASDAQ Stock Market ("NASDAQ").  Taking this step will support the Company's efforts to maintain market access and trading liquidity of current and future shareholders who trade on the NASDAQ exchange. 

The consolidation will reduce the number of outstanding common shares from approximately 114.8 million to approximately 16.4 million.  Proportionate adjustments will be made to the Company's outstanding convertible debentures, stock options and restricted share units.  No fractional common shares will be issued pursuant to the consolidation and any fractional shares that would have otherwise been issued will be rounded down or up to the nearest whole number.

The Company will be seeking the final approval from the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") to effect the consolidation and has provided notification of the consolidation to NASDAQ.  Subject to final confirmation by TSX and NASDAQ, it is expected that the post-consolidation common shares will begin trading on each of NASDAQ and TSX at the opening of markets on August 18, 2014 under its current NASDAQ and TSX trading symbols, "IVAN" and "IE", respectively.

Letters of transmittal with respect to the share consolidation are being mailed to the Company's registered shareholders.  All registered shareholders will be required to send their share certificates representing pre-consolidation common shares, along with a properly executed letter of transmittal, to the Company's registrar and transfer agent, CST Trust Company ("CST"), in accordance with the instructions provided in the letter of transmittal.  All registered shareholders who submit to CST a completed letter of transmittal, along with their respective certificates representing pre-consolidation common shares, will receive in exchange new certificates representing their post-consolidation common shares.  Shareholders who hold their common shares through a broker, investment dealer, bank, trust company or other nominee or intermediary should contact that nominee or intermediary for assistance in depositing their common shares in connection with the share consolidation.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
