BURNABY, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/25/14 -- Naturally Splendid Enterprises (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: NSP)(FRANKFURT: 50N)(OTCQB: NSPDF) is pleased to announce that the Company has now received DTC approval. Naturally Splendid's common shares are now eligible for book-entry delivery and depository services of the Depository Trust Company. This will effectively facilitate electronic settlement for transfers of its common shares. The ability to have Naturally Splendid's shares trade electronically in the US provides greater convenience for investors and lowers the costs incurred in buying and selling shares. Benefits to Naturally Splendid shareholders as a result of becoming DTC approved include reducing the time for stock deposits and withdrawals into brokerage accounts as well as opening up access to trade Naturally Splendid shares electronically that was not available prior to DTC approval, creating a significantly larger potential investor base.
Naturally Splendid CEO Craig Goodwin states, "We are pleased to have now received DTC approval and excited that new potential investors who may have previously been unable to purchase Naturally Splendid shares will now have access to do so. With our shares now trading electronically, a much larger potential investor base can instantly benefit from greater liquidity and faster execution speeds. Companies that have been approved for DTC electronic transfers commonly experience higher trading volumes in their stock given the additional accessibility and availability of shares for trading."
Benefits of DTC eligibility
DTC is the largest securities depository in the world with most large U.S. broker-dealers and banks as participants. While there is no requirement that any security be held at DTC to trade, many brokerage firms and issuers want to take advantage of the efficiencies and costs benefits that DTC offers. Also, many stock exchanges require DTC-eligibility prior to listing of a security.
Throughout the lifecycle of a security, DTC helps boost efficiencies, reduce risk and lower costs for participants, issuers and investors. The benefits begin with the eligibility/underwriting process, which enables the initial distribution of a security offering to be made electronically to financial institutions that are DTC participants and ultimately to investors. Once a security becomes eligible, DTC, through its nominee Cede & Co., is the registered holder of the securities, routinely processing dividend and interest payments and managing the electronic "book-entry" transfer of interests in securities among participants. These participants are often holding and transferring interests in the securities at the direction of their customers, including ultimate beneficial owners.
If a reorganization such as a corporate merger or tender offer occurs, DTC handles the transfer of cash and stock to the appropriate investment bank or broker/dealer, which then passes it on to their investors. By maintaining custody of eligible securities, DTC eliminates the risk of a missed election on a corporate action, or a missed dividend payment.

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...

What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.
