First Bauxite Corporation Announces Filing of Third Quarter 2016 Financial Statements and MD&A and Amended and Restated First Quarter and Second Quarter 2016 Financial Statements and MD&A's

NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA -- (Marketwired) -- 11/29/16 -- First Bauxite Corporation (TSX VENTURE: FBX)(FRANKFURT: FBI)(BERLIN: FBI) ("First Bauxite" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has filed its unaudited quarterly financial statements and management's discussion and analysis for the period ended September 30, 2016. Additionally, the Company announces that it has filed amended and restated unaudited interim financial statements and management's discussion and analysis for the three month period ended March 31, 2016 ("Q1") and for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2016 ("Q2"). All filings referenced above are available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com and on the Company's website at www.firstbauxite.com.

The Company recently became aware of an inadvertent error in the consolidation process used in compiling the Q1 financial statements. The error resulted in the Company including the operating results from one of the Company's subsidiaries, Guyana Industrial Minerals Incorporated, for the period October 1, 2015 through March 31, 2016 instead of from the period from January 1, 2016 through March 31, 2016. Additionally, the foreign exchange gain or loss for the period ending March 31, 2016 and its impact on other comprehensive income was calculated using an incorrect exchange rate. Both errors were carried forward into the Q2 six month operating results. The Company has taken the necessary actions to remediate the control deficiency. The financial statements and related MD&As have been amended to eliminate the previous errors.

These corrections resulted in adjustments to the Company's Condensed Consolidated Interim Statements of Loss and Comprehensive Loss as follows:

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Predictive analytics tools monitor, report, and troubleshoot in order to make proactive decisions about the health, performance, and utilization of storage.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs.

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
Extracting business value from Internet of Things (IoT) data doesn’t happen overnight.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy.
Businesses and business units of all sizes can benefit from cloud computing, but many don't want the cost, performance and security concerns of public cloud nor the complexity of building their own private clouds.
