Greenland Resources Updates on Malmbjerg

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES WIRE SERVICES OR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

TORONTO, May 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Greenland Resources Inc. (“Greenland Resources” or the “Company”) wishes to announce that it has engaged several engineering firms to investigate four alternatives to the Wardrop 2008 feasibility study (“2008 FS”), with the aim to improve project economics and reduce the construction timing. The most significant change to the 2008 FS is to construct the ore processing plant and ancillary plant site infrastructure facilities at an overseas shipyard on barges and locate the barges at suitable constructed sites at either the North or South access route tidewater locations.

The four alternative operating scenarios are described below and consider two well established mining methods (open pit and underground block cave) with two different access routes to transport ore from the deposit to the tidewater ore processing facility. The two access routes under consideration are the North access route with a distance of 25 km and South access route of 85 km.

  1. Open pit mining option – South access route

Conventional open pit mining operation with an underground crushing and grinding chamber to pulverize the ore for hydraulic transport to the south tidewater processing plant. Surface maintenance / warehouse and administration structures will be constructed near the mining operation to complete mobile equipment maintenance and manage operations. This scenario requires the construction of an all-weather gravel airstrip suitable for Boeing 737-800 freight / passenger combo (“Combo”) aircraft and establishment of an appropriate tailings disposal site.

  1. Open pit mining option – North access route

Open pit mining operation as presented in Option #1, with an ore transport pipeline to the tidewater processing plant 25 km to the North through an 11 km tunnel. Similar surface structures required for Option #1 will be applicable for Option #2. This scenario is attractive as there is already an operating government-maintained airstrip suitable for Boeing 737-800 Combo aircraft and an appropriate natural tailings disposal site.

  1. Underground mining option – South access route

Block cave mining operation with an underground crushing and grinding chamber to pulverize the ore for hydraulic transport to the south tidewater processing plant, plant site and infrastructure along the same routing as Option #1 less surface environmental disturbance will be generated by the underground mining option as compared to the open pit option.  Similar to what was mentioned in Option #1, an all-weather gravel airstrip suitable for Boeing 737-800 Combo aircraft and establishment of an appropriate tailings disposal site will be required.

  1. Underground mining option – North access route

Block cave mining operation as mentioned in Option #3 with all the necessary hydraulic ore transportation infrastructure to pump ore to the north tidewater processing plant. Less surface environmental disturbance will be generated by the underground mining option as compared to the open pit option. This scenario is attractive as there is already an operating government-maintained airstrip suitable Boeing 737-800 Combo aircraft and an appropriate tailings disposal site.

Preliminary Conclusions

  1. Early indication is that the largest significant project CAPEX & OPEX improvement compared to the 2008 FS is to modularize the concentrator and all plant site infrastructure, administration and accommodation and power plant constructed on barges at an overseas ship yard and locate barges at project site tidewater for a turnkey startup operation
  2. The North access has a favourable shorter distance and existing infrastructure at tidewater. CAPEX must be allocated for the tunnel to complete the economic alternative assessment.
  3. Two low cost viable mining methods are being evaluated for selection in the final economic assessment which will include all the infrastructure components

StackPath and Server Density Merge

Brings Industry-Leading Monitoring to StackPath’s Secure Edge Services Platform

DALLAS, May 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Server Density, a provider of proactive infrastructure monitoring for cloud, servers, and websites, is merging with StackPath, a leading secure edge services platform provider. Server Density enables users to monitor their websites and servers in the cloud or on-prem from a single console and API to easily diagnose problems, maintain uptime and maximize server performance. The service will be integrated and offered as part of the StackPath platform in the very near future.

“We’re thrilled to have Server Density become part of our company. It’s a perfect fit,” said Lance Crosby, founder, chairman and CEO of StackPath. “StackPath has the highest commitment to providing our customers frictionless services, complete visibility into their solutions, and building strong relationships with the open source community and the industry at large. Server Density has followed the same commitments as it built exceptional technologies that are second to none and grew operations at cloud scale.”

The Server Density monitoring agent is installed on millions of servers, collecting more than 12-billion metrics each day. The service has more than 100 official integrations with other solutions and platforms, processes more than 300TB of data per month and has availability probes in more than 28 different geographies. Its 1,000+ customers across 75 different countries span all sizes and industries, such as and including the UK’s National Health Service (NHS), eCommerce company Firebox, and online game platform Stormancer.

“We created Server Density out of the frustration that monitoring tools were either too expensive, too complex, or both,” David Mytton, Server Density co-founder and CEO said. “It’s gratifying to see how well our tools have been received, not only by customers, but by developers and companies that have built on the code that we’ve open sourced. My team and I are excited to bring Server Density into the StackPath platform and accelerate even more evolutionary ways to leverage these technologies.”

In addition to its monitoring service, in 2016 Server Density created HumanOps, a community that gets people talking about the human aspects of running infrastructure. Companies such as Spotify, PagerDuty, Yelp and Facebook have contributed to sharing ideas and best practices for life on call, dealing with technical debt, fatigue and stress at events around the world, including the UK, US, France, Germany, Poland and more.

“HumanOps is a brilliant and long overdue resource for cloud workers and companies. This industry is evolving faster than any before it, requiring operations of unprecedented scale and solutions at unbelievable speed,” said Mr. Crosby. “It takes its toll on people—humans don’t have a 100% uptime SLA. We’re looking forward to doing even more with HumanOps as part of StackPath.”

In December 2015, Server Density raised $1.5 million in seed funding led by SP Ventures. They previously had raised €50k from Seedcamp and funding from angel investors Christoph Janz, Dick Williams, Qamar Aziz, and others. Financial details of the transaction are not being disclosed. Moving forward, the Server Density team in London will serve as the core of StackPath monitoring service team and London will become StackPath’s European headquarters.

Colliers International to Make Transformational Strategic Investment in Harrison Street Real Estate

Creates Leading International Asset Management Business and Further Strengthens Colliers’ Global Platform and Service Offerings

TORONTO and CHICAGO, May 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Leading global commercial real estate services firm Colliers International Group Inc. (NASDAQ:CIGI) (TSX:CIGI) today announced it has agreed to make a transformational, strategic investment in Harrison Street Real Estate Capital LLC (“Harrison Street”), one of the largest real estate investment firms dedicated to the education, healthcare and storage sectors with approximately $14.6 billion in assets under management. The transaction, which is fully financed and subject to customary closing conditions, is expected to close by the third quarter of 2018.

Headquartered in Chicago, with an office in London, Harrison Street is a pioneer in demographic-based real estate investing. Since inception in 2005, the firm has established a series of disciplined and highly differentiated investment products across multiple risk/return strategies, originating and managing a series of open and closed-end real estate investment funds and liquid securities. Harrison Street investors include many of the world’s most respected sovereign wealth funds, public & corporate pension funds, endowments, insurance companies, foundations and family offices.

Under the terms of the transaction, Colliers will acquire 75% of Harrison Street from its founders for $450 million, with an additional $100 million payable in 2022, based on the company achieving certain accelerated performance targets. The senior management team of Harrison Street will hold the balance of the equity. Colliers expects the annual run rate of management fee revenue to be between $100-115 million. Harrison Street’s Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Christopher Merrill, will serve as CEO, lead the operations and remains the largest individual shareholder. Harrison Street’s senior management team will continue to operate the firm’s day-to-day business as it always has, providing long-term stability for all the firms’ stakeholders.

 “The investment in Harrison Street is transformational and the most significant in our history,” said Jay Hennick, Chairman and CEO of Colliers International. “The transaction establishes us as one of the major players in global real estate investment management, providing an important new growth platform that also facilitates the integration of our existing operations in Europe. Our entrepreneurial operating and partnership philosophy aligns perfectly with Harrison Street, which brings an exceptional group of leaders to our organization and a company recognized by Pension & Investments as a best place to work in money management for the past four consecutive years.”

“In addition to its best-in-class returns, we were particularly attracted to Harrison Street’s focus on attractive real estate asset class strategies; massive segments offering significant, demographically-driven growth opportunities with defensive cycle characteristics,” said John Friedrichsen, Chief Financial Officer of Colliers International. “The recurring management fees and institutional quality reporting and governance offers Colliers another stable and recurring source of revenue and a tremendous opportunity to create value in the future.”

“As we began to explore the idea of partnering with an outside investor to position us for the future, it became clear Colliers was a perfect choice,” said Christopher Merrill. “Colliers provides long-term stability and increased alignment among our team and limited partners. The relationship strengthens our global capability and offers unique market knowledge and deep relationships with owners and occupiers of real estate around the world. Colliers’ entrepreneurial culture, decentralized management style, significant insider ownership and proven investment record was another significant difference. On behalf of our entire team, we look forward to leveraging these advantages for the benefit of our partners, employees and investors while further differentiating Harrison Street in the future,” he concluded.

In connection with this transaction, Berkshire Capital acted as financial advisor and DLA Piper acted as legal advisor to Harrison Street and the management team, while Three Ocean Partners acted as financial advisor and Winston & Strawn acted as legal advisor to certain of Harrison Street’s shareholders. Sidley Austin acted as legal advisor to Colliers.

Accelerator network ที่ใหญ่ที่สุดในเอเชียร่วมมือกับ Argon Group ซึ่งเป็นบริษัทที่ปรึกษาด้านระบบการเงินแบบดิจิทัลชั้นนำ และกับ Swarm.Fund ซึ่งเป็นแพลตฟอร์ม security token ตัวแรก เพื่อเปิดทางเข้าถึงกองทุน venture capital สำหรับสาธารณะ

เมืองพาโลอัลโต แคลิฟอร์เนีย, May 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — SparkLabs Group บริษัทที่มี accelerator network ที่ใหญ่ที่สุดในเอเชีย และกำลังจัดการกองทุน venture capital ต่างๆทั่วโลก ได้ร่วมมือกับ Argon Group ซึ่งเป็นบริษัทที่ปรึกษาด้านระบบการเงินแบบดิจิทัลชั้นนำ เพื่อดำเนินการนำ security token เสนอขาย สำหรับ startup accelerator ครั้งแรก ผ่านกองทุน Smart City & Smart Planet (sparklabs.tokenhub.com) ของพวกเขา

Token SparkLabs ไม่ใช่เป็นประเภท utility token แต่เป็นเพียงสัญญาอัจฉริยะ ที่แสดงถึงทุนของนักลงทุน (“พาร์ทเนอร์ จำกัด “) ที่มีไว้ตามเครื่องมือลงทุนนี้ ซึ่งจะเท่ากับหุ้นส่วนในบริษัทสตาร์ทอัพต่างๆที่เกี่ยวข้องกับบริษัท SparkLabs IoT & Smart City Accelerator ในเมืองซองโด เกาหลีใต้ และบริษัท SparkLabs Cultiv8 Accelerator ในเมืองออเร้นจ์ ประเทศออสเตรเลีย

“SparkLabs มีมุมมองที่อนุรักษ์มากเกี่ยวกับวงการ cryptocurrency และการเสนอขาย token  เราเป็นกังวลว่า utility token จำนวนมากจริงๆเป็น securities และมองวงการนี้ด้วยความกังวลใจบ้าง หลังจากการพิจารณาอย่างพิถีพิถันแล้ว ตอนนี้เราตัดสินใจที่จะก้าวเข้าสู่สระน้ำนี้ด้วยการเสนอขาย security token ที่เราเชื่อว่าเป็นแบบอนุรักษ์นิยม และช่วยให้นักลงทุนเข้าใจมากขึ้นว่า เรื่องนี้จะส่งผลต่ออุตสาหกรรมของเราในช่วงหลายปีต่อไปอย่างไร” นาย Jimmy Kim ผู้ร่วมก่อตั้งของ SparkLabs Group และอดีต CFO ของ Nexon (บริษัทเกมออนไลน์ที่ใหญ่ที่สุดในเกาหลีใต้) กล่าว  นอกจากนี้ สตาร์ทอัพใหม่ล่าสุดของนาย Kim คือบริษัท N3N ก็เป็นการลงทุนครั้งแรกของ Cisco ในด้าน IoT
