TORONTO, Dec. 17, 2012 /CNW/ - Plantro Ltd. ("Plantro") and its sole shareholder, Matthew Proud ("Proud") together with Seastone Investments Limited ("Seastone"), the investment company of Proud's brother, Tyler Proud, are pleased to announce their take-over bid (the "Offer") for all of the issued and outstanding common shares of OneMove Technologies Inc. (TSX-V: OM) ("OneMove" or the "Company") at a price of Cdn.$0.425 per share. According to publicly available information, OneMove has 12,503,518 issued and outstanding common shares. The Offer will represent a premium of approximately 32% to the volume weighted average trading price of the common shares on the TSX-V for the 50 day period ended December 14, 2012.
Seastone, Plantro and Proud (together, the "Offeror") will file a joint amended early warning report indicating that, inter alia, they may be considered to be 'acting jointly and in concert' in respect of OneMove's securities, as such phrase is defined in section 91 of the Securities Act (Ontario). Collectively the Offeror owns or has control or direction over an aggregate of 2,985,500 common shares representing approximately 23.9% of the Company's issued and outstanding shares and warrants to acquire up to an additional 2,800,000 common shares representing approximately an additional 18.3% of the Company's common shares.
Assuming the exercise of the warrants held by the Offeror, the Offeror would own or have control or direction over an aggregate of 5,785,500 common shares representing approximately 37.8% of the Company's common shares.
There is currently no agreement, commitment or understanding between the Offeror and 2352512 Ontario Inc., a corporation owned by Proud's father, regarding their respective ownership of securities of the Company or the Offer. 2352512 Ontario Inc. currently owns 800,000 common shares representing approximately 6.4% of the Company's common shares and warrants to acquire up to an additional 800,000 common shares representing approximately an additional 6.0% of the Company's common shares, which taken together with securities held by the Offeror, represent approximately 45.9% of the Company's outstanding common shares (assuming exercise of warrants).
In addition, holders of an aggregate of approximately 2,000,000 (or 16%) of the Company's common shares not already owned by the Offeror have indicated their support for the Offer by entering into lock-up agreements.
By way of letter dated December 14, 2012, Plantro invited the Company to negotiate a support agreement in respect of the Offer which the Company declined.
The Offer will be made through a wholly owned subsidiary of Plantro and will be conditional on, among other things, the deposit of that number of common shares which, when taken together with the shares already owned by the Offeror, constitutes at least 66 2/3% of the shares. The Offeror has sufficient cash resources on hand that will be relied upon to take up and pay for common shares deposited and not withdrawn under the Offer.
The purpose of the Offer is to acquire all of the common shares not already owned by the Offeror. As the Offer is an "insider bid" as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 ("61-101"), the Offeror has asked the Company to prepare a valuation pursuant to 61-101. The Offeror intends to commence the Offer as soon as practicable following receipt of the valuation from the Company, at which time the Offer documents will be filed with applicable securities regulatory authorities and copies will be delivered to OneMove. The Offeror intends to request a list of securityholders from the Company and, when received, will send the Offer documents to OneMove's securityholders. Copies of the Offer documents will also be available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.

The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade.

If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from ha...

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using ...

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...
