("Nesscap") (TSX VENTURE: NCE), a global leader in research, development and manufacturing of ultracapacitor products, announces that it has completed the renewal of the Convertible Notes and bridge financing previously announced on March 19, 2014.
Nesscap, I2BF Energy Inc. (I2BF) and Arbat Capital Group Ltd. (Arbat) have renewed USD 5,829,333 of 12% Convertible Notes that matured on February 28, 2014 on the following terms and conditions: (i) the Convertible Notes have a maturity date of April 1, 2015; (ii) the conversion price is CAD 0.10 per common share; and (iii) the interest rate is 14% per annum.
I2BF has also provided bridge financing to Nesscap in an amount of up to USD 2,000,000 (the Loan) on the following terms: (i) the Loan has a maturity date of April 1, 2015; (ii) an initial tranche of USD $1,000,000 was made available on April 4, 2014 and a second tranche of up to US $1,000,000 will be made available in one or more instalments with drawdown conditions to be mutually agreed; (iii) the interest rate for the Loan is 10% per annum with such interest to be accrued and payable together with the principal amount on April 1, 2015; (vi) the Loan is unsecured and ranks equally with other unsecured creditors of Nesscap; (v) prepayment of principal and interest, in whole or in part, is permitted at any time without premium or penalty; and (vi) outstanding principal and accrued (but unpaid) interest of the loans must be repaid by Nesscap upon completion of an equity financing in a minimum amount of USD 20,000,000.
Nesscap also issued 2,943,733 common shares to I2BF in connection with the advance of the Loan. These bonus shares were issued at a deemed price of CAD 0.075 and are subject to resale restrictions until August 5, 2014.
As a result of the transactions described above I2BF now controls 57,984,597 common shares of Nesscap representing approximately 25.6% of the issued and outstanding common shares after the issuance of the bonus shares.

Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective ...

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...

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...

When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved. Security is closely intertwined with the networking choices made for the hybrid cloud. Traditional networking approaches for building a hybrid cloud try to kludge together the enterprise infrastructure with the public cloud. Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...

DevOps is all about agility. However, you don't want to be on a high-speed bus to nowhere. The right DevOps approach controls velocity with a tight feedback loop that not only consists of operational data but also incorporates business context. With a business context in the decision making, the right business priorities are incorporated, which results in a higher value creation. In his session at DevOps Summit, Todd Rader, Solutions Architect at AppDynamics, discussed key monitoring techniques...

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 ...

The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series dat...
