As set out in the notice of redemption, Parex will redeem, as of September 25, 2014 ("Redemption Date"), all of the aggregate principal amount of the Debentures for cash.

In accordance with the terms of the Indenture governing the Debentures, Parex can redeem the Debentures prior to June 30, 2016, in whole or in part, provided that the volume-weighted average trading price of the common shares of Parex ("Parex Shares") for the 20 consecutive trading days ending on the fifth trading day preceding the date that the notice of redemption is issued exceeds 125% of the C$10.15 per share conversion price. "We are proud that the strong performance of our operations and equity has put us in a position to redeem the Debentures well in advance of their June 30, 2016 maturity date. In addition, the early redemption simplifies our capital structure and provides enhanced financial flexibility," stated Ken Pinsky, Chief Financial Officer.
Holders of the Debentures have the right to convert their Debentures, at their option, into Parex Shares at a conversion price of C$10.15 per Parex Share at any time prior 5:00 pm Calgary time on September 24, 2014.

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 ...

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...

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...

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...
