Aurania notiert an der Frankfurter Wertpapierbörse

Aurania Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: ARU) („Aurania“ oder das „Unternehmen“ – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=loQK2aflD3Q&t=3s) freut sich, die Notierung an der Frankfurter Wertpapierbörse unter dem Börsenkürzel „20Q“ bekannt zu geben. Nach New York (NYSE) und NASDAQ liegt die Frankfurter Wertpapierbörse in puncto Handelsvolumen weltweit an dritter Stelle. Die Notierung in Frankfurt wird europäischen und anderen internationalen Anlegern einen umfassenderen Zugang zu Aurania ermöglichen. 

Das Unternehmen ist auch dabei, eine Notierung am OTCQB Venture Market in den Vereinigten Staaten zu beantragen. Ein Upgrade vom standardmäßigen Grey-Sheets-Markt zum OTCQB-Markt bietet Anlegern Zugang zu den aktuellsten Informationen und reduziert gleichzeitig die Handelslimits und -beschränkungen, denen Unternehmen häufig durch den Handel am Grey-Sheets-Markt ausgesetzt sind. Der OTCQB ist von der U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) als etablierter öffentlicher Markt anerkannt. Ein OTCQB-Listing ermöglicht es Brokern, ein Wertpapier leichter zu quotieren und zu handeln.

„Aurania hat einen weiteren Schritt unternommen, um seine internationale Bekanntheit zu erhöhen und Investitionen durch globale Anleger in das Unternehmen zu erleichtern. Die Frankfurter Wertpapierbörse macht über 90 % des Volumens aller deutschen Börsen aus und eine Notierung sollte unseren Investorenkreis erweitern“, sagte Dr. Keith Barron, Chairman und CEO von Aurania. „Darüber hinaus sollte ein OTCQB-Listing, das wir derzeit beantragen, sicherstellen, dass US-Investoren Zugang zu den denselben hochwertigen Informationen haben, die auch den Anlegern, die an der TSX-V handeln, zur Verfügung stehen. Die Notierung am OTCQB Notierung sollte die Volatilität verringern, die wir in den letzten Tagen am Grey-Sheets-Markt beobachten haben.“

Die von der Deutschen Börse betriebene Frankfurter Wertpapierbörse verfügt über mehr als 250 internationale Handelsinstitute und mehr als 4.500 Händler. Die Anleger, die direkt an die Frankfurter Wertpapierbörse angeschlossen sind, repräsentieren 35 % des weltweiten Investitionskapitals.

EUROEXPO Messe-und Kongress-GmbH and Landesmesse Stuttgart GmbH have agreed an important strategic cooperation with Messe Muenchen Shanghai Co., Ltd. The three parties will co-locate transport logistic China and LogiMAT China on the same stage of the Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC) from April 15 to 17, 2019.

LogiMAT China evolved from the famous intralogistics brand exhibition LogiMAT in Stuttgart, which has gained recognition from many leading international enterprises over its 16-year history since its first show in 2003. The recently held LogiMAT 2018 attracted 1,564 exhibitors and 55,375 visitors from 40 countries and regions over 117,000 m2 of space. LogiMAT Stuttgart has established itself as the world’s leading show for intralogistics solutions.

LogiMAT China has been successfully held on four occasions in China. Organized by EUROEXPO Messe-und Kongress-GmbH and Landesmesse Stuttgart GmbH, it is based on the German brand concept, LogiMAT. China is committed to building a solution and technology exchange platform to help enterprises optimize the supply chain, improve logistics efficiency and reduce logistics costs.

On May 18 during transport logistic China 2018 in Shanghai, the organizers of transport logistic China and LogiMAT China held a press conference on strategic cooperation to announce that LogiMAT will move to Shanghai from 2019 onwards, and that the two trade shows will be held together to establish a new, one-stop B2B platform of intralogistics solutions and logistics services with 40,000m2 of exhibition space.

The press conference attracted about one hundred media and exhibitor representatives from the logistics and manufacturing industries. Among other VIPs, Dr. Robert Schönberger, Exhibition Group Director of Messe München GmbH, Mr. Peter Kazander, Managing Director of EUROEXPO Messe-und Kongress-GmbH, and Mr. Bai Daping, General Manager of Jungheinrich delivered speeches.

“I am extremely delighted to witness the cooperation between the Asian versions of two major logistics exhibitions. transport logistic China is our ideal partner”, explained Mr. Peter Kazander, Managing Director of EUROEXPO Messe-und Kongress-GmbH, emphasizing the strategic importance of this cooperation. “The vigorous economic development in China heralds an unprecedented growth opportunity for the intralogistics industry. As the economic center of China, Shanghai enjoys exceptional regional advantages. For the first time in Shanghai, LogiMAT China 2019 will present the latest trends in intralogistics across an exhibition space of 12,000 m2.”

“Since stepping into China in 2004, transport logistic China has grown into one of the biggest, most influential exhibitions for the logistics and transportation industries in Asia. This year, it has attracted 667 exhibitors from 58 countries and regions and about 25,000 visitors, giving it a high-profile focus within the industry. We hope that through the win-win cooperation with LogiMAT, we can share our resources, integrate our combined strengths, promote the intelligent upgrading of the logistics industry in China and lead innovative development in the market”, commented Ms. Xu Jia, Chief Operating Officer of Messe Muenchen Shanghai Co., Ltd.

In addition, as the representative of exhibitors, Mr. Bai Daping, General Manager of Jungheinrich China, expressed high expectations for the cooperation between transport logistic China and LogiMAT China. He believes that the collaboration between the two exhibitions will bring benefits and raise efficiency for both exhibitors and visitors.

In particular, forward-looking information included in this news release includes, without limitation, the anticipated closing date of the Transaction, the receipt of final court approval and other regulatory approvals. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from these forward-looking statements are set forth in the management discussion and analysis and other disclosures of risk factors for each of First Cobalt and US Cobalt, filed on SEDAR at www.sedar.com. Although First Cobalt and US Cobalt believe that the information and assumptions used in preparing the forward-looking statements are reasonable, undue reliance should not be placed on these statements, which only apply as of the date of this news release, and no assurance can be given that such events will occur in the disclosed times frames or at all.

Historic Estimates

US Cobalt considers the cobalt and copper tonnage and grade estimates above as historical estimates. The historical estimates do not use categories that conform to current CIM Definition Standards on Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves as outlined in National Instrument 43-101, Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101”) and have not been redefined to conform to current CIM Definition Standards. They were prepared in the 1980s prior to the adoption and implementation of NI 43-101. A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify the historical estimates as current mineral resources and US Cobalt is not treating the historical estimates as current mineral resources. More work, including, but not limited to, drilling, will be required to conform the estimates to current CIM Definition Standards. Investors are cautioned that the historical estimates do not mean or imply that economic deposits exist on the Iron Creek property. US Cobalt has not undertaken any independent investigation of the historical estimates nor has it independently analyzed the results of the previous exploration work in order to verify the accuracy of the information. US Cobalt believes that the historical estimates are relevant to continuing exploration on the Iron Creek property.

As part of the optimisation programme regarding the Thun manufacturing site and the company’s product portfolio which was communicated on 2 November 2017, Meyer Burger Technology Ltd (SIX Swiss Exchange: MBTN) announced today that it will transfer its Solar Systems business (“Energy Systems”) and the 32 impacted employees to 3S Solar Plus AG, a company which will be newly created and which has been sold to Dr Patrick Hofer-Noser. In the past few months Meyer Burger had evaluated various strategic options for the business which mainly addresses the Swiss market with its MegaSlate® products. The sale will result in a loss for Meyer Burger in the low single-digit million range including a goodwill recycling of around CHF 1 million. Completion of the contract which has been signed with Dr Patrick Hofer-Noser is subject to standard closing conditions and expected to be completed in the first half of 2018. Both parties have agreed to maintain confidentiality regarding the transaction price.

Hans Brändle, CEO of Meyer Burger: “By selling the Solar Systems unit to Patrick Hofer-Noser, we have found an industrial and especially also local solution for the MegaSlate® business and the employees.”

Patrick Hofer-Noser is a long-time, internationally respected specialist in the solar industry. He was a founding member and later Delegate of the Board of Directors and Chief Executive Officer of 3S Industries AG, in Lyss/Switzerland, which merged into Meyer Burger Group in 2010.

asknet AG performs successfully in Q1

 

– eCommerce Solutions Business Unit wins six new customers
– Academics Business Unit continues to expand its sales partnerships
– Full-year forecast confirmed: clearly higher gross profits and positive result

asknet AG, part of the Swiss-listed international technology and media company The Native SA (www.thenative.ch), looks back on a successful business performance in the first three months of 2018.

The most important operational developments in the Academics Business Unit included the implementation of the new sales partnerships and the creation of a partner network for the ongoing internationalization of the distribution channels. The partnership with ANSYS, the world’s leading manufacturer of simulation software, was intensified and the first major licenses were sold to customers from the research and educational sectors. asknet also won a tender by the federal state of Saxony to supply the state’s universities with Microsoft licenses. As announced in the press release dated April 6, 2018, asknet launched a new Microsoft Office 365 complete package, for which three customers have already been won. More customers are about to sign the corresponding contracts soon.

“We have an attractive portfolio of software and hardware from leading manufacturers in the academic sector. We believe that the further internationalization of our offerings holds vast opportunities for future growth and rely on strong partners to support us in expanding our sales activities in the target regions,” says Michael Baumann, Head of the Academics Business Unit.

The eCommerce Solutions Business Unit won six new customers in the first three months of 2018. The corresponding shops have largely been completed and will contribute to revenues and earnings as of the second quarter. In addition, customizing projects were implemented for several new customers, which help to further intensify asknet’s customer relationships. The Business Unit has the biggest growth potential in Asia, where many new manufacturers are trying to gain a foothold in the global online market and rely on full-service suppliers such as asknet. The Business Unit also aims to further internationalize its operations, especially in the US market.

“We had a very good start to the year 2018 and will work on a large number of new customer projects in the second quarter. Our market remains hotly contested but very dynamic. Building on the sales successes of the past two fiscal years, we were able to improve our market position significantly and meanwhile have a continuous pipeline of new customers,” says Jan Schöttelndreier, Head of the eCommerce Solutions Business Unit.

As announced in the ad-hoc release dated May 3, 2018 the CEO of asknet AG, Tobias Kaulfuss, will resign from the Executive Board at the Annual General Meeting on June 28 but has simultaneously been proposed for election to the Supervisory Board. His successor on the Executive Board is Sergey Skatershchikov, Chief Financial Officer of asknet AG and Chairman of the Board of Directors of the majority shareholder, The Native SA.

“Since I took up office, asknet Group has gone through a thorough change process during which it has laid the professional basis for dynamic growth. Step by step we will now be able to reap the fruits of this process. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our employees, customers and partners for their support during this time. We see great potential for the future for both Business Units, which are today positioned as independent, powerful units, with their own organization, human resources and experienced management team,” says Tobias Kaulfuss, CEO of asknet AG, adding that the company’s strategic position has changed fundamentally since the entry of The Native SA. “We can now build on the network, the expertise and the financial muscle of our new majority shareholder. I am therefore very optimistic about the future of asknet Group, which I hope I will be able to serve in the future as a member of the Supervisory Board.”

The Executive Board of asknet AG continues to project a strong increase in consolidated gross profits as well as positive earnings before taxes (EBT) for the full year 2018.

Though adhesives are a crucial part of the packaging industry, manufacturers need to ensure their work is environmentally friendly. artimelt can offer their product partners across the value chain a range of products.

What role do adhesives play in packaging, with particular regard to product labelling?

artimelt: Adhesives play a vital part in almost every form of packaging. They are needed to laminate filmic materials to provide the desired functions of packaging materials, or to encase printing layers. Adhesives are used to erect boxes from cardboard sheets.

When it comes to packaging decoration, pressure-sensitive adhesives enable various types of labels to be applied easily and efficiently. Adhesives are essential in fulfilling packaging’s main functions: the containment, protection, identification, presentation and promotion of goods.

What is artimelt’s relationship with
packaging converters?

artimelt develops, manufactures and markets hot melt adhesives. It produces pressure-sensitive adhesives that are used for self-adhesive or peel-and-stick labels.

artimelt works with label laminate producers and printers to select the right adhesive for them. At the same time, the compliance requirements for food standards have intensified in recent years.

The company therefore works closely with its customers and their customers – to properly assess and understand adhesive behaviour to ensure safety.

It develops highly specialised closure systems that include tamper-indication features; for example, for duty-free or crime-scene-investigation bags.

artimelt also develops heat-seal coatings that are used to close pouches for medical devices. The adhesive in this particular application is adapted to the fibrous substrate, so it doesn’t tear upon opening.

What is the importance of bio-based products – and degradability – in packaging?

Almost all packaging becomes obsolete once the product has been used. The industry has therefore worked hard to reduce the amount of material it uses, to become more efficient, and to promote reuse or recycling. Bio-based and/ or degradable packaging components have also entered the market. artimelt believes that a holistic approach is necessary to make packaging more sustainable.

Although adhesives have an important function in packaging, they are typically invisible, and often forgotten. This means that a clear understanding of packaging, its construction, and end-of-life scenarios are the basis for sustainable projects. artimelt is keen to discuss these topics with brand-owners.

What kind of technology does artimelt use to help make packaging more sustainable?

Hot melt adhesives are an environmentally friendly adhesive technology. They don’t employ solvents or other carrier liquids that need to be transported and dried off after application. artimelt can further support the sustainability activities of the packaging industry in various areas. For example, it creates adhesives with a bio-based content of up to 70%.

It also offers adhesives with tailored properties to enable the removability of labels, and adhesives that are compatible with recycling processes. Some of artimelt’s adhesives are particularly suitable for linerless labels, a development welcomed by its customers. Linerless labels are cost-effective, environmentally friendly and sustainable.

In general, why should customers choose artimelt over its competition in the packaging industry?

artimelt has over 35 years’ experience in the development, production and application of hot melt adhesives. Its staff is personally committed to learning what their customers need, and its ‘experience lab’ provides an ideal testing environment for the exchange of knowledge, the conduction of coating trials and the preparation of prototype samples.

Nutanix Flow: softwaregesteuerte Netzwerklösungen für sichere Anwendungen mit einem Klick

Nutanix (NASDAQ: NTNX), Spezialist für Enterprise Cloud Computing, hat auf seiner .NEXT-Konferenz in New Orleans Nutanix Flow vorgestellt – eine softwaregesteuerte Netzwerklösung (software-defined networking, kurz SDN), die speziell für die Multi-Cloud-Ära entwickelt wurde. Sie bietet anwendungszentrierte Sicherheit zum Schutz vor internen und externen Bedrohungen, die von herkömmlichen Perimeter-orientierten Sicherheitslösungen nicht erkannt werden. Die Flow-Funktionen sind vollständig in die Acropolis-Software von Nutanix integriert und werden künftig durch die Technologie zur Echtzeit-Anwendungssichtbarkeit und -Erkennung ergänzt werden, die durch die kürzlich erfolgte Übernahme von Netsil zur Verfügung steht. Mit Nutanix Flow lässt sich Anwendungssicherheit ohne weitere Eingriffe automatisiert einrichten und managen.

IT-Abteilungen von Unternehmen nutzen heutzutage Cloud-basierte Infrastrukturen, um moderne Geschäftsanwendungen zu implementieren, von denen viele aus unterschiedlichen, aber miteinander verbundenen Diensten bestehen. Der Schutz dieser Anwendungen erfordert die Mikrosegmentierungs-Funktionen von Nutanix Flow, das anwendungsspezifische Richtlinien zur Steuerung der Kommunikation zwischen einzelnen Anwendungsdiensten durchsetzt. Nutanix wird außerdem die Stream-Processing-, Application-Discovery- und Mapping-Technologie von Netsil nutzen, um die Definition von Sicherheitsrichtlinien für Anwendungen sowohl in öffentlichen als auch in privaten Clouds zu vereinfachen. IT-Abteilungen und Fachbereichsleiter können darauf vertrauen, dass ihre Geschäftsanwendungen sowohl vor internen als auch externen Bedrohungen geschützt sind.

„Die nächste Entwicklungsstufe des Networking besteht darin, für Netzwerktransparenz zu sorgen, damit Kunden ihre Daten im Blick behalten und analysieren, die Leistung ihrer Anwendungen in der Cloud steigern und ihre Ressourcen optimieren können“, so Harjot Gill, Senior Director, Product & Engineering bei Nutanix. „Wir haben hart daran gearbeitet, Netsils innovative Funktionalität in Nutanix Flow zu integrieren. Wir sind stolz darauf, dass unsere Kunden demnächst in der Lage sein werden, von unserer führenden Technologie in Sachen Transparenz und Discovery zu profitieren.“

Als Bestandteil des „Nutanix Enterprise Cloud OS“ umfasst Nutanix Flow folgende Funktionen:
 

  • Netzwerkvisualisierung: bietet Anwendungsverantwortlichen einen sofortigen Überblick über Netzwerkleistung und Verfügbarkeit pro Anwendung.
  • Anwendungszentrierte Mikrosegmentierung: bietet granulare Kontrolle und Steuerung für den gesamten Anwendungsverkehr, um sensible Workloads und Daten zu schützen.
  • Einfügen und Verketten von Diensten: integriert zusätzliche Netzwerkfunktionen verschiedenster Partnerunternehmen, die Teil des „Network Ready Ecosystem“ sind, in eine einzige Netzwerkrichtlinie.
  • Netzwerkautomatisierung: optimiert und automatisiert häufige Änderungen der Netzwerkkonfiguration, beispielsweise Änderungen an der VLAN-Konfiguration oder an Load-Balancer-Richtlinien – auf Basis von Anwendungslebenszyklus-Ereignissen für virtuelle Maschinen, die auf Nutanix AHV ausgeführt werden.

Um Innovationen und Agilität im Infrastrukturbereich zu beschleunigen, empfiehlt Gartner den Verantwortlichen für Infrastruktur und Betrieb, „Netzwerkautomatisierungs-, Visualisierungs- und Optimierungsfunktionen zu einem integralen Bestandteil ihres Auswahlprozesses zu machen und diejenigen Anbieter zu priorisieren, die eine anwendungsspezifische Sicht auf die Cluster-Leistung liefern.“ (Gartner Research, Four Factors That Will Shape the Future of Hyperconverged Infrastructure. März 2018)

„Mit Nutanix Flow vervollständigen wir unser Ziel, die IT-Infrastruktur unsichtbar zu machen“, erläutert Sunil Potti, Chief Product & Development Officer bei Nutanix. „Bei der Vereinfachung des Netzwerks haben wir einen modernen Ansatz gewählt, um sowohl die Unternehmensanwendungen als auch die innovativen Cloud-nativen Dienste transparent machen und steuern zu können. Das Enterprise-Cloud-Betriebssystem von Nutanix konvergiert jetzt die Rechen-, Speicher-, Virtualisierungs- und Netzwerk-Ressourcen, um so gut wie jede Anwendung unabhängig von ihrem Ressourcenverbrauch zu betreiben.“

Informationen zur Verfügbarkeit

Nutanix Flow ist ab sofort verfügbar. Zusätzliche Funktionen zu Netzwerktransparenz und Anwendungserkennung, die auf der kürzlich erworbenen Netsil-Technologie basieren, befinden sich in der Entwicklung.

Weitere Informationen zu Nutanix Flow sind auf der Nutanix-Website und im Nutanix-Blog erhältlich.
