    Lending Club CEO Breaks Channel Crossing RecordLending Club CEO Renaud Laplanche and Ryan Breymaier establish new world speed sailing record across the English Channel in 5 hours, 15 minutes

    COWES, England, April 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Lending Club , the world's largest marketplace connecting borrowers and investors, today announced that CEO Renaud Laplanche and co-skipper Ryan Breymaier established a new world speed sailing record across the English Channel from the Royal Yacht Squadron Cowes, Isle of Wight to Dinard, France in 5 hours, 15 minutes, subject to ratification by the World Speed Sailing Record Council (WSSRC) aboard their 105-foot offshore trimaran "Lending Club 2" at an average speed of 26.36 knots.

    https://photos.prnewswire.com/prnvar/20150401/196162

    Other crew members included Jan Majer, Stanislas Delbarre, Olivier Laplanche, navigator Boris Herrmann, French racing veterans Jean-Baptiste Le Vaillant and Roland Jourdain, and OBR Quin Bisset. Shore based weather routing was provided by Wouter Verbraak.

    Following preparation overseen by Breymaier in France and training in the past week, the boat had been stationed in Gosport, UK waiting for the perfect weather window, while Laplanche flew in at the last minute on Monday to take the helm once weather conditions had been confirmed.

    The previous record of 5 hours, 23 minutes was established by skipper Brian Thompson, navigator Adrienne Cahalan and the crew of "Maiden II," a 110-foot catamaran, in September 2002 at an average speed of 25.6 knots.

    "After our attempt at breaking the Transpacific record in 2013, we had been working on assembling the right boat, crew and weather conditions to make another record attempt," said Laplanche. "The Cowes to Dinard record is a very special challenge that had been around for over 10 years; I am very proud of what the crew accomplished today."

    "We always knew the Cowes to Dinard record would be very tough to break as Maiden set the bar high. We're overjoyed with our result today; it's a great start to our record-breaking plans for the year," added Breymaier, member of Royal Ocean Racing Club.

    Laplanche has personally chartered the 105-foot offshore trimaran (formerly "Banque Populaire 7") and renamed it "Lending Club 2" for a series of races and record-breaking attempts throughout 2015. Pictures and videos of the record-breaking run can be viewed on the team's Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/LendingClubSailing.

    Robbins Arroyo LLP: SanDisk Corp. Misled Shareholders According to a Recently Filed Class Action

    SAN DIEGO and MILPITAS, Calif., April 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Shareholder rights law firm Robbins Arroyo LLP announces that an investor of SanDisk Corp. (NASDAQGS: SNDK) has filed a federal securities fraud class action complaint in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California. The complaint alleges that the company and certain of its officers and directors violated the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 between October 16, 2014 and March 25, 2015. SanDisk designs, develops, manufactures, and markets data storage solutions.

    SanDisk Misrepresents Its Business Practices

    According to the complaint, SanDisk made materially false and misleading statements regarding quality control within the corporate organizational structure and failed to disclose that it was experiencing: (i) product qualification delays; (ii) lower than expected sales of enterprise products; and (iii) lower pricing in some areas of business, all of which would have a negative future financial impact on the company. The truth came out on March 26, 2015, according to the complaint, when SanDisk revealed that it expected first quarter revenue to be approximately $1.3 billion, despite a previously forecasted revenue range of $1.4 to $1.45 billion, and lowered its overall 2015 revenue forecast. On this news, shares of SanDisk dropped $14.98, or over 18%, to close at $66.20 per share.

    SanDisk Shareholders Have Legal Options

    Vonage Holdings Completes the Acquisition of Simple Signal Inc.

    HOLMDEL, N.J., April 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Vonage Holdings Corp. ("the Company"), a leading provider of cloud communications services for consumers and businesses, has completed the acquisition of Simple Signal Inc. ("SimpleSignal"), a leading provider of Unified Communications-as-a-Service (UCaaS) and collaboration solutions to small and medium businesses (SMBs). Vonage paid $25.25 million for SimpleSignal, comprised of approximately $20 million in cash and approximately 1.1 million shares in Vonage common stock.

    "The SimpleSignal acquisition represents another important step in the execution of our growth strategy for becoming the clear leader in Unified Communications as a Service. SimpleSignal is a natural complement to Vonage's rapidly expanding UCaaS business. Its strong channel and strategic partnerships, coupled with a common underlying technology platform, deepens Vonage's penetration in UCaaS," said Alan Masarek, Vonage Chief Executive Officer.

    "In less than 18 months, Vonage has become the fastest-growing provider of cloud communications in the SMB market. Becoming a part of Vonage will instantly put SimpleSignal at the forefront of growth in this market, and I couldn't be more pleased that SimpleSignal's employees, customers and partners will now benefit from the strength and scale of Vonage," said Dave Gilbert, former Chief Executive Officer of SimpleSignal.

    Mr. Gilbert will join Vonage as a special advisor working closely with Vonage management through the merger integration.

    SimpleSignal uses BroadSoft's BroadWorks platform, the same BroadSoft-based platform used by Telesphere, resulting in ease of integration for SimpleSignal customers. SimpleSignal sells its solutions primarily through a nationwide network of indirect channel partners, which meaningfully broadens Vonage's already strong market coverage. Vonage's channel organization is now one of the largest in the UCaaS sector.

    SimpleSignal provides solutions with carrier-grade reliability across their own MPLS network and bring your own broadband (BYOB) delivery options. SimpleSignal has been particularly successful at providing business-quality voice and rich communication features utilizing new technologies to extend MPLS-like quality to BYOB customers. The acquisition further enhances Vonage's ability to serve the needs of a wide range of businesses, from small office/home office companies to SMBs with distributed workforces, and firms with more than 1000 employees.

    About Vonage

    Vonage is a leading provider of cloud communications services for consumers and businesses. Vonage provides a robust suite of feature-rich residential and business communication solutions that offer flexibility, portability and ease-of-use, designed to meet the needs of a wide range of customers from individuals to large businesses.

    Vonage residential service (www.vonage.com) for individuals and families, and Vonage Business Solutions service (www.vonagebusiness.com) for small and medium businesses, run over the top of a customer's existing broadband connection. Through Telesphere (www.telesphere.com), Vonage offers service with carrier-grade performance over a private national MPLS broadband network, which is especially well suited to address the needs of larger businesses with multiple offices that require higher service level agreements (SLAs).

    and creativity.
    --  Hulu Turns Back the Clock to 1996: In 2011, Hulu reskinned their
    homepage with TV programming from 1996. While it was obviously a prank,
    this successful tactic helped to build brand awareness and drive traffic
    back to their site.
    --  BMW Pickup Truck. BMW increased the likeability factor of their brand
    when they unveiled a pickup-truck version of its M3 sports car at a
    Munich auto show. While most hoaxes involve manipulating photos, the
    Bavarian firm went one step further and developed an actual truck.

    Delta Becomes the First U.S. Airline To Offer Alipay Payment and Improve the Ease of Online Booking from China

    ATLANTA and SHANGHAI, April 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Delta Air Lines is partnering with Ant Financial Services Group ("Ant Financial") and UATP to make it easier for Chinese consumers to purchase airline tickets via delta.com. The move, which sees Delta become the first United States carrier to add Ant Financial's Alipay payment platform to its website, is part of the airline's ongoing effort to serve Chinese travelers. UATP's alternative form of payment processing initiative connects airlines with online payment brands such as Alipay.

    http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnvar/20090202/DELTALOGO

    With the Alipay payment option on delta.com, Chinese travelers will now be able to use China's most trusted payment method when they book Delta flights. Alipay is China's leading online payment provider and the primary means of online and mobile payment for Chinese consumers.

    China has emerged as the world's top-spending and fastest-growing tourism source market over the past decade due to rapid urbanization and the astonishing growth of its middle class. With an enthusiasm for exploring new destinations and different lifestyles, this new generation of Chinese consumers has made the United States its most desired travel destination. In 2013, 1.8 million Chinese travelers visited the United States, contributing $21.1 billion to the U.S. economy*. Following the recent easing of reciprocal visa policies between the U.S. and China, a further increase in Chinese travelers is now expected.

    "We are thrilled to help Delta Air Lines make purchasing travel from China easier and more accessible than ever," said Jingming Li, President, Ant Financial Services Group, Americas. "Giving Chinese customers access to the payment method they most trust signals the great service that they can expect when they travel with Delta - from the ease of online booking to the airline's Chinese-speaking flight attendants and airport support."

    The partnership with Ant Financial will help Delta connect with the more than 300 million registered Alipay users in China. These savvy online consumers will be able to fund their Alipay purchase on delta.com through bank accounts or credit or debit cards with over 200 Alipay financial institution partners around the world.

    "This exciting new partnership is one of many Delta initiatives to build the most Chinese-friendly U.S. airline," said Vinay Dube, Delta's senior vice president - Asia Pacific. "As the U.S. and China have agreed to issue multiple-entry visas for up to ten years for short-term business and tourist travel, our partnership with Alipay will give more Chinese consumers the chance to experience traveling in the U.S. with our industry-leading product and service in flight and on the ground."

    Delta operates nonstop flights from Beijing and Shanghai-Pudong to two U.S. gateways, Detroit and Seattle, where passengers can connect to more than 250 U.S. cities. Delta also operates daily nonstop flights from Shanghai-Pudong to Tokyo-Narita, where passengers have additional connection options to Delta's global network. Delta recently announced a new service between Shanghai and Los Angeles starting July 9, 2015.

    Delta has been increasing nonstop flights from China to the U.S. since 2009 to address the growing travel demand in the market. Delta continues to make significant investments to build the most Chinese-friendly U.S. airline. Chinese travelers are well served with local language options on the delta.com website, at airport self-service kiosks and among inflight entertainment selections. The airline is also proud to have Chinese-speaking flight attendants and to offer Chinese cuisine among its inflight meal options.

    FairPoint Announces Launch of Data Center Services to Wholesale ProvidersEnables Wholesale Re-sellers and Cloud Providers to Scale Solutions and Improve Performance with Data Center Access from Northern New England, Boston and NYC

    PORTLAND, Maine, April 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- FairPoint Communications, Inc. , a leading northern New England retail and wholesale communications provider, today announced the launch of data center services applications for wholesale re-sellers and cloud providers seeking a New England presence.

    Growth in Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions will drive cloud providers to use third-party data centers to grow their business, since they often need to scale their solution into regions further away from their primary data center. Satellite data centers reduce latency and improve performance of application servers by moving compute and storage resources closer to customers and off-loading the primary and secondary data centers. In addition, data centers can also be employed as part of a comprehensive disaster recovery strategy.

    "Cloud providers know that response times for their end users are very important in certain applications, so having data centers close to those users becomes critical," said Chris Alberding, FairPoint Vice President of Product Management. "Cloud providers offering services to customers in the Northeast are turning to FairPoint because we offer a highly reliable and physically secure infrastructure, low-cost power and access to skilled labor. As the local service provider, FairPoint offers fiber Ethernet and Wavelength Service to key IXC NNIs."

    "In addition to the demand we are seeing for cloud satellite data centers, we also have wholesale customers coming to us to use data center colocation for disaster recovery," said Alberding. "FairPoint has been serving the wholesale community for many years and we are excited to now offer these additional data center services."

    With more than 16,000 fiber route miles and counting, FairPoint's data centers connect not only to the largest owned and managed Ethernet network in northern New England, but also through extended connectivity into Boston and New York City. As a network infrastructure service provider, FairPoint data center services can include high-speed Ethernet services up to 1 Gbps and Wave services up to 10 Gbps.

    "Every company's success, including yours and your end users, depends on smooth safeguarded operations and reliable performance," said Alberding, referring to wholesale and cloud providers. "FairPoint owns and operates its data centers, which have state-of-the art environmental controls, multiple layers of physical security and 24/7 monitoring for business continuity."

    FairPoint's wholesale business team will be on hand at the COMPTEL PLUS Spring 2015 Convention & EXPO from April 12-15, 2015, at the Gaylord Palms in Orlando, Florida to discuss data center services for wholesale customers. To schedule a time to meet with a wholesale account manager at the event, visit www.fairpoint.com/wholesale.

    Contact Angelynne Beaudry at aamores@fairpoint.com for photos of FairPoint's data center operations center in Manchester, N.H.

    About FairPoint Communications, Inc.
    FairPoint Communications, Inc. provides advanced data, voice and video technologies to single and multi-site businesses, public and private institutions, consumers, wireless companies and wholesale re-sellers in 17 states. Leveraging an owned, fiber-core Ethernet network -- including more than 16,000 route miles of fiber in northern New England -- FairPoint has the network coverage, scalable bandwidth and transport capacity to support enhanced applications, including the next generation of mobile and cloud-based communications, such as small cell wireless backhaul technology, voice over IP, data center colocation services, managed services and disaster recovery.

    Pratt & Whitney to Deliver First Entry Into Service Engine Parts Using Additive Manufacturing

    EAST HARTFORD, Conn., April 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- When Pratt & Whitney delivers its first production PurePower(R) PW1500G engines to Bombardier this year, these engines will be the first ever to feature entry-into-service jet engine parts produced using additive manufacturing. Pratt & Whitney is a United Technologies Corp. company .

    While Pratt & Whitney has produced more than 100,000 prototype parts using additive manufacturing over the past 25 years - and hundreds more to support the PurePower Geared Turbofan(TM) engine family's development - the company will be the first to use additive manufacturing technology to produce compressor stators and synch ring brackets for the production engines. Pratt & Whitney PurePower PW1500G engines exclusively power the Bombardier CSeries* aircraft family.

    Additive manufacturing, also called three-dimensional (3D) printing, builds parts and products one layer at a time by printers. In 3D printing, additive processes are used, in which successive layers of material are laid down under computer control. These objects can be of almost any shape or geometry, and are produced from a 3D model or other electronic data source.

    "Pratt & Whitney has been working with additive manufacturing since the 1980s, and we are looking forward to our upcoming milestone, when the first production PurePower PW1500G engines with parts produced through additive manufacturing will be delivered," said Tom Prete, Pratt & Whitney's Engineering vice president. "We are a vertically integrated additive manufacturing producer with our own metal powder source and the printers necessary to create parts using this innovative technology. As a technology leader, we are intrigued by the potential of additive manufacturing to support our suite of technologies and benefits to customers and the global aerospace industry."

    "Additive manufacturing offers significant benefits to the production of jet engines," said Lynn Gambill, chief engineer, Manufacturing Engineering and Global Services at Pratt & Whitney. "We have engine tested components produced through additive manufacturing in the PW1500G."

    In production tests, Pratt & Whitney has realized up to 15 months lead-time savings compared to conventional manufacturing processes and up to 50 percent weight reduction in a single part. The PurePower engine family parts will be the first product produced using 3D printing powder bed additive manufacturing.

    Related manufacturing technologies that will be used in the PurePower engine production include Metal Injection Molding, Electron Beam Melt and Laser Powder Bed Fusion (including Direct Metal Laser Sintering).

    Pratt & Whitney and the University of Connecticut are also collaborating to advance additive manufacturing research and development. The Pratt & Whitney Additive Manufacturing Innovation Center is the first of its kind in the Northeast region to work with metal powder bed technologies. With more than $4.5 million invested, the center will further advance Pratt & Whitney's additive manufacturing capabilities, while providing educational opportunities for the next generation of manufacturing engineers.

    Pratt & Whitney is a world leader in the design, manufacture and service of aircraft engines and auxiliary power units. United Technologies Corp., based in Hartford, Connecticut, provides high technology products and services to the building and aerospace industries. To learn more about UTC, visit its website at www.utc.com, or follow the company on Twitter: @UTC.

    This press release contains forward-looking statements concerning future business opportunities. Actual results may differ materially from those projected as a result of certain risks and uncertainties, including but not limited to changes in levels of demand in the aerospace industry, in levels of air travel, and in the number of aircraft to be built; challenges in the design, development, production and support of advanced technologies; as well as other risks and uncertainties, including but not limited to those detailed from time to time in United Technologies Corp.'s Securities and Exchange Commission filings.

    Nownews Digital Media Technology Reports FY 2014 Financial Results

    TAIPEI, April 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Nownews Digital Media Technology Co. Ltd. ("Nownews" or "the Company") (OTCQB: NDMT), a new media company that provides news, information, e-commence and multimedia platform service, today released its financial results of the fiscal year ended December 31, 2014.

    Fiscal Year 2014 Highlights

    --  Gross profit increased approximately $0.67 million, an increase of 154%.
    --  Gross margin was 38% for the year ended December 31, 2014 as compared to
    14% for the prior year.
    

    "We are glad to see the profitability of our advertising business is getting stronger, thanks to our strategic focus on the more profitable segments like internet advertising and marketing" said Alan Chen, Chairman of the Company, "This year we are keeping our focus on this part of our business, and looking for more cooperation with other media platforms to increase our international presence."

    Fiscal Year 2014 Results

    Net Revenue

    For the fiscal year 2014, Nownews reported net revenue of $2.93 million, a decrease of 9% from $3.23 million for the year 2013. The decrease was primarily due to the decrease in licensing revenue and E-commerce revenue, partially offset by the increase in advertisement revenue.

    --  Advertising
    

    During the fiscal year ended December 31, 2014, the revenue from advertising was $2.36 million, a 26% increase from $1.87 million for the year ended December 31, 2013. The increase was because the Company focuses on the more profitable internet advertising and marketing.

    --  Licensing
    

    Revenue from content licensing was $0.30 million for the year ended December 31, 2014, a decrease of 47% from $0.57 million for the year ended December 31, 2013. In 2014, the Company did not license as much content to Yahoo Taiwan, Inc. ("Yahoo Taiwan"), the Company's top customers for the past two years due to low profits. In addition, the Company terminated low-profit news editing services to Yahoo Taiwan, which services were supplementary to the licensing arrangements with Yahoo Taiwan.

    --  E-commerce
    

    Revenue from E-commerce was $0.25 million for the year ended December 31, 2014, a decrease of 65% from $0.71 million for the year ended December 31, 2013. The decrease was primarily attributable to suspension of the E-Commerce business in April 2014 due to continuous losses. The Company is currently in the process of evaluating and adjusting this line of business.

    --  Other
    

    Other revenue includes revenue from film/video editing services and licensing copyright to Chunghwa Wideband Best Network Co., Ltd. Other revenue was $0.02 million for the year ended December 31, 2014, a decrease of 75% from $0.08 million for the year ended December 31, 2013. The decrease was primarily due to the termination of editing services and decrease in licensing copyrights charged to Chunghwa Wideband Best Network Co., Ltd.

    Cost of Revenue

    Cost of revenue was $1.82 million for the year ended December 31, 2014, compared to $2.79 million for the year ended December 31, 2013, a decrease of $0.97 million, or 35%. The decrease was mainly due to a decrease of $0.48 million in cost of goods sold in E-commerce, a decrease in labor costs of $0.42 million due to the decrease in the number of employees in the year 2014 as a result of the Company's efforts to reduce operating costs and expenses.

    Gross Profit

    Gross profit increased approximately $0.67 million, an increase of 154% as compared to last year due to the substantial decrease in cost of revenue. Gross margin was 38% for the year ended December 31, 2014 as compared to 14% for the prior year.

    Selling Expenses

    Selling expenses decreased by 39% from $1.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2013 to $0.61 million for the year ended December 31, 2014. The decrease in selling expenses was primarily due to the decrease in advertisement expenses related to E-commerce and the decrease in labor costs due to decrease in the number of salespersons.

    General and Administrative Expenses

    General and administrative expenses decreased by 29% from $1.96 million for the year ended December 31, 2013 to $1.38 million for the year ended December 31, 2014. The decrease in general and administration expenses was principally due to the decrease in payroll resulting from reduction in the number of employees.

    Interest Expense

    Interest expense for the year ended December 31, 2014 was $25,103 compared to $25,267 for the year ended December 31, 2013, a decrease of 1%. The decrease in interest expense was primarily due to reduced bank loans incurred for the year ended December 31, 2014 as compared with the year ended December 31, 2013.

    Net Loss

    As a result of the above factors, the Company has net loss of approximately $0.70 million for the year ended December 31, 2014 as compared to net loss of approximately $1.71 million for the year ended December 31, 2013, representing a decrease of loss of approximately $1.01 million or approximately 59%.

    Cash, Liquidity and Financial Position

    As of December 31, 2014, cash and cash equivalents were $0.07 million, compared to $0.32 million at the end of 2013. The Company had a working capital deficit of $1.42 million at December 31, 2014, with $0.89 million of current assets and $2.31 million of current liabilities. The Company believes it can successfully secure financing to meet all working capital and capital expenditure needs for the next twelve months. However, there can be no guarantee that the Company will succeed in raising additional financing.

    As of December 31, 2014, long-term debt was $0.81 million.

    ICTC Group, Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2014 Results, Board Authorizes Additional 25,000 Share Repurchase

    NOME, N.D., April 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- ICTC Group, Inc. today announces its 2014 fourth quarter and full year earnings (see Attachment A). ICTC's operating subsidiaries, Inter-Community Telephone Company, LLC, a rural local exchange carrier ("RLEC"), and Valley Communications, Inc., a competitive local exchange carrier ("CLEC"), provide telecommunications services in southeastern North Dakota. ICTC's financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2014 are in the process of being audited by the Company's independent accounting firm. This process could result in adjustments to our preliminary fourth quarter and full year 2014 results.

    Fourth Quarter Results - During the fourth quarter of 2014, our revenues were $1,161,000, an increase of $185,000 or 18.9% from the fourth quarter of 2013. This increase was due primarily to the consolidation of our switching facilities in two communities, and to increased depreciation rates which were adopted during the fourth quarter to better reflect current industry standards and practice. EBITDA before corporate costs was $371,000 versus $326,000 in the fourth quarter of 2013, an increase of $45,000 or 13.8%. Corporate office expense decreased from $79,000 in 2013 to $70,000 in 2014 due to lower legal fees and accounting fees in 2014, partially offset by a $25,000 fee to CIBL, Inc. for management and regulatory consulting services.

    Regulated revenues were $909,000 compared with $755,000 in 2013, an increase of $154,000 or 20%. Non-regulated revenues were $252,000, compared with $221,000 in 2013, an increase of $31,000 or 14%. There was an operating loss of $37,000 as compared with an operating profit of $140,000 in the fourth quarter of 2013, a decrease of $177,000. During the fourth quarter of 2014, as noted above, the Company adjusted its 2014 depreciation rates to be more consistent with industry norms. This change resulted in an additional $184,000 of depreciation expense in the fourth quarter 2014 results.

    ICTC has substantial investments in three other telecommunications providers: Dakota Carrier Network, a state-wide North Dakota fiber optic network owned by North Dakota RLECs; and two providers of wireless communications services in southeastern North Dakota, North Dakota RSA # 3 and North Dakota RSA # 5, both operated by Verizon Wireless. These investments contributed $159,000 to ICTC's fourth quarter 2014 income before income taxes, as compared to $175,000 in 2013. These investments provided ICTC with cash distributions of $63,000 for the fourth quarter, as compared to cash distributions of $70,000 for the fourth quarter of 2013.

    Earnings per share were $0.18 during the fourth quarter of 2014 versus $0.61 in 2013. As with operating profit and net income, this decrease in earnings per share resulted primarily from higher depreciation expense.

    Net income in the fourth quarter of 2014 was $70,000 compared to $246,000 in 2013, a decrease of $176,000; again, this was due primarily to increased depreciation expense in 2014 of $184,000, net of an associated income tax benefit of $69,000.

    Full Year Results - ICTC finished 2014 with revenues of $4,063,000 compared with $3,853,000 for 2013, an increase of $210,000 or 5.5%. Prior to corporate costs, EBITDA was $1,459,000 in 2014 compared with $1,535,000 in 2013, a decrease of $76,000 or 5%. Earnings per share were $1.64 in 2014 as compared with $1.81 in 2013. ICTC currently expects that revenues and EBITDA before corporate costs will be approximately $4.1 million and $1.5 million in 2015.

    Capital Expenditures - Total capital expenditures were $1,170,000 in 2014 and $1,531,000 in 2013. These amounts include funds spent under our American Recovery and Reinvestment Act stimulus project. Our capital expenditures represent continued investment in our network infrastructure, particularly our broadband facilities. The expenditure amounts are net of grants received under the stimulus project and contributions in aid to construction received from our customers. Through December 31, 2014, the Company incurred unreimbursed costs of $481,000 under the stimulus project, of which $234,000 was reimbursed in February 2015 and the remainder is expected to be reimbursed during the second quarter of 2015. By extending fiber optic facilities further throughout our network and installing upgraded electronics, we greatly improved the speed and reliability of our broadband network and will continue to do so through 2015.

    Federal Regulation - In November 2011, the Federal Communications Commission ("FCC") ordered significant modifications to Intercarrier Compensation ("ICC") and the Universal Service Fund ("USF"), both of which provide revenues to the Company. Since that time, the FCC has issued a number of additional orders clarifying and modifying its ICC and USF mechanisms. Most recently, in April 2014 and March 2015, the FCC announced that it is making further reforms, the details of which are not yet available, that will impact companies such as ICTC. ICC and USF programs generate, on a combined basis, approximately 60% of our revenues. It is not possible to predict the impact these regulatory actions will have on the Company's future revenues at this time. We believe that government policy will continue to encourage and support communications services in rural areas, but there is no certainty that such support will be continued at historical levels. Because of this and the opportunities created by the internet and new technologies, we are developing unregulated high-speed services and seeking opportunities outside our franchised telephone service area, as well as expanding the products and services we provide in our traditional telephone business.

    Balance Sheet - As of December 31, 2014, ICTC had approximately $2,145,000 in cash and $2,555,000 in total debt, resulting in net debt of $410,000 (see Attachment B). This compares to net cash of $74,000 as of December 31, 2013. These figures exclude amounts of $481,000 at December 31, 2014 and $307,000 at December 31, 2013 recoverable under the stimulus program.

    Additional Repurchase Authorization - In March 2015, the Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of an additional 25,000 shares of the Company's stock. As previously announced, in November 2014 the Company's Board of Directors had authorized the repurchase of 25,000 shares of the Company's stock. Under that authorization, the Company has to the date of this Release repurchased a total of 20,290 shares at an average price of $19.46. There are currently 29,710 shares in total authorized to be repurchased by the Company on a discretionary basis.

    Business Initiatives for 2015 - ICTC is actively expanding its broadband capacities and other communications services. The Company is currently planning to extend its fiber optic facilities and the associated electronics to support enhanced communications services both within and outside its franchised telephone service territory, in growing North Dakota markets nearby.

    This release contains certain forward-looking information within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, including without limitation anticipated financial results, capital expenditures and corporate transactions.

    AURORA, Ohio, April 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- TCP International Holdings Ltd. ("TCP" or "the Company") today announced that its product validation review is proceeding as expected. The Company has completed testing on substantially all of its fastest moving SKUs. For the remaining SKUs, TCP expects to complete validation shortly. In addition, the Company affirmed that UL certified designs are available for all products and that products being shipped are UL certified.

    As previously announced, consistent with TCP's quality commitment, the Company voluntarily chose to conduct additional levels of quality control on its products. TCP engaged an outside testing firm to support these efforts, which, while ongoing, have affirmed the strength, quality and safety of TCP's product line.

    TCP issued the following statement:

    "The TCP team would like to thank TCP customers for the outspoken support and patience they have extended to us during this period. The support we have received from our customers - both new and existing, large and small - is a testament to TCP's products and talented team of more than 7,000 employees worldwide. Our customers can count on us to continue providing the superior service and quality, innovative lighting technology for which TCP has long been known."

    Sotheby's International Realty Brand Launches Newly Redesigned Website

    MADISON, N.J., April 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Sotheby's International Realty Affiliates LLC today announced the launch of its newly redesigned website, sir.com, which was built to showcase its network's listings in an immersive and visual way that is unique to the industry.

    http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnvar/20140311/MM81288LOGO

    "The new sir.com was created to tell the story of a home in a more editorial way, not the commoditized approach that can often be found in our industry," said Wendy Purvey, chief marketing officer, Sotheby's International Realty Affiliates LLC. "We believe the art of marketing a home is based on showcasing its soul, so every aspect of the new site works toward this goal."

    The design changes include an increased focus on full-screen, high-definition video throughout the site, from the homepage to property detail pages, to allow for a more immersive consumer experience. High-resolution photography also plays a more prominent role. The property detail pages feature: slideshows that tell a home's story via the captions, custom video, location overviews that provide insight into the local area via video and text, and a seller or expert quote that offers a personal view of the property.

    Consumers still can search for a home based on lifestyle and amenity but now have the ability to sort their results by various home features including pools, kitchens and views, and compare visual images of that feature among their search results.

    "At the foundation of the Sotheby's International Realty brand is our focus on lifestyle," said John Passerini, vice president of interactive marketing for the brand. "Our lifestyle search is more visual, and our focus on video and photography allows our affiliates to showcase the various lifestyles a home offers that cannot be properly articulated in words only. Our fully responsive site works on any mobile device and allows our network members to do what we believe they do best: uniquely showcase extraordinary homes around the world anytime, anywhere and in any language."

    The Sotheby's International Realty network currently has more than 16,500 sales associates located in approximately 760 offices in 60 countries and territories worldwide. Sotheby's International Realty listings are marketed on the sothebysrealty.com global website. In addition to the referral opportunities and widened exposure generated from this source, the network's brokers and their clients will benefit from an association with the Sotheby's auction house and worldwide Sotheby's International Realty marketing programs. Each office is independently owned and operated.

    About Sotheby's International Realty Affiliates LLC

    Founded in 1976 to provide independent brokerages with a powerful marketing and referral program for luxury listings, the Sotheby's International Realty network was designed to connect the finest independent real estate companies to the most prestigious clientele in the world. Sotheby's International Realty Affiliates LLC is a subsidiary of Realogy Holdings Corp. , a global leader in real estate franchising and provider of real estate brokerage, relocation and settlement services. In February 2004, Realogy entered into a long-term strategic alliance with Sotheby's, the operator of the auction house. The agreement provided for the licensing of the Sotheby's International Realty name and the development of a full franchise system. Affiliations in the system are granted only to brokerages and individuals meeting strict qualifications. Sotheby's International Realty Affiliates LLC supports its affiliates with a host of operational, marketing, recruiting, educational and business development resources. Franchise affiliates also benefit from an association with the venerable Sotheby's auction house, established in 1744. For more information, visit www.sothebysrealty.com.

    Extreme Networks Honored with Two Prestigious 2015 Manufacturing Leadership 100 Awards

    SAN JOSE, Calif., April 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Extreme Networks, Inc. , a leader in high performance networking, today announced that it has been honored with two Manufacturing Leadership 100 (ML100) Awards in the sustainability and innovative process categories. The winning initiatives include Extreme Networks' robotic Wi-Fi antenna testing process and sustainable packaging initiative. The recognition demonstrates Extreme Networks' commitment to delivering differentiated products and solutions to enterprise customers that reflect high value and quality, as well as sustainability and efficiency.

    http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnvar/20140602/93419

    "We are honored to be recognized by Frost & Sullivan's Manufacturing Leadership Council for our commitment to innovative and sustainable practices," said Brad Martin, vice president and chief quality officer at Extreme Networks. "We strive to manufacture best-in-class, high-performance network solutions that set the standard for a superior customer experience. Receiving these awards validates our efforts and success in supporting our customers."

    Extreme Networks' robotic Wi-Fi antenna testing process tests unique antenna and access point (AP) products in a simulated stadium installation to evaluate their effectiveness quickly and accurately, with emphasis on repeatability. The intent of the tests is to provide side-by-side comparisons of antenna arrangements, validating both the range and signal strength of the products.

    The sustainable packaging project deployed by Extreme Networks improves the carbon footprint for our customers while meeting customer expectations. The eco-friendly packaging scheme uses fewer and more sustainable materials, decreases transportation and production costs while increasing warehouse space.

    The ML100 awards ceremony will take place at the Manufacturing Leadership Summit Awards Gala, taking place June 2-4 at the Omni La Costa Resort and Spa in Carlsbad, CA.
