    STARBREEZE AND 505 GAMES ANNOUNCE COLLABORATION WITH ALCON ENTERTAINMENT, WARNER BROS. PICTURES AND LIONSGATE FOR EXCLUSIVE POINT BREAK DOWNLOADABLE CONTENT FOR PAYDAY 2 GAME

    STOCKHOLM, LOS ANGELES and SANTA MONICA, Calif., Dec. 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Starbreeze AB, an independent creator, publisher and distributor of high quality entertainment products, and 505 Games today announced that they will integrate characters and storylines from the upcoming action thriller Point Break into PAYDAY 2 as the result of a unique and exciting collaboration with Alcon Entertainment, Warner Bros. Pictures, and Lionsgate .

    The Point Break Heists and the Bodhi Character Pack for PAYDAY 2 will be released worldwide on December 3 in anticipation of the global release of Point Break, which opens in theaters beginning on December 25. The Point Break Heists DLC for PAYDAY 2 will retail at $6.99 and contain two all new heists - Beneath the Mountain and Birth of Sky. The Bodhi Character Pack DLC will be free for all PAYDAY 2 players and will welcome Bodhi to the gang of heisters.

    The unprecedented partnership between Starbreeze, 505, Alcon, Warner Bros. and Lionsgate builds upon a previous collaboration between Starbreeze and Lionsgate. The two companies worked together to integrate Lionsgate's popular John Wick film into PAYDAY 2 and subsequently developed the highly anticipated John Wick VR game, planned for release in Spring 2016.

    "Point Break has always been a huge inspiration for the PAYDAY games, so to be able to integrate the film's characters and storylines into PAYDAY 2 is a dream come true," said Bo Andersson-Klint, CEO of Starbreeze. "We previously worked closely with Lionsgate on the successful addition of their character John Wick as a member of the PAYDAY gang, so using that same business model, Lionsgate introduced us to Alcon and Warner Bros. to create two Point Break heists that we believe are some of the best to date."

    "In working with our partners at Starbreeze on the upcoming John Wick VR game, we realized that we had an opportunity to build on that success with Point Break while also embarking on an unprecedented collaboration with our colleagues at Alcon and Warner Bros.," said Lionsgate President of Interactive Ventures and Games Peter Levin. "As we continue to look for fun, exciting ways to integrate Lionsgate's IP into the gaming space, we believe that having the creative teams and IP owners work together with game developers is the ideal way to create the best experience for avid fans."

    "We look forward to an exciting collaboration with Starbreeze and 505 Games on this project, along with Lionsgate and Warner Bros.," said Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson, Co-Founders and Co-CEO's of Alcon Entertainment. "We believe this reimagining of Point Break lends itself to many platforms and gaming in particular as it will allow players to be a part of the action."

    The Point Break Heists include music from the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Point Break, available globally December 4th on ASG Records. As an extension of the collaboration, the lead single from the soundtrack, "Still Breathing," from Rock trio, Dig The Kid, is featured in the game's trailer and menus.

Parties in the United States and Canada can access the call by dialing +1 (888) 481-2877, using conference code 7487374. International parties can access the call by dialing +1 (719) 325-2177, using conference code 7487374.

    The webcast will be accessible on Ooma's investor relations website at http://investors.ooma.com for a period of one year.

International parties should call +1 (719) 457-0820 and enter conference code 7487374.

    Non-GAAP Financial Measures

    In addition to disclosing financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), this press release and the accompanying tables contain certain non-GAAP financial measures, including: non-GAAP net loss, non-GAAP net loss per share, non-GAAP gross profit and gross margin, non-GAAP operating loss, and Adjusted EBITDA. These non-GAAP financial measures exclude non-cash stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangibles, the change in the fair value of our convertible preferred stock warrants, as well as the write-off of non-cash deferred debt issuance costs, change in fair value of our acquisition-related contingent consideration and income tax benefit. These non-GAAP financial measures are presented to enhance investors' understanding of the results of Ooma's core business operations. Ooma considers these non-GAAP financial measures to be useful measures of the operating performance of the company, because they contain adjustments for unusual events or factors that do not directly affect what management considers to be Ooma's core operating performance, and are used by the company's management for that purpose. Management also believes that these non-GAAP financial measures allow for a better evaluation of the company's performance by facilitating a meaningful comparison of the company's core operating results in a given period to those in prior and future periods. In addition, investors often use similar measures to evaluate the operating performance of a company.

    Non-GAAP financial measures are presented for supplemental informational purposes only to aid an understanding of the company's operating results. The non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with GAAP, and may be different from non-GAAP financial measures presented by other companies. A limitation of the non-GAAP financial measures presented is that the adjustments relate to items that the company generally expects to continue to recognize. The adjustment of these items should not be construed as an inference that the adjusted gains or expenses are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring. Therefore, both GAAP financial measures of Ooma's financial performance and the respective non-GAAP measures should be considered together. Please see the reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measure attached to this release.

    Ooma is unable to reconcile the forward-looking projections of non-GAAP net loss and Non-GAAP EPS loss to GAAP net loss and net loss per share because the nature and amount of the constituent adjustments cannot be estimated at this time.

    Legal Notice Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

    This press release contains forward-looking statements under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. In particular, statements regarding future economic performance, finances, and expectations and objectives of management constitute forward-looking statements.

    KEMET Introduces KO-CAP(R) Reliability Assessment MethodFirst Reliability Testing Method Available for Polymer Electrolytic Capacitors

    GREENVILLE, S.C., Dec. 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- KEMET Corporation , a leading global supplier of electronic components, introduced its new KO-CAP(R) Reliability Assessment method, the first of its kind for polymer electrolytic capacitors.

    https://photos.prnewswire.com/prnvar/20151201/292219

    The T540 and T541 Commercial-Off-the-Shelf (COTS) Series are the only polymer electrolytic capacitors available today with failure rate options defined by this innovative testing criteria. Developed as a result of over ten years of research, the Reliability Assessment method utilizes accelerated voltage and temperature conditions applied to board-mounted samples to assess long-term device reliability. The failure rates available are B (0.1% per 1,000 hours), C (0.01% per 1,000 hours) and D (0.001% per 1,000 hours).

    This new Reliability Assessment method complements the successful T540 and T541 COTS Series KO-CAPs. These high performance capacitors are designed for decoupling and filtering applications that require very low equivalent series resistance (ESR). By utilizing an organic conductive polymer as the cathode plate of the capacitor, this technology results in low ESR, high ripple current capability and improved capacitance retention at high frequency. Such performance characteristics are ideal for various high reliability defense and aerospace applications such as radar, sonar, power supplies and guidance systems. KO-CAPs with the new Reliability Assessment method are available with rated voltages from 2.5 to 63 VDC, capacitances up to 1,500 uF, and ESR as low as 5 mW - all in surface mount packaging.

    Design engineers can now match the reliability requirements of their project to the appropriate failure rate. Traditional Weibull methods of assessing reliability are not suitable for polymer electrolytic capacitors and fall short of properly assessing lot-to-lot reliability. Prior to this release, this capability was only available through source control drawings, but is now easy to design in by adding the desired failure rate to the 13th character of the part number.

    For more information on KEMET's KO-CAP Reliability Assessment method, please visit www.kemet.com/KOCAP-ER.

    About KEMET
    KEMET Corporation is a leading global supplier of electronic components. We offer our customers the broadest selection of capacitor technologies in the industry, along with an expanding range of electromechanical devices, electromagnetic compatibility solutions and supercapacitors. Our vision is to be the preferred supplier of electronic component solutions demanding the highest standards of quality, delivery and service. KEMET's common stock is listed on the NYSE under the symbol "KEM." Additional information about KEMET can be found at http://www.kemet.com.

    Microchip Technology Provides Break-Out Of Organic Sales Growth Versus Acquisition Growth

    CHANDLER, Ariz., Dec. 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- - Microchip Technology Incorporated, a leading provider of microcontroller, mixed signal, analog and Flash-IP solutions, today announced that it is providing the break-out of its net sales derived from organic growth versus growth derived from acquisitions. Microchip has posted three slides that provide this break-out on the investor relations page of its website at www.microchip.com/investors.

    http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnvar/20141115/158835LOGO

    Steve Sanghi, Microchip's President and CEO, commented, "Over a six year period from CY2009 to CY2015, with our December 2015 quarter net sales projected at our guidance mid-point, Microchip's total net sales grew at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 17.3%, including acquisitions. Over the same period, excluding acquisitions, Microchip's net sales grew at a CAGR of 8.3%, versus the semiconductor industry's CAGR of 6.7%. Thus, Microchip's organic net sales grew at a higher rate than the industry over this period and our acquisitions augmented our organic growth, resulting in more than doubling our growth rate."

    Mr. Sanghi added, "We have also posted on our website a comparison of Microchip's results compared to the results of many of our microcontroller and analog/mixed signal competitors. Our organic net sales grew faster than all of them except for one, despite most of them also having acquisition growth. In fact, our total net sales grew at more than twice the rate of any of our competitors included in our analysis."

    Mr. Sanghi further added, "Our growth rate evidences the success of our "elbow-out" acquisition strategy that we have often shared with investors, where our organic sales growth is better than the market and acquisitions are adding further growth and not replacing the organic growth."

    "From an earnings perspective, our non-GAAP earnings per share grew at a CAGR of 17.3% over the same six year period. Additionally, the earnings per share derived from our organic growth excluding acquisitions grew at a CAGR of 11.6% per year," concluded Mr. Sanghi.

    There will be no conference call associated with this press release. Microchip's President and CEO, Steve Sanghi, is presenting at the Credit Suisse 19th Annual Technology, Media and Telecom Conference tomorrow, Wednesday, December 2, 2015. A live webcast and replay of the presentation will be available at www.microchip.com. As referenced above, please refer to the slides posted on our website for important additional information about our organic sales growth versus acquisition growth and other matters in this press release

    Cautionary Statement:

These statements involve risks and uncertainties that could cause our actual results to differ materially, including, but not limited to: any economic uncertainty due to monetary policy, political or other issues in the U.S. or internationally, any unexpected fluctuations or weakness in the U.S. and global economies, changes in demand or market acceptance of our products and the products of our customers; foreign currency effects on our business; the mix of inventory we hold and our ability to satisfy short-term orders from our inventory; changes in utilization of our manufacturing capacity and our ability to effectively manage our production levels; competitive developments including pricing pressures; the level of orders that are received and can be shipped in a quarter; the level of sell-through of our products through distribution; changes or fluctuations in customer order patterns and seasonality; our ability to successfully integrate the operations and employees from our acquisitions (including our recent acquisition of Micrel), retain key employees and otherwise realize the expected synergies and benefits of our acquisitions (including Micrel); our ability to continue to realize the expected benefits of our other acquisitions; the impact of any other significant acquisitions that we may make; our ability to obtain a sufficient supply of wafers from third party wafer foundries and the cost of such wafers, the costs and outcome of any current or future tax audit or any litigation involving intellectual property, customers or other issues; our actual average stock price in the December 2015 quarter and the impact such price will have on our share count; disruptions in our business or the businesses of our customers or suppliers due to natural disasters including any floods in Thailand), terrorist activity, armed conflict, war, worldwide oil prices and supply, Ebola or other public health concerns or disruptions in the transportation system; and general economic, industry or political conditions in the United States or internationally.

    Breithorn Capital Management Delivers Letter to the Board of Directors of Kulicke & Soffa Industries Outlining Recommendations for Unlocking Significant Shareholder Value

    NEW YORK, Dec. 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Breithorn Capital Management ("Breithorn"), a private investment manager and long term shareholder of Kulicke & Soffa Industries ("K&S" or the "Company") with beneficial ownership of approximately 1.2% of the Company's outstanding common stock announced that it has delivered a letter to the Company's Board of Directors.

    In the letter, Breithorn expressed that it believes K&S is deeply undervalued, and that there are clear opportunities for the Company to unlock significant value for shareholders.

    Breithorn also stated that it believes the Company should not make additional acquisitions and instead should immediately focus on further share repurchases.

    The full text of the letter follows:

    1 December 2015

    Garrett E. Pierce, Chairman
    Kulicke and Soffa Industries, Inc.
    23A Serangoon North Avenue 5, #01-01
    K&S Corporate Headquarters
    Singapore 554369

    Dear Members of the Board:

    Breithorn Capital Management ("Breithorn") beneficially owns approximately 1.2% of the outstanding shares of Kulicke & Soffa Industries, Inc. ("K&S" or the "Company"). Breithorn is a value-oriented investment manager with a long-term investment horizon, and has been a shareholder of K&S since April 2013.

    We have conducted extensive research on K&S and the markets in which it competes, and we appreciate the time and cooperation of the K&S management team during the process. We have concluded that the Company's stock trades at a deep discount to its intrinsic value. We believe this is due in part to misconceptions by investors regarding the Company's core wire bonding business and to lack of appreciation for the Company's growth potential in advanced packaging. However, we suspect that investors are also applying a valuation discount due to a lack of confidence in the ability of management and the Board of Directors ("Board") to allocate capital in an optimal manner. In this regard, we believe a clear opportunity exists within the Company's control to unlock significant shareholder value.

    In our opinion, K&S is a very attractive business, given its dominant market share in wire bonding equipment and high historical returns on invested capital over the cycle. As we shared in our presentation, dated October 27, 2015 (www.breithorn.com), we estimate the Company currently has normalized earnings power of approximately $1.00 per share. In addition, we think it has significant growth potential in the advanced packaging market. Specifically, we believe the Company's new thermo-compression products could ultimately generate an incremental $0.50 of earnings per share.

    Separately, K&S has a massively overcapitalized balance sheet. As of the fiscal year ended October 3, 2015, the Company held $482 million of net cash. Management estimates that the Company requires an operating cash balance of only $75 million to run the business and manage down-cycles. This implies that the Company holds excess cash of $407 million, or $5.75 per share, which amounts to 49% of its current market capitalization.

    We believe K&S stock is currently trading far below its intrinsic value. After subtracting $5.75 per share of excess cash from the stock price of $11.81, K&S trades at a mere 6.1x our normalized earnings power estimate for the existing business, and 4.0x our estimated earnings power including growth from thermo-compression. Given the high quality of this business, we believe the fair value for K&S stock is nearly double its current price.

    K&S stock has a depressed valuation for several reasons. First, we believe there is an unfounded fear that the Company's core business is in secular decline. The concern is that wire bonding, the dominant interconnection technology used in semiconductor packaging for over 50 years, will be supplanted by newer alternatives such as "flip chip" bonding. We see little evidence that wire bonding is in decline. Wire bonding continues to grow on an absolute basis and maintains a dominant unit market share of roughly 80%, due to significant cost advantages which we expect will persist in the future. Accordingly, we are convinced that the Company's recently reported year-over-year decline in wire bonding equipment sales is cyclical rather than secular.

    Second, we believe the Company's stock price does not reflect its growth opportunity in advanced packaging. The Company has established a broad foothold in the advanced packaging and advanced surface mount technology markets, which could enable growth in excess of the semiconductor capital equipment market. Furthermore, K&S has developed a next generation thermo-compression bonder that compares favorably to the competition, based on our research. Together, we believe these initiatives have the potential to significantly expand the Company's earnings power and mitigate the risk of market share loss in the wire bonding business.

    Third, we believe the stock price does not adequately reflect the value of the Company's excess cash. In our opinion, this is due to a pervasive fear that management will either squander this cash on poor acquisitions or indefinitely hoard cash without good reason. As the chart below illustrates, over the last 10 years the Company's share price has exhibited only modest appreciation, despite significant earnings power improvement and dramatic cash accumulation. Management deserves credit for excellent operational execution during this period, as K&S market share in wire bonding has increased and profit margins have expanded. In contrast, the Company's approach to capital allocation has left much to be desired.

    Regarding capital allocation, management has repeatedly expressed that its primary focus is on making acquisitions for reasons including diversification. We strongly disagree with this approach, given the risk of capital misallocation and lack of attractive targets. Moreover, we do not believe that management's acquisition track record inspires confidence. While it is too early to definitively assess the recent $98 million acquisition of Assembleon Netherlands BV ("Assembleon"), early results are not encouraging. The post-transaction decline in Assembleon's revenue run-rate suggests that this acquisition was poorly timed, and that stated earnings accretion and revenue growth goals will not be achieved. If management is intent on diversifying the business, we see ample opportunity to do so through organic growth of the Company's broad product line.

    Given the current valuation of K&S, we think it is extremely unlikely that any acquisition could generate a return comparable to repurchasing the Company's depressed shares, and we struggle to understand why management and the Board have not acted more aggressively to unlock value for shareholders by doing so. Perhaps if management and the Board owned more than a trivial amount of the Company's stock, they would be better aligned with the interests of shareholders who have endured subpar returns for years.

    We believe further large share repurchases would be in the best interest of shareholders. In our view, K&S has the capacity to repurchase $250 million in stock without impairing its financial position or strategic flexibility. To avoid repatriation taxes on foreign cash, repurchases could be funded with debt raised in the U.S. As we illustrated in our presentation, we believe that at the current share price this would result in immediate earnings accretion and stock price appreciation without assuming any multiple expansion. Separately, we believe multiple expansion is likely once management demonstrates improved capital allocation discipline.

    Another option for the Board to consider is a sale of the Company to a strategic buyer with foreign operations not subject to repatriation taxes, who can pay full value for the Company's cash. This could achieve management's goal of diversification in a more shareholder-friendly manner, provided that an acquirer pays a very large premium to the current share price to offer fair value to existing shareholders. We anticipate K&S will become an increasingly attractive acquisition candidate as its new advanced packaging products gain traction.

    We look forward to hearing back from management and the Board regarding their plan to unlock shareholder value in K&S.

    Sincerely,

    Breithorn Capital Management LLC

    Philips announces expanded indications for its SkyFlow X-ray imaging software at RSNA 2015

    -Advanced algorithm provides high-quality images of all anatomies for a grid-less workflow to enhance diagnostic confidence

    -Grid-less workflow with SkyFlow reduces need for exam retakes caused by grid misalignment and the resulting unnecessary x-ray exposure

    AMSTERDAM, Dec. 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Royal Philips [http://www.usa.philips.com/] today announced SkyFlow [http://www.usa.philips.com/healthcare/product/HCNOCTN339/skyflow], an X-ray imaging software that produces high-contrast images for all anatomies in situations where clinicians decide not to use a grid, at the 2015 Radiological Society of North America Annual Meeting (RSNA) [http://www.rsna.org/Annual_Meeting.aspx](1). SkyFlow is Philips' first digital imaging solution providing grid-like contrast improvement and enhanced confidence for grid-less radiography, which improves clinician's workflow and supports "first-time-right imaging" by decreasing the need for retakes due to misalignment.

    SkyFlow is a proven technology for bedside chest exams and will be expanded to include other anatomies. The imaging software reduces the effect of scattered radiation by using an algorithm that requires no operator input and automatically adjusts contrast enhancement based on the amount of scatter, giving clinicians a crisper image to improve their diagnostic confidence. A study found that radiographers using SkyFlow technology in a grid-less workflow for chest exams saw an average of 34 seconds of time savings per examination compared to workflow with a grid(2). SkyFlow can be used for all patient types, including bariatric cases.

    "Philips understands the growing need of healthcare providers to increase cost savings while improving patient care," Robert Cascella, executive vice president and CEO, Philips Imaging. "SkyFlow helps providers meet these challenges by simultaneously increasing productivity and patient comfort through shorter examination times and more comfortable positioning without a grid."

    High quality images, improved clinician efficiency
    Often radiographers face challenging work environments due to varying patient conditions, tight spaces in the exam room, and the tangle of tubes and cords to navigate. Clinicians often choose not to use a grid in imaging to save time related to grid alignment and ensure patient comfort. Historically, grid-less imaging resulted in scattered radiation, causing a significant loss of image contrast, making it difficult for radiologists to make an accurate diagnosis. However, grid-less workflow with SkyFlow technology provides grid-like image contrast and enables faster, less error-prone workflows than other non-grid options.

    "With SkyFlow, our chest images which don't use a grid are of a very high quality, and we look forward to seeing this enhancement used for other body parts and applications," said John Berns, Radiologic Technologist, Sint Maartenskliniek Hospital, Nijmegen, the Netherlands [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQSWi2k9oTc].

    On Wednesday, Dec. 2, at RSNA in Chicago, Ill., Detlef Mentrup, PhD, Clinical Scientist from Philips, a lead developer of SkyFlow, and Roman Fischbach, MD, head of the Radiology and Neuroradiology Department, Asklepios Klinik Altona Hospital, Germany, will join other experts in a "Lunch and Learn" session open to event attendees and media. The session will cover how digital scatter correction offers a novel, patient-adaptive image processing that provides grid-like contrast enhancement for mobile radiographs without using an anti-scatter grid, and its impact on clinical image quality and workflow. This event will be held from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. CT in the South Building, Room S403B.

    Philips' X-ray imaging processing technology, including SkyFlow, is available through Philips' MobileDiagnost wDR and DigitalDiagnost solutions. Philips is showcasing its entire diagnostic X-Ray suite in booth #6736 at RSNA through Dec. 4.

    BALTIMORE, Dec. 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Verizon customers in Baltimore are enjoying all of the benefits of America's most reliable network, according to the Metro RootScore(R) Report, conducted by Seattle-based RootMetrics. The results are in, and Verizon won the Overall RootScore award in Baltimore, scoring 98.2, and also was ranked 1(st) in reliability, speed, data, and call performance.

    Scores are based on RootMetrics testing performed from October 17 through October 23, 2015. The company evaluated all four U.S. wireless providers in six network performance categories: overall, reliability, speed, data, call, and text performance.

    RootMetrics uses scientific methods to conduct their rigorous testing regimen, based on where people actually use their mobile devices. Using off-the-shelf, unaltered smartphones, RootMetrics staff drove more than 1,130 miles and included 39 indoor locations to measure and analyze key performance indicators which provide an unbiased characterization of network attributes in and around the city of Baltimore.

    "RootMetrics' thorough testing process replicates the real-world experience of wireless customers," said Kate Jay, Verizon spokesperson. "This latest award corroborates the results of our own internal network testing and confirms that Verizon delivers the best network performance for customers."

    In addition to winning RootMetrics' Metro RootScore Report for Baltimore, Verizon also received the #1 ranking in RootMetrics' State Score Report for Maryland for the first half of 2015. Verizon's wireless network was recognized by RootMetrics as outranking the competition with the most wins or ties by state in the first half of 2015, with 47 Overall Performance RootScore Awards, including the state of Maryland.

    Verizon invested more than $10 billion last year to improve and fortify its network which covers 98% of the U.S. population. The company continues to enhance its network by deploying new technology such as small cells, distributed antenna systems as well as XLTE, which uses Verizon's AWS (Advanced Wireless Services) spectrum to double 4G LTE bandwidth in cities coast to coast, with faster peak speeds and greater capacity than before. This means that more wireless interactions can occur with more people in the same location, so more people can send photos, download videos, surf the internet, and use real-time navigation.

    Verizon announces availability of world's first Cat1 LTE network features for IoT, Expands its ThingSpace PlatformEarly adopter drone trials for agriculture, integration of Bug Labs, and developer event among new IoT developments

    NEW YORK, Dec. 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Building on its global strategy to simplify the Internet of Things (IoT), Verizon today announced new developments that further expand its IoT portfolio including:

    --  The availability of world's first Cat1 LTE network features for IoT -
    ideal for use cases that were previously developed for 2G. Verizon's LTE
    network now makes the value proposition for connecting Cat1 IoT
    applications on LTE in the U.S. as affordable as alternative
    technologies and leverages LTE's reliability.
    --  Equipping developers with additional tools on its ThingSpace platform
    with an expanded set of application program interfaces (APIs) and
    application enablement platforms (AEPs) including the integration of Bug
    Labs' dweet(TM) APIs and freeboard(TM) visualization engine. These new
    tools enable developers to quickly and easily connect their devices to
    the Internet, publish the data and create real-time interactive
    dashboards and control panels visualizing that device data.
    

    Today's announcement comes on the eve of an IoT developer event to be held at Verizon's Innovation Center in Waltham, Mass., where a wide-range of coders will get a hands-on look at the ThingSpace platform. Participating event partners include Renesas, Arrow Electronics and Bug Labs.

    "Our goal is to help accelerate market adoption for IoT by making the ecosystem as accessible as possible for developers to bring their solutions to market," said Mark Bartolomeo, vice president, IoT Connected Solutions at Verizon. "Between our ThingSpace APIs and an expanded set of Cat1 devices deployed on our LTE network we are providing this largely underserved market with the tools needed for endless IoT solutions to be deployed at scale."

    Chipset platforms currently certified on Verizon's LTE network include Sequans and Altair. Earlier this year, Encore networks certified the world's first Cat1 IoT router solution on Verizon's LTE network.

    "By incorporating Bug Labs' AEP capabilities into ThingSpace, it's the first time that developers and customers can use Verizon to manage their devices at both the application and network levels - allowing for the creation of new innovations to be delivered to more people," Bartolomeo added.

    Peter Semmelhack, founder and CEO of Bug Labs commented: "We are thrilled to be working with Verizon to simplify the development of IoT applications and products. Our dweet and freeboard platforms were specifically designed to make it easy to get started and see results quickly. As part of Verizon's ThingSpace platform, developers now have a complete set of tools to go from prototype to commercial launch quickly and efficiently."

    Making agriculture even smarter

    Verizon continues to identify new opportunities to work with the broader IoT ecosystem to enhance its vertical market solutions. Recently, the company began an early adopter drone trial with PrecisionHawk, a market leader in unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) and aerial data analysis, to develop a mapping and analytics solution for the agriculture industry.

    The Verizon/PrecisionHawk UAV pilot was deployed at Hahn Estate, a family-owned winery based in the Santa Lucia Highlands, in California's Monterey County. Aerial data collected to run specific crop algorithms could help vineyard owners identify disease, estimate yield and harvest more effectively. LTE-enabled UAVs are currently not part of the trial.

    "By demonstrating the value of high-resolution UAV data and analysis, we can help growers in both agriculture and viticulture such as Hahn Estate, make more informed in-season decisions to assist with resource management and increased yield year-over-year," Bartolomeo continued.

    Verizon provides global IoT coverage in more than 100 countries with plans to expand its footprint in the coming months to nearly 200 countries.

    Mind Solutions Shareholder Update 2015

    SAN DIEGO, Dec. 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Mind Solutions, Inc. , is providing this update to shareholders as it pertains to the core business and publicly traded common stock price. The Company is current on all SEC filings and is diligently pressing forward to increase sales for the fourth quarter, 2015. The Company has initiated Phase 1 of the marketing plan, which is primarily driven by online sales. Banner ads for NeuroSync, ( The world's smallest Brain-Computer-Interface) appear on high traffic websites such as Facebook and Google and are generating sales through www.TheNeuroSync.com as well as through www.Amazon.com . The Company plans to implement Phase 2 of marketing next quarter, which will include video commercials in addition to an increase in online advertising.

    The Company's common stock price has taken a hit in recent weeks, despite the completion and launch of NeuroSync. This is due largely in part to Funders converting their stock and selling into the market. The capital received from these Funders was crucial to complete development of NeuroSync and bring the product to market. In most cases, these small investment banking firms convert their investment to common stock after six months and sell in the open market for a profit. This dynamic provides a disconnect between the underlying business and the price of the common stock. The Company's business is moving forward independent of the common stock price, with the goal of becoming the best selling BCI on the market.

    Management has been cost conscious and has waived salaries for the past five months in order to allocate funds to the completion of the product and marketing. Office space is provided at no cost to the Company and additional support is provided by independent contractors rather than through full time employees. With sales of NeuroSync now underway, the Company anticipates a reduction in capital needed going forward and is diligently pursuing better financing terms. The Company appreciates the support of its shareholders and is very optimistic of the future of NeuroSync and the direction of the Company.
