    Yingli Announced Hotspot Free Module at PV Expo Japan 2017It also highlighted PANDA Bifacial module at the trade show

    BAODING, China, March 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --Yingli Green Energy Holding Company Ltd. ("Yingli" or "Yingli Solar") , one of the world's leading solar panel manufacturers, announced a Hotspot Free Series Module at the PV Expo 2017, which was held in Tokyo, Japan from March 1-3, 2017. The Hotspot Free module can eliminate potential safety risks such as fire and material degradation, and ensure better safety, better module reliability and higher returns.

    The Hotspot Free technology is based on a concept whereby each cell is protected by a bypass diode. In any case that the current of a single cell doesn't match the rest of the string, for example because that cell is shaded, the bypass diode will be activated and will ensure that the other cells can still work properly and prevent the affected cell from heating up. Beside being a safety feature, less heat also means less stress for the materials, leading to a longer lifespan of the whole module, which improves performance ratio and increases yield for the investors.

    Yingli also highlighted their PANDA Bifacial module at the trade show. The PANDA Bifacial module can generate power on the front and rear sides, which, for example, has been proven by a 50MW top runner project in Datong, Shanxi province, in China. The PANDA Bifacial module is made of two layers of 2.5mm thick low-iron tempered glass, which replaces the conventional back sheet and glass structure. Specifically, the PANDA Bifacial module integrates the technology from Yingli's state-of-the-art PANDA n-type monocrystalline solar cells, which can generate power not only on the front side, but also on the rear side by using reflected photons that hit the module on the back side*. Therefore, the power yield of the PANDA Bifacial module will increase by up to 30% compared to a monofacial standard module.

    The PANDA Bifacial module possesses strong durability and resistance to PID (Potential Induced Degradation) and performs well in various harsh environments of high temperature and humidity, salt mist and sand. With a maximum system voltage of 1500 Volts (V), the PANDA Bifacial module can improve system performance and reduce the balance-of-system costs by up to 25%.

    "It is wonderful that we have such high performance modules. They can not only generate more power but also enhance safety and increase returns. We will do our best to promote them everywhere in Japan to give our customers the best products and highest returns," commented YAMAMOTO JOJI, Master Director of Yingli Green Energy Japan. "Yingli will always be committed to reducing the cost of solar power generation and making solar electricity affordable and accessible for all through continued technology innovation."

    *Depending on the environmental condition of the installation.

    Lockheed Martin Long Range Anti-Ship Missile Wins 2017 Aviation Week Laureate Award

    ORLANDO, Fla., March 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Lockheed Martin's Long Range Anti-Ship Missile (LRASM) was selected as a 2017 Aviation Week Laureate Award winner in the Defense category.

    The annual awards by the Aviation Week Network recognize the extraordinary efforts of both individuals and teams in aviation, aerospace and defense industries. The awards ceremony, celebrating its 60(th) year, took place on March 2 in Washington, D.C.

    LRASM was nominated by the Aviation Week editorial staff for the technical development and execution of the program, meeting an urgent operational need by our warfighters.

    "It is a great honor to be recognized with this award," said Mike Fleming, Lockheed Martin LRASM program director. "Standing together with our U.S. Navy customer leadership on this very important program, we are committed to bringing warfighters the most capable weapon solution available."

    LRASM is designed to detect and destroy specific targets within groups of ships by employing advanced technologies that reduce dependence on intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance platforms, network links and GPS navigation in electronic warfare environments. Once operational, LRASM will play a significant role in ensuring military access to operate in open ocean/blue waters, owing to its enhanced ability to discriminate and conduct tactical engagements from extended ranges.

    LRASM is a precision-guided, anti-ship standoff missile based on the successful Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile - Extended Range (JASSM-ER). It is designed to meet the needs of U.S. Navy and Air Force warfighters in anti-access/area-denial threat environments. The air-launched variant provides an early operational capability for the Navy's offensive anti-surface warfare Increment I requirement to be integrated onboard the U.S. Air Force's B-1B in 2018 and on the U.S. Navy's F/A-18E/F Super Hornet in 2019.

    Chevrolet Launches Unlimited Data PlanChevy is the first mass-market automaker to offer a prepaid unlimited data plan

    DETROIT, March 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Starting today, Chevrolet owners in the U.S. with an in-vehicle OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot([1]) will now have access to an unlimited prepaid data plan for only $20 per month([2]). Chevrolet will offer this groundbreaking plan enabled by AT&T across its entire retail lineup.

    Last year, Chevrolet owners in the U.S. used more than 4 million gigabytes of data. Chevrolet data usage has increased exponentially as owners have come to appreciate the ability to stream video on a tablet, send email on a laptop or play online using a gaming console in their vehicles([1]), and now customers can utilize the full potential of their OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot without worrying about running out of data.

    "We have contractors bidding jobs in their Silverados, families streaming movies in their Suburbans and Malibus and everyone tapping into the cloud for music," said Alan Batey, president of GM North America and global head of Chevrolet. "With the most affordable unlimited 4G LTE data plan in the auto industry, the widest availability of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and new connected services like OnStar AtYourService, our momentum can only grow."

    Last year alone, Chevrolet customers used nearly 200 percent more OnStar 4G LTE data in their vehicles compared to 2015. In the second half of 2016, Chevy owners used almost as much data as they had the previous 24 months since OnStar 4G LTE launched.

    To put this data usage in perspective, Chevrolet owners and their passengers streamed the equivalent of more than 17.5 million hours of video in 2016.

    "We're pleased to deliver this special unlimited data plan to Chevy owners," said Chris Penrose, president, IoT Solutions, AT&T. "Accessing the internet through AT&T's 4G LTE Wi-Fi, passengers now can access all of their content and enjoy endless entertainment on the go."

    As the first automaker to offer 4G LTE connectivity across its entire retail portfolio, Chevrolet has sold more than 3.1 million OnStar 4G LTE-connected vehicles since June

    2014 and has more vehicles on the road equipped with 4G LTE than any other automaker.

    Today, along with the 4G LTE connection enabled by AT&T, the OnStar Basic Plan comes standard on all new Chevrolet retail models. The Basic Plan includes select remote vehicle services and the OnStar AtYourService marketplace via the myChevrolet mobile app[2] among other features.

    Hisense to Establish American Internet-TV Operation Center Covering 2.6 Million TV Subscribers

    ATLANTA, March 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Hisense will copy successful its operating system in China, and set up an American Internet-TV operation center.

    Hisense has 2.6 million TV subscribers in the US, and the figure is projected to increase to exceed 6 million by 2018, and it will cover 20 million American households (calculated by average number of American resident).

    Hisense, the multinational consumer technology manufacturer and one of the largest television brands in the world, was phenomenal, ranking third in global shipments of LCD TVs and No.1 in the Chinese market, where Hisense has held that spot for 13 consecutive years. Hisense had 23.43 million Internet-TV users, and the number of daily active users only in China has reached 11 million in February. Hisense has already truly become the biggest Internet-TV platform in China.

    Netflix is the content partner with Hisense TV in the US and its user activity ranks the top compared with other partners. The primary aim of Hisense was to enrich and differentiate the content and thereby increase the sales competitive power of Hisense TV.

    Netflix, one of the American biggest streaming media operators, has a strict requirement for its certification on audiovisual effects, display technology and image data processing technology. Hisense is the only company that has received NRTV certification in China, winning the content partner Netflix.

    Based on huge shipments of Hisense TV, Hisense has put the television content operation into its business. The company Juhaokan, which is an individual corporation owned by Hisense Group, took on the business section. Hisense will close the company's series A financing in 2017 by the shareholding structural reform. Setting up the American internet-TV operation center relates to its capital investment.

    The complete set of law institutions of consumer protection and copyright protection of the United States will bring a huge challenge for Hisense.

    IBM and Goldcorp Team to Bring Watson to the Mines

    Use of IBM Watson cognitive technology a first for the Canadian mining industry

    CALGARY, March 3, 2017 /CNW/ - IBM today announced they are working with Goldcorp Inc. to bring IBM Watson technology to the Canadian mining industry for the first time. The Vancouver-based gold producer - one of the largest gold mining companies in the world - will initially use IBM's cognitive technology for its exploration targeting efforts in its Red Lake, Ontario mine.

    A number of Watson services will be used to analyze vast amounts of data - from drilling reports to geological survey information - to help geologists determine specific areas to explore next, reach high-value exploration targets faster, calculate geological models with more certainty, and interpret the growing volume of data as geologists drive new discoveries. This will improve the ability of geologists to surface new information from existing data and deliver regionalized insights that will assist in the exploration process.

    "The ability of IBM Watson to understand, learn, reason, and interact will have a considerable impact on the Canadian mining industry by enabling geologists to make more data-driven decisions, faster," said Mark Fawcett, a partner with IBM Global Business Services. "In industries such as natural resources where knowledge professionals are working with a rapidly growing volume of data, Watson is helping to evolve how professionals operate, make decisions, drive value, and gain competitive advantage."

    "Goldcorp has always been focused on responsible mining practices," said Paul Harbidge, senior vice president of exploration at Goldcorp. "By coupling our exploration and mining expertise with IBM Watson's cognitive strength, we will be able to make the exploration targeting process more efficient, ultimately generating higher yields and creating less environmental impact. Geologists will be able to more accurately determine the next target, enabling our teams to locate undiscovered gold deposits that may have previously required multiple drills to find."

    "This is a strategic initiative for both IBM and Goldcorp," said Dariusz Piotrowski, director, IBM Cognitive & Analytics Solutions Development. "We are taking the IBM's analytics platform tested and proven in the oil and gas industry and adapting it to the mining industry, demonstrating that cognitive subsurface analytics can lead to performance enhancement across the entire natural resources sector."

    IBM will be demonstrating how IBM Watson will support exploration targeting at #DisruptMining, a marquee event to be held on Sunday, March 5(th) during the annual Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada ("PDAC") conference at The Carlu in Toronto. The event, co-hosted by Goldcorp and Integra Gold, will showcase disruptive and exponential technologies with the potential to revolutionize the future of mineral exploration, mining, and more.

    IBM Canada is committed to helping build a strong Canadian economy with cognitive systems such as Watson. The IBM Natural Resources Solution Centre in Calgary demonstrates this commitment by offering an environment where business leaders from the petroleum and mining industries can explore solutions to specific business problems by sharing ideas and developing proofs of concept and pilot projects.

    LUXEMBOURG, Mar 03, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

    Millicom International Cellular S.A. ("Millicom") and Bharti Airtel Limited ("Airtel"), today announced that they have, through their respective subsidiaries, entered into an agreement for Tigo Ghana Limited and Airtel Ghana Limited to combine their operations in Ghana. As per the agreement, Millicom and Airtel would have equal ownership and governance rights in the combined entity.

    Cypress Semiconductor Files Definitive Consent Solicitation to Eliminate Cumulative Voting, Protecting Stockholders from Founder and Former CEO with Self-Serving Agenda to Regain InfluenceSends Letter Urging Stockholders to Vote with the WHITE Consent CardAligns Cypress' Voting Structure with over 97% of the S&P 500Sets the Record Straight on False or Misleading Statements by Mr. Rodgers

    SAN JOSE, Calif., March 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Cypress Semiconductor Corporation ("Cypress") today announced that it has filed definitive consent solicitation materials with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") seeking to amend the Company's Second Restated Certificate of Incorporation to eliminate cumulative voting.

    In conjunction with the filing, Cypress is mailing a letter to its stockholders along with the definitive consent solicitation statement, which includes a WHITE consent card, allowing stockholders as of the February 27, 2017 record date to submit consents by March 24, 2017, subject to extension by the Board of Directors.

    The full text of the letter is as follows:

    March 3, 2017

    Dear Fellow Stockholder,

    We are sending you the enclosed Consent Statement and accompanying WHITE consent card to seek your approval to eliminate cumulative voting. As you may know, cumulative voting permits a stockholder with a minority stake in a company to have an outsized influence on the composition of its board of directors and to push an agenda with which a majority of stockholders disagree. For example, even if stockholders holding as much as 87% of Cypress' outstanding shares do not support a particular director nominee to serve on the board, that nominee can still be elected to a seven-member board, which is what Cypress has, if a stockholder cumulates the remaining 13% of the votes. This is the reason why cumulative voting is exceptionally rare and in place at less than 3% of the S&P 500. Taking this step will align Cypress with 97% of S&P 500 companies.

    Cypress' Board of Directors believes that it needs to take this action now to protect stockholders from former CEO T.J. Rodgers' efforts to regain boardroom influence to promote his personal agenda. As evidenced by our recent financial results, Cypress' 3.0 strategy is taking hold and we are positioning the Company for long-term growth by focusing on the fast-growing automotive, IoT and industrial segments. This consent solicitation is a necessary step to preserve that momentum and ensure Cypress remains well positioned for the future.

    The Board determined that it needed to transition Mr. Rodgers out of Cypress as CEO in April 2016 and as a Director in August 2016, enabling the Company to move beyond the founding CEO and accelerate our 3.0 strategy. Having successfully made that transition, we cannot let Mr. Rodgers now take advantage of an extremely unusual voting provision to stop our progress and put the best interests of our other stockholders at risk. Mr. Rodgers' personal agenda, including his pursuit of a baseless lawsuit and a distracting proxy contest, is potentially value-destructive. We need to take immediate steps to prevent a minority stockholder, whose vision for Cypress is no longer appropriate for today's realities, from seeking to advance his agenda by replacing two standing Board members with his hand-picked representatives. Mr. Rodgers' agenda could include actions that we believe would not be supported by - or be in the best interests of - the majority of our stockholders.

    We also think it is important to set the record straight with respect to several misstatements recently made by Mr. Rodgers in his press releases and lawsuit.

    --  In February 2016, Cypress was evaluating a range of potential
    transactions and made the strategic decision to narrow its focus on
    Internet of Things businesses, and accordingly determined it would not
    move forward with Lattice or other non-IoT opportunities.  As part of
    this process, Cypress' Board of Directors, in consultation with the
    Company's financial and legal advisors, evaluated a potential
    transaction with Lattice and ultimately decided not to pursue this
    transaction.  This decision was made when Mr. Rodgers was still CEO and
    a member of Cypress' Board.  Additionally, following a final outreach by
    Lattice's financial advisor, Cypress' Chief Financial Officer again
    declined to pursue a transaction in September 2016, consistent with the
    Company's previous decision to focus on IoT.
    --  Mr. Bingham officially joined Canyon Bridge in December 2016 - more than
    a month after Canyon Bridge announced its acquisition of Lattice.  Mr.
    Bingham reached an understanding to join Canyon Bridge's founding team
    in October and officially became a partner in December 2016.  Mr.
    Bingham discussed his role at Canyon Bridge with Cypress' Board and
    outside counsel prior to joining the firm.  The Cypress Board evaluated
    whether there was a conflict of interest and determined there was none.
    --  Mr. Bingham was not involved in Canyon Bridge's efforts to source the
    Lattice transaction, perform due diligence or negotiate the terms.  Eric
    Benhamou, Cypress' Lead Independent Director, together with the
    Company's outside counsel, confirmed these facts.
    --  Mr. Rodgers, as a member of Cypress' Board of Directors, voted with the
    Board to unanimously approve Mr. Bingham's appointment as Executive
    Chairman and his compensation, which Mr. Rodgers now calls "excessive
    and unnecessary."  Furthermore, Mr. Bingham's compensation was
    established by the Board working with an independent compensation
    advisor.
    

    Simply put: Don't allow Mr. Rodgers to regain influence in the boardroom to promote his personal agenda; act promptly to sign and return the WHITE consent card today. If you have any questions about executing or delivering your WHITE consent card or require assistance, please contact our consent solicitor, Okapi Partners at (212) 297-0720 or toll-free at (877) 285-5990.

    On behalf of Cypress' Board of Directors, we thank you for your continued support and we look forward to executing our 3.0 strategy to deliver value to you, our stockholders.

    Sincerely, Eric A. Benhamou Hassane El-Khoury Lead Independent Director President and CEO

    Quantum Corporation and VIEX Capital Advisors Sign Agreement to Reconstitute Quantum Board to Consist of a Majority of New Directors

    SAN JOSE, Calif., March 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Quantum Corp. today announced that it has reached an agreement with VIEX Capital Advisors, LLC, which owns approximately 11 percent of outstanding shares of Quantum's common stock, to reconstitute the Quantum board of directors with a majority of new, independent directors over the next several months. Specifically, Quantum has committed to identify, within the next 90 days and subject to VIEX's approval, three new, independent and qualified directors to be appointed to the board following the company's fiscal 2016 Annual Meeting of Stockholders to be held on March 31, 2017 (the "2016 Annual Meeting").

    Quantum and VIEX have agreed that the new independent directors will be appointed as soon as possible after the 2016 Annual Meeting in accordance with a specific vetting and approval process outlined below. The new directors will be part of a seven-person slate of nominees presented to stockholders for election to the board later this year at the fiscal 2017 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the "2017 Annual Meeting") to be held in August 2017. In addition to the new directors, the nominees at the 2017 Annual Meeting will be current board members Paul Auvil III, Gregg Powers and Clifford Press, and new board member Raghavendra Rau. With Mr. Rau and three new independent directors joining what will be a seven-person board, the company will have a reconstituted board consisting of a majority of new directors. The company has committed to hold the 2017 Annual Meeting not later than Aug. 31, 2017.

    Paul Auvil III, chairman of the board, stated, "We are pleased to have reached an agreement with VIEX that we collectively believe will help us deliver long-term value to all Quantum stockholders and reinforces the company's position as a reliable long-term partner for its customers. As we continue to focus on executing against our strategic plan, which has driven strong financial results in our current fiscal year, we look forward to reconstituting our board with new, highly qualified, independent directors to help us work cooperatively towards accelerating our positive momentum and building a bright future for our stockholders."

    Eric Singer, founder and managing member of VIEX, stated, "With this agreement, we believe that the company will have the broad-base support of stockholders that we believe is integral to maximizing value. VIEX has been laser-focused on enhancing stockholder value and appreciates that the company agrees the best way forward is to reconstitute the board with a majority of new directors. We appreciate the constructive involvement of Gregg and Paul and have full confidence that they, together with the other members of the reconstituted board, will be fully aligned with stockholders. We look forward to working with the reconstituted board to leverage Quantum's inherent strengths and industry-leading positions to take advantage of market dynamics and build on its momentum."

    The 2016 Annual Meeting
    Quantum and VIEX have agreed that stockholders will get to vote to elect the following seven individuals at the 2016 Annual Meeting:

    Current board members

    --  Paul Auvil III, chairman
    --  Jon Gacek, president and CEO
    --  Gregg Powers
    --  Clifford Press
    --  David Roberson
    

    New members

    --  John Mutch
    --  Raghavendra Rau
    

    Current Quantum board members Robert Andersen, Louis DiNardo, Dale Fuller and David Krall will not stand for re-election at the 2016 Annual Meeting. As part of the agreement, VIEX will vote all of its shares in favor of all seven of the board's nominees at the 2016 Annual Meeting.

    Mr. Auvil added, "On behalf of the board, I also would like to thank Robert Andersen, Louis DiNardo, Dale Fuller and David Krall for their many contributions and dedication to Quantum over the past several years."

    Appointment of Three New Independent Directors
    In addition, under the terms of the agreement, the Quantum board immediately will retain Korn Ferry International to commence a search for three new, independent and qualified directors. The primary focus will be recruiting and appointing new directors who possess data storage expertise, including at least one new director who has cloud storage software experience. Further, the company will seek to add at least one new director who is qualified to serve as chair of the board's Audit Committee and one director who is qualified to serve on the Leadership and Compensation Committee. These directors ultimately will replace three of the directors being nominated for election at the 2016 Annual Meeting.

    Director Selection Process
    Quantum and VIEX have agreed to a specific process for the selection and appointment of the three new directors, as follows:

    --  Messrs. Powers and Press will run the selection process and will be
    responsible for interviewing the director candidates.
    --  Messrs. Powers and Press will consult with Mr. Auvil once they have
    agreed on a candidate that meets the identified criteria.
    --  Following that consultation, Messrs. Powers and Press will notify VIEX
    about a selected candidate and provide an opportunity for VIEX to
    interview him/her and decide whether to approve the candidate for
    presentation to the full board. VIEX will not unreasonably withhold its
    consent.
    --  Upon VIEX's approval, a candidate will be presented to the full board
    for review and approval, and the directors will have an opportunity to
    meet the candidate in advance.
    --  If approved by the full board, the candidate will be appointed as a
    director immediately.
    --  The new directors as they are elected will replace Messrs. Mutch, Gacek
    and Roberson in that order. Mr. Gacek will remain president and CEO.
    

    Timing of Appointment of New Directors
    Quantum and VIEX have agreed that two of the new independent directors shall be seated no later than 60 days following the date of the settlement agreement and that the third new independent director shall be seated no later than 90 days following the date of the settlement agreement.

    The 2017 Annual Meeting
    Quantum has committed to hold the 2017 Annual Meeting in August 2017 and agreed to not delay the 2017 Annual Meeting past Aug. 31, 2017. At the 2017 Annual Meeting, stockholders will have the opportunity to vote for the election of the reconstituted board.

    VIEX Standstill Agreement
    Subject to earlier termination under certain circumstances, VIEX has agreed to standstill provisions through the next two Quantum annual meetings: the 2016 Annual Meeting to be held on March 31, 2017 and the 2017 Annual Meeting to be held in August 2017. After the 2017 Annual Meeting, the VIEX standstill will expire.

    The full text of the agreement between Quantum and VIEX will be included as an exhibit to a current report on Form 8-K, which will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

    Quantum stockholders are not required to take any action at this time.
