HIVE Blockchain Technologies Ltd. (TSX.V:HIVE) (OTCQX:HVBTF) (“HIVE”) announces that the transition of the Company’s GPU chips in Sweden to Blockbase Group DWC-LLC (“Blockbase”) from Genesis Mining (“Genesis”) is progressing on schedule and early results are showing improvements in efficiency and performance at the Swedish facility. Nicolás Chaparro, CEO of Genesis Mining Iceland ehf. and Genesis Mining’s Regional Manager – Nordics, has continued to be extremely helpful throughout the migration. The Company is pleased to announce that the transition is not expected to require a shutdown of the equipment or the facility and the transition is scheduled to be completed prior to the end of September.

“We are very happy with the pace of transition of our GPU chips in Sweden to Blockbase and the improved performance we are seeing,” said Frank Holmes, Interim Executive Chairman and Interim CEO of HIVE. “The software deployed by Blockbase is showing consistent performance enhancements as we migrate chips from Genesis. We continue to accumulate newly minted Ethereum coins mined at the facility and we are on-track to complete the cutover before the end of September. The fact that Blockbase’s software and its engineers have been able to seamlessly migrate chips to their platform without meaningful downtime is a testament to Blockbase’s expertise and the advancements implemented into their next gen software.”

HIVE also announces that it expects to file its annual financial statements and accompanying management’s discussion and analysis for the financial year ended March 31, 2019 (collectively, the “Annual Filings”) on or before September 29, 2019. As a result of the delayed Annual Filings the Company will have a delay in the filing of its interim financial statements, management’s discussion and analysis, and the related certifications for the period ended June 30, 2019 (“Interim Filings”), which had a filing deadline of August 29, 2019 . HIVE will continue to provide biweekly status updates on the delay of filing its Annual Filings and Interim Filings.

HIVE confirms that since it announced a delay of its Annual Filings (the “Filings Notice”) there is no material change to the information set out in the Filings Notice that has not been generally disclosed and there has been no failure by the Company in fulfilling its stated intentions with respect to satisfying the provisions of the alternative information guidelines set out in NP 12-203.

Supply Chain Management Association Becomes Supply Chain Canada

Published

on

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

At its AGM yesterday, the Supply Chain Management Association™ announced its name change to Supply Chain Canada™. The association also launched a new website as part of an overall rebranding initiative.

“The new name and look are part of a transformation that we have undertaken as the association enters its second century,” said Christian Buhagiar, President & CEO of Supply Chain Canada. “Today’s supply chains are dynamic and fast-paced. The association for Canada’s supply chain professionals must reflect that.”

Through the rebranding process, the association has also acquired a meaningful new logo and tagline, “Professionals advancing the future.”

The logo’s maple leaf design not only conveys our nationality; it also represents the connectedness of the supply chain, illustrating the networks and collaboration that are so essential to supply chain success, and the interconnectedness of the association’s federation, institutes and members. Its connected dots can be seen, as well, as the complex route of a global supply chain.

“Professionals advancing the future” succinctly communicates both the professional status of supply chain practitioners and their forward-looking perspective. It is intended to:

  1. Elevate the perception of supply chain practitioners as professionals, acknowledging the value they bring to their organizations and to the Canadian economy.
  2. Encompass the several ways that the association and its members “advance” – in their personal careers and knowledge, and for the profession, the country and the economy.
  3. Express the future focus of the association – with its emphasis on the development of skills and policies – and of the supply chain itself, now so focused on AI, blockchain, robotics, automation and so on.

The new website, now at www.supplychaincanada.com, is enhanced with a modern look and new functionality that enables location-based content for users across Canada.

These changes are not simply style enhancements. They are part of a larger plan to strengthen the association. Supply Chain Canada consolidates the organization’s brand across the country under a single name in every province and territory, removing any possible confusion from its federation structure. “The unity that this will ensure will help us improve recognition in the sector, and thereby provide stronger leadership to the Canadian supply chain community,” said Buhagiar.

The association’s transformation began in 2018 with a new vision and mission, as well as an ambitious three-year strategic plan. The new name and rebranding announced yesterday are part of a larger evolution that will continue over the next two years with the introduction of new and revised educational offerings, new initiatives to engage with industry, more value-added membership benefits and more.

Export Portal CEO Ally Spinu will be adding her take on the alignment of trade facilitation and sustainable development goals at a session at the 9th Asia-Pacific Trade Facilitation Forum (APTFF) in New Delhi.

“The Asia-Pacific region is a wealth of unexplored opportunities which lay deep in the communities of local businessmen and women that just need support in bringing their amazing products to the world to see and buy,” Ms. Spinu said. “I am looking forward to this event and being a part of the change that will help local businesses from this part of the world sell their products globally. I deeply believe that shifting attention to developing SMEs is the major change international trade and local economies have been waiting for.”

This year’s APTFF will focus on how digital and sustainable trade facilitation measures and practices can bring prosperity in the Asia-Pacific region. The forum will investigate opportunities from trade digitalization for sustainable progress of the area and challenges ahead in materializing such opportunities. APTFF will feature panel discussions as well as interactive and informative sessions. These sessions will allow participants to share experiences and perspectives on different aspects of trade facilitation, including trade finance, cross-border eCommerce and paperless trade, transit, innovative application of emerging technologies, and more. APTFF will bring relevant regional initiatives and implementation cases to each session, making it a unique opportunity to share knowledge and practical lessons. The forum will also include many side-events providing a more in-depth exploration of the pertinent trade facilitation issues.

“Agricultural products are the fastest category and industry growing within Export Portal, and I can say that is just natural that SMEs around the world are actively looking for new ways for selling their products around the world,” Ms. Spinu said. “The role of innovative technologies such as Export Portal is crucial in helping these SMEs integrate within the world supply chain of food with ease and at optimal costs. I want to explain the current issues existing within SMEs’ integration in international trade due to the high cost involved and how technology slowly but surely changes this.”

Export Portal’s trade goals align directly with the purpose of this session, as its international B2B trade platform is an affordable and all-encompassing solution for SMEs all over the world. The features that are available and being developed on Export Portal, such as the panel of experts (EP+), the educational hub (EPU), and data flow insights (EPI), provide SMEs with the resources they need to trade effectively on an international scale safely, securely, and efficiently.

The Digital and Sustainable Trade Facilitation for Regional Prosperity session is co-organized by ADB, ESCAP, Ministry of Commerce, India and Confederation of Indian Industry and will be held on Wednesday, September 18, from 9:00 to 10:45 AM.
