Nuri Corrects Misleading Information in Response to Apivio Systems Inc.’s Directors’ Circular

/EINPresswire.com/ — VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(Marketwired – Feb 8, 2017) – Nuri Telecom Company Limited (“Nuri“) mails a letter to shareholders of Apivio Systems Inc. (“Apivio”) to correct misleading information disclosed in Apivio’s directors’ circular filed in connection with the all cash offer being made by 1101324 B.C. Ltd. (the “Offeror“), a wholly owned subsidiary of Nuri. The letter is as follows:

Letter to Shareholders of Apivio Systems Inc.

YOU HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO REALIZE IMMEDIATE VALUE FOR YOUR APIVIO SHARES

February 8, 2017

Dear Fellow Apivio Systems Inc. shareholders:

This is an exciting time for shareholders of Apivio Systems Inc. (“Apivio” or the “Company”) as you have an opportunity to realize immediate liquidity for your shares under the PREMIUM ALL CASH OFFER being made by 1101324 B.C. Ltd (the “Offeror”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Nuri Telecom Company Limited (“Nuri”).

Today, Apivio’s position in the competitive landscape is tenuous and I am writing to encourage you to determine for yourself, whether our offer to acquire all of the outstanding common shares (the “Common Shares”) of Apivio at a price of CAD$0.40 per Common Share on an all cash basis (the “Nuri Offer”), is in your best interest and in the best interests of Apivio.

The board of directors (the “Board”) of Apivio has imprudently recommended rejection of the 51% premium all cash offer by Nuri, in their directors’ circular (the “Directors’ Circular”). As we have heard from many shareholders, Apivio’s reasons for rejection are weak and appear to be focused on delaying shareholders from tendering to the Nuri Offer. The information below highlights key facts to help you understand why it is advantageous to tender to the Nuri Offer.

FICTION REALITY
The Directors’ Circular claims that the Nuri Offer is “opportunistic” and “does not represent full and fair value for Nuri”. This claim is false. The Nuri Offer Represents Fair Value, Offers a Significant Premium and Provides Immediate Liquidity
The Nuri Offer represents a significant premium of 51% to the closing price of the Common Shares on January 16, 2017, the day prior to the announcement of the Nuri Offer, and a premium of 49% to the volume weighted average trading price over the 30 trading days ending January 16, 2017.
Importantly, the size of the premium under the Nuri Offer was determined by benchmarking the Enterprise Value/EBITDA multiples of other public companies of a similar size to Apivio (including public companies that are both smaller and larger than Apivio). The Enterprise Value/EBITDA valuation metric is the primary metric used to gauge value amongst companies like Apivio and was used by Nuri to ensure that the premium in the Nuri Offer represented fair value for shareholders.
Rather than being “opportunistic” – the Nuri Offer, in addition to offering a significant premium to Apivio shareholders, is a welcome and necessary source of liquidity.
The Directors’ Circular paints a promising picture of Apivio’s growth trajectory and operational efficiencies. However, this is only half the story. Operational Issues at Apivio are Compounded by Slowing Growth
The Directors’ Circular outlines that during the time Rob Bakshi, the current chief executive officer of Apivio, executed direction over the Company, Apivio achieved an increase in gross margins from over 10% to just over 17% (down from a peak of just over 18%). However, the Company continues to struggle with a low level of profitability. The thin gross margins only highlight the marginal level of Apivio’s business – after a 70% increase in gross margins, Apivio remains barely profitable and makes little sense for any buyer who is unable to realize cost synergies. This also impairs Apivio’s options for a sale of the business in the future.
The Directors’ Circular also suggests that Apivio’s growth is on an upward trajectory. To illustrate this point, the Directors’ Circular disclosed a chart highlighting its past growth in unit sales of VOIP phones in South Korea. Shareholders must be aware that this chart implies that sales have already peaked and are currently flat (1,072,164 units were sold in 2015 and, based on the implied annualized total, 1,020,611 units were sold in 2016).
The Board, in the Directors’Circular, suggests that it is in the process of considering “strategic alternatives” to the Nuri Offer. The Board Has Been Looking for “Strategic Alternatives” or a “White Knight” for Some Time and Nothing Seems to Be Forthcoming
Nuri first engaged the Board in friendly discussions about the possibility of a strategic acquisition in August 2016. These discussions continued through the fall and after such discussions failed, Nuri submitted the Nuri Offer on January 17, 2017.
The Board, in the Directors’ Circular, suggests that it is now in the process of considering “strategic alternatives” to the Nuri Offer. The fact of the matter is that the Board began considering “strategic alternatives” many months ago and their failure to solicit a competing bid simply means that there are no strategic alternatives or a white knight available to them. More importantly, it means the market believes that the Nuri Offer represents the best offer available to the Board and Apivio shareholders.
Shareholders should ask themselves, what happens to the share price should the Nuri Offer not proceed?
The Directors’ Circular states that the Nuri Offer “undervalues future growth” of Apivio and states that the “focus in the coming years will be to maximize sales expansion in North America.” Despite Promises to Shareholders and Investors, the Company Has Failed to Execute on Its International Growth Plan
Apivio has already spent years trying to develop higher margin products.
According to the Directors’ Circular, the current CEO was first approached to “help develop international markets” back in 2009 yet despite years of concerted effort on the development, sales and marketing of two new products intended for the North American market, including the support and assistance of global partner NEC Corporation of Japan, Apivio has managed no more than a rounding error in unit sales outside of South Korea.
While Nuri understands it is difficult to introduce new products into new markets (Nuri currently and successfully operates in 19 countries around the world), time has run out and Apivio’s shareholders need liquidity.
Apivio makes reference to “potential” future success. Considering Apivio’s slow track record to date, how much longer should Apivio’s shareholders wait for such “potential”?

Don’t risk missing this opportunity. Tender your shares today and realize the premium and liquidity which has long avoided Apivio shareholders.

Sincerely,

Song Man Cho, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Nuri Telecom Company Limited

The Nuri Offer expires on May 2, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. (Toronto Time)
If you have any questions regarding the Nuri Offer or how to tender shares, please call our Information Agent and Depositary, Laurel Hill Advisory Group at 1-877-452-7184 (416-304-0211 collect outside North America), or by email at assistance@laurelhill.com.

The words “believe”, “expect”, “anticipate”, “contemplate”, “target”, “plan”, “intends”, “continue”, “budget”, “estimate”, “may”, “will”, “schedule” and similar expressions identify forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements include, among other things, statements regarding competitive challenges that will be faced by Apivio, the future growth prospects of the Apivio business, and whether Apivio will be able to identified and present to its shareholders strategic alternatives that such shareholders might find to be more desirable than the Offeror’s present offer. Forward-looking statements are based upon a number of estimates and assumptions made by the Offeror in light of its experience and perception of historical trends, current conditions and expected future developments, as well as other factors that the Offeror believes are appropriate in the circumstances. While these estimates and assumptions are considered reasonable by the Offeror, they are inherently subject to significant business, economic, competitive, political and social uncertainties and contingencies. Many factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied in any forward- looking statements made by, or on behalf of, the Offeror. Such factors include, among other things, risks relating to additional financing requirements, unanticipated technological developments, operating risks, business competition, production risks, and regulatory restrictions. Readers are cautioned that forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future outcomes and, accordingly, investors are cautioned not to put undue reliance on forward-looking statements due to the inherent uncertainty therein. Forward-looking statements are made as of the date of this letter to shareholders, or in the case of documents incorporated by reference herein, as of the date of such document, and, except as required by the applicable securities laws, the Offeror disclaims any intent or obligation to update publicly such forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or results or otherwise.

Top Travel Insurance Claims Revealed by Squaremouth

ST. PETERSBURG Fla., Feb. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — For many travelers, feeling comfortable with the claims process is just as important as coverage or price when buying a travel insurance policy. Leading travel insurance comparison site, Squaremouth, compiled information from its providers to reveal the most common, most expensive, and most often denied travel insurance claims.

The Most Common Claim
The most common travel insurance claim in 2016 came from travelers needing to cancel their trip.

According to Brandi Morse, Claims Director for Tin Leg Travel Insurance, nearly one-third of claims paid in 2016 were for Trip Cancellation. Likewise, about 80% of travel insurance policies sold on squaremouth.com are Trip Cancellation style policies.

„Most travelers looking for Trip Cancellation coverage are concerned about becoming sick and being unable to travel, or a family member becoming sick before their trip,” said Squaremouth spokesperson Megan Singh. „Most cancellation policies also provide coverage if a terrorist attack occurs at their destination, which has become a common concern.”

Expert Tip: Don’t be a no-show! Cancel with your airline, hotel, and tour company as soon as possible. During the claims process, your insurance provider will contact your travel suppliers to confirm that you didn’t take the trip or receive a refund.

The Most Expensive Claim
Medical Evacuation was the most expensive claim in 2016, with claims often exceeding $10,000. This benefit covers transportation to the closest hospital, and can even cover the expenses to return home. In extreme cases, this may require a specific type of air ambulance.

„Depending on how far the member needs to be transported and where they’re located, the cost of an emergency medical evacuation can cost up to $170,000,” according to the iTravelInsured Claims Department at International Medical Group.

Expert Tip: Squaremouth recommends a policy with at least $100,000 per person in Medical Evacuation for international travel. For travelers going to a more remote location or on a cruise, that recommendation increases to $250,000 per person.

The Most Denied Claim
Travelers filing claims for their delayed bags were the most commonly denied in 2016, according to Jason Schreier, CEO of APRIL Travel Protection.

Travelers often misunderstand the purpose of this benefit and submit Baggage Delay claims thinking they are owed the benefit amount for the inconvenience they experienced, Schreier said. However, the benefit is designed to reimburse the cost of clothing or other essential items purchased while travelers wait for their bags to arrive.

Expert Tip: Read your policy to understand what items you are covered for. Then, keep all receipts for any clothing, toiletries, or other essentials you purchase while your luggage is lost or delayed. Without receipts, you cannot be reimbursed.

Increase in Long Distance Travelling to Boost the Global Semi-Automatic Motorcycles Market Through 2021: Technavio

LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The global semi-automatic motorcycles market is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 21% during the forecast period, according to Technavio’s latest market research.

In this market research report, Technavio covers the market outlook and growth prospects of the global semi-automatic motorcycles market for 2017-2021. The market is further categorized into two segments based on transmission type, which are dual clutch transmission (DCT) and other transmissions. The other transmissions segment dominated the market with close to 84% of the market share in 2016.

“Semi-automatic motorcycles are easier to ride as the riders need not engage the clutch while shifting gears. The adoption of motorcycles by baby boomers and female riders is increasing in developed regions like North America,” says Siddharth Jaiswal, a lead automotive manufacturing research expert from Technavio.

Technavio’s automotive research analysts segment the global semi-automatic motorcycles market into the following regions:

  • EMEA
  • Americas
  • APAC

In 2016, with a market share of close to 46%, EMEA emerged as the market leader in the global semi-automatic motorcycles market, followed by the Americas with over 40% and APAC with a little over 14% of the total market share.

Semi-automatic motorcycles market in EMEA

The demand for semi-automatic motorcycles is growing due to the comfort offered to the rider. Also, the increased penetration of scooters will compel individuals in the region to prefer clutch-less systems. The semi-automatic motorcycles market in EMEA is expected to grow at a CAGR of more than 18%.

The presence of BMW Motorrad provides prospects for semi-automatic motorcycle market in the region as the company has BMW Gear Shift Assistant Pro as fitment in selected variants. Germany is the prime market for the company, followed by the US. Also, Ducati, which has developed the DQS system for clutch-less operation, has a strong presence in Europe. Italy, Germany, France, and the UK are the notable markets for the Ducati, with Italy witnessing 53% growth in sales during 2015.

“The other factor that is crucial for wide adoption of the clutch-less motorcycles in Europe is the preference for two-wheelers instead of a car, due to high traffic and less pollution. People across Europe depend on two-wheelers for their daily commute to and from the workplace,” says Siddharth.
