FTX Trading Bankruptcy: Protecting Your Company’s Interests

NEW YORK, NY, Feb 2, 2023 – (ACN Newswire) – Zuber Lawler is representing entities who received investments from Alameda Research and FTX Ventures. Alameda Research and several other FTX-related entities have filed bankruptcy proceedings in Delaware. These multiple filings are all being administered under one matter, In re FTX Trading, USBC Case No. 22-11068.



Most first and second day motions have been heard and either have been granted or are currently pending. Things are moving forward.

On January 18, 2023, FTX debtors moved for an order authorizing and approving procedures for a sale or transfer of what they have termed as "de minimis assets."

FTX debtors define "de minimis assets" as investments and/or interests held by FTX debtors, including Alameda Research, in privately held companies, which (according to FTX debtors) can be easily separated from the debtors' core operations, will not disrupt the core operations, and will generate less value to the estate than other assets. FTX debtors state that the de minimis category includes approximately 185 investments made for $1 million and below, approximately 75 investments made between $1 million and $5 million each and approximately 40 investments made between $5 million and $25 million each.

Notably, FTX debtors state that they are in the process of a "strategic review" of the de minimis assets, including the potential for repurchasing of debtor interests by investees or other investors in these investments.

Although they have not identified these assets specifically, FTX debtors wish to have the court approve an established and expedited procedure for the sale/transfer of these types or category of assets, without the need of moving the court or getting court approval for each sale, but with the oversight of the Official Committee. Put in other words, they wish to get authorization to proceed with these individual sales "off line," and without the need of going through the motion procedure for each specific asset or asset group.

If Alameda Research or any other FTX entity invested in your company, that investment will likely be categorized as a "de minimis asset," subject to this motion, and will now be up for sale through the bankruptcy process. Through that process, you may be asked (compelled) to make public otherwise confidential information in order to facilitate the public auction or sale of those securities or assets. You may also be at risk of a competitor (or other unsuitable purchaser) buying an interest in your company, and in doing so, potentially obtaining other information and management rights. Even without such a sale of assets, you may now have questions around who you may need to provide information and notices to on an on-going basis, as well has who you may need to obtain consent from in order to take actions subject to restrictive covenants in your investment documents. The situation is even more complicated for issuers of SAFTs or other digital assets that may be subject to inconsistent regulation as a security (or not) across various jurisdictions (since the location of the purchaser may impact whether the SAFT/token issuer is subject to US securities law).

Zuber Lawler is in a unique position to provide the described representation. We have represented a large number of clients with operations across the entire scope of distributed ledger technology. Our clients include token issuers (fungible and non-fungible), digital asset platforms and providers of related services, as well as traditional companies (and government entities) who look to understand and enter the digital asset space. A large number of our clients are not domiciled in the United States and we are extremely familiar with the concerns these clients face. In fact several of our existing clients will be part of the ad hoc group. While we cannot make any promise of any particular result, we expect that we will be better positioned to provide the representation described above than any other firm in the United States.

If your company sold investment assets to Alameda Research or FTX Ventures, please reach out to Josh Lawler at Jlawler@zuberlawler.com to set a time for a short video conference to discuss specifics relating to your situation at no charge.

Drilling at Congress Gold Mine Project Returns as high as 14.9 g/t Gold over 1.5m

Vancouver, BC, Feb 1, 2023 – (ACN Newswire) – Casa Minerals Inc. (TSX: CASA) (OTC Pink: CASXF) (FSE: 0CM) (the "Company" or "Casa") is pleased to announce the assay results of the initial exploration at its Congress Gold Mine Project in Yavapai county, Arizona, USA. Casa's work included compilation of historic data and drilling of ten holes with total length 6,828ft HQ Diameter. Results of the field program exceeded expectations, with all the drill holes intersecting the Niagara and Congress Veins extensions on the property and yielded several noteworthy gold intercepts and long intervals of strong gold enrichment.


Figure 1: Congress Gold Mine Project compilation map

Figure 2: Congress Gold Mine Project – Section 2 – 2'

Figure 3: Congress Gold Mine Project – Section 5 – 5'


The highest gold intercepted in phase one, 2022 drilling campaign:
– CCG-004 14.9 g/t over 1.5 meters, as part of a larger intercept of 3.5 g/t over 10.7 meters
– CCG-004 9.3 g/t over 3 meters.

Three distinct areas of gold potential have been identified, two of which were revealed by previous drilling and one is newly discovered, and named for convenience, Congress z1, z2 and z3, respectively. These results demonstrate significant exploration potential of the property.

The following map illustrates the identified and confirmed Congress z1, z2 and z3:

Figure 1: Congress Gold Mine Project compilation map
https://images.newsfilecorp.com/files/1750/153170_8eed1009d4d8f8cb_001full.jpg

Casa's diamond drilling program tested possible extensions of the formerly-productive Congress and Niagara vein structures and nearby areas. Cores were examined, recorded and sampled with the supervision of personnel from MineMappers, LLC, of Marana, Arizona and Mark Osterberg, ((PhD., P.G., Wisconsin), R.G. (Arizona), RMSME, a qualified registered consulting geologist in the state of Arizona.

Prior to sampling, cores were recorded, photographed and logged for rock types and structures, then halved by sawing: one half was submitted to an independent, ISO 9000 registered commercial analytical laboratory, with initial processing at the lab's Tucson, Arizona, facility and final analysis in Vancouver, Canada. The remaining half-core was retained in a secure storage facility on the property where it is available for further examination. Core handling procedures followed industry-standard QA/QC methods to ensure integrity of analytical data.

Selected gold intercepts are depicted in Table 1:
https://www.acnnewswire.com/docs/Multimedia/Low_Table202302011.jpg

Casa's extensive database of Congress property information is from several sources, including public archives, records of previous operations and Dubois family records. Table 2 is a compilation of some of the significant gold intersections from those records. Data in this news release from earlier sources has not been reviewed or verified by a Qualified Person and should not be relied upon in any evaluation of the Congress Mine.

Selected historic gold intercepts are tabulated in Table 2:

Casa Minerals Inc. owns ninety percent (90%) interest in the Congress gold mine from 40 feet depth and beyond, subject to a 1.5% Net Smelter Royalty (Arizona, USA).

Job Market in Malaysia Thrives with 65% Increase in Retail Hiring: foundit Insights Tracker

KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 1, 2023 – (ACN Newswire) – Malaysia recorded a robust 21% year-on-year growth in e-recruitment activity in December '22 compared to the same month a year ago, according to the foundit Insights Tracker (fit), formerly published as Monster Employment Index (MEI). The growth is attributed to the country easing travel restrictions and opening its borders. The company Monster APAC & Middle East was rebranded as foundit in 'December 2022.

The Index stands at 76 with 3% month-on-month growth, driving a spree in hiring activity in December '22. According to fit, the job market has shown noteworthy growth month over month, projecting a continuous demand in the job market. Moreover, over the last three months, there has been a robust 10% growth in hiring across sectors, indicating a persistent demand in the labour market.

The retail industry experienced an impressive 65% increase in hiring activity year-over-year, primarily due to robust retail sales and an upward trend in consumer sentiment. The easing of Covid rules and regulations, fast-growing retail business, along with borders reopening to boost import/export and resume travel have aided the boost in retail jobs. Similar trends were observed in the hospitality sector, where job demand increased significantly by 55%. With a 34% increase in hiring activity, the BFSI sector also maintained its upward trend.

Commenting on job trends for December 2022, Sekhar Garisa, CEO, foundit APAC & ME, said, "The job market in Malaysia is showing strong and sustained demand, as reflected in the impressive growth numbers reported by the foundit Insights Tracker. This is a testament to the country's success in easing travel restrictions and reopening its borders, which has led to a surge in demand across various sectors, particularly in retail, hospitality, and BFSI. The overall picture is of resilience and growth, even though some sectors have experienced difficulties due to global economic uncertainty. We believe that this trend will persist in the upcoming months."

Other sectors that showed encouraging growth in December '22 are Logistic, Courier/ Freight/ Transportation, Shipping/ Marine (+32%), Oil and Gas (+1%), Production/Manufacturing, Automotive and Ancillary (+2%) and Engineering, Construction and Real Estate (+2%) sector from the year-ago level. The advertising, Market Research, Public Relations, Media and Entertainment industry also saw tremendous growth (+15%) in December 22, led by a surge in digital marketing initiatives and artificial intelligence (AI) deployment.

While the Index reflects a year-on-year hiring dip in IT, Telecom/ISP, and BPO/ITES by 13%, the monthly hiring demand in the sector has seen a notable increase. However, hiring in this sector has slowed in recent months, primarily due to ongoing global economic uncertainties.

Online recruitment surpassed the year-ago level in 8 of the 9 occupation groups monitored by the tracker, with Hospitality & Travel leading the charge at (+212%). This is due to the opening of land and air borders as the country has completely eased out of the Covid-19 pandemic and opened its land borders with Singapore. This factor has also contributed to the positive growth in Sales & Business Development job roles (+28%). The increased penetration of digitization across all sectors, followed by a pickup in Finance & Accounts (+29%) roles, registered an increased demand and has maintained resolute growth rates since April '21. However, among all monitored functions, customer service is the only one to have registered a de-growth of 17% in December '22.

The foundit Insights Tracker is a comprehensive monthly analysis of online job posting activity conducted by foundit. Based on a real-time review of millions of employer job opportunities culled from a large, representative selection of online career outlets, the foundit Insights Tracker (FIT) presents a snapshot of employer online recruitment activity nationwide.

Period for the report
The period considered for the foundit Insights Tracker (fit) data is 1st to 31st December, 2022.

Austral Gold Announces Drill Results at Casposo-Manantiales

SYDNEY, AU, Jan 30, 2023 – (ACN Newswire) – Austral Gold Limited (ASX: AGD) (TSXV: AGLD) ("Austral") is pleased to announce the results from its recent drilling campaign ("drilling program") at the Casposo-Manantiales Project located in the province of San Juan, Argentina. The Company drilled 4,265 metres of diamond drilling ("DD") in 15 DD holes.

Table 1: Manantiales and Cerro Amarillo Drill hole Results


The focus of the drilling program was to follow up on the results achieved in previous drilling campaigns at the Manantiales vein disclosed in the 27 July 2022 and 26 October 2021 announcements. The follow-up drilling program at the Manantiales vein intercepted high gold grades at the top and bottom of the central ore-shoot, indicating possible continuity at depth. The best two holes intercepted high-grade gold confirming the continuity of mineralisation in the central ore-shoot and opening the upside at depth. During 2022, 6,585 metres were drilled in 27 DD holes and total exploration costs were US$2.8 million.

At Cerro Amarillo, which is close to the Manantiales vein (see map below), two holes were drilled; one in Awada (152 metres), and the other in La Puerta (326 metres) to test for new structural and ore controls. Favourable alteration was intercepted with discrete gold anomalies.

The AWD-22-003 hole located in the western sector of Awada recognised strong silicification in approximately 50 metres, although with low gold anomalies. At La Puerta, the objective of drill hole LPO-22-004 was to intercept the veins in more favourable host rock, however the structures were intercepted in Oveja Negra Fm without significant gold values.

Austral Gold's Chief Executive Officer, Stabro Kasaneva said: "We are pleased to complete the 2022 drilling program of approximately 7,000 metres over two phases at the Casposo-Manantiales project. The outcome of the program was positive with some encouraging assays reported, and we look forward to the design of our next drilling campaign considering our objective to restart mining operations at the Casposo-Manantiales project."

KUCHING, MALAYSIA, Jan 27, 2023 – (ACN Newswire) – Civil engineering specialist Sarawak Consolidated Industries Berhad (SCIB) today announced that the Company has issued a letter of withdrawal to Kencana Healthcare Sdn. Bhd. (KHSB) for the proposed engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPCC) contracts involving a specialist hospital project located in Johor Bahru.


Group MD and CEO of SCIB, Encik Rosland bin Othman


SCIB had accepted a letter of award from KHSB dated 13 August 2021 for EPCC contracts involving the capital equipment procurement as well as the leasing concession for the procurement, supply, installation, testing and commissioning of medical equipment. SCIB and KHSB have mutually agreed to the Company withdrawing from the project.

As part of the withdrawal from the project, KHSB will reimburse under a settlement agreement, the commitment fee amounting to RM1.65 million that SCIB had paid out in two tranches. The withdrawal from the contracts will not have any material effect on the gearing, earnings per share and net assets of the Company for the financial year ending 30 June 2023.

Group Managing Director of SCIB, Encik Rosland bin Othman said, "The Company is enforcing its rights under the contracts and taking the necessary measures to protect SCIB's interests in mitigating the risks arising from the long delay or non-movement of project progress due to the uncertainties and inability to secure the necessary operator for the project. Additionally, this decision was made due to reviewing and updating our order book records to reflect the current situation."

TORONTO, ON, Jan 26, 2023 – (ACN Newswire) – Palladium One Mining Inc. (TSXV: PDM) (OTCQB: NKORF) (FSE: 7N11) (the "Company" or "Palladium One") is pleased to report that a high-resolution airborne magnetic survey has commenced at Tyko and that the Company has acquired an additional 4,520 hectares through staking contiguous with the Tyko Nickel – Copper Project, in Ontario, Canada (Figure 1).

President and CEO, Derrick Weyrauch commented, "This low-cost strategic expansion of the Tyko property secures additional ground interpreted to host prospective feeder dykes / chonolith structures. The 2023 high-resolution magnetic survey, that is currently being flown, will incorporate these new claims and will greatly refine structures across the entire property. Results of the magnetic survey will be compiled in 3D along with a broad soil sampling / mapping program that is scheduled to start in Q2."

The new high-resolution magnetic survey is being flown by helicopter at 75-meter spacings and will comprise 4,520 line-kilometres. The survey is expected to be completed in February. The increased resolution of this survey will enable the Company to "see through the clutter" of the numerous later cross cutting diabase dykes at Tyko and improve drill targeting of the feeder dykes / chonolith structures.

Infocus International Brings Back Public-Private Partnerships In-Person Course in Singapore

Singapore, Jan 25, 2023 – (ACN Newswire) – The Public-Private Partnership (PPP) workshop is back for 2023 in Singapore. Infocus International is delighted to bring one of their best events to professionals from all around the world and it will be commencing on 6th February 2023 in Singapore.



We need new infrastructure. Roads, airports, schools, hospitals and housing: the list is enormous and growing. Yet severely limited budgets, economic uncertainty caused by volatile commodity prices, and deficits continue to prevent government at all levels from delivering the kinds of structural change that has always been needed.

In response, some countries have developed relatively successful PPP programmes – similar in many ways yet with specific national characteristics. Challenges remain throughout each region and are intensifying in the current environment. Merely grasping the concepts of PPP does not do justice to our great responsibility of having an ownership in the country's future. We already know what we need to do, now is the time to really discover HOW. Beginning with an in-depth understanding of how PPPs work, from financial, commercial, project & legal aspects, we seek to push our participants to innovate with real life case studies, group discussions and technical evaluation.

One of our past participants from Electricity Generation Company (Malawi) Ltd shared that, "The facilitator was very knowledgeable on the subject matter, very responsive to questions and innovative in the delivery of the PPP training program. The knowledge gained will assist me in productive participation in ongoing and planned PPP Projects in my country."

Another past participant from PNG Ports Corporation also mentioned that, "This is an excellent course for anyone involved in PPP. Highly recommended."

Benefits of Attending:
– Use best practices from international case studies of successful PPP transactions and common practical pitfalls to avoid
– Design and manage PPP legal, regulatory & institutional frameworks to attract investors and complete PPP transactions
– Apply models for the efficient design and completion of PPP feasibility studies
– Understand project financing requirements and evaluate PPP financial models for both affordability and bankability
– Evaluate and apply different credit enhancement techniques to ensure PPP bankability, including blended financing, viability gap funding (VGF), partial guarantees, risk insurance products, output-based aid (OBA) and other financial instruments
– Design PPP transaction implementation plans and manage & oversee PPP transaction advisors for reaching commercial closure and financial closure
– Models for PPP tender documents, including PPP Project Information Memoranda ("InfoMemos"), Requests for Qualifications (RFQs), Requests for Proposals (RFPs)
– International models for designing and drafting PPP contracts & agreements
– Environmental & social impact mitigation techniques to structure sustainable private investments in public infrastructure
– Plans for managing sustainable PPP contracts including ensuring technical performance, quality of service delivery, price review & adjustment regulatory models, legal contract management and alternative dispute resolution (ADR) techniques
