The Worldwide Motherboard Industry (Q2 2018) –


The “The Worldwide Motherboard Industry, 2Q 2018” report has been added to’s offering.

The report finds that the global motherboard industry declined slightly in the first quarter of 2018 with shipment volume of over 25 million units.

The increasing stable supply of Intel’s Coffee Lake, coupled with commercial replacement demand triggered by Windows 10 and the still-strong gaming demand, has bolstered the industry’s year-on-year growth in the second quarter of 2018.

The mining demand from China can be one of major growth driver for the industry but concerns have risen over a possible change in the Chinese government’s stance towards bitcoin mining.

  • Recent shipment value quarter review with breakdowns by maker, ASP, and price point

Biden Inauguration Signals an Upcoming Regulatory Reset


NEW YORK, Jan. 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — President-elect Joe Biden is expected not only to reverse many of the policies implemented under Donald Trump, but also to quickly put forward new legislation to combat the continued COVID-19 pandemic and resulting economic crisis. Coinciding with inauguration day, experts at Wolters Kluwer Legal and Regulatory U.S. have released a new white paper examining the statements and proposals from Biden's campaign and his transition team, outlining what professionals across several industries should expect of the new administration's policy and regulatory approaches.

“Under Joe Biden's administration, we expect to see a return to policies that are more in line with Obama-era priorities,” said Ted Trautmann, Senior Legal Analyst. “This includes increased emphasis on expanding health care access, employee protections, economic relief, international trade alliances, cybersecurity, and corporate accountability. However, with COVID-19 still present and worsening across the U.S., there are plenty of new challenges that will be a top priority for the Biden administration.”

This white paper lays out likely scenarios and outcomes across a range of key practice areas, such as healthcare, labor and employment, tax, securities and corporate governance, international trade, antitrust, intellectual property, cybersecurity and privacy, financial services, and others. Specific issues covered in the white paper include:

  • The “American Rescue Plan,” announced shortly before Biden's inauguration, which would provide economic and tax relief to families and small businesses, including emergency paid leave and a higher federal minimum wage;
  • Strengthening the Affordable Care Act, lowering the age of Medicare eligibility, and expanding health coverage for low-income individuals;
  • Extending the Social Security payroll tax to higher income levels, enhancing tax benefits for working families, and expanding several renewable energy credits;
  • The direction the SEC could go under new head Gary Gensler, including whether he may pursue regulations mandating public company disclosures regarding climate change and political contributions; and,
  • Restoring the nation's cybersecurity defenses following the SolarWinds software hack that compromised networks across the federal government and private industry; and
  • New COVID-19 relief legislation and oversight of companies receiving aid.

KORE Mining Shareholders Overwhelmingly Approve Spin-Out of British Columbia Exploration Assets Creating Karus Gold


High Grade Gold Discovery Provides Catalyst for Exploration Spin Out

VANCOUVER, BC, Jan. 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ – KORE Mining Ltd. (TSXV: KORE) (OTCQX: KOREF) (“KORE” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce that with respect to its special meeting of shareholders held today (the “Meeting“), all of the resolutions were duly passed, including the special resolution (the “Arrangement Resolution“) to approve the proposed plan of arrangement (the “Arrangement“) pursuant to which KORE will spin-out its British Columbia exploration assets to Karus Gold Corp. (“Karus Gold“).

KORE CEO Scott Trebilcock commented, “With the recent high-grade gold discovery at FG Gold of 14.35 meters of 6.44 g/t gold and drill results across 1.8 kilometers of strike from 14 pending holes, Karus is strongly positioned to attract capital and generate significant value for shareholders. We are excited to see Karus' assets exposed to the valuation forces for a pure play explorer with high grade drill results in an excellent jurisdiction.”

Pursuant to the Arrangement, the owners of common shares of KORE as of the close of business on the day before (anticipated to be January 22, 2021) the effective date of the Arrangement (anticipated to be January 25, 2021) will receive: (i) one-half of a common share of Karus Gold and (ii) one new common share of KORE, for each common share of KORE held on the day before the effective date of the Arrangement. 

There is no change to a shareholder's ownership of KORE as a result of the completion of the Arrangement. The majority of shareholders (those who hold their shares through their broker) will receive their Karus shares with no further action. Please contact the Company if you do not get your Karus shares by mid-February. Further information on the Arrangement can be found on the Company's website

Mr. Trebilcock continued, “Karus Gold will now raise seed capital in a rights offering. This is a rare opportunity for shareholders to access seed round financing usually reserved for industry insiders.  Karus then plans to list its shares on the TSX Venture Exchange later in the first half 2021, subject to regulatory approvals.”

The Arrangement Resolution required and received approval by more than: (i) 662/3% of the votes cast by the KORE shareholders present in person or represented by proxy; and (ii) 50% of the votes cast by the KORE shareholders other than those required to be excluded pursuant to Multilateral Instrument 61-101.

Closing of the Arrangement remains subject to final court approval as well as other customary closing conditions. Assuming the timely completion of these conditions, the Company expects the Transaction to close on January 25, 2021.

At the Meeting, KORE shareholders also approved: (i) the stock option plan for Karus Gold; (ii) the omnibus share compensation plan for Karus Gold; and (iii) the advance notice policy for Karus Gold.

This year, in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Meeting was held by way of virtual only format whereby shareholders participated in the Meeting remotely. Voting for each of the resolutions was by ballot.

KORE wishes to clarify its Management Information Circular dated December 18, 2020 in connection with the Meeting (the “Circular“). The Circular referred to a “Distribution Record Date” to be on or about January 22, 2021. To clarify, the reference to this date is not a “record date” but an anticipated date for determining which KORE shareholders will be eligible to receive the consideration disclosed in the paragraph above, pending approval and completion of the Arrangement.
