    Airborne Wireless Network Files for FCC Experimental License for System Demonstration

    Marking Significant Progress in the Commercialization of Company's Patented Infinitus Super Highway(TM)

    SIMI VALLEY, California, March 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Airborne Wireless Network (OTCQB: ABWN) has filed for an experimental Federal Communication Commission license file number 0378-EX-ST-2017 to begin air-to-air and air-to-ground meshed network system evaluations. Once approved, this license will allow the company to begin ground and flight radio frequency transmission testing of its patented technology, the Infinitus Super Highway(TM).

    The demonstration system has been lab tested at one of Airborne Wireless Network's contracted partner facilities. The Company will now take these successful results and bring them to its test bed Boeing 757 aircraft for ground fitting, testing on the tarmac, and eventual flight evaluation.

    During this flight demonstration, the Company intends to pass broadband data between airborne aircraft and a ground station, demonstrating the air-to-air and air-to-ground meshed network.

    Jason de Mos, Vice President of Business Development and Compliance, said, "We are extremely pleased with the progress we've made to begin testing our network systems. Upon successful completion of this flight demonstration, we will follow up with a larger scale, twenty aircraft test over an island community, where we intend to emulate global broadband services to users onboard the aircraft as well as on the ground, onboard ships and oil platforms. Our Infinitus Super Highway(TM) is on the forefront of creating a global pipeline that takes connectivity beyond current limitations, which is an untapped multi-billion addressable market filling the world's connectivity void. We believe our technology will bridge the network within the airborne hubs to eliminate single points of failure, reduce latency, and virtually eliminate the effect of severe weather, natural disaster or economic downtime."

    Once implemented, the Infinitus Super Highway(TM) will be an air-to-air communication system. It will be a new use for the (already existing) fleets of commercial airline aircraft to replace low-earth orbit communication satellites. Infinitus should provide low-cost, broadband wireless communication infrastructure from points-to-points, accomplished by using and modifying existing, small, lightweight low-power, low-cost relay station equipment onboard the commercial airline aircraft. Each equipped aircraft would have a broadband wireless communication link (within line-of-sight coverage ranges) to one or more neighboring aircraft or ground stations, which will form a chain of seamless airborne repeaters providing broadband wireless communication gateways along the entire flight path. Infinitus Super Highway(TM), when implemented, will provide broadband wireless communication services for customers in-flight as well as customers on land, along the line-of-sight ranges of flight path from the commercial airline aircraft.

    About Airborne Wireless Network

    The Company intends to create a high-speed broadband airborne wireless network by linking commercial aircraft in flight. It is projected that each aircraft participating in the network will act as an airborne repeater or router, sending and receiving broadband signals from one aircraft to the next and creating a digital superhighway in the sky. The Company intends the network to be a high-speed broadband internet pipeline to improve coverage connectivity. The Company does not intend to provide retail customer coverage to end users, but, instead, act as a wholesale carrier with target customers, such as internet service providers and telephone companies.

    Currently, the world's connectivity is achieved by use of undersea cables, ground based fiber and satellites. The Company believes that the Company's airborne digital highway may be a solution to fill the world's connectivity void. Once the network is developed and fully implemented, its uses may be limitless. The Company's network, once developed, should provide low-cost, high-speed connectivity to rural areas, island nations, ships at sea, oil platforms, in addition to connectivity to commercial and private aircraft in flight.

    IBM Patents Cognitive System to Manage Self-Driving VehiclesInvention expands IBM's portfolio of patents on autonomous vehicles

    ARMONK, N.Y., March 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- IBM today announced that its scientists have been granted a patent around a machine learning system that can dynamically shift control of an autonomous vehicle between a human driver and a vehicle control processor in the event of a potential emergency, providing a safety measure that can contribute to accident prevention.

    IBM researchers developed the patented system using their understanding of biological cognition and behavior generation in the brain. Their background as computational neuroscientists led the inventors to devise a cognitive model and technique that employs sensors and artificial intelligence to dynamically determine potential safety concerns and control whether self-driving vehicles are operated autonomously or by relinquishing control to a human driver.

    For example, if a self-driving vehicle experiences an operational anomaly, e.g. a faulty braking system, a burned out headlight, poor visibility and/or road conditions, a comparison may be made by the system as to whether the on-board self-driving vehicle control processor or a human driver is in a better position to handle the operational anomaly. If the comparison determines that the vehicle control processor is better able to handle the anomaly, the vehicle is placed in autonomous mode.

    IBM was granted U.S. Patent #9,566,986: Controlling driving modes of self-driving vehicles for this invention.

    "Self-driving vehicles hold great promise and potential, but protecting the safety of passengers and other drivers remains a top priority for vehicle developers and manufacturers," said James Kozloski, manager, Computational Neuroscience and Multiscale Brain Modeling, IBM Research and co-inventor on the patent. "We are focused on finding new ways to leverage our understanding of the human brain and inventing systems that can help those enterprises improve the safety of autonomous vehicles on the road."

    While IBM's newly patented machine learning invention addresses the complexity of dynamically enabling safe operation modes of an autonomous vehicle, other patented IBM inventions are focused on helping self-driving vehicles better anticipate and respond to actions of human drivers. For example U.S. Patent #9,361,409: Automatic driver modeling for integration of human-controlled vehicles into an autonomous vehicle network describes a machine learning system that models human driving techniques. The invention also employs a common interface that enables self-driving vehicles to communicate with one another, learn and better understand how to interact with human drivers as the models become more informed.

    According to the IBM Institute for Business Value, automobiles are evolving from a mode of transport to a moving data center outfitted with sensors and computers that capture information about the vehicle, its driver, occupants and surroundings. At the same time, conversational interfaces are enabling drivers to interact with their vehicles more naturally and, with machine learning, automobiles can learn about their drivers and personalize the driving experience accordingly.

    IBM inventors have patented numerous inventions that, among other things, can help vehicles become:

    1) Self-learning - powered by cognitive capability that continuously learns and gives advice based on behavior of the driver, passengers, and other vehicles

    2) Self-socializing - connecting with other vehicles and the world around them

    3) Self-driving - moving from limited automation to becoming fully autonomous

    4) Self-configuring - adapting to a driver's personal preferences

    5) Self-integrating - integrating into the IoT, connecting traffic, weather, and mobility events with changing location

    IBM has topped the list of U.S. patent recipients for 24 consecutive years. More information about IBM's invention and patent leadership is available here.

    Noted hacker Kevin Mitnick gives BBVA Compass' Jacksonville clients the download on cybersecurity- Former FBI Most Wanted Kevin Mitnick brings insight to Northeast Florida clients

    JACKSONVILLE, Fla., March 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- On Wednesday, former black hat hacker turned security consultant Kevin Mitnick headlined BBVA Compass' knowledge sharing forum Bright Perspectives: Jacksonville and led the minds of Northeast Florida clients on dynamic business technology topics such as cybersecurity.

    Mitnick -- who was once one of the FBI's Most Wanted because he hacked into 40 major corporations just for the challenge -- is now a cybersecurity advisor to Fortune 500 companies and governments worldwide and a public speaker for forums such as Bright Perspectives: Jacksonville. Mitnick provided BBVA Compass' Northeast Florida clients with a first-hand outlook and unique insight into how to protect and control their financial lives during the era of digital growth.

    BBVA Compass Northeast Florida CEO Nelson Bradshaw stated that Mitnick's feature in the local forum accents BBVA Compass as a digital leader and service organization invested in the financial success of Jacksonville.

    "Bright Perspectives provided the Jacksonville community with value that reaches beyond banking products and services," said Bradshaw. "Mitnick's event appearance is a forward-thinking initiative for the Jacksonville market, essentially creating an opportunity to foster bright financial futures for the clients, businesses and communities of Northeast Florida."

    BBVA Compass is a top five bank in Jacksonville, ranking No. 4 in terms of deposit market share. However, Bradshaw said that it is BBVA Compass' commitment to being a digital knowledge-services institution which can put the bank over the top during Jacksonville's market growth.

    According to BBVA Research USA, the bank's in-house economist team, the Jacksonville economy is expected to see growth throughout the next two years, with a predicted gross domestic product (GDP) increase from 3.4% in 2017 to 4.0% in 2018. The research team also highlights that the city's labor market is progressing at levels not seen since prior to the nation's economy drop in 2016.

    Bradshaw stated that if Jacksonville's economy is growing, then so are its businesses, which is all the reason to educate Jacksonville's business clients about cybersecurity.

    "Forums like Bright Perspectives can be impactful to our Jacksonville area clients who may experience business growth thanks to a rising economy," said Bradshaw. "This forum builds awareness about cybersecurity, potentially helping our local business clients to be proactive in guarding their finances as their business' activities increase."

    In addition to Jacksonville, BBVA Compass' Bright Perspectives series will land in cities throughout the bank's Sunbelt footprint, including, but not limited to, Austin, Houston, San Antonio, Dallas, Birmingham and Phoenix.

    Matthews Marking Systems Announces New Water-Fast, Water-Based Inks Tested And Approved As APA -- The Engineered Wood Association Inks

    PITTSBURGH, March 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Matthews Marking Systems, an operating segment within Matthews International Corporation's Industrial Technology Group and a leading manufacturer of marking and coding products, announces two water-fast, water-based inks developed specifically for drop-on-demand (DOD) valve print technologies for applications in the engineered wood industry. Both inks have been tested and approved as APA trademark inks and are formulated to reduce potential fire hazards in OSB manufacturing plants.

    SCP-350, a low VOC, low HAPS, pigmented black ink provides excellent UV-resistance, transfer resistance, and water-fastness, ensuring a long-lasting mark on engineered wood. SCP-350 is designed for use with Matthews' 8000+ DOD midi and maxi (7, 16, and 32 valve) size printheads and provides a bold mark on porous and semi-porous substrates. Unassisted dry times range from 5 seconds to 3 minutes on semi-porous substrates and accelerates on a relatively warm product.

    SCP-360A, a dye-based black ink is recommended for use in Matthews' entire 8000+ DOD printhead product line. Ideal for wood products and porous substrates, SCP-360A features excellent UV-resistance, water-fastness, and is VOC and HAPS-free. The ink's dry time is 5-60 seconds on ambient temperature product, and accelerates on a relatively warm product.

    Both inks are available in 6x1 liters cases, 4 liters, 5 gallon pails, 55-gallon drums, and 275-gallon totes.

    The new inks are exceeding expectations at early adoption test sites in the OSB and plywood industry, where both are printing a company logo and APA trademark onto wood panels. At these sites, SCP-350 and SCP-360A have proven quick to dry and transfer resistant on OSB sander lines and hot board product lines.

    Rodney Scully, who has provided sales and service to the engineered wood industry for over 25 years as President of Engineered Wood Innovative Solutions, is pleased with the adhesion of the inks and remarked, "We have been running SCP-350 at a customer's OSB plant, and they are very pleased with the quality and durability of the mark." Scully has also had great success with SCP-360A in Matthews' 275-gallon tote delivery system, "Using an ink tote allows customers to have weeks of ink inventory, which keeps their lines up and running for longer periods of time."

    These inks are an expansion of Matthews' robust DOD ink offering for harsh and dusty environments. Combined with Matthews' high-quality 8000+ Series DOD printheads and MPERIA(R) print control software, Matthews Marking Systems provides a complete marking and coding solution for the engineered wood industry.

    SRAX Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2016 Financial Results-- Grew Fourth Quarter Gross Revenue 42% for 2016 Compared to 2015

    LOS ANGELES, March 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- SRAX, Inc. , an Internet advertising and technology platform company that provides tools to automate the digital advertising market, reported its fourth quarter and full year 2016 results.

    "Our initiatives to diversify our customer base delivered 42% revenue growth for the fourth quarter of 2016 compared to that of 2015," stated SRAX's CEO and Chairman Christopher Miglino. "And our efforts to eliminate low margin relationships are successfully improving gross margin, which increased from 27% in the third quarter to 41% in the fourth quarter. SRAXmd, which posted record annual revenue, exemplifies the benefits of our strategy to build out specialized verticals. Additionally, SRAX Reach, our recently launched ad technology toolset that enables publishers to enhance their revenue opportunities, is gaining significant traction on the sell side."

    "Overall, our unique platform enables content owners, publishers and brands to amplify performance and maximize profits. In 2017, we are focusing our resources on our most profitable revenue streams as well as creating more operational efficiencies. We are committed to driving long-term shareholder value and have reaffirmed our 2017 guidance of revenue to range between $45 million and $50 million and dramatically improving our profitability on an Adjusted EBITDA basis."

    Fourth Quarter 2016 Financial Results:

    --  Gross revenue reached $11.5 million, increasing 42% over the fourth
    quarter of 2015. This reflects growth in SRAX sell-side clients as well
    as SRAXmd, which was partially offset by declines in buy-side revenue.
    --  Gross profit grew to $4.7 million, increasing 7% over the fourth quarter
    of 2015. Gross margin was 41%, compared to 54% in the fourth quarter of
    2015 and 27% in the third quarter of 2016 as management took strategic
    action to significantly reduce revenue contribution from low margin
    business. The results reflect the timing and execution of initiatives to
    reduce low margin business.
    --  Operating expenses were $5.6 million, compared to $3.9 million in the
    fourth quarter of 2015. Fourth quarter 2016 operating expenses included
    increased sales salaries and commissions resulting from the recruitment
    of additional sales personnel earlier in 2016.
    --  Net loss was $1.3 million, compared to a net loss of $426,000 in the
    fourth quarter of 2015.

    2016 Financial Results:

    Revenue grew 18% to $35.8 million, up from $30.3 million in 2015. Revenue was lower than prior guidance of $40 million primarily due to non-returning buy side business over the holiday season and timing of other advertising placements that shifted out of the fourth quarter of 2016 and into the first quarter of 2017. Gross margin was 35%, compared to 52% in 2015. Operating expense was $17.3 million or 48% of revenue, compared to $14.8 million or 49% of revenue. GAAP net loss was $4.2 million, compared to a GAAP net loss of $2.7 million in 2015. Adjusted EBITDA loss was $1.1 million, compared to an Adjusted EBITDA gain of $2.9 million in 2015.

    Balance Sheet Highlights:

    --  Held $1.0 million in cash and equivalents at December 31, 2016.
    --  Raised $3.8 million, net in equity on January 4, 2017.

    Use of Non-GAAP Measure - Adjusted EBITDA

    SRAX's management evaluates and makes operating decisions using various financial metrics. In addition to the company's GAAP results, management also considers the non-GAAP measure of Adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as income from operations before depreciation and amortization expenses, stock-based compensation and one time financing and transaction expense. Management believes that this non-GAAP measure provides useful information about Social Reality's operating results. The tables below provide a reconciliation of this non-GAAP financial measure with the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. This non-GAAP measure should be considered a supplement to, and not a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.

    PeopleNet First Major Fleet Management Provider to Offer 4G LTE Network Coverage for Fleets Operating in North America

    Expansion of PeopleNet's Managed Network Brings More Reliability and Faster Connectivity to the United States, Canada and Mexico

    MINNEAPOLIS, March 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- PeopleNet((R)) (www.peoplenetonline.com), a Trimble Company and leading provider of fleet mobility technology, today announced that it is the first fleet management provider to offer a connection to 4G Long-Term Evolution (LTE) networks, now available through its PeopleNet ConnectedFleet(TM) platform, in the United States, Canada and Mexico.

    Through the ConnectedFleet platform, fleets can connect their drivers, devices and equipment in real-time to improve efficiencies and increase safety. With the introduction of LTE connectivity, PeopleNet customers can now have the potential for faster connection speeds and the ability to access information more efficiently in geographical areas that previously had little to no coverage.

    "The introduction of LTE coverage is part of PeopleNet's continued efforts to evolve our platform to better serve the needs of our customers--both today and in the long term," said Eric Witty, Vice President of Product Management for PeopleNet. "Offering LTE connectivity gives organizations the ability to collect data from vehicles, drivers, and devices faster and more reliably than ever before. This enhanced connectivity can enable quicker decision making when a driver is on duty and also provides more options to drivers who want to stay connected and communicate with family during off-duty time."

    In addition to realizing the benefits of LTE bandwidth and speed, customers will continue to gain critical insight into their fleet's coverage through PeopleNet's Managed Network. Unlike other fleet management providers, PeopleNet's monitoring solutions provide highly-detailed wireless network metrics that report minute-by-minute connectivity, coverage depth and latency for all trucks in a fleet.

    LTE coverage is available for fleets using the PeopleNet Mobile Gateway, who operate in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

    About PeopleNet
    PeopleNet provides solutions to help fleets improve safety and compliance and reduce costs. PeopleNet's network communications, mobility and analytics products are used by more than 2,000 truckload, LTL, private, and energy services fleets throughout North America. PeopleNet was established in 1994 and is headquartered in Minnetonka, Minnesota, with an office in Ontario, Canada.

    Airborne Wireless Network Files for FCC Experimental License for System Demonstration

    Marking Significant Progress in the Commercialization of Company's Patented Infinitus Super Highway(TM)

    SIMI VALLEY, Calif., March 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Airborne Wireless Network (OTCQB: ABWN) has filed for an experimental Federal Communication Commission license file number 0378-EX-ST-2017 to begin air-to-air and air-to-ground meshed network system evaluations. Once approved, this license will allow the company to begin ground and flight radio frequency transmission testing of its patented technology, the Infinitus Super Highway(TM).

    The demonstration system has been lab tested at one of Airborne Wireless Network's contracted partner facilities. The Company will now take these successful results and bring them to its test bed Boeing 757 aircraft for ground fitting, testing on the tarmac, and eventual flight evaluation.

    During this flight demonstration, the Company intends to pass broadband data between airborne aircraft and a ground station, demonstrating the air-to-air and air-to-ground meshed network.

    Jason de Mos, Vice President of Business Development and Compliance, said, "We are extremely pleased with the progress we've made to begin testing our network systems. Upon successful completion of this flight demonstration, we will follow up with a larger scale, twenty aircraft test over an island community, where we intend to emulate global broadband services to users onboard the aircraft as well as on the ground, onboard ships and oil platforms. Our Infinitus Super Highway(TM) is on the forefront of creating a global pipeline that takes connectivity beyond current limitations, which is an untapped multi-billion addressable market filling the world's connectivity void. We believe our technology will bridge the network within the airborne hubs to eliminate single points of failure, reduce latency, and virtually eliminate the effect of severe weather, natural disaster or economic downtime."

    Once implemented, the Infinitus Super Highway(TM) will be an air-to-air communication system. It will be a new use for the (already existing) fleets of commercial airline aircraft to replace low-earth orbit communication satellites. Infinitus should provide low-cost, broadband wireless communication infrastructure from points-to-points, accomplished by using and modifying existing, small, lightweight low-power, low-cost relay station equipment onboard the commercial airline aircraft. Each equipped aircraft would have a broadband wireless communication link (within line-of-sight coverage ranges) to one or more neighboring aircraft or ground stations, which will form a chain of seamless airborne repeaters providing broadband wireless communication gateways along the entire flight path. Infinitus Super Highway(TM), when implemented, will provide broadband wireless communication services for customers in-flight as well as customers on land, along the line-of-sight ranges of flight path from the commercial airline aircraft.

    About Airborne Wireless Network

    The Company intends to create a high-speed broadband airborne wireless network by linking commercial aircraft in flight. It is projected that each aircraft participating in the network will act as an airborne repeater or router, sending and receiving broadband signals from one aircraft to the next and creating a digital superhighway in the sky. The Company intends the network to be a high-speed broadband internet pipeline to improve coverage connectivity. The Company does not intend to provide retail customer coverage to end users, but, instead, act as a wholesale carrier with target customers, such as internet service providers and telephone companies.

    Currently, the world's connectivity is achieved by use of undersea cables, ground based fiber and satellites. The Company believes that the Company's airborne digital highway may be a solution to fill the world's connectivity void. Once the network is developed and fully implemented, its uses may be limitless. The Company's network, once developed, should provide low-cost, high-speed connectivity to rural areas, island nations, ships at sea, oil platforms, in addition to connectivity to commercial and private aircraft in flight.

    SenesTech Releases 2016 Financial Results

    FLAGSTAFF, Ariz., March 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- SenesTech, Inc. , a developer of proprietary technologies for managing animal pest populations through fertility control, today released its financial results for the year ended December 31, 2016.

    The Company will hold a conference call today at 5:00 pm ET (2:00 pm PT time) to discuss these results and expectations for the coming year.

    Recent highlights and key milestones:

    --  EPA approved SenesTech's innovative fertility-based rodent population
    control product, ContraPest, in August 2016;
    --  Successfully completed initial public offering (IPO) on December 8, 2016
    with listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market;
    --  Launched initial sales of ContraPest in December 2016 in Washington and
    Louisiana;
    --  Announced the appointment of key personnel to expand regulatory
    approvals internationally and expand research and development activities
    for next generation products;
    --  Commenced direct commercialization efforts for ContraPest in January
    2017 following termination of North American manufacturing and marketing
    agreement, opening opportunity for more favorable economics on
    ContraPest sales for SenesTech;
    --  Initiated plans to double commercial manufacturing capabilities to meet
    demand in 2017;
    --  To date, received state registration approval from 44 states and the
    District of Columbia.
    

    Management Discussion

    "SenesTech has developed a revolutionary product to address rodent pest populations in the United States and around the world," said Dr. Loretta P. Mayer, Chair, CEO and co-founder of SenesTech. "Rodents destroy food reserves, damage infrastructure, and act as vectors of disease. Reports indicate rodent activity causes a loss to more than 20% to the world's food supply, causes nearly $27 billion in damage to infrastructure in the U.S., and is responsible for more than 200 million deaths through the transmission of disease, having twice knocked out Europe. Current methods of rodent management have threatened other species and polluted our environment significantly. This is a centuries old problem that has never successfully been addressed because they never get to the root cause, which is rodent reproduction. ContraPest targets the problem."

    "Clearly 2016 has been an incredible year for SenesTech. The realization of commitments made to our investors of receiving ContraPest approval, funding the commercial launch of the product, and commencement of sales have all occurred. 2017 will also be an important year, as we put in place the structures needed to further ramp commercialization efforts of ContraPest. We will be working with our early adopters to develop models for integrated pest management in different environments. For example, we will be building on our work in New York City, protein production facilities and island ecologies to develop effective, safe and sustainable rodent population management," concluded Dr. Mayer.

    Financial Results

    For the year ended December 31, 2016, SenesTech recorded revenues of $0.3 million, representing a slight increase in other revenues. As previously discussed, SenesTech received EPA approval in August 2016, with state approvals in the following months to sell its lead product, ContraPest. Sales are expected to ramp in late 2017 as sales and marketing activities surrounding ContraPest occur.

    Operating expenses during 2016 were $10.8 million, compared with $15.9 million in 2015, a decrease largely attributable to higher stock-based compensation in 2015 relative to 2016, partially offset by the contract concellation settlement with our former licensee. The Company anticipates decreases in its research and development expenses to occur in 2017, with increases to its sales and marketing activities as the Company supports the launch of ContraPest.

    Net loss for the year was $10.9 million, or $1.71 per share, a decrease from $18.2 million or $4.71 per share, driven largely by decreased stock-based compensation partially offset by the contract cancellation settlement with our former U.S. licensee.

    Adjusted EBITDA, defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, and adjusted to remove the effects of equity based compensation and unusual, one time events, was a loss of $6.0 million for the year, an increase from $4.9 million in 2015 due to salary and consulting expenses related to the Company's efforts towards preparing to go public, and the initiation of a project to develop a biosynthetic version of triptolide, an active ingredient in our product, ContraPest.

    The Company ended the year with $11.8 million in cash and cash equivalents. The Company believes it maintains sufficient capital to successfully launch ContraPest in North America.

    A complete annual financial report on Form 10-K is expected to be filed tomorrow.

    Conference Call Information

    The Company has scheduled a conference call later today, at 5:00 pm ET, to review these results. Interested parties can access the conference call by dialing (800) 860-2442 or (412) 858-4600 or can listen via a live Internet webcast, which is available in the Investor Relations section of the Company's website at http://senestech.investorroom.com/.

    A teleconference replay of the call will be available for three days at (877) 344-7529 or (412) 317-0088, confirmation # 10103800. A webcast replay will be available in the Investor Relations section of the Company's website at http://senestech.investorroom.com/ for 30 days.

    Use of Non-GAAP Measure

    Adjusted EBITDA is presented herein and is a non-GAAP measure. However, this measure is not intended to be a substitute for those reported in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA has been included because management believes that, when considered together with the GAAP figures, it provides meaningful information related to our operating performance and liquidity and can enhance an overall understanding of financial results and trends. See our attached financials for a reconciliation of this non-GAAP measure to the nearest GAAP measure.

    About SenesTech

    SenesTech has developed an innovative technology for managing animal pest populations through fertility control as opposed to a lethal approach.

    The Company's first fertility control product, ContraPest((R)), is marketed for use initially in controlling rat infestations. ContraPest's novel technology and approach targets the reproductive capabilities of both sexes, inducing egg loss in female rodents and impairing sperm development in males. Using proprietary bait stations, ContraPest is dispensed in a highly palatable liquid formulation that promotes sustained consumption by rodent communities. ContraPest is designed, formulated and dispensed to be safe for handlers and non-target species such as wildlife, livestock and pets, in a biodegradable product. In contrast, the historical approach to managing rodent pest populations, rodenticides, carries a high risk of environmental contamination and the poisoning of non-target animals, pets and children.

    We believe our non-lethal approach, targeting reproduction, is more humane, less harmful to the environment, and more effective in providing a sustainable solution to pest infestations than traditional lethal pest management methods. There is currently no other non-lethal fertility control product approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), or the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), for the management of rodent populations. We believe ContraPest((R)) will establish a new paradigm in rodent control, resulting in improved performance in rodent control over rodenticides, without the negative environmental effects of rodenticides.

    Remark Media Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2016 ResultsIncreased fourth quarter 2016 revenue by 27% over fourth quarter of 2015To hold a conference call today at 4:30 p.m. ET / 1:30 p.m. PT to discuss financial results

    LAS VEGAS, March 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Remark Media, Inc. , a global digital media technology company, reported its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year 2016.

    "Our fourth quarter performance provides a strong close to a very successful year for us," said Kai-Shing Tao, Remark Media's Chairman and CEO. "We achieved several developmental and commercialization milestones related to our KanKan Data Intelligence Platform, including our expansion of KanKan from a social media network into a business-to-business solution and the introduction of new products. We are partnering with companies such as Alibaba Cloud and TenCent to deploy enterprise and precision marketing solutions that leverage our unprecedented data set. In fact, our KanKan Open Artificial Intelligence Platform recently received the "best break-through technology" award from Alibaba. Out of 400 companies invited to participate, KanKan was ranked the number one start-up affiliated with the Alibaba eco-system. In addition, we are introducing proprietary products - such as KanKan Social Credit Service - that utilize the KanKan Data Intelligence Platform to address unmet needs in the China marketplace.

    "Our Vegas.com business is also performing well, highlighting the operational improvements we have made since the acquisition in 2015. In fact, in 18 months' time, we have successfully turned around a business with no growth into a business with projected double-digit EBITDA growth on an annual basis. We continue to enhance the technologies and website features that reinforce Vegas.com's position as the official website for Las Vegas entertainment. In fact, of the top 20 show ticket sales days in Vegas.com history, 18 have occurred since Christmas Day of 2016, and all 20 have occurred since we acquired Vegas.com in September 2015.

    "In addition, our acquisition of FansTang during the third quarter of 2016 provided us with a comprehensive digital media content platform and a prominent portfolio of partnerships with leading brands around the world. We believe we have established a formidable set of synergistic assets, each of which presents significant monetization opportunities in the months and years ahead. We are excited about our ability to accelerate our growth in 2017."

    Financial Results for the Three Months Ended December 31st: 2016 Compared to 2015
    The company's fourth quarter 2016 results reflect the acquisition of FansTang, which occurred in September 2016, whereas the prior year financials do not.

    million, and total restricted cash was $11.7 million, bringing the total
    combined cash position to $18.5 million.
    

    Financial Results for the Year Ended December 31st: 2016 Compared to 2015

    AT&T Selected by FirstNet to Build and Manage America's First Nationwide Public Safety Broadband Network Dedicated to First RespondersPublic-Private Infrastructure Investment Helps Police, Firefighters & Other First Responders Keep America SafeFirstNet Investments Expected to Create 10,000 Jobs

    DALLAS, March 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- AT&T* has been selected by the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) to build and manage the first broadband network dedicated to America's police, firefighters and emergency medical services (EMS). The FirstNet network will cover all 50 states, 5 U.S. territories and the District of Columbia, including rural communities and tribal lands in those states and territories.

    This is a much needed investment in America's communications infrastructure to support millions of first responders and public safety personnel nationwide who protect and serve more than 320 million people across the U.S. This significant public-private infrastructure investment is expected to create 10,000 U.S. jobs over the next two years from AT&T's work for FirstNet. The network buildout will begin later this year.

    Randall Stephenson, AT&T chairman and CEO, said, "We are honored to work with FirstNet to build a network for America's police, firefighters and EMS that is second to none. This is an unprecedented public-private investment in infrastructure that makes America a leader and public safety a national priority."

    "Today is a landmark day for public safety across the Nation and shows the incredible progress we can make through public-private partnerships," said U.S. Department of Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross. "FirstNet is a critical infrastructure project that will give our first responders the communications tools they need to keep America safe and secure. This public-private partnership will also spur innovation and create over ten thousand new jobs in this cutting-edge sector."

    Today, first responders use commercial networks - the same ones used by consumers and businesses - for mobile data and applications. That can be an issue when a significant public safety crisis happens and commercial networks quickly become congested. It makes it difficult for first responders to communicate, coordinate and do their jobs.

    Plus, first responders use more than 10,000 networks for voice communications. These networks often do not interoperate, which severely limits their ability to communicate with each other when responding to a situation.

    FirstNet's mission is to fix this. Through this new public-private partnership with FirstNet, AT&T will deliver a dedicated, interoperable network and ecosystem that will give first responders the technology they need to better communicate and collaborate across agencies and jurisdictions - local, state and national.

    "There's no connection more important than one that can save a life," said Kay Kapoor, president, AT&T Global Public Sector. "FirstNet is unprecedented in its vision, scope and importance to our nation and the future of public safety communications. We're honored to be selected for this historic and critical initiative."

    "This partnership brings together FirstNet as the voice of public safety and a global technology team with a proven track record and commitment to public safety," said FirstNet CEO Mike Poth. "Together, FirstNet and AT&T will move with precision and urgency to deliver this much-needed infrastructure to those who need it the most: the first responders we rely on in disasters and emergencies."

    In addition to creating a nationwide seamless, IP-based, high-speed mobile communications network that will give first responders priority access, the network will help:

    --  Improve rescue and recovery operations to help keep first responders out
    of harm's way
    --  Better connect first responders to the critical information they need in
    an emergency
    --  Further the development of public safety focused IoT and Smart City
    solutions such as providing near real-time information on traffic
    conditions to determine the fastest route to an emergency
    --  Enable advanced capabilities, like wearable sensors and cameras for
    police and firefighters, and camera-equipped drones and robots that can
    deliver near real-time images of events, such as fires, floods or crimes
    

    FirstNet and AT&T will innovate and evolve the network to keep the public safety community at the forefront of technology advances. For example, as 5G network capabilities develop in the coming years, FirstNet and AT&T will work together to provide the exponential increases in the speed with which video and data travel across the FirstNet network.

    To help FirstNet achieve its public safety mission, AT&T has assembled a team that includes Motorola Solutions, General Dynamics, Sapient Consulting and Inmarsat Government.

    The broad terms of this 25-year agreement between FirstNet and AT&T are:

    --  FirstNet will provide 20 MHz of high-value, telecommunications spectrum
    and success-based payments of $6.5 billion over the next five years to
    support the network buildout; FirstNet's funding was raised from
    previous FCC spectrum auctions.
    --  AT&T will spend about $40 billion over the life of the contract to
    build, deploy, operate and maintain the network, with a focus on
    ensuring robust coverage for public safety users.
    --  Additionally, AT&T will connect FirstNet users to the company's
    telecommunications network assets, valued at more than $180 billion.
    

    The strong participation of states in the FirstNet network will help make this significant investment in America's communications infrastructure a reality. As states join FirstNet, investment in infrastructure and job creation will follow.

    UniPixel Reports Year-End and Fourth Quarter 2016 Financial Results

    SANTA CLARA, Calif., March 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- UniPixel, Inc. , a provider of Performance Engineered Films(TM) to the touch screen and flexible electronics markets, reported financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2016.

    Financial highlights for the Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2016 included:

    --  Revenue for the full year totaled $4.1 million compared to $3.8 million
    in full year 2015. Fourth quarter 2016 revenue was $1.4 million compared
    to $0.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2015.
    --  During the fourth quarter the Company was awarded its 24(th) and 25(th)
    design wins in calendar year 2016.
    --  The Company delivered the 2 millionth touch sensor produced at its
    Colorado Springs manufacturing facility in the fourth quarter of 2016.
    --  The Company achieved Microsoft Pen and Wacom Pen certification during
    the fourth quarter of 2016.
    --  During the fourth quarter the Company announced shipment of 524,000
    XTouch sensors for an 8-inch consumer tablet being offered by a leading
    national wireless carrier.
    

    Subsequent Events:

    --  Subsequent to the end of full year 2016, UniPixel closed a $10 million
    common stock and warrants financing.
    --  The Company closed a $3 million preferred equity financing.
    --  The Company entered into a long-term agreement with a U.S.-based PC
    Maker to supply XTouch sensors.
    

    Management Discussion:

    Jeff Hawthorne, president and chief executive officer of UniPixel, said, "UniPixel's first full calendar year as a touchscreen component provider to the leading PC manufacturers, was very rewarding. Based on the leading-edge nature of our technologies we were awarded multiple design wins, which we began delivering on in Q4 2016. We expect deliveries to gradually ramp in the first half of the new year, with shipments accelerating in the second half of the year. We are excited with the opportunities ahead in 2017."

    Mr. Hawthorne continued, "We remain focused on improving every aspect of our manufacturing capabilities as we increase our manufacturing capacity to address the new design win volume production shipments. The majority of the design win programs are now moving through qualification to volume production. Each program requires specific adjustments to tailor our XTouch sensors for the devices in which they will drive touchscreen and stylus capabilities. This modest customization process will initially impact our yields, however, those yields will steadily improve as we move more units to volume production through the factory and deliver to our customers."

    "We are pleased with the recently announced long-term agreement with a leading U.S.-based PC manufacturer to supply XTouch sensors. The agreement provides that the PC maker will supply rolling forecasts to UniPixel who will use its reasonable efforts to reserve manufacturing capacity for the PC maker who, in turn, agrees to use its best commercial efforts to make the purchases outlined in the rolling forecasts. This provides us a level of visibility into market demand and an indication into new product development. We look forward to working with this industry leader in the coming years," concluded Mr. Hawthorne.

    For the year ended December 31, 2016 revenues were $4.1 million compared to $3.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2015. Revenues for the fourth quarter and the full year were mainly comprised of sales of XTouch sensors to a major communications customer and Tier 1 PC OEM customers.

    Non-GAAP Financial Measures

    In addition to financial results reported in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"), the Company has provided the following non-GAAP financial measures in this release and the accompanying table: Adjusted EBITDA. The Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally to analyze its operating performance and liquidity and believes they are useful as a supplement to GAAP measures in analyzing, trending and benchmarking the performance and value of our business across reporting periods as they exclude items that management believes are not reflective of the operating performance of the Company. As a result, these non-GAAP measures are provided to supplement investors' overall understanding of, and an enhanced level of transparency into, the Company's financial performance. The Company uses Adjusted EBITDA in conjunction with traditional GAAP operating performance measures as part of its overall assessment of its performance, for planning purposes, including the preparation of its annual operating budget, and to evaluate the effectiveness of its business strategies. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA is also required by the covenants in the Company's credit agreement to be delivered to its lender. Management does not place undue reliance on Adjusted EBITDA as its only measure of operating performance, and in fact, Adjusted EBITDA is not presented as an alternative measure of operating performance, as determined in accordance with GAAP; nor should it be considered a substitute for, or superior to the comparable GAAP measures. Rather, these measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP. No other adjustments were made during the three month periods and fiscal years ended December 31, 2016 and 2015. These measures may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies, even when similar terms are used to identify such measures.

    The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA (loss) to exclude discontinued operations, debt issuance cost amortization, gain on change in warranty liability, accretion of discount on convertible notes, interest expense on convertible note, depreciation, amortization of licenses, non-cash stock-based compensation, restricted stock issuance expense and severance. For reconciliation under GAAP to the Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA see Table A that is included in the tables accompanying this release.

    Conference Call

    The Company has scheduled a conference call to discuss its financial results for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2016. The call will be at 4:30 p.m. Eastern Time on Thursday, March 30, 2017.

    Sabre revamps GetThere to help business travelers get there with enhanced features and mobile empowered toolsNewly redesigned travel management solution delivers a modern and streamlined user experience across mobile devices, coupled with enriched access to airline branded fares and improved shopping for air, hotel and car options

    SOUTHLAKE, Texas, March 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Smart business travelers use Sabre's GetThere travel management solution to get there, and now they have more reasons than ever as Sabre Corporation is taking GetThere to the next level with the launch of a fast, design led mobile experience to provide business travelers a simple way to book and manage in-policy travel on the go.

    The GetThere user experience team conducted hundreds of qualitative usability research sessions to evaluate what travelers and travel managers truly want and need out of an online booking tool. The newly redesigned GetThere applied the results to create a new modernized travel experience that empowers travelers to make smarter in-policy booking decisions. The new consumer-grade and streamlined user experience gives them more self-service options and delivers an optimal search, shop and book experience whether on mobile or desktop.

    Other new GetThere features include:

    --  a simplified and responsive design, fully optimized for a mobile
    road-warrior
    --  an intuitive booking workflow powered by Sabre's technology that is
    accessible and consistent on any device - desktop, tablet, and
    smartphone
    --  Sabre's air merchandising capabilities to support airlines' branded
    fares with existing travel policy
    

    "Today's business traveler wants the convenience of self-service solutions. Our new traveler-centric design in GetThere puts the user first with new mobile capabilities and relevant content that's essential for a smarter travel program," said Wade Jones, interim president of Sabre Travel Network. "Travel managers and travelers will also have access to more content and the ability to differentiate various fare offerings from airlines including branded fares - helping business travelers get the exact services and features that they need to be productive."

    With more airlines tailoring products for business traveler needs, corporations require an enriched marketplace of negotiated fares, amenities for a mobile workplace, and customization within the managed travel program. With the new GetThere, travel managers have more options to use fare rules to identify Out-of-Policy fares and control whether certain flights are displayed within the search results. Business travelers have access to the full breadth of available fares offered by the carrier, beyond lowest air fare, at the touch of their fingers. This combination of enhanced features can increase adoption, in-compliance online bookings and reduce travel costs for corporations.

    Visa, a recent adopter of GetThere as their preferred online booking tool, generated the company's highest adoption rate and bookings in compliance. The company switched to Sabre's corporate booking tool to empower employee business travelers with an efficient self-service solution and optimize cost control when it comes to procurement and negotiated fares and rates from suppliers.

    "The collaboration and relationship you build really is key. That's what set GetThere apart from their competitors. I felt they had the knowledge needed and spoke my language as far as travel industry best practices and employee behavior," said Caroline Boggess, senior director of Global Travel for Visa.

    Prior to implementing GetThere, Visa had a very low adoption rate, hovering around 17 percent companywide. As an immediate result, online adoption increased to 70 percent within the first week of the GetThere launch. [Read more on the Visa adoption case study].

    GetThere is the most reliable online travel management solution, handling the most complex travel programs while remaining simple and intuitive for both travelers and travel managers. The latest capabilities drive online adoption, enhance travel managers' ability to satisfy duty of care obligations, improve supplier and contract management and streamline processes.

    IBM Watson Health Adopts SNOMED CT

    CAMBRIDGE, Mass., March 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- SNOMED International and IBM Watson Health today announced that Watson Health will adopt SNOMED CT (Clinical Terms) for use in Watson Health offerings in support of the company's commitment to comprehensive standardization of patient data worldwide.

    SNOMED CT serves as an international standard for clinical terminology. It enables a global exchange and analysis of clinical information in electronic health records through a codified language that represents groups of clinical terms. For example, a medical professional can enter the term 'myocardial infarction' into an electronic medical record in multiple ways--as myocardial infarction disorder, cardiac infarction, heart attack, myocardial infarction, and myocardial intact. SNOMED CT is designed to recognize that those terms relate and links them via a common SNOMED CT code, so computing systems like Watson can efficiently and comprehensively identify all references to such terms across disparate types of data and use that data to derive cognitive insights.

    "SNOMED's agreement with IBM Watson Health breaks new ground," said SNOMED International CEO Don Sweete. "Imagine the impact of feeding SNOMED CT's 325,000+ concepts into Watson's cognitive capabilities. The possibilities for clients, and the healthcare industry in general, are almost limitless."

    More than 30 countries have adopted SNOMED CT and it is actively used through agreements with 5,000 affiliates, such as payors, medical libraries and biopharmaceutical companies, extending the reach of its vast collection of structured clinical concepts.

    "SNOMED CT presents clinically-relevant concepts and modifiers consistently and comprehensively, providing a 'global language of healthcare'," said Lisa Rometty, Vice President of Global Markets for IBM Watson Health. "Standardizing our offerings on SNOMED CT supports our efforts to provide customers and collaborators with clear information to help clinicians as they consider medical decisions and support the efficient delivery of quality care."

    For more information on SNOMED International and licensing of SNOMED CT please visit snomed.org.

    About IBM Watson Health
    Watson is the first commercially available cognitive computing capability representing a new era in computing. The system, delivered through the cloud, analyzes high volumes of data, understands complex questions posed in natural language, and proposes evidence-based answers. Watson continuously learns, gaining in value and knowledge over time, from previous interactions. In April 2015, the company launched IBM Watson Health and the Watson Health Core cloud platform (now Watson Platform for Health). The new unit will help improve the ability of doctors, researchers and insurers to innovate by surfacing insights from the massive amount of personal health data being created and shared daily. The Watson Platform for Health can mask patient identities and allow for information to be shared and combined with a dynamic and constantly growing aggregated view of clinical, research and social health data.

    Honeywell F124 And F125 Engines Reach 1 Million Hour Operating MilestoneEngines continue to showcase industry-leading reliability for platforms around the world

    PHOENIX, March 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Honeywell announced that its F124 and F125 turbofan engine product lines, which are produced through the International Turbine Engine Company (ITEC) LLC joint venture, have reached the 1 million operating hour milestone across the various global fleets that utilize the advanced propulsion engines. The F124 and F125 engines, which are designed in the United States and produced and supported from Honeywell and ITEC's facility in Phoenix, have been in service since 1991 when the first F125 engines entered service.

    "We are exceptionally proud to have achieved this important milestone, and it is a further testament to the durability, longevity and outstanding design of our F124 and F125 engines. Honeywell and ITEC have worked hard to continuously improve this product line, improve reliability and reduce cost of ownership," said Matt Thraen, ITEC president. "As evidence of this, look no further than the demand we currently see on additional aircraft platforms as new customers recognize the value our engines bring to their aircraft, whether it is our superior fuel consumption, thrust-to-weight ratio or advanced control system."

    The F124 engine is a derivative of the F125 and is currently used on the Aero Vochchody L-159 ALCA operated by the Czech Air Force and Iraqi Air Force, as well as the Leonardo M-346 advanced jet trainer operated by the air forces of Israel, Singapore, Poland and Italy.

    The F124 is also used on the twin-engine Leonardo T-100 advanced jet trainer, which is competing in the U.S. Air Force T-X trainer program, a 350-aircraft opportunity to replace the existing fleet of T-38 jet trainers in the U.S. Air Force inventory.

    "The T-100 with our F124 engines is a perfect complement for an advanced training solution, providing a high level of safety and proven reliable propulsion performance for U.S. Air Force pilots and training instructors," Thraen said.

    The F124 is designed for a full range of flying scenarios. It is highly resistant to engine surges or stalls, and utilizes an automated full-authority digital engine control system to reduce pilot workload and help keep pilots focused on their mission of flying the aircraft.

    In addition, it has the highest thrust-to-weight ratio in its class for maximum performance and training flexibility. Its modular design and interchangeable components provide low maintenance costs, and it also delivers significant flight safety benefits with an integrated engine health monitoring system that helps identify potential issues before they become serious problems.

    Honeywell (www.honeywell.com) is a Fortune 100 software-industrial company that delivers industry specific solutions that include aerospace and automotive products and services; control technologies for buildings, homes, and industry; and performance materials globally. Our technologies help everything from aircraft, cars, homes and buildings, manufacturing plants, supply chains, and workers become more connected to make our world smarter, safer, and more sustainable.
