According to a new report from Communications Industry Researchers, sales of active optical cables (AOCs) for the data center will produce $1.5 billion in revenues by 2019.

Charlottesville, VA, USA (June 27, 2014) — According to a new report from Communications Industry Researchers, sales of active optical cables (AOCs) for the data center will produce $1.5 billion in revenues by 2019. The report “Active Optical Cable Markets – Data Center Applications,” is part of a two-volume set. CIR has also recently published an analysis and forecast of the market for AOCs for applications in personal computing, consumer electronics and digital signage.

More details about this report can be found at: http://www.cir-inc.com/reports/active-optical-cable-markets-and-opportunities-2014-to-2024-volume-i-data-c.

About the report:

This report identifies and quantifies opportunities for selling AOCs for the data center. AOCs in this sector carry Ethernet, InfiniBand (IB), Fibre Channel and SAS. Specifically, the report provides coverage on AOCs supporting the CX4, SFP/SFP+, QSFP, CXP, CFP, CDFP, and SAS/Min-SAS MSAs. In addition, the report provides detailed nine-year forecasts of data center AOC markets, with breakouts by end-user application, interface standard, cable lengths, type of cable and wavelength. Forecasts are provided in units shipped and revenue terms.

This new CIR study also assesses the product/market strategies of the leading AOC suppliers including: 3M, 10GTEK, A3CUBE, Amphenol, Avago, Brocade, Centera Photonics, ConnPro, Eoptolink, FCI, Fiberon, Finisar, Fujikura, Gigalight, Fujitsu, Hitachi Cable, IBM, InnoLight, JDSU, Juniper Networks, Luxtera, Mellanox, Molex, Multilane, Samtec, Siemon, Sopto, Sumitomo, TE Connectivity, Volex.

From the report:

Data centers are getting bigger and are requiring much higher data-rate pipes and interconnects than ever before. Mobile broadband and video applications are flooding data centers with content and this creates a growing incentive to shift to fiber in at least part of the data center. It is becoming increasingly difficult for data center managers to avoid fiber optics and at the same time AOCs offer an excellent entry point for fiber optics to all but the most structured-cabling savvy network managers.

Chinese AOC suppliers are showing that they can compete with the best U.S., European and Japanese AOC suppliers. They are now able to supply 40 Gbps cables with ease and a few are offering 100-Gbps AOCs. A few years back CIR would have seen the whole optical engine concept as beyond the capabilities of Chinese suppliers. But today Gigalight is using optical engines as the basis for its optical data center products, and other Chinese firms are expected to follow suit.

The Chinese AOC challenge will require a strategic response from established AOC firms. This could take the form of better branding, improved supply chains or upgraded products. For example, the TE Connectivity line was upgraded in 2011 with 40-Gbps products that offered reduced power consumption and lighter-weight cables and other leading AOC firms will follow suit.

We also expect to see more activity in AOCs that use the highest-performance modules. Such AOCs are not easy to make and this presents barriers to entry into the data center markets for smaller, less able AOC firms; providing market protection for the largest suppliers. The markets for such high-end AOCs are also not inconsiderable. CFP and CDFP together are expected to generate $190 million in revenues by 2019. Indeed, we think that the proverbial “next big thing” in the AOC space will be CDFP AOCs and expect to see such products prominently displayed at the OFC, ECOC and SC trade shows in 2015. For now, the three companies to watch in this space are Finisar, Molex and TE Connectivity, all of which have already introduced CDFP AOCs.

Nonetheless, throughout the period considered in this report, the “workhorse” QSFP and CXP AOCs will be the biggest revenue earners, with combined sales of $1.3 billion in 2019. These MSAs support both the Ethernet and IB protocols that are core to any data center and at data rates that are likely to be the ones most used in data centers over the next decade. The earliest QSFP AOCs catered to the 10-Gbps market, but the QSFP AOC business is now centered around the 40-Gbps opportunity. CXP can support 100 GigE or three 40-GigE channels. At this point almost every firm offering a range of AOCs includes CXP options.

About CIR:

Communications Industry Researchers has been publishing hype-free industry analysis for the optical networking industry for almost 25 years. We have provided market coverage of Active Optical Cables (AOCs) for six years. Our annual reports on this topic are widely regarded as the most authoritative market forecast and technology assessment in the AOC space.

Actyl Group Assists Employers After Ban Lifted on TFW Program for Fast Food Restaurants

Actyl Logo

Company’s team is well trained in the new changes made by Citizenship & Immigration Canada.

Jobs in Canada - Actyl

REGINA, Saskatchewan (June 22, 2014) — In the wake of a recent overhaul of Canada’s Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP), international workforce solutions firm Actyl Group has trained its staff on all of the new rules and regulations associated with the program.

The broad changes, announced June 20, are intended to prevent abuse and make it more difficult for employers to hire workers from outside the country. As part of these efforts, businesses and organizations in high-unemployment regions will not be allowed to bring in temporary foreign workers, and there will be caps placed on the number of TFWs employers across the country can hire. The ban on TFWs for fast food businesses, however, has been lifted.

“Although these recent changes to the TFWP in Canada will make it more difficult for employers to leverage it, there are still many opportunities to find, recruit and hire skilled workers,” said Linda West, president and CEO of Actyl. “Our firm has been able to project these changes and is ahead of the curve when it comes to the latest updates imposed by the federal government. As a result, our team is very well positioned to help businesses with both domestic and international worker recruitment.”

While the TFWP will still exist, there will also be a new category created called the International Mobility Program. Changes to the overall program include an increase in the number of inspections to 25 percent of all organizations using the TFWP each year. There will also be an increase in the application fee to $1,000 per worker requested, up from $250 previously.

In addition, businesses found to be abusing the program will have to pay a fine of up to $100,000, and the Canada Border Services Agency will receive more funding to pursue criminal investigations against potential abusers. Employers with TFWs on staff will also be listed in public records.

“Because of this recent overhaul, businesses with temporary foreign workers must make sure that they are in full compliance with the law,” said West. “Actyl has been the first recruitment firm to train its staff on these changes, and we know how to effectively and legally help you find and manage the skilled workers who will allow your business grow and thrive.”

Actyl Group is a widely respected firm that helps its clients create workforce solutions customized to their specific needs. The company has decades of industry expertise and experience, providing Canadian businesses and organizations with the best immigration solutions and job candidates.

The chapter can be accessed via: http://www.nanomarkets.net/Downloads/chapters/Nano-725Ch1.pdf.

About the Report:

Radiation Detection Markets 2014-2021 (Nano-725)

This report follows on from NanoMarkets’ successful reports on radiation detection equipment and radiation detection materials in 2013. It identifies the new opportunities that continue to emerge from the sales of equipment designed to detect ionization radiation. In many ways the medical detection equipment market is quite mature. But its customers can often be found in areas that change with shifting socioeconomic conditions. For example, a major market for radiation detection is in the nuclear power industry; a sector that rises and falls according to the energy policies of the day. Another major purchaser of radiation detection gear is healthcare, a demand that is boosted by the aging population in developed countries.

The customer base for radiation detection equipment is very broad and includes the food, pharmaceutical and mining industries, as well as the medical and nuclear power sectors mentioned above. In addition, radiation detection is used in both the military and domestic security. The bottom line is that while radiation detection may be settled technology, it continues to deliver value and evolve with changing needs.

In this report, we explore the revenue potential for radiation detection over the next eight years in three diverse market sectors: industrial and laboratory, security and medical. The report also includes eight-year (volume and value) forecasts for key sensors used in radiation detection applications, such as medical gamma cameras, RIIDS, portal monitors, PET detectors, oil exploration and scientific sensors, etc. As in NanoMarkets previous reports in this space, all demand forecasts in this report are segmented by device type and world region. In addition, this report analyzes the products and marketing strategies of the leading suppliers of radiation detection equipment in the markets covered.

NanoMarkets believes that business development executives and product management professionals, as well as investors and entrepreneurs, involved with radiation detection equipment will benefit from the comprehensive analysis or the radiation detection equipment included in this report which:

– Identifies major sectors using radiation detection systems
– Lists out opportunities for devices in traditional and un-conventional applications
– Points out technological advancements in the field of radiations and identifies detectors beneficial for developing efficient systems and devices.
– Analyzes different types of detectors, their advantages and limitations for certain applications
– Details the dynamics of the radiation based industry
– Discusses products available in the market and continual endeavors of their manufacturers
– Analyzes the geographical pattern of usage of radiation detectors in coherence with certain applications and their respective domains
– Signifies new opportunities and challenges in this sector
– Discusses the role of prominent regulations and regulatory authorities in monitoring radiation levels and exposures
– Provides forecasts of detectors in various applicative domains for the next eight years

About NanoMarkets:

NanoMarkets tracks and analyzes emerging markets in energy, electronics and other area created by developments in advanced materials. The firm is a recognized leader in industry analysis and forecasts in radiation detection and materials spaces which it has been covering since 2011.

Highly Controversial Thriller Novel entitled ISSA is released on Kindle

The fourth novel from C. Frederick Braun raises questions about the seventeen lost years of Jesus Christ.

ISSA Cover

Georgetown, TX, USA (June 4, 2014) — The long awaited novel ISSA by Texas author C. Frederick Braun is now available on Kindle with special pricing in time for Father’s Day. The book has been in the works since 2010 and is controversial in that it provides convincing evidence that Jesus Christ spent the seventeen lost years, those not found in the New Testament, with the Buddhist’s in India and Tibet.

“I studied the Hemis Scrolls, discovered by Nicholas Notovitch in 1890 in Ladakh, India and used them as a basis for the book,” noted Braun. “Additionally, I read the actual English translations of the scrolls conducted in 2005, which were almost exactly what Notovitch had reported. These scrolls are the only works we have depicting the life of Jesus written before the early fourth century. I then took it a step further and speculated on what would happen if scrolls, actually written by Jesus Christ, were discovered. The story is fictional and is kind of a cross between D. Brown and National Treasure but the history is very real.” he added.

In the novel, Dennis Wicks, a young American soldier and former Army linguist goes off on a walkabout through Asia after a tour in Iraq. He purchases an old Buddhist Alms Bowl in a market and discovers a hidden compartment in the wicker carrier that contains leafy scrolls. Intrigued he begins the tedious process of translating them from ancient Pali to Sanskrit, To Tibetan and finally English. What he discovers will change the course of history. In his hands he is holding the only documents on earth actually written by the hand of God.

Soon, operatives from the Mossad, The Vatican, The Russian Mob and the CIA are trying to get their hands on the scrolls and the bowl and Dennis finds that people will go to any extreme to possess these scared scrolls.

Eliciting the help of his archeologist sister and a prominent religious studies professor, they travel from India to Pakistan to Athens and finally Tel Aviv trying to protect the relics and tell the world the Good News…They just have to live long enough to do it.

“There is a message for everyone in this book regardless of your religious beliefs. Many who have read it tell me it strengthened their belief system and gave them a better understanding of the similarities rather than the differences between Buddhists, Christians and other world religions.” Braun said.

A translated copy of the actual Hemis Scrolls, believed to have been written about two years after Christ’s death, is included in the back of the book.

Braun has written four novels and his latest military thriller in the Doug Hammer series will be released in July. That book, The Merida Compact, will join his books Border War, Two Seconds and ISSA on Kindle and Amazon. Terminal Threat, another novel in the series will be released for the holiday season.

Braun has also written two non-fiction books entitled Success Is Your Birthright and Above All Else–The Patriotic struggle to secure America’s Borders.

His children’s history book, Dooney’s World–The Adventures of Dooney The Drummer Boy is also available on Amazon.

URALCHEM, OJSC Reports IFRS Financial Results for the First Quarter of 2014

URALCHEM, OJSC, the Russian holding company of the URALCHEM Group, one of the largest producers of nitrogen fertilizers in Russia, announced its IFRS financial results for the first quarter of 2014.

URALCHEM

Moscow, Russia (May 30, 2014)

• Revenue decreased to 19.4 bln RUB, compared to 20.8 bln RUB in January-March 2013.
• Operating profit amounted to 5.3 bln RUB, compared with 6.7 bln RUB in January-March 2013.
• Adjusted EBITDA comprised 6.2 bln RUB, compared to 7.6 bln RUB in January-March 2013.
• Adjusted EBITDA margin amounted to 32%, compared to 37% in January-March 2013.

URALCHEM, OJSC (hereinafter URALCHEM or the Company), the Russian holding company of the URALCHEM Group, one of the largest producers of nitrogen fertilizers in Russia, announced its IFRS financial results for the first quarter of 2014.

Revenue for the first quarter of 2014 decreased by 7% to 19.4 bln RUB, compared to 20.8 bln RUB in January – March, 2013. Operating profit amounted to 5.3 bln RUB (23% of revenue) compared with the operating profit of 6.7 bln RUB (32% of revenue) in the first quarter of 2013.

Adjusted EBITDA comprised 6.2 bln RUB, compared to 7.6 bln RUB, a decrease of 18%. The adjusted EBITDA margin for the first quarter of 2014 amounted to 32% of revenue, compared with 37% of revenue for the first quarter of 2013.

The negative net profit is the result of so-called paper losses. The bulk of the company’s debt is denominated in dollars, and following the sharp rise in the foreign exchange rate in the first quarter of 2014, the company has recognized a foreign exchange loss from financing activities to the amount of 13.56 billion roubles in the reporting period. Of this amount, 13 billion roubles is the exchange difference on the loans, on which there have been no real cash flows. Sharp fluctuations in exchange rates have a significant effect on the net income indicator. For example, movement of the dollar exchange rate in the opposite direction in April and May provided for positive exchange rate differences on the same loans to the total of about 6.5 billion roubles.

In addition, the financial result from operations includes foreign exchange loss in the amount of 957 million roubles arising on intercompany liability, while the corresponding gain is reflected directly in the statement of changes in equity. If these exchange differences were netted off, EBITDA could reach 7.15 billion roubles and its margin would be 37%.

Thus, against the background of declining global prices for major fertilizers, in the first quarter of 2014, URALCHEM showed the sustainability of its business model. Whilst its financial performance was lower in absolute terms, the company has maintained high margins (profitability) and continued to generate a stable positive cash flow. In response to market trends, the company has increased production and sales of key products, ammonium nitrate and its derivatives, as well as continued its efforts to improve the efficiency of business processes, to increase productivity and profitability and to reduce operating costs.

Markets

The first quarter is traditionally a period of significant market activity and prices are being supported by strong demand in premium markets, the US and Europe. However, despite the rise in prices in the first half of the quarter, the average values of quotes were lower than in the first quarter of 2013. In the second and third quarters of 2014 the market expects oversupply associated with the start of Chinese exports. The main demand during the period is expected from South Asia and Latin America, ie regions in which the price is traditionally low. The volume of demand is assessed as insufficient to absorb all available supplies from China and the Middle East. As a result of the oversupply, price cuts will inevitably lead to a halt in production in regions with high costs, including Europe and the CIS.

In January, the activity in ammonia markets stayed low. Quotes based on FOB Yuzhnyi Port remained around 410 to 430 dollars/tonne. In February, prices for ammonia in the ports of the CIS began to rise, which continued until the end of the quarter. Gazprom’s announcement about cancellation of discounts on natural gas prices increased interest in purchasing in the Yuzhnyi Port; the lack of available supplies in Trinidad heightened interest of US importers in purchasing in the CIS. The main growth in demand was due to the start of direct application of ammonia and increased requirements for raw materials from producers of phosphate fertilizers. In March, prices reached 474 dollars/tonne. However, in general, for the quarter the prices amounted to 438 dollars/tonne, which is 22.2 % lower than a year before.

The greatest activity for urea during the quarter was shown in US, Europe and Brazil. The US entered the purchasing season with low stocks. In January, prices in the US rose by 21% and the rapid rise in prices in the United States resulted in an increase in prices in the major sources of shipment: in the Port of Yuzhnyi by 15%, in Egypt also by 15%, in the Middle East by 16%. Prices were also supported by a lack of free product in North Africa and the Middle East. However, beginning with the last week of January, the market trend changed. The devaluation of the Turkish lira and the Brazilian real impeded imports from these countries and by the end of the quarter, prices returned to January levels. The average quotes for urea FOB Baltics in March totalled 314 dollars/tonne. The average urea price for the quarter was $330/tonne, which is 14.3 % lower than a year before.

January and February marked steady growth of quotations for ammonium nitrate caused by deficiency of the product available for export, due to the supply to the Russian domestic market. FOB Baltics quotes grew from $300/tonne up to $320/tonne. But from the beginning of March there was change in the trend due to lower domestic demand. In general, during the first quarter of 2014 quotes amounted to $308/tonne, which is 8.6% lower than a year before.

In the segment of phosphate fertilizers (MAP/DAP) average quotations (FOB Black Sea) for the first quarter of 2014 amounted to $469 dollars/tonne, which is 6% lower than a year before. Since mid-March, demand in this segment declined markedly; importers, relying on high inventories, put off new purchases in anticipation of more lucrative offers. In the second quarter, market participants expect lower prices.

Financial Situation

Cash generated from operating activities in the first quarter of 2014 amounted to 5.6 bln RUB, compared to 5.06 bln RUB in the first quarter of 2013.

As at 31 March 2014, the Company’s net debt amounted to 163.11 bln RUB. The debt burden increased after the Company received a loan from VTB Capital to finance the purchase of 19.99% of shares in OJSC “Uralkali”, which as at 31 March 2014 amounted to 146,01 bln RUB

Waterstone Investment Associates Inc Logo

If you have a UK pension but no longer live in the UK you can now transfer your pension to a QROPS. A QROPS transfer can give you many benefits.

ZURICH, Switzerland (June 1, 2014) — If you have a UK pension but no longer live in the UK you can now transfer your pension to a QROPS. A QROPS transfer can give you many benefits. However if you are in a Final Salary scheme you need to act now! Or you may be sorry, as time is running out!

A QROPS transfer can give you the following benefits:

•This can reduce the tax you pay.
•Allow access to your pension from age 50 rather than 55.
•Allow you to take a larger Cash Lump Sum.
•Allow you to take a larger pension.
•On death no 55% tax. (This is the rate of death tax on a UK pension)
•You can take your income in your local currency rather than in sterling.
•On death all your pension fund can go to your loved ones.

In the UK budget March 2014 the Government’s announcement that it intends to stop transfers from Final Salary pension schemes, also known as Defined Benefit pension schemes. This means the option to transfer to a QROPS is to be removed. This change may be in pace as early as 2015.

If you are in a Final Salary scheme you need to act now! Or you may be sorry, as time is running out!

Moving your UK pension arrangements to a QROPS if suitable given your own particular circumstances, can only improve your position.

Most importantly, once moved to a QROPS you have control over your money. If left in your UK pension arrangement it is highly likely that additional constraints will be put in place which will adversely affect you.

If you have a UK pension and have left the UK, or are considering a QROPS transfer, contact Waterstone Investment Associates.
