Digiplex Chairman and CEO Bud Mayo stated, “We continue to make significant progress in strategically expanding Digiplex’s theater and screen footprint in leading markets around the country. At the end of our fiscal second quarter we were up to 159 screens in 16 locations, and added another two theaters with an aggregate of 19 screens in Sparta, NJ and Solon, OH subsequent to Q2. We are transforming each acquired facility into a digital entertainment center that adds significant incremental value to our operating base through accretive revenue, EBITDA and free cash flow generation. Digiplex has come a long way in less than a year since our April 2012 IPO and we are well positioned to achieve the 100 location/1000 screen goal we set for ourselves as a corporate milestone, and in the process we will continue to focus on creating incremental value for all our stakeholders.”

TechCrunch reported that "Berlin-based relayr, maker of the WunderBar, an Internet of Things (IoT) hardware dev kit which resembles a chunky chocolate bar, has closed a $2.3 million seed round, from unnamed U.S. and Switzerland-based investors. The startup had previously raised a €250,000 friend and family round, and had been on track to close a €500,000 seed earlier this year — but received a higher funding offer from a different set of investors, which is the $2.3M round it’s reporting."
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades.
