    *Continues Expansion Through West Virginia Service Hub*VAN NUYS, Calif., Nov. 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Capstone Turbine Corporation (www.capstoneturbine.com) (Nasdaq: CPST), the world's leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, announced today that its distribution partner E-Finity Distributed Generation recently signed three separate long-term Factory Protection Plan (FPP) multi-year service contracts representing 3.1 Megawatts (MW).

    E-Finity Distributed Generation, Capstone's distributor for the Mid-Atlantic and Southeastern U.S., secured the significant follow-on service contracts for multiple C65s and C1000 microturbines currently powering properties in multiple locations in the region. The new contracts are for up to 15 years of scheduled and unscheduled maintenance coverage. With these three new contracts, E-Finity now has a total of over 302 microturbines representing over 40 MW under long-term Capstone FPP contracts.

    Capstone’s FPP is a comprehensive maintenance program designed to give financial peace of mind to customers by setting the cost at a fixed rate for both scheduled and unscheduled maintenance for the life of the microturbine product. The FPP contract enables customers to have predictable and stable maintenance costs over the life of the equipment and protects the users from unscheduled maintenance expenditures.

    “At the end of last quarter, we had approximately $74 million in long-term FPP service contract backlog with another approximately $25 million in large pending FPP service contracts we expected to close in the back half of the fiscal year. These three contracts represent the first of the $25 million pending contracts to close as anticipated,” said Darren Jamison, Capstone’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “The revenue growth in our aftermarket business is key to Capstone reaching our profitability goals. To provide some perspective on this, last year the aftermarket business accounted for 39% of our total revenue, but made up 81% of our gross margin,” added Mr. Jamison.

    In addition, E-Finity recently expanded its service operations by opening a new warehouse and service center in Clarksburg, West Virginia as well as a remote service hub in Beckley, West Virginia.  In addition E-Finity has hired an Operations Supervisor to better service customers in the Marcellus Shale Play. E-Finity now has locations in Pennsylvania, Washington DC, Florida, and West Virginia.

    According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) “the Marcellus Middle Devonian-age organic-rich formation, also known as Marcellus Shale, extends in the subsurface from New York State in the north to northeastern Kentucky and Tennessee in the south and is the most prolific natural gas-producing formation in the Appalachian basin. The formation footprint covers about 95,000 square miles with a prospective area about 72,000 square miles.”

    “Because of the proven ability of Capstone microturbines to provide both economic savings, carbon savings and effectively power through severe weather events like hurricanes, customers are adopting our industry-leading FPPs to guarantee both high availability, and if required, quick repairs of these critical onsite power generation assets,” said Jeff Foster, Capstone’s Senior Vice President of Customer Service.

    “These types of long-term service contracts underpin our stated goal of achieving full absorption of all corporate operating costs from the gross margin from our predictable aftermarket future revenue stream,” said Mr. Jamison. “As we approach and eventually eclipse this inflection point, this will open up many competitive options for Capstone moving forward for increasingly strong growth of our behind the meter energy solution business,” added Mr. Jamison.

    With PFI Advisors’ #GivingTuesday campaign, the firm pledges to provide a free Operational Diagnostic engagement to any RIA that donates $10,000 or more to Layla Paige Sonnen’s CHLA donation page. These Operational Diagnostic engagements include a full analysis of an RIA’s back office technology suite; integrations between systems; how employees and end clients interact with the various technology pieces; and a proposed future infrastructure that the firm could leverage in a more efficient manner.

    *Data from event and experiential marketing found to add value and insight across wider marketing strategies*DALLAS, Nov. 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Data plays a critical role in all aspects of corporate marketing — from developing successful marketing strategies and campaigns, to deciding where to allocate budgets and best reach target audiences. Today, Freeman^® — the world’s leading brand experience company — in collaboration with Chief Marketer, announced the results of a new report, The Freeman Data Benchmark Study.

    Results from the study, which examined how brands are leveraging data across the entire marketing mix, demonstrate that data is becoming a top priority for leading corporate marketers, playing a significant role in helping them to secure budgets, set strategy, make decisions and impact ROI.

    The Freeman Data Benchmark Study compiled input from more than 650 leading marketing executives from many of the world’s largest companies. The results provide an in-depth, and crystal-clear look at how marketers are getting serious about data.

    With data becoming a top priority for leading corporate marketers, it is not surprising that — according to the study — two-thirds of corporate marketers from large companies surveyed said they plan on increasing their dedicated spending on data and analytics in 2019. The study also found that:

    · 89 percent of marketers use data to make strategic decisions
    · 98 percent of marketers use data to secure budgets
    · More than 70 percent of marketers leverage data to impact wider marketing and business goals

    “Data is becoming the fuel that powers the marketing mix. It powers the insights that drive critical decision-making at all junctions in both marketing and throughout an organization,” said Ken Holsinger, vice president, data and analytics solutions, Freeman. “With The Freeman Data Benchmark Study, we were able to dive deep into how some of the world’s most successful companies are leveraging data across their marketing mix, as well as which different marketing channels are being used as data funnels. The findings from the study provide key insights to help corporate marketers better understand how to put their data to work to drive business results and strategy, and also serves as a great benchmark to gauge where your company is at in the data journey.”

    When surveyed for this study, chief marketing officers and marketing vice presidents agree, it’s all about return on investment. Forty-four percent of those surveyed indicated that total sales over a product/service’s life cycle was their top metric (representing the highest percentage among choices). Rounding out the top five most important metrics to senior marketing executives were leads, sales from partners, brand awareness and digital marketing impact.

    According to the study — of all marketing channels — events and experiential marketing stand out as effective sectors for data collection, generation and influence. Respondents indicated that events provide a “wider and deeper” range of data and metrics than other channels, demonstrating that event data not only informs event strategy and planning, but also can add value and insight to wider marketing purposes and campaigns.

    Overall, the study found that:

    · Nearly nine out of 10 companies use event-marketing data to inform wider marketing strategies and tactical decision-making
    · Approximately 70 percent of brands integrate their event data with their corporate marketing databases and CRM platforms
    · More than 60 percent of companies also use their event data as part of their business intelligence and product development efforts

    “Data needs to be an underlying, fundamental component of any marketing strategy. We’ve seen corporate and event marketers alike put an increased emphasis on data lately, collecting, analyzing, leveraging, and activating it to improve their strategy and operations,” said Skip Cox, SVP, research and measurement, Freeman. “For event marketers, the actionable insights derived from data analytics empower them to not only drive results, justify event and marketing budgets, and improve overall attendee quality and event experiences, but to bring those insights back to the larger marketing strategies. Data is a tool, and if you’re organization is not using it, you’re missing out on reaching and exceeding your potential.”

    NVIDIA GPU-Accelerated Systems Jump Nearly 50 Percent in One Year;
    Accelerate Fastest Supercomputers in the World - U.S., Europe, Japan;
    Power 22 of World’s 25 Most Energy-Efficient Supercomputers

    DALLAS—SC18, Nov. 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NVIDIA’s position as the most dynamic force in global supercomputing was confirmed today in the just-issued TOP500 list of the world’s fastest supercomputers.

    The closely watched list, released at the start of the SC18 annual high performance computing conference, shows a 48 percent jump in one year in the number of systems using NVIDIA GPU accelerators. The total climbed to 127 from 86 a year ago, and is three times greater than five years ago.

    Moreover, NVIDIA GPUs power the world’s two fastest supercomputers — the U.S. Department of Energy’s Summit, at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and Sierra, at Lawrence Livermore National Lab. Combined, the two systems feature more than 40,000 NVIDIA® V100 Tensor Core GPUs, which enabled the world’s leading researchers to do groundbreaking research recognized in five out of this year’s six finalists for the Gordon Bell Prize, to be awarded during this week’s SC18 conference.

    Europe’s and Japan’s fastest supercomputers are also accelerated by NVIDIA GPUs.

    Also released today, the GREEN500 list, which measures the energy-efficiency of the world’s fastest systems, shows that NVIDIA powers 22 of the top 25 “greenest” systems.

    The latest list marks another milestone — for the first time, nearly half of its compute power — 702 of 1,417 petaflops — comes from accelerated systems. Prior to 10 years ago, no accelerated systems appeared on the list.

    “This is a breakout year for NVIDIA in the world of supercomputing,” said Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of NVIDIA. “With the end of Moore’s law, a new HPC market has emerged, fueled by new AI and machine learning workloads. These rely as never before on our high-performance, highly efficient GPU platform to provide the power required to address the most challenging problems in science and society.”

    The latest list shows that 52, or one-third, of the 153 systems debuting on the TOP500 are GPU-accelerated, compared with 33 new GPU-accelerated systems on the list a year ago.

    Among the new systems this year is NVIDIA DGX-2 POD™, at No. 62. The first DGX-2 cluster appearing on the list, it combines 36 DGX-2 systems and delivers more than 3 petaflops of double-precision performance. Based on these results, a cluster of only 11 of these systems would earn a spot on the current TOP500 list.

    DALLAS (PRWEB) November 12, 2018

    MOOYAH Burgers, Fries & Shakes, a fast casual, “better burger” chain, is ready to satisfy the taste buds of burger enthusiasts in Oviedo, Florida. The new restaurant is set to open Monday, November 12, in the Oviedo Mall located at 1700 Oviedo Mall Boulevard, Oviedo, FL 32765. The first Central Florida MOOYAH location comes as the result of a three-unit deal with Bakfield, LLC., a group of three entrepreneurs and friends based in Lake Mary, Florida.

    Bakfield, LLC. is comprised of Raj Bakshi, Keith Fields and Kevin Hipes. The three friends and business partners are excited to open their first location and will then explore real estate options for their next two MOOYAH restaurant locations throughout the greater Orlando area.

    “Kevin, Raj and myself are extremely excited about bringing the first MOOYAH franchise to Central Florida. Not only is Oviedo ranked as one of the best places to live in the U.S., but its hometown feel and tight-knit community make the Oviedo Marketplace the perfect location for the best burger, fry and shake restaurant you’ve ever experienced,” said Fields. “MOOYAH creates a fresh, vibrant, family-friendly atmosphere where we pride ourselves on delivering outstanding Guest service. It also differentiates itself with its made to order burgers with lean, 100 percent Certified Angus Beef, freshly made buns baked in-house daily, hand cut fries from Idaho potatoes and real ice cream shakes.

Recently, the company announced plans to open a location in Orlando’s Hollywood Plaza with veteran franchisee and Ben & Jerry’s Orlando CEO Tareq Qarman. That location is set to open in 2019.

    “Our family-friendly atmosphere and best burger you’ll ever put in your mouth will resonate well in the greater Orlando area,” said MOOYAH Burgers, Fries & Shakes COO & President Michael Mabry. “The team at Bakfield, LLC embody all the characteristics that make a successful MOOYAH franchisee, a quality restaurant operator and most importantly a great ambassador for the community. We look forward to seeing the success at their Oviedo Mall location and in continuing to spread the brand throughout the area.”

    At MOOYAH, Guests have the advantage of choosing from a variety of bun options, such as baked-in-house artisan potato or multigrain wheat non-GMO buns and hand-crafted lettuce buns called Iceburgers to accompany the never-frozen, 100 percent Certified Angus Beef® brand burgers, all natural Jennie-O turkey and mouthwatering MorningStar Farms® black bean veggie burgers. Each gourmet burger can be customized with five cheeses, Applewood smoked bacon and sliced avocado, along with nine free veggie toppings and 11 free sauces.

    *McPhy to install its 15*^*th** hydrogen station for the Communauté de Communes Touraine Vallée de l'Indre *

    · 15^th hydrogen station, bringing McPhy's stations' daily potential to 52,500km of zero-emission mobility
    · Touraine Vallée de l'Indre is launching a pioneering project driving zero-emission mobility: HYSOPARC

    *La Motte-Fanjas, November 12, 2018 - 05:45pm CET - McPhy (Euronext Paris Compartment C: MCPHY, FR0011742329)*, a specialist in hydrogen production, storage and distribution equipment, today announces that it is to install its 15th hydrogen station for the Communauté de Communes Touraine Vallée de l'Indre in Sorigny. The station has the capacity to deliver 20kg of hydrogen per day, able to charge more than a dozen utility vehicles.

    Pascal Mauberger, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of McPhy, comments: "The government set new momentum for the French hydrogen industry with the launch of a rollout plan in June. Projects driving zero-emission mobility can now be initiated on a regional basis. Formed from the merging of two intercommunal bodies, the Communauté de Communes Touraine Vallée de l'Indre has a particularly interesting approach. The grouping together of intercommunal bodies is a guarantee of success, particularly in rural areas, as it facilitates the implementation of local hydrogen ecosystems that can be replicated in the heart of all regions. We are delighted to be installing our 15^th McFilling station in Sorigny and would like to thank the Communauté de Communes Touraine Vallée de l'Indre for placing its trust in us."

    Alain Esnault, President of the Communauté de Communes Touraine Vallée de l'Indre, states: "We welcome the implementation of the HYSOPARC project, which reflects Touraine Vallée de l'Indre's desire to play an active role in the hydrogen industry. Our project supports regional innovation and clean mobility, in connection with the French policy supporting regional initiatives.
    The involvement of the Communauté de Communes and its municipal authorities coupled with McPhy's recognised expertise represents a key factor for success for the rollout of zero-emission mobility in urban fringes." 

    The opening of the station constitutes a first step for the Communauté des Communes, which has demonstrated its desire to develop a hydrogen production platform. To be developed in the near future using electricity coming from renewable sources, the platform will be attached to a multiservice transport centre. Coupled with the hydrogen station, this electrolyzer will be able to produce, on-site and on-demand, clean hydrogen for charging vehicles, and achieving a truly zero-emission mobility chain.

    *McFilling 20-350 technology selected for the innovative HYSOPARC project*

    Transportation infrastructures are at the heart of the development and economic and social attractiveness of regional areas: movement of people or goods, private, business or local authority use, by road, rail or air etc. The rollout of hydrogen as a clean alternative fuel allows for a long-term vision of regional development. Zero emission mobility helps to make regions more attractive by reconciling ease of use, improved air quality and public health, and encouraging the large-scale rollout of clean energy in the energy mix and creating decentralised value.

    McFilling 20-350 technology has been selected by the Communauté de Communes Touraine Vallée de l'Indre for its innovative HYSOPARC project. Intended to fuel the equivalent of a dozen utility vehicles per day, the hydrogen station will be opened in the first quarter of 2019. With capacity of 20kg of hydrogen per day - equivalent to 12 utility vehicles - the McFilling station, the 15^th for McPhy, fits in with the first steps of France's strategy of priming the market by simultaneously rolling out captive fleets and stations to fuel them.

    However, it should be noted that beyond this inception phase, the market is already set for a change of scale. For example, McPhy is present in the very high capacity (several hundred kilos of hydrogen per day) stations market for fueling large fleets of vehicles, buses and even hydrogen-propelled trains, with the first contract for a hydrogen bus station signed in May in the Hauts de France region.

    *McFilling 20-350 hydrogen station key figures *

    *Student Corinne Su takes home both the Digital Embellishment Award and the Digital and Variable Data Printing Award*MISSISSAUGA, Ontario, Nov. 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Konica Minolta Business Solutions (Canada) Ltd. (Konica Minolta), a leader in the Graphic Communications Industry, presented two awards at Ryerson University’s 2018 GCM Awards last Wednesday. Ryerson student Corinne Su, whose design was featured on the cover of the event program, was the recipient of both awards sponsored by Konica Minolta.

    Each year, the School of Graphic Communications Management at Ryerson University hosts an awards ceremony to recognize student achievements from the preceding academic year. With more than 200 family, friends, faculty and industry-leaders in attendance, dozens of awards were handed out to students, totaling more than $130,000 in scholarship funding by the end of the night. As a benefactor of this ceremony, Konica Minolta sponsored two awards and printed the embellished hardcopy programs for the event.

    “Sponsorships that we have with companies, like Konica Minolta, are so important to us for a number of reasons,” said Jason Lisi, Chair of the School of Graphic Communications Management at Ryerson University. “It’s very important to us to know that we have the support of industry, and it’s also extremely important for the students to be able to engage with industry to see what’s happening on a day-to-day basis. The support that we have from companies like Konica Minolta is really paramount to what we do every single day at the school.”

    The Konica Minolta Digital and Variable Data Printing Scholarship was awarded to the student with the highest standing in the class of the same name from the previous academic year. Digital and Variable Data Printing is an upper year course which teaches students how to design for and utilize the latest digital print and embellishment technologies. The Konica Minolta Digital Embellishment Award was awarded to the student deemed to have created the best digital embellishment design by a panel of Ryerson faculty and staff. The winning design was then featured on the cover of the event program.

    “This is the second year that Konica Minolta has had the privilege of sponsoring this event, and each year it gets better,” said Norm Bussolaro, Sr. Director of Marketing, Konica Minolta Business Solutions (Canada) Ltd. “Having the opportunity to work with a school like Ryerson allows us to contribute to the growth of the print industry through our support of students who will be part of its future. I’d like to congratulate Corinne Su for winning both of our awards this year – she did a phenomenal job designing the program, and we had a fantastic time printing it.”

    Konica Minolta provided students access to their JETVarnish digital embellishment printers, and then had them compete to design the cover of the event program. Dozens of entries were considered, but ultimately Corinne Su’s abstract cover design was chosen for its interesting blend of shapes, foiled-effects and varnish texturing.

    “I’d like to thank Konica Minolta for giving us the opportunity to do more than just print ink on paper,” said Corinne Su. “They’ve given GCM students a better understanding of what printing technology is able to do right now, and how it’s developing. I think it’s a really great opportunity that Konica Minolta is giving GCM students to explore different technologies, like the one used to produce the program cover.”

    In addition to the two directly sponsored awards, Konica Minolta also contributed to the Canadian Printing Industries Scholarship (CPIS) which is an annual grant given out on behalf of the Canadian Printing Industries Association (CPIA). This year, Ryerson students collectively received nearly $80,000 worth of CPIS scholarship funding.

    MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DiaMedica Therapeutics Inc. (TSX Venture:DMA) (OTCQB:DMCAF), a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company, announced today that it has applied to list its common shares on The Nasdaq Capital Market. In connection with the planned U.S. listing, the Company, as authorized by its shareholders on November 6, 2018, is implementing a consolidation of its outstanding common shares.“We have made significant progress in positioning DM199 to treat patients with stroke and kidney diseases, including having recently announced a partnership with Ahon Pharmaceuticals, a subsidiary of Fosun Pharmaceuticals, for the treatment of acute ischemic stroke in China in an effort to deliver value to our shareholders,” said Rick Pauls, DiaMedica’s President and Chief Executive Officer.  “This year, we have initiated a Phase II clinical study in patients who have suffered from an acute ischemic stroke and we are about to initiate a clinical study in patients with chronic kidney disease. With the anticipated upcoming clinical and other milestones, we have determined that it is the right time for our Company to apply for a U.S. Nasdaq listing."

    The Company’s Board of Directors determined that the consolidation will be done on the basis of one new common share for every 20 currently outstanding common shares. The consolidation was approved by the Company’s shareholders at an annual and special held on November 6, 2018, with 95.48% votes in favor, and is being implemented in connection with the Company’s proposed listing of its common shares on Nasdaq.  It is anticipated that trading in the post-consolidation common shares will commence through the facilities of the TSX Venture Exchange and over-the-counter on the OTCQB marketplace on or about November 15, 2018.  Following the completion of the share consolidation, the Company will have approximately 7,856,875 common shares issued and outstanding. 

    The new CUSIP and ISIN numbers for the consolidated common shares are 25253X207 and CA25253X2077, respectively. Shareholders who hold their common shares through a broker or dealer, bank or trust company, will not be required to take any action with respect to the share consolidation.  Letters of transmittal will be mailed to registered shareholders requesting that they send their pre-consolidation share certificates to the Company's transfer agent, Computershare Trust Company, for exchange for new share certificates representing their common shares on a post-consolidation basis. No fractional shares will be issued in connection with the consolidation. Instead, the Company will round to the nearest whole number the amount of shares shareholders would be entitled to receive in connection with the consolidation.

    As a result of the share consolidation, the number, exchange basis and exercise price of all outstanding stock options and warrants, as well as shares available under the Company’s equity plans, will be adjusted proportionately. The actual adjustment will be made by the Company in consultation with its advisors.

    *About DM199*

    DM199 is a recombinant (synthetic) form of the human protein known as “KLK1”. The KLK1 protein plays an important role in the regulation of diverse physiological processes including blood flow, inflammation, fibrosis, oxidative stress and neurogenesis via a molecular mechanism that increases production of nitric oxide and prostacyclin. KLK1 deficiency may play a role in multiple vascular and fibrotic diseases such as ischemic stroke, chronic kidney disease, retinopathy, vascular dementia and treatment resistant hypertension where current treatment options are limited or ineffective. DiaMedica is the first company to have developed a recombinant form of the KLK1 protein. The KLK1 protein, produced from porcine pancreas and human urine, has been used to treat patients in Japan, China and Korea for decades. DM199 is currently being studied in patients with acute ischemic stroke and DiaMedica is preparing to initiate a clinical study in patients with chronic kidney disease.

    *Multi-Precision Tensor Core GPU for Diverse Workloads Now Available on Google Cloud; 50+ Server Designs from Major Computer Makers*

    DALLAS, Nov. 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- *SC18 *-- NVIDIA today announced that the new NVIDIA® T4 GPU has received the fastest adoption of any server GPU.

    Two months after its introduction, the T4 is featured in 57 separate server designs from the world’s leading computer makers. It is also now available in the cloud, with the first availability of the T4 for Google Cloud Platform customers.

    “We have never before seen such rapid adoption of a datacenter processor,” said Ian Buck, vice president and general manager of Accelerated Computing at NVIDIA. “Just 60 days after the T4’s launch, it’s now available in the cloud and is supported by a worldwide network of server makers. The T4 gives today’s public and private clouds the performance and efficiency needed for compute-intensive workloads at scale.”

    The T4 accelerates diverse cloud workloads, including high performance computing, deep learning training and inference, machine learning, data analytics, and graphics. Based on the new NVIDIA Turing™ architecture, it features multi-precision Turing Tensor Cores and new RT Cores, which, when combined with accelerated containerized software stacks, deliver unprecedented performance at scale.

    “Real-time visualization and online inference workloads need low latency for their end users. We are delighted to partner with NVIDIA to offer T4 GPU support for Google Cloud customers,” said Damion Heredia, senior director of Product Management at Google Cloud. “NVIDIA T4 GPUs for Google Cloud offer a highly scalable, cost-effective, low-latency platform for our ML and visualization customers. Google Cloud’s network capabilities together with the T4 offering enable customers to innovate in new ways, speeding up applications while reducing costs.”

    Interested customers can sign up for Google Cloud’s early access program.

    Consumer internet companies, including social media and online shopping sites, are among T4’s early adopters and largest end-customer base.

    Among server companies featuring the T4 are Dell EMC, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, IBM, Lenovo and Supermicro.

    *Flexible Design, Breakthrough Performance*
    Designed to meet the unique needs of scale-out public and enterprise cloud environments, T4 maximizes throughput, utilization and user concurrency, helping customers efficiently address exploding user and data growth.

    Roughly the size of a candy bar, the low-profile 70-watt T4 GPU has the flexibility to fit into a standard server or any Open Compute Project hyperscale server design. Server designs can range from a single T4 GPU all the way up to 20 GPUs in a single node.

    T4’s multi-precision capabilities power breakthrough AI performance for a wide range of AI workloads at four different levels of precision, offering 8.1 TFLOPS at FP32, 65 TFLOPS at FP16 as well as 130 TOPS of INT8 and 260 TOPS of INT4. For AI inference workloads, a server with two T4 GPUs can replace 54 CPU-only servers. For AI training, a server with two T4 GPUs can replace nine dual-socket CPU-only servers.
