We know they’re coming. Apple recently stated publicly that it will launch new iMac computers this year. But, it’s figuring out what will be different about them inside and out that we can still have fun with. Before and (especially) since that rare, impromptu meeting Apple held with journalists in April to discuss the future of the Mac, several details regarding the desktop Macs in question have reportedly surfaced. Of course, we still don’t know the iMac’s 2017 release date, and likely won’t for some time. With that, here’s everything else we know about the 2017 iMac so far. When Apple first confirmed that new iMacs would arrive in 2017, naturally executives offered nothing as to when these new computers would release. Since that revealing meeting with select press, we’ve developed a better idea of when we’ll see the 2017 iMacs. A DigitTimes report, citing supply chain sources, alleges that two new iMac models – 21.5- and- 27-inch, of course – will go into production this May targeting a third quarter, or Q3 2017, launch. Further, the report states that a truly professional-grade iMac will release later this year, so Q4 2017 would be a safe guess there. Sadly, we’ve heard little to nothing regarding the iMac 2017 price just yet. However, it would be safe to expect them to fall in line with previous price points for iMacs. For those keeping score, that’s $1,099 (£1,049, AU$1,699) to start for the 21.5-inch iMac and $1,799 ($1,749, AU$2,799) for the 27-inch model to start. That said, we’ve seen Apple hike prices up a bit for the sake of flashy new features, like the new MacBook Pro Touch Bar. Since rumor has it the next iMac may come with a Touch Bar keyboard accessory, it might be wise to prepare to spend a little more on iMac this time around. Unfortunately, we’ve heard nothing regarding the internals of the next iMacs for consumers like us, but lots of beans have reportedly been spilled regarding the pro-grade device. Namely, Apple is expected to put an Intel Xeon chip inside the all-in-one. Specifically, the Pike’s Universum blog reports that the 2017 iMac will house AMD graphics, Intel Xeon E3-1285 v6 processors, and from 16GB to 64GB of ECC RAM. Furthermore, the device will offer Thunderbolt 3 through USB-C along with a 2TB SSD inside. These are likely just a taste of the hardware options that will be available when the pro-grade iMac launches. While we currently don’t know much of what the, say, living room-grade iMac will house inside, we’d be surprised if the offering didn’t include at least Thunderbolt 3 through USB-C and some AMD graphics options. Finally, again, we should expect to see Apple experiment further with its Touch Bar technology, with reports claiming that the next iMac keyboard will have its very own Touch Bar. Bonus round: don’t expect an iMac with a touchscreen. It will never happen.

The Early Childhood Center at B'nai Torah Congregation in Boca Raton will put a sunny spin on summer school by offering VPK (Voluntary PreK) alongside their annual Camp Keshet - Summer Camp Program. -- The NAYCE accredited Ruth and Edward Taubman Early Childhood Center located at B'nai Torah is not just the only VPK program in Palm Beach County offered during the summer, it's also cleverly integrated into  the congregation's super popular summer camp program.Voluntary Prekindergarten or VPK gives children a jump start by preparing them for school and enhancing their pre-reading, pre-math, language and social skills. By developing the skills children need to become strong readers and students at an early age, children are more likely to be successful in school. But what kid wants to go to school during the summer? The ECC at B'nai Torah figured out how to make summer time learning into summertime fun by offering some of the same activities their campers are enjoying.The approximately 72 students enrolled in the ECC's VPK summer program will experience an interactive Mobile Planetarium, the only on-site STEM and Coding Center in Palm Beach County, a petting zoo,  fun-filled olympic-style outdoor activities, and the latest style in learning - the progressive Reggio Emilia Art Program. "Each year we open our doors to all children, not just those whose families are members of our congregation,"mpentions Nancy Goldstein, Director of the Ruth and Edward Taubman Early Childhood Center. " The key to a successful summer VPK program is to not only offer the highest caliber of learning, but to also ensure children have the fun summer they need and deserve," Nancy adds."Something else that speaks volumes about our summer camp and VPK program is the fact that those who graduated from our ECC and/or attended our summer camp program are now returning more and more as teachers, CIT's, and senior and junior counselors. The have come full circle by coming back to the place that resonated with them in a positive way as children." Some of the Summer Camp activities offered at our ECC that make us unique include weekly horseback riding with a "Giddy-up Shabbat," off-site visits to a water park and swimming,  juggling class, music, dancing and more.

GREENWICH, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Eagle Point Credit Company Inc. (the “Company”) (NYSE:ECC, NYSE:ECCA, NYSE:ECCB, NYSE:ECCZ) today announced financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2017, net asset value (“NAV”) as of March 31, 2017 and certain portfolio activity through May 15, 2017. “We were pleased with the Company’s first quarter 2017 performance as our portfolio continued to generate strong cash flows and we opportunistically sold several investments when there was strong demand. As a result, NII and realized capital gains for the period equaled our historical $0.60 per quarter run rate distributions on common shares,” said Thomas Majewski, Chief Executive Officer. “In addition, capitalizing on strong demand from CLO debt investors during the quarter, we completed the refinancing of nine CLOs in our portfolio as well as one CLO reset. The CLO refinancings will help those investments reduce their future costs and, after covering transaction costs, we believe should generate more cash flow to the CLO equity. Finally, subsequent to the quarter end, the Company completed an equity capital raise at a 14% gross premium to our March 31 NAV. That capital raise generated net proceeds of approximately $28.7 million and we continue to work to create additional long-term value for our shareholders by deploying the capital into new investments.” The Company’s NII and realized capital gains for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 was $0.60 per weighted average common share, compared to $0.58 per weighted average common share for the quarter ended December 31, 2016 (excluding a one-time excise tax charge of $0.04 per common share), and $0.61 per weighted average common share for the quarter ended March 31, 2016. For the quarter ended March 31, 2017, the Company recorded net income of $0.8 million, or $0.05 per weighted average common share. Net income was comprised of total investment income of $16.1 million, and realized capital gains on investments of $1.3 million, partially offset by total expenses of $7.6 million and net unrealized depreciation (or unrealized mark-to-market loss on investments) of $9.0 million. NAV as of March 31, 2017 was $282.5 million, or $17.13 per common share, a decrease of $0.35 per common share from the Company’s NAV as of December 31, 2016, but an increase of $4.11 per common share from the Company’s NAV as of March 31, 2016. During the quarter ended March 31, 2017, the Company deployed $51.4 million in gross capital which included $30.5 million in CLO equity investments. The weighted average effective yield of new CLO equity investments made by the Company during the quarter was 16.30% as measured at the time of investment. The weighted average effective yield of these CLO equity investments includes a provision for credit losses. Additionally, during the quarter, the Company received $37.6 million of proceeds from the sales of investments, resulting in $1.3 million of net realized gains, and converted one of its existing loan accumulation facilities into a new CLO. Two of the Company’s CLO investments were called during the quarter. During the quarter ended March 31, 2017, the Company received $28.9 million of cash distributions from its investment portfolio (including the two CLO equity investments that were called), or $1.75 per weighted average common share. As of March 31, 2017, the weighted average effective yield on the Company’s CLO equity portfolio was 16.21%, compared to 17.48% as of December 31, 2016 and 16.77% as of March 31, 2016. As of March 31, 2017 on a look-through basis, and based on the most recent CLO trustee reports received by such date, the Company had indirect exposure to approximately 1,172 unique corporate obligors. The largest look-through obligor represented 1.0% of the Company’s CLO equity and loan accumulation facility portfolio. The top-ten largest look-through obligors together represented 6.9% of the Company’s CLO equity and loan accumulation facility portfolio. As of March 31, 2017, the Company had debt and preferred securities outstanding which totaled approximately 35% of its total assets (less current liabilities). SECOND QUARTER 2017 PORTFOLIO ACTIVITY THROUGH MAY 15, 2017 AND OTHER UPDATES From April 1, 2017 through May 15, 2017, the Company received cash distributions on its investment portfolio totaling $29.3 million, or $1.66 per weighted average common share. Also from April 1, 2017 through May 15, 2017, the Company made net new investments totaling $43.9 million, which includes investments in one primary CLO equity security, one new loan accumulation facility and $11.7 million in secondary market investments. As of May 15, 2017, some of the Company’s investments had not yet reached their payment date for the quarter. The Company continues to be active as it pursues its refinancing and reset pipeline. In the second quarter, through May 15, 2017, one CLO in the Company’s portfolio priced a debt refinancing and another CLO was reset. As of May 15, 2017, the Company has approximately $26.5 million of cash available for investment. As published on the Company’s website earlier this month, management’s estimate of its NAV per common share as of April 30, 2017 is $17.71. Earlier this year, the Company announced its intention to pay monthly distributions and began paying $0.20 per common share each month, converting from prior quarterly distributions of $0.60. For the three months ended March 31, 2017, the Company declared and paid distributions on common stock of $0.40 per common share – the difference from the previous quarterly amount was simply due to the timing of the conversion and there were no missed distributions. The Company also paid a monthly distribution of $0.20 per common share on April 28, 2017 to stockholders of record as of April 17, 2017. Additionally, and as previously announced, the Company declared a distribution of $0.20 per share of common stock payable on May 31, 2017 to stockholders of record as of May 15, 2017. The Company paid distributions of $0.161459 per share of the Company’s 7.75% Series A Term Preferred Stock due 2022 (the “Series A Term Preferred Stock”) (NYSE: ECCA) and Series B Term Preferred Stock due 2026 (the “Series B Term Preferred Stock”) (NYSE: ECCB) on April 28, 2017, to stockholders of record as of April 17, 2017. The distributions represented a 7.75% annualized rate, based on both the Series A and Series B Term Preferred Stocks’ $25 liquidation preference per share. Additionally, and as previously announced, the Company declared distributions of $0.161459 per share on its Series A Term Preferred Stock and Series B Term Preferred Stock, payable on each of May 31, 2017 and June 30, 2017, to stockholders of record as of May 15, 2017 and June 15, 2017, respectively. As one of the requirements for the Company to maintain its ability to be taxed as a “regulated investment company” (which it has elected to be), the Company is generally required to pay distributions to holders of its common stock in an amount equal to substantially all of the Company’s taxable income within one year of the end of its tax year, which is November 30. The Company currently estimates its taxable income for the tax year ending November 30, 2016 will exceed aggregate quarterly distributions paid to common stockholders with respect to such year. At present, management estimates a special distribution of $0.55 to $0.70 per common share will be required to meet the distribution requirement described above – the range is estimated based on the increased number of shares of common stock outstanding today as compared to the number of such shares outstanding in prior periods. This estimate remains subject to revision as the actual amount required to be distributed will not be known until the Company files its tax returns and the distribution amount may deviate from the above estimated range. Management expects to target payment of special distributions pertaining to the Company’s November 30, 2016 tax year in one or more installments toward the latter part of 2017. During the fourth quarter of 2016, the Company incurred a 4% excise tax in connection with the special distribution. The Company will host a conference call at 10:00 a.m. (Eastern Time) today to discuss the Company’s financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2017, as well as a portfolio update. All interested parties may participate in the conference call by dialing (877) 201-0168 (domestic) or (647) 788-4901 (international), and entering Conference ID 11017420 approximately 10 to 15 minutes prior to the call. An archived replay of the call will be available shortly afterwards until June 23, 2017. To hear the replay, please dial (800) 585-8367 (domestic) or (416) 621-4642 (international).

The Company has also filed this report with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Earlier this month, Apple officially let us know that new iMacs would be arriving this year, and a new report claims that there will be a pair of refreshed all-in-ones which will launch in Q3 – followed by an iMac aimed at professional users which will sport ‘server-grade’ components, but this won’t pitch up until later. This particular rumor comes from DigiTimes, which cites the usual supply chain sources who are claiming that Apple will begin production of the new consumer-targeted iMacs next month. Refreshed 21.5-inch and 27-inch models will be produced and are expected to go on sale in the third quarter of this year, as mentioned. In the case of the higher-end iMac aimed at professionals – the sort of users who might typically be expected to pick up a Mac Pro, but have increasingly been eyeing Apple’s all-in-ones as a tempting choice as these machines have grown in power – that isn’t expected to be available until the end of the year. DigiTimes didn’t mention anything about the spec for the consumer iMacs, but did say that the server-grade model will run with an Intel Xeon E3-1285 v6 processor, along with between 16GB to 64GB of ECC RAM, up to a 2TB NVMe SSD for storage. As usual, we need to throw in the usual caveats about pinches of salt and speculation, and while DigiTimes isn’t always regarded as the most reliable source, in this case these spec details are backed up by a previous rumor from Pike’s Universum. DigiTimes also said that the high-end iMac – which is expected to go toe-to-toe with Microsoft’s Surface Studio – would have one of the latest discrete graphics cards on board, with Pike’s Universum previously having said that this would be an AMD solution. Pike’s also said that Thunderbolt 3 support would be included (unsurprisingly), and that Apple was working on an 8K display to go with the refreshed Mac Pro (the latter won’t be arriving this year, and the earliest we’ll see it is 2018). A third quarter launch for the main consumer-focused iMacs certainly sounds about right – most likely September – and hopefully we’ll hear some whispers of the planned spec for these models before too long.
