SINGAPORE / ACCESSWIRE / May 25, 2017 / In an independent research report released early this morning, Capital Review released its latest findings and analysis on Texas Instruments Incorporated (NASDAQ: TXN), including updated analyst target prices, detailed fundamental discussion, financial review and analysis, consensus estimates, share supply assessment, and this year's upcoming fiscal period upside projections. Full copy of the recently published report is available to readers at the link below. The new research report from Capital Review, available for free download at the link above, examines Texas Instruments on a fundamental level and outlines the overall demand for their products and services in addition to an in-depth review of the business strategy, management discussion, and overall direction going forward. Several excerpts from the recently released report are available to today's readers below. According to new research obtained by Capital Review, the microprocessor and GPU market will exhibit a compounded annual growth rate of 2.2% from 2017 through 2022. This latest projection would result in a total market size of $83.69 billion by 2022 and could signal significant shifts ahead for Texas Instruments Incorporated (NASDAQ: TXN). Microprocessors are known as the "brain" of all computers, phones, tablets, and many other electronic devices. Without these chips, technology would not be able to function to the same capacity that we are accustomed to. A microprocessor's main purpose is to carry out a set of programmed instructions and interact with certain application programs in order to function. Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) are a specific type of microprocessor that is specialized for display functions, which allow electronics to render images, animations, videos, and more for the computers display. Through the advancement of technology, the need for microprocessors have become essential to creating the sophisticated electronics consumers use today. Texas Instruments, a designer and manufacturer of semiconductors, is focused on analog and embedded processing that includes a catalog of High Volume Analog & Logic (HVAL), Power Management (Power), High Performance Analog (HPA), Silicon Valley Analog (SVA), Processors, Microcontrollers and Connectivity. Texas Instruments' microprocessors include Digital Signal Processors (DSPs), which perform calculations and computations to improve processes. These DSPs are designed for specific computing activity. The company believes that the main competitive advantage they hold in this segment is the ability to design cost-effective products, software expertise, integration, and product specifications. The company has already shown to be a leader in the microprocessor market. In 2016, Texas Instruments generated $13.37 billion dollars of revenue. With operations in North America, Asia, and Europe, Texas Instruments believes that it is well positioned to increase market share over time especially considering the projected increase to the microprocessor and GPU market. Additionally, a recently obtained research report on the microprocessor and GPU market published by Markets and Markets, outlined that with the consistent advancement of technology and the societal shift of technological dependency, higher demand could be seen in this market segment. The recent trend of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or drones, wearable devices, smart watches, the further integration of data into the cloud, and the impact of the Internet of Things could fuel the need for microprocessors and GPUs. In 2016, the x86-architecture microprocessor held the largest share of the market and is mostly used in laptops, desktops, and servers. These processors are sold at a higher cost compared to one of its counterparts, the lower cost ARM processors which are typically used in portable devices. This may change due to the preference towards more portable, easier to carry devices, compared to larger devices. Also, with this shift of preference, it may affect the revenue and profit margin of companies in this market. The specific segment of the market estimated to have the highest growth is in automotive applications, due to the adoption of car manufacturers electronic systems that provide driver information and communication, in-car entertainment electronics, power train, body control electronics, and automotive safety. It was estimated that the Asia Pacific holds the largest share of the microprocessor and GPU market currently, with the Americas closely behind. The Americas market share is expected to grow based on the increased demand for server attached GPU and ADAS applications.

MONTRÉAL, QUÉBEC--(Marketwired - 24 mai 2017) - Technologies Orbite inc. (« Orbite » ou la « Société ») a fourni aujourd'hui une mise à jour sur ses efforts continus pour sortir de la protection contre l'insolvabilité pour le bénéfice de toutes ses parties prenantes. La Cour supérieure du Québec rallonge la période de suspension des procédures en vertu de la LACC Tel qu'annoncé le 1er mai dernier, la Société a déposé une requête pour la poursuite des procédures initialement commencées sous la Loi sur la faillite et l'insolvabilité, en vertu de la Loi sur les arrangements avec les créanciers des compagnies («LACC»). La Cour supérieure du Québec a accordé la requête et a émis une ordonnance initiale en vertu de la LACC prévoyant une suspension initiale de toutes les procédures jusqu'au 29 mai 2017 (la «Période de suspension»). Le 23 mai dernier, la Société a déposé une requête en demandant notamment la prolongation de la Période de suspension et la Cour supérieure du Québec, a accueilli la demande et a émis une ordonnance modifiée et mise à jour : La Société estime que de telles ordonnances seront bénéfiques pour toutes les parties prenantes en donnant à la Société le temps et les ressources nécessaires pour sortir de la protection de la LACC. Il ne peut cependant y avoir aucune garantie que la Société réussira ses efforts de restructuration ou qu'elle sortira de la protection en vertu de la LACC. La société fournira d'autres mises à jour à mesure que les développements se produiront.

MONTRÉAL, QUÉBEC--(Marketwired - May 24, 2017) - Orbite Technologies Inc. ("Orbite" or the "Company") today provided an update on its continuing efforts to emerge from insolvency protection for the benefit all of its stakeholders. As announced on May 1, 2017, the Company filed a petition for continuance of the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act proceedings under the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act ("CCAA"). The Superior Court of Québec granted the petition and issued an initial order pursuant to the CCAA providing for an initial stay of all proceedings until May 29th, 2017 (the "Stay Period"). On May 23, the Company filed a motion seeking, namely, the extension of the Stay Period and the Superior Court of Québec granted the motion and issued an amended and restated order: The Company believes that such orders will be beneficial to all stakeholders by giving the Company the required time and resources to emerge from CCAA protection. There can be no guarantees that the Company will be successful in its restructuring efforts or will emerge from CCAA protection. The Company will provide further updates as developments occur. On May 19, 2017, the TSX Venture Exchange issued a bulletin confirming the listing of the Company's common shares on the NEX Board under the symbol ORT.H, towards a possible relisting, as a first step, on the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSX-V") when and if the Company emerges from creditor protection and meets the listing requirements of the TSX-V. However, the common shares will remain suspended from trading until further notice, and there can be no guarantees that the Company will be successful in obtaining the listing of its common shares on the TSX-V or on any other stock exchange.

In 2013, a U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) inspector visited Thomas D. Morris, Inc., a Maryland animal breeder that sells to U.S. government and academic scientists. The inspector found numerous violations of the federal Animal Welfare Act (AWA), which sets standards for humane treatment. Fifteen unshorn sheep were penned in a sweltering building, while a group of calves and sheep had no shelter at all. A goat and a lamb were lame; another goat had an egg-sized swelling on its shoulder. In a subsequent letter, USDA warned the firm, which had 18 employees and $5 million in revenue in 2013, that future violations could result in fines or criminal prosecution. But it’s difficult for the public to know whether the company—which supplied animals used in at least 48 biomedical studies published since 2012—has kept a clean record. That’s because, on 3 February, USDA abruptly removed inspection reports, warning letters, and other documents on nearly 8000 animal facilities that the agency regulates, including Thomas D. Morris, from public databases. Some of the documents, which are maintained by USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS), have since been restored. But thousands remain hidden, and animal welfare advocates are now in court trying to force USDA to restore the records, and post all new documents, too. USDA officials said the removal was prompted by their commitment to “maintaining the privacy rights of individuals” identified in the documents, which animal rights groups, journalists, and others have regularly used to publicize the failings of AWA violators. And they say they are still reviewing the withdrawn documents, with an eye toward blacking out information that shouldn’t be public before reposting them. So far, APHIS has reposted inspection reports on most of the 983 research facilities that it regulates. But according to a 19 May analysis by the Animal Welfare Institute in Washington, D.C., it has not restored records covering 94% of the 3333 breeders and dealers that provide animals for the pet trade and, in some cases, research. “Are huge companies [that supply research animals] like Marshall Farms, Covance, Charles River online? Yes. The rest are not because they are licensed as individuals. This has chilling ramifications,” says Eric Kleiman, who conducted the analysis for the Animal Welfare Institute. Officials at Thomas D. Morris did not respond to repeated requests for comment. Two different federal judges—in California and Washington, D.C.—are considering lawsuits from animal welfare groups aimed at forcing USDA to immediately repost the retracted documents. Last week, in the California case, federal district court judge William Orrick announced his “inclination” to reject a request from groups led by the Animal Legal Defense Fund of Cotati, California, to require USDA to repost the documents while the court considers the merits of the case. The department’s privacy concerns seem “real,” Orrick said. Meanwhile, a judge in Washington, D.C., is mulling a request from groups led by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) of Norfolk, Virginia, to force USDA to turn over internal documents to the plaintiffs as they prepare their case. Observers say the fight highlights the growing tension between government transparency mandates and privacy worries in the internet age. Politicians who wrote decades-old federal privacy law likely hadn’t “contemplated the era of these massive, sprawling websites where agencies would routinely post enforcement information regarding not just companies, but individuals,” says Nathan Cortez, an expert on government disclosure policies at Southern Methodist University’s Dedman School of Law in Dallas, Texas. Agencies including the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Food and Drug Administration now routinely publish information about companies and individuals who are alleged to have violated federal law. And APHIS, which is charged with enforcing the AWA and the Horse Protection Act (HPA), followed suit. In 2010, it began posting all inspection reports and enforcement records. Although the agency typically blacks out the names of individual employees, it reveals facility addresses, the names of owners, and violations, sometimes in vivid detail. In a 2016 lawsuit against USDA, a Fort Worth, Texas, couple that owns a show horse enterprise called Contender Farms alleged that APHIS had violated their right to privacy by publishing a warning letter naming them as violators of the HPA, without first providing an opportunity to challenge the finding. The plaintiffs withdrew the suit after APHIS took down the horse records. But the case “reinforced” concerns among APHIS officials that its online document trove might “contain personal information implicating the privacy interests of individuals and closely-held businesses,” a USDA official wrote in an affidavit filed last month in the California court. Virtually all the documents that APHIS has not restored involve enterprises owned by an individual, not a company or university. The agency said in February that those seeking the removed documents should file Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests to obtain them. But APHIS regularly takes months, or even years, to respond to those requests, and such delays are unacceptable to watchdog groups that “use this information all the time to get the USDA to perform its job,” says attorney Katherine Meyer of Meyer Glitzenstein & Eubanks in Washington, D.C., who is representing PETA and allied plaintiffs in the Washington, D.C., case. “An inspection report documenting something that happened 5 years ago is really not useful to my clients.” The groups say USDA is violating 1996 FOIA provisions that require agencies to make available electronically any records that they have previously released and that are likely to be requested again. But USDA contended in a brief in the California case that its earlier en masse posting of documents was its choice and not required by FOIA. It’s not clear when the judges will issue decisions. But they face a delicate balancing act, says Speaking of Research, a group that supports animal research. “We strongly urge the publishing of information that increases transparency about animal research,” but “we are also aware that … this transparency has been abused by animal rights extremists to target institutions and breeders,” says Tom Holder, director of the group, which is based in London and Washington, D.C. So “any information provided publicly must be considered in light of these potential risks.”

NORCROSS, Ga., Feb. 17, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Immucor, Inc., a global leader in transfusion and transplantation diagnostics, today announced the launch of Pak Lx™, a qualitative Luminex®-based immunoassay that brings high-definition to platelet antibody testing. While the assay is CE marked and has previously been available in international markets, Pak Lx is now available as a research use only (RUO) kit in the United States. Platelets express a variety of polymorphic proteins that may become targets for antibodies as a result of pregnancy or transfusion. The presence of antibodies that bind to platelet glycoproteins is associated with life-threatening bleeding disorders, such as refractoriness to platelet transfusions, post-transfusion purpura (PTP), and fetal and neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia (FNAIT). The Pak Lx assay may be used to detect and differentiate IgG antibodies to Human Platelet Antigens (HPA-1, HPA-2, HPA-3, HPA-4, HPA-5), Glycoprotein (GPIV), and Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA Class I).  Once validated for use, Pak Lx may be used to support the selection of antigen negative or HLA-matched platelets for transfusion, providing a better matched unit to improve patient care. “Immucor is pleased to expand the offering of Pak Lx to the US market,” stated Christie Otis, Senior Transfusion Franchise Director at Immucor. “Pak Lx is an important addition to our platelet compatibility portfolio and provides another tool to enable laboratories to select antigen negative or HLA-matched platelets for transfusion. The availability of Pak Lx further supports Immucor’s portfolio for red cell and platelet compatibility testing.” Pak Lx availability demonstrates Immucor’s commitment to transfusion and transplant diagnostics.  Immucor’s total solution extends beyond platelet compatibility testing and includes a full line of automated immunohematology instruments including the NEO® and Echo® analyzers, PreciseType® (the only FDA licensed molecular immunohematology solution), and a broad portfolio of transplant solutions, including LIFECODES® for HLA typing and antibody screening, MIA FORA® for NGS HLA typing, and kSORT™ for post-transplant surveillance. Request a Demonstration To schedule a demonstration of Pak Lx, or any Immucor solution, Immucor clients may contact their local Molecular and Specialty Diagnostics Business Manager.  For more information about Immucor products, please contact your local Immucor representative or visit www.immucor.com. About Immucor Founded in 1982, Immucor is a global leader in transfusion and transplantation diagnostics that facilitate patient-donor compatibility. Our mission is to ensure that patients in need of blood, organs or stem cells get the right match that is safe, accessible and affordable. With the right match, we can transform a life together.
