TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Nov. 9, 2016) - Emerita Resources Corp. (the "Company" or "Emerita") (TSX VENTURE:EMO) is pleased to announce that following the unanimous ruling by the Provincial Court of Seville (the "Court") (See Emerita's October 27, 2016 press release), the Court has served "imminent judicial notice" to five officials of the Government panel (the "Panel") that were directly involved in the awarding of the Aznalcóllar public tender to a subsidiary of the group comprised of Minorbis and Grupo Mexico (collectively, "Minorbis-Grupo Mexico"). Such notice has also been served to two representatives of Minorbis. In Spain, imminent judicial notice provides formal prior notice to individuals that criminal charges against them are pending in the near future. The Court has also engaged the "Unidad Centro Operativo (UCO) de la Guardia Civil" (Spain's national police force) to investigate the alleged cash payments made from Grupo Mexico to Minorbis and to clarify Minorbis' role in the tender process. The Direccion General de Industria, Energia y Minas (the Andalucian government agency responsible for the administration of the Aznalcóllar public tender) has been asked by the Court to submit a copy of the Panel's final resolution that awarded the tender to Minera Los Frailes (a company that did not participate in the Aznalcóllar public tender process) for the Court's review. Joaquin Merino, President and CEO of Emerita, commented: "This is a very important step for the Company. The laws governing public tenders in Spain are very clear: if it is determined that there was a commission of a crime in the awarding of a tender, that bid shall be declared invalid and the tender must be awarded to the next qualified bidder. In the Aznalcóllar tender, we believe that Emerita is the only qualified bidder. The Company welcomes the Court's review of all matters related to the Aznalcóllar tender process." David Gower, Emerita's Chairman, stated: "Emerita remains committed to developing the Aznalcóllar project. Emerita's proposal was prepared by more than 70 professionals and comprised over 10,000 pages and 300 maps, plans and sections, covering all aspects of the proposed project development. This included a strong emphasis on environmental and water management and community involvement. We look forward to working with the community and the government agencies to develop Aznalcóllar into a modern, safe and environmentally responsible operation." The key focus of the Aznalcóllar project, as proposed by Emerita, would be the development of the Los Frailes deposit as an underground mining operation. The deposit thickness ranges between 30 and 90 metres. The thickest section of the ore body lies below 150 metres depth from surface. The Los Frailes and the previously mined Aznalcóllar deposits are both open for further expansion by drilling at depth, as historical drilling was primarily constrained to depths accessible by open pit mining. The historical Los Frailes open pit mineral resource, as calculated by the previous operator of the mine, was estimated to be 71 million tonnes grading 3.86% zinc, 2.18% lead, 0.34% copper and 60 ppm silver. A review of the historical drilling data indicates the potential existence of a higher grade portion of the resource that is estimated to contain 20 million tonnes grading 6.65% zinc, 3.87% lead, 0.29% copper and 84 ppm silver. This higher grade resource has been modeled by Emerita and would be the focus for the underground mining operation (see Figure 1). A qualified person, as defined in National Instrument 43-101, has not done sufficient work on behalf of Emerita to classify the historical estimate as a current mineral resource and Emerita is not treating the historical estimate as a current mineral resource or mineral reserve. The resource estimate is a historical estimate and should not be relied upon. A summary of the historical resource estimate is available on the Government of Andalucia's website in a report prepared by the prior operator of the Aznalcóllar Project entitled "Proyecto de Explotacion Yacimiento Los Frailes, Memoria Andaluza de Piritas, Boliden- Apirsa, Octubre 1994" (Los Frailes Development Project Report, Boliden-Apirsa, October 1994) along with subsequent resource estimate updates, the latest being from 2000. Note - there is a figure associated with this release which is available at the following link: http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/161108_EMO_Figure1.pdf About the Ruling on the Aznalcóllar Appeal The appeal was heard by four judges of the Court who ruled unanimously in a 59 page judgement to overturn the lower court's finding that there was not sufficient evidence to pursue criminal charges. The judges' decision was based on: (i) Minorbis-Grupo Mexico failing to submit the necessary documentation as required by the tender process; (ii) a failure by the Panel to award the Aznalcóllar project based on the parameters and criteria of the tender process; and (iii) granting the mining rights to the Aznalcóllar project to Los Frailes Mining, a company that did not participate in the tender process, contravened applicable laws governing public tenders in Spain. The judges found that there was evidence of gross negligence and misconduct and indicated that there may be evidence of possible corruption and prevarication. As such, the Court has ordered the criminal case to be reopened against the Panel.

Last month Luxury Society (http://www.luxurysociety.com) and Digital Luxury Group (http://www.digitalluxurygroup.com) hosted the second edition of the Luxury Society Keynote event at the Four Seasons Hotel Pudong in Shanghai. Over 150 luxury industry executives hailing from luxury and premium brands such as Dior, Swarovski, Bulgari, LVMH, and more, were delighted with a dynamic afternoon of keynote speeches, exclusive industry data releases, insider perspectives, and engaging dialogue with industry experts and professionals. E-commerce is changing. This was the key message received from a number of speakers. Thibault Villet, CEO of Mei.com, the leading luxury fashion e-commerce platforms in China and recently invested in by Alibaba, shared that their livestreamed show in collaboration with TMall was a successful approach to selling. 65% of the products featured during the livestreamed event were quickly sold out. Arthur Zhang, CEO of UCO Cosmetics, a leading platform for luxury and premium beauty sales believes that the early stage e-commerce model (simply providing a platform to sell products online) is dead. Luxury brands need to utilize new technologies and offer different experiences to their consumers. Augmented reality, virtual reality, and livestreaming are key technologies being experimented with and improved upon in China today. As highlighted by Pablo Mauron, Partner & Managing Director of DLG China during his address to the audience, “the millennial generation in China, which already accounts for 300 million people in China, seeks experiences and emotional connection, they’re not just a bystander. As a result, livestreaming has become a medium for them to express themselves.” Mauron went on to share examples on how brands such as Maybelline, Montblanc, Swarovski and Mei.com are taking advantage of these new opportunities. Social CRM is allowing highly-targeted messaging and engagement. As evidenced by John Hamilton, Director of Marketing Communications for Four Seasons Hotels in Asia Pacific, the luxury hotel chain has been gaining meaningful data about their customers, which in turn has driven growth. This is thanks to taking the past year, through trial-and-error and optimization, to define a CRM-led content strategy on WeChat. Celebrity and KOL (Key Opinion Leader) partnerships can make a big impact in China. Qing Dai, Commercial Director for Easy Entertainment, shared with the audience her experience of partnering luxury brands with appropriate celebrities. One of Easy Entertainment’s most successful was in joining up Cartier with Lu Han, the well-known singer and actor with a massive following. As pointed out by Wan (Grace) Zhang, Baidu’s General Manager for East China, Cartier is the most searched luxury watch brand among a generation born between 1990 - 2000. This lead ahead of the competition is heavily linked to their collaboration with Lu Han. *PDF presentations, conference videos, and images from the day’s event are available upon request.* The conference’s speakers included: Arthur Ho, General Manager, Four Seasons Hotel Pudong, Shanghai Arthur Zhang, CEO, UCO Cosmetics Casey Hall, Writer, Editor, & Author, Women’s Wear Daily David Sadigh, Founder & CEO, Digital Luxury Group Di Fu, Senior Project Manager, Baidu Jenny Tu, VP of Sales, Yixia Tech / YiZhiBo John Hamilton, Director, Marketing Communications APAC, Four Seasons Hotels Nikolaj Schnoor, Managing Director Asia Pacific, Lindberg Eyewear Oosha Zheng, Client Engagement Director, Blackbow Pablo Mauron, Partner & Managing Director China, Digital Luxury Group Robin Kerawala, Partner, Kung Fu Data Thibault Villet, Co-Founder & CEO, Mei.com Vanessa Qian, Digital Manager, Sephora China Wan (Grace) Zhang, General Manager, Baidu Amongst the attendees were brands and companies such as: A Lange & Söhne, Alexandre de Paris, Baume & Mercier, Bottega Veneta, Bulgari, Cartier, Carl F. Bucherer, Chanel, Chaumet, Conde Nast, Corum, De Beers, Dior, Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts, Hublot, Loewe, LVMH, Marc Jacobs, Massimo Dutti, MCM, Mei.com, Michael Kors, Montblanc, Nars, Net-a-Porter, Nike, Plaza 66, Puyi Optical, Qeelin, Richard Mille, Sephora, Shiseido, Swarovski, TAG Heuer, Tiffany & Co., UCO Cosmetics, Vacheron Constantin, Vilebrequin, and Zenith About Luxury Society Luxury Society, published by Digital Luxury Group, is the preferred online destination of luxury brand executives when it comes to embracing digital and the impact of technology on the luxury industry.

BETHESDA, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ProShares, a premier provider of ETFs, announced today forward and reverse share splits on 13 of its ETFs. The splits will not change the total value of a shareholder’s investment. All forward splits will apply to shareholders of record as of the close of the markets on Jan. 9, 2017, payable after the close of the markets on Jan. 11, 2017. The funds will trade at their post-split prices on Jan. 12, 2017. The ticker symbols and CUSIP numbers for the funds will not change. The forward splits will decrease the price per share of each fund with a proportionate increase in the number of shares outstanding. For example, for the 2-for-1 splits, every pre-split share will result in the receipt of two post-split shares, which will be priced at one-half the net asset value (“NAV”) of a pre-split share. The following table shows the effect of a hypothetical 2-for-1 split: Six ETFs will reverse split shares at the following split ratios: All reverse splits will be effective at the market open on Jan. 12, 2017, when the funds will begin trading at their post-split price. The ticker symbols for the funds will not change. All funds undergoing a reverse split will be issued new CUSIP numbers, listed above. The reverse splits will increase the price per share of each fund with a proportionate decrease in the number of shares outstanding. For example, for a 1-for-4 reverse split, every four pre-split shares will result in the receipt of one post-split share, which will be priced four times higher than the NAV of a pre-split share. The following table shows the effect of a hypothetical 1-for-4 reverse split: For shareholders who hold quantities of shares that are not an exact multiple of the reverse split ratio (for example, not a multiple of 4 for a 1-for-4 reverse split), the reverse split will result in the creation of a fractional share. Post-reverse split fractional shares will be redeemed for cash and sent to your broker of record. This redemption may cause some shareholders to realize gains or losses, which could be a taxable event for those shareholders. ProShares has been at the forefront of the ETF revolution since 2006. ProShares now offers one of the largest lineups of ETFs, with more than $27 billion in assets. The company is the leader in strategies such as dividend growth, alternative and geared (leveraged and inverse). ProShares continues to innovate with products that provide strategic and tactical opportunities for investors to manage risk and enhance returns. Geared (Short or Ultra) ProShares ETFs seek returns that are either 3x, 2x, -1x, -2x or -3x the return of an index or other benchmark (target) for a single day, as measured from one NAV calculation to the next. Due to the compounding of daily returns, ProShares' returns over periods other than one day will likely differ in amount and possibly direction from the target return for the same period. These effects may be more pronounced in funds with larger or inverse multiples and in funds with volatile benchmarks. Investors should monitor their ProShares holdings consistent with their strategies, as frequently as daily. For more on correlation, leverage and other risks, please read the prospectus. Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. ProShares ETFs are generally non-diversified, and each entails certain risks, which may include risk associated with the use of derivatives (swap agreements, futures contracts and similar instruments), imperfect benchmark correlation, leverage and market price variance, all of which can increase volatility and decrease performance. Short positions lose value as security prices increase. Narrowly focused investments typically exhibit higher volatility. Investments in smaller companies typically exhibit higher volatility. Smaller company stocks also may trade at greater spreads or lower trading volumes, and may be less liquid than stocks of larger companies. There are additional risks related to commodity investments due to large institutional purchases or sales, and natural and technological factors such as severe weather, unusual climate change, and development and depletions of alternative resources. Certain derivative instruments will subject the fund to counterparty risk and credit risk, which could result in significant losses for the fund. Please see summary and full prospectuses for a more complete description of risks. There is no guarantee any ProShares ETF will achieve its investment objective. Investing in ETFs involves a substantial risk of loss. UCO, SCO and UVXY are not investment companies regulated under the Investment Company Act of 1940 and are not afforded its protections. Please read the prospectus carefully before investing. These ETFs generate a K-1 tax form. UVXY is intended for short-term investment horizons, and investors holding shares over longer-term periods may be subject to increased risk of loss. The assets the ETF invest in can be highly volatile, and the fund may experience large losses. There have been potential negative impacts from rolling futures positions and extended periods where the strategy utilized by the ETF have caused significant and sustained losses. The value of the shares of the fund relate directly to the value of, and realized profit or loss from, the financial instruments and other assets held by the fund. Fluctuations in the price of those assets could adversely affect an investment in the shares. The level of the VIX has historically reverted to a long-term mean (i.e., average), and any change in the VIX will likely continue to be constrained. As such, the potential upside of exposure to VIX futures may be limited and any gains subject to significant and unexpected reversals. Several factors may affect the price and/or liquidity of VIX futures and other assets, including: economic, financial, political, regulatory, geographical, biological or judicial events that affect the level of VIX futures indexes or prevailing market prices and forward volatility levels in U.S. stock markets, the S&P 500 or its securities, and prevailing market prices of options on the S&P 500 and the VIX, the VIX itself, relevant VIX futures contracts, or any other financial instruments related to the S&P 500, VIX, or VIX futures; interest rates; inflation rates and investors' expectations concerning inflation; supply, demand, and hedging activities in the listed and OTC equity derivatives markets; disruptions in trading of the S&P 500, its futures or options; and contango or backwardation in the VIX futures market. Carefully consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of ProShares before investing. This and other information can be found in their summary and full prospectuses. Read them carefully before investing. This information must be accompanied or preceded by a current ProShares Trust II prospectus (http://www.proshares.com/funds/trust_ii_prospectuses.html).

A Hubble image of a field of distant galaxies. A new study of the gas content in galaxies so distant their light has been traveling for about ten billion years suggests that the processes converting gas into stars is about the same back then as in the local universe. Credit: NASA, ESA, G. Illingworth (UCO/Lick & UCSC), R. Bouwens (UCO/Lick & Leiden U.), and the HUDF09 Team The first stars appeared about one hundred million years after the big bang, and ever since then stars and star formation processes have lit up the cosmos. When the universe was about three billion years old, star formation activity peaked at rates about ten times above current levels. Why this happened, and whether the physical processes back then were different from those today or just more active (and why), are among the most pressing questions in astronomy. Since stars are made from gas, the gas content of galaxies is a measure of their star formation potential and (at least in the local universe) the fraction of matter in form of gas, the "gas fraction", is a measure of the star formation capability. Gas in galaxies is depleted as new stars are formed and as some of it is blown out of the system by supernovae or by winds; gas can also be added by infall from the intergalactic medium. These processes are roughly understood in the local universe, mostly because the galaxies are bright and close enough to be studied in detail. For galaxies in the peak epoch of star formation, the evolution of the gas fraction is much less well constrained. Measuring the gas content is often done with observations of carbon monoxide, an abundant gas molecule, but in the early universe it is difficult to do because the distances make the lines faint, while the cosmic redshift pushes the usual diagnostic transitions to wavelengths that are beyond the capability of current facilities. Francesca Civano and a team of her colleagues used the large ALMA millimeter facility to study the gas fractions in a set of forty-five massive galaxies in the cosmic epoch of peak star formation. Although the diagnostic emission lines from the gas were too faint to study, the team used the strong dust continuum as a proxy, arguing from other results that the ratio of gas to dust was reasonably well understood. The gas fractions for this set of galaxies were found to be quite similar to the values in other massive galaxies, which was somewhat of a surprise because some evolutionary trends in gas fraction had been expected. Their other important result is that the relationship between the gas fraction and star formation activity is in good agreement with current models and, according to the scientists, implies that a single star formation prescription applies from the local universe out to at least as early as the peak epoch about three billion years ago.

"We're inducting two exceptional players, two very successful coaches from the Division II, NAIA and Junior College divisions, and another individual in Nick Bollettieri that would surely be on the Mount Rushmore of greatest and most important tennis coaches of all time. "We always love it when the NCAA Championships return to Athens and we get to induct a class here at the home of the Hall of Fame, where so many great players have played in so many big matches," added Frierson. "A lot of us remember well watching James Blake and Matias Boeker perform here at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex and it's going to be a thrill to put the perfect coda on their careers by adding them to the Hall of Fame." COACHES Francis Baxter -- Coach/University of Central Oklahoma (men: 1970-2006, women: 1980-2006). Francis Baxter enjoyed tremendous success during his long tenure as tennis coach at UCO, directing the men's program for 36 years (1970-06) and women for 26 years (1980-2006). Prior to coaching college tennis, he spent 14 years coaching high school tennis and won three state titles.

He was inducted into the Missouri Valley Tennis Association Hall of Fame in in 1991 and the Central Oklahoma Hall of Fame in 2009. Bill Otta, Coach/Saddleback College (1975-2000). One of most accomplished coaches in the history of community college tennis, Otta became the first tennis coach in Saddleback College's history when he founded the program in 1975. He finished his career with an overall record of 383-74 (.836), including a conference record of 254-20 (.927) with the men's program. He spent a total of 22 years as men's coach and three years as women's coach. His men's teams accounted for 17 conference championships, 10 regional championships, and eight state championships. After resurrecting the women's program, he finished with a 43-12 (.782) record in three seasons, claiming two more conference titles. Otta earned both California Coaches Association Coach of the Year and Wilson/ITA National Community College Coach of the Year honors during his career.

In 1999 Blake was the top player in collegiate tennis, earning ITA Player of the Year honors, as well as being an All-American in singles and doubles. He also reached the finals of the NCAA singles tournament that year, falling in three sets to 2015 Hall of Fame inductee Jeff Morrison of Florida. In addition, Blake won the ITA All-America Championships in singles and doubles and the ITA Rolex National Indoor title.

He also earned a singles win in the 2007 Davis Cup finals, helping the United States claim the cup for the first time in 12 years. In all, Blake played spent eight years on the Davis Cup squad. The Yonkers, N.Y., native, long one of the most popular players on tour, had his best Grand Slam results close to home. Of his three quarterfinal appearances in majors, two came at the U.S. Open. Matias Boeker, Georgia (2000-02). One of the few Triple Crown winners in history, Boeker in 2001 led the Bulldogs to the NCAA team title and then captured the singles and doubles (with Travis Parrott) championships.

In 2002 he became the first player since another Bulldog, Mikael Pernfors in 1984-85, to win back-to-back NCAA singles titles. An All-American after all three seasons at Georgia, Boeker won his final 23 matches for the Bulldogs and posted a career singles record of 108-25. In 2015 Boeker was inducted into Georgia's illustrious Circle of Honor, joining ITA Hall of Famers Dan Magill, Allen Miller and Al Parker. CONTRIBUTOR Nick Bollettieri, Spring Hill College. Bollettieri's contributions to the sport are countless, though we might begin with his legendary tennis academy in Florida (founded in 1978) that has trained over 1,500 collegiate players and counting. The IMG Academy, formerly Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy, was the first full-time tennis boarding school to combine intense training on the court with a custom-designed academic curriculum. Many of his former players went on to become ITA National Champions, including players like David Wheaton (Stanford) and Cecil Mammit (USC). His coaching protégées include over 25 former players who have gone on to become college coaches at various levels, including Carlos Drada (Kentucky women, 2006-present), Cedric Kauffman (Kentucky men, 2012-present) and Chris Garner (Amherst). He hosted the initial planning session of key ITA coaches in 1979 at The Colony in Longwood Key, Florida that led to the forming of the ITA Board of Directors. Following Rolex sponsorship of the ITA All-Star Awards Outing & Luncheon in 2002-2003 at the West Side Tennis Club, Bollettieri personally raised the necessary money that allowed the continuation of the luncheon. Bollettieri has also spoken at the ITA Coaches Convention almost every year since its inception. The ITA Men's Collegiate Tennis Hall of Fame is housed at the University of Georgia's Henry Field stadium in Athens. The late, legendary Georgia men's coach and Hall of Fame member Dan Magill served as curator and chairman of the Hall of Fame. The current curator is John Frierson. The ITA Men's Hall of Fame, which includes over 1,800 rare photos, inducted its first class in 1983 and has inducted more than 260 players, coaches and contributors since then. Players are eligible for election to the Hall of Fame 10 years after the conclusion of their participation on the team, and once they are no longer participating on the pro tour. Coaches are eligible immediately following retirement. The main criteria for election are college accomplishments as well as honors earned after college. About The ITA The Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) is committed to serving college tennis and returning the leaders of tomorrow. As the governing body of college tennis, the ITA oversees men's and women's varsity tennis at NCAA Divisions I, II and III, NAIA and Junior/Community College divisions.
