U-Boat Worx launches 9-person flagship lithium-ion battery submersible NEXUS

Tag Template - News Hub PRO CoinGenius Hosts Virtual Crypto Event The Road To Mass Adoption

AMSTERDAM, Apr 21, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - Dutch submersible manufacturer U-Boat Worx (www.uboatworx.com) breaks the mould with the launch of the NEXUS series. U-Boat Worx is the market leader in private and commercial submersibles. Since 2017, the company has sold more than 20 of its highly successful Cruise Subs to private operators, resorts, and cruise lines.

Nexus Yellow Front Side

The NEXUS series (www.uboatworx.com/model/nexus-series) comprises two models featuring an ultra-large elliptical acrylic pressure hull with unrivalled passenger comfort. Seating up to eight passengers and one pilot, the NEXUS provides 25% more interior space than competing models. The NEXUS subs are depth-rated to 200 meters (650 feet).

Equipped with the latest lithium-ion battery technology, the subs can operate for up to 18 hours and dive up to ten times a day. 80 guests can participate in an unforgettable sub-sea adventure daily (www.uboatworx.com/model/nexus-series).

The unique revolving seating arrangement featured in the Cruise Subs has been replicated in the NEXUS. Passengers therefore always enjoy the best view, regardless of the direction the submarine is travelling. The NEXUS subs are designed as multi-directional, meaning they can manoeuvre in any direction without compromise. This is a distinguishing capability only achieved in U-Boat Worx submersibles. Ten silent thrusters provide the power required for top performance and unmatched speed.

The experience and knowledge gained from the development of the Cruise Subs has evolved the new features in the NEXUS series, including an XXL entrance hatch - the largest ever incorporated on a submersible of this size. For passengers of all ages, the entire boarding process has been streamlined, in keeping with U-Boat Worx's vision that everyone should be able to experience the oceans in a safe and comfortable manner.

A unique feature of U-Boat Worx' flagship submersibles is the optional passenger elevator, also integrated on the company's C-Researcher models.

Thanks to top-mounted diving tanks, the view abeam on both sides is unrestricted by floaters, with ample freeboard. This also leads to a stable boarding platform granting sufficient space for all occupants to stand on deck.

The NEXUS is optimised for ship-based launch and recovery, and can also be deployed from land and transported to dive sites.

In addition to the 9-person NEXUS, a marginally smaller and lighter 7-person version is available.

NEXUS - meaning a point of connection - bridges the gap between people and the ocean, providing a truly immersive aquatic encounter.

About U-Boat Worx
The 10 Submersible essentials (www.uboatworx.com/why-u-boat-worx-submarines)

For centuries, the Netherlands has been synonymous with world-class maritime innovation. U-Boat Worx is proudly continuing this tradition by leading the global submersible market. Since becoming an industry leader in submarine design, construction, and operations, we see our commitments to safety, quality and service as the major reasons for our ongoing success.

The desire to explore the deep has existed since the dawn of humanity. The popularization of scuba-diving brought the oceans within reach. Unlike scuba-diving, a manned submersible can take us deeper, in safety and comfort - without any risk of decompression.

The dream of creating a superior submersible, available to the general public, began in the 1980s. Bert Houtman, founder of U-Boat Worx, had the revolutionary idea to create submersibles that would not only be operated by the military or large oceanographic research institutes, but also for the private sector. He realized that to do that, he needed to build his own.

Kitchen Culture’s business transformation at risk – funds raised not accounted for

Tag Template - News Hub PRO CoinGenius Hosts Virtual Crypto Event The Road To Mass Adoption

SINGAPORE, Apr 21, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - As the single largest shareholder of Kitchen Culture Holdings Ltd. ("Kitchen Culture") with a 21.19% stake, OOWAY Group Ltd. ("OOWAY Group" or the "Group") shares the frustration of many shareholders who raised concerns over matters of internal controls and governance ahead of Kitchen Culture's recent Annual General Meeting held on 18 March 2022.

We are deeply disappointed by the findings of Baker Tilly Consulting (Singapore) Pte. Ltd.'s ("BTC") latest report which confirm our worst fears regarding the shocking matters of concern which were first revealed in June 2021 after Kitchen Culture's Audit Committee engaged BTC to review its internal controls.

In August 2020, Kitchen Culture entered into a sale and purchase agreement and a shareholder's agreement with OOWAY Group to acquire a 30% equity stake in OOWAY Technology Pte. Ltd. ("OOWAY Technology") at a purchase consideration of S$23.92 million (the "Purchase Consideration") to be satisfied by way of the allotment and issue of 90,000,000 new ordinary shares in the capital of Kitchen Culture at an issue price of S$0.2658 per ordinary share ("Acquisition").

Mr Liu Yanlong, representative for OOWAY Group, said, "We welcomed Kitchen Culture as a strategic investor in OOWAY Technology given the mutual benefits of the acquisition, which was in line with Kitchen Culture's diversification strategy and OOWAY Group's expansion in the ASEAN region. OOWAY Group provided an opportunity for Kitchen Culture to leverage our network and capabilities, as well as to participate in the significant growth potential of Big Data analytics and Artificial Intelligence."

Kitchen Culture's diversification strategy was crucial as it had long suffered from recurring losses and negative operating cash flow from its core business as a kitchen solutions provider for 8 years and was in a dire state at the time of the acquisition.

The combination of the newly raised funds and OOWAY Technology's gilt-edge technical capabilities would have provided new engines for growth and hastened the return to profitability for Kitchen Culture.

Prospective investors present at OOWAY Group-led investment roadshows, eventually took up equity in Kitchen Culture, with the expectation of the game-changing business diversification through the acquisition of OOWAY Technology. Unfortunately, the raised capital has not materialised into any effort in business transformation.

Instead, we are deeply disappointed with the findings of the BTC report, which revealed that the gaps in Kitchen Culture's financial operating procedures led to[2]:

- Risk of misuse of Kitchen Culture's funds
- Risk of unauthorised use of proceeds obtained from the S$19.23 million of funds raised
- Risk of diversion of raised funds to purposes outside business diversification purposes
- Risk of questionable debt repayments to third parties
- Lack of independence and checks and balances in approving and processing payments
- Lack of accountability and traceability over entertainment expenses
- Lack of documentation for personnel hiring and pay increments
- Inappropriate operating structure involving multiple family members as management staff

These risks which were unknown to us prior to the acquisition have had a major impact on our growth plans as ongoing audits, investigations and lawsuits require significant time and resources, a challenging situation further compounded by the historical losses. Furthermore, Kitchen Culture has suffered reputational damage as a result of these issues.

Kitchen Culture's last traded price of S$0.08 per share marks an unrealised loss of close to 70% or S$16.72 million for the OOWAY Group following the completion of the acquisition. On the other hand, OOWAY Technology's value has remained stable during this period, which is also Kitchen Culture's key asset. As OOWAY Technology continues its development and making encouraging progress to grow its business, the long-term value of Kitchen Culture's stake in OOWAY Technology remains fundamentally intact.

Mr Liu added, "As a shareholder of Kitchen Culture, we have sustained significant losses, but we remain committed to growing our business together with Kitchen Culture and intend to provide the funding support needed in the near term to allay going concern issues."

The latest BTC report has identified S$7.22 million as "unmatched". This is a staggering sum and OOWAY Group hopes that the Management of Kitchen Culture investigates further to get to the bottom of this issue, so that any and all discrepancies will be ultimately accounted for to shareholders.

The Commercial Affairs Department (CAD) has recently requested for copies of the BTC reports for further review and investigation. We call on the new Board of Kitchen Culture to continue its relentless efforts to strengthen internal controls and implement BTC's recommendations without delay and to cooperate with the CAD to leave no stone unturned in fully resolving all outstanding issues, so we can lead the company in business transformation again.

Our confidence in Kitchen Culture's new Board to safeguard the interests of shareholders remains strong, but it must work hard to rebuild long-term value for Kitchen Culture and its shareholders.

Heartland Solves ‘Traveling Salesman Problem’ To Help Farmers Optimize Planting, Harvesting, & Scouting With ReMap

Tag Template - News Hub PRO CoinGenius Hosts Virtual Crypto Event The Road To Mass Adoption

Detroit, Michigan, Apr 12, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - Heartland has revolutionized plot mapping technology to drive efficiency for farming operations across the world. Their ReMap technology (www.heartland.io/remap-farming-plot-map-online/) will reduce the time, money, energy, and carbon footprint required to farm.

The traveling salesman is a famous mathematical problem that focuses on finding the fastest route between multiple locations. This is a universal problem that can help optimize logistics networks across land, air, and sea. Solving this problem opens the door for Heartland to run mathematical calculations that have never been possible.

With a mathematically perfect plot map, farmers can ensure a reduction in fuel consumption, maintenance costs, and the time necessary to complete their planting, harvesting, and scouting. ReMap is a technology solution to a problem that farmers have faced for more than 12,000 years.

Heartland recently received a $360,000 USDA grant for soil health, carbon sequestration, and regenerative agriculture. This kickstarted a desire for Heartland to drive efficiency across the greater agriculture industry.

Heartland is sitting at the intersection of regenerative farming and sustainable manufacturing. ReMap technology will become a foundational tool to help Heartland drive the adoption of green chemistry across industries.

"Heartland's team is exploring the different applications of this computing technology to drive new material innovations." Says Heartland CEO, Jesse Henry. "This technology allows us to create never-before-seen solutions in agriculture, manufacturing, chemistry, and advanced materials."

Today, Heartland engineers hemp fibers as additives for plastics. The company is working with America's largest manufacturers and suppliers to integrate high-performance carbon-negative plastic additives into everyday products. The commercialization of Heartland's biomaterials will allow companies to predictably reduce their carbon footprint without compromising strength, weight, or price.

Heartland's vision is to become earth's most sustainable company. Their desire to create efficiency in hemp fiber and the greater agriculture industry has gone far beyond carbon sequestration. Heartland is developing the technology and insurance products to ensure that hemp can be efficiently grown, processed, and utilized.

Creating standards in agriculture technology, insurance, and finance will help to unlock the global distribution of commodity hemp materials. ReMap is a first-of-its-kind agriculture technology that solves an optimization problem from 1930.

"There are mathematical problems that scientists and engineers don't even bother trying to solve because they are too complex and require too much computation." Says Tim Almond of Heartland, "This will allow them to solve those problems with ease."

Large companies are spending billions on new innovations, but they are limited by the amount of time and computing power it takes to run calculations and simulations. The math behind Heartland's plot mapping technology can help those companies solve these same problems in seconds.

Today, Heartland's hemp additives are driving sustainable material innovation for many of America's largest manufacturers and suppliers. Heartland's technology breakthrough helps them develop a platform that solves some of the most impactful problems for the biggest companies.

About Heartland

Heartland is a material innovation company that engineers hemp fibers as additives for plastics. Heartland's additives help manufacturers exceed their sustainability mandates without compromising cost and performance. As an industrial hemp material processor, they work with farmers, manufacturers, and their suppliers to commoditize high-performance carbon-negative additives that can be used across various raw material supply chains. Heartland's products help companies manufacture using stronger, lighter, cheaper, and more sustainable materials. For more information, visit https://www.heartland.io.
