Del

QUEBEC CITY, Aug. 30, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Robex Resources Inc. ("Robex" and / or "the Company") (TSXV: RBX / FWB: RB4) is pleased to announce that we have obtained bank financing from the group BNP PARIBAS in the amount of $11.5 million (CAD) bearing interest at the rate of 7% annually.

This loan will be used to repay the convertible debentures that matured on July 1st. As a result, 71,050,000 conversion rights related to these debentures will no longer be in effect, which significantly decreases the potential dilution. In addition, this loan is repayable over four years, and will reduce the financial burden of the Company because the convertible debentures bore interest at a rate of 10% annually.

The latter will also be used to repay the interest accrued on the convertible debentures maturing in November.

Pittsburgh, PA, Jan. 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Calgon Carbon Corporation today announced a global price increase, effective February 1, 2019, where contracts permit, on all activated carbon products and related equipment due to a continued escalation in raw material costs and transportation expenses.

WARRINGTON, UK, Jan. 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MPP Global, the technology company that delivers eSuite, the world’s smartest subscriber management & billing platform, announces the launch of pivotal new functionality which enables media organisations to seamlessly create and manage the sale of physical subscriptions.

This is inflexible for publishers and limits choice for their customers, restricting the ability to seamlessly create and offer digital and print subscription bundles. Despite increased consumer uptake of digital subscriptions, print still accounts for almost 90% of circulation revenues globally. To drive reader revenues successfully, publishers require functionality to execute complementar
