    Many years ago, in the nascent days of Kenway Consulting, I wrote a blog post about the topic of pledging allegiances.  I mentioned the movie “A Few Good Men,” in which a particular U.S. Marine recites the order of priority as it relates to his allegiances, i.e. Unit, Corp, God, Country. I then compared how those allegiances might be juxtaposed to decisions made in the workplace, e.g. Self, Team, Department, Company.

    NSR Anticipates Strong Growth in Smallsat Market Driven by Constellations, Despite Numerous Challenges

    CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Nov. 28, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NSR’s *Small Satellite Markets, 5^th Edition (SSM5),* released today, forecasts the market to yield $37 billion in cumulative revenues from smallsat manufacturing and launch services by 2027, with 6,500 smallsats set to launch during this time. Constellations will be the dominating factor of this growth, making up over 70% of the total market. While growth is anticipated across all applications, communications will drive the largest share of revenues, with some of the largest constellations planned in this segment.“New business models are opening new revenue streams and opportunities in the small satellite market,” notes NSR’s Senior Analyst, Carolyn Belle. “The relative simplicity, and the associated low-cost architecture, are enabling easier access to the space industry. By lowering the barriers to entry, this market is not only impacting the commercial industry, but it’s becoming a critical element of STEM education,” Belle adds.  Despite a 30% decline in launch rates in 2018, small satellites are expected to regain growth over the next decade as new companies in different tiers of both value and supply chains enter the market and unlock the promised value and solve current bottlenecks.

    Despite the overall demand growth, funding remains one of the biggest challenges for the small satellite market. Investors are more cautious about the durability of this architecture. “While a growing market, the small satellite industry does present highly challenging business cases. From LEO constellations to dedicated launchers, long-term sustainability remains one of the biggest concerns,” commented Shagun Sachdeva, NSR Analyst and co-author. Sachdev adds, “As the technology develops and small satellites grow in applicability, there will be a shift towards hybrid architectures - either through M&As or strategic alliances.” NSR considers the small satellite business model capable of challenging the status quo by bringing in new ideas and leveraging existing assets – both in space and on the ground – to derive more performance from established architectures.

    *About the Report*
    NSR’s *Small Satellite Markets, 5^th Edition (SSM5)* report leverages 10+ years of experience in tracking global satellite markets and via NSR’s proprietary database of small satellites, their applications and their launch providers to offer the most extensive view of the market. This report provides a detailed analysis of the current status and future trends within this sector, including a 10-year forecast for small satellites within the 1-500 kg mass range. SSM5 is an essential tool for all stakeholders in this market – new and established – who are looking to invest in or better understand the dynamic trends surrounding smallsats.

    HONG KONG, Nov 28, 2018 - (ACN Newswire) - Great Harvest Maeta Group Holdings Limited ("Great Harvest" or the "Group"; stock code: 3683.HK) today announces its unaudited interim results for the six months ended 30 September 2018 ("the review period").

    During the review period, the spot freight rate has increased due to the recovery of the operating environment of the global bulker shipping market, and the rise in dry bulk cargo market and China's import of coal. Revenue from spot freight has increased accordingly. Together with the reversal of the impairment losses of the Group's vessels as a result of the recovery in the marine transportation industry, the profit of the Group recorded approximately US$11.6 million. The revenue of the Group increased from approximately US$6.3 million for the six months ended 30 September 2017 to approximately US$8.2 million, representing an increase of approximately 31.7%. The average Daily TCE of the Group's fleet during the review period was approximately US$11,600 (1H 2017: approximately US$8,800)

    In succession of the level from last year, the spot freight rate for dry bulk marine transportation market remains at a higher level in 2018. The rising demand for marine transportation of bulk grains in South America and the maintenance and growth of China's imports of iron ore and coal supported and helped to maintain and increase the spot freight rate. The average BDI was 1,436 points from April to September 2018, representing an increase of approximately 38% as compared to last year. The market prediction and statistics from vessel broker companies expect the demand of dry bulk marine transportation can reach a growth of approximately 3% this year, as compared to the growth of fleet size of approximately 2%. The oversupply of vessels would soon be alleviated, and it is also a key factor for the rise of this year's spot freight rate.

    As at 30 September 2018, the Group's fleet comprised four panamax dry bulk vessels, namely GH FORTUNE, GH POWER, GH GLORY and GH HARMONY, with a total carrying capacity of approximately 319,923 dwt. The average age of the fleet is 12 years and the fleet maintained a high operational level with an occupancy rate of 99.7% during the review period. The average daily charter rate of the vessels was approximately US$11,596, representing an increase of approximately 32% as compared to the last corresponding period.

    Mr. Yan Kim Po, the Chairman of Great Harvest Maeta Group Holdings Limited said, "The Group will continue to uphold its proactive and prudent operating strategies and seek to charter out its vessels to reputable charterers while endeavouring to provide the best services to charterers, so as to maintain a favourable market image for the vessel fleet."

    On the other hand, the Haikou project of the Group is currently under the procedure of construction application as the Haikou local government has finalized its plans. The Group has planned to redevelop the Haikou project into "cultural and tourism real estate" project to construct villas, loft apartment, low density villas, retail, carpark and other ancillary facilities with approximately 130,000 square meters. In addition, the proposed investment of the Group's online hospitality services, online travel transaction services and real estate agency services business in Hainan, the PRC, has entered into a memorandum of understanding with two individuals in October 2018. It is believed that it can broaden the income spectrum of the Group.

    Mr. Yan concluded, "Given the fluctuation in spot freight market, the Group will maintain its prudent operating strategies by enhancing the daily management of vessels, providing better transportation services to customers and seeking for more reputable and reliable charterers at higher rates, thus generating more operational revenue for the Company. Meanwhile, the Group will strictly control operating costs and reduce all unnecessary expenses."

    Great Harvest Maeta Group Holdings Limited ("Great Harvest")
    The Group is principally engaged in chartering out its own dry bulk vessels and property investment and development. For the six months ended 30 September 2018, the Group's fleet size is 319,923 dwt, including 4 panamax dry bulk vessels, which are GH FORTUNE, GH POWER, GH GLORY and GH HARMONY, the average age of the Company's fleet is 12 years with the fleet occupancy rate at approximately 99.7%.

    *Kraken** Anticipates Follow-on Orders*

    ST. JOHN’S, Newfoundland, Nov. 28, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kraken Robotics Inc. (TSX-V: PNG) (OTCQB: KRKNF), is pleased to announce that Ocean Infinity has issued a $6.5 million purchase order to its wholly owned subsidiary, Kraken Robotic Systems Inc., for deep sea batteries. Under a $9 million deep-sea battery contract announced on August 1, 2018, Ocean Infinity issued an initial $2.5 million purchase order with the next $6.5 million purchase order expected in Q1 2019. Today Ocean Infinity has accelerated the delivery schedule, with all battery shipments now planned to start at the end of 2018 and finishing in Q3 2019. This is an acceleration of approximately six months from the previous schedule.

    In order to help facilitate the delivery schedule and Kraken’s working capital requirements as it scales battery production, Kraken will invoice Ocean Infinity in November and January for advance payments of approximately $5 million.

    *Ocean Infinity CEO Comments*
    Oliver Plunkett, Ocean Infinity President & CEO, said, “At Ocean Infinity, we own and operate the world’s most technologically advanced seabed data acquisition assets, capable of operating to extreme depths of up to 6,000 metres. In our drive to add value for our clients we are constantly striving to push the boundaries of what can be achieved with technology. Maximising underwater endurance is a critical aspect of our operational model. Using Kraken’s pressure tolerant gel encapsulation battery technology, we can increase our energy capacity by over 50% in the same physical form factor as our existing conventional batteries. From an operational perspective, this gives us considerable flexibility to optimise mission plans, increase area coverage, manage weather impact and ultimately increase value for our customers in even the most remote portions of the world’s oceans.”

    *Kraken CEO Comments
    *Karl Kenny, Kraken’s President and CEO, said, “Kraken Power’s unique pressure tolerant gel encapsulation technology for lithium polymer batteries provides an attractively priced, eco-friendly and superior alternative to oil compensated batteries currently used for subsea battery applications. We are very pleased to support Ocean Infinity’s AUV fleet battery upgrade. In simple terms, within the existing battery compartment footprint, our drop-in, field swappable batteries allow Ocean Infinity’s AUVs to increase underwater mission time from 50-55 hours to 80-85 hours.”

    *About the Ocean Infinity Battery Contract and Potential Expansion
    *Kraken will deliver batteries for five new Kongsberg Hugin Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) recently purchased by Ocean Infinity, for integration at the manufacturer’s facility in Norway. With the change in scheduling, these new vehicles will take some of the delivery slots initially intended for replacement of existing AUV fleet batteries. As such, Kraken expects a follow-on order from Ocean Infinity in the second half of 2019 for additional batteries and spares, beyond the initial $9 million contract. 

    *Kraken Robotics Plans to Increase Ownership in Kraken Power GmbH*
    The batteries for Ocean Infinity will be built by Kraken Power GmbH ("Kraken Power"), an entity in which Kraken currently holds a 19.9% interest. Kraken intends to increase its ownership position in Kraken Power to 75% by the end of 2018. This will be accomplished through the conversion of a convertible note of €110,000 into equity in Kraken Power as well as additional cash payment of €111,200. In addition, while Kraken only holds a 19.9% equity interest in Kraken Power at the end of Q3 2018, under IFRS 10 accounting rules relating to controlled entities, Kraken is required to consolidate Kraken Power financial results in Q3.

    *About Ocean Infinity
    *Ocean Infinity is a next generation offshore ocean survey and ocean exploration company using a fleet of autonomous underwater vehicles. Ocean Infinity provides a comprehensive seabed exploration system that is highly efficient and permits multi-tasking. Their comprehensive range of on-board systems and equipment permit continuous operation through to project completion, which gives them the capability to inspect, repair or recover discoveries made during a survey, eliminating the need for a second vessel.
