The Debt Financing is expected to be completed on or about February 6, 2014 and is subject to receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals, including the approval of the TSX, and satisfaction to all other customary closing conditions.

Intermap's GeoPro is a centralized data repository that integrates all types of geospatial and non-geospatial data within a secure and virtualized environment.

The software's policy-based log-in and control features enable administrators to support as many users as desired and set the content access to match the needs of their organization. GeoPro is powerful enough for the advanced GIS user, but simple enough for non-GIS users.
