TORONTO, July 14 /CNW/ - Northcore Technologies Inc. (TSX: NTI; OTCBB: NTLNF), a global provider of asset management technology solutions, announced today that it has completed the pre-requisites for making a draw down request under the $Cdn 6.0 million equity credit line, recently announced under a three year commitment provided by GEM Global Yield Fund Limited ("GEM"). The priority use of funds is for opportunities in: online marketplace creation for the resale of used fixed assets; enhancements to Northcore's patented online Dutch auction; platform support for asset management within the emerging Energy Internet; and for general working capital purposes needed to scale its core technology product sales of Asset Buyer, Asset Tracker, Asset Appraiser and Asset Seller.
"We discussed at our recent Annual Meeting of Shareholders that Northcore is in the final user acceptance stage with its lead client for the industry's first holistic remarketing platform, and are looking forward to expanding sales through GE Asset Manager to key customers. In addition, we have expanded our sales distribution partnerships into the oil and gas sector and are actively creating a mining sector marketplace. We are also putting increasing focus on our Asset Buyer government sales initiative and we have begun to work with a strategic partner in the Cleantech sector. We are optimistic about delivering revenues from these initiatives with enabling funds from GEM, as well as beginning to identify product sales opportunities within their associated business network," said Duncan Copeland, CEO Northcore Technologies.
Northcore also announced today that it is scheduled to release its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2010 on Wednesday, August 11, 2010, following the close of the markets.
