TPS Logistics and ASX join forces to revolutionize cargo logistic with eVTOL
DETROIT, June 13, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Airspace Experience Technologies (ASX), an aviation technology start-up, re-imagining personal air transportation and global logistics innovation and services leader, TPS Logistics have signed a memorandum of understanding targeted at evaluating the future market opportunities of introducing electric take off and landing, wing-lifted (eVTOL) aircraft into the logistics value-chain. "Studies estimate that by 2035, global air travel based inspections, goods, and passenger services have the potential to be a $74 billion market," said Jon Rimanelli, co-founder and CEO at ASX. "Almost 60 percent of that market will be driven by commercial good and services transport and we are excited to work with TPS Logistics on jointly disrupting the urban air logistics sector." From their respective Detroit based headquarters, the ASX team is developing its tilt-wing eVTOL aircraft the MOBi-One, while TPS Logistics is focused on the business of facilitating logistics and freight transportation solutions leveraging cloud based, customizable technology with actionable business analytics to help companies streamline their logistics operations and grow. "We want to continue to provide current and future customers with the highest value logistics experience," said Parker Stallard, Executive Vice President at TPS Logistics. "By leveraging our deep knowledge in logistics data and business models, we can ensure that the specifications of the ASX aircraft will support emergency response and other logistics services more efficiently and cost effectively than traditional helicopters." Today, vertical takeoff and landing capability for cargo and emergency response civilian use cases have been limited to rotorcraft such as helicopters, with limited range, high energy cost and noise footprint. By leveraging existing automotive EV technology and mass production techniques, ASX will be able to significantly reduce the cost of its eVTOL aircraft versus the solutions currently available in the market. With introducing TPS analytics and data in the development process ASX will further refine MOBi-One specifications to align with different cargo and profiles as well as optimize aircraft range and payload requirements. "By working together with TPS Logistics we plan to revolutionize cargo transport, reducing the carbon footprint and increasing capacity starting in the mid-west with demonstration flights as early as 2022." said Dr. Anita Sengupta, Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer at ASX. After completing the built and flight-tests of five subscale concept vehicles, ASX is now ready to begin the full-scale production design and commercial certification process for MOBi-One. The start-up recently launched a side-by-side Regulation CF and Regulation D Series Seed funding campaign with its partner SeedInvest. Proceeds of the seed round will be used to acquire key automotive EV technology, build a series of full-scale prototype and initiate Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification. About ASXAirspace Experience Technologies (ASX) is an aviation start-up re-imagining personal air transportation for everyone by offering eco-friendly, quiet, and connected eVTOL aircraft that leverage the perfect fusion of automotive innovation and aviation technology.

Entergy Recommends Shareholders Do Not Tender in Response to Mini-Tender Offer by TRC Capital Corporation
NEW ORLEANS, June 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Entergy Corporation (NYSE: ETR) has been notified of an unsolicited mini-tender offer by TRC Capital Corporation to purchase up to 1 million shares of Entergy common stock, representing approximately 0.53% of Entergy's outstanding shares as of April 30, 2019. TRC's offer price of $97.50 is 4.45% below the closing price of Entergy's common stock on June 14, 2019, the last trading day prior to the commencement of the offer. Entergy does not endorse TRC's unsolicited mini-tender offer and is in no way associated with TRC, its mini-tender offer or its mini-tender offer documentation. Entergy recommends shareholders do not tender their shares in response to TRC's mini-tender offer or, if shareholders have already tendered shares, that they withdraw their shares by providing the written notice described in the TRC mini-tender offer documents prior to the expiration of the offer, currently scheduled for 12:01 a.m. Eastern Time on July 17, 2019, because it was commenced at a below-market offer price, is highly conditional and is not subject to important investor protections. Mini-tender offers, such as TRC's offer, are not subject to many of the disclosure and procedural requirements afforded to larger tender offers, including the filing of disclosure and other tender offer documents with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and other procedures mandated by U.S. securities laws. Entergy urges common shareholders to obtain current market quotations for their shares of common stock, to consult their broker or financial advisor, and to exercise caution with respect to TRC's offer. The SEC has cautioned investors that some bidders making mini-tender offers at below-market prices are "hoping that they will catch investors off guard if the investors do not compare the offer price to the current market price." The SEC's advisory may be found on the SEC website at http://www.sec.gov/investor/pubs/minitend.htm. TRC has made many similar unsolicited mini-tender offers for shares of other public companies. Entergy urges broker-dealers and other market participants to review the SEC's recommendations to broker-dealers in these circumstances, which can be found on the SEC website at http://www.sec.gov/divisions/marketreg/minitenders/sia072401.htm and Information Memo Number 01-27 issued by the NYSE on September 28, 2001, which can be found on the NYSE website at https://www.nyse.com/publicdocs/nyse/markets/nyse/rule-interpretations/2001/01-27.pdf regarding the dissemination of mini-tender offer materials. Entergy requests that a copy of this news release be included with all distributions of materials relating to TRC's mini-tender offer related to shares of Entergy common stock.

Ameresco Completes 10 Megawatt Distributed Energy Security Project at Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island
June 19, 2019 18:24 UTC Energy infrastructure and upgrades improve resiliency and assure continuity of mission-critical operations at 8,000-acre recruit depot on the South Carolina coast FRAMINGHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Ameresco, Inc., (NYSE:AMRC), a leading energy efficiency and renewable energy company, today announced the completion of construction of a comprehensive energy resiliency and energy infrastructure project at the United States Marine Corps Recruit Depot (MCRD) Parris Island, South Carolina. The $91 million project, which required no upfront capital from MCRD PI, features resilient distributed energy systems designed to withstand potential storm and seismic conditions. This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20190619005698/en/ Pictured here, new central plant with microgrid and island mode capability providing 3.5 MW of electric and the full steam load required by MCRD Parris Island. (Photo: Business Wire) The Marine Corps depends on Parris Island, the only such training facility on the eastern seaboard, to turn approximately 20,000 recruits into Marines each year to support deployment schedules and maintain its operations. The distributed generation, energy storage, and secure microgrid controls that Ameresco designed and installed there have dramatically enhanced the site’s resilience, giving the installation the capacity to sustain its critical training operations when the local grid goes down. The project also saves the installation $6.9 million in annual utility and operational costs, reduces utility energy demand by 75%, and reduces water consumption by 25%. To achieve these results, Ameresco optimized utility consumption at facilities across the 8,000-acre installation with demand reduction measures. MCRD PI initiated this energy savings performance contract (ESPC), which leverages private capital through a Department of Energy contract vehicle, in 2015 with the competitive selection of Ameresco. Ameresco then worked with project stakeholders to replace an aging central plant with a 3.5 megawatt (MW) combined heat and power (CHP) plant and three diesel generators for backup generation. Nearly 20,000 solar modules at carport and ground-mount sites provide 5.5MW of power generation, along with shelter for more than 500 parking spaces for Depot staff and the visiting public. Ameresco also deployed a 4.0MW/8 MWH battery energy storage system (BESS) and an intelligent microgrid controls to assure power supply in the event of utility failures. “Resiliency at MCRD Parris Island means providing uninterruptible power in support of critical training operations,” said Nicole Bulgarino, Executive Vice President at Ameresco. “Distributed generation systems like the comprehensive solution we have just built there deliver a layered defense against threats to the power supply. Ameresco is proud to partner with the USMC to lead by example and demonstrate how a military installation can both reduce energy and enhance resiliency with this unique contract vehicle.” Ameresco will maintain responsibility for the operation and maintenance of these new energy assets for the duration of the 22-year performance period. To learn more about the project, visit http://www.ameresco.com/portfolio-item/parris-island/. About Ameresco, Inc. Founded in 2000, Ameresco, Inc. (NYSE:AMRC) is a leading independent provider of comprehensive services, energy efficiency, infrastructure upgrades, asset sustainability and renewable energy solutions for businesses and organizations throughout North America and Europe.
