("Jewett-Cameron") (JCTCF) today is pleased to announce that its Board of Directors has authorized the implementation of a share repurchase plan to purchase for cancellation up to 300,000 common shares through facilities of the NASDAQ Stock Market ("NASDAQ"). This amount represents approximately 11.6% of the 2,585,661 common shares outstanding. Since the 4th quarter of Fiscal 2010, the Company repurchased 2,196,293 common shares (adjusted for a 2 for 1 stock split effective May 1, 2013) under prior formal plans of repurchase.

    Transactions may involve Jewett-Cameron insiders or their affiliates executed in compliance with Jewett-Cameron's Insider Trading Policy.

    The share repurchase plan will be effected in accordance with Rule 10b-18 under the U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934, which contains restrictions on the number of shares that may be purchased on a single day, subject to certain exceptions for block purchases, based on the average daily trading volumes ("ADTV") of Jewett-Cameron's shares on NASDAQ. Purchases shall be limited to daily purchases in an amount up to 25% of the ADTV in its shares, or one "Block" purchase per week in lieu of the 25% of ADTV limitation for compliance with Rule 10b-18(b)(4). A "block" as defined under Rule 10b-18(a)(5) means a quantity of stock that, among other things, is at least 5,000 shares and has a purchase price of at least US$50,000.

    This share repurchase plan may commence on February 17, 2015 and will remain in place until August 14, 2015 but may be limited or terminated at any time without prior notice.

Through greater investor education and awareness we are confident its growth will continue. Don't be distracted by old debates like passive versus active, or new terminology like smart beta and liquid alts.

    Macau Operations

    In the fourth quarter of 2014, net revenues were $761.2 million, a 32.0% decrease from the $1,119.9 million generated in the fourth quarter of 2013. Adjusted property EBITDA in the fourth quarter of 2014 was $241.2 million, down 35.5% from $374.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2013.

    Table games results in Macau are segregated into two distinct reporting categories, the VIP segment and the mass market segment.

    Table games turnover in the VIP segment was $20.7 billion for the fourth quarter of 2014, a 39.9% decrease from $34.4 billion in the fourth quarter of 2013. VIP table games win as a percentage of turnover (calculated before commissions) for the quarter was 2.80%, within the expected range of 2.7% to 3.0% and below the 2.92% experienced in the fourth quarter of 2013. The average number of VIP tables decreased to 244 units in the fourth quarter of 2014 from 273 units in the prior year's fourth quarter due in large part to a renovation on a portion of the casino floor. Completion of this renovation is expected before Chinese New Year.

    Table games win in the mass market segment decreased by 15.0% to $249.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2014. Mass market table games win per unit per day decreased by 7.7% to $13,434 from $14,552 in the fourth quarter of 2013. Drop in the mass market segment was $634.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, down 8.3% from the 2013 fourth quarter, while the segment’s win percentage of 39.3% compares to 42.3% in last year’s fourth quarter. The win percentage in the fourth quarter of 2014 was the lowest hold rate since the third quarter of 2013. Customers purchase mass market gaming chips at either the gaming tables or the casino cage. Chips purchased at the casino cage are excluded from table games drop and will increase the expected win percentage. Because of the large number of chip purchases occurring at the casino cage, we believe the relevant indicator of volumes in the mass market segment should be ac

    CAMARILLO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

    Vitesse Semiconductor Corporation (VTSS), a leading provider of IC solutions to advance “Ethernet Everywhere” in Carrier, Enterprise and Internet of Things (IoT) networks, reported its financial results for the first quarter fiscal year 2015, ended December 31, 2014.

    “New product revenue continues on a solid trajectory reaching $16.2 million in the quarter, up 82% on a year to year basis. New products now represent 68% of our total product revenue,” said Chris Gardner, CEO of Vitesse. “Our customer profile continues to grow and evolve as our position strengthens in new, adjacent markets such as IoT and storage, which are literally reshaping our business and expanding our market opportunity. Our expanded sales team dramatically increased both opportunities and design wins, more than doubling the number of new customers in the pipeline, setting us on pace for another record year. As Ethernet propagates into new markets, our total addressable market will triple from approximately $1 billion today to over $3 billion by 2020.”

    “As anticipated, we saw a meaningful decrease in revenue from our legacy products in the first quarter and expect another smaller decline in the second quarter. These declines will be more than offset by new product revenue growth of 50% to 75% for the full fiscal year.
