TSXV: IEA As previously released the announcement contained a link to a PDF document which did not include 'Management's Discussion and Analysis'. The full PDF can now be found by clicking the link below. All other details remain unchanged NOT FOR RELEASE, PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION IN WHOLE OR IN PART DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY IN, INTO OR FROM ANY JURISDICTION WHERE TO DO SO WOULD CONSTITUTE A VIOLATION OF THE RELEVANT LAWS OR REGULATIONS OF SUCH JURISDICTION TSX-V, LSE-AIM: XEL 9 November 2012 Xcite Energy Limited ("Xcite Energy" or the "Company") Results for the 3 and 9 Month Periods Ended 30 September 2012 Xcite Energy announces its results for the 3 and 9 month periods ended 30 September 2012. Operational Highlights - Bentley pre-production well test successfully and safely concluded in September 2012, with initial well test results exceeding management expectations: - Water breakthrough better than expected (i.e. less water produced) - Extensive data gathered for reservoir model calibration and production facilities design, enabling optimisation of field development plan - Significantly improved understanding of oil, gas and water movement behaviour - Produced approximately 149,000 barrels of Bentley crude, which was combined with approximately 58,000 barrels of diluent. - 9/3b-7 and 7Z wells suspended for future use as production wells during Phase 1B and the Rowan Norway demobilised from the field, with all associated equipment off hire. Financial Highlights - Revenue generated of GBP13.3 million from the sale of the blended crude oil and diluent. - Net loss in the three month period of GBP0.57 million. Further increase in net assets through continued investment in the Bentley field development programme. - Cash of GBP54.6 million as at 30 September 2012, following net new equity capital and debt financing of GBP21.2 million in the three month period.Included in cash balances are amounts held in escrow of GBP44.0 million relating to the Bentley Phase 1A work programme, a significant amount of which is expected to be returned to the Company in due course. - Issue of an additional US$10 million of unsecured 14% loan notes to West Face Capital Inc. in the three month period, giving a total of US$60 million in the nine month period. - Signing of a US$155 million reserves based lending facility in June with a leading syndicate of lending institutions to provide a substantial part of the Phase 1B work programme funding requirement. Post Period Event UK Department of Energy and Climate Change has offered the Company licenses over Blocks 9/4 (part), 9/8b and 9/9f (split) as applied for in the UK 27th Offshore Licensing Round. These licences could add significant additional value to a Bentley hub development concept. Significant Work Ahead The Phase 1A programme was a highly successful, extensive and thorough pre-production well test, which has provided substantial quantities of valuable data.The Company's immediate priority is to continue to analyse this information in order to update the reservoir model and production profiles, which, together with the inclusion of recently acquired new 3D seismic data over the Bentley field and its surrounding prospects (including 27th Round licences), will form part of the updated reserves report (a Competent Person's Report) and the RBL banks review process, expected early in 2013. This data and analysis thereof will also be utilised in a data room in due course for the intended farm-out discussions, with the intention of commencing the initial engagement process by the end of the year. 2013 is therefore expected to be an important year for Xcite Energy, with an updated Competent Persons Report, discussions with potential farm-in partners, the re-submission of the updated Field Development Plan to DECC and the initiation of the Phase 1B work programme, the planning for which is well underway. The Company looks forward to updating investors on these important events.

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs.

Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...

The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
