5 Artificial Intelligence ETFs

It might be surprising, but the phrase "artificial intelligence" has been around for over half a century — since 1955, in fact. It was intended to describe a new computer science subdiscipline.

But what exactly is artificial intelligence? In simple terms, artificial intelligence, or AI, means "simulated intelligence in machines." In other words, machines with AI are capable of thinking like people and mimicking their actions. The ideal characteristic of AI is the ability to rationalize.

Of course, that is a very broad definition of AI technology. There are actually at least 14 different applications of AI, which seems to prove that this market isn't going away anytime soon.

New Gold Mineralisation From First Aircore Drilling At Boodanoo, Identified Using Sensore’s Dpt® Technology

SensOre (SensOre or the Company) (ASX: S3N) is pleased to announce results from an early stage, first pass targeted air core drilling programme at its wholly owned Boodanoo Project, south-west of Mount Magnet in Western Australia. Assays have identified new gold mineralisation and are the cumulation of systematic exploration of one of the first mineral systems targets identified by SensOre’s Discriminant Predictive Targeting® (DPT) over the past two years. Exploration involved a systematic target test including ground gravity survey and surface sampling, geological mapping and finally an air core drilling program. The conventional program was augmented by data fusion and interrogation by machine learning applied to multielement geochemistry prior to drilling. Newly discovered mineralisation is associated with quartz sulphide (pyrite, pyrrhotite) veining in fresh medium grained amphibolite below a shallow weathering profile.

OpenText Announces Pricing of Notes Offering and Successful Term Loan Syndication as part of Micro Focus Acquisition Financing

OpenText™ (NASDAQ: OTEX), (TSX: OTEX) announced today that Open Text Corporation (the "Company" or "OpenText") has priced an offering (the "Notes Offering") of US$1 billion principal amount of 6.90% senior secured fixed rate notes due 2027 (the "Notes") in connection with its proposed acquisition (the "Acquisition") of Micro Focus International plc ("Micro Focus").

OpenText logo (PRNewsfoto/Open Text Corporation) (PRNewsfoto/Open Text Corporation)

OpenText further announced that it successfully fully syndicated its first lien term loan facility due 2029 (the "Term Loan") in the amount of US$3.585 billion , which will bear interest at a rate per annum equal to adjusted term SOFR plus 3.50%.

Upon closing of the Notes Offering and an amendment to the Term Loan credit agreement, the bridge loan agreement entered into in connection with the Acquisition will be terminated undrawn, and the entire previously announced US$4.585 billion aggregate debt financing package for the Acquisition will be finalized.

The Notes Offering is expected to close, and the Term Loan credit agreement is expected to be amended, on December 1, 2022 , subject in each case to customary conditions. The net proceeds from the Notes Offering, borrowings under the Term Loan and the Company's existing revolving credit facility, and cash on hand will be used to fund the Acquisition.

As previously announced, shareholders of Micro Focus have approved the terms of the Acquisition. The Acquisition is expected to close in the first calendar quarter of 2023, subject to regulatory approvals and customary closing conditions.

After giving effect to the Notes Offering and the above noted borrowings, following closing of the Acquisition, the Company's long-term debt would be approximately US$9.3 billion (consisting of approximately 46% fixed and 54% floating rate debt), with a weighted average interest rate of approximately 5.88% and a weighted average maturity of approximately 6 years. As previously announced, OpenText is targeting a net leverage ratio of less than three times within eight quarters following the closing of the Acquisition.

Additional Information

The Notes and the Term Loan will be guaranteed on a senior secured basis by OpenText's existing wholly-owned subsidiaries organized in the United States or Canada that borrow or guarantee OpenText's obligations under its senior credit facilities and, concurrent with or within one business day of the closing of the Acquisition, additionally by Open Text UK Holding Limited. The Notes and related guarantees will be secured on the same basis as the Company's senior credit facilities.

The Notes and related guarantees will not be registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"). The Notes and the related guarantees are being issued pursuant to Rule 144A and Regulation S under the Securities Act. The Notes and related guarantees may not be offered or sold within the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, U.S. persons (as defined in Regulation S under the Securities Act), except to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers in reliance on the exemption from registration provided by Rule 144A under the Securities Act and to certain persons in offshore transactions in reliance on Regulation S under the Securities Act. The Notes have not been and will not be qualified for sale to the public by prospectus under applicable Canadian securities laws and, accordingly, any offer and sale of the Notes in Canada will be made on a basis which is exempt from the prospectus requirements of such securities laws. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell, or the solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of, any securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration, qualification or exemption under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction.
