Killexams : From capex to opex: Storage procurement options bloom

We are in an age of unprecedented flexibility in storage procurement. The cloud has been a huge driver, making the concept of pay-as-you-go a norm of far-reaching influence.

The fundamental pull of pay-as-you-go is flexibility in use, deployment, upgrades, scalability, speed of development and roll-out, and with the promise of better cost efficiency.

Storage has long been the most monolithic of components, dependent on forklift upgrades and multi-year refresh cycles, and all the disruption that comes with them.

But storage suppliers have adapted. Customers can have capacity delivered in much more flexible ways, with procurement options that range from full ownership – which sectors such as the public sector need – to pay-as-you-go with storage capacity and performance upgrades triggered via AIOps monitoring.

In this article, we look at consumption model-based purchasing – primarily for on-site hardware – and what is on offer from the main suppliers.

Storage continuum: Own-it-outright to as-a-service 

What we are seeing among storage suppliers is the emergence of consumption models of purchasing for on-site capacity that mirror the ways we buy cloud services.

Cloud – in the sense of services delivered remotely – is not always suited to the ways customers work. Some avoid the cloud for reasons of performance, compliance, or risk to security or availability.

And so, although true pay-as-you-go storage may have its roots in the cloud, there are now on-site options that bring the same levels of flexibility.

These can range from opex-based consumption models in which the hardware remains the supplier’s property and customers pay only for the capacity they use, to fully owned capex spend but where hardware upgrades, as required, are built in.

At the opex end of things, customers usually commit to base levels of usage, while upgrades to storage and controller hardware are delivered as required. 

At the capex end of the spectrum, customers can purchase storage hardware outright. But here, some suppliers now offer the option to buy the hardware while still benefiting from upgrades to storage hardware, with monitoring and predictive analytics.

Supplier consumption model options

If customers want the pure pay-as-you-go route, they should look for offers that put hardware in their datacentre but charge only for capacity used. Usually there will be a minimum capacity commitment and term, with deployed storage monitored by AIOps tools for maintenance and to trigger hardware upgrades. 

But if customers want to purchase storage hardware outright, there are a couple of major options. You can buy storage in a capex transaction and then pay only for capacity used.

This option brings the ability to own equipment outright while also buying capacity on a pay-as-you-go basis and benefiting from non-disruptive hardware and software upgrades.

Also, in some cases it is possible to own the hardware outright and get non-disruptive hardware and software upgrades when required. This allows for a longer lifespan in the storage deployment and as the organisation grows, it can scale as needed.

Dell EMC Apex Flex on Demand

Dell EMC’s consumption model for hardware is Apex Flex on Demand. This allows customers to select from block, file and object storage hardware, plus data protection appliances.

Customers work with Dell EMC to determine a “committed capacity” and “buffer capacity” that is likely to be required in the future. Raw and usable capacity data is measured at component level using automated tools installed with the hardware. Daily averages are calculated and a monthly average then derived from that. Dell EMC promises to cap monthly billing at 85% of total installed capacity.

HPE Greenlake

HPE GreenLake delivers preconfigured hardware and software, then manages the system during its lifecycle, with payment via a monthly subscription fee.

Storage offered includes block, file and object which includes HPE Primera high-end flash, HPE Nimble all-flash and hybrid-flash, Simplivity hyper-converged, Qumulo scale-out storage, and StoreOnce data protection appliances.

Storage from the GreenLake consumption model fits in alongside the whole raft of HPE’s datacentre offer. So, GreenLake comes with the full range of the HPE offer behind it, from composable infrastructure such as HPE Synergy, third-party software and services and professional and operational services from HPE Pointnext.

Hitachi Vantara

Hitachi Vantara’s Flex plans offer its storage hardware via purchase or lease, as well as consumption models. The latter is EverFlex Consumption and is part of its X-as-a-service offer (X = everything), which varies depending on whether infrastructure is managed and monitored by the customer or Hitachi, respectively. Both of these are pay-per-use, cloud-like models.

IBM

IBM offers Storage as a Service and Storage Utility.

Storage as a Service can work across on-premise datacentre and hybrid cloud and is based on IBM FlashSystem hardware. It comes with a base level to meet current needs plus 50% on top of that pre-installed. Base and expansion capacity are charged at the same rate.

Storage Utility is a pay-per-use model that delivers 200% over base needs capacity on day one. The idea is that datacentre upheaval is avoided by over-provisioning and then using IBM Storage Insights to monitor capacity needs.

Customers pay only for what they use and if their data needs shrink during any month, the bill will reflect capacity usage, with a minimum “base”. The purported benefit of over-provisioning means additional capacity is readily available, at least within the contract period.

NetApp Keystone

NetApp emphasises the cloud element of its consumption model, Keystone, which offers hardware in various non-capex formats on-premise as well as cloud capacity.

Keystone payment options range from pay outright for the hardware (Flex Pay), through Flex Subscription pay-as-you-go, which includes cloud capacity, and Flex Utility, which aligns costs to usage.

A range of service levels is available and billing is for predicted committed capacity, plus pay-per-use for burst capacity with bundle pricing that includes hardware, core OS and support for file, block, object and cloud storage services.

NetApp’s Active IQ dashboard allows customers to monitor and manage storage usage, provision storage, set data protection policies, review burst capacity, usage and billing, and request further capacity and services.

NetApp recently added BlueXP, which provides a single control plane in which all NetApp storage is visible. That includes on-site Ontap (NAS, etc), E-Series (flash-equipped SAN) and StorageGrid (object storage), as well as NetApp storage in AWS, Azure, Google and IBM public clouds.

Pure Storage

Pure Storage has three as-a-service-like offerings, all under the Evergreen brand.

Evergreen//Forever is for customers that want to purchase hardware outright, but with lifetime upgrades.

Evergreen//Flex is where hardware is purchased but capacity bought on a pay-as-you-go basis. Capacity can be specified and paid for, and delivered on any Pure hardware that can host it. So, in theory, Flex allows customers to use capacity in any of their arrays.

Evergreen//One – formerly Pure-as-a-service – unifies on-premise and public-cloud storage resources in a single subscription to provide block, file and object storage. Customers pay only for what they use, in terms of effective capacity usage, not provisioned storage.

Customer commitments can be as short as 12 months, with longer 24- or 36-month terms available and minimum capacity is 50TiB. Four service levels are offered.

Pure1 management tools allow management across datacentre and cloud from a single dashboard. This includes monitoring and provisioning, as well as the ability to manage capacity and performance upgrades from Pure.

Killexams : iPhone 14 Pro availability improves despite assembler riots

A Foxconn facility

AppleInsider may earn an affiliate commission on purchases made through links on our site.

Lead times for the iPhone 14 Pro orders have moderated slightly outside of China, but the ongoing COVID-related labor problems at the main iPhone factory are still a problem.

Week 12 of the JP Morgan Apple Product Availability Tracker has seen mixed results across all main iPhone 14 models. On a global basis, the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus have seen lead times grow from 2 days in week 11 to 3 days, the Pro and Pro Max saw times reduce to averages of 35 days each from 41 days apiece a week prior.

The reduced lead times for the Pro models are seen as "encouraging trends in relation to supply improvement," according to JP Morgan. In most regions outside of China, the lead times have gone down.

However, the elevated lead times in China are said to show that challenges at to the Zhengzhou facility in China, Apple's main producer of Pro models, are still ongoing. The continued issues at the factory could mean it will take time for "supply and demand to reach balance relative to years past," the tracker seen by AppleInsider reads.

Even so, the overall moderation of lead times for the models "appear indicative of cycling past the worst in relation to supply challenges," analysts behind the tracker write. The continued situation and delays in returning to a normal level of production at the factory "could limit the pace with which the supply-demand equilibrium can be reached in the coming months," though supply does has somewhat rebounded already.

Against the iPhone 13 generation, the base iPhone 14 model lead times are relatively in line with the previous versions, while the Pro models are now comparatively longer.

In the United States, the iPhone 14 and Plus lead times are relatively stable at 4 days versus 3 days one week prior, while Pro models moderated to 33 days from 40 days. While the iPhone 14 and Plus are available for same-day pickup, the Pro models are largely unavailable.

For China, the base models stay at 2 days, in line with the iPhone 13 comparatives. The Pro and Pro Max times are still at 43 days, the longest lead times across all regions being tracked.

In Europe, German and British lead times for the iPhone 14 and Plus hit 4 days, up from 1 day a week ago, which is said to be in line with the iPhone 13. The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max are at 32 days in Germany, down from 39 days one week earlier, and 33 days in the UK, down from 40 days.

The second-generation AirPods Pro have seen a marginal increase in lead times, from 2 days to 3 days.

Killexams : WAJAX ANNOUNCES 2022 THIRD QUARTER RESULTS

TSX Symbol:  WJX

TORONTO, Nov. 7, 2022 /CNW/ -  Wajax Corporation ("Wajax" or the "Corporation") today announced its 2022 third quarter results.

In commenting on the Corporation's performance, Iggy Domagalski, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated "Wajax delivered excellent operational results in the third quarter, with revenues of $470.8 million and adjusted EBITDA of $39.1 million. The business continues to perform strongly, with robust heavy equipment sales, particularly in the construction and forestry category. This is due in part to our expanded direct distribution relationship with Hitachi, which took effect on March 1, 2022. To date, we have been exceptionally pleased with the growth enabled by this enhanced relationship with Hitachi, and continue to see even further potential, expecting that the relationship will continue to expand and drive greater equipment sales and product support revenue."(1)

Mr. Domagalski continued, "Industrial parts and ERS sales have also shown robust year-over-year growth, due in part to elevated commodity prices and capital spending by customers across all regions. During the first half of 2022, improved cash flow from operations allowed us to make early repayment of our acquisition credit facility and fund two tuck-in acquisitions, further expanding our ERS footprint and service offerings."

Mr. Domagalski added, "During the quarter, we continued to see overall strength in our backlog, which increased to a record $558.8 million. This momentum is being driven by sound fundamentals in many of our key markets, supported by higher commodity prices and capital spending as customers work to source equipment and services that were constrained during the COVID-19 pandemic."(1)

As Wajax moves into the last quarter of 2022, it continues to see sound fundamentals in many of its key markets, bolstered by elevated commodity prices and capital spending. This positive view of the market remains counterbalanced primarily by rising interest rates, inflation, labour availability and ongoing supply chain issues. Wajax continues to manage these challenges through frequent dialogue with key suppliers and customers.

The Corporation's robust balance sheet and record quarter end backlog of $558.8 million, approximately two-thirds of which is expected to be converted in 2022, continue to show momentum in the business.(1) To maintain this momentum and increase shareholder value, Wajax plans to maintain focus on the following priorities:

  • Developing its "people first" culture; by investing in its team and their safety and delivering exceptional customer experiences.

  • Setting the stage for growth - organically through strategic investments, continuing to build its acquisition pipeline with a focus on ERS and industrial parts businesses, continuing to support its enhanced relationship with Hitachi, and prudently managing its balance sheet.

  • Deploying its ERP and remote diagnostic systems and continuing to build sustainability into its business.

Looking ahead, Wajax believes its strong balance sheet, ability to generate cash flow, abundant organic growth opportunities and acquisition program will allow its business to grow meaningfully over the long term.

The Corporation also announced the declaration of a dividend of $0.25 per share for the fourth quarter of 2022 payable on January 4, 2023 to shareholders of record on December 15, 2022.

Third Quarter Highlights

  • Revenue in the third quarter of 2022 increased $69.5 million, or 17.3%, to $470.8 million, from $401.3 million in the third quarter of 2021. Regionally:

  • Gross profit margin of 20.3% in the third quarter of 2022 decreased 90 basis points ("bps") compared to gross profit margin of 21.2% in the same period of 2021. The decrease was driven by a less favourable sales mix and lower product support and ERS margins, partially offset by higher industrial parts, equipment and equipment rental margins.

  • Selling and administrative expenses as a percentage of revenue decreased to 14.7% in the third quarter of 2022 from 15.1% in the third quarter of 2021. Selling and administrative expenses in the third quarter of 2022 increased $8.7 million compared to the third quarter of 2021 due mainly to higher personnel costs as the volume of business increased over the prior year.

  • EBIT increased $2.0 million, or 8.0%, to $26.7 million in the third quarter of 2022 versus $24.7 million in the same period of 2021. The year-over-year increase in EBIT was due primarily to higher sales volumes, offset partially by increased selling and administrative expenses.

  • The Corporation generated net earnings of $18.0 million, or $0.84 per share, in the third quarter of 2022 versus $14.7 million, or $0.68 per share, in the same period of 2021. The Corporation generated adjusted net earnings of $16.7 million, or $0.78 per share, in the third quarter of 2022 versus $15.5 million, or $0.72 per share, in the same period of 2021. Adjusted net earnings in the third quarter of 2022 excludes non-cash gains on mark to market of derivative instruments of $1.3 million after-tax, or $0.06 per share (2021 – losses of $0.9 million after-tax, or $0.04 per share). Adjusted net earnings in the same period of 2021 also excludes a gain recorded on the sale of properties of $0.1 million after-tax, or less than $0.01 per share.(1)

  • Adjusted EBITDA margin decreased to 8.3% in the third quarter of 2022 from 10.1% in the third quarter of 2021.(1)

  • The Corporation's record backlog at September 30, 2022 of $558.8 million increased $23.9 million, or 4.5%, compared to June 30, 2022 backlog of $534.8 million due to more mining, material handling and ERS orders. Compared to September 30, 2021, backlog increased $187.2 million, or 50.4%, due to increased volume of orders in most categories, most notably construction and forestry, industrial parts and ERS.(1)

  • Working capital of $342.7 million at September 30, 2022 increased $34.8 million from June 30, 2022 due to higher trade and other receivables and higher inventory, offset partially by increased accounts payable and accrued liabilities. Trailing four-quarter average working capital as a percentage of the trailing 12-month sales was 17.6%, a decrease of 50 bps from June 30, 2022, due to the higher trailing 12-month sales.(1)

  • Cash flows used in operating activities amounted to $3.4 million in the third quarter of 2022, compared to cash flows generated from operating activities of $40.2 million in the same quarter of the previous year. The decrease in cash generated from operating activities of $43.6 million was mainly attributable to a decrease in cash generated from changes in non-cash operating working capital of $44.0 million, which was driven largely by an increase in inventory of $32.7 million in the third quarter of 2022 as compared to a decrease in inventory of $5.6 million in the same quarter of the previous year.

  • The Corporation's leverage ratio increased to 1.28 times at September 30, 2022, compared to 1.10 times at June 30, 2022. The increase in the leverage ratio was due primarily to the higher debt level in the current period. The Corporation's senior secured leverage ratio was 0.81 times at September 30, 2022, compared to 0.65 times at June 30, 2022.(1)

  • Effective October 6, 2022, the Corporation amended its bank credit facility to extend the maturity date from October 1, 2026 to October 1, 2027. The bank credit facility has a $400.0 million credit limit as at September 30, 2022, composed of a $50.0 million non-revolving term facility and a $350.0 million revolving term facility.

Non-GAAP and Other Financial Measures

The press release contains certain non-GAAP and other financial measures that do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP. Therefore, these financial measures may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. Investors are cautioned that these measures should not be construed as an alternative to net earnings or to cash flow from operating, investing, and financing activities determined in accordance with GAAP as indicators of the Corporation's performance. The Corporation's management believes that:

(i)

these measures are commonly reported and widely used by investors and management;

(ii)

the non-GAAP measures are commonly used as an indicator of a company's cash operating performance, profitability and ability to raise and service debt;

(iii)

"Adjusted net earnings" and "Adjusted basic and diluted earnings per share" provide indications of the results by the Corporation's principal business activities prior to recognizing non-recurring costs (recoveries) and non-cash losses (gains) on mark to market of derivative instruments. These adjustments to net earnings and basic and diluted earnings per share allow the Corporation's management to consistently compare periods by removing infrequent charges incurred outside of the Corporation's principal business activities and the impact of unrealized losses (gains) resulting from fluctuations in interest rates and the Corporation's share price;

(iv)

"Adjusted EBITDA" provides an indication of the results by the Corporation's principal business activities prior to recognizing non-recurring costs (recoveries) and non-cash losses (gains) on mark to market of derivative instruments. These adjustments to net earnings allow the Corporation's management to consistently compare periods by removing infrequent charges incurred outside of the Corporation's principal business activities, the impact of unrealized losses (gains) resulting from fluctuations in interest rates and the Corporation's share price, the impact of fluctuations in finance costs related to the Corporation's capital structure, the impact of tax rates, and the impact of depreciation and amortization of long-term assets; and

(v)

"Pro-forma adjusted EBITDA" provides the same utility as Adjusted EBITDA described above, however pursuant to the terms of the bank credit facility, is adjusted for the EBITDA of business acquisitions made during the period as if they were made at the beginning of the trailing 12-month period, and for the deduction of payments of lease liabilities. Pro-forma adjusted EBITDA is used in calculating the Leverage ratio and Senior secured leverage ratio.

Non-GAAP financial measures are identified and defined below:

Funded net debt

Funded net debt includes bank indebtedness, debentures and total long-term debt, net of cash. Funded net debt is relevant in calculating the Corporation's funded net debt to total capital, which is a non-GAAP ratio commonly used as an indicator of a company's ability to raise and service debt.

Debt

Debt is funded net debt plus letters of credit. Debt is relevant in calculating the Corporation's leverage ratio, which is a non-GAAP ratio commonly used as an indicator of a company's ability to raise and service debt.

Total capital

Total capital is shareholders' equity plus funded net debt.

EBITDA

Net earnings (loss) before finance costs, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization.

Adjusted net earnings (loss)

Net earnings (loss) before (gain) loss recorded on the sale of properties, non-cash losses (gains) on mark to market of derivative instruments and Tundra transaction costs.

Adjusted basic and diluted earnings (loss) per share

Basic and diluted earnings (loss) per share before (gain) loss recorded on the sale of properties, non-cash losses (gains) on mark to market of derivative instruments and Tundra transaction costs.

Adjusted EBITDA

EBITDA before (gain) loss recorded on the sale of properties, non-cash losses (gains) on mark to market of derivative instruments and Tundra transaction costs.

Pro-forma adjusted EBITDA

Defined as adjusted EBITDA adjusted for the EBITDA of business acquisitions made during the period as if they were made at the beginning of the trailing 12-month period pursuant to the terms of the bank credit facility and the deduction of payments of lease liabilities.

Working capital

Defined as current assets less current liabilities, as presented in the condensed consolidated interim statements of financial position.

 

Other working capital amounts

Defined as working capital less trade and other receivables and inventory plus accounts payable and accrued liabilities, as presented in the condensed consolidated interim statements of financial position.

Backlog

Backlog is a management measure which includes the total sales value of customer purchase commitments for future delivery or commissioning of equipment, parts and related services, including ERS projects. This differs from the remaining performance obligations as defined by IFRS 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customers. There is no directly comparable GAAP financial measure for Backlog.

Non-GAAP ratios are identified and defined below:

EBITDA margin

Defined as EBITDA divided by revenue, as presented in the condensed consolidated interim statements of earnings.

 

Adjusted EBITDA margin

Defined as adjusted EBITDA divided by revenue, as presented in the condensed consolidated interim statements of earnings.

 

Leverage ratio

The leverage ratio is defined as debt at the end of a particular quarter divided by trailing 12-month pro-forma adjusted EBITDA. The Corporation's objective is to maintain this ratio between 1.5 times and 2.0 times.

Senior secured leverage ratio

The senior secured leverage ratio is defined as debt excluding debentures at the end of a particular quarter divided by trailing 12-month pro-forma adjusted EBITDA.

Funded net debt to total capital

Defined as funded net debt divided by total capital. Total capital is the funded net debt plus shareholder's equity.

Supplementary financial measures are identified and defined below:

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Information

This news release contains certain forward-looking statements and forward-looking information, as defined in applicable securities laws (collectively, "forward-looking statements"). These forward-looking statements relate to future events or the Corporation's future performance. All statements other than statements of historical fact are forward-looking statements. Often, but not always, forward looking statements can be identified by the use of words such as "plans", "anticipates", "intends", "predicts", "expects", "is expected", "scheduled", "believes", "estimates", "projects" or "forecasts", or variations of, or the negatives of, such words and phrases or state that certain actions, events or results "may", "could", "would", "should", "might" or "will" be taken, occur or be achieved. Forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors beyond the Corporation's ability to predict or control which may cause genuine results, performance and achievements to differ materially from those anticipated or implied in such forward-looking statements. To the extent any forward-looking information in this news release constitutes future-oriented financial information or financial outlook within the meaning of applicable securities law, such information is being provided to demonstrate the potential of the Corporation and readers are cautioned that this information may not be appropriate for any other purpose. There can be no assurance that any forward-looking statement will materialize. Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on forward looking statements. The forward-looking statements in this news release are made as of the date of this news release, reflect management's current beliefs and are based on information currently available to management. Although management believes that the expectations represented in such forward-looking statements are reasonable, there is no assurance that such expectations will prove to be correct. Specifically, this news release includes forward looking statements regarding, among other things: our view that our enhanced relationship with Hitachi has even further growth potential, and our expectation that the relationship will continue to expand and drive greater equipment sales and product support revenues; our view that, as we move into the last quarter of 2022, we are continuing to see sound fundamentals in many of our key markets, bolstered by elevated commodity prices and capital spending, and that this positive view of the market is counterbalanced primarily by rising interest rates, inflation, labour availability and ongoing supply chain issues; our plans to continue to manage these challenges through frequent dialogue with key suppliers and customers; our belief that our robust balance sheet and record quarter-end backlog continue to show momentum in our business, together with our expectation that approximately two-thirds of such quarter-end backlog will be converted in 2022; our plans to maintain such momentum and increase shareholder value by maintaining our focus on the following priorities: (1) developing our "people first" culture by investing in our team and their safety, and delivering exceptional customer experiences, (2) setting the stage for growth – organically through strategic investments, continuing to build our acquisition pipeline with a focus on ERS and industrial parts businesses, continuing to support our enhanced relationship with Hitachi, and prudently managing our balance sheet, and (3) deploying our ERP and remote diagnostic systems, and continuing to build sustainability into our business; our belief that our strong balance sheet, ability to generate cash flow, abundant growth opportunities and acquisition program will allow our business to grow meaningfully over the long-term; our objective of managing our working capital and normal course capital investment programs within a leverage range of 1.5 – 2.0 times; and our goal of being Canada's leading industrial products and services provider, distinguished by our sales force excellence, the breadth and efficiency of our repair and maintenance operations, and our ability to work closely with existing and new vendor partners to constantly expand our product offering to customers, together with our belief that achieving excellence in these three areas will position us to create value for our customers, employees, vendors and shareholders. These statements are based on a number of assumptions which may prove to be incorrect, including, but not limited to, assumptions regarding: general business and economic conditions; the supply and demand for, and the level and volatility of prices for, oil, natural gas and other commodities; financial market conditions, including interest rates; our ability to successfully manage our business through the COVID-19 pandemic and actions taken by governments, public authorities, suppliers and customers in response to the novel coronavirus and its variants; the ability of Hitachi and Wajax to develop and execute successful sales, marketing and other plans related to the expanded direct distribution relationship which took effect on March 1, 2022; our ability to execute our One Wajax strategy, including our ability to execute on our organic growth priorities, complete and effectively integrate acquisitions, and successfully implement new information technology platforms, systems and software, such as our ERP system; the future financial performance of the Corporation; our costs; market competition; our ability to attract and retain skilled staff; our ability to procure quality products and inventory; and our ongoing relations with suppliers, employees and customers. The foregoing list of assumptions is not exhaustive. Factors that may cause genuine results to vary materially include, but are not limited to: a continued or prolonged deterioration in general business and economic conditions, including as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic or armed conflicts between nations; supply chain disruptions and shortages related to or arising from the impacts of COVID-19 or armed conflicts between nations; fluctuations in financial market conditions, including interest rates; the continuing impact of the COVID-19 virus and its variants, including the duration and severity of travel, business and other restrictions imposed by governments and public authorities in response to COVID-19 and its variants; actions taken by our suppliers and customers in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic, including slowing, reducing or halting operations; the inability of Hitachi and Wajax to develop and execute successful sales, marketing and other plans related to their expanded direct distribution relationship; volatility in the supply and demand for, and the level of prices for, oil, natural gas and other commodities; a continued or prolonged decrease in the price of oil or natural gas; the level of demand for, and prices of, the products and services we offer; levels of customer confidence and spending; market acceptance of the products we offer; termination of distribution or original equipment manufacturer agreements; unanticipated operational difficulties (including failure of plant, equipment or processes to operate in accordance with specifications or expectations, cost escalation, our inability to reduce costs in response to slow-downs in market activity, unavailability of quality products or inventory, supply disruptions (including those caused by or related to the COVID-19 pandemic), job action and unanticipated events related to health, safety and environmental matters); our ability to attract and retain skilled staff and our ability to maintain our relationships with suppliers, employees and customers. The foregoing list of factors is not exhaustive. Further information concerning the risks and uncertainties associated with these forward-looking statements and the Corporation's business may be found in our Annual Information Form for the year ended December 31, 2021 (the "AIF"), in our annual MD&A for financial risks, and in our most accurate quarterly MD&A, all of which have been filed on SEDAR.

More Black Friday Deals

AirPods Pro (2021)

Verizon has the best price we've ever tracked on Apple's first-generation AirPods Pro, available for $159.99, down from their original price of $249.00. These AirPods Pro are the same model that launched in 2019, but they come with the MagSafe Charging Case.

AirPods Pro 2 (2022)

One of the highlights of this year's Black Friday sales is the brand new second-generation AirPods Pro at $199.99 at Amazon, down from $249.00. Woot had the same model for $2 cheaper in mid-November, but that sale quickly sold out and Amazon's has been holding steady for days. It's practically an all-time low price on the latest 2022 AirPods Pro.


AirPods 2 (2019)

The year's best price has hit Apple's 2019 AirPods 2, and they're available for just $79.00 on Amazon right now, down from $129.00. As an entry-level option, this model will be perfectly usable for most users who don't care about the advanced noise-canceling features of the higher-end AirPods.

AirPods Max (2020)

AirPods Max deals on Amazon include $99 discounts across every color, marking the over-ear headphones down to $449.00. Not an all-time low price, this is a decent second-best option if you absolutely need the AirPods Max this week, but we expect steeper discounts to re-emerge before the holidays are over.

We're keeping track of all of the season's best Apple-related deals in our Black Friday roundup, so be sure to check back throughout the month for an updated list of all the most notable discounts you'll find for Black Friday 2022.

Killexams : Chase Young noncommittal about his availability for Sunday

The Commanders activated edge rusher Chase Young to the 53-player roster Monday. That doesn’t mean Young will play Sunday.

Young was noncommittal when asked whether he would play against the Falcons.

Taking it day by day,” Young told reporters, via Ethan Cadeaux of NBC Sports Washington.

Young’s 21-day practice window was closing, forcing Washington to activate him to the active roster by today. He was limited in Wednesday’s practice.

“Chase looked good. He did. He had a good day,” Rivera said. “He showed us some things that we’ve been looking for. We’ll continue to monitor his progress and we’ll see how he does on Friday.”

Young, 23, has not played in more than a year after tearing an ACL against the Buccaneers last season. So, when Young does return, Washington will have him on a pitch count.

He likely plays 12-16 snaps initially, Rivera said, before increasing to 30-35 by the end of the season.

“Sixteen plays, one of those plays can be the play of the game,” Young said. “You just never know. However many snaps I have when I come back, I’ll be prepared.”

Killexams : Apple gives an update on iPhone 14 Pro, 14 Pro Max availability

Apple has issued a statement regarding the availability of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.

It reads: COVID-19 restrictions have temporarily impacted the primary iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max assembly facility located in Zhengzhou, China. The facility is currently operating at significantly reduced capacity. As we have done throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we are prioritizing the health and safety of the workers in our supply chain. 

We continue to see strong demand for iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models. However, we now expect lower iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max shipments than we previously anticipated and customers will experience longer wait times to receive their new products.

We are working closely with our provider to return to normal production levels while ensuring the health and safety of every worker.
