PR Newswire

CALGARY, AB, Oct. 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ – TransAlta Renewables Inc. (“TransAlta Renewables” or the “Company”) (TSX: RNW) announced today that Southern Cross Energy (“SCE”) has amended and extended its current power purchase agreement (“PPA”) with BHP Billiton Nickel West Pty Ltd (“BHP”) in respect of SCE’s 245 MW of generation facilities in the Goldfields region of Western Australia. The amendment to the PPA replaces the previous contract that was scheduled to expire December 31, 2023. The Company owns an indirect economic interest in SCE.  

“This is an exciting announcement for our Australian business and continues a strong relationship with our customer BHP Nickel West,” said John Kousinioris, President and Chief Executive Officer of TransAlta Renewables. “Western Australia is an important market for us, where we have been operating for over 24 years.”

The PPA amendment extends the term to December 31, 2038 and provides SCE with the exclusive right to supply electrical energy to BHP’s mining operations located in the Goldfields region of Western Australia. The amendment preserves SCE’s current economic benefit to 2023, while also providing SCE a return of and on new capital investments which will be required to support BHP’s future power requirements and recently announced emission reduction targets. The PPA provides BHP with the ability to integrate renewable electricity generation, including solar and wind, with energy storage technologies, to meet its emissions reduction targets and deliver lower carbon, sustainable nickel to its customers. The amended PPA also provides BHP participation rights in new capital investments, subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions.    

The evaluation of renewable energy supply and carbon emissions reduction initiatives under the extended PPA with SCE are already under way, including an 18.5 MW solar photovoltaic farm at Nickel West’s Leinster and Mount Keith operations, supported by a battery energy storage system. A 17 MW waste heat steam turbine system at the Kalgoorlie Smelter is also being evaluated to provide low-emissions electricity from furnace heat recovery.

Shareholder Alert: Robbins LLP Announces It Is Investigating Super Micro Computer, Inc. (SMCI)

Shareholder Alert: Robbins LLP Announces It Is Investigating Super Micro Computer, Inc. (SMCI)

Shareholder rights law firm Robbins LLP is investigating whether the officers and directors of Super Micro Computer, Inc. (NasdaqGS: SMCI) breached their fiduciary duty to shareholders. Super Micro develops and manufactures high-performance server and storage solutions.

If you suffered a loss due to Super Micro Computer, Inc.’s misconduct, click here.

Super Micro Computer, Inc. (SMCI) Engaged in Improper Revenue Recognition Scheme

Super Micro had a precarious few years in which it missed SEC financial disclosure deadlines due to accounting irregularities and was subject to an investigation by the SEC for its accounting practices. The Company’s deteriorating operating performance led to a corresponding decline in its stock price. To combat this, certain Super Micro officers and directors engaged in a scheme to improperly recognize revenue when shipping unfinished product or when shipping to the Company’s warehouses. At the same time, the officers and directors falsely reassured investors regarding the accuracy of the Company’s financial reporting.

Then, in October 2017, Super Micro announced that it would be unable to timely file its fiscal year 2017 Form 10-K. Super Micro failed to file its required SEC filings for the next twenty months, resulting in the Company’s delisting from the Nasdaq and the termination of three members of its senior management. Finally, on May 17, 2019, Super Micro issued a restatement for a five-year period (2013-2017) admitting that the Company and its officers and managers were aware of, engaged in, and concealed sales and accounting misconduct motivated by an aggressive focus on increasing quarterly financial results. As a result, Super Micro’s earnings per share and revenues were artificially inflated by 32% and $40 million, respectively, and the Company incurred $109 million in investigatory costs. The Company is the subject of a federal securities class action and a cease-and-desist order issued by the SEC, which required Super Micro to pay $17.5 million due to its misconduct.
