    Cool Sentence with "so" not quite clear for me

    Taking into account the following sentence:

    "We have an international network of producers, coproducers, financiers and experts so we can access information as it becomes available."

    What is the exact meaning?
    Does it mean that "Because of we have an international network of producers, coproducers, financiers and experts, we can have some information from them when available.?

    Thanks a lot

    The meaning is "Since we have an international network of producers, coproducers, financiers and experts, we can access information as it becomes available".

    Note that "because of" can only be followed by a noun.
    i.e.:
    We were late because of the traffic

    You may use "because" without "of" but there is a little difference in meaning between "since" and "because".

    Right. Thanks, but can we infer that this information is coming from them?

    Cheers

    Now I get the point. I'm sorry I misunderstood your question.
    Yes, I think you're right.
    The meaning is that they can get information very quickly because of their "international network of producers, coproducers, financiers and experts".
