No alternative, conditional or contingent tenders will be accepted.
For purposes of the Offer, the Purchaser will be deemed to have accepted for payment, and thereby purchased, Shares validly tendered and not properly withdrawn prior to the Expiration Date or any subsequent expiration date when, as and if the Purchaser gives oral or written notice to the Depositary, as agent for the tendering stockholders, of the Purchaser's acceptance for payment of such Shares. Payment for Shares so accepted for payment will be made by the deposit of the purchase price therefor with the Depositary, which will act as agent for the tendering stockholders for the purpose of receiving such payment from the Purchaser and transmitting such payment to tendering stockholders.

In addition, the Purchaser may extend the Offer for any period required by any rule, regulation, interpretation or position of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") or its staff or as required by applicable law.

The minimum period during which an offer must remain open following material changes in the terms of the Offer or information concerning the Offer, other than a change in the Offer Price or a change in percentage of securities sought or a change in any dealer's solicitation, will depend upon the facts and circumstances, including the relative materiality of the term or information changes.

If the number of Shares tendered exceeds the number of Shares that Purchaser seeks to purchase pursuant to the Offer for those Shares, the Purchaser will take into account the number of Shares so tendered and take up and pay for as nearly as may be pro rata, disregarding fractions, according to the number of Shares tendered by each holder of Shares during the period during which the Offer remains open.
The receipt of cash in the Offer will be a taxable transaction for U.S. federal income tax purposes. Each holder of Shares should consult its tax advisor about the particular tax consequences to such holder of exchanging Shares in the Offer (including the application and effect of any state, local or foreign income and other tax laws).

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...
