American Energy - Utica, LLC Announces An Additional $1.25 Billion In Capital Raised, Increasing Total Capital Raised Since October 2013 To $2.9 Billion

OKLAHOMA CITY, Feb. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- American Energy – Utica, LLC (AEU), an affiliate of American Energy Partners, LP (AEP-LP), announced today that it has priced $750 million of seven-year 3.5% convertible subordinated notes.  The offering was upsized from an initial amount of $500 million.  The notes are convertible upon the first qualified, registered public offering of AEU into shares of the same class of common stock that are sold in that offering.  Upon conversion, holders of the notes will receive a number of shares equal to the greater of (x) $750 million divided by a conversion price equal to an agreed discount to the public offering price and (y) 15% of the equity value of AEU at the time of the public offering, in each case subject to certain adjustments.

Concurrently with the closing of the offering of the notes, AEU will enter into an amendment of its senior secured credit facility to provide for $500 million of incremental borrowings under its term loan facility, which increases AEU's total borrowing capacity to $950 million.  Subject to satisfaction of customary closing conditions, AEU expects the offering of the notes and increase in the term loan capacity to close on February 27, 2014.

AEU intends to use the net proceeds from the offering and the incremental term loan borrowings to facilitate the funding of its pending leasehold acquisitions and planned capital expenditures for its drilling and development program in the southern Utica Shale.

AEU has not registered the notes and any common stock issuable upon the conversion of the notes under the Securities Act of 1933 (the "Securities Act"), as amended, any other federal securities laws or the laws of any state. The initial purchasers in the offering are offering the notes only to persons reasonably believed to be qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act. The notes and the common shares into which the notes will convert have not been registered under the Securities Act or the securities laws of any other jurisdiction, and may not be offered or sold in the United States without registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state laws. For the life of the notes, the notes can only be transferred to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act.

This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
So, you bought into the current machine learning craze and went on to collect millions/billions of records from this promising new data source. Now, what do you do with them? Too often, the abundance of data quickly turns into an abundance of problems. How do you extract that "magic essence" from your data without falling into the common pitfalls? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Natalia Ponomareva, Software Engineer at Google, provided tips on how to be successful in large scale machine learning...

In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.
Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...

The many IoT deployments around the world are busy integrating smart devices and sensors into their enterprise IT infrastructures. Yet all of this technology – and there are an amazing number of choices – is of no use without the software to gather, communicate, and analyze the new data flows. Without software, there is no IT.

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...
We’ve been doing it for years, decades for some. How many websites have you created accounts on? Your bank, your credit card companies, social media sites, hotels and travel sites, online shopping sites, and that’s just the start. We do it often without even thinking about it, quickly entering our personal information, our data, in a plethora of systems. Sometimes we’re not even aware of the information we are providing. It could be very personal information (think of the security questions you ...
