(ISIN/CUSIP US05965XAP42/05965XAP4 (144A) and USP15069AL46/P15069AL4 (Reg S))

SANTIAGO, Chile, Feb. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Banco Santander-Chile ("Santander-Chile") today announced the settlement of its previously announced cash tender offer (the "Tender Offer") for any and all of the outstanding Ps.247,255,000,000 CLP-Denominated 6.50% Senior Notes due 2020 (the "Notes"). The Tender Offer which expired at 5.00 p.m., New York City Time, on February 19, 2014, was made upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase dated February 12, 2014, and this release should be read in conjunction with that document.

Ps.118,409,000,000 aggregate principal amount of the Notes were validly tendered in the Tender Offer, representing approximately 79.56% of the outstanding Notes.  Santander-Chile has accepted for purchase all of the Notes validly tendered and not withdrawn in respect of the Tender Offer.

Santander-Chile paid the consideration (Ps.500,000 per Ps.500,000 principal amount of Notes) plus accrued and unpaid interest to, but not including, February 21, 2014. Because the Depository Trust Company does not have the ability to deliver payments to its participants in Chilean pesos, such amount was paid in U.S. dollars, calculated by exchanging the Chilean peso amount into U.S. dollars at the Dolar Observado rate reported by the Central Bank of Chile (Banco Central de Chile) on the morning of February 21, 2014. The consideration (excluding accrued and unpaid interest) paid by Santander-Chile per Ps. 500,000 principal amount of Notes expressed in U.S. dollars based on such rate was $900.30.  The total amount paid by Santander-Chile for all of the Notes validly tendered and not withdrawn expressed in U.S. dollars was $218,943,282.79.

Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. and Santander Investment Securities Inc. were the Dealer Managers for the Tender Offer. D.F. King & Co. served as the Information and Tender Agent for the Tender Offer.

This press release is not an offer to purchase or a solicitation of an offer to purchase with respect to any Notes or any other securities. The Tender Offer was made solely pursuant to the terms of the Offer to Purchase. The Offer to Purchase did not constitute an offer to purchase in Chile or to any resident of Chile, except as permitted by applicable Chilean law.

THE TENDER OFFER WAS SUBJECT TO OFFER AND DISTRIBUTION RESTRICTIONS IN ANY JURISDICTION IN WHICH THE MAKING OR ACCEPTANCE OF THE TENDER OFFER WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN IN COMPLIANCE WITH THE LAWS OF SUCH JURISDICTIONS, INCLUDING APPLICABLE SECURITIES OR "BLUE SKY" LAWS.  THE DISTRIBUTION OF THIS ANNOUNCEMENT IN THOSE JURISDICTIONS IS RESTRICTED BY THE LAWS OF SUCH JURISDICTIONS.

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
"We focus on composable infrastructure. Composable infrastructure has been named by companies like Gartner as the evolution of the IT infrastructure where everything is now driven by software," explained Bruno Andrade, CEO and Founder of HTBase, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications? To answer this, first we have to look and explore the security models of the technologies that IoT is founded upon. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nevi Kaja, a Research Engineer at Ford Motor Company, discussed some of the security challenges of the IoT infrastructure and related how these aspects impact Smart Living. The material was delivered interac...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
Cloud applications are seeing a deluge of requests to support the exploding advanced analytics market. “Open analytics” is the emerging strategy to deliver that data through an open data access layer, in the cloud, to be directly consumed by external analytics tools and popular programming languages. An increasing number of data engineers and data scientists use a variety of platforms and advanced analytics languages such as SAS, R, Python and Java, as well as frameworks such as Hadoop and Spark...
In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Doug Vanderweide, an instructor at Linux Academy, discussed why major players like AWS, Microsoft Azure, IBM Bluemix, and Google Cloud Platform are all trying to sidestep VMs and containers wit...
Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might...
No hype cycles or predictions of zillions of things here. IoT is big. You get it. You know your business and have great ideas for a business transformation strategy. What comes next? Time to make it happen. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jay Mason, Associate Partner at M&S Consulting, presented a step-by-step plan to develop your technology implementation strategy. He discussed the evaluation of communication standards and IoT messaging protocols, data analytics considerations, edge-to-cloud tec...
New competitors, disruptive technologies, and growing expectations are pushing every business to both adopt and deliver new digital services. This ‘Digital Transformation’ demands rapid delivery and continuous iteration of new competitive services via multiple channels, which in turn demands new service delivery techniques – including DevOps. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit 20th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Co-Chair Andi Mann, panelists examined how DevOps helps to meet the de...
When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
"When we talk about cloud without compromise what we're talking about is that when people think about 'I need the flexibility of the cloud' - it's the ability to create applications and run them in a cloud environment that's far more flexible,” explained Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
The taxi industry never saw Uber coming.
