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 Santander-Chile has accepted for purchase all of the Notes validly tendered and not withdrawn in respect of the Tender Offer.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 The total amount paid by Santander-Chile for all of the Notes validly tendered and not withdrawn expressed in U.S. dollars was $218,943,282.79.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.

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...

DevOps theory promotes a culture of continuous improvement built on collaboration, empowerment, systems thinking, and feedback loops. But how do you collaborate effectively across the traditional silos? How can you make decisions without system-wide visibility? How can you see the whole system when it is spread across teams and locations? How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?
