NEW YORK, March 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Genpact Limited (NYSE: G), a global leader in transforming and running business processes and operations, today announced that it intends to purchase up to $300 million of its common shares through a modified "Dutch auction" tender offer that it expects to commence on March 6, 2014.
Under the terms of the tender offer, Genpact's shareholders will have the opportunity to tender some or all of their shares at a price per share of not less than $16.50 per share and not greater than $18.00 per share. Based on the number of shares tendered and the prices specified by the tendering shareholders, Genpact will determine the lowest per share price within the range that will enable it to purchase $300 million in shares, or such lower amount depending on the number of shares that are properly tendered and not properly withdrawn. All shares accepted in the tender offer will be purchased at the same price, regardless of whether a shareholder tendered such shares at a lower price within the range. At the minimum price of $16.50 per share, Genpact would repurchase a maximum of 18,181,818 shares, or approximately 8% of Genpact's outstanding common shares as of February 28, 2014.
The tender offer will expire at 12:00 midnight, New York City time, at the end of the day on April 2, 2014, unless extended or withdrawn. Tenders of shares must be made prior to the expiration of the tender offer and may be withdrawn at any time prior to that time.
Genpact intends to finance the share repurchase from available cash and cash equivalents and borrowings under its existing credit facility.
Shareholders who have questions may call Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC, the dealer manager for the tender offer, at (855) 483-0952. The information agent for the tender offer is Georgeson Inc. and the depositary is Computershare Trust Company, N.A. The offer to purchase, the related letter of transmittal, and the other tender offer materials will be mailed to Genpact's shareholders shortly after commencement of the tender offer. Shareholders, banks and brokers who have questions or would like additional copies of the tender offer documents may call the information agent at (877) 278-4774.
Genpact's directors and executive officers have advised Genpact that they do not intend to tender any of their shares in the tender offer. In addition, affiliates of Bain Capital Investors, LLC (which currently own approximately 25% of Genpact's outstanding shares) have advised Genpact that they do not intend to participate in the tender offer.
Neither Genpact nor any of its board of directors, executive officers, the dealer manager, the information agent or the depositary is making any recommendation to shareholders as to whether to tender or refrain from tendering their shares in the proposed tender offer or as to the price or prices at which shareholders may choose to tender their shares, and has not authorized any person to do so. Shareholders must decide how many shares they will tender, if any, and the price or prices within the stated range at which they will tender their shares. In doing so, shareholders should carefully evaluate all of the information in the offer to purchase, the related letter of transmittal, and the other tender offer materials, when available, before making any decision with respect to the tender offer, and should consult their own financial, legal and tax advisors and brokers.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.

Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...
