SAN DIEGO, March 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Leap Wireless International, Inc. (NASDAQ: LEAP) today provided notice of a Make-Whole Fundamental Change to holders of its 4.50 percent Convertible Senior Notes due 2014 (the "Notes"). The Make-Whole Fundamental Change resulted from the merger of a wholly owned subsidiary of AT&T Inc., a Delaware corporation, into Leap, pursuant to which Leap became a wholly owned subsidiary of AT&T (the "Merger"). The Merger was completed pursuant to the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of July 12, 2013 (the "Merger Agreement"), by and among Leap, AT&T, Laser, Inc., a Delaware corporation, and Mariner Acquisition Sub Inc., a subsidiary of AT&T. A copy of the Merger Agreement was filed as an exhibit to Leap's Current Report on Form 8-K, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on July 15, 2013. Copies of this filing is available on the SEC's website at www.sec.gov.
The Merger, which was consummated today (the "Effective Date"), constitutes a Make-Whole Fundamental Change under the Indenture, dated as of June 25, 2008 (the "Base Indenture"), governing the Notes, as supplemented by the Supplemental Indenture, dated as of March 13, 2014, among Leap, AT&T and Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., as Trustee (the "Supplemental Indenture" and, together with the Base Indenture, the "Indenture"). A copy of the Base Indenture was included as an exhibit to Leap's Current Report on Form 8-K, filed with the SEC on June 30, 2008.
Pursuant to Section 11.01 of the Indenture, each Noteholder has the right, subject to certain conditions, at such Noteholder's option, to require Leap to repurchase all of such Noteholder's Notes, or any portion thereof that is a multiple of $1,000 principal amount, on March 28, 2014 (the "Fundamental Change Purchase Date"), at a price equal to 100% of the principal amount thereof, plus any accrued and unpaid interest thereon to, but excluding, the Fundamental Change Purchase Date.
As an alternative to requiring Leap to repurchase a Noteholder's Notes, pursuant to Section 12.11 of the Indenture, each Noteholder will have the right, subject to certain conditions, at such Noteholder's option, to convert such Noteholder's Notes at any time during the period beginning at the effective time of the Merger (which occurred today) until the third scheduled trading day immediately preceding the Maturity Date, as defined in the Indenture (such period, the "Conversion Period"). Notes that are surrendered for conversion during the Conversion Period will be converted into the right to receive, for each $1,000 principal amount of Notes, the consideration such Noteholder would have been entitled to receive under the Merger, by reference to that number of shares of Common Stock (as defined in the Indenture) equal to the Conversion Rate (as defined in the Indenture), calculated as provided in Section 12.01 of the Indenture with references to Common Stock replaced by references to the Reference Property (as defined in the Indenture), that such Noteholder would have owned or been entitled to receive had such Noteholder converted its Notes immediately prior to the Merger. Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, Leap's shareholders are entitled to receive, for each share of Common Stock, consideration consisting of $15.00 and one contingent value right, which shall constitute the Reference Property. No notice of conversion with respect to any Notes may be provided by a Noteholder if such Noteholder has also provided a Fundamental Change Repurchase Notice (as defined in the Indenture) that has not been validly withdrawn.

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?

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
