WICHITA, Kan., March 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Spirit AeroSystems Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: SPR) announced today the interim results of the previously announced tender offer and consent solicitation by its wholly-owned subsidiary Spirit AeroSystems, Inc. (the "Company"), for its 7 ½% Senior Notes due 2017 (the "Notes"). As of 5:00 pm, New York City time, on March 17, 2014 (the "Consent Date"), $227,160,000 aggregate principal amount of the Notes had been tendered and the related consents delivered.
Pursuant to the terms of the tender offer, the Company will accept for payment all Notes validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) prior to the Consent Date, and holders who tendered such Notes will receive $1,041.25 per $1,000 in principal amount of Notes validly tendered, plus accrued and unpaid interest up to, but not including, the payment date for such Notes, which is expected to be tomorrow, March 18, 2014.
The tender offer will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on March 31, 2014, unless extended (such date and time, as the same may be extended, the "Expiration Date"). Holders who validly tender their Notes after the Consent Date and before the Expiration Date will be eligible to receive $1,011.25 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes, plus accrued and unpaid interest up to, but not including, the final settlement date, which is expected to be the next business day after the Expiration Date.
Based on the consents received, the Company and the trustee under the indenture governing the Notes will enter into a supplemental indenture that would amend the indenture governing the Notes to eliminate most of the covenants and certain default provisions applicable to the Notes. The supplemental indenture, which will become operative once Notes tendered prior to the consent expiration have been accepted for payment, will be binding on the holders of Notes not purchased in the tender offer.
Tendered Notes may no longer be withdrawn and the related consents may no longer be revoked. Any extension, delay, termination or amendment of the tender offer will be followed as promptly as practicable by a public announcement thereof.
The complete terms and conditions of the tender offer and consent solicitation are described in the Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement, dated March 4, 2014, copies of which may be obtained from Global Bondholder Services Corporation, the depositary and information agent for the tender offer and consent solicitation, at (866) 470-4200 (US toll-free) or, for banks and brokers, (212) 430-3774.

In the 21st century, security on the Internet has become one of the most important issues. We hear more and more about cyber-attacks on the websites of large corporations, banks and even small businesses. When online we’re concerned not only for our own safety but also our privacy. We have to know that hackers usually start their preparation by investigating the private information of admins – the habits, interests, visited websites and so on. On the other hand, our own security is in danger bec...

DevOps is speeding towards the IT world like a freight train and the hype around it is deafening. There is no reason to be afraid of this change as it is the natural reaction to the agile movement that revolutionized development just a few years ago. By definition, DevOps is the natural alignment of IT performance to business profitability. The relevance of this has yet to be quantified but it has been suggested that the route to the CEO’s chair will come from the IT leaders that successfully ma...

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time. In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, wil...

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. In this power panel at @...

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components.

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...

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?
