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to the terms of the tender offer, the Company will accept for payment all Notes validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) prior to the Consent Date, and holders who tendered such Notes will receive $1,041.25 per $1,000 in principal amount of Notes validly tendered, plus accrued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Tendered Notes may no longer be withdrawn and the related consents may no longer be revoked.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.

There are 66 million network cameras capturing terabytes of data. How did factories in Japan improve physical security at the facilities and improve employee productivity? Edge Computing reduces possible kilobytes of data collected per second to only a few kilobytes of data transmitted to the public cloud every day. Data is aggregated and analyzed close to sensors so only intelligent results need to be transmitted to the cloud. Non-essential data is recycled to optimize storage.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die.
