NOVI, Mich., April 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Cooper-Standard Holdings Inc. (NYSE: CPS) ("Holdings"), the parent company of Cooper-Standard Automotive Inc. ("Cooper Standard"), a leading global supplier of systems and components for the automotive industry, announced today that the early tender deadline expired at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on April 3, 2014 (the "Early Tender Deadline") for the previously announced cash tender offers (the "Offers") for its outstanding Senior PIK Toggle Notes due 2018 (CUSIP No. 21687W AA3) ("HoldCo Notes") and for Cooper Standard's outstanding 8 ½% Senior Notes due 2018 (CUSIP No. 216762 AE4) ("OpCo Notes" and, together with HoldCo Notes, the "Notes").

In addition, Holdings and Cooper Standard each exercised the early purchase option and accepted for purchase all of the Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn at or prior to the Early Tender Deadline.  Holders who validly tendered their Notes and delivered their consents at or prior to the Early Tender Deadline and who did not validly withdraw their Notes prior to the withdrawal deadline will receive the total consideration equal to, (i) with respect to the HoldCo Notes, $1,024.50 per $1,000 principal amount of HoldCo Notes, and (ii) with respect to the OpCo Notes, $1,047.85 per $1,000 principal amount of OpCo Notes, which includes, in each case, an early tender payment of $5.00 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes. Such holders also will receive accrued and unpaid interest in respect of their purchased Notes from the last interest payment date to, but not including, April 4, 2014.

As of the Early Tender Deadline, $198,000,000 principal amount of the HoldCo Notes had been tendered and not validly withdrawn, representing approximately 99.00% of the aggregate outstanding principal amount of the HoldCo Notes, and $220,328,000 principal amount of the OpCo Notes had been tendered and not validly withdrawn, representing approximately 48.96% of the aggregate outstanding principal amount of the OpCo Notes.

Holdings received consents from holders representing a majority in aggregate principal amount of its outstanding Notes to adopt the proposed amendments to the indenture governing the HoldCo Notes pursuant to the consent solicitations to authorize such amendments (the "Consent Solicitations").  Holdings entered into a supplemental indenture effecting the proposed amendments with respect to the HoldCo Notes, which will become operative upon payment for the HoldCo Notes.

Holdings and Cooper Standard intend to call for redemption all remaining outstanding Notes pursuant to the discharge provisions of the applicable indenture.  By depositing with the trustee sufficient funds to pay principal, premium and accrued and unpaid interest on each series of Notes to, but not including, the respective redemption date, Holdings and Cooper Standard will be released from their respective obligations under the Notes and the related indentures.  The redemption of the remaining outstanding OpCo Notes and HoldCo Notes are expected to be completed on April 21, 2014 and May 5, 2014, respectively.

The Offers with respect to each series of Notes will expire at 12:00 midnight, New York City time, at the end of the day on April 18, 2014 (such time and date, as it may be extended with respect to either series of Notes, the "Expiration Time"), in each case, unless extended or earlier terminated by Holdings or Cooper Standard, as applicable. Holders who have not already tendered their Notes may do so at any time at or prior to the Expiration Time. If their Notes are accepted for purchase at or prior to the Expiration Time but after the Early Tender Deadline, such holders will only be eligible to receive the tender offer consideration equal to (i) in the case of the HoldCo Notes, $1,019.50 per $1,000 principal amount of HoldCo Notes, or (ii) in the case of the OpCo Notes, $1,042.85 per $1,000 principal amount of OpCo Notes, in each case, plus accrued and unpaid interest in cash in respect of their purchased Notes from the last interest payment date to, but not including, the applicable payment date.

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.

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.

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.

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...

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. 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?

How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
