Newmont Mining Corporation Analyst Notes
On April 1, 2014, Newmont Mining Corporation (Newmont) announced the closing of its previously announced five-year, amortizing term loan of $575 million which will be used to repay the debt maturing in July 2014. The Company also renewed its $3.0 billion corporate revolving credit facility, extending the maturity date two years to March 31, 2019. Commenting on the development, Laurie Brlas, Executive Vice President and CFO, said, "The term loan allows us to repay the 2014 maturities and provides the flexibility to reduce debt over the coming years. Extending the maturity of our revolving credit facility ultimately enhances our corporate liquidity profile." Both bank facilities are unsecured and include a single financial covenant requiring a net-debt-to-capitalization ratio below 0.63. As of December 31, 2013, the Company's leverage ratio, as defined, was 0.29. The full analyst notes on Newmont Mining Corporation are available to download free of charge at:

Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands. Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction. ...

Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats. In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.
