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:

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it?

As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
