Aveda Transportation and Energy Services Announces Opening of Oklahoma Branch and Closing of Increase to Senior Lending Facility

CALGARY, AB--(Marketwired - June 25, 2014) - Aveda Transportation and Energy Services Inc. ("Aveda" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: AVE), a leading provider of oilfield hauling services and equipment rentals to the energy industry, today announces that, it has closed the increase to its asset based lending facility at $125.0 million (as previously announced on June 12, 2014). The Company also plans to expand its operational footprint by opening a new branch in Oklahoma.

The Company also announces that it has reached an agreement with a new customer operating in the Mississippian Basin in Oklahoma and Kansas to provide a minimum threshold of monthly rig moves for a one year period in the region. The minimum rig moving thresholds in this region will give Aveda a solid starting position from which to grow. Accordingly, Aveda is planning on opening a new branch in Oklahoma in the third quarter of 2014. A portion of the assets to be acquired pursuant to the acquisition of Precision Drilling Corporation's US rig moving assets (as previously announced on June 16, 2014) are expected to be allocated to this new location. The Company estimates there are approximately 260 drilling rigs operating in the planned Oklahoma branch's service region which will include Northern Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas. This branch is anticipated to generate between $12.0 and $18.0 million in revenue in 2015.

"This is another customer led opportunity for Aveda to expand its operational footprint," said Kevin Roycraft, President and CEO of Aveda. "Our growth in Texas was directly as a result of customers demanding us to expand into new markets. The opening of our Oklahoma branch demonstrates the continued faith our customers have in our ability to deliver operational excellence and perform high quality rig moves."

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.
