As set out in the notice of redemption, Parex will redeem, as of September 25, 2014 ("Redemption Date"), all of the aggregate principal amount of the Debentures for cash.

In accordance with the terms of the Indenture governing the Debentures, Parex can redeem the Debentures prior to June 30, 2016, in whole or in part, provided that the volume-weighted average trading price of the common shares of Parex ("Parex Shares") for the 20 consecutive trading days ending on the fifth trading day preceding the date that the notice of redemption is issued exceeds 125% of the C$10.15 per share conversion price. "We are proud that the strong performance of our operations and equity has put us in a position to redeem the Debentures well in advance of their June 30, 2016 maturity date. In addition, the early redemption simplifies our capital structure and provides enhanced financial flexibility," stated Ken Pinsky, Chief Financial Officer.

Holders of the Debentures have the right to convert their Debentures, at their option, into Parex Shares at a conversion price of C$10.15 per Parex Share at any time prior 5:00 pm Calgary time on September 24, 2014.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud.

You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
