CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 10/19/16 -- Logan International Inc. ("Logan") (TSX: LII) today announced that the total consideration payable to holders of its common shares by a wholly-owned subsidiary of Rubicon Oilfield International Holdings, L.P. ("Rubicon"), pursuant to the previously announced arrangement transaction whereby Rubicon will acquire all of the issued and outstanding common shares of Logan, is approximately CDN$1.59 per common share (the "Arrangement").
The terms of the definitive agreement (the "Arrangement Agreement") in respect of the Arrangement permitted Logan and its subsidiaries to continue with their efforts to complete the sale of all of the equity of, or all or substantially all of the assets of, three of Logan's subsidiaries, provided that such sales were completed within a specified timeframe, with any net proceeds received by Logan or its applicable subsidiary pursuant to the Subsidiary Sales to be added to the CDN$1.49 price per common share payable to the holders of the Logan common shares (the "Shareholders") under the Arrangement.
As announced on October 17, 2016, Logan completed the sale of all of the outstanding shares of its subsidiaries, Logan SuperAbrasives Inc. and Logan Completion Systems, Inc., both of which are Texas corporations, and the sale of substantially all of the assets (other than the assets required to operate the business of the Logan Oil Tools Canada division) of its subsidiary, Logan Completion Systems Inc., an Alberta corporation, for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately US$3.86 million (collectively, the "Subsidiary Sales"). Logan and Rubicon are now substantially in agreement as to the amount to be deducted from the gross proceeds to Logan of the Subsidiary Sales, as a result of Rubicon agreeing to be subject to certain limited post-closing liabilities, and the transaction expenses attributable to the Subsidiary Sales. Accordingly, the amount per share to be added to the CDN$1.49 price per common share payable to the Shareholders is approximately CDN$0.10 (subject to certain immaterial adjustments that will be settled between now and closing of the Arrangement), resulting in a total purchase price payable of approximately CDN$1.59 per common share.
A special meeting of the Shareholders will be held on October 20, 2016 to consider, and, if thought fit, approve the Arrangement. Assuming, among other things, that Shareholder approval is obtained, closing of the Arrangement is anticipated to occur on or about October 21, 2016.
Full details of the Arrangement, including detailed instructions for Shareholders on obtaining the cash consideration to which they are entitled under the Arrangement, can be found in the management information circular of Logan filed under the profile of Logan at www.sedar.com.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels.

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. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
