NetDimensions (Holdings) Limited: Intention to delist

HONG KONG, CHINA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/20/17 -- NetDimensions (Holdings) Limited (AIM: NETD) (OTCQX: NETDY)

AIM: NETD; OTCQX: NETDY

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

NetDimensions (Holdings) Limited

("NetDimensions" or the "Company")

Intention to delist

The Board of NetDimensions (the "Board") notes the announcement earlier today by Learning Technologies Group plc ("LTG") that its recommended cash offer to acquire the entire issued and to be issued ordinary share capital of NetDimensions not already owned by LTG or persons acting in concert with it (the "Offer") has become unconditional in all respects.

LTG also announced on 15 March 2017, that as at 1:00 p.m. on 14 March 2017, LTG had received valid acceptances of the Offer in respect of 46,817,248 NetDimensions Shares, representing approximately 91.30 per cent. of the existing issued share capital of NetDimensions. Accordingly, LTG has acquired or agreed to acquire (including by way of acceptance of the Offer) in aggregate 93.25 per cent. in nominal value of the NetDimensions Shares.

By virtue of its shareholdings and acceptances of the Offer, LTG has acquired, or agreed to acquire NetDimensions Shares representing in excess of 75 per cent. of the voting rights of NetDimensions. Accordingly, at the request of LTG, and as set out in the Offer Document dated 21 February 2017, the Board has applied for the cancellation of admission to trading on AIM of NetDimensions Shares (the "Delisting").

NetDimensions confirms that the 20 business days' notice period for the cancellation of listing of NetDimensions Shares on AIM and the trading of NetDimensions Shares on AIM has commenced. Admission of the NetDimensions Shares to trading on AIM will be cancelled without the requirement for a resolution of shareholders approving such cancellation pursuant to Rule 41 of the AIM Rules. It is anticipated that the cancellation of listing and trading will take effect on or shortly after 8.00 a.m. (London time) on 19 April 2017.

The Delisting will significantly reduce the liquidity and marketability of any NetDimensions Shares not acquired by LTG and the Board therefore recommends those NetDimensions Shareholders who have not already accepted the Offer to accept the Offer as soon as possible. The procedure for acceptance of the Offer is set out in the Offer Document.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists discussed...
