MEXICO CITY, Nov. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Grupo Posadas, S.A.B. de C.V. (the "Company") announces that early settlement of its previously announced offer to purchase for cash (the "Tender Offer") any and all of its U.S. $200 million in aggregate principal amount of outstanding 9.250% Senior Notes due 2015 (the "Existing Notes") and solicitation of consents (the "Consents") to amend the indenture relating to the Notes (the "Consent Solicitation" and, together with the Tender Offer, the "Offer"), occurred on November 30, 2012 (the "Early Settlement Date") for all Existing Notes that were tendered by 5:00 P.M., New York City time on November 23, 2012 (the "Early Tender and Consent Time").  The Company and the guarantors of the Existing Notes also executed a supplemental indenture on the Early Settlement Date to implement the amendments to the indenture governing the Existing Notes (the "Indenture") for which the Consents were sought.

Results of the Offer as of Early Tender and Consent Time

As previously announced, as of the Early Tender and Consent Time, U.S. $116.629 million aggregate principal amount of the Existing Notes had been validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn) in the Tender Offer, and Consents in respect of those Existing Notes had been delivered in the Consent Solicitation.  Holders of Existing Notes who validly tendered Existing Notes and delivered Consents in the Offer, and whose tender and delivery of Consents were accepted by the Company, have received, in addition to accrued and unpaid interest, for each U.S.$1,000 principal amount of Notes tendered, an amount in cash in U.S. dollars equal to U.S.$1,060.00 (the "Total Consideration"), consisting of (i) an amount equal to U.S.$1,015.00, (the "Tender Offer Consideration") plus (ii) an amount equal to U.S.$45.00, (the "Early Tender Fee").

The Offer expired at 5:00 P.M., New York City time, on November 30, 2012 (the "Expiration Time").  Holders who validly tendered Notes and delivered the related Consents after the Early Tender and Consent Time, but at or prior to the Expiration Time, and whose tender and delivery are accepted by the Company, will receive the Tender Offer Consideration, but not the Early Tender Fee. U.S. $100,000 aggregate principal amount of the Existing Notes, representing approximately .05% of the outstanding aggregate principal amount of Existing Notes, were tendered after the Early Tender and Consent Time but at or prior to the Expiration Time.

The terms and conditions of the Offer are set forth in an offer to purchase and consent solicitation statement, dated October 31, 2012 (the "Offer to Purchase"). 

The completion of the Tender Offer and Consent Solicitation were conditioned on, among other things:  (i) the receipt by the Company of an amount of net proceeds, in cash, not less than the amount of cash required to settle the payment of the Tender Offer Consideration or Total Consideration, as applicable, plus accrued interest for the Existing Notes validly tendered pursuant to the Tender Offer and Consent Solicitation, and all related expenses in connection therewith from one or more new debt offerings on terms satisfactory to the Company in its sole discretion at or before the applicable settlement date (the "Financing Condition"); (ii) the delivery to the information agent appointed by the Company (described below) of the Consents of holders of at least a majority in principal amount of the Existing Notes at or prior to the Expiration Time (the "Requisite Consents"); and (iii) the execution and delivery of the supplemental indenture  to the Indenture(described above) by the Company, the guarantors of the Existing Notes and the trustee under the Indenture.

The Requisite Consents have been obtained, the supplemental indenture has been executed and the Financing Condition has been satisfied as of the Early Settlement Date.

Final Settlement

The Company expects payment for the Existing Notes validly tendered after the Early Tender and Consent Time and at or prior to the Expiration Time and accepted by the Company for purchase to be made on or about December 3, 2012.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015.

The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
