Le 3 mars 2017, CGG S.A ("CGG" ou la "Société") a entamé un processus de restructuration financière dans le but de réduire de manière drastique la dette et son coût en numéraire pour les aligner sur sa génération de trésorerie. Afin de faciliter ces discussions relatives à sa restructuration menées sous l'égide d'un mandataire ad hoc CGG a conclu des accords de confidentialité et initié des discussions avec (i) certains membres du comité ad hoc représentant la majorité du montant en principal de la dette sécurisée (le "Comité de Coordination des Prêteurs Sécurisés"), (ii) les membres du comité ad hoc représentant environ 40 % du montant en principal des Senior Notes (le "Comité ad hoc des Senior Notes"), (iii) le représentant des masses des porteurs d'OCEANEs (qui détient également environ 8,9 % des OCEANEs venant à échéance en 2019 et environ 10,0% des OCEANESs venant à échéance en 2020), (iv) DNCA, actionnaire représentant environ 7,9 % du capital et environ 7,7 % des droits de vote de CGG, ainsi que environ 19,1 % du montant en principal des Senior Notes venant à échéance en 2020 et environ 20,7 % des OCEANEs venant à échéance en 2020 et (v) deux autres actionnaires significatifs, Bpifrance Participations représentant environ 9,4 % du capital et environ 10,8 % des droits de vote de CGG, et AMS Energie représentant environ 8,3 % du capital et environ 8,1 % des droits de vote de CGG (collectivement les "Parties Prenantes").

Elle est diffusée conformément aux obligations de la Société au titre des accords de confidentialité et afin de satisfaire à ses obligations de communication au marché de l'ensemble des informations privilégiées échangées avec les Parties Prenantes au cours des discussions. En tout état de cause, tout plan de restructuration nécessitant la capitalisation totale d'environ 2.0 milliards de dollars US (incluant les intérêts courus) de high yield bonds (Senior Notes) et d'OCEANEs entraînera une dilution significative pour les actionnaires et/ou les autres investisseurs dans la structure du capital de la Société. La Société a formulé une proposition de restructuration conforme à son intérêt social et qui préserve l'intégrité du Groupe et fournit un cadre pérenne pour ses activités, ses salariés et ses clients. En outre, cette proposition offre aux actionnaires actuels l'opportunité de participer au redressement de la Société. Cette proposition est soutenue par DNCA (en qualité d'actionnaire institutionnel de longue date, d'obligataire et de porteur d'OCEANEs de la Société) et le Comité de Coordination des Prêteurs Sécurisés. Cette proposition n'est pas soutenue par les autres Parties Prenantes dont les propositions figurent en pages 20 à 29 et 47 à 56 de la présentation ci-jointe. -     après conversion en capital de la totalité des Senior Notes et des OCEANES (la "Conversion de la Dette Unsecured"), de 4,9% avant exercice des BSA à $4 et de 10,3% en cas d'exercice de ces BSA ;       -     après Conversion de la Dette Unsecured, augmentation de capital sous forme d'ABSA avec droits préférentiels de souscription (DPS) et apport de liquidités sous forme de Senior Notes couplé à des bons de souscription à prix minime, de 10,4% avant exercice des BSA à $4 et à $5 ; de 14,3% après exercice des BSA à $4 et avant exercice des BSA à $5, et de 19,4% après exercice des BSA à $4 et à $5 ;       -     de 3,9% du capital en l'absence de participation à l'augmentation de capital sous forme d'ABSA et d'exercice des BSA à $4, et après augmentation de capital sous forme d'ABSA et d'émission des BSA à prix de souscription minime couplé à l'apport de liquidités sous forme de Senior Notes. En outre, les actionnaires percevraient le produit de la cession des BSA à $4 et des DPS liés à l'augmentation de capital sous forme d'ABSA. Jean-Georges Malcor, Directeur Général de CGG, a déclaré : « Les discussions ont été complexes en raison des efforts importants demandés à toutes les parties prenantes. La proposition que nous avons formulée est dans l'intérêt social de la Société. Elle préserve l'intégrité du Groupe et fournit un cadre pérenne pour les activités, les salariés et les clients de la Société. Cette proposition de restructuration repose sur un désendettement important avec une dette brute d'environ 3 milliards de dollars US réduite à environ 1 milliard de dollars US par conversion en actions et offre à la Société la flexibilité financière nécessaire pour prendre en compte les différents scénarios de redressement. Les actionnaires ont la possibilité de participer de manière significative au redressement de la Société après restructuration, par le biais de l'augmentation de capital avec maintien du droit préférentiel de souscription et des deux types de bons de souscription qui leurs sont réservés. Cette proposition est soutenue par plusieurs des Parties Prenantes clés.

Karis Morrall, Communications & Partnerships Manager for the DPS CareerConnect program commented, "The awards committee was very impressed by the thoughtful, engaging workshop that Gates held for our middle school students." Working with the Colorado Advanced Manufacturing Alliance (CAMA) throughout the 2016 school year, the program has hosted over 200 7th and 8th Grade students at the company's Englewood, Colorado technical laboratory facility. During the all-day workshops, students took active roles in developing solutions to real manufacturing challenges related to engineering design, procurement, marketing, finance, and production with positive results. One student wrote, "Thank you for allowing us to have the experience that we did, it opened a lot of new possible career choices for me." "Exposing these diverse groups of students to the different career pathways the manufacturing sector has to offer was an extremely rewarding experience," said Cindy Cookson, Director Global Product Lines and chair of the Gates "Empowering Creators" committee. The program shows younger students that manufacturing is a good option as a career choice before career planning starts in High School. It is also easily duplicated for implementation in other communities. Gates Corporation is the world's leading manufacturer of power transmission belts and a premier global manufacturer of fluid power products. Our highly engineered products are critical components used in diverse industrial and automotive applications where the cost of failure is very high relative to the cost of our products. We provide a differentiated value proposition to our customers by offering a complete portfolio of premium product and service solutions for both replacement and first-fit applications across our targeted end markets, which encompass process and specialty, construction, agriculture, energy, transportation, and automotive. We sell our products globally under the Gates brand, which is recognized by distributors, original equipment manufacturers, and installers as the premium brand for quality and technological innovation, a reputation which we have built for over a century since our founding in 1911. As an engineering leader with a strong foundation in research and development, Gates is committed to advancing the science of motion performance by developing safe, forward-thinking products, services, systems, and solutions, as well as fostering long-term customer and employee relationships. Headquartered in Denver, Colorado, Gates employs over 14,000 people across 106 locations in 30 countries. If it moves you, there's a good chance Gates has a part in it. Denver Public Schools' CareerSpark Industry Exploration Program partners with Denver businesses to expose middle school students to professional work environments and inspires them to consider careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) industries. Through CareerSpark, DPS students learn about careers available within a particular industry and experience aspects of STEM careers through hands-on, engaging activities. They also learn about post-high school educational paths to the careers included in the event.

SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Bulletproof 360, makers of Bulletproof Coffee and other performance-enhancing food and beverage products, announced today that it raised more than $19 million in Series B funding led by CAVU Venture Partners, the high-profile consumer-focused investment firm led by Rohan Oza, Clayton Christopher and Brett Thomas. Trinity Ventures, an original Series A investor for the brand and an early Starbucks and Jamba Juice investor, also participated in the round. The injection of funding follows an initial $9 million round in 2015, and will support the brand’s high growth trajectory both in e-commerce and at retail locations. “For too long, consumers were satisfied with cheap food that tasted good, without much regard for what it was actually made of,” said company founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Dave Asprey. “Now, people are waking up to the idea that food is meant to fuel us, and that what matters most is how your food makes you feel. We raised this round of funding from CAVU Ventures, one of the world’s most innovative investors in the consumer space, to continue leading the way in the performance nutrition revolution. This injection of capital will ensure that people get faster, easier access to the world’s highest performing coffee and food.” CAVU Venture Partners has a strong track record of building successful consumer brands, as well as a high-profile reputation in the food and beverage category. Its founders are known in the industry for success stories including vitaminwater, smartwater and Deep Eddy Vodka. Most recently, the firm saw return on its investment in Bai Brands through its acquisition by Dr. Pepper Snapple Group (DPS) for $1.7 billion in late 2016. “Dave Asprey is a visionary and creative disruptor, and we’ve long admired his commitment to bringing high quality food, beverage and supplement products to consumers via the Bulletproof platform,” said Rohan Oza, Partner at CAVU. “We feel Bulletproof has created a whole new category around products that fuel human performance. We’re excited to partner with Dave and the Bulletproof team to continue the company’s growth momentum.” The funding round comes on the heels of the hiring of Anna Collins as Chief Operating Officer earlier this year. Collins, who joined Bulletproof from Amazon, is responsible for the company’s growth strategy and operations, driving multi-channel growth for the company’s portfolio of products, including the signature Bulletproof® Coffee, Brain Octane® oil, FATwater™, Collagen Bars, Collagen Protein and more. “Since inception, Bulletproof’s performance-based approach has had an enormous impact on the health and wellness industry,” said Dan Scholnick, General Partner at Trinity Ventures. “Similarly, CAVU and Rohan have consistently championed products that disrupt the beverage segment with more nutritious and ‘better for you’ alternatives. Bulletproof is all of that and more – so this partnership is not only natural, but also quite powerful. We’re excited to see this latest investment propel the brand and the company to new heights.” In addition to two existing Bulletproof Cafés in Southern California, the brand has plans for a 2017 retail expansion to New York City and other locations yet to be announced. Asprey’s newest book, titled HEAD STRONG, was released on April 4 and is the second Bulletproof book to reach the New York Times bestseller list. The Series B funding supports the brand’s momentum from the first quarter of the year and will aid in its brick and mortar expansion, as well as planned product launches and other innovative developments. Asprey founded Bulletproof in 2013 after spending two decades and more than $1 million to hack his own biology. As the world’s first human performance and nutrition company to focus on making the state of high performance a daily reality for everyone, Bulletproof continues to provide a range of solutions for consumers to improve their bodies and minds. Founded by biohacker, bestselling author, and Bulletproof coffee creator Dave Asprey, Bulletproof 360 is dedicated to providing the world with groundbreaking, science-based information, techniques, tools and products to help people perform better, increase focus, enhance energy, and live longer.

Browse 138 market data Tables and 49 Figures spread through 185 Pages and in-depth TOC on "Vision Positioning System Market". Early buyers will receive 10% customization on this report. With the advent of the GPS (Global Positioning System) technology, the application of positioning systems has increased significantly. Positioning systems are extensively used for outdoor navigation in various sectors, such as defense, tourism, and logistics & transportation, among others. However, for navigation in indoor locations, the GPS-based positioning systems lack accuracy and signal strength. Besides, GPS signals are also restricted over various high sensitive areas, such as military bases, research labs, and underground locations. Hence, vision positioning systems are extensively used for local navigation in these areas. The camera systems segment is expected to be the major contributor to the overall vision positioning system market. Camera systems are used to capture real-time images to the processors which store the images in memory. In camera systems various sensors are used, such as pressure, heat, proximity, and accelerometers, among others that provide information about the environment. Other components such as processors and communication devices control operations and provide operational data to operators. The commercial sector is projected to register the highest growth in almost all countries across the world. The commercial application segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the vision positioning system market in 2017 due to the high usage of vision positioning systems in the automotive industry and increasing automation in various other industries in almost all countries across the world. This segment is also projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2017 to 2022. Asia Pacific is the fastest-growing market for vision positioning systems during the forecast period. The growth of the Asia Pacific vision positioning system market can be attributed to the increased demand for industrial automation in Asian countries such as China, Japan, and India. The Asia-Pacific market growth can be attributed to the increasing use of drones for military surveillance and the increase in industrial automation. Key players offering vision positioning systems include ABB (Switzerland), DJI (China), Sick AG (Germany), FANUC Corporation (Japan), and Locata Corporation (Australia), among others.

"Alban is a very successful professional outsourcing company and some of its key people have been involved in engineering recruitment for more than 25 years.  We look forward to working with Gary Smith and his team at DPS Alban Technical Ltd., in building up a more significant professional outsourcing operation in the UK in the years ahead."

The global engineering firm to use Deltek to support its new business structure and scale with projected future growth HERNDON, Virginia, Feb. 23, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Deltek, the leading global provider of enterprise software and information solutions for project-based businesses, today announced international engineering firm DPS Engineering has chosen to standardise on Deltek's integrated project ERP solution to unify its operations, improve resource management and ensure a future-proof infrastructure for the business. Headquartered in Ireland, DPS Engineering has grown its revenue and workforce significantly over the last four years. DPS now has over 1,200 employees globally across most major regions including Ireland, UK, North America, Middle East and Asia Pacific. Managing the company's operations with this significant growth had become challenging due to disparate systems and manual processes, and the firm required a best-in-class solution to unify all operations, support its new business structure and scale with its projected future growth. Following a comprehensive evaluation of potential solutions, DPS Engineering selected Deltek. Deltek project ERP will help DPS maintain project transparency and control, reduce the duplication of effort and minimise lost opportunities. In addition, the Deltek solution will improve resource management and allow DPS to optimally schedule each of its resources – and highlight in advance where new talent is needed as its project portfolio expands. "We approached Deltek to discuss a number of challenges that we faced from an administrative perspective, and right from the beginning it was clear its team understood our issues and could provide the expertise and technology we were looking for. DPS Engineering had just gone through a full restructure as a result of our significant growth, yet we were still operating predominantly on legacy systems, Excel spreadsheets and manual processes. We needed a business solution that would effectively and efficiently support our entire business – now and in the future – and Deltek delivered just that," said Cathal Farrelly, Group Engineering Director at DPS Engineering. "DPS Engineering has experienced phenomenal growth in the last four years and doesn't show any signs of slowing down. We are very excited that DPS chose Deltek, and we are confident that our industry-leading project ERP solution will deliver the measurable benefits they are expecting, both now and as the firm grows," said Fergus Gilmore, VP and Managing Director at Deltek UK and Central Europe.
