From the wild opening scene through the heart of this story, Courageous, reveals the story of five fathers, all in law enforcement. One is a bit protective of his kids, yet has a healthy family relationship. Another has abandoned his girlfriend and their child before the little girl’s birth. A third is a Hispanic worker struggling to find his role in a country where his work permit doesn’t necessarily allow him to earn a living. A fourth is divorced, with visitation rights. The final father is the lead in the film – a dad disconnected from son and daughter because he prioritizes his job above his family. When tragedy tears into the circle of five friends with the death of a loved one, the men begin a journey to connect and build into their kids and wives. In stark contrast to these family men, the plot intersects the police officers encounters with a gang. The story weaves in information about the role and influence of fathers in our society. It identifies hard facts about the correlation between “missing” fathers (those who’ve left the home and those still in it) and kids who turn to crime. The movie is a call to accountability. It speaks to the role of men and their responsibility in raising strong, healthy kids. Courageous offers great action, plenty of humorous moments and some very difficult scenes which will evoke a variety of emotion responses from the viewer.

Deutsche Bank underwrites SAP's acquisition financing - sources

Deutsche Bank (DBKGn.DE) has underwritten 7 billion euros (5.50 billion pounds) in loans to back German business software maker SAP's (SAPG.DE), $7.3 billion acquisition of US-based expense management software firm Concur Technologies (CNQR.O), sources close to the deal said. Deutsche Bank is the sole underwriter and adviser on the loan and it is the biggest underwrite by a single bank for a European loan so far this year, according to Thomson Reuters LPC data. SAP has a good track record for repaying acquisition debt quickly through cash flow and bond issuance. The company then agreed a 2.4 billion euro term loan in May 2012 to back its acquisition of Ariba that was fully repaid by December 2012, while its acquisition of hybris in June 2013 was backed with a 1 billion euro term loan that fully repaid by December 2013.
