You could also have bumped your previous request... Anyway, nothing new since my last failed attempt. Have you even try contacting the designer in charge of this job?

Totally forgot that I've posted it before :)

Note that the O and the bowls in letters like P are squared circles in the shape of a super-ellipse a.k.a hyper-elipse*. This was first used for fonts, AFAIK by Hermann Zapf for Melior in 1952. You can add to Ryuk's list in the previous post, another font by Hermann Zapf, Zapf Elliptical 711 http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/bitstream/zapf-elliptical-711/
Essentially the same as Melior (Adobe/Linotype) , URW Latino, and Marseille Serial (Softmaker).

* for the mathematically inclined here is the wiki on the geometric figure known as a super-elipse http://en.wikipedia.org

Adding some speculation. I suspect this is not a font as such but the results of work by a logo designer who applied super-ellipse design principles to another font. Check for a fairly high contrast heavy weight font with terminals that match the S. Or the designer could have done the logo from scratch.
