MEXICO CITY, April 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- (NYSE: MXT, BMV: MAXCOM.CPO) – Maxcom Telecomunicaciones, S.A.B. de C.V. ("Maxcom" or the "Company") announced today that the exchange offer (the "Exchange Offer") for any and all of its outstanding 11% Senior Notes due 2014 (the "Old Notes") for its Step‐Up Senior Notes due 2020 (the "New Notes") expired at 5:00 p.m. New York City time on April 24, 2013.
The exchange agent for the Exchange Offer has advised Maxcom that as of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on April 24, 2013, approximately US$123,856,000 or 61.93%, of the Old Notes had been validly tendered and not withdrawn in the Exchange Offer.
Maxcom announced that since the conditions for the consummation of the Exchange Offer and the consent solicitation were not satisfied or waived, including the minimum tender condition, the Exchange Offer will not be consummated. Any notes tendered in the Exchange Offer will be returned promptly without expense to the noteholders.
In addition, Maxcom also announced that the related equity tender offer for all of its Series A Common Stock and related CPOs and ADSs (the "Equity Tender Offer"), which was conditioned upon the Exchange Offer, will not be consummated. Based on the preliminary count by the depositary for the Equity Tender Offer, securities representing approximately 354,540,391 shares of Maxcom's Series A Common Stock (including 39,318 ADSs), or approximately 44.9% of the total outstanding Series A Common Stock, had been tendered prior to the expiration of the Equity Tender Offer.
Because the Exchange Offer and the concurrent Equity Tender Offer have not been consummated, Maxcom has not received the capital contribution the purchaser in connection with the Equity Tender Offer agreed to make. In light of this outcome, Maxcom is considering all of its alternatives including, but not limited to, commencement of a Chapter 11 case or other restructuring proceeding.
This announcement is for informational purposes only and does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy the New Notes nor an offer to purchase Old Notes nor a solicitation of consents.
