New York, NY--
Paul Hastings LLP, a leading global law firm, announced today that it represented Citigroup and Credit Suisse as dealer managers in a $115 million exchange offer and initial purchasers in a new $36 million issuance of senior secured bonds in connection with a financing for Mexican telecommunications company Axtel, S.A.B. de C.V. The new financing of senior secured bonds was issued in two separate offerings as reopenings of Axtel’s Senior Secured Notes due 2020. The Senior Secured Notes issued in connection with the exchange offer were also issued as a reopening of the same series of bonds in exchange for a portion of two other series of Axtel’s debt securities: Axtel’s outstanding 7.625% Senior Notes due 2017 and 9.00% Senior Notes due 2019, with the 2017 notes taking priority in the exchange. This complex liability management transaction, which effectively represented three distinct issuances of securities, was successfully accomplished in order to “term out” certain of Axtel’s most immediately maturing debt.
