◎メキシコ通信事業者Maxcomが優先株公開で資金調達

【メキシコシティー2013年3月14日PRN=共同JBN】メキシコ通信事業者Maxcom Telecomunicaciones, S.A.B. de C.V.(以下Maxcomもしくは同社、NYSE:MXT, BMV: MAXCOM.CPO)は14日、同社の発行済み利率11%優先株式(以下Old Notes)の一部もしくはすべてを新しい満期2020年ステップアップ型優先株式(以下New Notes)に買い替える株式公開買い付け(以下Exchange Offer)を取り扱う取引代理店が、ニューヨーク時間2013年3月13日午後5時時点で、Old Notesの約1億2017万2000米ドル、すなわち60.09%が有効に入札され、Exchange Offerで回収されたと発表した。

Maxcomに約4500万米ドルにのぼる資本拠出をする株式公開買い付けに関連する株式公開買い付け関係文書と強制力のある義務によって指名された購入者およびその他の共同購入入札者によるMaxcomのシリーズA普通株式および関連するCPOとADS(以下Equity Tender Offer)に対する同時並行株式入札は特に、Exchange Offerの際にOld Notesの少なくとも90%の交換取引を必要条件とする。この条件を満たさない場合、Maxcomは購入者から提供される資本拠出を受け取れない。

Exchange Offerが完結せず、そしてその結果Equity Tender Offerは完了せず、Maxcom への資本拠出が購入者によって行われない場合、Maxcomは(以下のような)さまざまな要因の中でもそれによって生じる業務上および財務上の執行可能性に重大なリスクになると考えている。
 *同社の低次元かつ悪化するキャッシュバランスと流動性比率。
 *Old Notesの下での債務返済義務に対処する同社能力はリスクに陥る可能性がある。
 *このExchange Offerが完了しない場合、同社の信用格付けが1段階以上まで下方修正されうるとの、ある格付け会社の見解。
 *同社はテクノロジー、インフィラストラクチャー、ネットワーク維持に必要な投資をする能力を喪失。

同社がExchange Offerを完了できず、Equity Tender Offerに関係して購入者から提供される追加的な資本および流動性が確保されない場合、同社は法律の定めるところによりほかの選択肢利用を評価・判断して、現金を確保し、債務免除、満期延長、利率引き下げなど、そしてそれだけに限らず、債務契約を再構築しなければならない。

Maxcomは、Exchange Offerが成功裏に終了するならば、株式公開買い付け関連の購入者による資本拠出申し入れが同社に利益をもたらすと認識する。上記に基づき、Maxcomは14日、Exchange Offer への当初の参加期限をExchange Offerの有効期限として2013年3月27日ニューヨーク時間午後5時まで延長した。Exchange Offerの有効期限前に正当に応札されたすべてのOld Notesは、早期参加の配慮を受ける。

Exchange Offerおよび同意要請の完全な取引条件は、「募集要項および同意要請趣意書(Offering Memorandum and Consent Solicitation Statement)」に記載され、そのコピーはOld Notesの有資格所有者がExchange Offerおよび同意要請の情報エージェントであるD.F. King & Co., Inc.に電話+1-800-967-4607(無料)で接触することによって取得できる。

New Notesは、1933年証券法(Securities Act)ないしは、いかなる州証券法にも登録されておらず、米国での無登録での売り出しあるいは売却することができず、また登録要件からの免除適用でないので、譲渡に関しては実質的な制限を受ける。

(i)証券取引所法Rule 144Aで規定された用語としての「qualified institutional buyers(有資格機関投資家)」である米国のOld Notes登録所有者、(ii)ならびに米国外では、証券取引法Rule 902で規定された用語としての「U.S. persons(米国人)」でない個人だけを対象にして、Exchange Offerが提案され、New Notesが提供、発行される。

今回の発表は情報提供だけを目的にしており、New Notesの売却の提案、New Notesの購入応札の勧誘、ないしはOld Notesの購入提案、同意要請ではない。Exchange Offerと同意要請は募集要項および同意要請趣意書と同案内状だけを通じて行われる。

Maxcom Announces Early Participation Results of Exchange Offer

PR52418

MEXICO CITY, Mar. 14, 2013 /PRN=KYODO JBN/ --

(NYSE: MXT, BMV: MAXCOM.CPO) -- Maxcom Telecomunicaciones, S.A.B. de C.V.
("Maxcom" or the "Company") announced today that the exchange agent in the
exchange offer (the "Exchange Offer") for any and all of the Company's
outstanding 11% Senior Notes due 2014 (the "Old Notes") for its new Step-Up
Senior Notes due 2020 (the "New Notes") has advised the Company that as of 5:00
p.m., New York City Time, on March 13, 2013, approximately US$120,172,000, or
60.09%, of the Old Notes had been validly tendered and not withdrawn in the
Exchange Offer.

The concurrent equity tender offer for Maxcom's Series A Common Stock and
related CPOs and ADSs (the "Equity Tender Offer") by the purchaser and the
other co-bidders named in the Equity Tender Offer documents, and the binding
obligation of the purchaser in connection with the Equity Tender Offer to make
a capital contribution to Maxcom, which will be in the amount of approximately
US$45 million, are conditioned upon, among other things, an exchange of at
least 90% of the Old Notes in the Exchange Offer. If this condition is not met,
Maxcom will not receive the capital contribution proposed by the purchaser.

If the Exchange Offer is not consummated and as a result the Equity Tender
Offer is not consummated and the capital contribution to Maxcom is not made by
the purchaser, Maxcom believes there is a significant risk to its operational
and financial viability due to, among other factors:

    * the Company's low and deteriorating cash balances and liquidity ratios,
    * the Company's ability to meet its debt service obligations under the
      Old Notes may be at risk,
    * a statement by one of the rating agencies that if the Exchange Offer is
      not consummated, the Company's credit rating could potentially be
      downgraded by more than one notch, and
    * the Company will not have the ability to make necessary investments in
      technology, infrastructure and maintenance of its network.

If the Company is unable to consummate the Exchange Offer and secure additional
capital and liquidity offered by the purchaser in connection with the Equity
Tender Offer, then the Company will have to evaluate other alternatives
available to it under law to conserve its cash and restructure its debt
obligations including, but not limited to, debt forgiveness, an extension of
maturity, and a lower coupon.

Maxcom recognizes the benefits to the Company of the proposed capital
contribution by the purchaser in connection with the Equity Tender Offer that
is conditioned on the successful completion of the Exchange Offer. Based on the
foregoing, Maxcom announced today that it has extended the early participation
period in the Exchange Offer to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on March 27,
2013, the expiration date of the Exchange Offer. All Old Notes validly tendered
by the expiration date of the Exchange Offer will receive the early
participation consideration.

The complete terms and conditions of the Exchange Offer and consent
solicitation are described in the Offering Memorandum and Consent Solicitation
Statement, copies of which may be obtained by eligible holders of the Old Notes
by contacting D.F. King & Co., Inc., the information agent for the Exchange
Offer and consent solicitation, at +1-800-967-4607 (toll free).

The New Notes have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as
amended (the "Securities Act"), or any state securities laws, and may not be
offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable
exemption from registration requirements, and will therefore be subject to
substantial restrictions on transfer.

The Exchange Offer is being made, and the New Notes are being offered and
issued, only to registered holders of Old Notes (i) in the United States who
are "qualified institutional buyers," as that term is defined in Rule 144A
under the Securities Act and (ii) outside the United States and are persons who
are not "U.S. persons," as that term is defined in Rule 902 under the
Securities Act.

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. The Exchange Offer and
consent solicitation is being made solely by means of the Offering Memorandum
and Consent Solicitation Statement and Letter of Transmittal.
