GLENTEL Completes 83% Acquisition of AMT Group - Australia's Largest 
Multi-Carrier Mobile Phone Retailer 
BURNABY, BC, Nov. 1, 2012 /CNW/ - GLENTEL Inc. (TSX: GLN), the largest 
independent multi-carrier phone retailer in Canada, announced today that it 
has completed the 83% share purchase of Sydney, Australia-based AMT Group Pty 
Ltd (AMT Group), which operates under the Allphones retail brand. 
"I would like to welcome the AMT Group's shareholders, employees, Allphones' 
franchisees and licensees to the GLENTEL family," stated Tom Skidmore, 
GLENTEL's President and Chief Executive Officer. "With the successful 
acquisition of the AMT Group, GLENTEL now operates in three distinct world 
markets and on two continents, with over 750 retail locations worldwide." 
AMT Group is the leading independent multi-carrier mobile phone and 
telecommunications retailer in Australia, operating and managing over 210 
stores, with annual sales of approximately AUD$162 million and over 400 
corporate employees. As part of the agreement, the Executive Shareholders have 
retained a 17% equity stake in AMT Group and continue to work in their 
executive leadership roles. 
Financial Highlights: 
The total purchase price for 83% of AMT Group was AUD$66.1 million (CDN$67.7 
million) of cash considerations and the assumption of an operating facility 
that was drawn down by AUD$4.4 million (CDN$4.5 million) at the time of 
completion, for an enterprise value of AUD$70.5 million (CDN$72.2 million). 
GLENTEL funded the acquisition through CDN$17.7 million of cash and a CDN$50.0 
million syndicated senior credit facility. The final purchase price is subject 
to a final working capital adjustment. 
The company secured a new CDN$68.5 million 5-year syndicated senior credit 
facility, of which CDN$50.0 million was used for the transaction and CDN$18.5 
million was used for general working capital and operating purposes. The 
company refinanced the CDN$22.8 million remaining on the 3-year fixed-term 
acquisition loan used for the Diamond Wireless acquisition into a 5-year 
syndicated senior credit facility and increased its operating facility from 
CDN$10.0 million to CDN$15.0 million.
