Solicitation Statement Dated February 20, 2013
MEXICO CITY, March 1, 2013
MEXICO CITY, March 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --(NYSE:MXT,BMV:MAXCOM.CPO) –
Maxcom Telecomunicaciones, S.A.B. de C.V. ("Maxcom" or the "Company") today
announced that it has amended and supplemented the pending 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").
The Company is extending the early participation date and the withdrawal date
to 5:00 p.m. New York City Time on March 13, 2013 and is extending the
expiration date to 5:00 p.m. New York City time on March 27, 2013. The
expiration date of the concurrent equity tender offer for Maxcom's Series A
Common Stock and related CPOs and ADSs (the "Equity Tender Offer") is also
being extended and, under Mexican law, must be extended by at least five
business days if extended at all. As a result, the expiration date of both
the Exchange Offer and the Equity Tender Offer is being extended by five
business days to March 27, 2013.
The exchange agent for the Exchange Offer has advised the Company that as of
5:00 p.m., New York City Time, on February 28, 2013, no Old Notes had been
tendered or withdrawn pursuant to the Exchange Offer. No tenders would be
expected at this early stage of the Exchange Offer process.
In addition, the Company is also amending and supplementing the Exchange Offer
in order to (i) clarify that the Company will not consummate the Exchange
Offer unless the Equity Tender Offer is consummated simultaneously, which
triggers a binding obligation of the purchaser in the Equity Tender Offer to
make a capital contribution to Maxcom, which capital contribution will be in
the amount of approximately US$45 million, (ii) provide that the minimum
principal amount of the Old Notes that must be tendered in order to
participate in the Exchange Offer is US$2,000 and (iii) provide information
about the Company's unaudited year-end and fourth quarter financial
information for 2012.
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 (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 Rule144A
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 Rule902 under the
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.
