Virgin Media Inc. (“Virgin Media”) (NASDAQ:VMED) (LSE:VMED) today announced the results to date of the previously announced cash tender offers by its subsidiary Virgin Media Finance PLC (the “Issuer”) to purchase any and all of its dollar- and euro-denominated 9.50% Senior Notes due 2016 (the “2016 Notes”) and up to $250 million aggregate principal amount (the “Maximum Tender Amount”) of its dollar-denominated 8.375% Senior Notes due 2019 and its sterling-denominated 8.875% Senior Notes due 2019 (the “2019 Notes” and with the 2016 Notes, the “Notes”) (the “Offers”).
