Axtel Announces 65% Participation During The Early Tender Period And The Signing Of The Tower Sale Agreement With American Tower Corp

Axtel, S.A.B. de C.V. (BMV: AXTELCPO; OTC: AXTLY) (“AXTEL” or “the Company”), a Mexican fixed-line integrated telecommunications company, today announced that the Company has obtained 65% aggregate participation as of the expiration of the Early Tender Date with respect to the exchange offers being made by its subsidiary Axtel Capital, S. de R.L. de C.V. to exchange any and all of AXTEL’s outstanding Senior Notes due 2017 and 2019 (the “Old Notes”) for new Senior Secured Notes and Senior Secured Convertible Dollar-indexed Notes, both due in 2020 (the “New Notes”), and a cash payment (the “Exchange Offers”).

Additionally, the Company is also pleased to announce the signing of definitive agreements with MATC Digital, S. de R.L. de C.V., a subsidiary of American Tower Corporation (“American Tower”), for the sale of 883 telecommunication sites for approximately US$250 million. As previously informed, AXTEL is agreeing to lease back space on these telecommunication sites from American Tower for initial minimum lease terms ranging from 6 to 15 years depending on the technology installation at each site. The closing of this transaction is conditioned upon and expected to occur concurrently with the closing of the Exchange Offers on January 31, 2013.

Mr. Felipe Canales, AXTEL´s Chief Financial Officer, stated, “We are very pleased with the tower sale transaction. Not only because it is a key element of the recapitalization strategy we announced mid last year, but also because we are partnering with American Tower, a world-class company that will significantly contribute to enhance our operating performance”. Mr. Canales went on to state, “We are also in the final stage of successfully closing the notes’ exchange offer. This will strengthen AXTEL’s capital structure and permit the Company to continue implementing its key strategic initiatives."
