"This sale also provides additional liquidity to support our investments in the deployment of our next generation networks."

"Nextel Peru has been an integral part of NII for fifteen years, and we are grateful to all the Nextel Peru employees for their dedication and service," added Shindler.

The Company was advised by Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. and Jones Day.
