Virgin Media Inc. (NASDAQ:VMED) (LSE:VMED), a leading UK entertainment and communications business, today announced that it has successfully completed the syndication of a term loan B facility in an aggregate principal amount of £675 million under its new senior facilities agreement. The term loan B facility will bear interest at a rate of LIBOR plus 375 basis points and the final maturity date will be 31 December 2015. It is expected that the lenders that have been allocated participations in the term loan B facility will enter into commitment documentation shortly. Drawdown under the new senior credit facilities is expected to occur promptly after those commitments are fully documented, subject to customary closing conditions. As previously announced, Virgin Media intends to use any proceeds from the term loan A and term loan B facilities under the new senior facilities agreement, among other things, to refinance its existing senior facilities agreement in full. The revolving credit facility will be available to finance ongoing working capital requirements and general corporate purposes.
