Eutelsat Communications (Paris:ETL) (NYSE Euronext Paris: ETL) and its wholly owned subsidiary, Satélites Mexicanos, S.A. de C.V. (operating as “Eutelsat Americas” since January 2014) announce that the noteholders of Satélites Mexicanos, S.A. de C.V. were notified today of the early redemption, on 15 May 2014, of all the notes issued on 5 May 2011 and 30 March 2012 (the “Notes”’), initially maturing on 15 May 2017. The Notes represent an aggregate principal amount of approximately US$360 million and bear a coupon of 9.5%. They will be redeemed at 104.75% of their principal amount, plus accrued and unpaid interest to the redemption date. As expected, this transaction will trigger accelerated recognition as financial expenses of deferred financing costs, which amounted to US$10.9 million as of 31 December 2013.
The early redemption of the Notes was pre-financed in December 2013 with the issuance by Eutelsat S.A. of 6-year senior unsecured bonds for a total of €930 million at very attractive conditions (2.625% coupon).
Following the redemption of the Notes, Satélites Mexicanos, S.A. de C.V. intends to terminate its obligations to file or furnish reports under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by filing Form 15F with the Securities and Exchange Commission of the United States of America.
