MEXICO CITY, Sept. 24, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Maxcom Telecomunicaciones S.A.B. de C.V. (BMV: MAXCOM A, OTC: MXMTY) ("Maxcom" or the "Company") announces that Transtelco Acquisition III, S. de R.L. de C.V. (the "Offeror"), today initiated, in accordance with the Mexican Stock Exchange Act (Ley del Mercado de Valores or "LMV") and the General Regulations for Issuers and Other Participants of the Stock Exchange (Disposiciones de Carácter General Aplicables a Emisoras y a Otros Participantes del Mercado de Valores (the "Regulations") a mandatory acquisition tender offer (the "Equity Tender Offer") to acquire through Bolsa Mexicana de Valores, S.A.B. de C.V., S.A.B. de C.V., S.A.B. de C.V., up to all of the shares representing the capital stock of the Company, which represent 276'471,081 ordinary, nominative, without par value, subscribed and fully paid series "A" shares, at a purchase price of $2.20 (two Pesos 20/100, Mexican pesos), per share.
The period of the Equity Tender Offer, under the LMV and the Regulations and, in terms of the corresponding Offering Memorandum, will be 20 business days, which may be extended by the Offeror at its sole discretion, complying with the requirements of the Law. The Equity Tender Offer period is expected to conclude, if not extended, on October 21, 2021.
Yesterday, Transtelco Holding, Inc. ("Transtelco") launched a cash tender offer (the "Notes Tender Offer") to buy the outstanding principal amount of the 8% Senior Secured Notes due 2024 (the "Notes") issued by Maxcom, as well as a solicitation of consents to amend the indenture governing the Notes (the "Consent Solicitation"), the foregoing pursuant to the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Notes Tender Offer and Consent Solicitation Statement made by Transtelco, as of September 23, 2021.
The Notes Tender Offer and Consent Solicitation will remain in effect until October 21, 2021 unless extended at the request of Transtelco.
Furthermore, the successful conclusion of the Equity Tender Offer is conditioned upon the successful completion of the Notes Tender Offer and vice versa, among other conditions.
In the case of the successful closing of the Equity Tender Offer, this would result in a change in control of the Company, consequently triggering the mandatory redemption of the Junior Pay-in-Kind Notes (the "Junior PIK Notes"), we estimate that the amount payable to Junior PIK Notes holders would be approximately USD$7.6 million, assuming the implicit Equity Value generated in the acquisition of the Company.
If both processes are successfully concluded, Maxcom expects that the outcome would be key to improving its financial viability as well as the continuity of its operations, and would constitute a decisive step in consolidating its value proposition in the medium and long term.
Contrarily, in case of an unsuccessful conclusion of both processes, Maxcom would continue analyzing different alternatives, including a potential reorganization procedure, in order to safeguard the continuity of its operations, prioritizing always the fulfillment of the legal and fiscal regulatory framework, as well as the interests of our collaborators and clients.
