KINGSTON, Jamaica, April 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Digicel Holdings (Bermuda) Limited (“Holdings”) and Digicel International Finance Limited (“DIFL” or “the Company”) today announced, concurrently with the offers to exchange existing debt of Digicel Limited (“DL”), Digicel Group Two (“DGL Two”) and Digicel Group One Limited (“DGL One”) for various new securities (the “Tender Offers”), the commencement of a consent solicitation seeking consents to effect certain proposed amendments to the indenture (the “Proposed Amendments”) governing the existing 8.75% Senior Secured Notes due 2024 co-issued by Holdings and DIFL (the “Existing DIFL Notes”), which will permit, among other things, the incurrence of additional debt under DIFL’s senior credit facility of up to $100 million.
Holders of Existing DIFL Notes who validly consent to the Proposed Amendments as part of the Consent Solicitation on or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on April 8, 2020 (such date and time, as they may be extended, the “Expiration Date”), will be eligible to receive a consent fee of $1.00 in cash for each $1,000 in principal amount of Existing DIFL Notes for which consents are received on or prior to the Expiration Date.
Approval of the Proposed Amendments requires consents from the holders of at least a majority in aggregate principal amount of the Existing DIFL Notes (the “Requisite Consents”). The Proposed Amendments will become effective and operative upon receipt of the Requisite Consents and the execution of the supplemental indenture with respect to the Existing DIFL Notes (the “Supplemental Indenture”), which may occur prior to the Expiration Date if the Requisite Consents are received before then. Upon the Proposed Amendments becoming effective and operative, all holders of the Existing DIFL Notes would be bound by the terms thereof, even if they did not deliver consents to the Proposed Amendments.
Payment of the consent fee is conditioned upon, among other things, receipt of the Requisite Consents on or prior to the Expiration Date. If all of the conditions to the Consent Solicitation are satisfied or waived, the Company will, promptly after the Expiration Date, pay the consent fee to each holder of Existing DIFL Notes who validly consented and did not revoke their consent on or prior to the Expiration Date.
No consent fee will be paid if the Requisite Consents are not received, if the Consent Solicitation is terminated or if the Proposed Amendments do not otherwise become effective and operative for any reason. Holdings and DIFL reserve the right to terminate, withdraw or amend the Consent Solicitation at any time and from time to time, as described in the Consent Solicitation Statement. None of the Company, the Solicitation Agent (as defined herein), the Information and Tabulation Agent (as defined herein), the trustee or any of their affiliates makes any recommendation as to whether or not holders of the Notes should consent or refrain from consenting with respect to the Notes.
The Consent Solicitation is being made only pursuant to the Consent Solicitation Statement dated April 1, 2020. The Consent Solicitation is not being made to holders of Existing DIFL Notes in any jurisdiction in which the making or acceptance thereof would not be in compliance with the securities, blue sky or other laws of such jurisdiction. In any jurisdiction in which the securities laws or blue sky laws require the Consent Solicitation to be made by a licensed broker or dealer, the Consent Solicitation will be deemed to be made on behalf of Holdings and DIFL by one or more registered brokers or dealers that are licensed under the laws of such jurisdiction.
Citigroup Global Markets Inc. is acting as solicitation agent (the “Solicitation Agent”) for the Consent Solicitation. Epiq Corporate Restructuring, LLC is acting as the information and tabulation agent (the “Information and Tabulation Agent”) for the Consent Solicitation.
Requests for the Consent Solicitation Statement may be directed to Epiq Corporate Global Restructuring, LLC at (646) 282-2500 for banks and brokers and at (866) 897-6433 (Toll-Free) or (646) 282-2500 (International) for all others.
