Level 3 Communications Inc. to Sell $600 Million in Corporate Debt Notes it Plans to Use to Refinance Some TW Telecom Inc. Debt

Level 3 Communications Inc. will sell $600 million in corporate debt notes it plans to use to refinance some TW Telecom Inc. debt after the proposed $7.3 billion deal to combine the companies is completed. The new, fixed-rate senior notes will be sold, with proceeds held in escrow until the TW Telecom transaction is completed. The notes, which are scheduled to mature in 2022, will be sold via private offer to qualified institutional buyers. The gross proceeds from the offering will reduce the outstanding bridge loan commitment Level 3 has in place with certain financial institutions in connection with refinancing certain TW Telecom Inc. indebtedness. If the proceeds cannot be used to refinance TW Telecom debt before June 15, 2015, Level 3 will use the proceeds in escrow to redeem the new debt notes. The overall deal's value reaches $7.3 billion including TW Telecom's $1.6 billion in corporate debt. The transaction still needs to clear regulatory and shareholder approval. Level 3 announced the expanded executive team that the combined company will have.
