- Central European Media Enterprises (CETV +0.7%) has wrapped an extensive refinancing that it announced in February.
- Along with the move, all the company's outstanding senior debt is euro-denominated.
- It's taken on a new €469M senior unsecured term credit facility guaranteed by Time Warner, and used that to refinance $503M of its 15% senior notes due 2017, as well as a $38M term loan between it and Time Warner that was restated in November 2014.
- A €251M term loan got its maturity date extended by a year, so the company's nearest maturity is November 2018. And an existing $115M revolver has its maturity extended to 2021 from 2017.
- “The cost on approximately half of our debt is immediately reduced by 450 basis points as a result of this transaction, with the potential to automatically improve on that as our net leverage ratio declines further," said co-CEOs Michael Del Nin and Christoph Mainusch in a statement.
