Ramat-Gan, Israel, March 31, 2016 – B Communications Ltd. (NASDAQ and TASE: BCOM), today completed the private placement of NIS 148 million par value of its Series B Debentures to Israeli institutional investors for an aggregate consideration of approximately NIS 162 million (approximately US $42 million), as was initially reported on March 23, 2016.
The Company received the approval of Midroog Ltd., an Israeli rating company affiliated with Moody’s, that the issuances will not cause a reduction in the Series B Debentures’ Aa3.il rating; and also received the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange approval for the listing of the additional debentures for trade.
The private placement was carried out as an increase to the outstanding Series B Debentures of B Communications, which were first issued in September 2010 and have identical terms. The net proceeds of the private placement will increase the Company’s unrestricted cash. The transaction was conducted as a private placement to “classified”/”institutional” investors (as defined under the exemptions of section 15 of the Securities Law, 5728-1968 and the First Schedule of The Securities Law).
