Mediacom Communications Corporation Completes Redemption of 5½% Notes Due 2021
Marks retirement of Company’s entire remaining bond debt
MEDIACOM PARK, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mediacom Broadband LLC and Mediacom Broadband Corporation, wholly-owned subsidiaries of Mediacom Communications Corporation, announced that they have completed today the redemption of the entire balance of their $50 million of outstanding principal amount of 5½% Senior Notes due 2021.
“I am proud to announce the repayment of Mediacom’s last remaining bonds,” stated Rocco B. Commisso, Mediacom’s founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Reaching this milestone is a testament to the investment grade quality of Mediacom’s financial position, highlighted by a total debt leverage ratio well below 3x and historically low average borrowing costs of 3.25%. Naturally, none of this would be possible without the hard work and dedication of Mediacom’s 4,500 employees, who have consistently produced excellent results, evidenced by the unique accomplishment of 91 consecutive quarters of year-over-year revenue growth.”
“I would like to extend my sincere appreciation to our long-term bondholders for their support and trust over my 33 years of raising debt capital in the ‘non-investment grade’ markets,” continued Mr. Commisso. “I am gratified to have returned the favor by delivering an unblemished credit performance over the decades. Equally important, our banks and institutional term loan investors under the Company’s existing credit facilities continue to benefit from solid asset coverage, ample levels of liquidity and Mediacom’s robust free cash flow generation.”
