Zayo Group, LLC Announces Proposed Senior Notes Offering and Term Loan Amendment

Zayo Group, LLC (“Zayo”), a direct subsidiary of Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ZAYO) and global provider of Communications Infrastructure services, announced today that it intends to offer, subject to market and other conditions, $800 million of Senior Notes (the “Senior Notes”).

On or before the closing date of the Acquisition (defined below), Zayo expects to enter into an amendment (the “Term Loan Amendment”) to its credit agreement governing its senior secured term loan facility (the “Term Loan Facility”), under which Zayo intends to enter into a new seven-year $2.5 billion incremental term loan facility (the “Incremental Term Loan”), of which $1.85 billion will be used to repay all outstanding indebtedness under the Term Loan Facility. However, the terms of the Term Loan Amendment are not yet final and are subject to change. We can give no assurance regarding the final terms of the Term Loan Amendment or that the Term Loan Amendment will be completed.

Zayo intends to use the net proceeds from the Senior Notes offering, together with the net proceeds from the remaining $650 million of the Incremental Term Loan, to fund the consideration to be paid in connection with Zayo’s acquisition of Electric Lightwave Parent, Inc. (the “Acquisition”). Any excess net proceeds will be used for general corporate purposes, which may include repayment of other indebtedness, acquisitions, working capital and capital expenditures.

The Senior Notes have not been registered under the Securities Act and are being offered and sold in the United States only to qualified institutional buyers in reliance on Rule 144A under the Securities Act and to certain non-U.S. persons in transactions outside the United States in reliance on Regulation S under the Securities Act. Prospective purchasers that are qualified institutional buyers are hereby notified that the sellers of the Senior Notes may be relying on the exemption from the provisions of Section 5 of the Securities Act provided by Rule 144A.
