Telemig Celular S.A. and Amazonia Celular S.A. Announce Commencement of Consent Solicitation

MINAS GERAIS, Brazil, March 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Telemig Celular S.A. ("Telemig") and Amazonia Celular S.A. ("Amazonia") announced today that they have commenced a solicitation of consents (the "Consent Solicitation") from holders of outstanding 8.75% Telemig Notes due 2009 (the "Telemig Notes") and 8.75% Amazonia Notes due 2009 (the "Amazonia Notes" and, together with the Telemig Notes, the "Notes"). The purpose of the Consent Solicitation is to amend certain provisions of the indenture governing the Notes (the "Indenture") to address the technical default under financial ratios caused by Amazonia's recording of provisions with regard to contingent liabilities in connection with Imposto de Circulacao de Mercadorias e Servicos taxes ("ICMS Provisions") that are currently the subject of litigation with a few of the Brazilian states (the "Proposed Amendments"). Each holder who consents to the Proposed Amendments will also be waiving (the "Proposed Waivers") certain past defaults and events of default under the Indenture associated with the ICMS Provisions.

Upon fulfillment of the conditions of the Consent Solicitation, Telemig and Amazonia will provide a consent payment (the "Consent Payment") for each consent properly delivered (and not revoked) prior to the expiration of the Consent Solicitation. The Consent Payment will be US$2.50 in cash for each US$1,000 principal amount of Notes. The Consent Solicitation will expire at 5 p.m., New York City time, on April 16, 2007, unless extended. The approval of the Proposed Amendments and Proposed Waivers requires the written consent of holders of not less than a majority in aggregate principal amount of each of the Telemig Notes and the Amazonia Notes at the time outstanding, voting separately. If the required consents are not received by the expiration date, Telemig and Amazonia may, in their sole discretion, terminate or extend the Consent Solicitation.

Telemig and Amazonia have engaged Merrill Lynch & Co. to act as solicitation agent in connection with the Consent Solicitation. Questions regarding the Consent Solicitation should be directed to Merrill Lynch & Co., Liability Management Group, at (888) ML4-TNDR (US toll-free) or (212) 449- 4914. Requests for documentation in connection with the Consent Solicitation may be directed to Global Bondholders Services Corporation, the information agent for the Consent Solicitation, at (866) 873-6300 (US toll-free) or (212) 430-3774.

Telemig is the leading provider of cellular telecommunications services in the State of Minas Gerais in Brazil. Amazonia provides cellular telecommunications services in a region covering the States of Para, Amazonas, Maranhao, Amapa, and Roraima in the north and northeast of Brazil.

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Smart cities have the potential to change our lives at so many levels for citizens: less pollution, reduced parking obstacles, better health, education and more energy savings. Real-time data streaming and the Internet of Things (IoT) possess the power to turn this vision into a reality. However, most organizations today are building their data infrastructure to focus solely on addressing immediate business needs vs. a platform capable of quickly adapting emerging technologies to address future ...
We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer. We are subject to the constraint that the applications be signed and deployed so that they can be run in a trusted environment (i.e., outside of the sandbox). Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...

DX World EXPO, LLC, a Lighthouse Point, Florida-based startup trade show producer and the creator of "DXWorldEXPO® - Digital Transformation Conference & Expo" has announced its executive management team. The team is headed by Levent Selamoglu, who has been named CEO. "Now is the time for a truly global DX event, to bring together the leading minds from the technology world in a conversation about Digital Transformation," he said in making the announcement.
In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Digital Transformation (DX) is not a "one-size-fits all" strategy. Each organization needs to develop its own unique, long-term DX plan.

Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...
