Consolidated Communications Announces Receipt of “Take Private” Proposal from Searchlight Capital and British Columbia Investment Management
Apr 16, 2023

MATTOON, Ill.--()--Consolidated Communications (Nasdaq: CNSL) (“Consolidated” or the “Company”) today announced that its board of directors (the “Board”) received a non-binding proposal letter, dated April 12, 2023, from Searchlight Capital Partners, L.P. (together with its affiliated investment funds, “Searchlight”) and British Columbia Investment Management Corporation (“BCI” and together with Searchlight, the “Searchlight Group”), to acquire all of the outstanding common shares of Consolidated not already owned by the Searchlight Group for cash consideration of $4.00 per share.

Searchlight owns 34.3% of the Company’s outstanding common shares, based on their most recent Schedule 13D filing dated April 12, 2023.

The proposal letter states that any potential transaction must be subject to the approval and recommendation by a special committee of independent and disinterested directors, advised by independent legal and financial advisors. The proposal letter also indicates that any potential transaction would be subject to a non-waivable condition requiring the approval of the holders of a majority of the shares of Common Stock that are not owned by the Searchlight Group.

The Board intends to establish a special committee consisting of independent directors of the Board to review and consider the proposal, as well as any other alternative proposals or other strategic alternatives that may be available to the Company.

Consolidated cautions its shareholders and others considering trading in Consolidated’s securities that Consolidated has only recently received the proposal letter and has not had an opportunity to carefully review and evaluate the proposal or make any decision with respect to Consolidated’s response to the proposal. The proposal constitutes only an indication of interest by the Searchlight Group and does not constitute a binding commitment with respect to the proposed transaction or any other transaction. No agreement, arrangement or understanding between Consolidated and the Searchlight Group relating to any proposed transaction will be created unless definitive documentation is executed and delivered by the appropriate parties.

Consolidated does not undertake any obligation to provide any updates with respect to this or any other transaction, or to provide any additional disclosures to reflect subsequent events, new information or future circumstances, except as required under applicable law.
