Cincinnati Bell Amends and Extends Revolving Credit Facility

06/26/09

CINCINNATI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun. 26, 2009-- Cincinnati Bell Inc. (NYSE:CBB) today announced that it has amended and extended its revolving credit facility through August 2012. The amended revolving credit facility provides $210 million of funding capacity, which the company will continue to use to fund seasonal working capital requirements and other general corporate purposes as needed.

“Given current economic uncertainties, we are pleased with the favorable response we received from our banking partners which enabled us to refinance our debt prior to its 2010 maturity and increase the size of the facility that we were originally contemplating,” said Gary Wojtaszek, chief financial officer. “The three-year extension of our revolver through August 2012 further strengthens the company’s balance sheet and provides a high level of liquidity for our operations.”

Prior to this amendment, the company’s revolving credit facility provided $250 million of funding capacity and was set to expire in February 2010.
