Important Factors Before Lumen's (LUMN) Q4 Earnings Release(Part-2) 

Lumen has negotiated an updated and restated transaction support agreement ("TSA") with a group of creditors who now represent about $12.5 billion of the firm and its subsidiaries' debt on January 25, 2024. It represents about 70% of Lumen and Level 3 debt due until 2027.

The modified TSA has more creditors than the Oct. 31, 2023 agreement. The TSA will prolong debt maturities to 2029+. New long-term debt and a $1 billion revolving credit facility will finance the firm for $1.325 billion. Lumen anticipates to close TSA transactions in the first quarter of 2024, pending closing conditions.
