Millicom announces successful completion of consent solicitation for its $500,000,000 6.000% Senior Notes due 2025

Luxembourg, April 4, 2019 –Millicom International Cellular S.A. ("Millicom") today announces that it has received the requisite consents from the holders of its $500,000,000 6.000% Senior Notes due 2025 (ISIN US600814AM98; CUSIP 600814AM9 and ISIN XS1204091588) (the "Notes") to amend certain provisions of the indenture governing the Notes (the “Indenture”). The consent solicitation expired at 5:00 pm New York time on April 3, 2019 (the “Expiration Time”).

Millicom has been advised by D.F. King, the information and tabulation agent for the consent solicitation, that, at the Expiration Time, consents were validly delivered and not validly revoked in respect of more than a majority in aggregate principal amount of the Notes. As a result, Millicom and Citibank, N.A., London Branch, as the trustee under the Indenture, will enter into a supplemental indenture implementing the amendments. In accordance with the consent solicitation statement, on or about April 8, 2019, Millicom will make a cash payment equal to $2.50 per $1,000 principal amount of the Notes to each holder of the Notes that validly delivered and did not revoke its consent prior to the Expiration Time.

Millicom sought consents from the holders of the Notes primarily to generally conform certain terms in the Indenture to those in the indentures governing all of Millicom’s other outstanding notes, including Millicom’s $750,000,000 6.250% Senior Notes due 2029, $500,000,000 5.125% Senior Notes due 2028 and $500,000,000 6.625% Senior Notes due 2026. The proposed amendments, upon becoming effective, will reduce administrative complexity and simplify compliance and governance by making Millicom’s obligations across the indentures more uniform, thus providing Millicom with similar operational and financial flexibility as provided for in the indentures for all of its other outstanding notes.

This press release will also be posted on the website of the Luxembourg Stock Exchange.

The information and tabulation agent for the consent solicitation is D.F. King. Any questions or requests for assistance may be directed to D.F. King, at +1 212 269 5550 (Banks and Brokers) or +1 877 732 3621 (All Others - US toll free) or +44 20 7920 9700, by e-mail to [email protected], consent website:
