Lumen Technologies, Inc., a leading global provider of integrated network solutions, has embarked on a significant endeavor aimed at streamlining its operations and facilitating strategic transactions. On March 8, 2024, the company initiated a consent solicitation process to amend specific indentures of the company and its subsidiaries. These amendments are pivotal in paving the way for the seamless execution of transactions outlined in the previously disclosed amended and restated transaction support agreement (TSA).

In conjunction with this initiative, Lumen Technologies is also seeking the cooperation of lenders under its existing term loans to partake in certain transactions pertaining to the company's credit agreements. The company anticipates concluding these TSA transactions by the end of the month, subject to the fulfillment of remaining closing conditions.
