GE Capital Markets served as lead left bookrunner on the transaction, which closed November 30, 2010.

The facility was structured as a $40MM revolver and $190MM term loan, with a portion used by Lightower in the acquisition of Lexent Metro Connect, a leading provider of custom-built dark fiber networks.

“GE Capital understands the dynamics of the communications sector in general and the metro fiber space in particular,” said Rob Shanahan, President and CEO of Lightower Fiber Networks. “As a long-standing customer, we also appreciate their capital markets expertise in the middle market and the commitment GE Capital has provided during all market cycles.”

Lightower Fiber Networks, which is backed by M/C Venture Partners, Pamlico Capital, and Ridgemont Equity Partners, offers data transport and alternative access, with a network that encompasses 5,500-plus fiber route miles with access to over 2,100 buildings.

GE Capital has been Administrative Agent to Lightower since the initial acquisition of Lightower by MC Venture Partners and Pamlico Capital in August 2007.

“This is an industry clearly poised for long-term growth and Lightower’s position in the industry will only grow stronger,” said Mark Bernier, Managing Director and Communications Team Leader. “Our team recognizes the underlying value proposition for high-capacity bandwidth utilizing end-to-end fiber connectivity and our investment highlights our commitment to both Lightower and the overall industry.”
