November 14, 2008
CEMEX, S.A.B. de C.V. (NYSE: CX) announces that it has selected BBVA, Citi, HSBC, RBS and Banco Santander, S.A. to lead a global effort to i) negotiate joint bilateral facilities for CEMEX, S.A.B. de C.V. and CEMEX España S.A. that will replace existing bilateral facilities with a group of banks, and ii) amend certain existing syndicated loan facilities.
Completion of these transactions, including the amendments, may, depending on the facility, require majority consent from the lenders under the corresponding facility. If consents are obtained, CEMEX would achieve greater financial flexibility by lengthening the maturity of the bilateral and syndicated facilities.
