Cequel Communications, LLC, which does business as Suddenlink Communications, announced Nov. 29 that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire NPG Cable, Inc., and its subsidiaries from News_Press & Gazette Co., for approximately $350 million, subject to customary working-capital closing adjustments.

Suddenlink expects to close the acquisition in the first quarter of 2011 and currently has sufficient existing liquidity sources to fund the transaction. NPG's cable systems serve approximately 83,000 customers, representing approximately 210,000 revenue generating units or RGUs, with operations in

St. Joseph, Mo.; Mammoth Lakes, Calif.; and several, clustered Arizona communities, including Flagstaff and Sedona, Parker, Lake Havasu City and Kingman.

"We're excited about the opportunity to acquire NPG and welcome its employees and customers to the Suddenlink family," said Jerry Kent, Suddenlink's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "This acquisition is a solid fit with our existing operations and we have a proven track record of serving similar communities. We have great respect for NPG and its owners, the Bradley family, and look forward to working with them on the transition."

Suddenlink has operations in Maryville, Mo., and Bishop, Calif., which are proximate to NPG's cable systems in St. Joseph and Mammoth Lakes, respectively. Suddenlink officials said there is an opportunity to interconnect those properties after the acquisition closes.

"The foundation of our success at NPG Cable for the last 45 years has been our family culture, where employees approach their daily work and make decisions as if they own the company," said Brian Bradley, NPG's Chief Administrative Officer. "We are thrilled that Suddenlink, which has a great reputation, shares a similar culture." BC Daniels is acting as the exclusive financial advisor to NPG in this transaction.
