Xspedius Communications LLC, a private telecommunications carrier targeting businesses in the Southeast, has arranged $55 million in senior secured debt financing.
Missouri-based Xspedius announced using the proceeds of the loan to repay existing subordinated debt and to support general purposes, including potential acquisitions. The loan arranged by Jefferies & Company Inc. matures in March 2010.
