Hong Kong’s Asia Broadcast Satellite has refinanced its export credit agency-backed debt to bring the satellite operator’s blended cost of capital down to the high single digits.The recapitalisation, thought to involve senior positions for Goldman Sachs, HSBC and subordinated debt from a Singaporean firm, also gives the private equity-owned company more flexibility to start funding ABS-8, which could be its third all-electric satellite.
