August 7, 2008

UKRAINE (August 7, 2008) — Bracewell & Giuliani LLP served as counsel to the private equity group SigmaBleyzer in connection with the merger of Ukrainian cable businesses, including Volia Cable, that closed on July 28 in Cyprus. Two of SigmaBleyzer’s funds partially own various Ukrainian cable operations held through Aquorn Holding Limited Oisiw Limited.

The two companies have been merged to form Ukraine's pre-eminent cable provider with operations in more than 15 of Ukraine's largest cities. The combined company will provide television service as well as high-speed Internet access to more than 2.5 million Ukrainian households. The deal was approved by the Anti-monopoly Committee of Ukraine.

The Bracewell team was led by NY/London partner Martin Hunt and included Washington associate Todd G. Amdor.
