As part of the deal, HKBN will issue the private equity firms TPG Capital Management LP and MBK Partners Inc. that own WTT, a combination of its shares and vendor loan notes for WTT shares worth roughly $5.5b.

MBK Partners and TPG would end up owning 11.66% stake each in HKBN, in addition to a non-voting, couponless vendor loan note valued at $970.5m once the deal closes.
