TORONTO, Feb. 17 /CNW/ - Cinram International Income Fund (together with its subsidiaries where applicable, "Cinram" or the "Fund") announced today that it has achieved 100% lender support for its previously announced proposed refinancing and recapitalization transaction (the "Refinancing and Recapitalization").

"This refinancing and recapitalization transaction is a significant and positive development for Cinram and its stakeholders, and we are delighted by and appreciative of the unanimous support of our lenders," commented John Bell, Cinram's Chief Financial Officer.
