Mexico glass maker Vitro guarantees debt with stock

Mexican glass maker Vitro said on Monday it was putting up shares in its Empresas Comegua unit to guarantee a private debt issue for its Vitro Envases Norteamerica unit.

Monterrey-based Vitro said a meeting of shareholders agreed to put up the 49.7 percent stake in Empresas Comegua to HSBC Bank USA as collateral for the $170 million debt issue from July.

Vitro said in a statement shareholders had agreed to surrender the shares if the debt is not honored.

The issue launched in July will be used to pay off other debt.
