AT&T has confirmed the filing of a registration statement with the US Securities and Exchange Commission for a potential initial public offering of a minority stake in Vrio Corp., the holding company for its satellite television service DirecTV Latin America. The filing confirms earlier reports that AT&T was reviewing its portfolio to reduce its debt, with the company last month announcing that it was exploring an IPO of its Vrio stake. Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan Securities, Citigroup Global Markets and Morgan Stanley have been appointed the joint book-running managers for the IPO.
