Crown Media Holdings Announces Proposed Offering Of $300,000,000 Senior Notes Due 2019

Crown Media Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:CRWN) announced today that it intends to commence an offering (the “Offering”) in a private placement of $300 million in aggregate principal amount of senior notes due 2019 (the “Notes”). The Offering is expected to be completed by mid-July 2011, subject to market and other conditions. The Notes will be senior unsecured obligations of Crown Media, will be guaranteed by each of Crown Media’s subsidiaries and will bear interest at a fixed rate.

In conjunction with the Offering, Crown Media also intends to enter into new senior secured credit facilities which will be secured by all of the assets of Crown Media and its subsidiaries and will be guaranteed by its subsidiaries (the “Senior Secured Credit Facilities”). The consummation of the Offering is conditioned on Crown Media entering into such Senior Secured Credit Facilities.

A special committee consisting of Crown Media’s independent directors has been reviewing and will make recommendations to the Board of Directors with respect to the fairness of the terms of the Offering and the Senior Secured Credit Facilities.

Crown Media expects that the proceeds from the Offering and the Senior Secured Credit Facilities will be used to extinguish obligations under Crown Media’s existing term credit facilities, redeem its preferred stock and for general corporate purposes.

The Notes will be offered in the United States to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and outside the United States pursuant to Regulation S under the Securities Act. The Notes have not been registered under the Securities Act and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements. This notice is issued pursuant to Rule 135c of the Securities Act, and does not constitute an offer to sell the Notes, nor a solicitation for an offer to purchase the Notes.
