Stock quotes in this article: NXST

Nexstar Broadcasting Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: NXST) announced today that it has received a payment of $6.7 million comprised of management and incentive fees earned for 2011 as well as a termination payment, related to the sale of Four Points Media Group LLC (“Four Points”), by an affiliate of Cerberus Capital Management, L.P. (“Cerberus”), to Sinclair Broadcast Group, Inc. (“Sinclair”) (Nasdaq: SBGI). Approximately $4.7 million of the payment will be recognized in Nexstar’s fourth quarter ended December 31, 2011 and the balance of approximately $2.0 will be recognized in the first quarter of 2012 (ending March 31). Nexstar will use the payment made by Cerberus under the management services agreement for debt reduction and general corporate purposes. The management services agreement with Four Points terminated effective with the closing of the sale of its stations to Sinclair on January 3, 2012.

Nexstar Broadcasting Group Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, Perry A. Sook commented, “The Four Points transaction is the culmination of our efforts on behalf of Cerberus to improve the market position and operating efficiencies of these stations and create value for the group. We are confident that under Sinclair’s management, the markets, viewers and advertisers served by these stations will benefit from a continued focus on quality programming and community service. We believe the positive outcome from this transaction for Cerberus, Four Points and Sinclair positions us well to enter into other management services agreements.”
