CME Announces The Pricing Of The Offering Of EUR 70 Million 9% Senior Secured Notes Due 2017 By Its Czech Subsidiary CET 21 Spol. S R.o.

HAMILTON, Bermuda, Aug. 13, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Central European Media Enterprises Ltd. ("CME" or the "Company") announced today the pricing of the offering by its wholly owned subsidiary CET 21 spol. s r.o. ("CET 21") of fixed rate senior secured notes in the aggregate principal amount of EUR 70.0 million (approximately US$ 85.8 million). The notes will have the same terms and be of the same series as the 9.0% senior notes due 2017 that CET 21 issued and sold on October 21, 2010. The notes will be sold to investors at a purchase price equal to 108.250% of the principal amount, plus accrued interest from May 1, 2012, will pay interest semi-annually at a rate of 9.0% per year and will mature on November 1, 2017. 

The notes will be senior secured obligations of CET 21 and will be guaranteed by the Company and certain of its subsidiaries. The sale of the notes is expected to close on August 16, 2012, and the net proceeds received by CET 21 from the sale of the notes are expected to be equal to EUR 73.8 million (approximately US$ 90.5 million).

CET 21 intends to use the net proceeds from the offering (i) to fully repay outstanding amounts under its CZK 1.5 billion revolving credit facility agreement, which is expected to be approximately EUR 59.5 million (approximately US$ 73.0 million) and (ii) for general corporate purposes.

The senior notes will be offered only to qualified institutional buyers under Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and to non-U.S. persons in transactions outside the United States under Regulation S under the Securities Act. The senior notes will not be registered under the Securities Act and may not be offered or sold in the U.S. or to U.S. persons absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements. In relation to the United Kingdom, notes may not be offered or sold except in accordance with all applicable requirements of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 ("FSMA") and regulations passed under FSMA, or pursuant to an applicable exemption. In addition, the notes may not be offered in the United Kingdom or any other member state of the European Economic Area except in circumstances which do not require the publication by the Company of a prospectus pursuant to Article 3 of the EU Prospectus Directive (2003/71/EC), as amended.
