Starz Completes Issuance Of $500 Million Of New Senior Notes

Starz, LLC, along with a subsidiary Co-Issuer, (collectively the “Co-Issuers”) announced today the completion of the previously announced offering of $500 million principal amount of new 5% Senior Notes due 2019 at par (the "Notes"). The Notes will be senior obligations of the Co-Issuers and will rank pari passu in right of payment with all of the existing and future senior debt of the Co-Issuers. The net proceeds will be used for the repayment of indebtedness under Starz’ existing senior secured credit facility. Starz, LLC is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Liberty Media Corporation (Nasdaq: LMCA, LMCB).

The Notes were offered pursuant to an exemption under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act") only to Qualified Institutional Buyers as permitted under Rule 144A of the Securities Act, or outside the United States to certain persons in reliance on Regulation S under the Securities Act. The Notes have not been registered under the Securities Act or the securities laws of any other jurisdiction and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act.

In connection with the offering of the Notes, Starz has agreed, subject to certain conditions, to file a registration statement relating to a registered offer to exchange the Notes for new registered notes having substantially identical terms as the Notes.

This press release is for informational purposes only and shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the Notes, nor shall there be any sales of Notes in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction.
