LIN Media LLC Announces Completion Of Merger With LIN TV Corp.

Stocks in this article: TVL

LIN Media LLC (“LIN Media” or the “Company”) today announced that it has completed its merger with LIN TV Corp. (“LIN TV”). This closing successfully concludes the Company’s plans to resolve the NBC JV guarantee and tax overhangs that have in recent years limited its strategic options.

LIN Media, as the surviving company in the merger, will begin trading on the New York Stock Exchange on July 31, 2013 under the ticker symbol “LIN” . Shares of LIN TV common stock were converted into common shares of LIN Media on a one-for-one basis.

As a result of the capital losses generated from this transaction, the Company expects to realize cash income tax savings of approximately $115 million and expects to settle the remaining estimated income tax liability associated with the NBC JV sale transaction (announced on February 12, 2013) of approximately $48 million in cash later this year.
