Nexstar Broadcasting Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: NXST) (the “Company”) announced today that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Nexstar Broadcasting, Inc. (“Nexstar Broadcasting”), intends to offer, subject to market and other customary conditions, up to $275.0 million in aggregate principal amount of its 6.875% senior notes due 2020 (the “notes”) in a private offering. The notes will have the same terms as, and are expected to be treated as a single class with, Nexstar Broadcasting’s $250.0 million in aggregate principal amount of 6.875% senior notes due 2020 issued on November 9, 2012. The notes will be senior unsecured obligations of Nexstar Broadcasting and will be guaranteed by the Company and Mission Broadcasting, Inc. (“Mission”).
Nexstar Broadcasting intends to use the net proceeds from the proposed offering, together with the proceeds from a proposed incremental amendment to its and Mission’s existing senior secured credit facilities and cash on hand, to repurchase any and all of its and Mission’s outstanding 8.875% Senior Secured Second Lien Notes due 2017, to fund its and Mission’s proposed acquisition of five television stations in four markets from Citadel Communications, L.P. and Stainless Broadcasting, L.P., to pay related fees and expenses and for general corporate purposes.
The notes and related guarantees will be offered in the United States only to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and outside the United States, only to non-U.S. investors pursuant to Regulation S under the Securities Act. The notes and the related guarantees 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 registration requirements.
This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the notes or any other securities and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any jurisdiction in which, or to any person to whom, such an offer, solicitation or sale is unlawful. Any offers of the notes will be made only by means of a private offering memorandum.
