Liberty Media Corporation Announces Pricing Of $900 Million Of Cash Convertible Senior Notes Due 2023

Liberty Media Corporation ("Liberty Media") (Nasdaq: LMCA, LMCB) announced the pricing on October 10, 2013 of a private offering of $900 million aggregate principal amount of its 1.375% Cash Convertible Senior Notes due 2023. In connection with the offering of the notes, Liberty Media has entered into privately negotiated cash convertible note hedge and warrant transactions with counterparties including certain of the initial purchasers (and/or their respective affiliates). Liberty Media expects to use the net proceeds from the notes offering, together with the proceeds from the sale of the warrants, to fund the cash convertible note hedge transactions and to pay down a portion of its outstanding margin loans, with the remaining net proceeds expected to be used for general corporate purposes.

Liberty Media has granted to the initial purchasers an option to purchase additional notes with an aggregate principal amount of up to $100 million. The notes will mature on October 15, 2023 and will be convertible, under certain circumstances, into cash based on the trading prices of the underlying shares of Liberty Media’s Series A common stock. All conversions of the notes will be settled solely in cash, and not through the delivery of any securities.

The offering of the convertible notes is expected to close on October 17, 2013, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.

Citigroup Global Markets Inc., Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC, J.P. Morgan Securities LLC, Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated, Barclays Capital Inc., BNP Paribas Securities Corp., Credit Agricole Securities (USA) Inc., Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC, Deutsche Bank Securities Inc., RBC Capital Markets, LLC, RBS Securities Inc. and Wells Fargo Securities, LLC are acting as joint book-running managers for the offering.

The notes have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), or any state securities laws and, unless so registered, may not be offered or sold in the United States except pursuant to an exemption from, or in a transaction not subject to, the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws. The notes are being offered by means of an offering memorandum and sold solely to "Qualified Institutional Buyers" pursuant to, and as that term is defined in, Rule 144A of the Securities Act.
