Clear Channel Outdoor Declares Special Cash Dividend

In accordance with the terms of the Stipulation of Settlement, dated July 8, 2013, among Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) (NYSE:CCO), a special litigation committee consisting of certain independent directors of the Company, Clear Channel Communications, Inc. (“CCU”), the Company’s indirect parent company, and the other parties thereto, the Company announced today (i) that it notified CCU of its intent to make a demand (the “Demand”) for repayment on November 8, 2013 of $200,000,000 outstanding under the Revolving Promissory Note, dated as of November 10, 2005, between CCU, as maker, and the Company, as payee (as amended by the first amendment dated as of December 23, 2009, the “Due from CCU Note”), and (ii) that its board of directors declared a special cash dividend payable in cash on November 8, 2013 to Class A and Class B stockholders of record at the closing of business on November 5, 2013, in an aggregate amount equal to $200,000,000 (or approximately $0.56 per share, based on shares outstanding at the close of business on September 30, 2013), conditioned only on CCU satisfying the Demand. As the indirect parent of the Company, CCU will be entitled to approximately 88% of the proceeds from the dividend through its wholly-owned subsidiaries. The remaining approximately 12% of the proceeds from the dividend, or approximately $24 million, will be paid to the public stockholders of the Company. Following satisfaction of the Demand, the balance outstanding under the Due from CCU Note will be reduced by $200,000,000. As of September 30, 2013, the outstanding balance of the Due from CCU Note was $944,628,469.
