Stocks in this article: CETV

HAMILTON, Bermuda, Feb. 28, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Central European Media Enterprises Ltd. (" CME") (Nasdaq:CETV) (Prague Stock Exchange:CETV) announced today that, to finance the redemption of its EUR 272,972,000 aggregate principal amount of 11.625% senior notes due 2016 (the " 2016 Notes") and to provide additional liquidity, CME has entered into agreements with Time Warner Inc. and one of its affiliates (together, " Time Warner") and filed a rights offering registration statement. The rights offering and related transactions to be undertaken pursuant to these agreements are subject to certain conditions described below.

In connection with the rights offering, CME shareholders holding Class A Common Stock and Preferred Stock (allocated on an as-converted basis) will receive non-transferrable rights to purchase in the aggregate 3,391,403 units at a subscription price of $100.00 per unit. Shareholders will receive one right per 62.5 shares of Class A Common Stock held as of a record date to be determined at a later date and subsequently announced. Only shareholders holding 62.5 or more shares of Class A Common Stock on the record date will satisfy the minimum subscription threshold and be eligible to participate in the rights offering. Each unit will consist of a 15.0% Senior Secured Note due 2017 in the original principal amount of $100.00 (the " New Notes") and 21.167376 unit warrants. Interest on the New Notes will be paid in arrears (a) on each interest payment date (June 1 and December 1 of each year) on or prior to November 15, 2015 by adding the amount of such interest to the principal balance of the New Notes and (b) on each interest payment date thereafter, at the option of CME, either (i) entirely in cash or (ii) by increasing the principal amount of the New Notes. Each unit warrant will entitle the warrant holder to purchase one share of CME's Class A Common Stock at an exercise price of $1.00 per share.

Time Warner has agreed to purchase all units in the rights offering not subscribed for by other shareholders. In addition, Time Warner will purchase 576,968 units from CME in a separate private placement transaction to close contemporaneously with the rights offering. In connection with the foregoing, CME will issue a warrant to Time Warner to purchase 30 million shares of Class A Common Stock at an exercise price of $1.00 per share.
