Clear Channel Communications, Inc. Announces Proposed Private Offering Of Senior Notes

Stocks in this article: CCO

Clear Channel Communications, Inc. (“CCU”) announced today that CCU Escrow Corporation, a newly formed Texas corporation (the “Escrow Issuer”), intends to offer, subject to market and other customary conditions, $400,000,000 in aggregate principal amount of senior notes due 2018 (the “Notes”) in a private offering that is exempt from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”).

At the closing of the offering of Notes, the Escrow Issuer, which was created solely to issue the Notes, will deposit the gross proceeds of the offering (and CCU will deposit an amount sufficient to pay accrued interest on the Notes through the term of the escrow) into a segregated escrow account until the date on which certain escrow release conditions are satisfied, including the substantially concurrent (1) redemption of $408.6 million aggregate principal amount of CCU’s 5.5% senior notes due 2014 (the “2014 legacy notes”) and (2) assumption of the Escrow Issuer’s obligations under the Notes by CCU (the “Assumption”), as described below.

No later than 30 days after the closing of the offering of Notes, CCU intends to issue a 30-day irrevocable notice to redeem $408.6 million aggregate principal amount of its 2014 legacy notes. At the end of the 30-day period, the escrowed funds will be released and, together with cash on hand from CCU, used to redeem the 2014 legacy notes called for redemption, to pay accrued and unpaid interest to, but not including, the date of redemption, and to pay the fees and expenses related to this offering and the redemption of the 2014 legacy notes.

Substantially simultaneously with the consummation of the redemption of the 2014 legacy notes, the Escrow Issuer intends to merge with and into CCU, with CCU continuing as the surviving corporation. At the time of, and as a result of the consummation of the merger, CCU will assume all of the obligations of the Escrow Issuer under the Notes in the Assumption.
