Clear Channel Communications, Inc. Seeking Extensions Of Existing Term Loans As Part Of Its Continuing Capital Structure Improvement Efforts
San Antonio, May 8, 2013. Clear Channel Communications, Inc. (“CCU”) announced today that it is seeking, subject to market and customary conditions, to extend $1.5 billion in aggregate principal amount of outstanding term loans B and C due 2016 until 2018. The new extended term loans will have the same security and guarantee package as the outstanding term loans B and C.
These efforts are part of the Company’s continuing efforts to optimize its overall capital structure. It will continue to explore a diverse array of other alternatives including, but not limited to, transactions which would extend maturities of its other debt, whether through a debt-for-debt ex-change or other financing transaction. Should CCU pursue any such transaction, the terms, tim-ing and structure of any transaction will depend on market conditions, and the amounts involved may be material. There can be no assurance that any transaction will ultimately be pursued or that any transaction, if pursued, will be successful.
