Sinclair Prices Private Offering of Senior Unsecured Notes of Sinclair Television Group
Sinclair Broadcast Group, Inc. ("Sinclair" or the "Company") (Nasdaq: SBGI) announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Sinclair Television Group, Inc. ("STG"), has priced its previously announced private offering of Senior Unsecured Notes due 2022 (the "Notes"). The Notes were priced at 100% of their par value and will bear interest at a rate of 6.125% per annum payable semi-annually on April 1 and October 1, commencing on April 1, 2013.
STG intends to use the net proceeds from the offering to fund the acquisition of Newport Television and other pending acquisitions, to pay down outstanding indebtedness under its revolving credit facility, and for general corporate purposes, which may include a distribution to Sinclair to be paid to Sinclair's shareholders in the form of a special dividend. The issuance of the Notes is not contingent upon the consummation of the acquisitions. In the event that the acquisitions are not completed, then we expect to use the net proceeds from this offering to reduce outstanding indebtedness and for general corporate purposes.
