PR Newswire



SANTA MONICA, Calif., May 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Entravision Communications Corporation , a diversified Spanish-language media company, today announced it has entered into a new secured bank credit facility (the "New Facility"), consisting of a $30 million revolving credit facility and a $20 million term loan, and a $375 million delayed-draw term loan which may be drawn on a date of the company's choosing between August 1, 2013 and August 15, 2013. The New Facility replaces the company's existing $30 million revolving credit facility and $20 million term loan facility.

Entravision currently anticipates that it will use proceeds from the $375 million delayed-draw term loan to (i) repay in full the $20 million term loan under the New Facility, (ii) redeem in full all of the Company's 8.75% Senior Notes due 2017, and (iii) pay fees and expenses in connection the New Facility. The Company intends to use any future borrowings under the new revolving credit facility to, among other things, fund its working capital needs and other general corporate purposes.

"As a result of our new credit facility, we will substantially improve our capital structure, providing us with additional financial flexibility as we continue to execute our strategic plan to further strengthen our diversified media platform and fully capitalize on the growth of the nation's Latino population," said Walter F. Ulloa, Entravision's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

Entravision's borrowings under the New Facility will bear interest on the outstanding principal amount from the date when made at a rate per annum equal to either: (i) the Base Rate (as defined in the New Facility) plus the Applicable Margin (as defined in the New Facility); or (ii) LIBOR (as defined in the New Facility) plus the Applicable Margin (provided, however, that in no event shall LIBOR with respect to the new delayed-draw term loan be less than 1.00% per annum). As defined in the New Facility, "Applicable Margin" means:

(a) with respect to the new term loans (i) if a Base Rate loan, one and one half percent (1.50%) per annum and (ii) if a LIBOR rate loan, two and one half percent (2.50%) per annum; and

(b) with respect to loans under the new revolving credit facility:

(i) for the period commencing on the closing date through the last day of the calendar month during which financial statements for the fiscal quarter ending June 30, 2013 are delivered: (A) if a Base Rate loan, one and one half percent (1.50%) per annum and (B) if a LIBOR rate loan, two and one half percent (2.50%) per annum; and

(ii) thereafter, the Applicable Margin for loans under the new revolving credit facility shall equal the applicable LIBOR margin or Base Rate margin in effect from time to time determined as set forth below based upon the applicable First Lien Net Leverage Ratio (as defined under the New Facility) then in effect pursuant to the appropriate column under the table below:
