NOTE 4. SIGNIFICANT TRANSACTIONS
On March 18, 2013, we announced a quarterly dividend in the amount of $0.05 per share on Class A and Class B common stock. The quarterly dividend of $1.2 million, or $0.05 per share, was funded on March 29, 2013 for payment on April 1, 2013 to all common stockholders of record as of March 25, 2013. Based on the number of shares currently outstanding, we expect to pay total annual dividends of $4.9 million.
On March 14, 2013, we entered into a new senior secured credit facility, consisting of a term loan of $300.0 million (“Term Loan B”) and a revolving credit facility of $25.0 million (“Revolver”). We used the proceeds from the Term Loan B and the Revolver to fund the tender of our 95/8% Senior Secured Second Lien Notes due 2016 (“95/8% Notes”) pursuant to a cash tender offer, and to retire all other outstanding debt and to pay related fees. Upon entry into the credit facility, our existing revolving credit facilities, indebtedness due to First California Bank, and subordinated debt due to related parties were terminated. As a result of these terminations, we recorded a pre-tax loss on the early retirement of debt of $0.8 million associated with unamortized bank fees and closing costs.
On March 14, 2013, we tendered for $212.6 million of the 9 5/8% Notes for $240.3 million, or at a price equal to 110.65% of the face value. We paid $22.7 million for this redemption resulting in a $26.9 million pre-tax loss on the early retirement of debt, which included approximately $0.8 million of unamortized discount and $3.1 million of bond issue costs associated with the 95/8% Notes. We issued a notice of redemption to redeem any 95/8% Notes that remain outstanding after the expiration date of the Tender Offer. As of March 31, 2013, $0.9 million in aggregate principal of the 95/8% Notes remained outstanding. We issued irrevocable instructions to The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A., as trustee for the Notes, to redeem on June 3, 2013 any Notes that remain outstanding after the Expiration Date and deposited funds with the Trustee sufficient to satisfy and discharge Salem’s obligations under the Indenture as of such date. Restricted cash of $1.0 million as of March 31, 2013, includes $0.9 in aggregate principal of the 95/8% Notes outstanding, the redemption price at 103% of the face value and all accrued interest due as of the June 3, 2013 discharge date.
On February 15, 2013, we completed the acquisition of WJKR-FM, Columbus, Ohio, for $4.0 million of cash. We began operating the radio station under a LMA with the owner on November 1, 2012. The accompanying Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations reflect the operating results of this entity as of the LMA date. Effective February 15, 2013, we changed the call letters of this station to WTOH-FM.
February 5, 2013, we completed the acquisition of WMUU-FM,
Greenville, South Carolina, for $5.4 million. The $5.4 million
purchase price consists of $1.0 million cash due upon close of the
transaction, $2.0 million payable in April 2014, and $3.0 million
payable in advertising credits to Bob Jones University, a related
party of the station’s owner. The advertising credits are
payable over ten years resulting in a fair value of $2.4 million.
The $0.6 million discount on the advertising credits was recorded
as a reduction of the fair value and will be amortized to interest
expense over the ten year term. We began operating the radio
station under a LMA with the owner on December 3, 2012. The
accompanying Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations
reflect the operating results of this entity as of the LMA date.
