ATLANTA, April 03, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cumulus Media Inc. (NASDAQ: CMLS) (the “Company” or “Cumulus”) today announced that its subsidiary, Cumulus Media New Holdings Inc. (the “Issuer”), has further extended the Expiration Time in its previously-announced Exchange Offer and Consent Solicitation (the “Exchange Offer and Consent Solicitation”), in which the Issuer offered to exchange any and all of the Issuer’s outstanding 6.750% Senior Secured First-Lien Notes due 2026 (the “Old Notes”) for new 8.750% Senior Secured First-Lien Notes due 2029 (“New Notes”), to be issued by the Issuer, upon the terms of and subject to the conditions set forth in the confidential offering memorandum and consent solicitation statement dated February 27, 2024 (the “Offering Memorandum”). Capitalized terms used but not defined in this press release have the respective meanings ascribed to such terms in the Offering Memorandum.

The Issuer is further extending the previously announced New Expiration Time, which was 5:00 p.m., New York City Time, on April 2, 2024, to 5:00 p.m., New York City Time, on April 9, 2024 (the "Further Extended Expiration Time"). The deadline to validly withdraw tenders of the Old Notes was not extended and expired at 5:00 p.m., New York City Time, on March 11, 2024. The Exchange Offer and Consent Solicitation will expire at the Further Extended Expiration Time, unless extended or terminated. The Further Extended Expiration Time is subject to earlier termination, withdrawal or extension by the Issuer in its sole and absolute discretion. All other terms of the tender offer remain unchanged.

The previously announced Early Tender Time lapsed at 5:00 p.m., New York City Time, on March 18, 2024. As such, holders that validly tender and do not validly withdraw their Old Notes prior to the Further Extended Expiration Time are only eligible to receive $770.00 principal amount of New Notes. The Issuer will pay accrued and unpaid interest to, but excluding, the Settlement Date, which is as soon as practicable after the Further Extended Expiration Time, in cash, to holders of Old Notes accepted for exchange pursuant to the Exchange Offer and Consent Solicitation.

As of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on April 2, 2024, approximately $15 million aggregate principal amount of the Old Notes had been validly tendered pursuant to the Exchange Offer and Consent Solicitation and not withdrawn.

Only holders who have duly completed and submitted an eligibility letter (which may be found at www.dfking.com/cumulus) will be authorized to receive the Offering Memorandum and related letter of transmittal (the “Exchange Offer Documents”) and participate in the Exchange Offer and Consent Solicitation. The eligibility letters will include certifications that the holder is either (1) a “qualified institutional buyer” as defined in Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933 (the “Securities Act”) or (2) a non-“U.S. person” (as defined in Rule 902 under the Securities Act) located outside of the United States who is (i) not acting for the account or benefit of a U.S. person, (ii) a “non-U.S. qualified offeree” (as defined in the Exchange Offer Documents), and (iii) not a resident in Canada.
