March 2, 2017 — CBS Corporation (CBS) Entercom Communications Corp. (ETM) and CBS Radio Inc. (“CBS Radio”) announced that CBS Radio has established pricing for a seven-year, $500 million senior secured term loan B to be issued in connection with their previously announced merger. The loan will have an interest rate of LIBOR plus 2.75%, with no LIBOR floor, and will be issued at par.

The new term loan will be issued to refinance Entercom’s capital structure, with proceeds used to repay its existing term loan and redeem its preferred stock, as well as pay transaction fees and expenses. CBS Radio’s credit facility is being amended to include the new term loan, which is expected to be funded at the closing of the merger. That transaction is expected to close during the second half of 2017, subject to the approval of Entercom shareholders, certain regulatory approvals, and other customary closing conditions.
