Monday 6 May 2013 | 11:01 CET | News
Central European Media Enterprises announced the pricing of an underwritten public offering of 54.4 million shares of its Class A common stock for USD 2.75 per share. The offering is expected to close on 8 May, subject to customary closing conditions. JP Morgan is acting as the sole book-running manager for the offering. CME has granted the underwriters an option to purchase up to an additional 5.4 million shares if demand warrants. Time Warner Media, CME's largest shareholder, has exercised its preemptive right to purchase 49.9 percent of the shares. Subject to the closing of the offering and approval by CME's shareholders, CME will sell to Time Warner USD 200 million of its Series B Convertible Redeemable Preferred Stock, a new series of its preferred stock, in a private placement. CME intends to apply USD 300 million of the net proceeds from the stock offering to the repurchase or redemption of a portion of its 11.625 percent senior notes due 2016. CME intends to use the remainder of the proceeds for general corporate purposes.
