A copy of the press release announcing the tender offer is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.2 and is incorporated by reference herein.
In addition, on November 2, 2012, the Company announced that Clear Channel Worldwide issued a press release pursuant to Rule 135c promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), announcing that Clear Channel Worldwide will offer, subject to market and customary conditions, $735,750,000 aggregate principal amount of Series A Senior Notes due 2022 (the “Series A Notes”) and $1,989,250,000 aggregate principal amount of Series B Notes due 2022 (the “Series B Notes” and, together with the Series A Notes, the “Notes”) in a private offering that is exempt from registration under the Securities Act.
Clear Channel Worldwide intends to use the net proceeds from the offering, together with cash on hand, to pay the consideration in the Tender Offer, and to pay related fees and expenses.
