Private Securities Litigation Reform Act Safe Harbor Statement

In addition to historical information, this report contains statements by us with regard to our expectations as to financial results and other aspects of our business that involve risks and uncertainties and may constitute forward- looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

Forward-looking statements are presented for illustrative purposes only and reflect our current expectations concerning future results and events. All statements other than statements of historical fact are “forward-looking statements” for purposes of federal and state securities laws, including, without limitation, any projections of earnings, revenues or other financial items; any statements of the plans, strategies and objectives of management for future operations; any statements concerning proposed new services or developments; any statements regarding future economic conditions or performance; any statements of belief; and any statements of assumptions underlying any of the foregoing.

You can identify forward-looking statements by our use of words such as “anticipates,” “believes,” “continues,” “expects,” “intends,” “likely,” “may,” “opportunity,” “plans,” “potential,” “project,” “will,” “could,” “would,” “should,” “seeks,” “estimates,” “predicts” and similar expressions which identify forward-looking statements, whether in the negative or the affirmative. We cannot guarantee that we actually will achieve these plans, intentions or expectations. These forward-looking statements are subject to risks, uncertainties and other factors, some of which are beyond our control, which could cause actual results to differ materially from those forecasted or anticipated in such forward-looking statements. You should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which reflect our view only as of the date of this report. We undertake no obligation to update these statements or publicly release the result of any revision(s) to these statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date of this report or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events.

Key risks to our company are described in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 29, 2012 and as may be supplemented by the risks described under Part II, Item 1A, of our quarterly reports on Form 10-Q and in our Current Reports on Form 8-K.

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

THREE MONTHS ENDED MARCH 31, 2012 AND 2011

 

1. BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND SIGNIFICANT POLICIES

The condensed consolidated interim unaudited financial statements included herein have been prepared by Entercom Communications Corp. and its subsidiaries (collectively, the “Company”) in accordance with: (i) generally accepted accounting principles (“U.S. GAAP”) for interim financial information; and (ii) the instructions of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) for Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. GAAP for annual financial statements. In the opinion of management, the financial statements reflect all adjustments considered necessary for a fair statement of the results of operations and financial position for the interim periods presented. All such adjustments are of a normal and recurring nature. The Company’s results are subject to seasonal fluctuations and, therefore, the results shown on an interim basis are not necessarily indicative of results for a full year.

Separate condensed consolidating financial information is not included as Entercom Communications Corp. does not have independent assets or operations, Entercom Radio, LLC (“Radio”) is a 100% owned finance subsidiary of Entercom Communications Corp., and all guarantees by Entercom Communications Corp. and its subsidiaries are full, unconditional (subject to the customary automatic release provisions), joint and several under its senior credit facility and are full, unconditional, joint and several under its senior unsecured notes.

This Form 10-Q should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and related notes included in the Company’s audited financial statements as of and for the year ended December 31, 2011 and filed with the SEC on February 29, 2012, as part of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations.

There have been no material changes from the Significant Accounting Policies described in our Form 10-K, for the year ended December 31, 2011 that was filed with the SEC on February 29, 2012.

 

2. INTANGIBLE ASSETS AND GOODWILL

(A) Indefinite-Lived Intangibles

Goodwill and certain intangible assets are not amortized. The Company accounts for its acquired broadcasting licenses as indefinite-lived intangible assets and, similar to goodwill, these assets are reviewed at least annually for impairment. At the time of each review, if the fair value is less than the recorded value of goodwill and certain intangibles (such as broadcasting licenses), then a charge is recorded to the results of operations.

 

(1) Broadcasting Licenses Impairment Test

The Company performs its annual broadcasting license impairment test during the second quarter of each year by evaluating its broadcasting licenses for impairment at the market level using the direct method.

The following table presents the changes in broadcasting licenses for the periods indicated:

4. LONG-TERM DEBT

(A) Senior Debt

The Credit Facility

On November 23, 2011, the Company entered into a new credit agreement with a syndicate of lenders for a $425 million senior secured credit facility (the “Credit Facility”), that is comprised of: (a) a $50 million revolving credit facility (the “Revolver”) that matures on November 23, 2016; and (b) a $375 million term loan (the “Term B Loan”) that matures on November 23, 2018.

 

8


Table of Contents

The undrawn amount of the Revolver was $39.4 million as of March 31, 2012. The amount of the Revolver available to the Company is a function of covenant compliance at the time of borrowing. Based on the Company’s financial covenant analysis as of March 31, 2012, the Company would not be limited in these borrowings.

The Credit Facility requires the Company to maintain compliance with specific financial covenants. Specifically, the Credit Facility requires the Company to comply with certain financial covenants which are defined terms within the agreement, including:

 

   

a maximum Consolidated Leverage Ratio that cannot exceed 7.25 times through June 30, 2012, which decreases over time to 4.50 times as of March 31, 2016 and thereafter; and

 

   

a minimum Consolidated Interest Coverage Ratio of 1.5 times through December 31, 2012, which increases over time to 2.0 times as of September 30, 2015 and thereafter.

The Term B Loan requires mandatory prepayments equal to 50% of Excess Cash Flow, as defined within the agreement, subject to incremental step-downs to 0%, depending on the Consolidated Leverage Ratio. Under the Term B Loan, the first Excess Cash Flow payment is due in the first quarter of 2013 based on the Excess Cash Flow and Leverage Ratio for calendar year 2012. The Company estimates that the Excess Cash Flow payment due in the first quarter of 2013, which is recorded under the current portion of long-term debt, will be approximately $16 million, net of prepayments through March 31, 2012. The amount of the Excess Cash Flow prepayment required is subject to change based on actual results, which could differ materially from the Company’s financial projections as of March 31, 2012.

Management believes that the Company is in compliance with all financial covenants and all other terms of the Credit Facility as of March 31, 2012. The Company’s ability to maintain compliance with its covenants will be highly dependent on its results of operations. A default under the Company’s Credit Facility or the indenture governing the Company’s Senior Notes could cause a cross default. Any event of default, therefore, could have a material adverse effect on our business and financial condition.

Management believes that over the next 12 months the Company can continue to maintain its compliance with these covenants. Management believes that cash on hand and cash from operating activities, together with available borrowings under the Revolver, will be sufficient to permit the Company to meet its liquidity requirements over the next 12 months, including its debt repayments. The Company’s operating cash flow is positive, and management believes that it is adequate to fund the Company’s operating needs. As a result, the Company has not been required to rely upon, and the Company does not anticipate being required to rely upon, the Revolver to fund its operations.

Failure to comply with the Company’s financial covenants or other terms of its Credit Facility and any subsequent failure to negotiate and obtain any required relief from its lenders could result in the acceleration of the maturity of all outstanding debt. Under these circumstances, the acceleration of the Company’s debt could have a material adverse effect on its business. The Company may seek from time to time to amend its Credit Facility or obtain other funding or additional funding, which may result in higher interest rates.

As of March 31, 2012, the Company’s Consolidated Leverage Ratio was 5.8 times and the Consolidated Interest Coverage Ratio was 3.6 times.

(B) Senior Unsecured Debt

The Senior Notes

Simultaneously with entering into the Credit Facility on November 23, 2011, the Company issued 10.5% unsecured senior notes, or the Senior Notes, that mature on December 1, 2019 in the amount of $220 million. The Company received net proceeds of $212.7 million, which includes a discount of $2.9 million, and incurred deferred financing costs of $6.1 million. These amounts will be amortized over the term under the effective interest rate method. Interest on the Senior Notes accrues at the rate of 10.5% per annum and is payable semi-annually in arrears on June 1 and December 1 of each year, commencing on June 1, 2012.

A default under the Company’s Senior Notes could cause a default under the Company’s Credit Facility. Any event of default, therefore, could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business and financial condition.

Total net interest expense

   $ 14,073     $ 5,972  
  

 

 

   

 

 

 

The Company’s interest expense was materially higher in 2012 primarily due to the higher borrowing costs under the Credit Facility and Senior Notes as compared to the Company’s former credit agreement (the “Former Facility”). Under these facilities, the Company could elect to borrow under the LIBOR Rate or the Base Rate, however, the Company’s borrowings have historically been primarily under the LIBOR Rate. Specifically, under the Company’s Former Facility, the Company could elect an interest rate equal to the LIBOR Rate plus fees that ranged from 0.5% to 2.5%. By contrast, under the Credit Facility, depending on the Consolidated Leverage Ratio, the Company may elect an interest rate per annum equal to the LIBOR Rate plus fees that can range from 4.5% to 5.0% for the Revolver and from 4.75% to 5.0% for the Term B Loan. The Term B Loan includes a LIBOR Rate floor of 1.25%. In addition, the Senior Notes accrue interest at 10.5% annually.

 

5. DERIVATIVES AND HEDGING ACTIVITIES

The Company from time to time enters into derivative financial instruments, including interest rate exchange agreements (“Swaps”) and interest rate collar agreements (“Collars”), to manage its exposure to fluctuations in interest rates.

Hedge Accounting Treatment

All of the Company’s interest rate transactions entered into in 2008 received hedge accounting treatment, which treatment continued throughout their terms for all hedges other than the hedge with an expiration date of May 28, 2012. In connection with the refinancing on November 23, 2011, this hedge, which was not terminated, no longer received hedge accounting treatment as the hedge was not effective due to the refinancing. As a result, the Company reclassified as of November 23, 2011 all amounts remaining in accumulated other comprehensive income to the statement of operations.

The gains and losses were recorded to the statement of comprehensive income (loss) as these derivatives qualified for hedge accounting treatment (except as disclosed above under Non-Hedge Accounting Treatment). The fair value of these derivatives was determined using observable market-based inputs (a Level 2 measurement) and the impact of the credit risk on a derivative’s fair value (the creditworthiness of the transaction’s counterparty for assets and the creditworthiness of the Company for liabilities).

As of November 23, 2011 the remaining amount in accumulated other comprehensive income related to these derivatives was reclassified to the statement of operations for the reasons described above.

8. INCOME TAXES

Tax Rate For The Three Months Ended March 31, 2012

The effective income tax rate was 56.0% for the three months ended March 31, 2012, which includes an adjustment for expenses that are not deductible for tax purposes, and the recognition of an additional tax benefit related to discrete items arising during the period.

Tax Rate For The Three Months Ended March 31, 2011

The effective income tax rate was 21.6% for the three months ended March 31, 2011, which reflects an increase in the deferred tax asset valuation allowance for the reasons as described below under Valuation Allowance For Deferred Tax Assets (after excluding net deferred tax liabilities associated with non-amortizable assets such as broadcasting licenses and goodwill). The increase in the valuation allowance was offset by certain discrete items of tax.

 

15


Table of Contents

Deferred Tax Assets And Liabilities

As of March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, net deferred tax liabilities were $7.5 million and $8.3 million, respectively. The income tax accounting process to determine the deferred tax liabilities involves estimating all temporary differences between the tax and financial reporting bases of the Company’s assets and liabilities, based on enacted tax laws and statutory tax rates applicable to the period in which the differences are expected to affect taxable income. The Company estimated the current exposure by assessing the temporary differences and computing the provision for income taxes by applying the estimated effective tax rate to income.

10. FAIR VALUE OF FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

Fair Value Of Financial Instruments Subject To Fair Value Measurements

Recurring Fair Value Measurements

The following tables set forth, by level within the fair value hierarchy, the Company’s financial assets and liabilities that were accounted for at fair value on a recurring basis as of the periods indicated. The financial assets and liabilities are classified in their entirety based on the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement. The Company’s assessment of the significance of a particular input to the fair value measurement requires judgment and may affect the valuation of fair value assets and liabilities and their placement within the fair value hierarchy levels.

  at fair value on a recurring basis. The unfunded plan allows participants to hypothetically invest in various specified investment options such as equity funds, stock funds, capital appreciation funds, money market funds, bond funds, mid-cap value funds and growth funds. The non-qualified deferred compensation plan liability is valued based on quoted market prices of the underlying investments. The Company classifies its non-qualified deferred compensation plan liability as Level 1.
(3) For the Company’s interest rate hedges, the Company pays a fixed rate and receives a variable interest rate that is observable based upon a forward LIBOR interest rate curve and is therefore considered a Level 2 measurement. The Company factors into the fair value of its interest rate hedges an adjustment for a non-performance risk by either the Company and/or by the Company’s counterparty. The Company reflects the short-term derivative liability under current liabilities and long-term derivative liability under other long-term liabilities.
(4) The Company’s lease abandonment liability is recorded at fair value on a recurring basis. The Company uses Level 2 inputs for its valuation methodology as the fair value of the underlying lease is based on expected future cash flows which are adjusted for a nonperformance risk by the Company. The Company reflects the short-term lease abandonment liability under current liabilities and long-term lease abandonment liability under other long-term liabilities.

Non-Recurring Fair Value Measurements

The Company has certain assets that are measured at fair value on a non-recurring basis and are adjusted to fair value only when the carrying values are more than the fair values. The categorization of the framework used to price the assets is considered Level 3, due to the subjective nature of the unobservable inputs used to determine the fair value.

During the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, there were no non-recurring fair value measurements.

Fair Value Of Financial Instruments Subject To Disclosures

The estimated fair value of financial instruments is determined using the best available market information and appropriate valuation methodologies. Considerable judgment is necessary, however, in interpreting market data to develop the estimates of fair value. Accordingly, the estimates presented are not necessarily indicative of the amounts that the Company could realize in a current market exchange, or the value that ultimately will be realized upon maturity or disposition. The use of different market assumptions may have a material effect on the estimated fair value amounts.

Cash and cash equivalents (other than the cash equivalents separately identified under this Note as a Level 1 measurement), accounts receivable and accounts payable, including accrued liabilities: The carrying amount of these assets and liabilities approximates fair value because of the short maturity of these instruments.

The following table presents the carrying value of financial instruments and, where practicable, the fair value as of the periods indicated:

Table of Contents

The following methods and assumptions were used to estimate the fair value of financial instruments:

(1) Senior debt: The Company’s determination of the fair value was based on a risk adjusted rate and is considered a Level 3 measurement.

(2) The Senior Notes: We utilize a Level 2 valuation input based upon the market trading prices of the Senior Notes to compute the fair value as these Senior Notes are traded in the debt securities market.

(3) Finance method lease obligations: The Company does not believe it is practicable to estimate the fair value of this obligation as it is unlikely that the Company will be required to repay the amount outstanding.

(4) Outstanding standby letter of credit: The Company does not believe it is practicable to estimate the fair value of this financial instrument and does not expect any material loss since the performance of the letter of credit is not likely to be required.

 

11. CONTINGENCIES, GUARANTOR ARRANGEMENTS AND COMMITMENTS

The Company is subject to various outstanding claims which arise in the ordinary course of business and to other legal proceedings. Management anticipates that any potential liability of the Company, which may arise out of or with respect to these matters, will not materially affect the Company’s financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

 

12. SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

Events occurring after March 31, 2012 were evaluated to ensure that any subsequent events that met the criteria for recognition have been included.

Pending Acquisition in San Francisco, California

On April 2, 2012, the Company entered into an asset purchase agreement to acquire the assets of KBLX-FM, a radio station serving the San Francisco, California, radio market, for a purchase price of $25.0 million in cash, of which $5.0 million was paid as a deposit from cash available from operating cash flow. Concurrently with entering into the asset purchase agreement, the Company also entered into a time brokerage agreement (“TBA”). Operations under the TBA commenced on May 1, 2012. The Company expects to complete the acquisition of this station during the second half of 2012, subject to approval by the FCC.

Together with this acquisition, the Company will own four radio stations serving the San Francisco radio market and one station serving the San Jose radio market. Management believes it acquired KBLX at an attractive valuation relative to the operating cash flow the station is expected to generate. The acquisition also expands the Company’s audience reach in the market, enhances its importance to its advertising and marketing customers, and enables certain synergies by capitalizing on the Company’s existing local management, facilities and infrastructure.

ITEM 2. Management’s Discussion And Analysis Of Financial Condition And Results Of Operations

In preparing the discussion and analysis contained in this Item 2, we presume that readers have read or have access to the discussion and analysis contained in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on February 29, 2012. In addition, you should read the following discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements and related notes included elsewhere in this report. The following results of operations include a discussion of the three months ended March 31, 2012 as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2011. Our results of operations during the relevant periods represent the operations of the radio stations owned or operated by us.

We evaluate net revenues, station operating expenses and operating income by comparing the performance of stations owned or operated by us throughout a relevant period to the performance of those same stations in the prior period whether or not owned or operated by us.

On January 19, 2011 we commenced operations under a time brokerage agreement (“TBA”) of KUFX-FM, a station licensed to San Jose, California. During January 2011, we began simulcasting the format of KUFX-FM on the frequency of one of our three San Francisco stations owned and operated by us, thereby providing a complement to the signal coverage of the KUFX-FM format in the San Francisco metropolitan market. On February 28, 2011, we acquired KUFX-FM. We consider neither the operation nor ownership of KUFX-FM as impacting our same station computations as the operation of KUFX-FM allows us to enhance an existing station’s listening audience.

Same station comparisons are used by us and those in the industry to assess the effect of acquisitions and dispositions on our operations throughout the periods measured.

Results Of Operations For The Year-To-Date

The following significant factors affected our results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2012 as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2011:

During November 2011, we refinanced our existing debt by entering into a new $425 million senior secured credit agreement (“Credit Facility”) and issuing $220 million of senior unsecured notes (“Senior Notes”). The refinancing increased our interest expense as our new debt has higher borrowing rates than our prior credit facility. In addition, our interest expense increased as we extinguished the remaining deferred financing fees from the prior credit facility, and incurred new deferred financing fees as part of the refinancing.

In February 2011, we acquired KUFX-FM, a station in San Jose, California which complemented our existing San Francisco station cluster. The KUFX acquisition also provided enhanced coverage of the San Francisco market and allowed us to launch the first classic rock superstation in the Bay Area.

Percentage Change

     (3.0 %)   

Despite revenue growth in the majority of our markets, we continued to be negatively impacted in a few key markets due to format changes during 2011 that included the establishment of FM simulcasts of three core AM stations. We believe, however, that the new formats, together with the establishment of the FM simulcasts, will improve the longer-term growth prospects for these brands. At this time, it is difficult for management to forecast revenues for the remainder of 2012 given the current cautiousness of advertisers due to the uncertainties surrounding the economy.

Our net revenues increased the most for those radio stations located in our Greensboro, Indianapolis and New Orleans markets, offset by a decrease for those radio stations in our Portland market as well as those radio stations in our Boston and San Francisco markets where the decline was primarily due to recent format changes.

Interest Expense

   $ 14.1     $ 6.0  

Amount of Change

   $ 8.1    

Percentage Change

     135.0  

The increase in interest expense was primarily due to the higher borrowing rates associated with our new debt that was entered into during the fourth quarter of 2011.

The fees were higher under our Credit Facility and Senior Notes as compared to our former credit agreement (the “Former Facility”). For example, under the Former Facility, the applicable borrowing rate was a function of LIBOR plus 0.5% to 2.5%. By contrast, under the present Credit Facility the applicable borrowing rate is a function of LIBOR plus 4.5% to 5.0% for the Revolver and LIBOR plus 4.75% to 5.0% for the Term B Loan (where the Term B Loan includes a LIBOR Rate floor of 1.25%). Moreover, the Senior Notes accrue interest at 10 1/2% annually.

Percentage Change

     (533.3 )%   

For the current period, the income tax benefit as a percentage of loss before income taxes was 56%, which includes an adjustment for expenses that are not deductible for tax purposes, and the recognition of an additional tax benefit related to discrete items arising during the period. We estimate that our annual tax rate for 2012, which may fluctuate from quarter to quarter, will be in the low 40% range.

For the prior period, income tax expense as a percentage of income before income taxes was 21.6%. During the second quarter of 2011, management determined that on a more likely than not realization basis, a full valuation allowance against our deferred tax assets was no longer required (the full valuation allowance was initially established in 2008).

As of March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, net deferred tax liabilities (net of deferred tax assets) were $7.5 million and $8.3 million, respectively. The deferred tax liabilities primarily relate to differences between book and tax bases of certain of our indefinite-lived intangibles (broadcasting licenses and goodwill).

Future Impairments

As of March 31, 2012, no interim impairment test of our broadcasting licenses and goodwill was required since the second quarter of 2011. As part of our annual review during the second quarter of 2011, we tested our broadcasting licenses and goodwill for impairment. No impairment was recorded as the fair value was greater than the amount reflected on our balance sheet. Future tests could result in impairments based on economic conditions at that time.

Liquidity And Capital Resources

Liquidity

Historically, we have carried significant amounts of debt. As of March 31, 2012, we had $375.0 million outstanding under our senior secured credit facility (the “Credit Facility”) and $220 million principal amount of our 10.5% senior unsecured notes (“the “Senior Notes”). In addition, we have outstanding financing method lease obligations of $12.6 million and a $0.6 million letter of credit. As of March 31, 2012, we had $11.1 million in cash and cash equivalents. The outstanding debt under our former credit facility (the “Former Facility”) was paid in full on November 23, 2011 with the proceeds from new financing as described below.

During the three months ended March 31, 2012, we decreased our outstanding debt by $9.9 million (net of accretion on our Senior Notes) and during the year ended 2011, we decreased our outstanding debt by $47.9 million.

The Credit Facility

On November 23, 2011, we entered into a new credit agreement with a syndicate of lenders for a $425 million Credit Facility, which is comprised of: (a) a $50 million revolving credit facility (the “Revolver”), that matures on November 23, 2016; and (b) a $375 million term loan (the “Term B Loan”), that matures on November 23, 2018. The Term B Loan amortizes in quarterly installments of $0.9 million with the first such payment due and payable on March 31, 2012 and any remaining principal and interest is due at maturity (except for certain mandatory principal prepayments of excess cash flow and other events as described below).

The undrawn amount of the Revolver was $39.4 million as of March 31, 2012. The amount of the Revolver available to us is a function of covenant compliance at the time of borrowing. Based on our financial covenant analysis as of March 31, 2012, we would not be limited in these borrowings.

The Credit Facility requires us to maintain compliance with specific financial covenants. Specifically, our Credit Facility requires us to comply with certain financial covenants which are defined terms within the agreement, including:

 

   

a maximum Consolidated Leverage Ratio that cannot exceed 7.25 times through June 30, 2012 and which decreases over time to 4.50 times as of March 31, 2016 and thereafter; and

 

   

a minimum Consolidated Interest Coverage Ratio of 1.5 times through December 31, 2012, which increases over time to 2.0 times as of September 30, 2015 and thereafter.

The Term B Loan requires: (1) mandatory prepayments equal to 50% of Excess Cash Flow, as defined within the agreement, subject to incremental step-downs to 0%, depending on the Consolidated Leverage Ratio; and

 

23


Table of Contents

(2) mandatory prepayments from certain events such as the sale of certain property or the issuance of debt. Under the Term B Loan, the first Excess Cash Flow payment is due in the first quarter of 2013 based on the Excess Cash Flow and Leverage Ratio for calendar year 2012. We estimate that the Excess Cash Flow payment due in the first quarter of 2013, which is included under the current portion of long-term debt, will be approximately $16 million, net of prepayments through March 31, 2012. The amount of Excess Cash Flow prepayments required is subject to change based on actual results, which could differ materially from our financial projections as of March 31, 2012.

Management believes we are in compliance with all financial covenants and all other terms of the Credit Facility as of March 31, 2012. Our ability to maintain compliance with our covenants will be highly dependent on our results of operations. A default under our Credit Facility or the indenture governing our Senior Notes could cause a cross default. Any event of default, therefore, could have a material adverse effect on our business and financial condition.

We believe that over the next 12 months we can continue to maintain our compliance with these covenants. We believe that cash on hand and cash from operating activities, together with available borrowings under the Revolver, will be sufficient to permit us to meet our liquidity requirements over the next 12 months, including our debt repayments. Our operating cash flow remains positive, and we believe that it is adequate to fund our operating needs. As a result, we have not been required to rely upon, and we do not anticipate being required to rely upon, the Revolver to fund our operations.

Failure to comply with our financial covenants or other terms of our Credit Facility and any subsequent failure to negotiate and obtain any required relief from our lenders could result in the acceleration of the maturity of all outstanding debt. Under these circumstances, the acceleration of our debt could have a material adverse effect on our business. We may seek from time to time to amend our Credit Facility or obtain other funding or additional financing, which may result in higher interest rates.

The Senior Notes

Simultaneously with entering into the Credit Facility, on November 23, 2011 we issued the Senior Notes which mature on December 1, 2019 in the amount of $220 million. We received net proceeds of $212.7 million, which includes a discount of $2.9 million and deferred financing costs of $6.1 million, which will be amortized over the term under the effective interest rate method. Interest on the Senior Notes accrues at the rate of 10.5% per annum and is payable semi-annually in arrears on June 1 and December 1 of each year, commencing on June 1, 2012.

In addition to the parent, Entercom Communications Corp., all of the Company’s existing subsidiaries (other than Entercom Radio, LLC, which is a finance subsidiary and is the issuer of the Senior Notes), jointly and severally guaranteed the Senior Notes. Under certain covenants, our subsidiary guarantors are restricted from paying dividends or distributions in excess of amounts defined under the Senior Notes, and the subsidiary guarantors are limited in their ability to incur additional indebtedness under certain restrictive covenants.

Table of Contents

A default under our Senior Notes could cause a default under our Credit Facility. Any event of default, therefore, could have a material adverse effect on our business and financial condition.

Operating Activities

Net cash flows provided by operating activities were $18.6 million and $21.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively. The cash flows from operating activities declined primarily due to the increase in interest expense associated with the refinancing of our outstanding debt during the fourth quarter of 2011.

Investing Activities

Net cash flows used in investing activities were $0.7 million and $9.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively.

ITEM 3. Quantitative And Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

We are exposed to market risk from changes in interest rates on our variable rate senior debt. From time to time, we may seek to limit our exposure to interest rate volatility through the use of derivative rate hedging instruments. If the borrowing rates under LIBOR were to increase 1% above the current rates as of March 31, 2012, our interest expense on our senior debt would increase marginally on an annual basis, including any interest benefit or interest expense associated with the use of derivative rate hedging instruments as described below. Due to the impact of the debt refinancing during the fourth quarter of 2011, interest expense will be substantially higher in 2012.

The following derivative rate hedging transaction, which fixes interest on our variable rate debt and is tied to the one-month LIBOR interest rate, is outstanding as of March 31, 2012:

The fair value (based upon current market rates) of rate hedging transactions is included as derivative instruments in long-term assets and/or liabilities for those instruments with maturity dates greater than one year and short-term assets and/or liabilities for those instruments with maturity dates less than one year. The fair value of a hedging transaction is affected by a combination of several factors, including the remaining period to maturity and the forward interest rate to maturity. Assuming the hedging transaction is a liability: (i) any decrease in the remaining period to maturity and/or an increase in the forward interest rate to maturity results in a more favorable valuation; and (ii) any decrease in the forward interest rate to maturity results in a less favorable valuation. Our credit exposure under these hedging agreements, or similar agreements we may enter into in the future, is the cost of replacing an agreement in the event of non-performance by our counterparty.

As of March 31, 2012, the fair value of our derivative instrument was a liability of $0.6 million, which represented a decrease in liability from the balance as of December 31, 2011. The change was primarily due to the effect of a decrease in the remaining period to maturity of the derivative instrument as the forward interest rate curve to maturity remained relatively flat. The liability as of March 31, 2012 included a reduction in value for non-performance in accordance with the accounting provisions for fair value measurement.

Our cash equivalents are money market instruments consisting of short-term government securities and repurchase agreements that are fully collateralized by government securities. We do not believe that we have any material credit exposure with respect to these assets.

Our credit exposure related to our accounts receivable does not represent a significant concentration of credit risk due to the quantity of advertisers, the minimal reliance on any one advertiser, the multiple markets in which we operate and the wide variety of advertising business sectors.

See also additional disclosures regarding liquidity and capital resources made under Liquidity and Capital Resources in Part 1, Item 2, above.

 

ITEM 4. Controls And Procedures

Evaluation Of Controls And Procedures

We maintain “disclosure controls and procedures” (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) of the Exchange Act) that are designed to ensure that: (i) information required to be disclosed in our Exchange Act reports is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms; and (ii) such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate, to allow for timely decisions regarding required disclosure. In designing and evaluating our disclosure controls and procedures, our management recognizes that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objectives, and our management is required to apply its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible controls and procedures.
