Amendment No. 4 to Senior Credit Facility
On May 19, 2021, MediaCo Holding Inc. (“MediaCo” or “the Company”) entered into Amendment No. 4 and Waiver (“Amendment No. 4”) to its amended and restated term loan agreement (such agreement, as so amended, the “Senior Credit Facility”). Under the terms of Amendment No. 4:
the Company’s majority shareholder, SG Broadcasting LLC (“SG Broadcasting”), agreed to contribute up to $7.0 million to the Company in the form of subordinated debt, with $3.0 million contributed at closing, $1.0 million to be contributed by June 1, 2021, and up to an additional $3.0 million to be contributed through June 30, 2022, if necessary, to satisfy certain conditions described in Amendment No. 4;
the Company made a principal payment of $3.0 million to reduce borrowings outstanding under the Senior Credit Facility;
no quarterly scheduled principal payments are required through and including the quarter ending March 31, 2022;
the Minimum Consolidated Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio (as defined in the Senior Credit Facility) was reduced to 1.00:1.00 from April 1, through and including December 31, 2022, with it increasing to 1.10:1.00 on and after January 1, 2023;
for purposes of calculating compliance with the Minimum Consolidated Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio, Consolidated EBITDA (as defined in the Senior Credit Facility) includes certain amounts contributed by SG Broadcasting in the form of subordinated debt or equity, including those described above;
for purposes of calculating the Company’s borrowing base under the Senior Credit Facility, the multiple applied to Billboard Cash Flow (as defined in the Senior Credit Facility) increased from 3.5 to 5.0 and the advance rate applied to the radio stations’ FCC licenses increased from 60% to 70%;
at any time the multiple applied to Billboard Cash Flow exceeds 3.5 or the advance rate applied to the radio stations’ FCC licenses exceeds 60%, an incremental annual interest rate of 1% applies and is paid in kind monthly;
certain specified events of default were waived; and
an amendment fee of $0.4 million was paid in cash.
Convertible Promissory Note
Also on May 19, 2021, the Company issued to SG Broadcasting a subordinated convertible promissory note (the “May 2021 SG Broadcasting Promissory Note”), in return for which SG Broadcasting contributed $3.0 million to the Company to make the prepayment of Senior Credit Facility debt required under Amendment No. 4. Up to $7.0 million may be borrowed pursuant to the May 2021 SG Broadcasting Promissory Note. The May 2021 SG Broadcasting Promissory Note carries interest at a base rate equal to the interest on any senior credit facility, or if no senior credit facility is outstanding, of 6.0%, and an additional increase of 1.0% on November 25, 2021 and additional annual increases of 1.0% following each successive anniversary thereafter. The May 2021 SG Broadcasting Promissory Note matures on May 25, 2025 and interest is payable in kind through maturity. Subject to prior shareholder approval of the issuance of the shares, the May 2021 SG Broadcasting Promissory Note is convertible into MediaCo Class A common stock at the option of SG Broadcasting at a strike price equal to the thirty day volume weighted average price of the MediaCo Class A common stock on the date of conversion.
As of May 19, 2021, SG Broadcasting is the controlling shareholder of the Company, beneficially owning more than 91.03% of the outstanding common stock of the Company, including 100% of the outstanding Class B Common Stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Class B Stock”), of the Company, which percentages of Class A Stock and Class B Stock collectively represent approximately 97.42% of the combined voting power of the outstanding voting securities of the Company.
The foregoing descriptions are qualified in their entireties by reference to the complete terms and conditions of Amendment No. 4 and the May 2021 SG Broadcasting Promissory Note, which are filed as Exhibits 10.1 and 10.2 hereto, respectively, and which are incorporated by reference herein.
Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.
The information provided with respect to Amendment No. 4 and the May 2021 SG Broadcasting Promissory Note under Item 1.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K is incorporated by reference into this Item 2.03.
Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangement of Certain Officers.
On May 21, 2021, the Compensation Committee of the board of directors of the Company increased the annual base salary for Brad A. Tobin, our Chief Operating Officer, from $200,000 to $350,000.
The Company is filing this Current Report on Form 8-K to present in modified form certain information in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on March 30, 2021 (the “2020 Form 10-K”). The modified information includes the risk factors included in the 2020 Form 10-K, the Company’s consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2020, and the notes to consolidated and combined financial statements (the “Notes”). In addition, the Company is presenting in modified form its Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.
The modifications are being presented in light of the fact that since the date of completion by the Company’s Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm of the audit of the Company’s consolidated and combined financial statements, and the initial issuance of the Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm’s report thereon dated March 30, 2021, which contained an explanatory paragraph regarding the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern, the Company, as discussed in Notes 1, 6 and 16 of the Notes, has completed an amendment of its senior credit facility and obtained additional capital contributions from its majority stockholder. Therefore, the conditions described in the 2020 Form 10-K that raised substantial doubt about whether the Company will continue as a going concern no longer exist.
The following information included in the 2020 Form 10-K has been modified from the previous presentation:
Part I, Item 1A. Risk Factors
Part II, Item 7. Management Discussion’s and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations
Part II, Item 8. Financial Statements and Supplementary Data
The modified consolidated financial information contained in the exhibit hereto does not represent a restatement of MediaCo’s previously issued consolidated and combined financial statements that were included in the 2020 Form 10-K.
Except as specifically noted herein and in the attached exhibits, this Current Report on Form 8-K does not reflect events or developments that occurred after March 30, 2021, the date on which MediaCo filed the 2020 Form 10-K with the SEC, and does not modify or update the disclosures in any way other than as described above and set forth in the exhibits hereto. Without limiting the foregoing, this filing does not purport to update or amend the information contained in the 2020 Form 10-K for any information, uncertainties, transactions, risks, events or trends occurring or known to management. More current information is or will be contained in MediaCo’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2021 and other filings with the SEC. The information in this Current Report on Form 8-K should be read in conjunction with the 2020 Form 10-K. Revisions to the 2020 Form 10-K included in this Current Report on Form 8-K as noted above supersede the corresponding portions of the 2020 Form 10-K.
