special litigation committee consisting of certain independent directors of
the Company, Clear Channel Communications, Inc. (“CCU”), the Company’s
indirect parent company, and the other parties thereto, the Company announced
today (i) that it notified CCU of its intent to make a demand (the “Demand”)
for repayment on November 8, 2013 of $200,000,000 outstanding under the
Revolving Promissory Note, dated as of November 10, 2005, between CCU, as
