On November 7, 2014, Media General, Inc. entered into an amendment No. 3 to credit agreement, with Royal Bank of Canada (RBC), as administrative agent, and the other lenders and parties thereto. Pursuant to amendment No. 3, the company’s existing term B credit facility under its senior secured credit facility was amended, to be effective as of the closing date of the company’s proposed business combination with LIN Media LLC, to eliminate testing and operation of the credit facility’s quarterly maintenance consolidated Total Net Leverage Ratio financial covenant, as such covenant is applicable to the term B credit facility, and modify the annual excess cash flow mandatory prepayment provisions to require that a minimum annual $50 million excess cash flow payment is made in fiscal years 2017, 2018 and 2019, provided that each of such minimum amounts will be reduced by the sum of other voluntary and/or mandatory prepayments made in respect of the term B credit facility and permanent reductions of the revolving credit facility in or prior to such periods. These amendments were made to align the applicable provisions with the comparable provisions in the company’s pending incremental term B-2 credit facility, which is expected to be entered into concurrently with the LIN Merger.
