Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

Indenture for 6.500% Senior Secured Second-Lien Notes due 2027

On December 13, 2019, Entercom Media Corp. (formerly CBS Radio Inc.) (the “Issuer”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Entercom Communications Corp. (the “Company”), completed the issuance and sale of $100,000,000 aggregate principal amount of additional 6.500% Senior Secured Second-Lien Notes due 2027 (the “Additional Notes”). The Additional Notes were issued as additional notes under an existing indenture, dated as of April 30, 2019 (the “Base Indenture”), as supplemented by a first supplemental indenture, dated as of the date hereof (the “First Supplemental Indenture” and, together with the Base Indenture, the “Indenture”), among the Issuer, the guarantors named therein (the “Guarantors”) and Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas, as trustee and as notes collateral agent (the “Trustee”). The Additional Notes are treated as a single series with the $325,000,000 aggregate principal amount of 6.500% Senior Secured Second-Lien Notes due 2027 issued on April 30, 2019 under the Base Indenture (the “Existing Notes” and, together with the Additional Notes, the “Notes”) and have substantially the same terms as the Existing Notes. The Additional Notes were issued at a price of 105.000% of their principal amount, plus accrued interest from November 1, 2019.

The Additional Notes were issued in a private offering exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), to qualified institutional buyers in accordance with Rule 144A under the Securities Act and to persons outside of the United States pursuant to Regulation S under the Securities Act. The Additional Notes are secured on a second-priority basis by liens on substantially all of the assets of the Issuer and the Guarantors and are fully and unconditionally guaranteed, jointly and severally, on a senior secured second-priority basis by each of the Guarantors. The Guarantors consist of each of the Issuer’s direct and indirect subsidiaries that guarantees the Issuer’s Credit Agreement, dated as of October 17, 2016, among the Issuer, as borrower, the guarantors named therein, the lenders named therein and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as administrative agent, which governs the Issuer’s revolving credit facility (as amended, the “Revolver”) and senior secured term loan facility (as amended, the “Term Loan” and, together with the Revolver, the “Senior Credit Facilities”).

The Additional Notes and the related guarantees have not been, and will not be, registered under the Securities Act and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements.

The Additional Notes bear interest at a rate of 6.500% per year. Interest on the Notes is payable semiannually in arrears on May 1 and November 1 of each year, beginning on May 1, 2020. The Additional Notes will mature on May 1, 2027, subject to earlier repurchase or redemption in accordance with the terms of the Indenture.

The Company used the net proceeds of the offering of the Additional Notes to partially repay existing indebtedness and accrued interest under its Term Loan.

The foregoing summary of the Indenture and the Notes does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete terms of the Base Indenture, the First Supplemental Indenture and the Notes, copies of which are filed with this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibits 4.1, 4.2 and 4.3, respectively, and are incorporated herein by reference.

Certain of the initial purchasers and/or their affiliates are lenders and/or agents under the Senior Credit Facilities. Upon any application of the net proceeds from this offering to partially repay the Term Loan, each lender will receive its proportionate share of the amount being repaid. As a result, certain of the initial purchasers and/or their affiliates will receive a portion of the net proceeds of this offering.

Credit Agreement Amendment

Substantially concurrently with the issuance of the Additional Notes and the use of proceeds of the Additional Notes to repay, in part, the outstanding balance of the Term Loan, the Issuer entered into an amendment (the “Amendment”) to the Senior Credit Facilities to, among other things, reduce the interest rate margins on the Term Loan, amend the interest rate applicable to the Revolver to calculate the margin based on the Consolidated First Lien Net Leverage Ratio (which will have the effect of reducing the interest rate margins) and extend the maturity of a substantial portion of the Revolver.

The foregoing summary of the Amendment does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete terms of the Amendment, a copy of which is filed with this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
