Nexstar enters agreements to divest nineteen stations for $1.32B

Nexstar Media Group (NXST) and Tribune Media Company (TRCO) announced that Nexstar has entered into definitive agreements to sell a total of nineteen stations in fifteen markets for an aggregate $1.32B in cash following the acquisition of Tribune Media by Nexstar. Under the terms of the agreements, TEGNA Inc. (TGNA) will acquire eleven stations in eight markets for $740M and The E.W. Scripps Company (SSP) will acquire eight stations in seven markets for $580M. Separately, Nexstar remains engaged in active negotiations to divest two stations in Indianapolis, Indiana. On December 3, 2018, Nexstar and Tribune Media entered into a definitive merger agreement whereby Nexstar will acquire all outstanding shares of Tribune Media. The planned divestiture of nineteen stations reflects Nexstar's stated intention to divest certain television stations in order to comply with the FCC local and national television ownership rules and to obtain FCC and Department of Justice approval of the proposed Nexstar / Tribune Media transaction. Nexstar intends to use the net proceeds from the divestitures to fund the Tribune acquisition and to reduce debt. Given that the net proceeds from the divestitures exceed those initially estimated at the time the transaction was announced, Nexstar now estimates that net leverage at the closing of the transaction will be reduced to approximately 5.1x. The planned divestiture of the nineteen stations is subject to FCC approval, other regulatory approvals, the closing of the Nexstar / Tribune Media transaction and other customary closing conditions and is expected to be completed on, or about the time of, the closing of the Nexstar / Tribune Media transaction, which is expected later this year.

Reported DOJ investigation likely to pressure broadcaster stocks, says Stephens
After The Wall Street Journal reported yesterday that the Department of Justice is investigating whether TV station owners violated antitrust law in ways that inflated local ad prices, Stephens analyst Kyle Evans said that the negative news is likely to further pressure a group that he sees being "hard to own in any quarter." Evans added that, in his view, any miss within the group seems to drag them all down. Publicly traded broadcasters include Sinclair (SBGI), Tribune Media (TRCO), Gray Television (GTN), Nexstar (NXST) and Tegna (TGNA).
