The Notes will be issued by LBI Media at the initial price of 98.594% of the principal amount. The aggregate net proceeds from the sale of the Notes, after deducting initial purchasers' discounts, fees and estimated offering expenses, will be used by LBI Media to repay all amounts outstanding under its existing senior secured credit facilities and for general corporate purposes.
The Notes will not be registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws.
