|Item 7.01||Regulation FD Disclosure|
On December 20, 2009, Citadel Broadcasting Corporation (the Company) and certain of its subsidiaries (collectively the Debtors) filed voluntary petitions in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York (the Court) seeking relief under the provisions of chapter 11 of Title 11 of the United States Code. Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K contains the unaudited Monthly Operating Report as filed with the Court.
The Monthly Operating Report is limited in scope, covers a limited time period and has been prepared solely for the purpose of complying with reporting requirements of the Court and the Bankruptcy Code, 11 U.S.C. §§ 101-1532 (the Bankruptcy Code). The financial information contained in the Monthly Operating Report is preliminary and unaudited and does not purport to show the financial statements of any of the Debtors in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (GAAP) and, therefore, may exclude items required by GAAP, such as certain reclassifications, eliminations, accruals and disclosure items. In addition, the financial information contained in the Monthly Operating Report also excludes certain non-Debtor entities of the Company that are consolidated for GAAP purposes. The Company cautions readers not to place undue reliance on the Monthly Operating Reports. The Monthly Operating Report may be subject to revision. The Monthly Operating Report is in a format required by the Court and the Bankruptcy Code and should not be used for investment purposes. The information in the Monthly Operating Report should not be viewed as indicative of future results.
Additional information about the Debtors chapter 11 cases pending in the Court, including access to court documents and other general information about the chapter 11 cases, is available online at http://www.kccllc.net/citadel.
Limitation on Incorporation by Reference
The Monthly Operating Report is being furnished for informational purposes only and shall not be deemed filed for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall they be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. Registration statements or other documents filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) shall not incorporate the Monthly Operating Report or any other information set forth in this Current Report on Form 8-K by reference, except as otherwise expressly stated in such filing. This Current Report on Form 8-K will not be deemed an admission as to the materiality of any information in the Monthly Operating Report that is required to be disclosed solely by Regulation FD.
This current report on Form 8-K, as well as other statements made by the Company, may contain forward-looking statements within the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, that reflect, when made, the Companys current views with respect to current events and financial performance. Such forward-looking statements are and will be, as the case may be, subject to many risks, uncertainties and factors relating to the Companys operations and business environment, which may cause the actual results of the Company to be materially different from any future results, express or implied, by such forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from these forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, the following: (i) the ability of the Company to continue as a going concern; (ii) the Companys ability to obtain court approval with respect to motions in the chapter 11 proceeding prosecuted by it from time to time; (iii) the ability of the Company to develop, prosecute, confirm and consummate one or more plans of reorganization with respect to the chapter 11 cases; (iv) risks associated with third parties seeking and obtaining court approval to terminate or shorten the exclusivity period for the Company to propose and confirm one or more plans of reorganization, for the appointment of a chapter 11 trustee or to convert the cases to chapter 7 cases; (v) the ability of the Company to obtain and maintain normal terms with vendors and service providers; (vi) the Companys ability to maintain contracts and leases that are critical to its operations; (vii) the potential adverse impact of the chapter 11 cases on the Companys liquidity, results of operations and business relations; (viii) the ability of the Company to execute its business plans and strategy; (ix) the ability of the Company to attract, motivate and/or retain key executives and associates; (x) general economic or business conditions affecting the radio broadcasting industry being less favorable than expected; and (xi) increased competition in the radio broadcasting industry. Other risk factors are listed from time to time in the Companys United States Securities and Exchange Commission reports, including but not limited to the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2009. The Company disclaims any intention or obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events and/or otherwise.
Similarly, these and other factors, including the terms of any plan of reorganization ultimately confirmed, can affect the value of the Companys various pre-petition liabilities, common stock and/or other equity securities. Additionally, no assurance can be given as to what values, if any, will be ascribed in the bankruptcy proceedings to each of these constituencies. A plan or plans of reorganization could result in holders of the Companys common stock or other equity interests and claims relating to pre-petition liabilities receiving no distribution on account of their interest and cancellation of their interests and
their claims and cancellation of their claims. Under certain conditions specified in the Bankruptcy Code, a plan of reorganization may be confirmed notwithstanding its rejection by an impaired class of creditors or equity holders and notwithstanding the fact that certain creditors or equity holders do not receive or retain property on account of their claims or equity interests under the plan. In light of the foregoing, the Company considers the value of the common stock and claims to be highly speculative and cautions equity holders that the stock and creditors that the claims may ultimately be determined to have no value. Accordingly, the Company urges that appropriate caution be exercised with respect to existing and future investments in the Companys common stock or other equity interest or any claims relating to pre-petition liabilities. The proposed plan of reorganization currently provides that all of the Companys common stock and other equity interests will be cancelled for no consideration.
