Balance Sheet

As of December 31, 2012, the company had $213.5 million of 9 5/8% senior secured second lien notes outstanding, $33.0 million drawn on its revolver, $7.5 million subordinated debt and $15.0 million subordinated debt payable to related parties. The company was in compliance with the covenants of its credit facility and bond indenture. The company's bank leverage ratio was 4.87 versus a compliance covenant of 6.25.

Today, Salem launched a tender offer to purchase for cash any and all of its outstanding 9 5/8% Notes and a related consent solicitation to amend the indenture governing the 9 5/8% Notes (collectively, the "Tender Offer"). In connection with the Tender Offer, the company plans to enter into a new senior secured term loan of up to $300 million, which will be used to fund the purchase of any 9 5/8% Notes that are tendered in the Tender Offer, and retire all other outstanding corporate debt. The company also plans to enter into a new senior secured revolving credit facility of up to $25 million. If the requisite consents have been obtained from holders of the 9 5/8% Notes in the Tender Offer, substantially all of the restrictive covenants and certain events of default in the indenture governing the 9 5/8% Notes will be eliminated and the liens on the assets that secure the 9 5/8% Notes will be released, making any 9 5/8% Notes that remain outstanding after the consummation of the Tender Offer effectively subordinated to the new term loan and the new revolving credit facility to the extent of the value of the collateral. Holders of the 9 5/8% Notes who tender by the consent payment deadline, which is anticipated to be March 8, 2013, will receive a consent payment as part of the Tender Offer consideration. The Tender Offer is anticipated to expire on March 22, 2013. Regardless of whether the company obtains the requisite consents from holders of the 9 5/8% Notes in the Tender Offer, the company intends, at its sole discretion and without any obligation to do so, to retire any 9 5/8% Notes that are not tendered in the Tender Offer in accordance with the terms of the indenture governing the 9 5/8% Notes, which may include redeeming the 9 5/8% Notes.

Cash Distribution

Salem paid a cash distribution of $0.035 per share on its Class A and Class B common stock on December 28, 2012 to shareholders of record as of December 14, 2012. The distribution totaled approximately $0.9 million. For the year, Salem has paid $3.4 million, or $0.14 per share, in cash distributions.

Acquisitions and Divestitures

The following transactions were completed since October 1, 2012:

  • On February 15, 2013, the company completed the acquisition of radio station WTOH-FM (formerly WJKR-FM) in Columbus, Ohio for $4.0 million;
  • On February 5, 2013, the company completed the acquisition of radio station WGTK-FM (formerly WMUU-FM) in Greenville, South Carolina for $6.0 million, of which $1.0 million was paid upon closing, $2.0 million is payable in April 2014 and $3.0 million is payable in advertising credits;
  • On December 12, 2012, the company redeemed an additional $4.0 million of the 9 5/8% senior secured second lien notes due 2016 for $4.1 million, or at a price equal to 103% of the face value. This transaction resulted in a $0.2 million pre-tax loss on the early retirement of debt; and
  • On October 2, 2012, the company acquired Godvine.com for $4.2 million.

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, provided an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data professionals...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
@DevOpsSummit taking place June 6-8, 2017 at Javits Center, New York City, is co-located with the 20th International Cloud Expo and will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. @DevOpsSummit at Cloud Expo New York Call for Papers is now open.
Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...
In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...
The cloud competition for database hosts is fierce. How do you evaluate a cloud provider for your database platform? In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Chris Presley, a Solutions Architect at Pythian, gave users a checklist of considerations when choosing a provider. Chris Presley is a Solutions Architect at Pythian. He loves order – making him a premier Microsoft SQL Server expert. Not only has he programmed and administered SQL Server, but he has also shared his expertise and passion with b...
As data explodes in quantity, importance and from new sources, the need for managing and protecting data residing across physical, virtual, and cloud environments grow with it. Managing data includes protecting it, indexing and classifying it for true, long-term management, compliance and E-Discovery. Commvault can ensure this with a single pane of glass solution – whether in a private cloud, a Service Provider delivered public cloud or a hybrid cloud environment – across the heterogeneous enter...
"IoT is going to be a huge industry with a lot of value for end users, for industries, for consumers, for manufacturers. How can we use cloud to effectively manage IoT applications," stated Ian Khan, Innovation & Marketing Manager at Solgeniakhela, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
@GonzalezCarmen has been ranked the Number One Influencer and @ThingsExpo has been named the Number One Brand in the “M2M 2016: Top 100 Influencers and Brands” by Onalytica. Onalytica analyzed tweets over the last 6 months mentioning the keywords M2M OR “Machine to Machine.” They then identified the top 100 most influential brands and individuals leading the discussion on Twitter.
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Predictive analytics tools monitor, report, and troubleshoot in order to make proactive decisions about the health, performance, and utilization of storage. Most enterprises combine cloud and on-premise storage, resulting in blended environments of physical, virtual, cloud, and other platforms, which justifies more sophisticated storage analytics. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Peter McCallum, Vice President of Datacenter Solutions at FalconStor, discussed using predictive analytics to mon...
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...
Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments. However, the rate of the change, and the potential outcomes from today's digital transformation has the distinct potential to separate the industry into two camps: Organizations that see the change coming, embrace it, and successful leverage it; and...
