Board Accepts New Terms for Clear Channel LBO
The Clear Channel Communications sale to Bain Capital and Thomas L. Lee Partners has been off and on for months; now it appears on as the Clear Channel board accepted a revised offer (that it previously turned down) for the company. Several influential shareholders were involved in negotiating the terms. Shareholders will receive $39.20 per share in cash or equity participation in the new company, up to 30%. The buyers have agreed to limit their fees and to name two independent directors. A shareholder vote will take place in the next few months.
