ABOUT THIS PROSPECTUS

This prospectus is part of a registration statement that we filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) utilizing a “shelf” registration process. Under this shelf registration process, we may offer from time to time any combination of the debt securities and related guarantees described in this prospectus in one or more offerings. This prospectus provides you with a general description of the debt securities and related guarantees we may offer. Each time we offer debt securities and related guarantees, we will provide a prospectus supplement or term sheet that will contain specific information about the terms of that offering, including amounts, prices and terms of the debt securities being offered. The prospectus supplement or term sheet may also add, update or change information contained in this prospectus. You should read both this prospectus and any prospectus supplement or term sheet together with additional information described immediately below under the headings “Available Information” and “Incorporation of Certain Information by Reference.”

Because we are a well-known seasoned issuer, as defined in Rule 405 of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), we may add to and offer additional debt securities and related guarantees, including those to be sold by securityholders, by filing a prospectus supplement or term sheet with the SEC at the time of the offer.

Unless indicated otherwise, the terms “AMC Networks,” the “Company,” “we,” “us,” and “our” each refer to AMC Networks Inc., together with its direct and indirect subsidiaries. “AMC Networks Inc.” refers to AMC Networks Inc. individually as a separate entity.

AVAILABLE INFORMATION

We are required to file annual, quarterly and current reports, proxy statements and other information with the SEC. You may read and copy any documents filed by us at the SEC’s public reference room at 100 F Street, N.E., Washington, D.C. 20549. Please call the SEC at 1-800-SEC-0330 for further information on the public reference room. Our filings with the SEC are also available to the public through the SEC’s Internet site at http://www.sec.gov.

We have filed a registration statement on Form S-3 with the SEC relating to the debt securities and related guarantees covered by this prospectus. This prospectus is a part of the registration statement and does not contain all the information in the registration statement. Whenever a reference is made in this prospectus to a contract or other document of AMC Networks, the reference is only a summary and you should refer to the exhibits that are a part of the registration statement for a copy of the contract or other document. You may review a copy of the registration statement at the SEC’s public reference room in Washington, D.C., as well as through the SEC’s Internet site.

INCORPORATION OF CERTAIN INFORMATION BY REFERENCE

The SEC’s rules allow us to “incorporate by reference” information into this prospectus. This means that we can disclose important information to you by referring you to another document. Any information referred to in this way is considered part of this prospectus from the date we file that document. Any reports filed by us with the SEC after the date of this prospectus and before the date that the offering of the debt securities and related guarantees by means of this prospectus is terminated will automatically update and, where applicable, supersede any information contained in this prospectus or incorporated by reference in this prospectus.

AMC NETWORKS

AMC Networks owns and operates several of the most recognized brands in television, delivering high quality content to audiences and a valuable platform to distributors and advertisers. We have operated in the cable programming industry for more than 30 years, and, over this time, we have continually enhanced the value of our network portfolio. Our programming networks are well known and well regarded by our key constituents — our viewers, distributors and advertisers — and have developed strong followings within their respective targeted demographics, increasing their value to distributors and advertisers.

Table of Contents

In the United States (U.S.), our programming networks are AMC, WE tv, BBC AMERICA (our joint venture with BBC Worldwide Americas, Inc.), IFC and SundanceTV. Each of our programming networks have established themselves within their respective markets. Our deep and established presence in the industry and the recognition we have received for our brands through industry awards and other honors lend us a high degree of credibility with distributors and content producers, and help provide us with stable affiliate and studio relationships, advantageous channel placements and heightened viewer engagement. Over the past several years, we have begun to produce some of our own original programming. Our ability to produce owned, high-quality content has provided us with the opportunity to distribute such content on platforms other than our domestic networks. We have principally licensed content for linear distribution internationally, digital distribution, home video and syndication.

Internationally, we deliver programming that reaches subscribers in more than 140 countries and territories, including countries and territories in Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and parts of Asia and Africa. The global division of the Company, AMC Networks International, consists of global brands, including Sundance Channel and AMC, in the movie and entertainment programming genres, as well as popular, locally recognized channels in various other programming genres.

We earn revenue principally from the distribution of our programming and the sale of advertising. Distribution revenues primarily include affiliation fees paid by distributors to carry our programming networks as well as revenue earned from the licensing of original programming for digital, foreign and home video distribution.

DESCRIPTION OF DEBT SECURITIES WE MAY OFFER

Please note that in this section entitled “Description of Debt Securities We May Offer,” references to the “Company,” “we,” “our” and “us” refer only to AMC Networks Inc. and not to its consolidated subsidiaries. Also, in this section, references to “holders” mean those who own debt securities registered in their own names, on the books that we or the trustee maintain for this purpose, and not those who own beneficial interests in debt securities registered in street name or in debt securities issued in book-entry form through one or more depositaries. Owners of beneficial interests in the debt securities should read the section below entitled “Legal Ownership and Book-Entry Issuance.”

We may offer debt securities from time to time. The obligations of AMC Networks Inc. under the debt securities will be guaranteed by each of the Guarantors, subject to certain exceptions. When we use the term “securities” in this prospectus, we mean any of the debt securities and the related guarantees we and the Guarantors may offer with this prospectus, unless we say otherwise.

This prospectus, including the following description of the terms of the debt securities, sets forth general terms that may apply to the debt securities. The particular terms of the debt securities offered by any prospectus supplement and the extent, if any, to which such general provisions may apply to the debt securities so offered will be described in the prospectus supplement relating to such debt securities. Accordingly, for a description of the terms of a particular issue of debt securities, reference must be made to both the prospectus supplement relating thereto and to the following description.

The debt securities will be our general obligations. The debt securities will be issued under an indenture (the “indenture”) between us and U.S. Bank National Association, as trustee (the “trustee”), as supplemented from time to time. Subject to certain limitations imposed by the Trust Indenture Act of 1939, as amended (the “Trust Indenture Act”), the trustee, under the indenture, in its individual or any other capacity, may become the owner or pledgee of our debt securities and may otherwise deal with and collect obligations owed to it by us and may otherwise deal with us with the same rights it would have if it were not the trustee.

The following is a summary of the most important provisions of the indenture. A copy of a form of the indenture has been filed as an exhibit to the registration statement of which this prospectus is a part. The following discussion of certain provisions of the indenture is a summary only and does not purport to be a complete description of the terms and provisions of the indenture. We urge you to read the indenture because it, and not this description, defines your rights as a holder of the debt securities.

The indenture does not contain any provisions that limit our ability to incur indebtedness or that afford holders of the debt securities protection in the event of a highly leveraged or similar transaction, other than as described under “—Certain Covenants—Limitation on Indebtedness.”

Ranking; Issuance In Series

Unless the applicable prospectus supplement specifies otherwise, the debt securities will rank equally and ratably with all of our other unsecured and unsubordinated obligations. The indenture does not limit the total amount of debt securities that we may issue under it, and we may issue debt securities under the indenture up to the aggregate principal amount authorized by our Board of Directors from time to time.

We may issue debt securities in one or more separate series. The prospectus supplement relating to an offering of a particular series of debt securities will specify the particular amounts, prices and terms of those debt securities. These terms may include:

 

    the title of the debt securities of the series;

 

    any limit upon the aggregate principal amount of the debt securities of the series that may be authenticated and delivered under the indenture;

    any additions, modifications or deletions in the events of default with respect to the debt securities of the series and any change in the right of the trustee or the holder of any debt securities of the series to declare the principal of, and any premium or any interest on, such debt securities immediately due and payable;

 

    any trustee, authenticating or paying agents, transfer agents or registrars or any other agents with respect to the debt securities of the series;

 

    any terms of any Guarantee of the payment of principal, any premium and any interest, with respect to the debt securities of the series and any corresponding changes to the provisions of the indenture as then in effect; and

 

    any other terms of the debt securities of the series not inconsistent with the provisions of the indenture, including, without limitation, any securities of ours or of another person into which the debt securities of the series are convertible or for which the debt securities of the series are exercisable or exchangeable.

Guarantees

The debt securities and the Company’s obligations under the indenture will be guaranteed, jointly and severally, by (i) each Domestic Restricted Subsidiary (other than any Insignificant Subsidiary) and (ii) each RMH GE Entity that guarantees any other Indebtedness of the Company or any of the Company’s Restricted Subsidiaries. As of the date of this prospectus, all of the Company’s Domestic Restricted Subsidiaries and each of the RMH GE Entities are Guarantors.

Each Guarantee will be:

 

    a general unsecured obligation of that Guarantor;

 

    effectively subordinated to any secured Indebtedness of that Guarantor, including the guarantee of that Guarantor under the Credit Agreement, to the extent of the assets securing such Indebtedness;

 

    pari passu in right of payment with any unsecured, unsubordinated Indebtedness of that Guarantor; and

 

    senior in right of payment to any subordinated Indebtedness of that Guarantor.

The obligations of each Guarantor under its Guarantee will be limited as necessary to prevent that Guarantee from constituting a fraudulent conveyance under applicable law.

Tax Considerations

Important federal income tax consequences and special considerations applicable to any series of debt securities may be described in the applicable prospectus supplement.

Denominations, Registration, Payment and Transfer

In the absence of any other specification in the form of debt security for any series, the debt securities of each series shall be issuable in registered form without coupons in denominations of $2,000 and any integral multiple of $1,000 in excess thereof.

Debt securities of any series may be exchanged for debt securities of the same series in other authorized denominations in an equal aggregate principal amount. Debt securities may also be presented for registration of transfer, and the transferee or transferees will receive new debt securities of the same series in authorized denominations in an equal aggregate principal amount. Debt securities to be exchanged or transferred must be presented at the office of the registrar or at the office of any transfer agent designated by us for that purpose with respect to any series of debt securities. Debt securities presented for exchange or registration of transfer must be duly endorsed by, or be accompanied by a written instrument or instruments of transfer in a form satisfactory to us and the trustee and duly executed by, the holder of these debt securities or his attorney who has been duly authorized in writing. We may require payment of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge that may be imposed in connection with any exchange or registration of transfer. We will not assess a service charge.

For a description of the registration and transfer of debt securities held in book-entry form, see “Legal Ownership and Book-Entry Issuance” below.

We will appoint the trustee as registrar and paying agent under the indenture. We may at any time designate additional transfer agents or paying agents with respect to any series of debt securities or from time to time change those designations or approve a change in their locations pursuant to the indenture.

We are not required to exchange or register a transfer of (a) any debt securities of any series for a period of 15 days preceding the first mailing of notice of redemption for those series to be redeemed, or (b) any debt securities selected, called or being called for redemption except for the portion of any debt security to be redeemed in part, which is not redeemed.

The payment of principal of, and any premium and any interest on, debt securities will be made at the office of the trustee for those debt securities in the City of New York or at the office of a paying agent or paying agents that we may designate from time to time. At our option, however, we may pay any interest by check mailed to the address of the person entitled to it as that address appears in the register for those debt securities. The payment of any interest on debt securities will be made to the person in whose name that debt security is registered at the close of business on any record date for that interest, except in the case of defaulted interest.

Repurchase at the Option of Holders

Change of Control

If a Change of Control occurs, each holder of debt securities will have the right to require the Company to repurchase all or any part (equal to $1,000 or an integral multiple thereof) of that holder’s debt securities pursuant to a “Change of Control Offer” on the terms set forth in the indenture. In the Change of Control Offer, the Company will offer to repurchase all or any part of each holder’s debt securities for a repurchase price in cash (the “Change of Control Payment”) equal to 101% of the aggregate principal amount of debt securities repurchased, plus accrued and unpaid interest thereon to the Change of Control Payment Date (as defined below). Within 60 days following any Change of Control, the Company will mail a notice to each holder describing the transaction or transactions that constitute the Change of Control and offering to repurchase debt securities outstanding on a date (the “Change of Control Payment Date”) specified in such notice, which date shall be no earlier than 30 days and no later than 60 days from the date such notice is mailed, pursuant to the procedures required by the indenture and described in such notice. The Company will comply with the requirements of Rule 14e-1 under the Exchange Act and any other securities laws and regulations thereunder to the extent such laws and regulations are applicable in connection with the repurchase of the debt securities as a result of a Change of Control. To the extent that the provisions of any securities laws or regulations conflict with the Change of Control provisions of the indenture, the Company will comply with the applicable securities laws and regulations and will not be deemed to have breached its obligations under the Change of Control provisions of the indenture by virtue of such compliance.

On the Change of Control Payment Date, the Company will, to the extent lawful:

 

  (1) accept for payment all debt securities or portions thereof properly tendered pursuant to the Change of Control Offer;

 

  (2) deposit with the Paying Agent (as defined in the indenture) an amount equal to the Change of Control Payment in respect of all debt securities or portions thereof so tendered; and

 

  (3) deliver or cause to be delivered to the trustee the debt securities so accepted together with an officers’ certificate stating the aggregate principal amount of debt securities or portions thereof being purchased by the Company.

The Paying Agent will promptly mail or wire transfer to each holder of debt securities so tendered the Change of Control Payment for such debt securities, and the trustee will promptly authenticate and mail (or cause to be transferred by book entry) to each holder a new debt security equal in principal amount to any unpurchased portion of the debt securities surrendered, if any; provided that each such new debt security will be in a principal amount of $2,000 or an integral multiple of $1,000 in excess thereof.

The Credit Agreement has significant limitations regarding the purchase of debt securities by the Company, and will also provide that certain Change of Control events with respect to the Company would constitute a default under the Credit Agreement. Any future credit agreements or other debt agreements to which the

Table of Contents

Company becomes a party may contain similar restrictions and provisions. In the event a Change of Control occurs at a time when the Company is prohibited from purchasing debt securities, the Company could seek the consent of its lenders, including lenders under the Credit Agreement, to the purchase of debt securities or could attempt to refinance the borrowings that contain such prohibition. If the Company does not obtain such a consent or repay such borrowings, the Company will remain prohibited from purchasing debt securities. In such case, the Company’s failure to purchase tendered debt securities would constitute an Event of Default under the indenture, which would in turn constitute a default under the Company’s other Indebtedness.

The provisions described above that require the Company to make a Change of Control Offer following a Change of Control will be applicable regardless of whether any other provisions of the indenture are applicable, so long as any debt securities are outstanding. Except as described above with respect to a Change of Control, the indenture does not contain provisions that permit the holders of the debt securities to require that the Company repurchase or redeem the debt securities in the event of a takeover, recapitalization or similar transaction.

The Company will not be required to make a Change of Control Offer upon a Change of Control if a third party makes the Change of Control Offer in the manner, at the times and otherwise in compliance with the requirements set forth in the indenture applicable to a Change of Control Offer made by the Company and purchases all debt securities validly tendered and not withdrawn under such Change of Control Offer.

The definition of Change of Control includes a phrase relating to the direct or indirect sale, transfer, conveyance or other disposition of “all or substantially all” of the properties or assets of the Company and its Restricted Subsidiaries taken as a whole. Although there is a limited body of case law interpreting the phrase “substantially all,” there is no precise established definition of the phrase under applicable law. Accordingly, the ability of a holder of debt securities to require the Company to repurchase such debt securities as a result of a sale, transfer, conveyance or other disposition of less than all of the assets of the Company and its Restricted Subsidiaries taken as a whole to another Person or group may be uncertain. In addition, under a Delaware Chancery Court interpretation of the foregoing definition of “Continuing Directors,” a board of directors may approve, for purposes of such definition, a slate of shareholder-nominated directors without endorsing them, or while simultaneously recommending and endorsing its own slate instead. The foregoing interpretation would permit the Board of Directors to approve a slate of directors that included a majority of dissident directors nominated pursuant to a proxy contest, and the ultimate election of such dissident slate would not constitute a “Change of Control” that would trigger the holders’ right to require the Company to repurchase the holders’ debt securities as described above.

Certain Covenants

Suspension of Covenants Upon Investment Grade Ratings. During any period of time that the debt securities of a series maintain an Investment Grade Rating from both Rating Agencies and no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing (the foregoing conditions being referred to collectively as the “Suspension Condition”), the Company and its Restricted Subsidiaries will not be subject to the covenants (or portions thereof) of the indenture described under the following captions with respect to such series of debt securities:

 

  (A) “—Limitation on Restricted Payments”;

 

  (B) “—Limitation on Indebtedness”;

 

  (C) “—Asset Sales”;

 

  (D) clauses (2) and (4) of “—Consolidation, Merger and Sale of Assets”;

 

  (E) “—Transactions with Affiliates”;

 

  (F) “—Dividend and Other Payment Restrictions Affecting Domestic Subsidiaries”;

 

  (G) “—Limitation on Issuances and Sales of Equity Interests in Restricted Subsidiaries”;

 

-29-


Table of Contents
  (H) clauses (1) and (2) of the first paragraph under “—Designation of Restricted and Unrestricted Subsidiaries” and clauses (1) and (2) of the third paragraph under “—Designation of Restricted and Unrestricted Subsidiaries”; and

 

  (I) “—Repurchase at the Option of Holders”

(collectively, the “Suspended Covenants”).

As a result, if and while the Company meets the Suspension Condition, the debt securities of the applicable series will be entitled to substantially less covenant protection. If the Company and its Restricted Subsidiaries are not subject to the Suspended Covenants with respect to the debt securities of a series for any period of time as a result of the foregoing and, subsequently, one or both Rating Agencies withdraw their Investment Grade Rating or downgrade the Investment Grade Rating assigned to the debt securities of such series such that such debt securities no longer have an Investment Grade Rating from both Rating Agencies, then the Company and each of its Restricted Subsidiaries will thereafter again be subject to the Suspended Covenants. Compliance with the Suspended Covenants with respect to Restricted Payments made after the time of such withdrawal or downgrade will be calculated in accordance with the terms of the covenant described below under “—Limitation on Restricted Payments” as if such covenant had been in effect during the entire period of time from the date of the indenture.

These covenant suspension provisions will continue to be applicable following any such reinstatement. There can be no assurance that the debt securities of a series will ever achieve Investment Grade Ratings or that any such ratings, if achieved, will be maintained.

The indenture contains, among others, the following covenants:

Limitation on Indebtedness. The indenture provides that the Company will not, and will not permit any Restricted Subsidiary to, directly or indirectly, incur any Indebtedness, other than Indebtedness between or among any of the Company and its Restricted Subsidiaries, unless, after giving effect thereto, the Cash Flow Ratio is less than or equal to 7.0 to 1.0.

So long as no Default would be caused thereby, the first paragraph of this covenant will not prohibit the incurrence of any of the following (collectively, “Permitted Debt”):

 

  (1) the incurrence at any time by the Company of Indebtedness under Credit Facilities (and the incurrence by Restricted Subsidiaries of guarantees thereof) in an aggregate principal amount at any one time outstanding pursuant to this clause (1) (with letters of credit being deemed to have a principal amount equal to the maximum potential liability of the Company and its Restricted Subsidiaries thereunder) not to exceed $3,000.0 million, less the aggregate amount of all Net Proceeds of Asset Sales applied by the Company or any Restricted Subsidiary to permanently repay any such Indebtedness pursuant to the mandatory prepayment requirements of the instruments or agreements governing such Indebtedness;

 

  (2) the incurrence of Existing Indebtedness;

 

  (3) the incurrence by the Company and the Guarantors of Indebtedness represented by the debt securities of the applicable series and the related Guarantees to be issued on the date of the issuance of the debt securities under the indenture;

 

  (4) the incurrence by the Company or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries of Indebtedness represented by Capitalized Lease Obligations, mortgage financings or purchase money obligations, in each case, incurred for the purpose of financing all or any part of the purchase price or cost of construction or improvement of property, plant or equipment used in the business of the Company or such Restricted Subsidiary for fixed or capital assets, in an aggregate principal amount, including all Permitted Refinancing Indebtedness incurred to refund, refinance or replace any Indebtedness incurred pursuant to this clause (4), not to exceed $150.0 million at any time outstanding;

Table of Contents
  (5) the incurrence by the Company or any Restricted Subsidiary of Permitted Refinancing Indebtedness in exchange for, or the net proceeds of which are used to refund, refinance or replace Indebtedness (other than intercompany Indebtedness) that was permitted by the indenture to be incurred under the first paragraph of this covenant or clauses (2), (3), (4), (5), (10) or (19) of this paragraph;

 

  (6) the incurrence by the Company or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries of intercompany Indebtedness owing to and held by the Company or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries; provided, however, that:

 

  (a) if the Company or any Guarantor is the obligor on such Indebtedness and such Indebtedness is held by a Person that is not the Company or a Guarantor, such Indebtedness must be unsecured and expressly subordinated to the prior payment in full in cash of all obligations with respect to the debt securities of the applicable series, in the case of the Company, or the Guarantee, in the case of a Guarantor;

 

  (b) Indebtedness owed to the Company or any Guarantor must be evidenced by an unsubordinated promissory note, unless the obligor under such Indebtedness is the Company or a Guarantor; and

 

  (c) (i) any subsequent issuance or transfer of Equity Interests that results in any such Indebtedness being owed to a Person other than the Company or a Restricted Subsidiary and (ii) any sale or other transfer of any such Indebtedness to a Person that is not either the Company or a Restricted Subsidiary shall be deemed, in each case, to constitute an incurrence of such Indebtedness by the Company or such Restricted Subsidiary, as the case may be, that was not permitted by this clause (6);

 

  (7) the issuance of shares of Preferred Stock by any of the Company’s Restricted Subsidiaries to the Company or to a Guarantor; provided that (i) any subsequent issuance or transfer of any Equity Interests that results in such Preferred Stock being held by a Person other than the Company or a Guarantor and (ii) any sale or other transfer of any such Preferred Stock to a Person that is not either the Company or a Guarantor shall be deemed, in each case, to constitute an issuance of such shares of Preferred Stock that was not permitted by this clause (7);

 

  (8) the guarantee by the Company or any of the Restricted Subsidiaries of Indebtedness of the Company or a Restricted Subsidiary that was permitted to be incurred by another provision of this covenant;

 

  (9) the incurrence of Monetization Indebtedness;

 

  (10) the incurrence of Acquired Indebtedness (other than Indebtedness incurred in contemplation of, or in connection with, the transaction or series of related transactions pursuant to which such Person is acquired by or otherwise merged into or consolidated with the Company or any Restricted Subsidiary); provided that, after giving effect to such transaction, either:

 

  (a) the Company would be permitted to incur at least $1.00 of additional Indebtedness pursuant to the Cash Flow Ratio test set forth in the first paragraph of this covenant, or

 

  (b) the Cash Flow Ratio of the Company and its Restricted Subsidiaries would be no higher as a result of such transaction;

 

  (11) the incurrence by the Company or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries of Indebtedness to the extent the net proceeds thereof are promptly deposited to satisfy and discharge the indenture as described below under the caption “Satisfaction and Discharge of the Indenture and the Debt Securities”;

 

  (12) Indebtedness of the Company or any Restricted Subsidiary (i) in connection with surety, performance, appeal or similar bonds, completion guarantees, or similar instruments entered into in the ordinary course of business or from letters of credit or other obligations in respect of property, casualty or liability insurance, self-insurance, workers’ compensation obligations or similar arrangements and (ii) consisting of the financing of insurance premiums or take-or-pay obligations contained in supply arrangements, in each case incurred in the ordinary course of business;

  (13) Indebtedness of the Company or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries arising from the honoring by a bank or other financial institution of a check, draft or similar instrument inadvertently (except in the case of daylight overdrafts, such amount need not be inadvertent) drawn against insufficient funds in the ordinary course of business;

 

  (14) Indebtedness of the Company or any Restricted Subsidiary arising from agreements for indemnification, earnouts or purchase price adjustment obligations or similar obligations, or from guarantees or letters of credit, surety bonds or performance bonds securing any obligation of the Company or a Restricted Subsidiary pursuant to such an agreement, in each case incurred or assumed in connection with the acquisition or disposition of any business, assets or properties;

 

  (15) cash management obligations and Indebtedness incurred in respect of netting services, overdraft protection and similar arrangements;

 

  (16) Indebtedness consisting of obligations under deferred compensation, earnouts or other similar arrangements incurred by the Company or any Restricted Subsidiary in connection with the Transactions or any acquisition not prohibited by the indenture;

 

  (17) Indebtedness under Hedging Obligations; provided that such contracts are not entered into for speculative purposes; or

 

  (18) the incurrence by the Company or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries of additional Indebtedness in an aggregate principal amount (or accreted value, as applicable) at any time outstanding, including all Permitted Refinancing Indebtedness incurred to refund, refinance or replace any Indebtedness incurred pursuant to this clause (18), not to exceed $400.0 million.

For purposes of determining compliance with this covenant, in the event that any proposed Indebtedness meets the criteria of more than one of the categories of Permitted Debt described in clauses (1) through (18) above, or is entitled to be incurred pursuant to the first paragraph of this covenant, the Company will be permitted to classify at the time of its incurrence such item of Indebtedness in any manner that complies with this covenant. Indebtedness under the Credit Agreement outstanding on the date on which debt securities of the applicable series are first issued under the indenture shall be deemed to have been incurred on such date in reliance on the exception provided by clause (1) of the definition of Permitted Debt. In addition, (A) any Indebtedness originally classified as incurred pursuant to clauses (1) through (18) above may later be reclassified by the Company such that it will be deemed as having been incurred pursuant to another of such clauses to the extent that such reclassified Indebtedness could be incurred pursuant to such new clause at the time of such reclassification and (B) any Indebtedness originally classified as incurred pursuant to the first paragraph of this covenant or pursuant to clauses (2) through (18) above may later be reclassified by the Company such that it will be deemed as having been incurred pursuant to such first paragraph or pursuant to another of such clauses to the extent that such reclassified Indebtedness could be incurred pursuant to such first paragraph or such new clause at the time of such reclassification.

Notwithstanding any other provision of this covenant:

 

  (A) the maximum amount of Indebtedness that may be incurred pursuant to this covenant will not be deemed to be exceeded with respect to any outstanding Indebtedness due solely to the result of fluctuations in the exchange rates of currencies or changes in GAAP;

 

  (B) any Indebtedness of a Person existing at the time such Person becomes a Restricted Subsidiary will be deemed to be incurred by such Restricted Subsidiary at the time it becomes a Restricted Subsidiary;

 

  (C) neither the accrual of interest nor the accretion of original issue discount (to the extent provided for when the Indebtedness on which such interest is paid was originally issued) shall be considered an incurrence of Indebtedness, as applicable; and

Table of Contents
  (D) the payment of interest in the form of additional Indebtedness with the same terms and the payment of dividends on Disqualified Stock or Preferred Stock in the form of additional shares of the same class of Disqualified Stock (to the extent provided for when the Indebtedness, Disqualified Stock or Preferred Stock on which such interest or dividend is paid was originally issued) shall not be considered an incurrence of Indebtedness.

The indenture provides that the Company will not incur any Indebtedness that is subordinate or junior in right of payment to any other Indebtedness of the Company unless it is subordinate in right of payment to the debt securities to the same extent. No Guarantor will incur any Indebtedness that is subordinate or junior in right of payment to any other Indebtedness of such Guarantor unless it is subordinate in right of payment to such Guarantor’s Guarantee to the same extent. For purposes of the foregoing, no Indebtedness will be deemed to be subordinated in right of payment to any other Indebtedness of the Company or any Guarantor, as applicable, solely by virtue of being unsecured or by virtue of the fact that the holders of any secured Indebtedness have entered into intercreditor agreements giving one or more of such holders priority over the other holders in the collateral held by them.

Limitation on Restricted Payments. The indenture provides that the Company will not, and will not permit any Restricted Subsidiary to, make any Restricted Payment if (1) at the time of such proposed Restricted Payment, a Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing or will occur as a consequence of such Restricted Payment, (2) the Company would, at the time of such Restricted Payment and after giving pro forma effect thereto, have been prohibited from incurring at least $1.00 of additional Indebtedness pursuant to the Cash Flow Ratio test set forth in the first paragraph of the covenant described above under the caption “—Limitation on Indebtedness,” or (3) immediately after giving effect to such Restricted Payment, the aggregate of all Restricted Payments that have been made since June 30, 2011 would exceed the sum of $100.0 million plus an amount equal to the difference between (i) the Cumulative Cash Flow Credit and (ii) 1.4 multiplied by Cumulative Interest Expense.

For purposes of this “Limitation on Restricted Payments” covenant, the amount of any Restricted Payment, if other than cash, will be based upon Fair Market Value.

The provisions above do not prevent:

 

  (1) the payment of any dividend within 60 days after the date of declaration thereof, if at such date of declaration such payment complied with the above provisions;

 

  (2) Permitted Affiliate Payments;

 

  (3) the retirement, redemption, purchase, defeasance or other acquisition of any shares of the Company’s Capital Stock or warrants, rights or options to acquire Capital Stock of the Company, in exchange for, or out of the proceeds of a sale (within one year before or 180 days after such retirement, redemption, purchase, defeasance or other acquisition) of, other shares of the Company’s Capital Stock or warrants, rights or options to acquire Capital Stock of the Company;

 

  (4) the payment of any dividend by a Restricted Subsidiary to the holders of its common Equity Interests on a pro rata basis;

 

  (5) repurchases of Equity Interests in a cashless transaction deemed to occur upon exercise or vesting of restricted stock, stock options or warrants;

 

  (6) the payment of cash in lieu of the issuance of fractional shares or scrip in connection with the exercise of warrants, options or other securities convertible into or exercisable for Capital Stock of the Company;

 

  (7)

the repurchase, retirement or other acquisition or retirement for value of Capital Stock of the Company held by any future, present or former employee or director of the Company or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries or the estate, heirs or legatees of, or any entity controlled by, any such employee or director,

  pursuant to any management equity plan or stock option plan or any other management or employee benefit plan or agreement in connection with the termination of such person’s employment for any reason (including by reason of death or disability); provided, however, that the aggregate Restricted Payments made under this clause (7) does not exceed in any calendar year the sum of (A) $1.5 million (with unused amounts in any calendar year being carried over to succeeding calendar years subject to a maximum (without giving effect to the following proviso) of $5.0 million in any calendar year) and (B) the cash proceeds of key man life insurance policies on the life of any such person received by the Company and its Restricted Subsidiaries after the date of the indenture;

 

  (8) any Restricted Payment so long as immediately after the making of such Restricted Payment, the Cash Flow Ratio does not exceed 3.25:1.00; or

 

  (9) Restricted Payments made in connection with the Transactions.

For purposes of determining the aggregate permissible amount of Restricted Payments in accordance with clause (3) of the first paragraph of this covenant, all amounts expended pursuant to clause (1) of this paragraph will be included and all amounts expended or received pursuant to clauses (2) through (9) of this paragraph will be excluded; provided, however, that amounts paid pursuant to clause (1) of this paragraph will be included only to the extent that such amounts were not previously included in calculating Restricted Payments.

If the Company or a Restricted Subsidiary makes a Restricted Payment that at the time of the making of such Restricted Payment would be, in the Company’s good faith determination, permitted under the requirements of this covenant, such Restricted Payment will be deemed to have been made in compliance with this covenant notwithstanding any subsequent adjustments made in good faith to the Company’s financial statements affecting the calculations set forth above for any period.

For the purposes of the provisions above, the net proceeds from the issuance of shares of the Company’s Capital Stock upon conversion of Indebtedness will be deemed to be an amount equal to the accreted value of such Indebtedness on the date of such conversion and the additional consideration, if any, the Company receives upon such conversion, minus any cash payment on account of fractional shares (such consideration, if in property other than cash, to be determined by our Board of Directors, whose good faith determination will be conclusive).

Asset Sales. The indenture provides that the Company will not, and will not permit any of its Restricted Subsidiaries to, consummate an Asset Sale unless:

 

  (1) the Company (or the Restricted Subsidiary, as the case may be) receives consideration at the time of such Asset Sale at least equal to the Fair Market Value of the assets or Equity Interests issued or sold or otherwise disposed of; provided that this clause (1) shall not apply to an Asset Sale resulting solely from a foreclosure or sale by a third party upon assets or property subject to a Lien not prohibited by the indenture;

 

  (2) where such Fair Market Value exceeds $100.0 million, the Company’s determination of such Fair Market Value is set forth in an officers’ certificate delivered to the trustee; and

 

  (3) at least 75% of the consideration therefor received by the Company or such Restricted Subsidiary is in the form of cash, Cash Equivalents or Replacement Assets or a combination thereof. For purposes of this provision, each of the following shall be deemed to be Cash Equivalents:

 

  (a) any liabilities (as shown on the Company’s or such Restricted Subsidiary’s most recent balance sheet, or would be shown on the Company’s or such Restricted Subsidiary’s balance sheet on the date of such Asset Sale) of the Company or any Restricted Subsidiary (other than contingent liabilities, Indebtedness that is by its terms subordinated to the debt securities of each series then outstanding or any Guarantee and liabilities to the extent owed to the Company or any Affiliate of the Company) that are assumed by the transferee of any such assets pursuant to a written agreement that releases the Company or such Restricted Subsidiary from further liability therefor; and

 

-34-


Table of Contents
  (b) any securities, notes or other obligations received by the Company or any such Restricted Subsidiary from such transferee that are converted (including by way of any Monetization Transaction) by the Company or such Restricted Subsidiary into cash (to the extent of the cash received in that conversion) within 180 days of such Asset Sale.

The Company or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries may use the Net Proceeds of any Asset Sale in any manner that is not prohibited by the indenture. The indenture does not contain any requirement that the proceeds of any Asset Sale be applied to redeem debt securities or any other Indebtedness or make any offer to repurchase the debt securities or any other Indebtedness.

Transactions with Affiliates. The indenture provides that the Company will not, and will not permit any of its Restricted Subsidiaries to, effect any transaction with any Affiliate of the Company that is not a Restricted Subsidiary, having a value, or for consideration having a value, in excess of $35.0 million unless the Company’s or such Restricted Subsidiary’s Board of Directors (or the person duly authorized to perform similar functions) shall make a good faith determination that the terms of such transaction are, taken as a whole, no less favorable to the Company or such Restricted Subsidiary, as the case may be, than would at the time be obtainable for a comparable transaction in arm’s-length dealing with an unrelated third party; provided, however, that this provision shall not apply to:

 

  (1) overhead and other ordinary course allocations of costs and services on a reasonable basis;

 

  (2) allocations of tax liabilities and other tax-related items among the Company and its Affiliates based principally upon the financial income, taxable income, credits and other amounts directly related to the respective parties, to the extent that the share of such liabilities and other items allocable to the Company and its Restricted Subsidiaries shall not exceed the amount that such Persons would have been responsible for as direct taxpayers;

 

  (3) Permitted Investments and Restricted Payments permitted under “—Limitation on Restricted Payments”;

 

  (4) matters described in or contemplated by the Form 10 of the Company, as amended or modified from time to time, or other reports filed by the Company with the Commission;

 

  (5) contracts or arrangements between the Company and/or any of its Subsidiaries and any of its Affiliates regarding coordination and/or joint defense of any litigation or any other action, suit, proceeding, claim or dispute before any courts, arbitrators or governmental authority;

 

  (6) contracts or arrangements to sell or buy advertising between the Company and/or any of its Subsidiaries and any of its Affiliates;

 

  (7) affiliation agreements or arrangements between the Company and/or its Subsidiaries and any of its Affiliates;

 

  (8) contracts or arrangements entered into in the ordinary course of business providing for the acquisition or provision of goods or services (including guarantees otherwise permissible under any Credit Facility, leases or licenses of property, equipment, facilities and other real or personal property) (i) between the Company or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries and any Unrestricted Subsidiary or (ii) under which the Company or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries may be jointly and severally liable with any of its Unrestricted Subsidiaries as to which costs are allocated based on cost, usage or other reasonable method of allocation (or are otherwise immaterial);

 

  (9) contracts or arrangements between the Company and/or any of its Subsidiaries and any Affiliates regarding transponder usage rights;

 

  (10) licensing agreements or arrangements or film and/or content programming allocation contracts or arrangements between the Company and/or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries and any Unrestricted Subsidiary;

  (11) contracts or arrangements between the Company and/or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries and any Unrestricted Subsidiary regarding the use of intellectual property;

 

  (12) contracts or arrangements between the Company and/or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries and any Unrestricted Subsidiary for the purpose of securing (a) production or production-related arrangements or (b) arrangements for the compensation of talent through third-party intermediaries;

 

  (13) the Distribution Transaction Agreements (as defined in the Credit Agreement);

  (16) amendments, modifications, renewals or replacements from time to time of any of the contracts, arrangements, leases, services or other matters referred to or contemplated by any of the foregoing items.

Limitation on Liens. The indenture provides that the Company will not, and will not permit any Restricted Subsidiary to, directly or indirectly, create, incur, assume or suffer to exist any Lien of any kind, except for Permitted Liens, on or with respect to any of its property or assets, whether owned at the date of the indenture or thereafter acquired, unless (x) in the case of any Lien securing Indebtedness that is subordinated in right of payment to the debt securities, the debt securities are secured by a Lien on such property, assets or proceeds that is senior in priority to such Lien and (y) in the case of any other Lien, the debt securities are equally and ratably secured.

Dividend and Other Payment Restrictions Affecting Domestic Subsidiaries. The indenture provides that the Company will not, and will not permit any of its Domestic Subsidiaries to, directly or indirectly, create or permit to exist or become effective any consensual encumbrance or restriction on the ability of any Domestic Subsidiary to:

 

  (1) pay dividends or make any other distributions on its Capital Stock (or with respect to any other interest or participation in, or measured by, its profits) to the Company or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries or pay any Indebtedness owed to the Company or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries;

 

  (2) make loans or advances to the Company or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries; or

 

  (3) transfer any of its properties or assets to the Company or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries.

However, the preceding restrictions will not apply to encumbrances or restrictions:

 

  (1) existing under, by reason of or with respect to the Credit Agreement, Existing Indebtedness or any other agreements in effect on the date of initial issuance of debt securities of the applicable series and any amendments, modifications, restatements, renewals, extensions, supplements, refundings, replacements or refinancings thereof, provided that the encumbrances and restrictions in any such amendments, modifications, restatements, renewals, extensions, supplements, refundings, replacements or refinancings are not materially more restrictive, taken as a whole, than those contained in the Credit Agreement, Existing Indebtedness or such other agreements, as the case may be, as in effect on the date of initial issuance of debt securities of the applicable series;

 

  (2) set forth in the indenture, the debt securities and the Guarantees;

 

  (3) existing under, by reason of or with respect to applicable law, rule, regulation or order;

 

-36-


Table of Contents
  (4) with respect to any Person or the property or assets of a Person acquired by the Company or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries existing at the time of such acquisition and not incurred in connection with or in contemplation of such acquisition, which encumbrance or restriction is not applicable to any Person or the properties or assets of any Person, other than the Person, or the property or assets of the Person, so acquired and any amendments, modifications, restatements, renewals, extensions, supplements, refundings, replacements or refinancings thereof, provided that the encumbrances and restrictions in any such amendments, modifications, restatements, renewals, extensions, supplements, refundings, replacements, or refinancings are not materially more restrictive, taken as a whole, than those in effect on the date of the acquisition;

 

  (5) in the case of clause (3) of the first paragraph of this covenant:

 

  (A) that restrict in a customary manner the subletting, assignment or transfer of any property or asset that is a lease, license, conveyance or contract or similar property or asset;

 

  (B) existing by virtue of any transfer of, agreement to transfer, option or right with respect to, or Lien on, any property or assets of the Company or any Restricted Subsidiary thereof not otherwise prohibited by the indenture; or

 

  (C) arising or agreed to in the ordinary course of business, not relating to any Indebtedness, and that do not, individually or in the aggregate, materially detract from the value of property or assets of the Company or any Restricted Subsidiary thereof;

 

  (6) existing under, by reason of or with respect to any agreement for the sale or other disposition of all or substantially all of the Capital Stock of, or property and assets of, a Restricted Subsidiary that restrict distributions by that Restricted Subsidiary pending such sale or other disposition;

 

  (7) restrictions on cash or other deposits or net worth imposed by customers or lessors or required by insurance, surety or bonding companies, in each case under contracts, leases or other agreements entered into in the ordinary course of business; and

 

  (8) existing under, by reason of or with respect to customary supermajority voting provisions and customary provisions with respect to the disposition or distribution of assets or property, in each case contained in joint venture, partnership, or limited liability company agreements.

Limitation on Issuances and Sales of Equity Interests in Restricted Subsidiaries. The indenture provides that the Company will not transfer, convey, sell, lease or otherwise dispose of, and will not permit any of its Restricted Subsidiaries to issue, transfer, convey, sell, lease or otherwise dispose of, any Equity Interests in any Restricted Subsidiary to any Person (other than the Company or a Restricted Subsidiary or shares of its Capital Stock constituting directors’ qualifying shares or issuances of shares of Capital Stock of Foreign Restricted Subsidiaries to foreign nationals, to the extent required by applicable law), except:

 

  (1) if, immediately after giving effect to such issuance, transfer, conveyance, sale, lease or other disposition, such Restricted Subsidiary would no longer constitute a Restricted Subsidiary and any Investment in such Person remaining after giving effect to such issuance or sale would have been permitted to be made under the covenant described above under the caption “—Limitation on Restricted Payments” if made on the date of such issuance or sale; or

 

  (2) sales of Equity Interests of a Restricted Subsidiary by the Company or a Restricted Subsidiary; provided that the Company or such Restricted Subsidiary complies with the covenant described above under “—Asset Sales.”

Guarantees. The indenture provides that the Company will not permit any of its Restricted Subsidiaries (other than any Foreign Restricted Subsidiary (excluding any RMH GE Entity) or any Insignificant Subsidiary), directly or indirectly, to guarantee or pledge any assets to secure the payment of any other Indebtedness of the Company or any of the Company’s other Restricted Subsidiaries unless such Restricted Subsidiary (x) is a Guarantor under the indenture or (y) becomes a Guarantor under the indenture and simultaneously executes and

 

-37-


Table of Contents

delivers a supplemental indenture providing for the Guarantee of the payment of the debt securities by such Restricted Subsidiary, provided that such Guarantee shall be senior to or pari passu with such Subsidiary’s guarantee of such other Indebtedness. In addition, the indenture provides that, in the event that any Restricted Subsidiary that is an Insignificant Subsidiary ceases to be an Insignificant Subsidiary, then such Restricted Subsidiary must become a Guarantor and execute a supplemental indenture and, if requested, deliver an opinion of counsel to the trustee. The form of the Guarantee is attached as an exhibit to the indenture.

A Guarantor may sell or otherwise dispose of all or substantially all of its assets to, or consolidate with or merge with or into (whether or not such Guarantor is the surviving Person), another Person, other than the Company or another Guarantor, provided that immediately after giving effect to that transaction, no Default or Event of Default exists.

The Guarantee of a Guarantor will be released:

 

  (1) in connection with any sale or other disposition of all of the Capital Stock of that Guarantor to a Person that is not (either before or after giving effect to such transaction) a Restricted Subsidiary, if the sale of all such Capital Stock of that Guarantor complies with the covenant described above under the caption “—Asset Sales”;

 

  (2) if the Company properly designates any Restricted Subsidiary that is a Guarantor as an Unrestricted Subsidiary under the indenture; or

 

  (3) upon the release or discharge of the guarantee (including the guarantee under the Credit Agreement) which resulted in the creation of such Guarantee pursuant to this covenant (except a discharge or release by or as a result of payment under such Guarantee); provided that such Guarantor does not have any preferred stock outstanding at such time that is not held by the Company or any Guarantor.

Designation of Restricted and Unrestricted Subsidiaries. The indenture provides that, unless designated as an Unrestricted Subsidiary, each newly acquired or created Subsidiary or a Restricted Subsidiary shall be a Restricted Subsidiary. Any Restricted Subsidiary may be designated by the Company as an Unrestricted Subsidiary; provided that:

 

  (1) any guarantee by the Company or any Restricted Subsidiary thereof of any Indebtedness of the Subsidiary being so designated will be deemed to be an incurrence of Indebtedness by the Company or such Restricted Subsidiary (or both, if applicable) at the time of such designation, and such incurrence of Indebtedness would be permitted under the covenant described above under the caption “—Limitation on Indebtedness”;

 

  (2) the aggregate Fair Market Value of all outstanding Investments owned by the Company and its Restricted Subsidiaries in the Subsidiary being so designated (including any guarantee by the Company or any Restricted Subsidiary of any Indebtedness of such Subsidiary) will be deemed to be a Restricted Investment made as of the time of such designation and that such Investment would be permitted under the covenant described above under the caption “—Limitation on Restricted Payments”;

 

  (3) such Subsidiary does not hold any Liens (other than Permitted Liens) on any property of the Company or any Restricted Subsidiary thereof; and

 

  (4) no Default or Event of Default would be in existence following such designation.

Any designation of a Restricted Subsidiary as an Unrestricted Subsidiary shall be evidenced to the trustee by filing with the trustee an officers’ certificate certifying that such designation complied with the preceding conditions and was permitted by the indenture.

 

-38-


Table of Contents

The indenture provides that the Company may at any time designate any Unrestricted Subsidiary to be a Restricted Subsidiary; provided that:

 

  (1) such designation shall be deemed to be an incurrence of Indebtedness by a Restricted Subsidiary of any outstanding Indebtedness of such Unrestricted Subsidiary and such designation shall only be permitted if such Indebtedness is permitted under the covenant described under the caption “—Limitation on Indebtedness,” calculated on a pro forma basis as if such designation had occurred at the beginning of the applicable four-quarter reference period;

 

  (2) all outstanding Investments owned by such Unrestricted Subsidiary will be deemed to be made as of the time of such designation and such Investments shall only be permitted if such Investments would be permitted under the covenant described above under the caption “—Limitation on Restricted Payments”;

 

  (3) all Liens upon property or assets of such Unrestricted Subsidiary existing at the time of such designation would be permitted under the caption “—Limitation on Liens”; and

 

  (4) no Default or Event of Default would be in existence following such designation.

Reports. The indenture provides that the Company shall supply without cost to each holder, and file with the trustee (if not otherwise filed with the trustee pursuant to the indenture) within 30 days after the Company is required to file the same with the Commission, copies of the annual reports and quarterly reports and of the information, documents and other reports which the Company may be required to file with the Commission pursuant to Section 13(a), 13(c) or 15(d) of the Exchange Act. If the Company is not required to file with the Commission such reports and other information referred to in the immediately preceding sentence, the Company shall furnish without cost to each holder and file with the trustee (i) within 140 days after the end of each fiscal year, annual reports containing the information required to be contained in Items 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 8 and 9 of Form 10-K promulgated under the Exchange Act, or substantially the same information required to be contained in comparable items of any successor form, and (ii) within 75 days after the end of each of the first three fiscal quarters of each fiscal year, quarterly reports containing the information required to be contained in Form 10-Q, promulgated under the Exchange Act, or substantially the same information required to be contained in any successor form. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company will be deemed to have furnished such reports referred to above to the holders and the trustee if the Company has filed such reports with the Commission via the EDGAR filing system and such reports are publicly available; provided, however, that the trustee will have no responsibilities whatsoever to determine whether such filing has occurred.

At any time when the Company is not subject to Section 13 or 15(d) of the Exchange Act, upon the request of a holder of a restricted debt security, the Company shall promptly furnish or cause to be furnished such information as is specified pursuant to Rule 144A(d)(4) under the Securities Act (or any successor provision thereto) to such holder or to a prospective purchaser of such restricted debt security designated by such holder, as the case may be, in order to permit compliance by such holder with Rule 144A under the Securities Act.

Consolidation, Merger and Sale of Assets. The Company may not consolidate or merge with or into, or sell, assign, transfer, lease, convey or otherwise dispose of all or substantially all of its assets to, any Person, unless: (1) the Person formed by or surviving any such consolidation or merger (if other than the Company) or to which such sale, assignment, transfer, lease, conveyance or disposition is made is a corporation organized and existing under the laws of the United States, any state thereof or the District of Columbia, and assumes by a supplemental indenture all of the obligations of the Company under the debt securities and the indenture, (2) immediately before and immediately after such transaction, and after giving effect thereto, no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, (3) each Guarantor, unless such Guarantor is the Person with which the Company has entered into a transaction under this covenant, shall have by amendment to its applicable Guarantee confirmed that such Guarantee shall apply to the obligations of the Company or the surviving Person in accordance with the debt securities and the indenture, and (4) immediately after such transaction, and after giving effect thereto, the Person formed by or surviving any such consolidation or merger, or to which such sale, assignment, transfer,

Table of Contents

lease or conveyance or disposition is made, would be able to incur at least $1.00 of additional Indebtedness pursuant to the Cash Flow Ratio test set forth in the first paragraph under the covenant described under the caption “—Limitation on Indebtedness.”

Events of Default

The following are Events of Default with respect to any series of debt securities under the indenture:

 

  (1) default for 30 days in payment of interest on any of the debt securities of that series;

 

  (2) default in payment of principal of (or premium, if any, on) any of the debt securities of that series at maturity, upon acceleration or otherwise;

 

  (3) failure to comply with any other covenant or agreement of the Company or any Restricted Subsidiary under the indenture in respect of debt securities of that series, continued for 60 days (or, with respect to certain covenants or agreements, 30 days) after written notice as provided in the indenture;

 

  (4) default or defaults under any mortgage, indenture or instrument that secures or evidences any Indebtedness for money borrowed or guaranteed by the Company or a Restricted Subsidiary in an aggregate amount of $50.0 million or more (but excluding any Indebtedness for the deferred purchase price of property or services owed to the Person providing such property or services as to which the Company or such Restricted Subsidiary is contesting its obligation to pay the same in good faith and by proper proceedings and for which the Company or such Restricted Subsidiary has established appropriate reserves) which result from the failure to pay such Indebtedness at final maturity or which has resulted in the acceleration of such Indebtedness;

 

  (5) the entry of a final judgment or final judgments for the payment of money by a court or courts of competent jurisdiction against the Company or any Restricted Subsidiary in an aggregate amount exceeding $50.0 million, which remain undischarged and unbonded for a period (during which execution has not been effectively stayed) of 60 days or as to which an enforcement proceeding has been commenced by any creditor;

 

  (6) except as permitted by the indenture, the Guarantee of any Subsidiary that is not an Insignificant Subsidiary Guaranteeing debt securities of that series shall be held in any judicial proceeding to be unenforceable or invalid or shall cease for any reason to be in full force and effect or any such Guarantor, or any Person acting on behalf of any such Guarantor, shall deny or disaffirm in writing its obligations under its Guarantee Guaranteeing debt securities of that series; and

 

  (7) certain events of bankruptcy or insolvency with respect to the Company, any Guarantor that is not an Insignificant Subsidiary or any Significant Subsidiary of the Company (or any Restricted Subsidiaries that together would constitute a Significant Subsidiary).

If an Event of Default (other than as specified in clause (7) above) occurs and is continuing with respect to debt securities of any series, either the trustee or the holders of not less than 25% in aggregate principal amount of the outstanding debt securities of such series, by written notice to the Company (and to the trustee if such notice is given by the holders), may declare all the unpaid principal of and interest on the debt securities of such series to be due and payable as provided in the indenture. Upon a declaration of acceleration, such principal and accrued interest will be due and payable 10 days after receipt by the Company of such written notice. No action on the part of the trustee or any holder of such debt securities is required for such acceleration if an Event of Default specified in clause (7) above has occurred and is continuing with respect to the Company. Any Event of Default with respect to one series of debt securities is not necessarily an Event of Default for another series.

The holders of at least a majority in principal amount of the debt securities of any series may rescind an acceleration and its consequences with respect to such series if (1) all existing Events of Default, other than the nonpayment of principal of or interest on the debt securities of such series which have become due solely because of the acceleration, have been cured or waived and (2) the rescission would not conflict with any judgment or decree of a court of competent jurisdiction.

 

-40-


Table of Contents

A declaration of acceleration by holders of debt securities of any series because of an Event of Default specified in clause (4) of the third preceding paragraph would be automatically annulled if the Indebtedness referred to therein were discharged, or the holders thereof rescinded their declaration of acceleration referred to therein, within 30 days after the acceleration of the debt securities of such series and no other Event of Default had occurred and not been cured or waived during such period. The holders of a majority in principal amount of the debt securities of any series also have the right to waive certain past defaults under the indenture with respect to such series.

No holder of debt securities of any series issued under the indenture has any right to institute any proceeding with respect to debt securities of such series, the indenture or for any remedy thereunder, unless (1) such holder has previously given to the trustee written notice of a continuing Event of Default under the indenture, (2) the holders of at least 25% in principal amount of the outstanding debt securities of such series have made written request and offered indemnity reasonably satisfactory to the trustee to institute such proceeding as the trustee under the indenture, (3) the trustee has not received from the holders of a majority in principal amount of the outstanding debt securities of such series a direction inconsistent with such request, and (4) the trustee has failed to institute such proceeding within 60 days after receipt of such notice. Such limitations do not apply, however, to a suit instituted by a holder of a debt security for the enforcement of payment of the principal of or interest on such debt security on or after the respective due dates expressed in such debt security.

During the existence of an Event of Default, the trustee is required to exercise such rights and powers vested in it under the indenture and use the same degree of care and skill in its exercise thereof as a prudent Person would exercise under the circumstances in the conduct of such Person’s own affairs. Subject to the provisions of the indenture relating to the duties of the trustee, in case an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, the trustee is not under any obligation to exercise any of its rights or powers under the indenture at the request or direction of any of the holders unless such holders have offered to the trustee security or indemnity reasonably satisfactory to it. Subject to such provisions for the indemnification of the trustee, the holders of a majority in principal amount of the debt securities of each series affected, voting as a separate class, have the right to direct the time, method and place of conducting any proceeding for any remedy available to the trustee, or exercising any trust or power conferred on the trustee with respect to the debt securities of that series under the indenture.

The Company is required to furnish to the trustee an annual statement as to the performance by the Company of its obligations under the indenture and as to any default in such performance.

Defeasance

Unless otherwise specified in the applicable supplemental indenture, the Company at any time may terminate all of its and the Guarantors’ respective obligations with respect to the debt securities of any series (“defeasance”), except for certain obligations, including those regarding the Defeasance Trust (as defined below) and obligations to register the transfer or exchange of the debt securities, to replace mutilated, destroyed, lost or stolen debt securities and to maintain agencies in respect of the debt securities. Unless otherwise specified in the applicable supplemental indenture, the Company may also at any time terminate all obligations under the covenants set forth in the indenture with respect to any series of debt securities, which are described under “— Certain Covenants” above, and any omission to comply with such obligations will not constitute a Default or an Event of Default (“covenant defeasance”).

In order to exercise either defeasance or covenant defeasance, (1) the Company must irrevocably deposit in trust, for the benefit of the holders, with the trustee money or government obligations, or a combination thereof, in such amounts as will be sufficient to pay the principal of and premium, if any, and interest on the debt securities of the series being defeased to redemption or maturity (the “Defeasance Trust”), (2) the Company must deliver opinions of counsel to the effect that the holders will not recognize income, gain or loss for federal income tax purposes as a result of such defeasance or covenant defeasance and will be subject to federal income tax on the same amounts, in the same manner and at the same times as would have been the case if such

 

-41-


Table of Contents

defeasance or covenant defeasance had not occurred (in the case of defeasance, such opinion must refer to and be based upon a ruling of the Internal Revenue Service or a change in applicable federal income tax laws), and (3) the Company must comply with certain other conditions.

Satisfaction and Discharge of the Indenture, the Debt Securities and the Guarantees

The indenture will cease to be of further effect (except as to surviving rights of registration of transfer or exchange of debt securities, as expressly provided for in the indenture) as to all outstanding debt securities of any series and Guarantees when either (1) all such debt securities theretofore authenticated and delivered (except lost, stolen or destroyed debt securities which have been replaced or paid) have been delivered to the trustee for cancellation and the Company has paid all sums payable by the Company under the indenture or (2) all such debt securities not theretofore delivered to the trustee for cancellation (a) have become due and payable, or (b) will become due and payable within one year, and the Company has irrevocably deposited or caused to be deposited with the trustee funds in an amount sufficient to pay the entire indebtedness on such debt securities not theretofore delivered to the trustee for cancellation, for principal and interest to the date of deposit (if such debt securities are then due and payable) or to the maturity date, and the Company has paid all other sums payable by the Company under the indenture.

Modification and Waiver

Modifications and amendments of the indenture or of debt securities of any series or the Guarantees issued thereunder may be made by the Company and the trustee with the consent of the holders of not less than a majority in aggregate principal amount of the outstanding debt securities of each series affected by the proposed modifications or amendments; provided, however, that no such modification or amendment may, without the consent of the holders of all then outstanding debt securities of the affected series,

 

    change the stated maturity of the principal of, or any installment of interest on, a debt security of that series;

 

    reduce the principal amount of or interest on a debt security of that series;

 

    change the coin or currency in which a debt security of that series or the interest thereon is payable;

 

    impair the right to institute suit for the enforcement of any payment on or with respect to a debt security or a Guarantee of that series after the stated maturity;

 

    release any Guarantor from any of its obligations under its Guarantee or the indenture, except in accordance with the terms of the indenture;

 

    amend, change or modify the obligation of the Company to make and consummate a Change of Control Offer in the event of a Change of Control in accordance with the covenant described above under the caption “—Repurchase at the Option of Holders—Change of Control” after such Change of Control has occurred, including amending, changing or modifying any definition relating thereto;

 

    reduce the percentage in principal amount of the debt securities of that series and any other affected series of debt securities, taken separately or together, as the case may be, the approval of whose holders is needed to waive compliance with certain provisions of the indenture or to waive certain defaults; or

 

    modify any of the provisions relating to supplemental indentures requiring the consent of holders or relating to the waiver of past defaults, except to increase the percentage of outstanding debt securities of that series required for such actions or to provide that certain other provisions of the indenture cannot be modified or waived without the consent of the holder of each debt security affected thereby.

The holders of a majority in aggregate principal amount of the debt securities of any series may waive compliance with certain restrictive covenants and provisions of the indenture with respect to that series.

LEGAL OWNERSHIP AND BOOK-ENTRY ISSUANCE

In this section, we describe special considerations that will apply to registered debt securities issued in global — i.e., book-entry form. First we describe the difference between legal ownership and indirect ownership of registered debt securities. Then we describe special provisions that apply to global debt securities.

Who Is the Legal Owner of a Registered Debt Security?

Each debt security in registered form will be represented either by a certificate issued in definitive form to a particular investor or by one or more global securities representing the entire issuance of debt securities. We refer to those who have debt securities registered in their own names, on the books that we or the trustee or other agent maintain for this purpose, as the “holders” of those debt securities. These persons are the legal holders of the debt securities. We refer to those who, indirectly through others, own beneficial interests in debt securities that are not registered in their own names as indirect owners of those debt securities. As we discuss below, indirect owners are not legal holders, and investors in debt securities issued in book-entry form or in street name will be indirect owners.

Book-Entry Owners

We will issue each debt security in book-entry form only. This means debt securities will be represented by one or more global securities registered in the name of a financial institution that holds them as depositary on behalf of other financial institutions that participate in the depositary’s book-entry system. These participating institutions, in turn, hold beneficial interests in the debt securities on behalf of themselves or their customers.

Under each indenture, only the person in whose name a debt security is registered is recognized as the holder of that debt security. Consequently, for debt securities issued in global form, we will recognize only the depositary as the holder of the debt securities and we will make all payments on the debt securities, including deliveries of any property other than cash, to the depositary. The depositary passes along the payments it receives to its participants, which in turn pass the payments along to their customers who are the beneficial owners. The depositary and its participants do so under agreements they have made with one another or with their customers; they are not obligated to do so under the terms of the debt securities.

As a result, investors will not own debt securities directly. Instead, they will own beneficial interests in a global security, through a bank, broker or other financial institution that participates in the depositary’s book-entry system or holds an interest through a participant. As long as the debt securities are issued in global form, investors will be indirect owners, and not holders, of the debt securities.

Street Name Owners

In the future we may terminate a global security or issue debt securities initially in non-global form. In these cases, investors may choose to hold their debt securities in their own names or in street name. Debt securities held by an investor in street name would be registered in the name of a bank, broker or other financial institution that the investor chooses, and the investor would hold only a beneficial interest in those debt securities through an account he or she maintains at that institution.

For debt securities held in street name, we will recognize only the intermediary banks, brokers and other financial institutions in whose names the debt securities are registered as the holders of those debt securities and we will make all payments on those debt securities, including deliveries of any property other than cash, to them. These institutions pass along the payments they receive to their customers who are the beneficial owners, but only because they agree to do so in their customer agreements or because they are legally required to do so. Investors who hold debt securities in street name will be indirect owners, not holders, of those debt securities.

Table of Contents

Legal Holders

Our obligations as well as the obligations of the trustee under any indenture and any other third parties employed by us, the trustee or any of those agents, run only to the holders of the debt securities. We have no obligations to investors who hold beneficial interests in global securities, in street name or by any other indirect means. This will be the case whether an investor chooses to be an indirect owner of a debt security or has no choice because we are issuing the debt securities only in global form.

For example, once we make a payment or give a notice to the holder, we have no further responsibility for that payment or notice even if that holder is required, under agreements with depositary participants or customers or by law, to pass it along to the indirect owners but does not do so. Similarly, if we want to obtain the approval of the holders for any purpose — e.g., to amend the indenture for a series of debt securities or to relieve us of the consequences of a default or of our obligation to comply with a particular provision of an indenture — we would seek the approval only from the holders, and not the indirect owners, of the relevant debt securities. Whether and how the holders contact the indirect owners is up to the holders.

When we refer to “you” in this prospectus, we mean those who invest in the debt securities being offered by this prospectus, whether they are the holders or only indirect owners of those debt securities. When we refer to “your debt securities” in this prospectus, we mean the debt securities in which you will hold a direct or indirect interest.

Special Considerations for Indirect Owners

If you hold debt securities through a bank, broker or other financial institution, either in book-entry form or in street name, you should check with your own institution to find out:

 

    how it handles securities payments and notices;

 

    whether it imposes fees or charges;

 

    whether and how you can instruct it to exchange or convert a debt security for or into other property;

 

    how it would handle a request for the holders’ consent, if ever required;

 

    whether and how you can instruct it to send you debt securities registered in your own name so you can be a holder, if that is permitted in the future;

 

    how it would exercise rights under the debt securities if there were a default or other event triggering the need for holders to act to protect their interests; and

 

    if the debt securities are in book-entry form, how the depositary’s rules and procedures will affect these matters.

What Is a Global Security?

We will issue each debt security in book-entry form only. Each debt security issued in book-entry form will be represented by a global security that we deposit with and register in the name of one or more financial institutions or clearing systems, or their nominees, which we select. A financial institution or clearing system that we select for any debt security for this purpose is called the “depositary” for that debt security. A debt security will usually have only one depositary but it may have more.

Each series of debt securities will have one or more of the following as the depositaries:

 

    The Depository Trust Company, New York, New York, which is known as “DTC”;

 

    a financial institution holding the debt securities on behalf of Euroclear Bank S.A./N.V., as operator of the Euroclear system, which is known as “Euroclear”;

 

-45-


Table of Contents
    a financial institution holding the debt securities on behalf of Clearstream Banking, société anonyme, Luxembourg, which is known as “Clearstream”; and

 

    any other clearing system or financial institution named in the applicable prospectus supplement.

The depositaries named above may also be participants in one another’s systems. Thus, for example, if DTC is the depositary for a global security, investors may hold beneficial interests in that security through Euroclear or Clearstream, as DTC participants. The depositary or depositaries for your debt securities will be named in your prospectus supplement; if none is named, the depositary will be DTC.

A global security may represent one or any other number of individual debt securities. Generally, all debt securities represented by the same global security will have the same terms. We may, however, issue a global security that represents multiple debt securities of the same kind that have different terms and are issued at different times. We call this kind of global security a master global security. Your prospectus supplement will not indicate whether your debt securities are represented by a master global security.

A global security may not be transferred to or registered in the name of anyone other than the depositary or its nominee, unless special termination situations arise. We describe those situations below under “— Holder’s Option to Obtain a Non-Global Security; Special Situations When a Global Security Will Be Terminated.” As a result of these arrangements, the depositary, or its nominee, will be the sole registered owner and holder of all debt securities represented by a global security, and investors will be permitted to own only indirect interests in a global security. Indirect interests must be held by means of an account with a broker, bank or other financial institution that in turn has an account with the depositary or with another institution that does. Thus, an investor whose debt security is represented by a global security will not be a holder of the debt security, but only an indirect owner of an interest in the global security.

If the prospectus supplement for a particular debt security indicates that the debt security will be issued in global form only, then the debt security will be represented by a global security at all times unless and until the global security is terminated. We describe the situations in which this can occur below under “— Holder’s Option to Obtain a Non-Global Security; Special Situations When a Global Security Will Be Terminated.” If termination occurs, we may issue the debt securities through another book-entry clearing system or decide that the debt securities may no longer be held through any book-entry clearing system.

Special Considerations for Global Securities

As an indirect owner, an investor’s rights relating to a global security will be governed by the account rules of the depositary and those of the investor’s financial institution or other intermediary through which it holds its interest (e.g., Euroclear or Clearstream, if DTC is the depositary), as well as general laws relating to securities transfers. We do not recognize this type of investor or any intermediary as a holder of debt securities and instead deal only with the depositary that holds the global security.

If debt securities are issued only in the form of a global security, an investor should be aware of the following:

 

    An investor cannot cause the debt securities to be registered in his or her own name, and cannot obtain non-global certificates for his or her interest in the debt securities, except in the special situations we describe below;

 

    An investor will be an indirect holder and must look to his or her own bank or broker for payments on the debt securities and protection of his or her legal rights relating to the debt securities, as we describe above under “— Who Is the Legal Owner of a Registered Debt Security?”;

 

    An investor may not be able to sell interests in the debt securities to some insurance companies and other institutions that are required by law to own their debt securities in non-book-entry form;

 

-46-


Table of Contents
    An investor may not be able to pledge his or her interest in a global security in circumstances where certificates representing the debt securities must be delivered to the lender or other beneficiary of the pledge in order for the pledge to be effective;

 

    The depositary’s policies will govern payments, deliveries, transfers, exchanges, notices and other matters relating to an investor’s interest in a global security, and those policies may change from time to time. We and the trustee will have no responsibility for any aspect of the depositary’s policies, actions or records of ownership interests in a global security. We and the trustee also do not supervise the depositary in any way;

 

    The depositary will require that those who purchase and sell interests in a global security within its book-entry system use immediately available funds and your broker or bank may require you to do so as well; and

 

    Financial institutions that participate in the depositary’s book-entry system and through which an investor holds its interest in the global securities, directly or indirectly, may also have their own policies affecting payments, deliveries, transfers, exchanges, notices and other matters relating to the debt securities, and those policies may change from time to time. For example, if you hold an interest in a global security through Euroclear or Clearstream, when DTC is the depositary, Euroclear or Clearstream, as applicable, will require those who purchase and sell interests in that security through them to use immediately available funds and comply with other policies and procedures, including deadlines for giving instructions as to transactions that are to be effected on a particular day. There may be more than one financial intermediary in the chain of ownership for an investor. We do not monitor and are not responsible for the policies or actions or records of ownership interests of any of those intermediaries.

Holder’s Option to Obtain a Non-Global Security; Special Situations When a Global Security Will Be Terminated

If we issue any series of debt securities in book-entry form but we choose to give the beneficial owners of that series the right to obtain non-global securities, any beneficial owner entitled to obtain non-global securities may do so by following the applicable procedures of the depositary, any transfer agent or registrar for that series and that owner’s bank, broker or other financial institution through which that owner holds its beneficial interest in the debt securities. For example, in the case of a global security representing preferred stock or depositary shares, a beneficial owner will be entitled to obtain a non-global security representing its interest by making a written request to the transfer agent or other agent designated by us. If you are entitled to request a non-global certificate and wish to do so, you will need to allow sufficient lead time to enable us or our agent to prepare the requested certificate.

In addition, in a few special situations described below, a global security will be terminated and interests in it will be exchanged for certificates in non-global form representing the debt securities it represented. After that exchange, the choice of whether to hold the debt securities directly or in street name will be up to the investor. Investors must consult their own banks or brokers to find out how to have their interests in a global security transferred on termination to their own names, so that they will be holders. We have described the rights of holders and street name investors above under “— Who Is the Legal Owner of a Registered Debt Security?.”

The special situations for termination of a global security are as follows:

 

    if the depositary notifies us that it is unwilling, unable or no longer qualified to continue as depositary for that global security and we do not appoint another institution to act as depositary within 60 days;

 

    if we notify the trustee that we wish to terminate that global security; or

 

    in the case of a global security representing debt securities issued under an indenture, if an event of default has occurred with regard to these debt securities and has not been cured or waived.

Table of Contents

If a global security is terminated, only the depositary, and not we or the trustee for any debt securities is responsible for deciding the names of the institutions in whose names the debt securities represented by the global security will be registered and, therefore, who will be the holders of those debt securities.

Considerations Relating to Euroclear and Clearstream

Euroclear and Clearstream are securities clearance systems in Europe. Both systems clear and settle securities transactions between their participants through electronic, book-entry delivery of securities against payment.

Euroclear and Clearstream may be depositaries for a global security. In addition, if DTC is the depositary for a global security, Euroclear and Clearstream may hold interests in the global security as participants in DTC.

As long as any global security is held by Euroclear or Clearstream, as depositary, you may hold an interest in the global security only through an organization that participates, directly or indirectly, in Euroclear or Clearstream. If Euroclear or Clearstream is the depositary for a global security and there is no depositary in the United States, you will not be able to hold interests in that global security through any securities clearance system in the United States.

Payments, deliveries, transfers, exchanges, notices and other matters relating to the debt securities made through Euroclear or Clearstream must comply with the rules and procedures of those systems. Those systems could change their rules and procedures at any time. We have no control over those systems or their participants, and we take no responsibility for their activities. Transactions between participants in Euroclear or Clearstream, on one hand, and participants in DTC, on the other hand, when DTC is the depositary, would also be subject to DTC’s rules and procedures.

Special Timing Considerations for Transactions in Euroclear and Clearstream

Investors will be able to make and receive through Euroclear and Clearstream payments, deliveries, transfers, exchanges, notices and other transactions involving any debt securities held through those systems only on days when those systems are open for business. Those systems may not be open for business on days when banks, brokers and other institutions are open for business in the United States.

In addition, because of time-zone differences, U.S. investors who hold their interests in the debt securities through these systems and wish to transfer their interests, or to receive or make a payment or delivery or exercise any other right with respect to their interests, on a particular day may find that the transaction will not be effected until the next business day in Luxembourg or Brussels, as applicable. Thus, investors who wish to exercise rights that expire on a particular day may need to act before the expiration date. In addition, investors who hold their interests through both DTC and Euroclear or Clearstream may need to make special arrangements to finance any purchases or sales of their interests between the U.S. and European clearing systems, and those transactions may settle later than would be the case for transactions within one clearing system.

PLAN OF DISTRIBUTION

We may sell the securities:

 

    through underwriters or dealers, whether individually or through an underwriting syndicate led by one or more managing underwriters;

 

    directly to one or more purchasers; or

 

    through agents.

The distribution of the securities may be effected from time to time in one or more transactions:

 

    at a fixed price, or prices which may be changed from time to time;

 

    at market prices prevailing at the time of sale;

 

    at prices related to those prevailing market prices; or

 

    at negotiated prices.

The applicable prospectus supplement will include the names of underwriters, dealers or agents retained. The applicable prospectus supplement will also include the purchase price of the securities, our proceeds from the sale, any underwriting discounts or commissions and other items constituting underwriters’ compensation, and any securities exchanges on which the securities are listed.

The underwriters will acquire the securities for their own account. They may resell the securities in one or more transactions, including negotiated transactions, at a fixed public offering price or at varying prices determined at the time of sale. The obligations of the underwriters to purchase the securities will be subject to some conditions. The underwriters will be obligated to purchase all the securities offered if any of the securities are purchased. Any initial public offering price and any discounts or concessions allowed or re-allowed or paid to dealers may be changed from time to time.

Until the distribution of the securities is completed, rules of the SEC may limit the ability of any underwriters and selling group members to bid for and purchase the securities. As an exception to these rules, underwriters are permitted to engage in some transactions that stabilize the price of the securities. Such transactions consist of bids or purchases for the purpose of pegging, fixing or maintaining the price of the securities, so long as stabilizing bids do not exceed a specified maximum.

The underwriters may create a short position in the securities of as much as 15-20% by selling more securities than are set forth on the cover page of the applicable prospectus supplement. A prospectus will be delivered to each purchaser of securities in these “short sales,” and we understand that each such purchaser will be entitled to the same remedies under the Securities Act, as if the purchaser purchased securities in this offering in a transaction that is not a short sale. If a short position is created in connection with the offering, the underwriters may engage in syndicate covering transactions by purchasing securities in the open market. The underwriters may also elect to reduce any short position by exercising all or part of the over-allotment option, if any.

The lead underwriters may also impose a penalty bid on other underwriters and selling group members participating in an offering. This means that if the lead underwriters purchase securities in the open market to reduce the underwriters’ short position or to stabilize the price of the securities, they may reclaim the amount of any selling concession from the underwriters and selling group members who sold those securities as part of the offering.

In general, purchases of a security for the purpose of stabilization or to reduce a short position could cause the price of the security to be higher than it might be in the absence of such purchases. The imposition of a penalty bid might also have an effect on the price of a security to the extent that it were to discourage resales of the security before the distribution is completed.

Table of Contents

We do not make any representation or prediction as to the direction or magnitude of any effect that the transactions described above might have on the price of the securities. In addition, we do not make any representation that underwriters will engage in such transaction or that such transactions, once commenced, will not be discontinued without notice.

Underwriters, dealers and agents that participate in the distribution of the securities may be underwriters as defined in the Securities Act, and any discounts or commissions received by them from us and any profit on the resale of the securities by them may be treated as underwriting discounts and commissions under the Securities Act.

We may have agreements with the underwriters, dealers and agents to indemnify them against some civil liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act, or to contribute to payments which the underwriters, dealers or agents may be required to make.

Underwriters, dealers and agents may engage in transactions with, or perform services for, us or our subsidiaries in the ordinary course of their businesses.

We may authorize underwriters, dealers and agents to solicit offers by some specified institutions to purchase securities from us at the public offering price stated in the applicable prospectus supplement under delayed delivery contracts providing for payment and delivery on a specified date in the future.

These contracts will be subject only to those conditions included in the applicable prospectus supplement, and the applicable prospectus supplement will state the commission payable for solicitation of these contracts.

We may enter into derivative transactions with third parties, or sell securities not covered by this prospectus to third parties in privately negotiated transactions. If the applicable prospectus supplement indicates, in connection with those derivatives, the third parties may sell securities covered by this prospectus and the applicable prospectus supplement, including in short sale transactions. If so, the third parties may use securities pledged by us or borrowed from us or others to settle those sales or to close out any related open borrowings of stock, and may use securities received from us in settlement of those derivatives to close out any related open borrowings of stock. The third parties in such sale transactions will be underwriters as defined in the Securities Act and, if not identified in this prospectus, will be identified in the applicable prospectus supplement (or a post-effective amendment).

Any underwriters who purchase securities from us for public offering and sale may make a market in those securities, but these underwriters will not be obligated to do so and may discontinue any market making at any time without notice. We cannot assure you that there will be a trading market for any securities, and, if a trading market for any securities does develop, we cannot assure you that such market will be liquid.

Pursuant to a requirement by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”), the maximum commission or discount to be received by any FINRA member or independent broker/dealer may not be greater than eight percent of the gross proceeds received by us for the sale of any securities being registered pursuant to Rule 415 under the Securities Act.

VALIDITY OF THE DEBT SECURITIES AND GUARANTEES

In connection with particular offerings of the debt securities and related guarantees in the future, and if stated in the applicable prospectus supplement, the validity of those debt securities and related guarantees may be passed upon for the Company by Sullivan & Cromwell LLP.

Item 15. Indemnification of Directors and Officers

Delaware Registrants

Section 145 of the Delaware General Corporation Law provides that a corporation may indemnify any current or former director, officer or employee or other individual against expenses, judgments, fines and amounts paid in settlement in connection with civil, criminal, administrative or investigative actions or proceedings, other than a derivative action by or in the right of the corporation, if the director, officer, employee or other individual acted in good faith and in a manner he or she reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the corporation, and, with respect to any criminal action or proceeding, if he or she had no reasonable cause to believe his or her conduct was unlawful. A similar standard is applicable in the case of derivative actions, except that indemnification only extends to expenses incurred in connection with the defense or settlement of such actions, and the statute requires court approval before there can be any indemnification where the person seeking indemnification has been found liable to the corporation. The statute provides that it is not exclusive of other indemnification that may be granted by a corporation’s by-laws, disinterested director vote, stockholder vote, agreement or otherwise.

The certificate of incorporation of AMC Networks Inc. and each Co-Registrant that is a Delaware corporation provides that each person who was or is made or is threatened to be made a party to any action or proceeding by reason of the fact that such person, or a person of whom such person is the legal representative, is or was a director or officer of the Company or is or was serving at our request as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation or of a partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise, including service with respect to employee benefit plans, will be indemnified and held harmless by us to the fullest extent authorized by the Delaware General Corporation Law, as the same exists or may hereafter be amended. Such rights are not exclusive of any other right which any such person may have or thereafter acquire under any statute, provision of the certificate of incorporation, by-law, agreement, vote of stockholders or disinterested directors or otherwise. Our certificate of incorporation also specifically authorizes us to maintain insurance and to grant similar indemnification rights to our employees or agents.

Section 18-108 of the Delaware Limited Liability Company Act (“DE LLC Act”) provides that, subject to such standards and restrictions, if any, as are set forth in its limited liability company agreement, a limited liability company may, and shall have the power to, indemnify and hold harmless any member or manager or other person from and against any and all claims and demands whatsoever. However, to the extent that the limited liability company agreement seeks to restrict or limit the liabilities of such person, Section 18-1101 of the DE LLC Act prohibits it from eliminating liability for any act or omission that constitutes a bad faith violation of the implied contractual covenant of good faith and fair dealing.

Pursuant to the applicable provisions of the DE LLC Act and the Co-Registrants’ limited liability company agreements, the debts, obligations and liabilities of each Co-Registrant that is a Delaware limited liability company, whether arising in contract, tort or otherwise, shall be solely the debts, obligations and liabilities of the company, and neither the members, nor any employee or agent of the company is obligated personally for any such debt, obligation or liability of the company, or for any debt, obligation or liability of any other member, employee or agent of the company, solely by reason of being a member or acting as a manager, employee or agent of the company.

New York Co-Registrants

Section 420 of the New York Limited Liability Company Law provides that, subject to such standards and restrictions, if any, as are set forth in its operating agreement, a limited liability company may, and shall have the power to, indemnify and hold harmless, and advance expenses to, any member or manager or other person from and against any and all claims and demands whatsoever. However, no indemnification may be made to or on behalf of any member, manager or other person if a judgment or other final adjudication adverse to such member, manager or other person establishes that (i) such person’s acts were committed in bad faith or were the result of active and deliberate dishonesty and were material to the cause of action so adjudicated, or (ii) such person personally gained in fact a financial profit or other advantage to which such person was not legally entitled.

Consistent with these provisions of the New York Limited Liability Company Act, the limited liability company agreement of AMC Network Entertainment LLC, our Co-Registrant New York limited liability company, provides that the debts, obligations and liabilities of the company, whether arising in contract, tort or otherwise, shall be solely the debts, obligations and liabilities of the company, and neither the members, nor any employee or agent of the company is obligated personally for any such debt, obligation or liability of the company, or for any debt, obligation or liability of any other member, employee or agent of the company, solely by reason of being a member or acting as a manager, employee or agent of the company provided that such indemnification shall not apply to any such person if such claim resulted from the fraud and or willful misconduct of such person.

Section 40 of the New York Partnership Law provides that, subject to any agreement between the partners, a partnership must indemnify every partner in respect of payments made and personal liabilities reasonably incurred by him in the ordinary and proper conduct of the partnership’s business, or for the preservation of the partnership’s business or property.

Consistent with these provisions of the New York Partnership Law, the partnership agreement of AMC Networks Broadcasting & Technology, our Co-Registrant New York general partnership, provides that the partnership will indemnify and hold harmless the partners and officers of the partnership, as well as the agents of the partners or officers, from any losses and liabilities resulting from acts or omissions taken by them on behalf of the partnership or in furtherance of the partnership’s interests, other than those constituting fraud or willful misconduct.

Louisiana Co-Registrants

(1) To file, during any period in which offers or sales are being made, a post-effective amendment to this registration statement:

aggregate, represent a fundamental change in the information set forth in the registration statement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any increase or decrease in volume of securities offered (if the total dollar value of securities offered would not exceed that which was registered) and any deviation from the low or high end of the estimated maximum offering range may be reflected in the form of prospectus filed with the Commission pursuant to Rule 424(b) if, in the aggregate, the changes in volume and price represent no more than 20 percent change in the maximum aggregate offering price set forth in the “Calculation of Registration Fee” table in the effective registration statement; and

(iii) To include any material information with respect to the plan of distribution not previously disclosed in the registration statement or any material change to such information in the registration statement;

provided, however, that paragraphs (1)(i), (1)(ii) and (1)(iii) do not apply if the information required to be included in a post-effective amendment by those paragraphs is contained in reports filed with or furnished to the Commission by the Registrant pursuant to Section 13 or Section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), that are incorporated by reference in the registration statement, or is contained in a form of prospectus filed pursuant to Rule 424(b) that is part of the registration statement.

(2) That, for the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities Act, each such post-effective amendment shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

(3) To remove from registration by means of a post-effective amendment any of the securities being registered which remain unsold at the termination of the offering.

(4) That, for the purpose of determining liability under the Securities Act, to any purchaser:

(i) Each prospectus filed by a Registrant pursuant to Rule 424(b)(3) shall be deemed to be part of the registration statement as of the date the filed prospectus was deemed part of and included in the registration statement; and

(ii) Each prospectus required to be filed pursuant to Rule 424(b)(2), (b)(5) or (b)(7) as part of a registration statement in reliance on Rule 430B relating to an offering made pursuant to Rule 415(a)(1)(i), (vii) or (x) for the purpose of providing the information required by Section 10(a) of the Securities Act, shall be deemed to be part of and included in the registration statement as of the earlier of the date such form of prospectus is first used after effectiveness or the date of the first contract of sale of securities in the offering described in the prospectus. As provided in Rule 430B, for liability purposes of the issuer and any person that is at that date an underwriter, such date shall be deemed to be a new effective date of the registration statement relating to the securities in the registration statement to which the prospectus relates, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof. Provided, however, that no statement made in a registration statement or prospectus that is part of the registration statement or made in a document incorporated or deemed incorporated by reference into the registration statement or prospectus that is part of the registration statement will, as to a purchaser with a time of contract of sale prior to such effective date, supersede or modify any statement that was made in the registration statement or prospectus that was part of the registration statement or made in any such document immediately prior to such effective date.

(5) That, for the purpose of determining liability of a Registrant under the Securities Act, to any purchaser in the initial distribution of the securities, each undersigned Registrant undertakes that in a primary offering of securities of an undersigned Registrant pursuant to this registration statement, regardless of the underwriting method used to sell the securities to the purchaser, if the securities are offered or sold to such purchaser by means of any of the following communications, each undersigned Registrant will be a seller to the purchaser and will be considered to offer or sell such securities to such purchaser:

(i) Any preliminary prospectus or prospectus of an undersigned Registrant relating to the offering required to be filed pursuant to Rule 424;

 

II-4


Table of Contents

(ii) Any free writing prospectus relating to the offering prepared by or on behalf of an undersigned Registrant or used or referred to by an undersigned Registrant;

(iii) The portion of any other free writing prospectus relating to the offering containing material information about an undersigned Registrant or its securities provided by or on behalf of an undersigned Registrant; and

(iv) Any other communication that is an offer in the offering made by an undersigned Registrant to the purchaser.

(6) That, for purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act, each filing of a Registrant’s annual report pursuant to Section 13(a) or 15(d) of the Exchange Act (and, where applicable, each filing of an employee benefit plan’s annual report pursuant to Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act) that is incorporated by reference in the registration statement shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act of 1933 may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of each Registrant pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise, each Registrant has been advised that in the opinion of the Securities and Exchange Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by a Registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling person of a Registrant in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, that each Registrant will, unless in the opinion of its counsel has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act, and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.
