Central European Media Enterprises (CETV) announced that, to finance the redemption of its EUR 272,972,000 aggregate principal amount of 11.625% senior notes due 2016 and to provide additional liquidity, CME has entered into agreements with Time Warner (TWX) and one of its affiliates and filed a rights offering registration statement. In connection with the rights offering, CME shareholders holding Class A Common Stock and Preferred Stock will receive non-transferrable rights to purchase in the aggregate 3,391,403 units at a subscription price of $100.00 per unit. Shareholders will receive one right per 62.5 shares of Class A Common Stock held as of a record date to be determined at a later date and subsequently announced. Only shareholders holding 62.5 or more shares of Class A Common Stock on the record date will satisfy the minimum subscription threshold and be eligible to participate in the rights offering. Each unit will consist of a 15.0% Senior Secured Note due 2017 in the original principal amount of $100.00 and 21.167376 unit warrants. Each unit warrant will entitle the warrant holder to purchase one share of CME's Class A Common Stock at an exercise price of $1.00 per share. Time Warner has agreed to purchase all units in the rights offering not subscribed for by other shareholders. In addition, Time Warner will purchase 576,968 units from CME in a separate private placement transaction to close contemporaneously with the rights offering. In connection with the foregoing, CME will issue a warrant to Time Warner to purchase 30 million shares of Class A Common Stock at an exercise price of $1.00 per share. The Company expects to raise gross proceeds from the rights offering and the purchase of units by Time Warner of approximately $396.8M, which is equal to the amount of principal and early redemption premium payable to redeem the 2016 Notes at February 21 exchange rates. In addition, CME will issue 84M unit warrants in the rights offering and the Time Warner private placement.

11:47 EDTTWXAnalysts clash on DreamWorks following Q4 miss
The shares of animated film and television show maker DreamWorks (DWA) are rising, despite the weaker than expected results reported by the company last night. Two analysts offered very different views on the company's outlook following its results. BACKGROUND: DreamWorks last night reported a fourth quarter per share loss of ($3.08), versus analysts' consensus outlook for a ($3.01) per share loss. The company's revenue also came in below expectations. Excluding $210M in pre-tax charges associated with DreamWorks' restructuring plan, its loss was (75c) per share, the company stated. BEARISH TAKE: In a note to investors today, FBR Capital analyst Barton Crockett wrote that DreamWorks' results were "ugly," as they included $155M of write-offs on films and TV shows. However, Crockett believes that the crucial factor for the company's outlook is whether it can consistently compete with the entertainment giants, including Disney (DIS), Viacom (VIA), and Time Warner (TWX). Crockett is not convinced that DreamWorks will be able to hold its own, and he believes that its 2015 results could come in below expectations. The analyst warned that the company may have difficulty meeting its 2015 consumer products revenue guidance. DreamWorks expects its consumer products revenue to double this year, but the movie-based toy space is "very competitive" in 2015, as toys based on multiple popular children's films are set to be released, Crockett stated. Moreover, after conducting checks online, Crockett reports that there does not seem to be a great deal of interest in DreamWorks' movie "Home," which is set to be released on March 27. He kept an Underperform rating on the shares and raised his price target on the stock to $14 from $12. BULLISH TAKE: DreamWorks' results were mixed, but the results are not very important, Piper Jaffray analyst James Marsh stated. The company's guidance for its TV and consumer products businesses were solid, the analyst believes. Moreover, the company "took specific and decisive action" to avert a liquidity crunch, Marsh wrote. Specifically, DreamWorks raised $185M of capital by selling its real estate in Glendale, California and then leasing it back, and increased the size of its current credit facility to $450M from $400M, Marsh reported. The moves should "largely" eliminate investors' worries about the company's liquidity position, Marsh stated. He kept a $26 price target and Overweight rating on the stock. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On DreamWorks' earnings conference call last night, the company's CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg stated that it did not obtain more than 10% of its revenue from Netflix (NFLX) last year. However, in an SEC filing earlier this morning, DreamWorks clarified that it had obtained 14.9% of its revenue from Netflix last year. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, DreamWorks rose 5.6% to $22.31.
