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.

17:10 EDTTWXMarket finishes week up slightly as earnings offset by political events
Stocks finished the week fractionally higher than where they started as strong corporate earnings reports and better than expected economic data was weighed against concerns about geopolitical issues and negative M&A news. MACRO NEWS: A few ongoing geopolitical conflicts worried investors and weighed on shares. Russia unveiled sanctions against Western countries, banning the import of a wide range of food items from the U.S, the EU and a few allied countries in response to sanctions recently enacted against it from G7 nations... President Obama authorized the bombing of rebels in Iraq and Hamas and Israel failed to reach a permanent truce... An ISM services index, the U.S. trade deficit for June, and weekly jobless claims were all better than expected. Meanwhile, the increase in unit labor costs last quarter came in below the consensus outlook, perhaps easing fears that the Fed will need to raise interest rates sooner than expected. COMPANY NEWS: On the M&A front, two huge potential deals fell through as 21st Century Fox (FOX, FOXA) withdrew its offer to acquire Time Warner (TWX) and Sprint (S) reportedly decided to end its pursuit of a merger with peer T-Mobile (TMUS)... President Obama indicated that his administration would take unilateral steps in an effort to prevent companies from carrying out tax inversion acquisitions. Among the deals or possible transactions that involve inversion are Medtronic's (MDT) acquisition of Covidien (COV), Valeant's (VRX) proposed takeover of Allergan (AGN) and Mylan's (MYL) acquisition of Abbott's (ABT) developed markets branded generics pharmaceuticals business. Meanwhile, Walgreen's (WAG) stock tumbled after the U.S. company said it would not structure its takeover of European drugstore chain Alliance Boots as a tax inversion deal... 21st Century Fox, 3D printer maker Stratasys (SSYS), chip maker NVIDIA (NVDA), brewer Molson Coors (TAP), and luxury accessories maker Coach (COH) all rose following their earnings reports. Conversely, Target (TGT), luxury accessories maker Michael Kors (KORS) and Internet coupon provider Groupon (GRPN) fell following their results or guidance... Gannett (GCI) struck a deal to acquire the remaining 73% interest in Classified Ventures, whose primary asset is the online car shopping website Cars.com, for $1.8B from the other partners in the venture, which include McClatchy (MNI), Tribune Media (TRBAA), Graham Holdings (GHC) and A. H. Belo (AHC). Gannett also announced plans to spin-off its Publishing business, which includes USA Today, through a tax-free distribution to shareholders... McDonald's (MCD) stock was little changed after the company reported that its comparable store sales fell 2.5% in July, which was significantly worse than expected. Food quality issues weighed on the fast food company's sales in Asia and as a result of the China supplier issue, the company warned its previously issued global comparable sales forecast for 2014 is now at risk. INDEXES: The Dow finished the week up 0.35% to 16,553.93, the S&P 500 rose 0.32% to 1,931.59, and the Nasdaq gained 0.41% to 4,370.90.
