    Now there's a thought! haha

    At the time of this post the share price is !6.46. Nexstar deal is now in place. Is it time to sell or hold on as it is still undervalued according to the terms of the deal. The value of the CVR from the upcoming spectrum auction is not even being considered in the current share price. Would like some opinions.

    When is the auction and when would they announce the results?

  • Is that legitimate or to drive down the price so he can buy on the cheap? Benchmark maintained its buy rating but reduced target from $19 to $18.

    New York Post article dated 12-23-15 says Nexstar and MEG are getting closer to a $2B deal. "The gap has closed and they are getting closer", two sources close to the situation said Tuesday. "Meredith will have 4 business days to match".

    Didn't MDP say they were not going to make a competing offer a week or so ago? I thought I read that in probably a NY Post article.

    Nexstar Broadcasting Group is planning to take its fight against Media General to the boardroom if the two sides can’t agree to merge, The Post has learned.

    The 11-member Media General board, which in September recommended an offer to buy Meredith, the magazine and broadcasting company, unanimously rejected Nexstar’s improved $16.31 a share bid, or $2.1 billion, on Wednesday. All three own TV stations.

    The company has been delaying Nexstar hoping Meredith would propose an offer to buy it, sources said. But Meredith has had a difficult time putting a deal structure together, a source said.

    Nexstar is eyeing Media General’s board nominations that start on Dec. 28, as a prelude to mounting a challenger slate in a proxy battle.

    The enhanced offer includes a provision that would allow Media General shareholders to keep the profits from selling spectrum in a government auction that could net investors an additional $1.50 a share.

    Nexstar may make a better offer of roughly $17 a share before the Media General board meets on Thursday, two sources close to the situation said.

    “By no means is Nexstar walking away. However, they are frustrated,” a source said.

    Shareholders have made it clear they will not approve the standing $2.4 billion deal in which Media General buys Meredith.

    The fresh offer would force the Media General board into a difficult position. Shares have risen from $11.15 on Sept. 28 when Nexstar announced its unsolicited bid of $14.50 a share. The stock fell 10 cents, to $14.48, on Wednesday.

    “Our board remains open to discussing and receiving an improved proposal from Nexstar that would appropriately value the company,” Media General said.

    One Media General investor said he no longer trusts the directors. “I fear this board will not make the right decision.”

    MEG News Release

    Part 2
    Despite these significant financial and strategic benefits that Nexstar and its shareholders would gain from a combination with Media General, Nexstar refuses to properly price the combination and materially improve its view on value. Our Board believes that a change in control transaction at the proposed valuation levels does not properly compensate our shareholders for the financial and strategic value Media General would bring to a combination with Nexstar.

    In its December 6, 2015 letter, Media General explicitly asked Nexstar to provide its ‘best and final’ proposal to Media General. Rather than providing a revised proposal and continuing private negotiations, we are surprised that Nexstar issued today’s press release reiterating its previous proposal which our Board had already unanimously rejected. We note that it is unclear from Nexstar’s press release if its current proposal is indeed its best and final proposal."

    As previously announced on September 8, 2015, Media General entered into a definitive merger agreement with Meredith Corporation under which Media General will acquire all of the outstanding common stock of Meredith in a cash and stock transaction. The Board of Directors of Media General continues to recommend the proposed transaction with Meredith.

    MEG News Release

    danashenfelter danashenfelter Dec 9, 2015 5:57 PM Flag

    Media General, Inc. (NYSE: MEG; (“Media General” or the “Company”) today commented on Nexstar Broadcasting Group’s (“Nexstar”)(NXST) statement:

    "Media General’s Board of Directors is focused on maximizing shareholder value, and we have been negotiating in good faith with Nexstar over the past several weeks, with the goal of reaching an agreement that adequately reflects the inherent value in Media General, as well as the synergies that would result from such a combination. Our Board remains open to discussing and reviewing an improved proposal from Nexstar that would appropriately value the Company.

    In a December 6, 2015 letter to Nexstar, Media General clearly communicated the unanimous view of our Board that Nexstar’s current proposal to acquire Media General for $10.54 in cash and 0.1024 of a Nexstar share materially undervalues Media General and its prospects and is not in the best interests of Media General’s shareholders. Based on Nexstar’s closing stock price on December 8, 2015, the current proposal represents a value of $16.31 per Media General share. Rather than improving its initial August 10, 2015 proposal of $17.00 per share based on our joint synergy work and to reflect the improved valuations in the media and TV broadcasting sectors since August 2015, Nexstar continues to reiterate its current proposal that reflects a discount to its August 10, 2015 proposal which was unanimously rejected by the Media General Board of Directors at the time.

    The current proposal reflects a multiple of projected 2015E/2016E average-year post-synergy EBITDA for Media General of only 8.2x (based on consensus estimates) and implies greater than 50% free cash flow accretion to Nexstar’s shareholders. Additionally, as we have discussed during our due diligence sessions with Nexstar, our business is gearing up towards a strong 2016 political year and promising retransmission repricings, which are a big source of growth in our projected cash flows.

    $17.03 is right because the rejected deal consists of $11.00 cash + 0.1024 shares (58.91 x 0.1024= 6.03) = $17.03

    Value Investor and Media Trader

    From the New York Post on Tuesday evening.
    Nexstar Broadcasting Group has sweetened its offer for rival TV station operator Media General, The Post has learned.

    Nexstar raised its bid by almost 17 percent to just under $17 a share in the last several days, a source said, adding that Media General has not yet responded to the latest offer or made it public.

    Nexstar made an unsolicited proposal to buy Media General for $14.50 per share in cash and stock on Sept. 28. At the time, Media General rejected the deal, saying it significantly “undervalues” the company.

    But under pressure from activist investor Starboard Value, Media General’s board said last month it was open to a higher offer and would hold merger talks with Nexstar while still backing an existing agreement to buy Meredith Corp.

    There is a three way tug-of-war between the TV station owners as they seek to get bigger and increase their leverage in negotiations with cable and satellite providers over so-called “retransmission fees.”

    “They should have said they received a second bid,” said a Media General shareholder, who was not aware of the new offer. “Not being up front is the continuation of a pattern.”

    In August, Nexstar made a nonbinding offer to buy Media General for $17 a share before going public with a lower, unsolicited offer the following month, according to Nov. 25 regulatory filing from Media General, which means the board didn’t disclose Nexstar’s first proposal until after directors had voted 7 to 4 on Sept. 7 to pursue a deal to acquire Meredith.

    Media General declined to comment. Nexstar did not return calls.

    Because I don't generally keep responding to negative posters when they don't have any credible info to back up their negative posts.

    Were you unable to find the New York Post article Monday that Meredith's new counter proposal may takes "a few weeks"? Google it.

  • Just do the opposite of this stooge and you will have the odds on your side!
