Entravision Initiates Quarterly Cash Dividend

The first will be payable on Dec. 30 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on Dec. 16. It’s also paying a special one-time cash dividend on the same dates. "Our strong financial performance and balance sheet offers us the opportunity to return value directly to our shareholders through the first quarterly dividend in Entravision's history," said Walter F. Ulloa, Entravision chairman-CEO.

Entravision Communications Corp. announced today that its board of directors has approved the initiation of a quarterly cash dividend to shareholders and has declared an initial quarterly cash dividend of $0.025 per share of the Company’s Class A, Class B and Class U common stock, in an aggregate amount of approximately $2.2 million.

The initial quarterly dividend will be payable on Dec. 30 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on Dec. 16, and the common stock will trade ex-dividend on Dec. 12. The company said it anticipates that future cash dividends will be paid quarterly. Any decision to pay future cash dividends will be subject to further approval by the board.

The company’s board has also declared a special one-time cash dividend of $0.10 per share to shareholders of the company’s Class A, Class B and Class U common stock, in an aggregate amount of approximately $8.8 million. This will be payable on Dec. 30 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on Dec. 16 and the common stock will trade ex-dividend on Dec. 12.

In addition, Entravision announced its intention to prepay $10 million of term loans under the company’s senior secured term loan credit facility entered into on May 31. The company said it anticipates funding this prepayment by using cash on hand. Following the prepayment, approximately $364 million will remain outstanding under the company’s term loan credit facility.

“Our strong financial performance and balance sheet offers us the opportunity to return value directly to our shareholders through the first quarterly dividend in Entravision’s history,” said Walter F. Ulloa, Entravision chairman-CEO. “We are pleased to deliver additional returns through the one-time special dividend as well as further reduce our debt and strengthen our balance sheet. Our liquidity position remains solid and we are focused on continuing to execute our growth strategy and generate strong operating results.”
