Item 8.01 Other Events.
On November 16, 2012, Nexstar Broadcasting Group, Inc. (the Company) provided the Combined Financial Statements of High Plains Broadcasting Operating Company LLC and Newport Television LLC Stations in Binghamton, NY; Elmira, NY; Jackson, TN; Little Rock, AR; Memphis, TN; Salt Lake City, UT; Syracuse, NY; and Watertown, NY; along with Inergize Digital and the New York Hub Operating Divisions (the Newport Assets) for the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, in connection with the proposed acquisition by the Company of the Newport Assets (the Newport Acquisition). A copy of the Combined Financial Statements is filed and attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated by reference.
Also on November 16, 2012, the Company provided unaudited pro forma combined financial information as of September 30, 2012, for the nine months ended September 30, 2012. The unaudited pro forma combined financial information is derived from the historical financial statements of the Company and the Newport Assets, adjusted to give effect to the proposed Newport Acquisition and certain related financing transactions. The pro forma adjustments are preliminary and have been made solely for informational purposes. As a result, the pro forma combined information is not intended to represent and does not purport to be indicative of what the combined companys financial condition or results of operations would have been had the acquisition or the related financing transactions occurred at an earlier date. In addition, the pro forma combined financial information does not purport to project the future financial condition and results of operations of the combined company. The actual results of the combined company may differ significantly from those reflected in the pro forma combined financial information. The unaudited pro forma combined financial information is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.2 and is incorporated herein by reference.
This Current Report on Form 8-K contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws and is intended to qualify for the safe harbor from liability established by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements generally can be identified by the use of the forward-looking terminology such as assumptions, target, guidance, outlook, plans, projection, may, will, would, expect, intend, estimate, anticipate, believe, potential, continue, (or the negative of other derivatives of each of these terms) or similar terminology. The forward-looking statements include, without limitation, statements regarding our acquisition of the Newport Assets. These statements are based on managements estimates and assumptions with respect to future events, which include uncertainty as to our ability to consummate the offering of the notes, failure to realize the anticipated benefits of the acquisition of the Newport Assets, including as a result of a delay in completing the acquisition of the Newport Assets or a delay or difficulty in integrating the Newport Assets, the expected amount and timing of cost savings and operating synergies, current capital and debt market conditions and the Companys ability to obtain new debt financing on acceptable terms, which estimates are believed to be reasonable, though are inherently uncertain and difficult to predict. Actual results could differ materially from those projected as a result of certain factors. A discussion of factors that could cause actual results to vary is included in the Companys Annual Report on Form 10-K, as amended, and other periodic reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
