Item 8.01      Other Events

 

On December 20, 2012, SuperMedia Inc. (“ SuperMedia ”) received signature pages to the Support and Limited Waiver Agreement (the “ SuperMedia Support Agreement ”), dated as of December 5, 2012, by and among SuperMedia, certain of its subsidiaries, JP Morgan Chase Bank, N.A and certain of the lenders under its senior secured credit facility (the “ SuperMedia Credit Facility ”) from sufficient lenders such that more than half in number (but not all) of the holders, and more than two-thirds in amount, of the debt issued under the SuperMedia Credit Facility have become parties to the SuperMedia Support Agreement.  SuperMedia was also notified that more than half in number (but not all) of the holders, and more than two-thirds in amount, of the debt issued under Dex One Corporation’s (“ Dex One ”) senior secured credit facilities (the “ Dex One Credit Facilities ”) have become parties to the Support and Limited Waiver Agreement (the “ Dex One Support Agreement ”), dated as of December 5, 2012, by and among Dex One, certain of its subsidiaries, JP Morgan Chase Bank, N.A, Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas and certain of the lenders under the Dex One Credit Facilities.  As a result, the number of lenders (and amount of debt) contractually obligated to vote in favor of certain voluntary pre-packaged plans under Chapter 11 of the U.S. bankruptcy code (the “ Plans ”) that would effect the contemplated merger between SuperMedia and Dex One (the “ Merger ”) (if Dex One and/or SuperMedia decide to effect the Merger through such process, which action has not as yet been approved by the board of directors of either company) exceeds the thresholds required for approval of such pre-packaged plans by such creditors under applicable bankruptcy law.

 

The following table sets forth the approximate percentage by both number of lenders and amount of debt that is, as of December 20, 2012, subject to the terms of the SuperMedia Support Agreement or the Dex One Support Agreement, as applicable.

Each of SuperMedia and Dex One intends to (a) continue seeking joinders from lenders under the SuperMedia  Credit Facility and the Dex One Credit Facilities to the SuperMedia Support Agreement and the Dex One Support Agreement (so the foregoing percentages may increase), (b) continue seeking consents from lenders under the SuperMedia Credit Facility and the Dex One Credit Facility to certain amendments to the SuperMedia Credit Facility and the Dex One Credit Facilities (and to execute such amendments) in an out of court process, (c) solicit approval of the Plans from lenders under the SuperMedia Credit Facility and the Dex One Credit Facilities, and (d) solicit approval of the Plans and the Amended and Restated Agreement and Plan of Merger governing the Merger from the stockholders of each company.  SuperMedia expects these solicitations to commence in the first quarter of 2013.

Forward-Looking Statements

 

Certain statements contained in this document are “forward-looking statements” subject to the safe harbor created by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including but not limited to, statements about the benefits of the proposed transaction and combined company, including future financial and operating results and synergies, plans, objectives, expectations and intentions and other statements relating to the proposed transaction and the combined company that are not historical facts.  Where possible, the words “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “should,” “will,” “would,” “planned,” “estimated,” “potential,” “goal,” “outlook,” “may,” “predicts,” “could,” or the negative of such terms, or other comparable expressions, as they relate to Dex, SuperMedia, the combined company or their respective management, have been used to identify such forward-looking statements. All forward-looking statements reflect only Dex’s and SuperMedia’s current beliefs and assumptions with respect to future business plans, prospects, decisions and results, and are based on information currently available to Dex and SuperMedia. Accordingly, the statements are subject to significant risks, uncertainties and contingencies, which could cause Dex’s, SuperMedia’s or the combined company’s actual operating results, performance or business plans or prospects to differ materially from those expressed in, or implied by, these statements.

 

Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from current expectations include risks and other factors described in Dex’s and SuperMedia’s publicly available reports filed with the SEC, which contain discussions of various factors that may affect the business or financial results of Dex, SuperMedia or the combined company. Such risks and other factors, which in some instances are beyond either company’s control, include: the continuing decline in the use of print directories; increased

competition, particularly from existing and emerging digital technologies; ongoing weak economic conditions and continued decline in advertising sales; the companies’ ability to collect trade receivables from customers to whom they extend credit; the companies’ ability to generate sufficient cash to service their debt; the companies’ ability to comply with the financial covenants contained in their debt agreements and the potential impact to operations and liquidity as a result of restrictive covenants in such debt agreements; the companies’ ability to refinance or restructure their debt on reasonable terms and conditions as might be necessary from time to time; increasing interest rates; changes in the companies’ and the companies’ subsidiaries credit ratings; changes in accounting standards; regulatory changes and judicial rulings impacting the companies’ businesses; adverse results from litigation, governmental investigations or tax related proceedings or audits; the effect of labor strikes, lock-outs and negotiations; successful realization of the expected benefits of acquisitions, divestitures and joint ventures; the companies’ ability to maintain agreements with major Internet search and local media companies; the companies’ reliance on third-party vendors for various services; and other events beyond their control that may result in unexpected adverse operating results.

 

With respect to the proposed merger, important factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those indicated by forward-looking statements included herein, including, but not limited to, the ability of Dex and SuperMedia to consummate the transaction on the terms set forth in the merger agreement; the risk that anticipated cost savings, growth opportunities and other financial and operating benefits as a result of the transaction may not be realized or may take longer to realize than expected; the risk that benefits from the transaction may be significantly offset by costs incurred in integrating the companies; potential adverse impacts or delay in completing the transaction as a result of obtaining consents from lenders to Dex or SuperMedia; failure to receive the approval of the stockholders of either Dex or SuperMedia for the transaction; the bankruptcy court failing to confirm the pre-packaged plan of reorganization if cases are filed under Chapter 11 of the U.S. bankruptcy code; and difficulties in connection with the process of integrating Dex and SuperMedia, including: coordinating geographically separate organizations; integrating business cultures, which could prove to be incompatible; difficulties and costs of integrating information technology systems; and the potential difficulty in retaining key officers and personnel.  These risks, as well as other risks associated with the merger, will be more fully discussed in the proxy statement/prospectus included in the registration statement on Form S-4 that Newdex has filed with the SEC in connection with the proposed transaction.

 

None of Dex, SuperMedia or the combined company is responsible for updating the information contained in this document beyond the publication date, or for changes made to this document by wire services or Internet service providers.
