Form 8-K for CTC MEDIA, INC.


19-Mar-2013

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement


Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On March 14, 2013, CTC Media Inc.'s subsidiaries CTC Network ("CTC") and Domashny Network ("Domashny") entered into definitive agreements on identical terms with the Russian Television and Radio Network ("RTRS"), a Russian state entity, for the provision by RTRS of digital communication services to CTC and Domashny (the "Agreements").

Under the terms of the Agreements, RTRS will provide to CTC and Domashny all services required for the channels to broadcast their signals in digital format throughout Russia to approximately 141.6 million viewers by 2015. The specific services, coverage and equipment to be provided by RTRS will be agreed by the parties on an annual basis pursuant to a roll-out plan forming a part of the principal agreement between the parties. The Agreements terminate on March 31, 2023. The Agreements may be terminated by either party upon written notification sent to the other party not later than 6 months prior to the proposed termination date.

In 2013, the amount payable to RTRS under the Agreements by each of the CTC and Domashny channels is RUR 107,803,670, or approximately $3.6 million (including VAT at 18%). The amount payable includes costs to be reimbursed to RTRS for a satellite transponder capacity lease.

Fees payable to RTRS for 2014 and beyond will be calculated on an annual basis according to rates that RTRS will set by October 1st of the prior year and will be impacted by the multiplex infrastructure roll-out. These rates will not change more than once yearly and any annual increases in such rates will be in line with the increases in rates set by the Russian Federal Tariff Service for similar types of services.

Governmental authorities have indicated that each channel participating in the second digital multiplex will be expected to pay up to $26 million (excluding VAT at 18%) annually in transmission fees once the second multiplex is fully introduced. During the transition period until 2015, these transmission fees are expected to be lower and are to be paid by way of stage payments as the rollout progresses.
