Other Events, Financial Statements and Exhibits


Item 8.01 Other Events.

As previously disclosed, two derivative lawsuits were filed in March 2012 in Delaware Chancery Court by stockholders of Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings, Inc. ("CCOH"), an indirect non-wholly owned subsidiary of CC Media Holdings, Inc. (the "Company"). The consolidated lawsuits are captioned In re Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings, Inc. Derivative Litigation, Consolidated Case No. 7315-CS. The complaints name as defendants certain of the current and former directors of CCOH and Clear Channel Communications, Inc. ("CCU"), an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, as well as CCU, Bain Capital Partners, LLC and Thomas H. Lee Partners, L.P. CCOH also is named as a nominal defendant. The complaints allege, among other things, that in December 2009 CCU breached fiduciary duties to CCOH and its stockholders by allegedly requiring CCOH to agree to amend the terms of the Revolving Promissory Note, dated as of November 10, 2005, between CCU, as maker, and CCOH, as payee (as amended, the "Note"), to extend the maturity date of the Note and to amend the interest rate payable on the Note (the "Contract Rate"). According to the complaints, the terms of the amended Note were unfair to CCOH because, among other things, the Contract Rate was below market. The complaints further allege that CCU was unjustly enriched as a result of that transaction. The complaints also allege that the director defendants breached fiduciary duties to CCOH in connection with that transaction and that the transaction constituted corporate waste. On April 4, 2012, the board of directors of CCOH formed a special litigation committee consisting of independent directors (the "SLC") to review and investigate plaintiffs' claims and determine the course of action that serves the best interests of CCOH and its stockholders.

On March 28, 2013, to avoid the costs, disruption and distraction of further litigation, and without admitting the validity of any allegations made in the complaint, legal counsel for the defendants entered into a binding memorandum of understanding (the "MOU") with legal counsel for the SLC and the plaintiffs to settle the litigation. The MOU obligates the parties to use their best efforts to prepare a Stipulation of Settlement reflecting the terms of the MOU and present such Stipulation of Settlement to the Delaware Chancery Court for approval.

The Stipulation of Settlement has not yet been finalized and is subject to approval by the Delaware Court of Chancery. Accordingly, unless and until such approval, no assurance can be provided that the parties will be able to resolve the outstanding litigation as contemplated by the MOU. A copy of the MOU is incorporated by reference as Exhibit 99.1 hereto and incorporated herein by reference.

Current Report on Form 8-K filed on April 3, 2013).
