BURBANK, Calif., Dec. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Liberman Broadcasting, Inc. ("Parent"), LBI Media Holdings, Inc. ("Holdings") and LBI Media, Inc. ("Media" and together with Parent and Holdings, the "Companies") announced today that they have extended the expiration date for their previously announced private exchanges offers (the "Exchange Offers") with respect to Media's 8½% senior subordinated notes due 2017 (the "Old Senior Subordinated Notes") and Holdings' 11% senior discount notes due 2013 (the "Discount Notes", and together with the Old Senior Subordinated Notes, the "Old Notes") and the solicitation of consents with respect to the proposed amendments to the indenture governing the Discount Notes (the "Discount Notes Consent Solicitation") to 5 p.m., New York City time, on December 14, 2012.

Old Notes may still be tendered and consents with respect to the Discount Notes Consent Solicitation may still be delivered until 5 p.m., New York City time, on December 14, 2012 unless the Exchange Offers or Discount Notes Consent Solicitation is terminated or withdrawn earlier, or unless the Exchange Offers or Discount Notes Consent Solicitation is further extended.  The Companies have the right to amend, terminate or withdraw any of the Exchange Offers or Discount Notes Consent Solicitation, at any time and for any reason, including if any of the conditions to the Exchange Offers or Discount Notes Consent Solicitation are not satisfied.  The Withdrawal Deadline (as defined in the Offering Memorandum) for the Exchange Offers and the Discount Notes Consent Solicitation has expired.  Old Notes that have previously been validly tendered (and not withdrawn) in the Exchange Offers and consents that have been validly delivered (and not withdrawn) in the Discount Notes Consent Solicitation may no longer be withdrawn.  

The terms of the Exchange Offers and Discount Notes Consent Solicitation were initially described in a confidential offering memorandum and consent solicitation statement, dated July 17, 2012 (the "Initial Offering Memorandum").  The Initial Offering Memorandum was supplemented by the Supplement to the Confidential Offering Memorandum and Consent Solicitation Statement dated July 24, 2012, the Second Supplement to the Confidential Offering Memorandum and Consent Solicitation Statement dated October 12, 2012, the Third Supplement to the Confidential Offering Memorandum and Consent Solicitation Statement dated October 18, 2012, the Fourth Supplement to the Confidential Offering Memorandum and Consent Solicitation Statement dated October 26, 2012, the Fifth Supplement to the Confidential Offering Memorandum and Consent Solicitation dated November 2, 2012, the Sixth Supplement to the Confidential Offering Memorandum and Consent Solicitation dated November 19, 2012 and the press releases issued by Media or Media and Holdings on August 14, 2012, August 30, 2012, September 21, 2012, September 28, 2012, October 5, 2012, October 12, 2012, October 26, 2012, November 2, 2012, November 13, 2012, November 19, 2012 and December 4, 2012 (collectively, the "Offering Memorandum").
