NEW YORK --(Business Wire)--

Under the terms of the transaction, LIN shareholders will receive either $27.82 in cash or 1.5762 shares of the new holding company for each share of LIN stock.

Additionally, on February 6, 2014, LIN issued its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year 2013, reporting strong increases in net revenues, local revenues, and interactive revenues. Specifically, LIN reported annual revenues of $652.4 million, an 18% increase compared to 2012.
