Summary

Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Announces Filing of a Class Action Lawsuit Against Tribune Media Company

Notice is hereby given that Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP has filed a class action lawsuit in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware, case No. 1:17-cv-00919, on behalf of shareholders of Tribune Media Company (“Tribune” or the “Company”) (NYSE:TRCO) who have been harmed by Tribune’s and its board of directors’ (the “Board”) alleged violations of Sections 14(a) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) in connection with  the proposed merger of the Company with Sinclair Broadcast Group, Inc. (“Sinclair”).

On May 8, 2017, Tribune and Sinclair jointly announced they had entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (“Proposed Transaction”) under which each outstanding share of Tribune common stock will be exchanged for $35.00 in cash and 0.23 shares of Sinclair (the “Merger Consideration”), representing an implied value of $43.50 per share.

The complaint alleges that the Form S-4 Registration Statement (the “S-4”) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on June 30, 2017, violates Sections 14(a) and 20(a) of the Exchange Act because it provides materially incomplete and misleading information about the Company and the Proposed Transaction, including information concerning the Company’s financial projections and analysis, on which the Board relied to recommend the Proposed Transaction as fair to Tribune shareholders.
