Item 1.01

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On May 17, 2021, AT&T Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”) and Magallanes, Inc., a Delaware corporation and wholly owned subsidiary of the Company (“Spinco”), entered into certain definitive agreements with Discovery, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Discovery”), and Drake Subsidiary, Inc., a Delaware corporation and wholly owned subsidiary of Discovery (“Merger Sub”). The definitive agreements provide for a transaction pursuant to which, subject to the terms and conditions of the agreements, the Company will transfer the business, operations and activities that constitute the WarnerMedia segment of the Company, subject to certain exceptions (as set forth in the Separation Agreement (as defined below)), to Spinco (the “Separation”). In connection with the Separation, Spinco will remain obligated for certain debt of the existing WarnerMedia business, make a cash payment to the Company, and in certain circumstances issue certain debt securities to the Company. After the Separation, the Company will distribute to its stockholders the shares of common stock, par value $0.01 per share, of Spinco (the “Spinco Common Stock”) held by the Company by way of either a pro rata dividend or an exchange offer (the “Distribution”). After the Distribution, Merger Sub will be merged with and into Spinco, with Spinco as the surviving entity and a wholly owned subsidiary of Discovery (the “Merger”). Following the completion of the Merger, holders of the shares of common stock, par value $1.00 per share, of the Company (the “Company Common Stock”) (as holders of Spinco Common Stock immediately following the Distribution) will own approximately 71% of the outstanding capital stock of Discovery on a fully diluted basis (computed using the treasury method). The transactions are expected to be tax-free to stockholders of the Company for U.S. federal income tax purposes, except to the extent that cash is paid to stockholders of the Company in lieu of fractional shares in the Distribution or the Merger.

The definitive agreements entered into in connection with the transactions include (1) an Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated May 17, 2021 (the “Merger Agreement”), by and among the Company, Spinco, Discovery and Merger Sub, (2) a Separation and Distribution Agreement, dated May 17, 2021 (the “Separation Agreement”), by and among the Company, Spinco and Discovery, (3) Voting Agreement, dated May 17, 2021 (the “Malone Voting Agreement”), by and between the Company and John C. Malone, and (4) Voting Agreement, dated May 17, 2021 (the “A/N Voting Agreement”, and together with the Malone Voting Agreement, the “Voting Agreements”), by and between the Company, Advance/Newhouse Programming Partnership and Advance/Newhouse Partnership (collectively, “Advance/Newhouse”, and together with John C. Malone, the “Stockholders”).

The Separation Agreement

The Separation Agreement sets forth the terms and conditions regarding the Separation of the WarnerMedia business from the Company. The Separation Agreement identifies and provides for the transfer of certain assets by the Company to Spinco and the assumption of certain liabilities by Spinco from the Company. The Separation Agreement further allocates other assets between Spinco and the Company and provides for various continuing relationships between the Company’s group of companies and Spinco’s group of companies.

The Separation Agreement also governs the rights and obligations of the Company and Spinco regarding the Distribution. At the Company’s election (subject to certain restrictions) pursuant to the Separation Agreement, the Distribution may be effected (i) by means of a pro rata dividend of Spinco Common Stock to the Company’s stockholders (the “Spin-Off”) or (ii) by way of an offer to exchange shares of Spinco Common Stock for outstanding shares of Company Common Stock (the “Exchange Offer”), followed by a pro rata, clean-up distribution to the Company’s stockholders of the unsubscribed shares of Spinco Common Stock held by the Company that were not exchanged in the exchange offer.

In connection with the Separation, Spinco will (1) assume debt of the existing WarnerMedia business, (2) pay a cash dividend to the Company (the “Spinco Special Cash Payment”), and (3) in certain circumstances issue to the Company debt instruments of Spinco (the “Spinco Debt Distribution”), in an aggregate amount of $43 billion, with the Spinco Special Cash Payment and Spinco Debt Distribution being subject to potential adjustments under the terms of the Separation Agreement. The Company expects to deliver the Spinco debt instruments in exchange for outstanding debt obligations to be identified by the Company prior to the consummation of the Distribution (the “Debt Exchange”). Each of the Company and Discovery will use reasonable best efforts to facilitate the Debt Exchange. Other than certain agreed terms, Discovery will determine the terms of the Spinco debt instruments, but the Company will not be required to accept any Spinco debt instruments that have a fair market value less than their face value (the “Par Exchange Requirement”). If the Par Exchange Requirement is not satisfied immediately prior to the Distribution, Spinco will draw on the Bridge Loan (as defined below) with respect to the amount of the Spinco Debt Distribution.

Consummation of the Distribution is subject to various conditions, including, among other things, (1) the substantial completion of the Separation and payment by Spinco to the Company of the Spinco Special Cash Payment, (2) the satisfaction or waiver of all conditions under the Merger Agreement, and (3) the delivery to the board of directors of the Company of a solvency opinion by an independent appraisal firm in respect of the solvency of Spinco and the solvency and surplus of the Company (such solvency opinion to be reasonably acceptable to the Company).

In addition to the foregoing, the Separation Agreement also contains numerous other provisions relating to certain ongoing relationships among the parties, including indemnification, sharing of financial information, treatment of nonpublic information, corporate records, assistance in litigation and dispute resolution.


The Merger Agreement

The Merger Agreement provides that, immediately following the consummation of the Distribution, Merger Sub will be merged with and into Spinco, with Spinco surviving as a wholly owned subsidiary of Discovery. On the closing date and prior to the effective time of the Merger, Discovery will amend and restate its certificate of incorporation to provide that, among other things, (1) all issued and outstanding shares of Discovery’s Series C-1 Preferred Stock, par value $0.01 per share, will be reclassified and converted into shares of Series C Common Stock, par value $0.01 per share, of Discovery, (2) all issued and outstanding shares of Discovery’s Series A-1 Preferred Stock, par value $0.01 per share, will be reclassified and converted into shares of Series A Common Stock, par value $0.01 per share, of Discovery and (3) all issued and outstanding shares of Discovery’s Series A Common Stock, par value $0.01 per share (including those shares of Series A Common Stock issued and outstanding as a result of the reclassification and conversion from shares of Series A-1 Preferred Stock), Series B Common Stock, par value $0.01 per share, and Series C Common Stock, par value $0.01 per share (including those shares of Series C Common Stock issued and outstanding as a result of the reclassification and conversion from shares of Series C-1 Preferred Stock), will be reclassified and converted into shares of Common Stock, par value $0.01 per share, of Discovery (“Discovery Common Stock”, and such reclassification and conversion as described in clauses (1), (2) and (3), the “Reclassification”).

As a result of the Merger, each share of Spinco Common Stock then issued and outstanding (other than each share of Spinco Common Stock held by Spinco as treasury stock or by Spinco or its subsidiaries, which will be cancelled without consideration) will automatically be converted into the right to receive a number of shares of Discovery Common Stock such that the aggregate number of shares of Discovery Common Stock issued to holders of Company Common Stock as a result of the Merger represent approximately 71% of the outstanding shares of Discovery Common Stock on a fully diluted basis (computed using the treasury method) following the completion of the Merger.

The Merger Agreement also provides that, as of immediately following the effective time of the Merger, Discovery will set the size of its board of directors (the “Discovery Board”) at 13 members, consisting of five directors designated by the Discovery Board, and the Chief Executive Officer of Discovery as of immediately after the effective time, and seven directors designated by the Company (including the director who will serve as the Chairperson of the Discovery Board). In addition, the Merger Agreement provides that David Zaslav, the current Chief Executive Officer of Discovery will be appointed as Chief Executive Officer of the combined company.

Completion of the Merger is subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain closing conditions, including, among other things, (1) consummation of the Distribution; (2) approval of the transactions by Discovery’s stockholders, (3) the listing of Discovery Common Stock issuable to holders of Spinco Common Stock on Nasdaq; (4) receipt of applicable regulatory approvals, including the expiration or early termination of the statutory waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended, and other required regulatory approvals; (5) the absence of any law or order prohibiting the consummation of the transactions; (6) the effectiveness of the registration statements to be filed by Discovery and Spinco with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) pursuant to the Merger Agreement; (6) the absence of any material adverse effect (as defined in the Merger Agreement) on either the WarnerMedia Business or Discovery; (7) the receipt of a private letter ruling from the Internal Revenue Service (the “IRS”) to the effect that the Distribution and certain related transactions will qualify for tax-free treatment under the Internal Revenue Code (the “Code”); and (8) the Company’s receipt of the Spinco Special Cash Payment in accordance with the terms of the Separation Agreement.

Prior to the closing, the Company will seek to obtain a private letter ruling from the IRS that the transactions (including the Separation and the Distribution) will qualify as a tax-free reorganization under the Code.

The Company, Spinco, Discovery and Merger Sub each make certain customary representations, warranties and covenants, as applicable, in the Merger Agreement.

In addition, Discovery and the Company have agreed, among other things, that neither they nor any of their subsidiaries will (1) solicit alternative transactions or (2) enter into discussions concerning, or provide information or data in connection with, alternative transactions, except under limited circumstances described in the Merger Agreement. Discovery has agreed that it will be obligated to hold a meeting of its stockholders to vote on the transaction even if the board of directors of Discovery has made an RMT Partner Change of Recommendation (as defined in the Merger Agreement). However, in certain circumstances after the occurrence of a Triggering Event (as defined in the Merger Agreement), the Company or Discovery may terminate the Merger Agreement to enter into definitive agreements for a Spinco Superior Proposal or an RMT Partner Superior Proposal, respectively (each as defined in the Merger Agreement).

The Merger Agreement also contains covenants relating to obtaining financing for the various payments and issuances that Spinco will be making in connection with the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement and the Separation Agreement.

The Merger Agreement contains certain customary termination rights for the Company and Discovery, including, without limitation, a right for either party to terminate if the Merger is not consummated on or before July 15, 2023 (the “Outside Date”). Upon the termination of the Merger Agreement under specified circumstances, Discovery will be required to pay the Company a termination fee of $720 million or the Company will be required to pay Discovery a termination fee of $1.77 billion. Such circumstances would be in connection with certain terminations related to or following an RMT Partner Superior Proposal, a Spinco Superior Proposal or an Intervening Event (each as defined in the Merger Agreement).

The Merger Agreement also provides the methodology by which certain expenses will be borne.


The Voting Agreements

John C. Malone and Advance/Newhouse, as beneficial owners of shares of Discovery’s capital stock representing, in the aggregate, approximately 44% of the voting power of the issued and outstanding shares of Discovery capital stock as of May 17, 2021, entered into the Voting Agreements with the Company under which the Stockholders agreed to vote the shares of Discovery capital stock owned by them in favor of approval of the issuance of Discovery Common Stock to the Company stockholders, the amendment of Discovery’s certificate of incorporation and the Merger, even if the board of directors of Discovery changes its recommendation that the stockholders of Discovery approve the transactions.

In addition, Advance/Newhouse also entered into a Consent Agreement with Discovery, pursuant to which Advance/Newhouse executed and delivered an irrevocable and unconditional consent to the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement, including the Merger and the Reclassification, in connection with their approval right over the transactions as holders of shares of preferred stock of Discovery.

The Spinco Bridge Commitment Letter

On May 17, 2021, Spinco entered into a commitment letter (the “Bridge Commitment Letter”), by and among Spinco, Goldman Sachs Bank, USA. and Goldman Sachs Lending Partners LLC (collectively, “Goldman Sachs”) and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. (“JPMorgan”), pursuant to which Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan commit to provide to Spinco $41.5 billion in an aggregate principal amount of senior unsecured bridge term loans (the “Bridge Loans”), such commitment to be reduced by, among other things, (1) the amount of net cash proceeds received by Spinco (and following the consummation of the Merger, Discovery) from certain equity and debt issuances, (2) term loan commitments under certain qualifying term loan facilities and (3) certain financings in connection with the Debt Exchange. The proceeds of any funded Bridge Loans will be used by Spinco on the closing date to make the Spinco Special Cash Payment (and, if the Company so elects, a cash dividend in lieu of the Spinco Debt Distribution) and to otherwise fund the transactions contemplated hereby and to pay the related transaction fees and expenses. The commitments under the Bridge Commitment Letter are subject to customary closing conditions.

 

Item 7.01.

Regulation FD Disclosure.

On May 17, 2021, the Company and Discovery issued a joint press release announcing the parties’ entry into definitive agreements in connection with a Reverse Morris Trust transaction. A copy of this press release is furnished on Exhibit 99.1 hereto and is incorporated herein by reference.

On May 17, 2021, the Company will hold an investor call relating to the transactions contemplated by the definitive agreements. The Company will make available on the investor relations section of its website an investor presentation for reference during such call. A copy of the investor presentation is furnished on Exhibit 99.2 hereto and is incorporated herein by reference.

The information in this Item 7.01, including the exhibit attached hereto, shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing by the Company under the Securities Act of 1933 or the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.

 

Item 8.01.

Other Events.

Following the completion of the transactions described under Item 1.01 and subject to the approval of the board of directors of the Company, the Company expects an annual dividend payout ratio of 40% to 43% on anticipated free cash flow of over $20 billion.

Free cash flow total dividend payout ratio is total dividends paid divided by free cash flow. Free cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure that is frequently used by investors and credit rating agencies to provide relevant and useful information. Free cash flow is cash from operating activities minus capital expenditures. Due to high variability and difficulty in predicting items that impact cash from operating activities and capital expenditures, the Company is not able to provide a reconciliation between projected free cash flow and the most comparable GAAP metric without unreasonable effort.

The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic may give rise to risks that are currently unknown or amplify the risks associated with the foregoing factors.

These risks, as well as other risks associated with the proposed transaction, will be more fully discussed in the proxy statement/prospectus that will be included in the registration statements that will be filed with the SEC in connection with the proposed transaction. Discussions of additional risks and uncertainties are contained in AT&T’s and Discovery’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
