(“iHC”), (i) demanded (the “Demand”) repayment of $25.0 million outstanding under the Revolving Promissory Note, dated as of November 10, 2005, between iHC, as maker, and CCOH, as payee (as amended by the first amendment dated as of December 23, 2009 and the second amendment dated as of October 23, 2013, the “Note”), and (ii) paid a special cash dividend to Class A and B stockholders of record at the closing of business on October 2, 2017, in an aggregate amount equal to $25.0 million, or $0.0687 per share, using proceeds of the Demand. As the indirect parent of CCOH, iHC received approximately 89.5%, or approximately $22.4 million, of the dividend proceeds through its wholly-owned subsidiaries.
