Newcastle Announces Tax Basis of New Media Distribution (3/10/14)

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--As previously disclosed, on February 14, 2014, Newcastle Investment Corp. (NYSE:NCT, “Newcastle” or the “Company”) completed the spin-off of New Media Investment Group Inc. (NYSE: NEWM, “New Media”) by distributing shares of New Media common stock to the holders of Newcastle common stock as of the spin-off record date (“Record Holders”), which was February 6, 2014. If you were not a Record Holder, the following information might not be applicable to you or your shares.

Tax Basis of Distributed New Media Stock

For U.S. federal income tax purposes, Newcastle intends to report its distribution of shares of New Media common stock (the “Distributed Shares”) as a taxable distribution equal to the fair market value of the Distributed Shares received in the distribution. The fair market value of the New Media common stock will be $12.30 per share. For U.S. federal income tax purposes, this amount will also be Record Holders’ adjusted tax basis in each Distributed Share.

Impact of Distribution on Newcastle Stockholders

For U.S. federal income tax purposes, Newcastle’s distributions (including cash dividends and stock distributions) in any year are treated as taxable dividends to the extent of its current and accumulated earnings and profits (“E&P”) for that year. The Distributed Shares are considered a stock distribution in the amount of $0.89 per Newcastle share, which is calculated by multiplying the fair market value of $12.30 per New Media share by the spin-off conversion ratio of 0.07219481485. The taxability of the stock distribution of the Distributed Shares will be determined in the context of all of Newcastle’s 2014 E&P and distributions, which will not be known until early 2015.

The above summary does not constitute tax advice. It does not purport to be complete or to describe the tax consequences that may apply to particular categories of stockholders. Each Newcastle stockholder should consult a personal tax advisor regarding the calculation of tax basis and the tax consequences of any distribution. For more information, please refer to New Media’s registration statement on Form S-1, as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 12, 2014.
