KTRB(AM) Asset Purchase Agreement

On July 10, 2018, New Inspiration Broadcasting Company, Inc., a subsidiary of Salem Media Group, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a related party asset purchase agreement (“APA”) with East Bay Broadcasting, LLC, a California limited liability company owned by Edward G. Atsinger III, Chief Executive Officer of the Company, and Stuart W. Epperson, Chairman of the Board of the Company (the “Transaction”). The APA is for the purchase of radio station KTRB(AM) (the “Station”) in the San Francisco, CA market. The Company has been operating the Station to a Local Marketing Agreement (“LMA”) since December 15, 2016 which will be terminated upon the consummation of the Transaction. As part of the Transaction, the Company will assume a Diplex Agreement to use certain real property located at 3636 Enterprise Ave., Hayward, California 94545 on a nonexclusive basis as the transmitter site for the Station (the “Real Property”) in which Salem Broadcasting Company, a company owned by Messrs. Atsinger and Epperson, are the lessors.

The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee (the “Committee”) of the Company reviewed the Transaction, including an appraisal of the Station performed by a licensed broker and reports related to the financial performance of the Station during the LMA period, and determined that the terms of the Transaction were no less favorable to the Company than those that would be available in a comparable transaction in arm’s length dealings with an unrelated third party. The material terms of the APA are as follows:

Date Assets Acquired Purchase Price
July 10, 2018 All assets, except for the Real Property, used in the operation of radio station KTRB(AM) Five Million One Hundred Twenty-Five Thousand Dollars ($5,125,000)
