BEASLEY BROADCAST GROUP, INC.

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)

(1) Interim Financial Statements

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements of Beasley Broadcast Group, Inc. and its subsidiaries (the “Company”) included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018. These financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, the financial statements reflect all adjustments necessary for a fair statement of the financial position and results of operations for the interim periods presented and all such adjustments are of a normal and recurring nature. The Company’s results are subject to seasonal fluctuations, therefore the results shown on an interim basis are not necessarily indicative of results for the full year.

(2) Recent Accounting Pronouncements

In February 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued guidance to increase transparency and comparability among organizations by recognizing lease assets and lease liabilities on the balance sheet and disclosing key information about leasing arrangements. A lessee should recognize in the statement of financial position a liability to make lease payments (the lease liability) and a right-of-use asset representing its right to use the underlying asset for the lease term. There continues to be a differentiation between finance leases and operating leases, however lease assets and lease liabilities arising from operating leases should now be recognized in the statement of financial position. New disclosures are required to meet the objective of enabling users of financial statements to assess the amount, timing, and uncertainty of cash flows arising from leases. In 2018 and 2019, the FASB issued several updates to address certain practical expedients, codification improvements, and targeted improvements to the original guidance. On January 1, 2019, the Company adopted the new guidance retrospectively at the beginning of the period of adoption through a cumulative-effect adjustment. On January 1, 2019, the Company recorded a lease liability of $43.1 million and right-of-use assets of $38.8 million. The Company recorded a cumulative effect of initially applying the new standard of $0.9 million on the opening balance of retained earnings. The comparative information has not been restated and continues to be reported under the accounting guidance in effect for that period.

(3) Acquisitions and Dispositions

On June 10, 2019, the Company entered into an asset purchase agreement to acquire WDMK-FM and three translators in Detroit, MI from Urban One, Inc. for $13.5 million in cash. The purchase price will be partially financed with borrowings from the Company’s credit facility and partially funded with cash from operations. The acquisition, which is subject to approval by the Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”) and other customary closing conditions, is expected to close during the third quarter of 2019.

On March 28, 2019, the Company completed the sale of certain land and improvements in Augusta, GA to a third party for $0.5 million. As a result of the sale, the Company recorded a gain of $0.4 million in the quarter ended March 31, 2019.

On March 15, 2019, the Company agreed to cancel a broadband radio service license in Chattanooga, TN in exchange for a fee of $3.3 million received from Clearwire Spectrum Holdings LLC (“Clearwire”). The Company had previously leased the channels under the broadband radio service license to Clearwire under an agreement that ended on March 15, 2019. As a result of the license cancelation, the Company recorded a gain of $3.1 million in the quarter ended March 31, 2019.

On September 27, 2018, the Company completed the acquisition of WXTU-FM in Philadelphia from Entercom Communications Corp. for $38.0 million in cash. The purchase price was partially financed with $35.0 million in borrowings from the Company’s credit facility and partially funded with $3.0 million of cash from operations. On July 19, 2018, the Company also entered into a local marketing agreement (“LMA”) with Entercom Communications Corp. and began operating WXTU-FM on July 23, 2018. During the term of the LMA, the Company included net revenues and station operating expenses, including the associated LMA fee from operating WXTU-FM, in its consolidated financial statements. The LMA ended on September 27, 2018. The acquisition broadened and diversified the Company’s local radio broadcasting platform and revenue base in the Philadelphia radio market. Further information regarding the acquisition is included in Note 3 to the consolidated financial statements contained in Item 8 of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018 filed on February 19, 2019.

As of June 30, 2019, the credit facility consisted of a term loan with a remaining balance of $245.5 million and a revolving credit facility with a maximum commitment of $20.0 million. As of June 30, 2019, the Company had $20.0 million in available commitments under its revolving credit facility. At the Company’s option, the credit facility may bear interest at either (i) the London Interbank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”) plus a margin of 4.0% or (ii) the base rate plus a margin of 3.0%. The LIBOR interest rate for the term loan is subject to a 1% floor and the base rate is subject to a 2% floor. Interest payments are, for loans based on LIBOR, due at the end of each applicable interest period unless the interest period is longer than three months, in which case they are due at the end of each three month period. Interest payments for loans based on the base rate are due quarterly. The revolving credit facility carried interest, based on LIBOR, at 6.4% as of June 30, 2019 and matures on November 17, 2022. The term loan carried interest, based on LIBOR, at 6.4% as of June 30, 2019 and matures on November 1, 2023.

As of December 31, 2018, the credit facility consisted of a term loan with a remaining balance of $252.0 million and a revolving credit facility with a maximum commitment of $20.0 million. The revolving credit facility and term loan carried interest, based on LIBOR, at 6.5% as of December 31, 2018.

The credit agreement requires mandatory prepayments equal to 50% of Excess Cash Flow (as defined in the credit agreement) when the Company’s Total Leverage Ratio (as defined in the credit agreement) is greater than 3.5x; mandatory prepayments equal to 25% of Excess Cash Flow when the Total Leverage Ratio is less than or equal to 3.5x but greater than 3.0x; and no mandatory prepayments when the Total Leverage Ratio is less than or equal to 3.0x. Mandatory prepayments of Excess Cash Flow are due 95 days after year end. The credit agreement also requires mandatory prepayments for defined amounts from net proceeds of asset sales, net insurance proceeds, and net proceeds of debt issuances.

The credit agreement requires the Company to comply with certain financial covenants which are defined in the credit agreement. These financial covenants include a First Lien Leverage Ratio that will be tested at the end of each quarter. For the period from June 30, 2019 through December 31, 2019, the maximum First Lien Leverage Ratio is 5.75x. The maximum First Lien Leverage Ratio is 5.25x for March 31, 2020 and thereafter.

The credit facility is secured by substantially all assets of the Company and its subsidiaries and is guaranteed jointly and severally by the Company and its subsidiaries. If the Company defaults under the terms of the credit agreement, the Company and its subsidiaries may be required to perform under their guarantees. As of June 30, 2019, the maximum amount of undiscounted payments the Company and its applicable subsidiaries would have been required to make in the event of default was $245.5 million. The guarantees for the credit facility expire on November 17, 2022 for the revolving credit facility and on November 1, 2023 for the term loan facility.

Failure to comply with financial covenants, scheduled interest payments, scheduled principal repayments, or any other terms of the credit agreement could result in the acceleration of the maturity of the Company’s outstanding debt, which could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business or results of operations. As of June 30, 2019, the Company was in compliance with all applicable financial covenants under the credit agreement.

The aggregate scheduled principal repayments of the credit facility for the remainder of 2019 and the next four years are as follows:

(6) Leases

The Company leases office space in several markets. Some leases are for the entire building while others are for certain office space in a building. The Company also rents land beneath a building owned by the Company in Augusta, GA.

The Company leases radio towers for the majority of its radio stations. Leases for FM radio stations are generally to install broadcast equipment on a radio tower and in a transmitter building adjacent to the radio tower. Leases for AM radio stations are generally for the entire radio tower array and the adjacent transmitter building. The Company also leases tower space to install translator equipment.

Certain rental agreements for office space and radio towers contain non-lease components such as common area maintenance and utilities. The Company elected to apply the practical expedient that permits lessees to make an accounting policy election to account for each separate lease component of an office space and radio tower lease contract and its associated non-lease components as a single lease component. Certain rental agreements for office space and radio towers also include taxes and insurance which are not considered lease components.

Consideration for office space and radio tower leases generally includes monthly payments with either a fixed annual increase or a variable annual increase based on a consumer price index. Leases with variable annual increases based on a consumer price index are initially measured using the index at the commencement date. Subsequent changes to variable increases based on a consumer price index will be recognized in the statement of operations in the period of change. The lease term begins at the commencement date and is determined on that date based on the noncancelable term of the lease, together with periods covered by an option to extend the lease if the Company is reasonably certain to exercise that option. When evaluating whether the Company is reasonably certain to exercise an option to renew the lease, the Company is required to assess all relevant factors that create an economic incentive for the Company to exercise the renewal.

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)

The Company rents certain office equipment, such as copiers, in several markets. Consideration for office equipment leases generally includes fixed monthly payments for the lease term. The lease term begins at the commencement date and is determined on that date based on the noncancelable term of the lease. Office equipment leases generally do not include options to extend the lease.

The Company received several vehicles through acquisitions that have completed the original lease term and are now leased on a month to month basis. The vehicles are expected to be acquired or returned to the lessor within twelve months. The Company has made an accounting policy election to not record leases with a term of 12 months or less on its balance sheet. Instead, the Company recognizes lease payments as an expense on a straight-line basis over the lease term.

The various discount rates are based on the Company’s incremental borrowing rate due to the rate implicit in the leases being not readily determinable. The Company’s incremental borrowing rate is the rate of interest that the Company would have to pay to borrow on a collateralized basis over a similar term an amount equal to the lease payments in a similar economic environment. The Company used the current borrowing rate on its credit facility, adjusted for the effects of collateralization, to determine the various rates it would pay to finance similar transactions over similar time periods.

The Company leases certain office space and radio towers from related parties. The current lease expiration dates range from December 2020 through December 2027 and annual rental expense ranges from $13,000 to $0.2 million. Related party right-of-use assets and lease liabilities are included in the amounts reported on the accompanying balance sheet as of June 30, 2019 and future minimum payments for related party leases are included in the tables below. Further information regarding related party leases is included in Note 16 to the consolidated financial statements contained in Item 8 of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018 filed on February 19, 2019.

The Company elected to apply a package of practical expedients that allows it not to reassess (i) whether any expired or existing contracts are or contain leases, (ii) lease classification for any expired or existing leases, and (iii) initial direct costs for any expired or existing leases.

Certain amounts related to finance leases previously reported in the 2018 financial statements have been reclassified to conform to the 2019 presentation.

The Company recognizes revenue when it satisfies a performance obligation under a contract with an advertiser. The transaction price is allocated to performance obligations based on executed contracts which represent relative standalone selling prices. Payment is generally due within 30 days although certain advertisers are required to pay in advance. Revenues are reported at the amount the Company expects to be entitled to receive under the contract. The Company has elected to use the practical expedient to expense sales commissions as incurred. Payments received from advertisers before the performance obligation is satisfied are recorded as deferred revenue in the balance sheet. Substantially all deferred revenue is recognized within twelve months of the payment date.

Commercial advertising includes revenue from the sale or trade of aired commercial spots to advertisers directly or through national, regional or local advertising agencies. Each commercial spot is considered a performance obligation. Revenue is recognized when the commercial spots have aired. Trade sales are recorded at the estimated fair value of the goods or services received. If commercial spots are aired before the goods or services are received then a trade sales receivable is recorded. If goods or services are received before the commercial spots are aired then a trade sales payable is recorded.

Digital advertising includes revenue from the sale of streamed commercial spots, station-owned assets and third party products. Each streamed commercial spot, station-owned asset and third party product is considered a performance obligation. Revenue is recognized when the commercial spots have streamed. Station-owned assets are generally scheduled over a period of time and revenue is recognized over time as the digital items are used for advertising content except for streamed commercial spots. Third-party products are generally scheduled over a period of time with an impression target each month. Revenue from the sale of third-party products is recognized over time as the digital items are used for advertising content and impression targets are met each month.

Other revenue includes revenue from concerts, promotional events, talent fees and other miscellaneous items. Revenue is generally recognized when the event is completed, as the promotional events are completed, or as the talent services are completed.

(9) Stock-Based Compensation

The Beasley Broadcast Group, Inc. 2007 Equity Incentive Award Plan (the “2007 Plan”) permits the Company to issue up to 7.5 million shares of Class A common stock. The 2007 Plan allows for eligible employees, directors and certain consultants of the Company to receive restricted stock units, shares of restricted stock, stock options or other stock-based awards.

(10) Income Taxes

The Company’s effective tax rate was 28% and 31% for the three months ended June 30, 2018 and 2019, respectively, and 57% and 31% for the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2019, respectively. These rates differ from the federal statutory rate of 21% due to the effect of state income taxes and certain expenses that are not deductible for tax purposes. The effective tax rate for the six months ended June 30, 2018 also reflects a $1.2 million increase due to the change in fair value of contingent consideration during that time period.

(11) Financial Instruments

The carrying amount of the Company’s financial instruments including cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable and accounts payable approximate fair value due to the short term nature of these financial instruments.

The carrying amount of the Company’s long-term debt, including the term loan and the revolving credit facility as of June 30, 2019 was $245.5 million, which approximated fair value based on current market interest rates. The carrying amount of the Company’s long-term debt as of December 31, 2018 was $252.0 million, which approximated fair value based on current market interest rates.

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Financial Statement Presentation

The following discussion provides a brief description of certain key items that appear in our financial statements and general factors that impact these items.

Net Revenue. Our net revenue is primarily derived from the sale of commercial spots to advertisers directly or through national, regional or local advertising agencies. Revenues are reported at the amount we expect to be entitled to receive under the contract. Local revenue generally consists of commercial advertising sales, digital advertising sales and other sales to advertisers in a radio station’s local market either directly to the advertiser or through the advertiser’s agency. National revenue generally consists of commercial advertising sales through advertiser agencies. National advertiser agencies generally purchase advertising for multiple markets. National sales are generally facilitated by our national representation firm, which serves as our agent in these transactions.

Our net revenue is generally determined by the advertising rates that we are able to charge and the number of advertisements that we can broadcast without jeopardizing listener levels. Advertising rates are primarily based on the following factors:

 

   

a radio station’s audience share in the demographic groups targeted by advertisers as measured principally by periodic reports issued by Nielson Audio;

 

   

the number of radio stations, as well as other forms of media, in the market competing for the attention of the same demographic groups;

 

   

the supply of, and demand for, radio advertising time; and

 

   

the size of the market.

Our net revenue is affected by general economic conditions, competition and our ability to improve operations at our market clusters. Seasonal revenue fluctuations are also common in the radio broadcasting industry and are primarily due to variations in advertising expenditures by local and national advertisers. Our revenues are typically lowest in the first calendar quarter of the year.

We use trade sales agreements to reduce cash paid for operating costs and expenses by exchanging advertising airtime for goods or services; however, we endeavor to minimize trade revenue in order to maximize cash revenue from our available airtime.

Table of Contents

We also continue to invest in digital support services to develop and promote our radio station websites, applications, and other distribution platforms. We derive revenue from our websites through the sale of advertiser promotions and advertising on our websites and the sale of advertising airtime during audio streaming of our radio stations over the internet. We also generate revenue from selling other digital products.

Operating Expenses. Our operating expenses consist primarily of (i) programming, engineering, sales, advertising and promotion, and general and administrative expenses incurred at our radio stations, (ii) general and administrative expenses, including compensation and other expenses, incurred at our corporate offices, and (iii) depreciation and amortization. We strive to control our operating expenses by centralizing certain functions at our corporate offices and consolidating certain functions in each of our market clusters.

Critical Accounting Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles requires us to make estimates and assumptions that affect reported amounts and related disclosures. We consider an accounting estimate to be critical if:

 

   

it requires assumptions to be made that were uncertain at the time the estimate was made; and

 

   

changes in the estimate or different estimates that could have been selected could have a material impact on our results of operations or financial condition.

Our critical accounting estimates are described in Item 7 of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018. There have been no material changes to our critical accounting estimates during the second quarter of 2019.

Corporate General and Administrative Expenses. Corporate general and administrative expenses increased $1.0 million during the three months ended June 30, 2019 as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2018 primarily due to a $0.7 million increase in cash compensation expense which was primarily due to an increase in the number of employees at our corporate offices.

Change in Fair Value of Contingent Consideration. In connection with the acquisition of Greater Media, a certain number of shares of our Class A common stock placed in escrow on the acquisition date were forfeited based on a working capital adjustment. The fair value of the forfeited shares decreased $2.9 million due to a change in our stock price from January 1, 2018 to March 15, 2018, the date the forfeited shares were recorded in treasury stock. In addition, a number of shares of our Class A common stock were returned to us by the former stockholders of Greater Media based on certain proceeds from the sale of Greater Media’s tower assets. The fair value of the returned shares decreased $1.6 million due to a change in our stock price from January 1, 2018 to March 15, 2018, the date the returned shares were recorded in treasury stock.

Gain on Dispositions. On March 28, 2019, we completed the sale of certain land and improvements in Augusta, GA for $0.5 million. As a result of the sale, we recorded a gain of $0.4 million in the six months ended June 30, 2019. On March 15, 2019, we agreed to cancel a broadband radio service license in Chattanooga, TN in exchange for a fee of $3.3 million. As a result of the license cancelation, we recorded a gain of $3.1 million in the six months ended June 30, 2019.

Interest Expense. Interest expense increased $1.7 million during the six months ended June 30, 2019 as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2018. The primary factors affecting interest expense were the increase in long-term debt outstanding and the applicable interest rate.

Income Tax Expense. Our effective tax rate was 57% and 31% for the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2019, respectively. These rates differ from the federal statutory rate of 21% due to the effect of state income taxes and certain expenses that are not deductible for tax purposes. The effective tax rate for the six months ended June 30, 2018 also reflects a $1.2 million increase due to the change in fair value of contingent consideration during that time period.

Net Income. Net income during the six months ended June 30, 2019 was $5.6 million, an increase of $3.9 million compared to net income of $1.8 million during the six months ended June 30, 2018 as a result of the factors described above.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Overview. Our primary sources of liquidity are internally generated cash flow and our revolving credit facility. Our primary liquidity needs have been, and for the next twelve months and thereafter, are expected to continue to be, for working capital, debt service, and other general corporate purposes, including capital expenditures and radio station acquisitions. Historically, our capital expenditures have not been significant. In addition to property and equipment associated with radio station acquisitions, our capital expenditures have generally been, and are expected to continue to be, related to the maintenance of our office and studio space, maintenance of our radio towers and equipment, and digital products and information technology. We have also purchased or constructed office and studio space in some of our markets to facilitate the consolidation of our operations.

Credit Facility. On November 17, 2017 we and our wholly owned subsidiary, Beasley Mezzanine Holdings, LLC (the “Borrower”), entered into a credit agreement with U.S. Bank, National Association, as administrative agent and collateral agent, providing for a term loan B facility in the amount of $225.0 million (the “term loan facility”) and a revolving credit facility of $20.0 million (the “revolving credit facility,” and together with the term loan facility, the “credit facility”). On September 27, 2018, we borrowed an additional $35.0 million from the term loan facility. The proceeds were used for the acquisition of WXTU-FM in Philadelphia.

As of June 30, 2019, the credit facility consisted of a term loan with a remaining balance of $245.5 million and a revolving credit facility with a maximum commitment of $20.0 million. As of June 30, 2019, we had $20.0 million in available commitments under our revolving credit facility. At our option, the credit facility may bear interest at either (i) the London Interbank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”) plus a margin of 4.0% or (ii) the base rate plus a margin of 3.0%. The LIBOR interest rate for the term loan is subject to a 1% floor and the base rate is subject to a 2% floor. Interest payments are, for loans based on LIBOR, due at the end of each applicable interest period unless the interest period is longer than three months, in which case they are due at the end of each three month period. Interest payments for loans based on the base rate are due quarterly. The revolving credit facility carried interest, based on LIBOR, at 6.4% as of June 30, 2019 and matures on November 17, 2022. The term loan carried interest, based on LIBOR, at 6.4% as of June 30, 2019 and matures on November 1, 2023.

The credit agreement requires mandatory prepayments equal to 50% of Excess Cash Flow (as defined in the credit agreement) when our Total Leverage Ratio (as defined in the credit agreement) is greater than 3.5x; mandatory prepayments equal to 25% of Excess Cash Flow when our Total Leverage Ratio is less than or equal to 3.5x but greater than 3.0x; and no mandatory prepayments when our Total Leverage Ratio is less than or equal to 3.0x. Mandatory prepayments of Excess Cash Flow are due 95 days after year end. The credit agreement also requires mandatory prepayments for defined amounts from net proceeds of asset sales, net insurance proceeds, and net proceeds of debt issuances.

Table of Contents

The credit agreement requires us to comply with certain financial covenants which are defined in the credit agreement. These financial covenants include a First Lien Leverage Ratio that will be tested at the end of each quarter. For the period from June 30, 2019 through December 31, 2019, the maximum First Lien Leverage Ratio is 5.75x. The maximum First Lien Leverage Ratio is 5.25x for March 31, 2020 and thereafter.

The credit facility is secured by substantially all assets of the Company and its subsidiaries and is guaranteed jointly and severally by the Company and its subsidiaries. If we default under the terms of the credit agreement, the Company and its subsidiaries may be required to perform under their guarantees. As of June 30, 2019, the maximum amount of undiscounted payments the Company and its applicable subsidiaries would have been required to make in the event of default was $245.5 million. The guarantees for the credit facility expire on November 17, 2022 for the revolving credit facility and on November 1, 2023 for the term loan facility.

Failure to comply with financial covenants, scheduled interest payments, scheduled principal repayments, or any other terms of our credit agreement could result in the acceleration of the maturity of our outstanding debt, which could have a material adverse effect on our business or results of operations. As of June 30, 2019, we were in compliance with all applicable financial covenants under our credit agreement.

The aggregate scheduled principal repayments of the credit facility for the remainder of 2019 and the next four years are as follows:

Our credit agreement permits us to repurchase sufficient shares of our common stock to fund withholding taxes in connection with the vesting of restricted stock units and shares of restricted stock, subject to compliance with financial covenants, up to an aggregate amount of $2.5 million per year. We paid approximately $31,000 to repurchase 8,104 shares during the six months ended June 30, 2019.

Our credit agreement restricts our ability to pay cash dividends and to repurchase additional shares of our common stock. The credit agreement does permit, however, (i) additional dividends of up to an aggregate amount of $7.5 million each year if our Total Leverage Ratio is greater than 3.5x and up to an aggregate amount of $10.0 million each year if our Total Leverage Ratio is less than or equal to 3.5x, (ii) an amount equal to our excess cash flow each year that is not required to prepay the credit agreement, subject to maintaining a Total Leverage Ratio of no greater than 3.75x and (iii) unlimited dividends each year if our Total Leverage Ratio is less than 3.5x and our First Lien Leverage Ratio (as defined in the credit agreement) is less than 2.5x. We paid cash dividends of $2.8 million during the six months ended June 30, 2019. Also, on May 30, 2019, our board of directors declared a cash dividend of $0.05 per share on our Class A and Class B common stock. The dividend of $1.4 million in the aggregate was paid on July 5, 2019, to stockholders of record on June 28, 2019.

We expect to provide for future liquidity needs through one or a combination of the following sources of liquidity:

 

   

internally generated cash flow;

 

   

our revolving credit facility;

 

   

additional borrowings, other than under our revolving credit facility, to the extent permitted under our credit facility; and

 

   

additional equity offerings.

We believe that we will have sufficient liquidity and capital resources to permit us to provide for our liquidity requirements and meet our financial obligations for the next twelve months. However, poor financial results or unanticipated expenses could give rise to defaults under our credit facility, additional debt servicing requirements or other additional financing or liquidity requirements sooner than we expect, and we may not secure financing when needed or on acceptable terms.

Table of Contents

Our ability to reduce our Total Leverage Ratio, as defined by our credit agreement, by increasing operating cash flow and/or decreasing long-term debt will determine how much, if any, of the remaining commitments under our revolving credit facility will be available to us in the future. Poor financial results or unanticipated expenses could result in our failure to maintain or lower our total leverage ratio and we may not be permitted to make any additional borrowings under our revolving credit facility.

Cash Flows. The following summary table presents a comparison of our capital resources for the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2019 with respect to certain of our key measures affecting our liquidity. The changes set forth in the table are discussed in greater detail below.

On March 27, 2007, our board of directors approved the Beasley Broadcast Group, Inc. 2007 Equity Incentive Award Plan (the “2007 Plan”). The original ten year term of the 2007 Plan ended on March 27, 2017. Our stockholders approved an amendment to the 2007 Plan at the Annual Meeting of Stockholders on June 8, 2017 to, among other things, extend the term of the 2007 Plan until March 27, 2027. The 2007 Plan permits us to purchase sufficient shares to fund withholding taxes in connection with the vesting of restricted stock units and shares of restricted stock. Our credit agreement permits us to repurchase sufficient shares of our common stock to fund withholding taxes in connection with the vesting of restricted stock units and shares of restricted stock, subject to compliance with financial covenants, up to an aggregate amount of $2.5 million per year. All shares purchased during the three months ended June 30, 2019, were purchased to fund withholding taxes in connection with the vesting of restricted stock units and shares of restricted stock.
