Clear Channel Investors Fret About Buyout

By Sarah McBride and Matthew Karnitschnig

The sound of silence is awfully hard to interpret.

But that is exactly what Clear Channel Communications Inc. investors were doing yesterday, and their interpretation was that the $19 billion buyout plan for the company was in peril. Combined with an already jittery market, the new worries sent the company's stock down 7.2%. Over the past two days, the value of the country's largest radio broadcaster has fallen by $2.3 billion.

Neither Clear Channel, nor its two buyers -- Thomas H. Lee Partners and Bain Capital -- were commenting yesterday about the transaction, which was first inked in November 2006.
