  1. Basis of Presentation  

You (the “Third Party”) understand that PwC has performed its audit of STG’s special-purpose combined financial statements as of December 31, 2023 and 2022 and for the years then ended. In connection with the Indentures, PwC has been requested to add you as a specified party of its report.  

You understand that items of possible interest to you or your representatives may not have been specifically addressed in the special purpose financial statements, and matters may have existed that would have been assessed differently by you or your representatives for your purposes. The special-purpose combined financial statements may not include all information or procedures deemed necessary for your or your representative’s purposes and certain findings and information may have been communicated to the Company that are not included in the special-purpose combined financial statements. In addition, you understand that the audit of the special-purpose combined financial statements should not be used or relied upon as a substitute for inquiries and procedures that you or your representatives would or should carry out.  

You understand that the special-purpose combined financial statements referred to above are prepared in accordance with the contractual basis reporting framework described in the Indentures. You acknowledge that the special purpose combined financial statements are not intended to be a presentation in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“US GAAP”), and you agree that the basis of presentation is appropriate for your purposes and permitted pursuant to the Indentures.  

The basis of presentation includes the following modifications to US GAAP:  

“STG will not apply accounting treatment and/or disclosures required by consolidation principles under US GAAP (i.e Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 810, Consolidation) for those interests held by STG or its subsidiaries. For the avoidance of doubt, the intent of this paragraph is that only STG’s majority owned subsidiaries will be consolidated under ASC 810.  

In consideration of PwC allowing the Company to provide you access to PwC’s report on its audit of the special-purpose combined financial statements, you acknowledge and agree that you do not acquire any rights as a result of such access and acknowledge that PwC does not assume any duties or obligations to you or your representatives in connection with such access.  

Additionally, you agree to release PwC and PwC personnel from any claims of any nature by you or your representatives or beneficiaries or assigns that arise as a result of PwC permitting you access to the report or its contents and/or your review of the report or its contents.  

This agreement and all matters arising under or relating hereto (whether in contract, statute, tort, such as negligence, or otherwise) shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of New York (without regard to its conflicts of laws principles). The foregoing releases shall apply only to claims based on the services provided in connection with the audit of STG’s special-purpose combined financial statements as of December 31, 2023 and 2022 and for the years then ended, and do not apply to any claim arising from or related to the audit of the consolidated financial statements of Sinclair.  

You understand and agree that PwC is intended to be a third-party beneficiary of the preceding  Sections 1. through 5.
