Interpublic Put Option Announced

On February 15, 2012, the Interpublic Group of Companies, Inc. (NYSE: IPG) announced that, as required by the terms of its 4.25% Convertible Senior Notes due 2023, it is notifying holders of the Notes that they have the right, pursuant to the terms of the Notes, to require Interpublic to purchase their Notes for cash on March 15, 2012. The Put Option expires on March 14, 2012 and entitles each holder of the Notes to require Interpublic to purchase all or part of such holder's Notes at a price equal to $1,000 per $1,000 principal amount of the Notes, plus any accrued and unpaid interest up to, but excluding, March 15, 2012. Interpublic expects, however, that there will be no such accrued and unpaid interest due as part of the purchase price paid on March 15, 2012 because that date is a regular interest payment date. Interpublic will pay the purchase price in cash. If all outstanding Notes are surrendered for purchase pursuant to the Put Option, the aggregate cash purchase price will be $400.0 million. Upon the occurrence of certain events described in the Notes, the Notes are convertible into 82.4612 shares of Interpublic's common stock per $1,000 principal amount of the Notes. On February 14, 2012, the last reported sales price of Interpublic's common stock on the New York Stock Exchange was $10.70 per share.
