NEW YORK, Aug. 13, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — (NASDAQ:STGW) — Stagwell Inc.

At issuance, the Notes will be guaranteed by all of Stagwell’s domestic subsidiaries that guarantee the Issuer’s amended and restated $500 million senior secured revolving credit facility, except for certain entities that will be added as guarantors of the Notes within 90 days after the issue date of the Notes. The Notes are expected to be issued on August 20, 2021, subject to customary closing conditions. No assurance can be made that the Offering will be consummated on its proposed terms, or at all.

This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the Notes or any other security and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any jurisdiction in which, or to any persons to whom, such offering, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
