Commencement of Private Placement

 

On December 6, 2012, MDC Partners Inc. (the “Company”) commenced a private placement of an additional $80 million aggregate principal amount of its senior unsecured notes due 2016 (the “Notes”). The Company intends to use the net proceeds of this offering to fully repay the amount drawn under its senior secured revolving credit facility that matures on October 23, 2015 and, to the extent of any remaining proceeds, for general corporate purposes.

 

The Notes have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the Securities Act”). The Notes may not be offered or sold within the United States or to U.S. persons, except to “qualified institutional buyers” in reliance on the exemption from registration provided by Rule 144A and to certain persons in offshore transactions in reliance on Regulation S. You are hereby notified that sellers of the Notes may be relying on the exemption from the provisions of Section 5 of the Securities Act provided by Rule 144A. This announcement does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy Notes in any jurisdiction in which such an offer or sale would be unlawful.
