NEW YORK, July 29, 2009 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ -- Omnicom Group Inc. (NYSE: OMC) announced today that it will pay $30.00 per $1,000 principal amount of its Zero Coupon Zero Yield Convertible Notes Due 2032 (the "Notes") to registered noteholders who have not, as of immediately following the close of business on July 31, 2009, exercised their right to require Omnicom to purchase their notes or who have exercised their right to require Omnicom to repurchase their notes but have withdrawn this request before the close of business on August 3, 2009. The payment will be made to qualifying noteholders on August 6, 2009. Omnicom issued $900 million of these Notes in 2002, of which approximately $727 million is currently outstanding.

The record date for determining the holders of the Notes eligible to receive the payment of $30.00 per $1,000 principal amount of the Notes will be immediately after the close of business on July 31, 2009. Holders who purchased Notes on July 28, 2009 subject to 3-day settlement will be considered a record holder of Notes for this purpose and will receive the payment. Holders who purchased Notes after July 28, 2009 subject to 3-day settlement will not be eligible to receive the payment. Holders who tender their notes for purchase by Omnicom on or before the close of business on July 31, 2009 and who do not withdraw the tender by the close of business on August 3, 2009 will not receive the payment.

The payment of $30.00 per $1,000 principal amount of the Notes represents a spread of approximately 250 basis points over the current yield to maturity on the United States Treasury Bill due July 29, 2010.
