Omnicom Group Inc. (NYSE: OMC) and Publicis Groupe SA (OTC: PUBGY) today announced that the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended, ("HSR") has expired in connection with the previously announced merger of Publicis Groupe and Omnicom. The companies also announced the receipt of approvals from regulatory authorities in Canada, India, and Turkey. These clearances follow previously disclosed approvals in South Africa and South Korea. The expiration of the HSR review period in the U.S. and the approvals received in other jurisdictions satisfy some of the conditions necessary for the transaction to close. The merger is also subject to additional global regulatory approvals and approval by shareholders of both companies. The proposed merger of Publicis Groupe and Omnicom will create a best-in-class provider of communications, advertising, marketing, and digital services, offering clients the industry's leading talent across disciplines and geographies.
