CBS Outdoor Launches IPO Roadshow

NEW YORK, March 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- CBS Outdoor Americas Inc. ("CBSO"), the outdoor advertising subsidiary of CBS Corporation, announced that today it launched a road show for its initial public offering ("IPO").

CBSO is offering 20 million shares of its common stock, and underwriters will have a 30-day option to buy an additional three million shares. The IPO price is currently expected to be between $26 and $28 per share, and the shares are expected to trade on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol, "CBSO."

After the IPO, CBS Corporation will own approximately 83% of CBSO (or approximately 81% of the outstanding stock of CBSO if underwriters exercise their option to purchase additional shares in full). CBSO plans to convert into a real estate investment trust ("REIT") later this year, following CBS's divestiture of its shares through a tax-free split-off.

CBSO expects to use the net proceeds from the IPO as partial consideration to CBS for the contribution of the outdoor business entities as well as the cash portion of the distribution to shareholders required in connection with the conversion to a REIT.

Goldman, Sachs & Co., BofA Merrill Lynch, J.P. Morgan, and Morgan Stanley are acting as joint book-running managers, and Citigroup, Deutsche Bank Securities, and Wells Fargo Securities are acting as book runners.

The offering is being made by means of a prospectus.  The preliminary prospectus can be obtained from:
