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:

Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
The taxi industry never saw Uber coming.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
Cloud applications are seeing a deluge of requests to support the exploding advanced analytics market. “Open analytics” is the emerging strategy to deliver that data through an open data access layer, in the cloud, to be directly consumed by external analytics tools and popular programming languages. An increasing number of data engineers and data scientists use a variety of platforms and advanced analytics languages such as SAS, R, Python and Java, as well as frameworks such as Hadoop and Spark...
