NEW YORK, July 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- CBS Corporation (NYSE: CBS.A and CBS) today announced the final results of its offer to shareholders to exchange their shares of CBS Class B Common stock for up to 97 million shares of CBS Outdoor Americas Inc. (NYSE: CBSO) common stock that are owned by CBS.

The exchange offer expired at 12:00 midnight, New York City time, on July 9, 2014. Under the terms of the offer, 2.1689 shares of CBS Outdoor common stock will be exchanged for each share of CBS Class B common stock accepted in the offer. CBS accepted 44,723,131 of the tendered shares in exchange for 97 million shares of CBS Outdoor common stock owned by CBS.

Because the exchange offer was oversubscribed, CBS accepted tendered shares of CBS Class B common stock on a pro rata basis in proportion to the total number of shares validly tendered and not validly withdrawn. Shareholders who owned fewer than 100 shares of CBS Class B common stock, or an "odd lot," and who validly tendered all of their shares, were not subject to proration in accordance with the terms of the exchange offer. All of such shares have been accepted. The final proration factor of approximately 14.7740% was applied to all other shares of CBS Class B common stock that were validly tendered and not validly withdrawn to determine the number of such shares that have been accepted from each tendering shareholder.

Based on the final count by the exchange agent Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., the final result of the exchange offer are as follows:


Total number of shares of CBS Class B common stock validly tendered and not validly withdrawn: 

300,229,143

Shares tendered that were subject to proration:

299,798,292

"Odd-lot" shares tendered that were not subject to proration:

430,851

Total number of shares of CBS Class B common stock accepted:

44,723,131

The exchange agent is expected to deliver shares of CBS Outdoor common stock as follows: (1) with respect to shares tendered through the Depository Trust Company (DTC), to the account of DTC on July 16, 2014, so that DTC can credit each applicable DTC participant (and such participant can credit its respective account holders promptly thereafter), and (2) with respect to shares tendered outside DTC, to the direct registered accounts of the respective holders by July 21, 2014. The exchange agent will mail checks in lieu of fractional shares of CBS Outdoor common stock to tendering holders with fractional interests after the exchange agent has aggregated all fractional shares and sold them in the open market. Shares of CBS stock tendered but not accepted for exchange will be returned to tendering shareholders in book-entry form.
