Omnicom will also receive a special dividend of $2.00 per share. There may be up to two small subsequent dividends of $0.40 per share, however there is no guarantee of such payments. Publicis shareholders will receive a one full, newly-issued ordinary share of Publicis Omnicom Group for each Publicis share they own. Publicis shareholders will also receive a special dividend of 1.00 euro per share. The transaction has a total approximate value of $35 billion.
