Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure.

 

On March 23, 2022, Stagwell Inc. (the “Company”) issued a press release regarding the Repurchase Program (as defined below). A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

 

This Item 7.01 and Exhibit 99.1 are being furnished and shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall they be deemed incorporated by reference into any other filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.

 

Item 8.01. Other Events.

 

On March 23, 2022, the Company announced that its board of directors has authorized a stock repurchase program (the “Repurchase Program”) under which it may repurchase up to $125.0 million of shares of its outstanding Class A common stock. The Repurchase Program will expire on March 23, 2025.

 

Under the Repurchase Program, share repurchases may be made at the Company’s discretion from time to time in open market transactions at prevailing market prices (including through trading plans that may be adopted in accordance with Rule 10b5-1 of the Exchange Act), in privately negotiated transactions, or through other means. The timing and number of shares repurchased under the Repurchase Program will depend on a variety of factors, including the performance of the Company’s stock price, general market and economic conditions, regulatory requirements, the availability of funds, and other considerations the Company deems relevant. The Repurchase Program may be suspended, modified or discontinued at any time without prior notice. The Company’s board of directors will review the Repurchase Program periodically and may authorize adjustments of its terms.
