INFORMATION REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING DISCLOSURE
This quarterly report on Form 10-Q contains forward-looking statements. Statements in this report that are not historical facts, including statements about management’s beliefs and expectations, constitute forward-looking statements. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, words such as “may,” “will,” “expect,” “believe,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “could,” “would,” “estimate,” “continue” or comparable terminology are intended to identify forward-looking statements. These statements are based on current plans, estimates and projections, and are subject to change based on a number of factors, including those outlined under Item 1A, Risk Factors, in our most recent annual report on Form 10-K. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made and we undertake no obligation to update publicly any of them in light of new information or future events.
Forward-looking statements involve inherent risks and uncertainties. A number of important factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statement. Such factors include, but are not limited to, the following:
potential effects of a challenging economy, for example, on the demand for our advertising and marketing services, on our clients’ financial condition and on our business or financial condition;
our ability to attract new clients and retain existing clients;
our ability to retain and attract key employees;
risks associated with assumptions we make in connection with our critical accounting estimates, including changes in assumptions associated with any effects of a weakened economy;
potential adverse effects if we are required to recognize impairment charges or other adverse accounting-related developments;
risks associated with the effects of global, national and regional economic and political conditions, including counterparty risks and fluctuations in economic growth rates, interest rates and currency exchange rates; and
developments from changes in the regulatory and legal environment for advertising and marketing and communications services companies around the world.
Investors should carefully consider these factors and the additional risk factors outlined in more detail under Item 1A, Risk Factors, in our most recent annual report on Form 10-K.

Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements
(Amounts in Millions, Except Per Share Amounts)
(Unaudited)
Note 1:  Basis of Presentation
The unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements have been prepared by The Interpublic Group of Companies, Inc. and its subsidiaries (the “Company,” “IPG,” “we,” “us” or “our”) in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("U.S. GAAP") and pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) for reporting interim financial information on Form 10-Q. Accordingly, they do not include certain information and disclosures required for complete financial statements. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires us to make judgments, assumptions and estimates that affect the amounts reported and disclosed. Actual results could differ from these estimates and assumptions. The consolidated results for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results for the full year and should be read in conjunction with our 2011 Annual Report on Form 10-K.
In the opinion of management, these unaudited Consolidated Financial Statements include all adjustments of a normal and recurring nature necessary for a fair statement of the information for each period contained therein. Certain reclassifications have been made to prior-period financial statements to conform to the current-period presentation.

On March 15, 2013, holders of our 4.75% Convertible Senior Notes due 2023 (the “4.75% Notes”) may require us to repurchase their notes for cash at par, and accordingly, we included these notes in the current portion of long-term debt on our June 30, 2012 unaudited Consolidated Balance Sheet. The 4.75% Notes are redeemable in whole or in part at our option beginning March 15, 2013. Any 4.75% Notes not repurchased on March 15, 2013 or called for redemption by us will be reclassified to long-term debt. We included our 4.25% Convertible Senior Notes due 2023 (the “4.25% Notes”) in the current portion of long-term debt on our December 31, 2011 Consolidated Balance Sheet because holders of the 4.25% Notes had a repurchase option on March 15, 2012 for cash at par.

Debt Transactions
4.00% Senior Notes due 2022
In March 2012, we issued $250.0 in aggregate principal amount of 4.00% Senior Notes due 2022 (the "4.00% Notes") at a discount to par. As a result, the 4.00% Notes were reflected on our unaudited Consolidated Balance Sheet at a fair value of $246.8 at issuance. The discount of $3.2 is amortized through the maturity date of March 15, 2022. Interest is payable semi-annually in arrears on March 15th and September 15th of each year, commencing on September 15, 2012. Capitalized direct fees, including commissions and offering expenses, of $2.5 related to the issuance of the 4.00% Notes are amortized in interest expense through the maturity date. Consistent with our other debt securities, the 4.00% Notes include covenants that, among other things, limit our liens and the liens of certain of our consolidated subsidiaries, but do not require us to maintain any financial ratios or specified levels of net worth or liquidity. We used the proceeds to repurchase and redeem our 4.25% Notes as described below.

8

Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements – (continued)
(Amounts in Millions, Except Per Share Amounts)
(Unaudited)

At any time, at our option, we may redeem all or some of the 4.00% Notes at the greater of the principal amount and a "make-whole" amount, plus, in either case, accrued and unpaid interest to the date of redemption. If we experience a change of control event, we must offer to repurchase the 4.00% Notes in cash at a price equal to not less than 101% of the aggregate principal amount of the 4.00% Notes, plus accrued and unpaid interest to the date of repurchase.

4.25% Convertible Senior Notes due 2023
In March 2012, we retired $400.0 in aggregate principal amount of our 4.25% Notes through redemption, repurchases and conversions into Interpublic common stock. Of the amount retired, $399.6 in aggregate principal amount was redeemed or repurchased for cash at par plus accrued interest of $0.5. The remaining $0.4 in aggregate principal amount of our 4.25% Notes was converted, at the election of the 4.25% Note holders, into Interpublic common stock at a conversion rate of 82.4612 shares (actual number) per $1,000 (actual number) principal amount of the 4.25% Notes, or approximately 30,000 shares (actual number). The retirement of our 4.25% Notes will eliminate approximately 33.0 shares of common stock from our eligible diluted share count.

Convertible Senior Notes
The conversion rate of our 4.75% Notes is subject to adjustment in specified circumstances, including any payment of cash dividends on our common stock. During the second quarter of 2012, the conversion rate for our 4.75% Notes was adjusted from 82.4612 (actual number) to 83.3669 (actual number) as a result of the cumulative effect of the cash dividends declared and paid on our common stock during the first half of 2012, resulting in a corresponding adjustment of the conversion price from $12.13 to $12.00.

Capped Call
In November 2010 we purchased capped call options to hedge the risk of price appreciation on the shares of our common stock into which our 4.75% Notes are convertible.  During the second quarter of 2012, the strike price and cap price related to the capped call options were adjusted due to the payment of cash dividends on our common stock. As of June 30, 2012, the options give us the right to purchase up to 16.7 shares of our common stock at a strike price of $12.00 per share (previously $12.13), except that the economic benefit to us of exercising the options will not exceed the difference between the strike price and the adjusted cap price of $17.64 per share (previously $17.83).  

Interest Rate Swaps
We enter into interest rate swaps to manage our exposure to changes in interest rates. In the first half of 2012, we entered into forward-starting interest rate swap agreements with an aggregate notional amount of $300.0 to effectively lock in the benchmark rate for a forecasted issuance of debt to occur prior to December 31, 2013. These swaps qualify for hedge accounting as cash flow hedges, and, as such, the effective portion of gains or losses on the swaps are recorded in other comprehensive income and recognized in earnings over the life of the related debt issuance or when the hedged transaction is determined to be ineffective. 
The following table presents the fair value of our interest rate swap agreements on our unaudited Consolidated Balance Sheets.

Credit Facilities
We maintain a committed corporate credit facility to increase our financial flexibility (the "Credit Agreement"). The Credit Agreement is a revolving facility expiring in May 2016, under which amounts borrowed by us or any of our subsidiaries designated under the Credit Agreement may be repaid and reborrowed, subject to an aggregate lending limit of $1,000.0 or the equivalent in other currencies. The aggregate available amount of letters of credit outstanding may decrease or increase, subject to a sublimit on letters of credit of $200.0 or the equivalent in other currencies. Our obligations under the Credit Agreement are unsecured.
We were in compliance with all of our covenants in the Credit Agreement as of June 30, 2012.

Note 3:  Convertible Preferred Stock
The conversion rate of our 5 1/4% Series B Cumulative Convertible Perpetual Preferred Stock (the "Series B Preferred Stock")is subject to adjustment upon the occurrence of certain events, including the payment of cash dividends on our common stock. During the first quarter of 2012, the conversion rate per share for our Series B Preferred Stock was adjusted from 74.4500 to 75.3568 as a result of the cumulative effect of the cash dividends declared and paid on our common stock during the fourth quarter of 2011 and first quarter of 2012, resulting in a corresponding adjustment of the conversion price from $13.43 to $13.27. There was no additional adjustment required to the conversion rate in the second quarter of 2012.

Note 5:  Acquisitions
We continue to evaluate strategic opportunities to grow and to increase our ownership interests in current investments, particularly in our digital and marketing services offerings, and to expand our presence in high-growth and key strategic markets. Our acquisitions typically provide for an initial payment at the time of closing and additional contingent purchase price payments based on the future performance of the acquired entity. Due to the characteristics of advertising, specialized marketing and communication services companies, our acquisitions typically do not have significant amounts of tangible assets, as the principal asset we typically acquire is talent. As a result, a substantial portion of the purchase price of these acquisitions is allocated to identifiable intangible assets, primarily customer lists and trade names, and goodwill.
During the first half of 2012, we completed six acquisitions, most notably a healthcare market research and consulting agency and a search marketing agency in the United Kingdom. Of our six acquisitions, three were included in the Integrated Agency Networks (“IAN”) operating segment and three were included in the Constituency Management Group (“CMG”) operating segment. During the first half of 2012, we recorded approximately $79.0 of goodwill and intangible assets related to these acquisitions.
During the first half of 2011, we completed nine acquisitions, most notably a digital marketing agency in the United Kingdom. All nine acquisitions were included in the IAN operating segment. During the first half of 2011, we recorded approximately $22.0 of goodwill and intangible assets related to these acquisitions.
All acquired agencies have been integrated into one of our global networks or existing agencies. The results of operations of our acquired companies were included in our consolidated results from the closing date of each acquisition. Details of cash paid for current and prior years' acquisitions are listed below.

These amounts relate to increases in our ownership interests in our consolidated subsidiaries, as well as deferred payments for acquisitions that closed on or after January 1, 2009. Of the total cash paid, $51.6 and $38.6 for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively, are classified under the investing section of the unaudited Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows within acquisitions, including deferred payments, net of cash acquired. These amounts relate to initial payments for new transactions and deferred payments for acquisitions that closed prior to January 1, 2009.

Restricted Marketable Securities
In the second quarter of 2012, Facebook completed an initial public offering. Prior to the public offering, our investment in Facebook was recorded on our Consolidated Balance Sheet at cost of $1.2. As a result of the public offering, our investment in Facebook was transferred from non-current assets to restricted marketable securities, designated as available-for-sale securities, and carried at fair value. Unrealized gains from available-for-sale securities are reported as a component of accumulated other comprehensive loss, net of tax, in stockholders' equity. While the Facebook investment is classified as marketable, available-for-sale securities, we are restricted from selling these shares for a period of six months from the date of the public offering.
As of June 30, 2012, we owned 4.4 shares of Facebook and the fair value of this investment was $136.0. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, we recorded an unrealized gain of $134.8 in other comprehensive income.

2004 Restatement Liabilities
As part of the restatement we presented in our 2004 Annual Report on Form 10-K (the “2004 Restatement”), we recognized liabilities related to vendor discounts and credits where we had a contractual or legal obligation to rebate such amounts to our clients or vendors. Reductions to these liabilities are achieved through settlements with clients and vendors, but also may occur if the applicable statute of limitations in a jurisdiction has lapsed. As of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, we had vendor discounts and credit liabilities of $42.0 and $55.5, respectively, related to the 2004 Restatement.

Sales of Businesses and Investments – During the first half of 2012, we recognized a loss relating to the sale of a business in the domestic market within our IAN segment, which was partially offset by a gain recognized in the second quarter of 2012 relating to the sale of a business in an international market within our CMG segment. During the first half of 2011, we recognized a loss relating to the sale of a business in the domestic market within our IAN segment.
Vendor Discounts and Credit Adjustments – We are in the process of settling our liabilities related to vendor discounts and credits established as part of the 2004 Restatement. These adjustments reflect the reversal of certain of these liabilities as a result of settlements with clients or vendors or where the statute of limitations has lapsed.

Share Repurchase Program
In February 2012, our Board of Directors (the “Board”) authorized a new share repurchase program to repurchase from time to time up to $300.0, excluding fees, of our common stock (the "2012 share repurchase program"). In 2011, the Board authorized a share repurchase program to repurchase from time to time up to $450.0, excluding fees, of our common stock (the "2011 share repurchase program"). We may effect such repurchases through open market purchases, trading plans established in accordance with SEC rules, derivative transactions or other means.

Note 7:  Income Taxes
For the three months ended June 30, 2012, our effective income tax rate of 32.3% was negatively impacted by losses in certain foreign locations for which we receive no tax benefit due to 100% valuation allowances. In addition, for the second quarter, a $26.2 valuation allowance associated with the Asia Pacific region was reversed. The reversal was partially offset by an adjustment of $19.5 associated with the establishment of a previously unrecorded reserve for a tax contingency for the years 2007 through 2010.
In addition to the factors noted above, for the six months ended June 30, 2012, our effective income tax rate of 34.4% was positively impacted by a benefit derived from the deduction of foreign tax credits that were previously fully valued and the reversal of certain valuation allowances in Europe. 
We have various tax years under examination by tax authorities in various countries, and in various states, such as New York, in which we have significant business operations. It is not yet known whether these examinations will, in the aggregate, result in our paying additional taxes. We believe our tax reserves are adequate in relation to the potential for additional assessments in each of the jurisdictions in which we are subject to taxation. We regularly assess the likelihood of additional tax assessments in those jurisdictions and, if necessary, adjust our reserves as additional information or events require.
With respect to all tax years open to examination by U.S. federal, various state and local, and non-U.S. tax authorities, we currently anticipate that total unrecognized tax benefits will decrease by an amount between $5.0 and $15.0 in the next twelve

months, a portion of which will affect our effective income tax rate, primarily as a result of the settlement of tax examinations and the lapsing of statutes of limitations. This net decrease is related to various items of income and expense, primarily transfer pricing adjustments.
We are effectively settled with respect to U.S. income tax audits for years prior to 2009. With limited exceptions, we are no longer subject to state and local income tax audits for years prior to 1999, or non-U.S. income tax audits for years prior to 2004.

Note 8:  Incentive Compensation Plans
We issue stock-based compensation and cash awards to our employees under a plan established by the Compensation and Leadership Talent Committee of the Board of Directors (the “Compensation Committee”) and approved by our shareholders.
We issued the following stock-based awards under the 2009 Performance Incentive Plan (the “2009 PIP”) during the six months ended June 30, 2012.

During the six months ended June 30, 2012, the Compensation Committee granted performance cash awards under the 2009 PIP with a total target value of $70.7. Of this amount, awards with a total target value of $33.4 will be settled in shares upon vesting. The number of shares to be settled on the vesting date will be calculated as the cash value adjusted for performance divided by our stock price on the vesting date. Additionally, during the six months ended June 30, 2012, the Compensation Committee granted cash awards under the Interpublic Restricted Cash Plan with a total target value of $2.1. Cash awards are amortized over the vesting period, typically three years.

Note 9:  Employee Benefits
We have a defined benefit pension plan (the “Domestic Pension Plan”) that covers certain U.S. employees. We also have numerous funded and unfunded plans outside the U.S. The Interpublic Pension Plan in the U.K. is a defined benefit plan and is our most material foreign pension plan in terms of the benefit obligation and plan assets. Some of our domestic and foreign subsidiaries provide postretirement health benefits and life insurance to eligible employees and, in certain cases, their dependents. The domestic postretirement benefit plan is our most material postretirement benefit plan in terms of the benefit obligation. Certain immaterial foreign pension and postretirement benefit plans have been excluded from the table below.
The components of net periodic cost for the Domestic Pension Plan, the significant foreign pension plans and the domestic postretirement benefit plan are listed below.

During the six months ended June 30, 2012, we contributed $3.4 and $8.6 of cash to our domestic and foreign pension plans, respectively. For the remainder of 2012, we expect to contribute approximately $2.0 and $8.0 of cash to our domestic and foreign pension plans, respectively.

Note 10:  Segment Information
We have two reportable segments, IAN and CMG. IAN is comprised of McCann Worldgroup, Draftfcb, Lowe & Partners, Mediabrands and our domestic integrated agencies. CMG is comprised of a number of our specialist marketing services offerings. We also report results for the “Corporate and other” group. The profitability measure employed by our chief operating decision maker for allocating resources to operating divisions and assessing operating division performance is operating income, excluding the impact of restructuring and other reorganization-related reversals (charges), net and long-lived asset impairment and other charges, if applicable. Other than certain reclassifications, the segment information is presented consistently with the basis described in our 2011 Annual Report on Form 10-K.

Note 11:  Fair Value Measurements
Authoritative guidance for fair value measurements establishes a fair value hierarchy which requires us to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. There are three levels of inputs that may be used to measure fair value:
Level 1
  
Unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities. An active market for the asset or liability is a market in which transactions for the asset or liability occur with sufficient frequency and volume to provide pricing information on an ongoing basis.
 
 
Level 2
  
Observable inputs other than Level 1 prices, such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities; quoted prices in markets that are not active; or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities.
 
 
 
Level 3
  
Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the assets or liabilities.
Financial Instruments that are Measured at Fair Value on a Recurring Basis
We primarily apply the market approach to determine the fair value of financial instruments that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis. There were no changes to our valuation techniques used to determine the fair value of financial instruments during the six months ended June 30, 2012. The following tables present information about our financial instruments measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of June 30, 2012 and June 30, 2011, and indicates the fair value hierarchy of the valuation techniques utilized to determine such fair value.
