Four to See Payout After Publicis Acquisition

Published on .

NEW YORK (AdAge.com) -- Four top Bcom3 Group leaders are poised to pocket a combined $300 million-plus when Publicis Groupe buys Bcom3, Advertising Age sibling Crain's Chicago Business reports today.

The four are Chairman-CEO Roger Haupt, President-Chief Operating Officer Craig Brown, former Vice Chairman Richard Fizdale and former Chairman Roy Bostock.

The payout is subject to changes in the value of Publicis stock and other securities. But a recent Publicis filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, using valuations from when the deal was announced in March, shows the executives would rake in a total of $312.5 million in cash, stock and other securities.

Bcom3 declined to comment.
