New York, NY - February 12, 2016 - Interpublic Group (NYSE: IPG) today announced
that the company's Board of Directors has declared a quarterly dividend on IPG
common stock of $0.15 per share, payable on March 15, 2016 to holders of record
at the close of business on March 1, 2016. The increase in the dividend from

Additionally, the company's Board of Directors authorized a new program to
repurchase, from time to time, up to $300 million of IPG common stock. The
authorization under the new program is in addition to any amounts remaining for
repurchase under the program announced in 2015. Repurchases under the new
program may be effected through open market purchases, trading plans established
in accordance with SEC rules, derivative transactions, or other means. The

build on a sustained capital return program that IPG initiated in 2011. Since
that time, we have returned a total of $2.5 billion to shareholders through a
combination of dividends and share repurchase, and reduced our outstanding
shares eligible for dilution by over 25%. Today's announcement demonstrates our
continued confidence in the financial and operational strength of IPG."
