Fiera Capital announces closing of acquisitions of Bel Air Investment Advisors 
and Wilkinson O'Grady & Co 
MONTREAL, Oct. 31, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - October 31, 2013 - Fiera Capital 
Corporation ("Fiera" or the "Firm") (TSX: FSZ) announced today that it has 
completed its previously announced acquisitions of Los Angeles, California 
based Bel Air Investment Advisors LLC as well as its affiliate Bel Air 
Securities LLC (collectively "Bel Air"), and New York based investment manager 
Wilkinson O'Grady & Co., Inc. ("Wilkinson O'Grady") (the "Transactions"). 
These acquisitions add approximately C$8.5 billion in assets under management 
to Fiera's private wealth sector. 
The aggregate purchase price in connection with the Transactions amounted to 
approximately US$156.25 million. The purchase price for the Bel Air 
acquisition was approximately US$125 million, subject to post-closing 
adjustments, including US$115 million in cash. The remaining US$10 million 
will be paid to the selling partners by issuing new Fiera Class A subordinate 
voting shares ("Class A Shares") over a 32-month period. US$15million of the 
cash consideration is being held in escrow for a period of three years. The 
purchase price for the Wilkinson O'Grady acquisition was approximately 
US$31.25 million consisting of US$29.7 million in cash and US$1.6 million 
worth of new Class A Shares issued to certain selling shareholders. 
The purchase price was financed using the net proceeds from the Firm's 
previously announced C$105 million private placements of subscription 
receipts, completed partly through a syndicate of underwriters co-led by 
National Bank Financial Inc. and GMP Securities L.P. and partly with Natcan 
Investment Management Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of National Bank of 
Canada, as well as from amended credit facilities. Under Fiera's amended 
credit facilities, the revolving facility was increased from C$20 million to 
C$75 million and the term loan was decreased to C$175 million from C$180 
million. Approximately C$50 million was drawn by Fiera under its revolving 
facility to finance the Transactions. 
Each subscription receipt will be exchanged, without additional payment, for 
one Class A Share. Holders of subscription receipts do not need to take any 
action in order to receive the Class A Shares to which they are entitled. As 
the subscription receipts were sold on a private placement basis, the Class A 
Shares are subject to a statutory resale restriction until January 19, 2014.
